-ANARCHY IS RAMPAN I
A Mass Meeting in Honor of
the Chicago leaders.
BED AKD BLACK ABOUNDED

Terj Carious People.
THE AMERICAN FLAG WAS IGNORED
Inflammatory Speeches Delivered in En
glish and German.
LIGHTED TABLEAUX WERE A FEATCEE
The Anarchist of Pittsburg met at La
fayette Hall last night, and some 500 of him
showed np, including women and children.
Blood red tickets at 25c each were sold at
the door and red noses illuminated the hall,
while the general rubicund hue was re
flected in pink programmes. The breats of
the committee in charge of the celebration
were decorated with red ribbons and the
galleries were draped with red and black
ilaes. , , .
That the meeting was one of foreigners
was evidenced, no less by the total absence
otiUnited States flags in the display than bv
the incendiary phrases of "swei bier" and
other attacks on the constitutions of the
country and the partakers of the revolution
ary beverage. Tne stage was decorated also
with red and black flags, two large ones
hanging from each side of the proscenium
arch, while in the center was a diagram
labeled, "Arms of the TJnited States."
The desiens consisted of two policemen
rampant, with clnbs and uniforms azure,
supporting a gallowsconcbantasa curiosity
in Allegheny county witn the nickle coin
age inscription misquoted, "In These God's
We Trust," on a scroll pendant. On the
left of the stage was a plaster tablet show
ing alto relievo casts of Spies, Engel, Lingg,
Parsons and Fischer, in the memory of
whose execution two years ago in Chicago,
the entertainment was given. On the right
of the stage an extract from Spies' soeech

"While the preparations were being made
for the performance Onido Haas stood in
front of the stage and explained the ab
sence of United States flags from the dccsia
tions by saying that it was under the" Gov
ernment represented by that flag that the
"martyrs" were "murdered" and that the
Anarchists had no f urtner use for the flag
under which their friends were murdered.
The prevalence of young girls and women,
many of the latter carrying infants in their
arms, was a peculiar feature of the audience.
The majority ot them had their hair dressed
with red ribbons, while red flowers and mil
linery eenerally formed the staple of the hat
Henry Brown opened the proceedings with
the announcement that the lady who was
billed to sing the "Marseillaise" was indis
posed, but a number of selections on the
piano were played by Mrs. Noll. This was
followed bran adaptation of the "Marseil
laise," consisting of 15 verses, sung bv Herr
Brinkhoff, accompanied on the zither by
Herr Hiscnn. With the exception of a
voluntary accompaniment from a baby in
the gallery, the singing of the Marseillaise,
like the elections of last Tuesday, "parsed
off quietly." Herr Kupperberg was next
en the list as an orator. He presented very
much the appearance of one of those heads
formerly used in the crude electric experi
ments of 30 years ago while under the ac
tion of the current, his hair standing erect,
each one on its own roots, and a pair of
spectacles astride his nose, which flashed
with the power of a pair of incandescent
lights when animated by the subject of his
discourse. Otherwise he appeared as a very
mild-mannered Anarchist in a Prince Al
bert coat, clean collar and a fashionable
silk necktie, while a pair of immaculate
cuffs and gigantic sleeve stud: accentuated
the remarks that follow:
THE OLD MAN'S SPEECH.
Mr. Hohenthal, stepping to the front of
v the staee, requested the assembly to take off
their bats and cease smoking in consideration
of the solemnity of the celebration. Then
he introduced "Herr B. Kupferberg, the
German speaker of the evening, who at
once opened his oration.
"My friends," he commenced, "do not make
the mistake ot imagining that you are assem
bled here to-night to honor criminals; nol bnt
martyrs. They died, because they had the
courage of their convictions. They stood np
against the powers who have forever been try
ing to trample under their feet tbenrkirig
classes. Tbey died because tbey attempted to
enlighten the people of the wrongs they are
euffennc. They died because tbey called at
tention to tneir snnerings. :c. mat is tne
reason these martyrs had to lose their lives at
The speaker then gave a short historical
sketch of the occurrences in Chicago two years
ago, which cventnally culminated in the hang
ing of the Anarchists. He laid especial stress
upon the assertion that these men. who had
died at the gallows, w ere innocent of every
thing except talking to the workingmen. lie
taid, that the bomb thrower had not jet been
found, and tbat none of the five martyrs had
been accused of having thrown the bombs.
HE DENOUNCED BONFIELD.
He called Bonfiela a thief and a scoundrel,
and said that he really had been the cause of
the horror on the Haymarket.
"And how was it that Bonfleld," he con-J
tinued, "did give tne command to uii police
men to attack that mass in the Haymarket?
He was in the pay of the capitalists he was the
tool of the oppressors. Were there any j notice
or liberty in this countrj, Bor.nelu would have
been cxecu ed at the callows and monuments
of glorification would have been erected in
honor of those five men who were so w rongf ully
&5Ha&inated. Great applause.
".AS regards that trial In the Chicago courts
the entire affair was nothing bet a farce.
There was do crime charged agaln&t these men;
tfeev were not hanged because they had com
rnitted a murder; no! tbey were sacrificed to
satisfy the greed and bl.Kidtliirsty appetite of
the capitalists. It landless to sav that tbey

