The Only Eecognized Likeness ot the Great
HIGHLI PEIZED BY CHIEF BIGELOW
The long discussion which took dace in
the joint session of Councils on Friday, oc
casioned by tne free bridge subject having
been unexpectedly introduced, deprived the
city of a valuable gift, "and the Councilmen
of some valuable oratory, relating to the
times of Iobr ago. Councilman Carnahan
has received from W. G. Johnston a print
of the old type, executed in London in A.
D. 1760, of the great commoner, "William
Pitt, from whom the old fort was named.
This was to have been presented, handsome
ly framed, to Councils as a relic and a me
mento of the year in which the French were
compelled to withdraw their forces from
American soil, by the loss ot the Canadian
empire on the fields of Abraham, where two
of the youngest senerals the world has ever
seen, except perhaps General Custer, were
killed iu a hand-to-hand fight of both their
THEY TALK TOO iONG.
Mr. Carnahan said yesterday on the sub
ject: "You see the discussion lasted so need
lessly long on Friday that Mr. Bigelow,
whom I wanted to make the presentation
address, opposed the matter, saying it would
be time enough at the next meeting. I don't
know whether this picture is a print or an
engraving, or a well, don't know whether
they had lithographs in those days, but I
have credible information that it is the only
authoritative likenessof AVilliam Pitt in ex
istence. He was the statesman of his day,
and by reading history you will see he was
called to the position of Premier by the wish
of the people, although compelled to
associate with people, not alone distasteful
and opposed, bnt inimical to him. He took
office with the distinct understanding that
he would attend to the affairs of State, and
would have nothing to do with the financial
policy of the kingdom. Under these condi
tions he took the place, and turning his
mind upon this continent, which as history
proved, was destined tp dim the glare of the
British sunsets, which are said never to
occur, iu the West he picked his man.

"As is usual in such cases the man was

Atiad Case of Destitution Brought to Su
perintendent Dean's Attention.
Superintendent Dean, of the Anti-Cruelty
Society, yesterdav investigated a case of
destitution to which his attention had been
called. It was that of Sirs. JfcKee, on Lib
erty street, near the Union depot, who was
saTdlo be lying sick in a miserable room on
the top floor ol a house, without food or at
tention. Mr. Dearr found the case as bad as report
ed, except that Mrs. McKee had found
friends who would care for her and remove
the family from the quarters they arenowoc
enpving." The family, consisting of Mrs.
McKee and four children, according to Mr.
Dean, are living on the fourth floor of an
old building, in a little room without light
or ventilation, that is more of a box than a
room for human habitation. A short time
ago the woman's husband was sent to the
workhouse for two years for felonious as
sault. Soon after she lell sick, and has suf
fered from want of foot? and attendance. Su
perintendent Dean took no action when he
learned that she was prepared to leave the
place sne is now living in.

The Flam of the Big bandy Bridge Hare
KotBeen Submitted to Them Captain
Moren Defend Himself.
The river operators are again stirred up
on the bridge question. A notice was pub
lished in the Pittsburg papers yesterday
morning that the "West Virginia and Iron
ton Kail road Company would, on Tuesday
next, November 19, apply to Secretary Proc
tor, of the War Department, for permission
to build a bridge across the Ohio river one
mile and a half above the mouth of the Big
Sandy. The owners of steamboats and coal
lines "say that the plans for this proposed
bridge have not been submitted to the river
operators, as has been the custom in the
past. The time remaining before submis
sion to Secretary Proctor is now to short
that it is not expected that the plans will be
submitted to the operators before presenta
tion to the War Department. The result
will be that a number of members
of the Legislative Committee of the National
Board' of Steam Navigation wijl be com
pelled to co to Washington next week, and
visit the War Secretary in company with
the attorneys for the railroad company.
Captain Addison Lysle is a member of the
committee for this city, but at present he is
in Cincinnati. It is probable that he will
go to Washington in the interest of the
Ohio Biver operators.
Another matter which has stirred up the
big operators in this citv is an attack made
editorially in the Ohio Valley Manufacturer
of the past week, on Captain John Moren,
the coal operator, for his breaking of the
false work of the Wheeling bridge about
ten days ago. It is charged that the Moren
boat, with its heavy tow of coal barges, was
purposely run against the piles at the bridge.
It is further said that the river operators
have shown general contempt for the rights
of more important transportation interests,
and that they have poorly repaid the cour
tesv and kindness shown to them by the
railroad ind bridge builders along the Ohio.
Judge Cochran, the President of the bridge
company, is advised to close the eastern
span, which is the channel span, entirely.
Captain James Moren emphatically de
nies that he intentionally ran into the arti
ficial work. While the open channel there
is much larger than the width of the tow,
there is a strong cross-current at that place,
and just below the bridge an island, which
it is necessary to avoid. The point is a dif
ficult one for navigators. Captain Moren
says he was on his tow at the time the strike
was made, and was on one of the front boats.
Had he intended to strike the piles he would
not save been on one of the barges. More
over, a number of his men were on the
barges. When the work was strnck the
timbers fell all around the men, and it was
with difficulty that they escaped. Biver
men say generally that the tow was in great
danger of being wrecked and that no exper
ienced pilot would have run against the
On the general subject of river obstruc
tion. Captain George Lvsle said yesterday:
"Bridges across the Ohio must be bnilt, but
they can be built without placing obstruc
tions in the river. The spans constructed
here are short in comparison with those con
structed elsewhere, and the work can be
done without the erection of lalse structures.
It is so done elsewhere, and the bridge
builders ought to be compelled to do so
here. The river interests are very heavy
and furnish the only guarantee to the peo
ple of reasonable freight rates."

