THE PITTSBURG-"' ' SPATOH, SXTUKTfi3r, - NOVEMBEIlbS, n8'89.
It is Thanksgiving Day in a Western farm
house. This statement also applies to several other
places in these broad United States.
The farmer sits at the bead of the table and
a tear stands in his eye as he glances at his
bright, happy and hungry family.
The tear may be one of joy for the blessings
showered upon him; it may be of grief that his
firstborn is far away, or it may be born of the
fear that there is not enough turkey to go
The farmer says nothing, but, with the calm
ness bom of experience, carves the deceased
pride of the barnyard.
Not much is said tor a few minutes.
Everyone is too busy.
Finally, little Johnny, with his month full of
mince pie, manages to articulate: "Wonder
where our 'Dolph is to-day."
Ah, poor dear boy; I wish he were here to
day," sighs tbo silvery-haired matron at the
o ot of the table.
'Well, lie might have been here if he'd be
haved himself." says the old fanner; "but a
boy who writes spring madrigals when he ought
to he plowing; composes a sonnet to the hired
girl when be ought to be harvesting, and spins
out verses on the beautiful snow when he
ought toibe splitting fence rails, is no sort of
use around a farm."
Kvery one at the table sighs and feels that
Adolphus is indeed lost to bis family.
He is a .prodigal son for whom there can be
no fatted calf or stuffed turkey.
THE MODIGAIS lHAJTHSGITEfO.
"Where is poor Adolphus?
Perhaps our sympathy is misplaced. When
Adolphus left home and arrived in the Gas
City he found that iron was worth more per
pound than poetry.
Adolphus was sicked by a mule once, and
wag not slow to take a hint.
He was also a hustler.
To-day Adolphus is dressed to the limit, wears
a cold watch, three-inch collar, patent leather
shoes and a big-beaded cane.
He is visiting his best girl at her home in
Allegheny. They are alone.
We will not Intrude, but her mother does.
"Why don't you two come ont and sit with
"Oh, mamma,", responds the girl, "you would
not have us leave our guests, would you?"
"Why, Mrs. President Harrison, Hev. T,

are all these people?"
"Here, mamma," and the young lady prod
uces a copy of The Sunday Dispatch.
The old lady smiles and goes away.
Is Adolphus unhappy, and does he think re
gretfully of the farm?
He feels very comfortable, and joins with
hundreds of thousands of other people in being
thankful for The Dispatch.

thing to be thankful for on Thursday.