J ow then, who are we to accuse of the crime

martyrs? Arc we to call the jury to account?
Are we to accuse tbo policemen? Nol it would
bo useless to attempt to enumerate them.
There Is not a hall in this world large enough
to hold them all. But one thing I must say,
had the poople not allowed themselves to be
hoodwinked by the capitalistic press: were the
unfortunate masses not steeped in darkest,
most appalling ignorance, then that deed of
killing the heroes of the Chicago gallows would
never haie be ;n perpetrated.
HIS EFFOKT TICKLED THE3I.
During the progress of the address, which
consisted principally of a review of the Chi
cago Anarchistic tragedy, the order was al
most perfect, with the exception of whispered
comments commendatory of the sentiments
expressed. Herr Fncke was one of the most
prominent features of the meeting, espe
cially dnring the addresses, and moved from
point to point, drawing attention to the
strong points from his standpoint as they
were made, and when waves of applause
drowned the voices ot the speakers the flow
was generally observed to start Jrom the
direction in which he stood.
The Yorwaerts Gesangverein, consisting
of IS singers and a leader, then sang, "Hur
rah lor Freedom," in German, which was
enthusiastically received. Mrs. Noll then
sang "Annie Laurie" with the most pro
nouncedly un-Scottish accent attainable ou
short notice. The lady, seemed to enter with
Tim into a time contest with the piano and
come out a neck ahead at the close of every
James Gilmore introduced Henry Brown
by asking that the audience divest itself of
all prejudices against anarchy iUelf, and
listen to its exponents with a fair and un
biased mind: - .
THAT CHICAGO CRIME. f
It is an unqualified outrage to charge -the
throwing of the Haymarket bombs upon tbo
Anarchists. The man who threw the bomb is
to this day unknown, although eight friends of
labor were picked out and murdered for the
crime. Judge Gerry, before whom they were
charged, and who sentenced them afterward,
admitted that tbey were not convicted, but
sentenced because they wrote newspaper arti
cles and made speeches to the workingmen and
in favor of the laboring classes. It is easy un
dertho present disposition of things to bang a
man for speaking to the working classes if the
speeches do not accord with the wishes of
the rulers aud capitalists.
We meet here to-night to denounce the brutal
outrage and murder committed on five work
ingmen November 1L 1SS7. This outrage was
committed because they taught their rights to
the workingmen anddaredto encourage their
enforcement. Applause.) It makes no differ
ence to the powers that be whether the work
ingman's children have shoes, so long as the
capitalists can luxuriate in palaces. But the
strongest power with which tho work-
ingman has to contend in his straggle
for rights is the dillv boodle press.
All through the trial of our martyrs
the daily press condemned them, andhowled for
their blood under instructions from the mas
ters who control it. But for the cry for popu
lar condemnation from the press those five
men would not have been murdered, that
atrocious deed never have been committed.
But their souls, like that of the great John
Brown, are srlt marching along. We took up
tbeir life woik and we mean to perfect it.
Wild applause and enthusiasm.
The President has appointed a lav of general
thanksgiving in which all arc commended to
participate. We have appointed a day of
hatred against our oppressors. Cheers Let
us honor the memory of these heroes on this
and all similar occasions bv perpetuating the
principles of fcpies, Ungel, Lingg, Parsons and
nscher. This shall be our endeavor, and this
shall finally be our triumph. Tbis meeting is
held under the anspiees of the International
Workingtnen's Association, which to-day
numbers hundreds of thousands all
over the world, which to-day meets in
every country and every city to perpetuate onr
condemnation of the injustice done the work
ingman. That the societary conditions now
existing require the heroic remedy of revolu
tion you all knuw. Wo have tried the strike,
the boycott, arbitration, balloting, and where
have they left us? Tbo power of the ballot in
free America is a perfect mockery, as it is con
trolled by the powers of the capitalist. We
have tried it. and where has it left us to-day ?
A Voice In tho soup.
DENOUNCING THE BALLOT.
We hold, as Anarchists, that if the ballot
were worth the room it takes up as a weapon,
Bismarck or Napoleon would never have per
mitted its use. It is nothing but an instrument
through which the slavery of the workingman
is maae possible and kept permanent. Those
who control the money, the prodnct of labor's
work, the food of labor's children, control the
vote. The ballot falls powerless from the hand
that holds no bread.
If this infamous system must be changed,
and that it must, we insist, let us commence
at the economic basis aud the political will