Mrs. Mlchnlk Makes an Information Against
Them Tho Rtsbt to bome Froperty In
volved. An interesting suit was entered yesterday
before Alderman Porter. Herman Hichalk
made an information against Austin Mitch
abar and August Mitchabar for felonious
assault and battery. Mrs. Michalk also
made an information, in which she alleged
the above-named defendants threatened to
take her lite. AH the parties connected
with the case .live at West Bellfonte. Kil
Some months ago Mrs. Michalk sued for
a divorce from her husband. It was granted,
and the coaple have been living alone ever
since, though they are residing in the same
neighborhood. The old man lives with the
Mitchabar bo vs. who ari hi. TmnhAtr, and
young Michalk lives with his aunt at the
old homestead. At the time the divorce
was granted Mrs. Michalk came into pos
session of a small farm out in that country.
The land is very remunerative, and she
states her former husband wanted to
get control of it. His nephews un
dertook to solve the difficulty the 31st
of last October. It is claimed they
went down to the residence of their
aunt, according to the information, and
raised Cain, upsetting things generally and
uemanuiag mat ine laay suouia give up the
property. Herman Michalk interfered,
protesting against the conduct of the other
nephews. This stirred the ire of the Mitch
abars, who set upon him, it is alleged, beat
ing him severely. Not content, it is alleged
further that they shot at him three times,
without inflicting any bodily injury. The
men then lelt. They met the old ladv next
day, and reopened hostilities bv abusing
her, and swore they would kill her to obtain
the property, so she states in the informa

comes to market every week along the
country roads with her produce. Being
frightened at the threats of the young men,
she seeks the protection ot "the county
NEW ICE MACHINES.
Mr. Wninn-rlctit Says tbe Beer Pool Is Ab
surd Be Will Chance Ills Firm Into a
Messrs. Wainwright & Co. are going to
build in their new storage rooms two Delle
vergne ice machines costing 560,000. Their
capacity for making ice will be 140 tons per
day. The company expects to erect another
machine early next year. To keep the stor
age rooms cool, five miles of ziz-zag rustless
iron pipes two inches diameter are to be
fixed to the walk The new storeroom will
give additional accommodation for 40,000
barrels of beer.
Mr. Z. Wainwright stated vesterdav that
they are going to follow the example of
Frauepheim & Vilsack, and change their
nrm into a corporation shortly. He said
that his two sons manage the' business at
present, but they will be admitted as cor
porators. He said further that the pool
scheme so much talked about would never
be adopted in PJttsburg. The idea had been
presented at the Brewers Association, but it
had always been shelved, no firm being en
thusiastic in its support. He said the pool
is something like the syndicate project It
consisted of air principally and would burst
of its own weight.
Mr. Wainwright stated that the talk
among beer clubs to build a brewery so that
they could obtain betr at cost prices was
absnrd. It had been tried before. The St.
Julien brewery was started as an experi
ment but the scheme failed.

APPEAL OP THE CASES PROBABLE.

