A Thanksgiving Symposium
Concisely Presented.
'Some Politicians in Step "With the
The fact that next Thursday -will be
.Thanksgiving Day, if it does not rain, as
any intermediate day would be under simi
lar circumstances, was brought to the at
tention of the general public yesterday by
The Dispatch reporters. As the Presi
dent has decided in faror of Thursday, and
the Governors or the various States, irre
spective of age, sex or previous condition of
politics, annually agree with the National
Executive, probably for the first time in
some of their lives, the date was put before
the citizens generally with the request that
any data which they possessed lor basing
thankfulness upon might be produced. "I'm
thankful I'm livm was almostthe universal
response with a number of variations given
W. A. Magee X am thankful to be a
resident of a city, of which the residents are
apparently awakening to a public spirited
feeling, which prompts them to study the
general good and help it in proportion to
their means. J. H. Shoenberger and Mrs.
Scheoley certainly furnish examples to lol
low which would be an honor to both the
individual and the city.
"William Elinn I suppose I ought to be
thankful that 1 have good health, and that
1 have not been named as a candidate for
the Mayoralty. The surface indications of
my own cand"idacy are also cause for grati
tude to my friends
Philip Hoerr I believe that I'm thank
ful I'm alive. You know that from the
nature ot things I can't do very much kick
ing, anyhow; a fellow can't use one leg
unless he has another to stand on. I have
no foundation for kicking, and consequently
I am grateful.
A. C. Robertson Thankful 1 1 should say
I am. The free bridge question is again be
fore the public, and I want to have permis
sion to walk from the First ward to the
Thirty-filth without being compelled to pay
for the privilege of exercising my legs.
That will make everybody thankful when
the chance is afforded.
George Browne, Superintendent of the
Wafer Bureau I don't know yet, but I am
pretty sure I will be thankful if the basin
shows up fnll on Monday next, although I
don't want anybody to consider that this is
a chance for any other portion of the ad
juncts of the waterworks to get full.
S. A, DuBPan, Councilman of the Thir
teenth ward That depends. I am some
what thankful under some circumstances. X
am permitted to exist as one of them, but
whatever the general public has any cause
for gratitude in that fact I don't know. I
am thankful that the Thirteenth ward is
securing some improvements, and I shall
be still more thankful when the Central
Traction road commences to run.
Assistant Brhlding Inspector Captain I.
A. A. Brown was thanklul that no disasters
from falling buildings or fire escape casual
ities had occurred since Jnly 1.
Henry P. Ford was thankful for good
health, and his home of thankfulness will
be furnished with au extension of the latest
style, mansard roof, hot and cold water
and accompaniments when he is the re-cipient-of
the postmastership.
E. M. Bigelow I am exceedinglv grate
ful that the Lord has given me good heath,
and for the lastver bled me to
make the paths pleasant. X
feel also a vict. lness on the
part of our citizens to -nt donors ot
such generous gifts to the-...,.
E. S. Morrow Yes, I have reason to be
thankfal'for my health, and for the numer
ous good things received not deserved, but
given me. I am thanklul for the prosperity
of the city, and that the hearts of some
have been opened to give of their plenty for
the benefit of the citizens.
W. XL Ford, Delinquent Tax Collector
lam exceedingly thaueful that I had no
money deposited iu the Lawrence Bank.
There was a man who may not be so thank
ful, however, who paid over $300 into. my
office about noon on Thursday for taxes.
The check was on the Lawrence Bank, and
returned protested when I sent it to the de
.pository. Major J. F. Denniston Thankfull I
should say X am. "Why shouldn't I be,
with one toot in the grave, and the other
just as lively as a three-year-old, with lots
of fun going on, and a great big dog about