follow. As the martyred Fischer said, this
change cannot be made by sawing the air with
pieces of paper. Strikes are practically use
less, as nine-tenths of them are whole or
partial failures. What is arbitration? The
boss puts up a notice in his factory
that a itt per cent reduction in wages must be
made. The men and the bosses meet, that is if
the bosses will condescend to do so, which they
seldom will, and a compromise is effected on a
10 per cent basis, the men losing and the bosses
making 10 per cent. That's now arbitration
works. These fact alone should be enough to
convert workers into Anarchists.
He then rcvievcdthe advent of machinery
into the labor maket, displacing skilled work
men and nuking the workman tbo slave of
machines. The owner of the new and improved
machinery says it helps the workman to ease,
but instead of ease it produces noth
ing but misery, poverty and-hell for
the people. With what shall We replace
arbitiation? ,A German General, whose troops
were being mowed down by the French guns
danng the Franco-Prussian war, rallied bis
men by shouting: "Those guns can do us no
harm once we get them into our possession.
Press on." That is what I repeat to the An
archists of to-day press onl Wild cheering.
Machinery can do us no harm when it is our
own. Press olI Increased excitement.
Female cheap labor, child labor and conVlct
labor will last as long as the cause producing
them exist: The international cry is that capi
tal has no rights which labor is bound to re
spect, while capital occupiesits palaces and the
workertbe hogpens. Vociferouscheenng. The
International would establish a condition of
society where all shall bo on an equality, no
rights without duties and no duties without
lights. Is this not worth fighting for, worth
dying for, as did our martyred heroes at Chi
cago? Voices "It is-It Is."
HE ADVOCATES FOECE.
A forcible social revolution is the only
remedy. Force is used upon the worker when
he defends his rights, the brute force of police,
of the soldiery and the hired assassins of Pin
ker ton. We asked for bread and tbey fed us
with lead. Wild excitement )
"Oivetbetnanne diet." sa'.d Tom Scott to
bis hired cuthroits in 1877. As the ripples on
the water precede a flood so the ripples on the
social stream to-day predict an outbreak.
Here an enthusiast in the gallery
broko out: "I'm an Anarchist and
I dont care who knows it," and
wildly waved his arms. Ho stood up as several
persons approached him, and announced his
willingness to retire, at which Mr. Broun re
marked: "He may be an Anarchist, but at all
events he is a gentleman and knows when he is
He continued his address in the same
strain for fully a half-hour to a wildly-excited
audience, which cheered and howled
at every revolutionary remark.
The second part opened with an instru
mental rendition of the Dead March in
Saul, which, with the blood-colored and
black flags, had a depressing effect on all
of the audience except the most pronounced
and professional Anarchists, who apparently
reveled in the lugubrious sounds. Bevonda
disposition on the part of a few boys in the
gallery to encore the performance, which
distinction thev would have con
ferred on anything from "Old Hundred" to
"Dixie," with the impartiality which
marks the average small boy at an enter
tainment. Mrs. Roll then gave a piano
solo with much taste and ability, and was
applauded to the echo, showing that the
present present were possessed of consider
able musical taste.
A GEKSIAN SELECTION.
A very pleasing, harmonized vocal selec
tion was given next by the Vorwaerts
Gesangverein. A recitation, "Remember
Our Dead of Chicago," was delivered in
German by Herr Brihkhofi with consider
able emphasis as well as pathos, and was
received with loud demonstrations ot ap
proval. The leading point in the address
was a comparison of the fates of the exe
cuted Anarchists with that of John Brown.
A lively and entertaining overture by
the orchestra preceded the tableaux,
which were certainly the principal objects
of interest to the younger portion of the
audience. The first tableau rep
resented tl.e past through the me
dium of a ghastly green glare cast on
the stage by a calcium light iu the gallery.
The costuming was very 'air and explained
by notes in the official programme.
The tableaux were called The Past, Pres
ent, Social Revolution aud The Future, and
were received with enthusiastic applause,
especially the Social Bevolution scene,
which represented workmen as resisting
State troops with a varied assortment of
weapons while two young ladies, attired in
white, held aloft a blood-red streamer, with
the inscription both in German nnd
English "Victory is ours," illuminated
in the most lurid manner with red fire.
Even in this scene the troops were not paid
the compliment of being allowed to carry
their own State or national colors, while
capitalists, bankers and others were danced
on generally by all the characters.