CHILLOGETS 12 TEAKS TOBIYERSIDE
Upon the opening of Criminal Court yes
terday the verdict of the jury in the
case of Aldermen Doughty, Callen and
Maneese, and Bander, Dougherty and Mc
Call was presented. They found all the
parties guilty, with the exception of
"Kcddy" McCall, who was acquitted.
Aldermen Doughty and Maneese were rec
ommended to the mercy of the court
Not much surprise was manifested by the
legal fraternity yesterday over the verdict.
The drift ot evidence had been so strongly
against the accused Aldermen, and the
nature of the enuence had been so fully spread
before the public as the result ot the prelimin
ary bearings before Magistrate Hyndman. that
the public would hardly have been satisfied
with any other result. ,
Tho prosecutors. Inspector McAleese and
Clarence Burleigh. Esq., are much praised for
their conduct of the case. Counsel for the con
victed men say they will ask for a new trial.
They claim that the Conrt erred in refusing to
quash the Indictment against the Bauder gang,
and made other errors a3 to the admission of
evidence and charge to the jury, which will
operate in the defendants' favor in the event
of the case going to the Supreme Conrt.
This finding creates a vacancy in three offices
of Aldermen which will have to bo tilled
shortly. They were all remanded for sentence.
There is, however, little donbt that the case
will bo appealed, as all the defendants are re
ported to be well-to-do. In regard to the case
of Alderman Callen, his counsel asked for a
polling of the jury. "Guilty," came clear and
prompt from each juror.
Sentence was deterred by Judge White. The
able and severe charge of the latter created
something of a sensation In Aldermanic circles.

young farmer, a neighbor of Edmundson,

prisoner was represented by Messrs. Alex,

Nothing More Than a Civil Suit for the Fine
Is Liable to Follow.
United States District Attorney Lvon is
not saying mncb relative to the letter he re
ceived from Washington yesterday morn
ing, but he is reported as stating that it did
not contain any instructions to proceed in
the Jeannette case.
Assistant District Attorney Alcorn said
that he understood that Mr. Lyon could use
his own discretion in the matter, and as he,
Alcorn, understood, all that would be done
in any event, if anything, would be to enter
civil suit for the penalty prescribed for im
portation, and that would be against the
importers. Mr. Alcorn was averse to going
on record for publication.

County Controller Speer Wants Them
to Do a Full Day's Work.
MORGAN CHARGED WITH PEEJDRT.
It is Claimed He Turned in More Time
Than He is Entitled to.
THE HEARING POSTPOSED A FEW DAIS
Some people are beginning to think Coun
ty Controller Speer old fashioned in his
notions of meum et tuum. Some years ago
Tie gave a county official much 'trouble re
garding his administration of affairs. Lately
he has been poking up election officers for
spending, as alleged, too much time in count-.
ing ballots, and now he has whetted ms
knife to take some county assessors' scalps.
The warfare on the latter began yesterday.
Before Alderman Gripp Mr. Speer
charges W. L. Morgan, Register Assessor
in the Twenty-ninth ward, with extortion
and perjury in returning 24 days' work,
eight or nine days more time than supposed
to be necessary to do the work. Yes
terday at 3 o'clock p. M. was set for
the hearing, but testimony taking was
postponed lor a week; Mr. Gripp states
that there doesn't appear to be much un
usual in the case, and that Mr. Speer'a
object in entering the prosecution was main
ly tor the purpose of haying the court define
It seems that some assessors, like some
jurymen, regard the position more in the
light of a sinecure a reward for political
service than one requiring the expenditure
ot much labor, and the result in either in
stance is destructive to public interest. In
the present case it appears that the defend
ant worked in Jones & Laughlins' iron
works during the day and spent his even
ings in the service o'f the county, and the
Controller is inclined to regard such ser
vice as likely to be very, imperfect. During
the triennial year assessors must wear
out shoe leather in making estimates of
the value of property, but in the off years it
is said some of them do a large amonnt of
guessing, and it isn't a matter of conscience
either, as many a man who wouldn't de
fraud his neighbor of a penny will salivate
the body politic moderately without any
compunction through a semi-unconscious
And a jury of such men will submit to be
bullied into acquiescence into finding an
unjust verdict rather than miss their dinner,
forgetting for the time being that they not
only violated their oaths, but do injustice to
a fellow mortal.
Property assessment values, could they be
understood, would show a crazy-quilt ap
pearance that would astonish even veteran
county officials whose duty it is to supervise
the assessors' work, though it by no means
follows that a majority ot the assessors are