two months old keeping me awake nights
by running up and down stairs. Thanklul,
you bet.
Frank Darriogton, of the Treasurer's
office I dunno about the fact whether I
ought to be thankful or not I suppose I
might be. My family ain't any bigger and
my grub isn't any smaller than it was last
year, so thanks will go.
Coroner McDowell I am certainly very
grateful to my friends and the "boys" gener
ally for the manner in which they stood my
friends during the last election. " "With the
obvious objection to getting in "the soup,"
which every man who runs for office has, I
feel the services rendered me the more
keenly as the opposition appeared to be so
strong. Yes, I am very grateful to my
Chief Brown, of the Department of Pub
lic Safety, was not in the city yesterday,
and is, without any doubt, thankful that he
escaped the interviewer, so his cause for
gratitude is on record anyway.
George McCutcheon, the Meat and Milk
Inspector, said in the first place that he was
thankful he could swim, in view of the con
dition of the East End streets, and if he had
to travel around with a cork belt buckled
around him and a life preserver on each arm
he was satisfied that tbe number of lump
jawed cattle supplied for food was much
smaller than it was a year ago. He thought
also that, notwithstanding the heavy fall of
rain recently, the milk would be found
tretr rrom water thau it was when he opened
war on the adulteration of milk. This, he
said, he was thankful for and was sure he
would be backed in the thankfulness of
every mother in the country and every baby
in the city.
Roger O'Mara, Assistant Superintendent
of Police, said he would be thankful il he
found his children well on Thanksgiving
Day, as, according to medical opinions, that
would be the turning point of their afflic
tion. Mr. O'Mara's family has been suffer
ing from diphtheria for some weeks.
Captain Beed, of the Central police sta
tion : "I am thankful that I have got so far
through this wicked world, and am still
preserved to do my duty. I am thankful
that the city is is Euch good shape that a
check is kept upon habitual criminals such
as places them-in letter restriction. I may
live many-years yet to conduct affairs, and I
am thankful in advance for that."
Inspector McAleese thought it would be
better to be thankful for haVyjg the First
ward cleaned out without the Police Bureau
being put to unnecessary expense and
trouble, but seemed to shake a grain or
two of salt over the purification process.
H. P. Ford I shall be thankful if I get
the Pittsburg postmastership.
James S. McKean Senator Quay is
doubtless thankful that he landed that Phil
adelphia Surveyor of the Portship. Mr.
"Walters, of Chester, does not appear to have
made a permanent hit by requesting that
the Pennsylvania delegation be polled at
the Chicago Convention.
H. L Courier I shall be thankfoljf my
strained leg will get well, and give me a
chance to get about in my Mayoralty can
vass. John B. Larkin I am thankfnl that my
entire term will be completed, as it is a
graceful thing for the administration to show
consideration for a public servant who has
at least tried to do his whole and complete
duty while in office.
Superintendent of Mails Stephen Collins
X haven't much to be, thankful for. You
know the department decreased my sal
ary, and X have no reason to be thankful,
unless it is because X was not relieved en
tirely. Eddie Morris You can say that I am
thankfnl because I know the Brotherhood
will be a success; because my ann is iu ele
gant shape, and I am going to pitch good
bftl next vear.
J. F. DifTenbacher, publisher of the City
Directory I have commenced already to
give thanks that I am just over a severe and
protracted attack of neuralgia. I believe
our country has more to give thanks for
this year than any previous one. It has
been exceedingly prosperous. I sold more
directories than ever before, anyhow.
Ex-Building Inspector M. G. Frank
Just say that I am thankful X am out of
politics, and that X wish X had always
stayed out
A. J. Kaercher, the druggist I am