They have the petroleum fever back of
Sewickley have it badly and the staid
farmers who have heretofore depended main
ly on the sale of agricultural products to se
cure other things aud enjoy life generally,
are now too rich to farm, at least some of
them are, not all, for there are some who re
gard the find more for the bird in hand than
for the one supposed to be a third of amile
underground. The latter class is generally
well-to-do, and does not lease without a
bonus that will pay for the disfigurement of
a plantation in case insufficient oil should be
found to do it.
As in the majority of cases of this kind
there is somewhat of a mirage down that
way that disappears very largely by the
time you reach Sewickley. It has been
stated in the city for some time past that
wealthy Sewicklcyiteswere greatly troubled,
as the overflowing surge was nearing them
daily, and that in the near fnture nothing
short of the buving up and condemning of
several square miles of territory would pre
vent the greasy drillers and
smoke-begrimed tool dressers from over
running the place and defiling it. Bnt as
near as could be learned from an inspection
of the territory and from tho views ot vet
eran drillers, who, alter all, know more
about the matter than the scientists, Sewick
ley people need not lose sleep, as the con
tingency dreaded is remote. 'Twould be
terribly annoying, of course, to hive a
beautiful town like Sewickley flooded with
dirty wealth, and some of the people there,
possibly few, however, would monrn as did
the English aristocracy when the great
leveler, the locomotive, began to shriek in
the pleasant vales of Mcrric England.
THE DRILLERS DIFFER.
Though petroleum seems likely to be
found almost anywhere along the western
base of the Allegheny Mountains, the tilling
up of the strata seeming to have drained the
sand rock on the slope, vet the drillers
fonnd in the vicinity of Dufl City yesterday
all held, either that the latest develop
ment was either on the 45 line
crossing Neville Island, about four miles
above Sewickley, or that its trend would be
southwest, striking the Shamokin field.
"While the territory in this section u
spotted and a good well might be found in
Sewickley. there is no rush at present to
get leases there.
It is only seven or eight miles northeast
from Sewickley to Duff City, but if you at
tempt to follow the directions given in Se

way to gnide a stranger is.to tell him to pass
the big dairy farm with its palatial stables,
and when he gets to Sewickley creek, follow
it up nntil he comes to a sctioolhouse, and
a very poor-looking one at that; then turn
to the left and keep on in a general way
promiscuously until he sees derricks.