PITTSBURG, SATURDAY. NOV. 23. 188a
MR. SHOEKBEBGEE'S BEHEVOLEKCE.
Again are the annals of Pittsburg en
riched with the record of the magnificent
charity of one of her citizens. The name of
the late John H. Shoenberger must be in
scribed in letters of gold upon the swelling
roll of Pittsburg's benefactors. He is already
known as a generous friend of the city
where his wealth was amassed, and where,
until of iate years, he lived, but he pre
ferred to reserve till he was beyond the
reach or care of earthly praise his greatest
gifts to this community.
As will be seen in another column of this
issne, the bequests to pnblic objects con
tained in Mr. Shoenberger's will are made
upon a grand plan. Naturally, Mr. Shoen
berger has remembered to some purpose the
church, to which he was always loyal. But
his grandest dower is designed for an insti
tution in which every Pittsburger can feel
an interest, a hospital. Seldom has a hospital
started into existence wilh $1,000,000 for
backing. There is great need for a new haven
for the victims of disease and ac
cident in Pittsburg. The existing
hospitals are doing splendid work, but all
of them are overtaxed. Crowded wards,
overworked doctors and.nnrses are features
that have called the public's attention to
the insufficiency of Pittsburg's hospitals.
To supply this need, and more than supply
it, comes Mr. Shoenberger's gift.
The frequent recurrence of benevolent
acts, such as Mr. Shoenberger's witness
Mrs. Schenley's gift of a park, the late Mr.
Thaw's largesses and Mr. Carnegie's con
tinual philanthrophy makes Pittsburg
proud "of her wealthiest citizens and grate
ful to them.
EXCEPTIONS PBOTOKJ A BULB.
Nobody needed to be assured that the
suspension of the Lawrence Bank did not
result from, or indicate, the general condi
tion of the banking business in this com
munity. Nor, with the thousand evidences
on all sides of one of the briskest and most
profitable business periods this part of the
country has ever known, does it require an
argument to demonstrate that the difficulties
of a single iron firm proceed from special
circumstances, not from the general state of
While greatly to be regretted upon every
account, the Lawrence Bank affair after all
but illustrates by contrast the solvency and
prosperity which is the common condition
of our banks and industries. What the par
ticular causes were which led the Lawrence
Bank into its complications will be more
folly shown as the examination of its ac
counts proceeds. The evidences up to the
present do not point to anything worse than
fatal errors of judgment, which are frankly
enough avowed. If the assurances of the
President and of counsel for the bank in
short, of those who onght to know its condi
tionare correct, the assets should go a good
way toward making the depositors whole.
Meanwhile, even while allowing for this
optimistic view, the collapse contains a fresh
warning against loose methods in banking.
It emphasizes very particularly the position
that a bank should know when to stand a
loss rather than to incur the risk of greater
losses by endeavoring to secure doubtful
loans by additional advances.
However the accounts of the suspended
concern may adjust themselves, there is not
the slightest reason to look npon it as pro
ducing any effect outside of the list of its
own stockholders, depositors and debtors.
SCATTERING CENSUS W0BK.
"We regret to learn that the superintend
ent of the eleventh census is showing a dis
position to fall into the usual vice of his
office in the shape of an attempt to make
the census cover every possible detail of
life in the United States. The experience
with the tenth census was enough to con
vince everyone that the scope of the census
work should be restricted rather than en
larged. But the temptation to spread out
all over the country and throughout the
next decade appears to be too much -for Mr.
Porter, as will be seen from the following
list of subjects that he hopes to tackle, if
he can get Congress to authorize it:
He intends not only to count the people, but
to ascertain, what language is spoken by every
person; how many children each married
woman has borne; how many mnlattoes, quad
roons and octoroons are included in oar col
ored population; the influence of race upon
fecundity and mortality; the relation of occu
pations to death rates, and to particular causes
of deaths; the financial condition of every
county, city, town, and incorporated village in
the United States at the end of every year
since 1SS0, with full analysis of receipts, ex
penses and assets; the business of railroad, tel
egraph, telephone and express companies; with
a variety of "new features in relation to irri
gation, dairy, and poultry products, ranch
cattle and animals other than those on farms."
There is, no doubt, a large amount of in
teresting information to be ascertained in
theselines of research. But the experience
of the last census in dealing with much less
detailed and scattering statistics, is enough
to convince any reasonable mind of the im
practicability of the scheme. What is
needed in the census is a prompt completion
of the returns. Let us have the leading
facts properly summarized and got together
within the first two or three years
of the decade. Statistical information
and reference to anything and everything,
and dragging along so far after the census
year as to lose value when they are pub
lished, are labor and money thrown away.
Let Mr. Porter confine himself to the
work already mapped out for him by Con
gress. If he does that thoroughly and
promptly he will beat the record of his pre