Chief of Police Kirschler I haven't
much to be thankfnl lor, except that I
didn't have any money in tbe Lawrence
Alderman C. E. Succop I am not so
selfish as to only give thanks for myself. I

all things, stoves in the Birmingham street

and Prosperous Work.
A number of men were seen yesterday

to be thankful Tor. The Black Diamond
Steel "Works was visited as a likely place
to get a general idea about what the work
ingmen thought of Thanksgiving Day. Mr.
Tom Carrier, Superintendent of the open
hearth department, said:
"The most conspicnous thing that X have
to be thankful for is that every applicant
for employment in my department for the
past two months has obtained work. Be
cause this ho 8 been the case it makes me ex
tremely crateful, and I mean to appropri
ately celebrate it on the day appointed.
Another thing for which I will render
thanks, is that in the slaughter of convivial
resorts 93. were left where a man can repair
his lost energies after a hard day's work by
a 'deep draught of good Rhine wine.'"
Mr. David Murphy, a steel melter, said
that he offered up thanks because he had
had ten months' straight work in the past
year. He said that he voiced the senti
ments of tbe whole works by the word
happy. One other circumstance made him
glad, and that was the company paid him
ample salary.

has been accounted for.

that his father's name was John Freed,

wife " and five children living

but who is otherwise unknown, had been
drinking heavily, and had pat out for Alle

return in the evening. That was "the last
seen of Freed, and his family are positive
that he was one of the men.
Captain "Woods stated that he is not$ pos
itive that there were only two men in the
boat The search for the bodies of the
drowned men was continued yesterday, but
to no avail.
In the "West End yesterday a large num
ber of persons were named as having been
the persons drowned, but all of those named
showed up, and satisfied everyone that they
were still with the living.
A Slight Bin ze nt 811 Liberty Streot Caused
A fire in the manufacturing department of
J. Klees' clothing house, 811 Liberty street,
at 10:45 last night, caused an alarm from
box 23. The fire was confined to a lot of
newly made Kentucky jean pants, and its
origin is not ktewn, but is supposed to have

ered by $100.
Great excitement was caused downtown

$430 from the bank at Brockwayville on
false pretenses.
The Constable, Mr. Shraeberger, arrived
last night Ind will take his prisoner back
to-morrow. The information is made by C.
H. Kuapp. The case may be a enrious'one
as Truby has had a deposit in the bank for
some time, and his defense will be that he
has simply overdrawn his account.

Master Workman Ross Returns From
Delegate to District Duty
Two Hundred and Fifty of Long fc Co.'s Men
"Waiting for Three Weeks' Pay.
Mr. T. N. Boss, Master "Workman of Dis
trict 3, Knights of Labor, returned from
Atlanta last evening. Speaking of the
proceedings of the convention, Mr. Boss
said: "It was the best conducted General
Assembly ever held; everything was in per
fect harmony. It was a strictly Knights of
Labor conference, and it was remarked by
old time delegates that they had never been
present at a more thoroughly business-like
and orderly conducted Assmbly. A new
feature introduced was that the proceedings
of the previous day were lurnished to each
delegate next morning."
"What is the condition of the order?"
"Flourishing, and improving day by day.
The.membership was increasing from April
to July, and the reports sent in to the Gen
eral office since then show a continual in
crease. A good many of the locals that had
lapsed were making diligent inquiry into
the best means of getting back into the order
"What about the Callaghan conspiracy
''I was talking with Mr. Powderly about
it on Thursday, and he said that he did not
know what it was about, but would inquire
about it when he got back. I myself don't
know anything about it, but imagine that
there is very little in it Mr. Powderly,
anyhow, is not worried over it."
"What action was taken in Evans' case?"
"As far as Joseph Evans' case is con
cerned it was referred to the Executive
Board at my request, as he was not there to
defend himself. I asked that the cases
would be treated separately for this reason,
and because McGaw had the floor to make
his own defense. McGaw's expulsion was
due solely to his maligning and stigmatiz
ing the officers of the General Assembly,
and for general unworthiness, and not at all
in consequence of the part he took in the
Jeannette importation case. The matttr of
McGaw's connection with this case was
brought up by James Campbell, but the
evidence produced was not of such a nature
as to have influenced his expulsiou; at least
that is my opinion."
"How about John M. Kelly and "William
"Mr. Kelly's case was brought up, and on
a point of order was re 1 erred to the General
Executive Board for action. It was not dis
cussed in the assembly. X have every
confidence in the board doing what is just
and right in the matter. William Mc
Auliffe's case was not referred to in any
Knights of Labor Do Not All Agree as to
Honoring Armstrong.
In labor circles yesterday there was no
little comment made on the lack of sym
pathy with the Armstrong celebration,
which was apparent in certain locals of the
Knights of Labor. It was said that over
1,600 Knights would be absent from the par
ade, and while about 800 of them, compris
ing the street car men, mixers and teasers
and salesmen could not, by nature of their
employment, turn out, there was no reason
why the remainder should not make a show
ing.. The warehousemen, who number about
200, have no legitimate excuse for absenting
themselves, and the teamsters, comprising
about a similar number, have elected to act
the role of spectators instead of swelling the
ranks of tbe procession. The tube workers
also, could as easily turn out as other mill
The Knights of Labor ranks, including
these deflections from its strength, will be
further reduced by those of its members who
will march in the Veteran Legion, the
Amalgamated molders, and others. Com
ment is made on the fact of these locals re
fusing to parade when such strong delega
tions are coming on from Kittanning, But