There is an utter absence of finger-boards,

City is the baby city in the galaxy of Penn
sylvania municipalities. It is pleasantly
situated at the base of several low hills.
Architecturally it possesses the usual oil
town variety. The substantial old farm
houses are already flanked by engine houses
and shanties, and derricks are sprouting in
all directions, both on hill and vale.
THE COMFORTS OF LIFE.
As yet there no sidewalks or pavements,
but it is said there is a full-blown poker
joint and a speak-easy in blast, though
no signs ot either were visiDie to me casual
visitor. The local butcher, a man named
Downey, stated that his sales had increased
400 per cent in the month. The city is of
the same age as that of the first big well
struck on the Duff farm. This well was
struck soon after, the equinox, about
the last of September or the first of
October. It is still flowing eight to nine
barrels an honr. Previbus to thisl a well on
the George Sohn farm was flowing at a 12
barreladayrate, when the greater part of
the territory had been previously leased by
various companies, amone them Ludecker
Bros., the Enterprise Drilling Company,
Lock & Alexander, Joe Craig, the McCal
mont Oil Company and others too numerous
to mention, some boring for oil
and others for gas, and others lor
both. Some leases were gotten very
cheap, others not so cheap and one or two
alleged lapsed leases threaten to breed law
suits. Among those who had persistently
refused to lease was .Tosenh W. Logan.
The morning after the Duff well was struck
Mr. Logan was besieged long before the dew
was off, but no promises in the way of a
share of oil had any effect upont him. He
slid that bonus of sufficient size to repay
him for anv possible trouble would fetch
him. Finding that nothing taort of cold

HE GOT HIS STUrF.
He said that a 1,G00 pole would knock
the persimmon, and a rod of that size was
shoved into his hinds on the spot, and a
lease taken. His farm is about a mile from
the Duff, on the road to Sewicklev. Mr.
Logan's head isn't swollen a particle. He
sajs his lurm yields good crops, and he
could get along without leasing, but 51,500
is a neat sum to bank. He hopes the les-.ee
will do well.
The drillers, while not agreed in their
views as to the particular belt, seemed to
pretty generally agree that it was an exten
sion of the Brush creetc sand. Some held
that it it would be found to tun on the 45
line, the one on which the Arbuxkle well is
located, while others thought it would
prove to bend toward Shamokin. f
Among the latter is Mr. Plum
mer Boyd, who is drilling a well
just beyond the Logan farm. All agreed
that it it wasn't likely to disturb ease-loving,
smell-objecting Scwickleynns. Mr. Boyd
thought the belt ran nearer Economy than
The different smd rocks have been found
as follows: At 800 feet, the 60-foot sand; at
1,400 feet, 100-Ibot, or what was in olden
times called the second sand, the one which
salt water is like to trouble, and at 1,850
feet the regular third sand. Gas is
found pretty generally in all the
strata. The well on which Mr.
Boyd is now at work, is some 800 feet down
and has a strong flow of gas, and they find
use for a considerable amount of casing.