decessors. OHIO'S LATE8T FLUBBY.
Ohio is managing to monopolize all the
political sensations going. She began by
surprising everybody except those dread
fully sly fellows whose hindsight masquer
ades as foresight fulfilled by electing a
Democratic Governor. Since then Allen O.
Myers has been making the millionaire can
didates for Mr. Payne's Senatorial shoes wish
he were provided with a Consulate in the
Cannibal Islands, and now a new toreador
comes into the ring waving a blood-red flag
at the anti-Cleveland bull.
This third disturber of Ohio's peace is
the usually harmless brother-in-law of ex
President Cleveland, Mr. W. E. Bacon.
Exactly what Mr. Bacon meant by spend
ing several hours yesterday with Governor
elect Campbell does not seem to be known
beyond a peradventnre. But they are good
at guessing out in Ohio, and it is surmised
that Mr. Bacon's mission ranged from the
selection of a Senatorial candidate whose
record should be an indorsement of Mr.
Cleveland's tariff reform ideas, to the nego
tiation of a deal by which Mr. Cleveland's
friends in the New York delegation might
be turned over to Mr. Campbell in the
Presidental convention of 1892.
We are hardly concerned enough in Mr.
Bacon's movements to speculate about what
he said or did not say to Governor-elect
Campbell. But we do feel at liberty to say
that if Mr. Cleveland sent Mr. Bacon to
Governor Campbell with a view to influ
encing him in favor of Frank Hurd, the
free-trader, for the Senate, our estimate of
Mr. Cleveland's political sagacity will be
lowered by several degrees.
A HEW DEFABTTJBE.
An Allegheny county jury yesferday
ignored the argument of drunkenness as a
plea for lessening the degree in a murder
case. The point was made that this excep
tion was perhaps because of the color of the
defendant Such, however, is hardly to be
taken as the case. The danger o making it
a rnle to bring in verdicts of the second de
gree wherever drunkenness might be shown,
probably had more weight with the-jury.
But even in this instance the Court an
nounced that there were extenuating circum
stances, so Smith has a chance for Executive
clemency. The only difference between the
result of this and other such cases previous
ly passed upon, is that the prisoner in the
present instance will not get off with merely
a twelve years' sentence, but may have to
stay immured for life.
ENGLISH PB0TECTI0H FOB US.
The English syndicate has bobbed up
again in this country and this time in con
pection with a truly patriotic scheme to pro
hibit the importation of foreign mineral
waters by procuring the imposition thereon
of a duty of eighty per cent. It is a sweet
and precious thing to see blarsted Britons
actually striving to protect American pro
ducts. No more millennial vision has been
vouchsafed to us since America grew strong
enough to walk alone. Let us look at the
dazzling pbantasma a little closer.
In the first place it is said that at the re
cent Mineral Water Convention held in Chi
cago, the sum of $50,000 was subscribed to
be used, to influence Congress in the direc
tion of placing a prohibitory duty on ship
ments from European springs, and the figure
of such duty is placed at 80 per cent. With
such a tariff it'is thought either that the for
eign importations will cease entirely or that
the price will be advanced to snch a figure as
will justify bnt few hotel or restaurant
keepers in the country in carrying foreign
importations .in stock except at an exorbi
From London the news comes simultan
eously by cable that an English syndicate
has been formed to bny out all the important
mineral water springs in America. The
capital of this syndicate is said to be twenty
five millions of dollars, and its directorate
according to the same authority includes at
least three raembersof Lord Salisbury's
Ministry. The inference has been drawn that
in view of the saleof ; the. American 'springs,
to this syndicate the' movement in'Vavor
of a prohibitory duty'on foreign waters will
be abandoned. There is, however, just as
much reason to believe that the British syn
dicate, if it be a real thing, will labor just
as heartily with soul and pocketbook to kill
competition by legislation in its best mar
ket. So that there. is a chance of seeing
English capitalists arrayed here as the
protectors of American products. A mar
A CHANCE FOB THE LOST. '
- There has been some desultory talk before
about establishing in this city a refuge and
reformatory home for unfortunate women, but
yesterday the movement took tangible
snap e owing to the efforts of some noble women
and the assistance of several of our city
clergy. It now seems tolerably certain that
such a home will be set up, and that the un
fortunate women whose degradation puts
them to-day further beyond the help of
Christian civilization than the very savage as
yet undiscovered in Central Africa, will at
last be given a chance and encouragement
to come oat of the darkness.
It is not reasonable to believe that this
conrageous effort to face and fight a hideous
enormity in our boasted system of civiliza
tion will be frowned down or allowed to
fail from want of proper support There
ought to be enough hearts and purses in
Pittsburg to respond to the appeal which
will shortly be made in behalf of this insti
tution to establish it upon a firm basis. No
such place is to be found here to-day, bnt in
other large cities in this country, and uni
versally in the Old World, such homes for
the most unfortunate of women have done
and are still doing incalculable good, and
that which could be done in no other way.
The interesting cablegram which an