The Firm Owes Them for Three Weeks'
Work, Amounting to $7,000.
There was a considerable deal of dis
cussion, and no little inconvenience ex
perienced id Chartiers yesterday in conse
quence of Long & Co.'s shutdown. The men
had been looking forward to receiving the
two weeks' pay, and in addition, the 'lying'
week, or week held back by the firm after
the usual custom, but when 5 o'clock arrived
intimation was made thai no payments
would be made. The firm employed about
250 men, distributed around the 19 puddling
furnaces, the bar mill and guide mill, the
forge and outdoor departments, and the pay
sheet would have reached thetotalof eloseoi
$7,000. AH the departments, with the ex
ception of tho forge, were running double.
A meeting of the employes will be held on
Monday, at Chartiers, to consider what
action should be taken in tbe matter.
It Is Tboncbt Patrick Clcary Will Succeed
President Campbell.
Secretary George L. Cake, of the Window
Glass Workers' Association, said last night
that he knew of no new developments in tbe
case of President Campbell and William
Slicker. He had no information as to when
Mr. Campbell would be home.
It was reported yesterday that the result
of the vote for a successor to President
Campbell had been announced at the meet
ing of L. A. 300 on Friday night, but Sec
retary Cake denied the report last night
The voting sheets were only sent ont last
night, and the varions local assemblies have
not had time to send in their votes yet. The
result may be announced at the next meet
ing. It is reported by those who seem to be
posted on the matter that Patrick Cleary, of
the Southside, will be the winner.
And Arranging to Tarn Oat En Masse on
There was a well attended meeting of the

Mr. W.J. Lewis' Two Little Grandsons Were
Lost In the City.
Two children of Dr. Bobertson, of Hazel
wood, were lost down town yesterday through
the customary greed for knowledge dis
played by youngsters. The two boys were
driven down with an elder brother to get a
ride about 250 P. M. yesterday. The col
ored driver stopped at Gusky's store to get a
parcel, and while he was in the two little
ones attempted an exploration of the neigh
borhood, which they evidently succeeded in
accomplishing. When the driver returned
to the carriage he missed the two children,
and notified the police of the missing boys'
The grandfather ot the missing boys.
W. J. Lewis, proprietor of the Lewis
Block, on the corner of Smithfield street
and Sixth avenue, called at the Central sta
tion, and offered a large reward for the re
turn of the children. About 5 P. M. they
were recovered, and as one was only about 5
years of age, and the other 4, it was not
difficult to eflect the recovery.
The parents were alarmed about the dis
appearance of the children, and the grand
parent, Mr. Lewis, of Hazelwood, was the
most active in getting the boys back to their
home, as at first it was thought the chil
dren had been kidnaped. The driver of
Dr. Robertson's wagon drove back with
profuse apologies, but the capture of the
boys, who had simply gone out to take a
walk, was done in the simplest manner
possible, and tbe police are now in expecta
tion of the ample rewards offered during the

oak carved on the surface. On either end
will be large emblems of the Junior Order
of United American Mechanics. On the
reverse side of the pedestal will be panels
with the inscription: ."Erected by the Jr.
O. U. A. M. of Western Pennsylvania,"
and also the names of the councils that have
contributed to the fund for the erection of
the monument
Bising from the pedestal and supporting
the figure of the horse, will be a scrub oak.
The horse will stand 17 hands high, and the
fignre will represent a man six feet high.
The portrait of Washington will be made
from Hondon's bust, said to be the best one
of Washington in existence. Washington
will be represented at the time he was a
General, in full uniform, resting in an easy,
graceful position. The expression on the
face is thatjof a man whose attention "has
been suddenly attracted. The figure of
Washington on horseback will stand 10 ieet
above the pedestal.
The monument will be cut from Westerly
granite, said to be the densest and most en
durable material for the purpose known.
In color, it is a bluish gray, ana is from the
quarry adjoining that from which the ma
terial in the Frew and Clarke monuments
in the Allegheny Cemetery was taken. The
monument complete will weigh about 76
tons, and will be 19 feet high. The contract
price is $10,000, but when completed and
unveiled, it will cost nearly $12,000. Itwill
be erected in North Park, opposite Webster
street, with the horse's head directed toward
Sherman avenue. This will make the
statue to be apparently looking directly at
the greenhouse.
If the model is correctly imitated, the
statue will be a great work of art The
drapery about the uniform is well executed.

The movement to erect a Washington
Monument in the parks originated in June,
1886 throueh a suggestion made by Council
man Henry P. Staving, of the Tnird ward,
Allegheny, who is a prominent member ot
the order, The suggestion was acted upon
immediately, and in July of the same year
a committee of three members from each of
the 11 councils in Allegheny met in Com
mon Council Chamber. 'A. S. Smith, of
Young & Smith, was made the Permanent
Chairman of the committee. The first thing
to do was to secure the consent of the Park
Committee to allow the monument to be
placed in the parks. This was cheerfully
A Design Committee was then appointed,
consisting of A. S. Smith, J. M. Huddell,
A. B. Irwin, A. J. Neillie and Joseph
Morris. The arrangements were pushed
vigorously until the monument became an
assured fact It is intended to lay the
foundation for the monument on the 22d of
next February and have it completed and
ready for unveiling the following year. The
statue will be a great credit to the city and
an improvement to the parks.