f thing seemed to be pretty well agreed. .upon
fay drillers, and that was that the territory
was likely to prove somewhat spotted. Soma
"drillers think there may be some very large
wells struck, while the number of dry holes
will be large, bnt there is a chance for some
consolation in the amount of gas encoun
tered. In this connection it is pertinent to state
tbat in inture a much larger amount of oil
will be gotten from the second sand, it is
known to be there. In fact that sand is
the old second, the main reliance of the
old-time Venango and Warren county
drillers, and from which many millions of
barrels of oil were gotten over 20 years
ago. In this section salt water has usually
gotten into the wells in that sand and
destroyed their usefulness, but now a
shoulder is drilled so that the salt water can
be shut oil'. It is said that the shut off can
be easily accomplished.
MB. M'KELVEY'S OPINION.
It is estimated that from C.000 to 8,000
acres have been leased by various parties
between Sewickley and the Warren farms,
in Marshall township. Mr. James S. Mc
Kelvey said yesterday afternoon that every
piece or property that conld at all be re
garded as prospective oil territory, and thai
could be secured at a reasonable figure is
being leased. The owners are keeping
their eyes on all new developments
and as extremely adverse to leasing 'unless
they are paid a hish price. The excitement in
this terntorv was first created by the Swin
derman well, which was brought in- by Jen-
U-.iogs & Both, and which produced COO
barrels per day. bince mat time tne de
velopment of the territory has increased,
and it shows a little oil all along
the line from Marshall township to the
river. The success of the Swinderman well,
prompted all to go to tho lower sand, and
this has proven more profitable. At Thorn
hill postoffice, ten miles back, several rigs
are being put up and operations have com
menced. There are more than 15 rigs in
this neighborhood. Advance wells are
being drilled on the Hamilton, Logan and
A WELL NEAE SEWICKLEr.
There are already a few small wells
around Sewickley, the best one being in
Mitchell's Hollow. There is much expected
of this territory, and the people are looking
lor an early development of the entire tract.
It is not considered a bad venture, even if
there are not any exceedingly large
wells brought in. If prices keep up the
stray pools in all the territories can be
brought to the surface to an advantage, be
cause they can be operated even at a greater
cost; while if prices go down, the operators
could not afford to pay any attention to
The South Penn Company, a branch of
the Standard Oil Company, is taking leases
in this territory wherever they can find a
field that looks like possible oil land. The
Sewickley Dairy Company also owns 2,500
acres that is regarded as important from an
oil standpoint. It is known as the McKean
tract, Nothing has yet been done on it, but
there is a well on the S. Logan farm just
back of the McKean ground, that should it
prove a good one, might prompt the dairy
company to discard the milk business and
embark in the oil trade.

SOME TERT GOOD STORIES WELL TOLD
"How do yon regard Pittsburg as a field
for the promulgation of anarchistic doc
trines?" was the question put to some repre
sentative labor leaders yesterday. President
Weihe, of the A. A. of I. & S. Workers, in
reply, said: i
"However other organizations may regard
anarchism, you may rest assured that the
Amalgamated is dead against it. Our aim
is to settle the differences between capital
and labor by establishing jnst legislation,
and providing a means of adjusting disputes
other than by indulging in rioting and dis
Secretary Martin said: "If yon examine
the files of the Tribune for a few years past
you will find me sufficiently on record
against such methods. There is scarcely
any use in my saying that we don't fox a
moment countenance anvthing of the sort."
John Ehman, of the National Glass Bud
get, said: "I regard it as the worst possible
held. Labor organizations too well recog
nize the fact nowadays that their ends will
be best gained by avoiding anything that
approaches the teaching of Mr. Most and
his followers. As for Fricke, he is regarded
as a crank, and no importance attaches to
anything he says or does."
I. N. Boss, Master Workman of District
Assembly 3, Knights of Labor, said: "They
won't go, and have been tried here before.
I look upon Fricke as a crank and have no
use for such doctrines as he teaches. I be
lieve if it had not been for the founda
tion of the Knights of Labor that anarch
ism would have grown more rapidly. This
organization has prevented many a riot.
and similarly with others is a stumbling
block in the way of such men and their
JohnE. O'Sheasaid: "I consider that the