A Fow Sncsestlons to Parents on nn lade
What constitutes a family medicine? TM
is a question in which all parents are deeply
interested. There are medicines that sail
under the name of family medicines that
have very few of the requisites demanded
for household use. In the emergencies that
are likely to arise at any time in the family
they are always found wanting. They may
be good medicines in many respects, and
yet when it comes to the peculiar qualities,
the possession of which entitles a medicine
to the name of family medicine, they are
In the first place, family medicines that
are family medicines in fact as well as in
name, must cover all the diseases that are
likely to break ont at any time in a family.
It may be a simple cold, or it may be con
sumption; it mav be the whooping cough,
or it may be cholera morbus; but what
ever it is, light or severe, comparatively
harmless or extremely dangerous, a family
medicine must be able to check and to cure
it. Then it must act promptly and effect
ively. The disease may he as violent as it
is sudden, and unless a medicine acts
promptly in -nine cases out of ten it is ute
less. In any event it cannot be relied upon,
and a family medicine must, above all
things, be reliable. Then it must be good
as well as safe ior old and young to take,
and pleasant, also, for otherwise the children
will not take it. The children, it must be
borne in mind, are a very important part
of the family, and their "tastes as well as
needs must be consulted. Then further,
a family medicine must he reason
able in price. The rich are the lew, tbe poor
are the many. A family medicine that finds
its way into rich families only is not truly
entitled to the name. But a medicine that
is high in price cannot be kept in the house
by poor people. They cannot afford to buy
it. Therefore the price must be adjustedto
meet their financial circumstances. Again,
a family medicine ought to be a preventive
as well as a cure. Part of its usefulness
should be to keep disease away. The mote
successfully it can do this 'the more useful
it is. But, above all, it must be such that
it can be made use of by the members of the
family without calling in the aid of a phy
sician. This is unquestionably one of the
principal attributes of a true family medi
cine, for without the ability to cure them
selves by means of it the name Family
Medicine would practically be meaning
less. Such are the qualities that constitute fam
ily medicines that truly and justly deserve
the name. In how manv medicines will
these qualities be found? In very few, in
deed; and first and foremost among these
few, by the common consent of all who have
given them a trial, are the three great fam
ily remedies Pe-rrf-na, Man-a-lin and La-cu-pi-a.
Every essential quality and im
portant characteristic given above is pos
sessed by these remedies in a marked degree
To begin with, they cover all the diseases
likely to break out at any time in any fam
ily. If it is consumption, or pneumonia, or
pleurisy, or bronchitis, or asthma, or croup,
or neuralgia, or quinsy, or disease of the
heart or stomach, or colic, or cholera mor
bus, or cholera infantum, or diarrhoea, or
dysentery, or disease of the kidneys,
or scarlet fever, or whooping cough, or
diphtheria, or typhoid fever, or erysip
las, or yellow lever, or rheumatism, or
female diseases, or acute diseases oi the
skin, Pe-ru-na will cure them all, and
cure them in a xnarvelously short time. If
it is constipation, or biliousness or piles, or
any kind of trouble with the liver, Man-a-lin
will cure it promptly and effectively. If
it is catarrh, or running of the ears, or
chronic rheumatism, or scrofula, or chronic
ulcers, or constitutional skin diseases, or any
blood disease, however violent, La-cu-pi-a
will cure it. and do so in. a wav that will
demonstrate its power in a most conclusive
manner. In the second place, Pe-ru-na,
Man-a-lin and La-cu-pi-a act promptly and
effectively. In the third place, they are
safe and pleasant to take, and good for old
and young alike. In the fourth place, they
are reasonable in price, being but $1 a bottle
six for $5, so that the poorest family can
afford to keep them on hand. In the fifth
place, they prevent diseases as well as cure
them. Pe-ru-na is undoubtedly one of
the very best tonics ever made, while a
little Man-a-lin taken now and then effec
tually prevents constipation, and thus keeps
the system regular. In the sixth place, aud
lastly, and most important of all, they are
not only medicines for family use, but are to
be used by the members of the family in
curing themselves, thus saving time, trouble
and doctor's bills. By every attribute and
mark, therefore, of a true family medicine,
these three are such. As such thev are in
thousands ofhomes to-day, in every State of
the Union, and as such thousands of fami
lies that have tried them and found them as
advertised would not for a single day be
without them. As such, finally, they are
recommended for trial to those who have
never tried them, with the assurance that
they will be found to be, in every respect
and in each particular, exactly what they
are denominated the three great family

FOR the: house:,
If there's a house in this city keeping a
larger, handsomer, finer and cheaper stock of
Furniture than Keech's, we would like to
hear of it As a matter of fact, however, we
have more goods to show on a single one of
the several floors devoted by us to our Fur
niture trade than can be seen in the entire
store of the average dealer who claims to
come in competition with us; As for prices
competition exists for us in name only.
Although the present is supposed to be
a rather dull season in the Carpet line, our
trade continues with unabated vfgor, and our
sales are far ahead of the corresponding .
period of last year. The reason is plain:
Our inducements are so tempting that pro
spective purchasers are induced to make their
selections right now. It certainly pays to buy
at present prices. Just look at our grand as
sortment of Body and Tapestry Brussels,
Moquettes, Velvets, eta, and then, if you in
quire for the prices, your astonishment will
know no bounds. We repeat, now's the time
Stoves and Ranges. Do you need anything
in this line? If so, charge your memory with
the fact that we can fill your want far better
than any other house in this city. How
about Kitchen Utensils in general? Do you.
require something? Remember, we carry a
complete stock and our prices are in keeping
with those prevailing in every other branch
of our business.