about persons being "intoxicated by the exu
berance of their own verbosity." But wo

The jadded appetites of Chicagoans re
ceived a fillip yesterday in the shape of a new
blood-curdling mystery. A whole family has

almost literally covered with blood. But after
the confession made by two ornamental Chicago
reporters that they had built up a sensation, in
connection with the Carlson cottage in the
Cronin case, with cotton-batting and bollock's
blood, even Chicagoans will be slow to credit

The Bank Failure of To-DaT Recall Inci

McCaull' Affairs An Idyl of the

Everybody was talking of bank failures
yesterday; retailing experiences and bits of gos
sip about the Penn Bank smash and other dark
One story of that awful Penn Bank collapse
that was told to me has never been in print
although a good many people know it Among
the depositors in the bank was a young railroad
clerk. He had accumulated SLG00, and every
cent of it was in the Penn Bank
when it suspended payment for the first time.
When that institution reopened its doors and
reports were given out by the friends of the
bank that largo sums had been lent to it to tide
over the rough weather, the young man whose
savings were at stake was urged by his com
panions in the office to draw bis money ont
But he refused to very manfully; he was satis
fled to let his money rest, he said, now that the
bank bad all the money it needed, and the sup
port of so many wealthy men.
We know how misplaced that confidence was
now, but It is surprising at this day to know
how many smart men of business were deluded
into a belief of the Penn Bank's solvency after
its first suspension. '
A VERY shrewd business man had some $70,
000 in the Penn Bank when it went under the
first time. A brother of his had S10.000 or $12,
000 also on deposit in the same place. When
the doors were thrown open the depositor of
the smaller sum was among the first to get it
from the tottering bank's clutches. His elder
brother made Bport of him, accusing nlm of
timidity unworthy a business man for 24 hours
or more. The $70,000 were allowed to remain
intact ostensibly In the Penn Bank. The
next day the situation was reversed, but the
lucky younger brother had not the heart to
plague his hard hit senior.

Washington, D. C, November 22. a ro
mantic story of youthful love and parental op
position culminated in this city this morning
in a quiet marriage ceremony at the residence
ot Rev. Dr. Addison, pastor of Trinity Church.
The first arrival at the Metropolitan Hotel
was a pretty brunette young ladv, who regis
tered as "Mrs, E. B. Wilcox, Greenup, HI." A
young man who came In soon after on the
Southern train, wrote himself down as "E. B.
Wilcox, North Carolina." Without unneces

reception room, where he found "Mrs. Wilcox"
awaiting him. it afterward transpired that the
young couple were not husband and wife, but
lovers and elopers. Mr. Wilcox balls from
Rock Mount, N. C. He is a nephew of Gover

James and fell in love with her. Her father
refused his consent to a marriage, and the
young couple got united by a notary. After

dear to the hearts of college men, and could
only be appreciated by those who have re
membrances of fraternity life in years gone
by. There were gathered together in the par
lors men who, since leaving college, have ac
quired fame in the legal fraternity, in the med
ical profession, in the pulpit, and in business
circles. All present bad come there to enjoy
themselves, and their highest expectations

Walker and Horace J. Miller, had spared no
pains to make the affair a success, and the
dining hall presented quite an attract
ive nictnre, with the daintily-arranged tables,
bright lights, handsome silver service and
costly draperies. The pronrletors of the
Seventh Avenue are noted for the excellent
banquets they prepare, but upon this occasion
they seemed to have ontdone any former ef
forts in this direction.

hour the jovial company disbanded, to meet at
the call of the President
Fraternal telegrams were read during the
evening from the Springfield, Cincinnati and
Chicago Alumni Associations, and letters of
regret from many prominent men who are
members ;of the fraternity, but who were not
able to be present
OLD FASHIONED MUSIC.
The Second Entertainment of the Y. M. C. A.
Coarse a Success.
Rather refreshing was the concert given by
the Mundell Sisters at Old City Hall, last
evening. Those who enjoy old-fashioned,
familiar melodies were in the majority in the
audience, and the programme "and rendition of
the various features were so pleasing that
encores on every number were responded to
not only once, but sometimes twice or thrice.
The admirable good nature with which the
ladies responded to encores made them great
favorites, and their singing was extremely
pleasing. Their voices were sweet and clear
and they sang naturally and apparently with

EXPLOSION IN A CflUECH
Which Fortunately Occurred Oat of Ser
New York, November 22. The Pres
byterian Church at No. 228 West Thirty
fifth street was visited by an explo
sion and fire yesterday afternoon, for
tunately before the hour for the evening ser
vice. While the pastor was in his study,
in the rear of the church, at 3:30
o'clock, the whole structure was shaken.
The pastor rushed out and found the church
full of smoke and flames. On the roof, near
the front three men were at work makingsome
repairs, and they were hurled to the ground.
By that time the woodwork about tbe entrance
and in the vestibule was ablaze, but the fire de
partment promptly stopped the flames. The
explosion was found to nave been caused by
escaping gas from a meter located in the base
ment under tbe vestibule. A heatingpipe from
the furnace passed over the gas meter, and it
is supposed to have led to.the explosion.