Postmnster Swan, or Allecheny, Soya He la
Rendr to Retire.
A Dispatch reporter had a little ehaton
general subjects with Postmaster Swan, of
Allegheny, last evening. When the news
paper man mentioned the fact that the ru
mor relating to the consolidation of Pitts
burg and Allegheny was making its periodi
cal round, Mr. Swan said:
"I do not think that such a thing will ever
happen. We Alleghenians think that we
have a nice little city government, and, like
the Southerners dnring the late unpleasant
ness, we want to be let alone. I am satisfied
tbat the citizens of Allegheny would vote,
against consolidation to a man. Of course
Pittsburgers would vote in favor of it, but
we have no idea of assuming a share of the
expense entailed by the government of our
sister city. Allegheny is in a better finan
cial condition than Pittsburg, and the con
solidation would benefit her citizens more
than it wonld us. Besides, what would yon
call the consolidated cities if they ever
shonld be brought together? We are prond
of our name, with its old Indian origin, and
the many legends and stories which cling
around ft, and I am snre that we would not
like to change it for Pittsburg."
"Would not the consolidation make the
various bridges over the river free?"
"I suppose so. But it is not necessary to
consolidate to get free bridges. It is the
fault of our legislators that all our bridges
are not free, and so long as they remain in
different to their duty to their constituents,
every bridge company will demand toll.
There has not been a bridge built lately that
would not have been free to foot passengers
had our representatives at Harrisbnrg done
"Do you expect a letter from Washington
soon?" asked the venturesome scribe.
Mr. Swan laughed and replied: "My

to vacate, ui course, x suppose my prob
able successor, Mr. J. A. Gillelaud, will to

"Of course I have a good word to say for
the comfort, I may say, the luxuriance of
your railway service, but you cannot boast
much on the score of speed. You know, we
beat yon there, and have fewer accidents.
What seems td me the strangest thing
in your country is the appearance
of the working class, and the extravacant
manner of their dress. Why, you know,
they can't be able to save any money if they
spend all their money in clothes. The other
day I saw a man, a workingman, you know,
the other day, who actually owned a horse
and buggy, and they told me he only earned
53 a day. Fancy a workingman owning a
horse and buggy and dressing so extrava
gantly! In England, yon, know, if a work
ingman began to own horses and good
clothes we wonld begin to cut down his
wages, you understand. I don't think your
people ever save any money, at any rate I
don't think they have as large amounts in
savings banks as our working classes."
Mr. Henderson has been a month in the
States, but confesses his inability to under
stand democratic institutions.