Trinity Cannot Change Its Methods Until
Hext Easter.
Mr. C. L. Fitzhugh, a member of Trinity
Protestant Episcopal Church, whose wife is
s niece of Mr. Shoenberger's first wife, was
called upon yesterday evening concerning
the iron master's bequests. Mr. Fitzhugh
was asked: a
"Have yoa seen what The Dispatch
published exclusively this morning con
cerning Mr. Shoenberger's will?"
"X have." was the reply, "and I think
you gave all that is of interest to the public
The details and conditions of those bequests
and the vrivate legacies I do not know. The
matter is in the hands of Mr. Shoenberger's
relatives in New York, but the entire matter
will be made public in a short time, when
the will is probated. Mr. Shoenberger, as
all know, left no children, and his private
legacies are to relatives. Such matters can
ftardly interest the public?"
'Do you know what is the name specified
for the hospital on Penn avenue?"
"It is to be called St Margaret's Hos
pital. Mr. Shoenberger's first wife was
Miss Margaret Cust, of Greensbnrg. She
died, I think, in 1878."
"How is. the bequest to Trinity Church to
be invested?"
"The capital, 100,000, will be placed in
the hands of the trustees of the church, the
Interest only to be used for the benefit ot
the church. I think the conditions of the
bequest will be accepted by the church.
That matter, of course, rests with the vestry
Another member of Trinity Church ex
piessed the opinion that the conditions
would be accepted by the vestry. The pews
have been rented until next Easter, and no
change can be made before that time. The
rental from the pews is not as large as
would appear to one unacquainted with the
facts, and some of the members have for a
time been dissatisfied with the system. On
the other hand, it is suggested that there
will be a very strong opposition from some
of the oldest families in the parish to the
free seat system. Quite a number of the
best pew holders in the church would feel,
it is said, that the adoption of the new plan
would-be almost equivalent to a severance
of their connection with Trinity.
An effort was made to see Bev, Mr. Max
well, tbe rector, but he was not at home.
The vestrymen are reluctant to express an
opinion, desiring to learn the feeling of the
members before taking action in the matter.
They will, at any rate, await a full copy of
the will.
The eight acres of land on Penn Avenne
upon which the St Margaret Hospital will
be erected form very desirable blocks of
property and offer many natural advant
ages for the carrying' out of the details of
tbe plan. An intimate friend of Mr.
Shoenberger who was seen yesterday stated
that the iron master bad had tbe idea of a
magnificent hospital in bis mind for a good
many years.
"One of Mr.tShoenberger's criticisms,"
said this gentleman, upoi the usual hos
pital was, that there was no chance for
nature to plar her part in the restoration to
health ot. afflicted humanity, nothing but
bare walls) bleak hillsides or uninviting
roofs, things not calculated to cheer the
iaded eves or instill hope. Fresh air and
nature were two things Mr. Shoenberg him
self believed in, and X ara sure he bore this
in mind in arranging the details of St
Margaret's. I think that there will
be minute instructions in regard to the
beautifying of the entire tract in order that,
the hospital shall have the handsomest nat
ural surroundings of any similar institution
in this country. The land in its present
condition is valued at from $17,000 to $20,-
000 an acre, and, if improved or laid out,
would be easily woith $25,000 an acre."
Mr. Shoenberger's magnificent gifts were
the theme of conversation all over tbe city,
and much surprise was expressed that so im
portant a matter escaped tbe attention of the
entire city press, except The Dispatch.

An explosion took place yesterday after
noon at Shoenberger's milt Tbe men were
preparing to tap No. 2 Bessemer furnace,
the heat being about ready, when they were
relieved of their job by the liquid steel
bursting through the tapping hole into the
pit below. After the metal had flowed into
the wet pit an explosion occurred.
The steel was scattered around the shop ia
every direction. At least 60 men were ia
the place at the time the explosion took
place, yet, fortunately, no one was hit by
the flying metal. The sides of the buildingi
were all bespattered with the metal and
slag. The shop presented a most unseemly;';
appearance. There was a 30,000-pound f
charge in the converter at the time It broker '