GOSSIP FROM GOTHAM
Two Old Itallana Imposed On.
NEW Yobs, November 22, Two elderly
Italians to-day earned a little bundle, knotted
up in a handerchlef, into tbe bank of P. Capon
lgrl, in-Mulberry street and laid it on tbe glass
shelf before the receiving teller's window.
Slowly and carefully the knots were untied.
The handkerchief was open, and exposed to
view was a bundle of worthless paper. The
eyes of the two Italians fairly bulged from their
heads. Both fell upon their knees, and with
innumerable "madre de Dios" and Santa
Marias.' implored the return of their money.
It was some time before they could be quieted
bnt finally they managed to tell the story of
bow they bad been robbed. They were work
lngmen, who had saved 250 between them
during their residence in America. This morn
ing they started for the(bank to get their
money changed Jnto Italian currency,
preparatory to sailing for tbo
old country to-morrow. A stranger Joined them
in tbe street and learned all about their plans.
He persuaded them to accompany him into a
small office in a back alleyway, where be intro
duced his pal as a money changer. His pal
wrapped $300 up in a handkerchief and asked
the men bow much money they bad. One
I pulled out S100 and the other $150, and this
money was nanuea 10 ine new-iouna menu,
he m turn giving them the handkerchief sup
posed to contain $300. In some way, however,
paper bad been substituted for the money, but
of this fact-the Italians were of course ignorant,
and they did not discover the fraud until they
arrived at Mr. Caponlgri's bank. The police
are still looking for the swindlers. The game
in question is frequently, played by ah organ
ized gang in "Little Italy," though generally
for small stakes. Complaints are infrequent
however, as the gang usually frightens its vic
tims into silence.
A Bod in Fickle for Mr. Rants.
The war vets of Kings County have a rod in

Phillips was for several years almoner of the
Brooklyn Bureau of Employment and Belief
Society, and acquired a great reputation for
philanthropy among the widows and children
ot his former comrades. Becretary Noble was
petitioned recently to retain Major Phillips. A.
movement is on foot among Brooklyn vets to
file a bitter protest shortly, against the Secre
tary's action in the matter. Phillips was an

LINCOLN AS A WATCHMAN.
For Half as Hoar a President Oace Acted
tSPZCIAT. TXZXQBAU TO THZ SUP ATCH.1
WASHHtoxoir, November 22. James Etter,
an old soldier who for over 20 years has been
one of tbe day watchmen in the Winder build
ing, which is occupied by the bureau of the
Second Auditor of the Treasury, relates with
pride an interesting experience he had tn 1863.
As he was alone In the building one sultry July
Sunday morning, a tall, clerical-looking man en
tered fromSeventeentb street and politely asked
him whether Surgeon Barnes was in his office.
He replied that Barnes bad not been there
since the preceding day. The stranger thanked
him and retired, but returned half an hour
later with the same inquiry. Again receiving
a reply in the negative, he said: "I am Mr.
Lincoln, the President You, allow me to take
your place as watchman, while you go to Sur
geon Barnes' house and tell him I want to see
him. Let me have your badge, and I will sit
right here in your chair and carefully attend
to your duties till you come back."
The veteran, in relating the story, says
for a moment he was speechless from astonish
ment but auicklv recovering himself, tin
pinned bis badge on the coat of the President
of the United States and hurried off after Dr.
Barnes, whom he brought back with him,
"Welt,'' said the President, as be returned the
badge to its rightful possessor, "1 have proven
true to my trust as your substitute; and nothing
has gone wrong while you were away." The
old watchman feels proud to think that he is
the only policeman who was ever relieved by
the President Surgeon Barnes lived on Lafay
ette square, and it took Etter half an hour to
go there and back; so for that space of time
Abraham Lincoln acted as a watchman at the