Chairman Andrew Deacanta Upon tho
Boyer VolcUo la Not Pleased.
Chairman W. H. Andrews and State
Senator George W.Delamaterwere in Pitts
burg yesterday swinging aro nnd the charmed
oircle of noliicians, the former receiving
many congratulations from his Pittsburg
friends over the result of the campaign just
ended in the election ot Henry K. Boyer to
the State Treasurership.
Messrs, Andrews and Delamater arrived
from Beaver early in the morning where
they had been'for a day the guests of Sena
tor Quay. It was evident from Chairman
Andrews' manner that the silent Senator
had expressed great pleasure at the conduct
of the campaign.
Mr. Andrews said in regard to the battle
If just ended: "It is certainly an Indication to
tneiiepuoiicans oi tne siugaiuj;eaHji
vania makes no mistakes and has no
factional .fighta-Jn-JUale issues I am
keenly disappointed by the vote of Alle
gheny county. We had hoped that the
fiarty organization in Allegheny would be
oyal enough to the party's best interests to
make some exertion in the matter of getting
out the vote, but the reverse seems to
be the case. I noticed that
one politician ascribed the extremely light
vote to the dissatisfaction caused by inter
ference with Federal appointments.
Whether or not this reason wilr be ac
counted sufficient remains to be seen. I
break no confidence in saying that I have a
poor opinion of lukewarm adherence to
regularly nominated candidates. But Mr.
Boyer's vote leaves us nothing to be ashamed
of. I shall go to my home at Titnsville for
a much-needed rest
Senator Delamater was not in a talkative
mood, but said that Mr. Andrews voiced his
sentiments pretty thoroughly. He, too, was
going home for a good rest.
HIGH COFFEE PRICES.
Brazilians Orlnlc tho Beverage Only SIX
Times Per Day.
Senor Carlos Siiviera Martino, the Secre
tary of the Brazilian delegation, In a short
talk just before leaving for the Est, said
yesterday: "Our imports last year
amounted to 9105,000,000 from all parts of
the world. Of that trade England had 45
per cent. The sales of the TJnited States to.
our country amounted to only 57,600,000.
The bulk of that was petroleum, of which
vou sold us 9,000,000 gallons. On the other
hand, your people bought from Brazil
554,000,000 worth of coffee, India
rubber, dye stuffs, tulphnr, fine woods, etc.
Even that comes to the United States
almost entirely in English vessels. I hope
these things will be discussed at the Con
gress, and tbat great good will result from
a mutual endeavor to meet one another half
way. As a sample of the way the English
seenre our good will and trade, I may say
mat a snort time ago .brazil wanted a loan
of 550,000,000. The English offered to let
us have three times that amount.
"Onr coffee crop last summer was only
about one-third of the usual amount. That
was caused by bad weather. Our home
consumption is constantly increasing and is
enormous. Onr people drink coffee abont
six times a day. I think the price will be
high for some years to come."
Samuel Andrewa Thinka Delamater Hoa the
Inalde Track for Governor.
There was some considerable discussion
yesterday on the Gubernatorial election,
based upon the revelations made through
the late political results in Pennsylvania.
Samuel Andrews, Principal of the Howard
School, said yesterday that he was afraid
the 'Eastern influence would prove too
strong for Major Montooth, and from his
experience in the State convention would
jndge that Delamater had the inside track
for the nomination. Of Hastings' candi
dacy he said that he wonld possibly be
more powerful and popular in Western
Pennsylvania than Delamater, but that the
latter would probably be named.
'Squire Herman Handel thought ihere
was no question of tha nomination of Wal
lace as first and Pattison as second choice,
and was perfectly sure tbat either wonld be
elected, with a slieht preference in favor of
Wallace. The same idea seemed to per
meate the general run of Democratic poli
ticians with abont an equal division in
favor of each candidate.
AMERICAN IDEAS STOLEN.
Mr. Reea Sara the English Are Making Hla
' Stjlo of Steamboat.
Mr. Thomas Bees, of the firm of James
Bees & Sons, said yesterday: "Dnring the
visit of the Pan-American delegation here
we received several pleasant calls from, Mr,
Gill, the Secretary of the Ecnadorlan dele
gation. We-have not built any iron steam
boats for that country, bnt tbe Ecuadorians
have learned,of our work through the Gov
ernments of Colombia and Venezuela,
for whom we have done considerable
work. Mr. Gill was collecting
statistics, which he will send home.
He was sangnine that tbe tour and the Con
gress will be very prolific in building np
trade between Korth And South America.
It is hard work to contest successfully with
England for machinery in the Spanish
American States. The English are onr
rivals in the business of building stern
wheel iron steamboats for navigation in
shallow waters, but they have copied our
models. They sent men to Colombia who
made drawings and took measurements of
the vessels which we have bnilt, and they
are now making boats like ours."
Mr. Butler Saj the Coroner Voted
Straight KeDnblican Ticket.
J. A. Butler, a former resident of the
Fourth ward, and lately in charge of the
shops of the Cleveland Beformatory, while
speaking with O. W. Lewis and John M.
Cook yesterday, said regarding the charge
made against Coroner McDowell, that he
had cut Boyer's ticket and worked against
it: "I never heard such a peculiarly incor
rect charge. I was at the polls daring the
greater portion of the dav and saw McDowell
vote the straight Eepublican ticket, while I
heard him get many others to do likewise
who were inclined to trade. There was not,
by any means, so much cutting as has been
alleged, and I believe the principal reason
for the shortness of the vote was the fact that
the citizens did not come oat.

Mo., was a passenger through to Baltimore
last night to attend tbe deliberations of the
Catholic Congress. Mr. Graham referred to
the time when he was on the same mission
in the St. Louis diocese as Archbishop
Byan, and spoke in glowing terms of the
progress, industrially and in a religions
sense, of the Westerners. He said.that any
yonng man who chose to settle down to
steady work had ample opportunities in the
West of rising to affluence, and recom
mended those who were unsettled as to a lo

requested that Mr. Ogden give him the

with a polife bnt decided refusal. It was
learned, however, that the statement will
probably be read at one of the services to
