JMUNHALL IS EXCITED.
The Runaways Laugh at New Jer
MILLIONAIRE FATHER AMIABLE.
The latest elop em ent in high life is one
that has been furnishing the people of the
lively little borough of Homestead a sub
ject for conversation for the past few days.
The parties in the affair are Miss Essie
Munhall, daughter of John Munhall, the
wealthy coal operator, and Joseph E.
Schwab, brother of General Manager
Schwab of the Edgar Thomson and Home
stead Steel "Works. They were married in
Camden, the lamous Gretna Green, last
Thursday and are expected home this week.
Miss Munhall is a graduate of the young
ladies' seminary at "Washington, Pa., and
is very well known in this county. She is
below five feet jn heigh, a blonde and
very brown hair. She is prepossessing in ap
pearance, has many graces and is acharmibg
voung conversationalist. She is under
age, and this was the cause for the elopement.
Mr. Schwab is at present a civil engineer
in the Edgar Thomson "Works at Braddock.
He was formerly manager of the 23-inch
mill at Homestead, and has considerable
ability in mill work. He is a young man,
being only about 30 years of age, and is a
graduate of St. "Vincent's CollegeatLatrobe.
THE OLD, BUT SWEET STOUT.
The two voung people were thrown to
gether a great deal, and the usual result fol
lowed. Ther fell in love, but there were
objections to'a marriage. The young bride's
father, when the proposition for his daugh
ter's hand was made to him, listened pa
tientlv, but said no. He told his daughter
that it she was determined to marry her
lover she could do so, but the match would
not have his sanction. It is stated the rea
Eon was on account of Mr. Schwab's re
ligion. He is a Catholic, while his bride
and her parents are strict Presbyterians.
The fires of love, however, were strong
epcuch to burn away the barriers, and the
couple disappeared "Wednesday morning
last.1 They went to Philadelphia, and from
there they'went to Camden, where a minis
AJetter was received by one of the bride's
young sisters several days ago, bnt no men
tion was made of tne wedding. Several of
Mr. Schwab's friends have heard from tfie
groom, to the effect that he was married
Thursday. The couple will enjoy a short
honeymoon tour in the East and then return
home for the lorgiveness.
Miss Munhall is a niece of Captain
Michael Munhall, of Munhall Bros,, of this
city. Her father is owner of Munhall's
hollow, back of Carnegie, Phipps & Co.'s
plant He owns an extensive coal territory
in that vicinity and is quite" wealthy. His
residence is on" the hillside above the Pitts
burg, "Virginia and Charleston road, and is
a place of admiration for the passengers on
trains on both sides of the river. In con
versation last evening with a Dispatch
reporter Mr. Munhall said:
KOT A STEEN FATBEE.
"Of course I am sony my daughter went
away, but I guess she was determined to get
married. "When I was spoken to about the
matter I objected and advised her against
the step. The young man, I suppose, is ail
right, but I had reasons against the mar
riage. I did not know him very well, but
be is well spoken of. I have not heard
anything definite from them, but I suppose
they are taking a trip through the East.
My daughter is not yet of aeeand thought
it was necessary to run away. "When they
will come back I do not know."
It is thought Mr. Schwab will visit his
relatives, near Latrobe, on his way home.
He is a native of "Westmoreland county and
'the family is among the best known there.
AFEAID OP THE TKDST LAW.
Tfao Reason St. Lonis Manufacturers Polled
Ont pf tbe Lend Fool.
The report published in The Dispatch
yesterday from St. Louis, to the effect that
the local representatives of the National
Lead Trust had resigned their truslships,
caused considerable stir in this city. It
caused quite a number of persons to specu
late what it meant, and wonder if any of the
Pittsburg members would pull out. In tbe
telegram it was stated that developments re
specting the condition of the trade are likely
to follow. The Pittsburg members denied
that there would be any developments, and
said the cause of the withdrawal of the St.
Ijouis men was on account of the new Mis
souri anti-trust law, which they were afraid
of. They also stated that the withdrawal
would not injure the trust in any way.
A gentleman conversant with the affairs
of the trust stated yesterday that Armstrong
& McKelvy were practically in the trust.
A few weeks more would see them in the
combination and holders of trust certificates
in exchange for their plant. The members
of the firm will neither admit nor deny
anything concerning their movements in the
The gentleman who furnished the in
formation was asked the reason for the de
cline of the stock in the face of his state
ments about the solid condition of the trust.
He said the reason the stock declined was
on account of its sympathy with other
stocks. The cottonseed oil and sugar stocks
.decreased greatly within the past four
months, and the lead trust went with it.

WAKTS HOEE HELP.
The Facilities In the U. S. District Attor

District Attorney "Walter Lyon returned
home yesterday morning from "Washington,
where he had been in consultation with the
Attorney General in regard to increasing
the facilities for doing business in this dis
trict He want3 another deputy, or assist
ant to Assistant District Attorney Alcorn,
who is overcrowded with work.
This district does more business than the
Eastern, which includes Philadelphia. The
claim is made that the extra help should be
allowed on this account.
The "Western district comprises 46 coun
ties. Court is held at four different places.
It takes in every county along the New
York State linn with the exception of
"Wayne. In the Eastern district there are
but 21 counties, court being held only in
Philadelphia. The latter district does not
have the number of criminal cases that are
tried in this section, on account of the
country not being so mountainous. In the
Eastern district there have always been two
deputies, who are paid $4,500 per year.
About a year ago David Cameron, a Re
publican deputy, was removed from this
district, and the place was never filled.
The fiscal year runs from July to July.
The intervention of this at the present.time
will necessitate non-action in the matter.
Meanwhile Mr. Alcorn will struggle along
at a salary of $3,500, while the Government
doubles up and saves 3,000.

STBEET EAILEOADS FOR THE EAST END
The regular session of Councils was held
yesterday afternoon, and the variety of
topics discussed was only equaled by the
vigor with which they were handled. In
Common Council "W. A. Masee presided in
the continued absence of Mr. Holliday, who
is still suffering from his accident Under
the cajl of wards a number of papers relat
ing to streets were presented and .referred,
among others the ordinance drawn up by
Coroner McDowell for establishing a steam
boat patrol service, consisting of a boat
properly supplied with appliances for fire
and police work, for receiving the bodies of
drowned persons and other work.
Mr. Carnahan presented an engraving of
the Hon. "William Pitt, whose name the
city bears. It was the gift of "William G.
Johnston, who obtained it while on a visit
to England recently. Mr. Carnahan said
that it was a coincidence that the picture
was printed in the year the French evacu
ated Fort Duquesne, and it became Port
Pitt in 1760. Mr. Carnahan, in bis re
marks, paid a glowing tribute to Pitt, and
spoke at length of what he had done for the
American colonies. The picture was ac
cepted and the clerk directed to make a
THE FBEE BRIDGE SUBJECT.
Mr. Carr.of the Twenty-seventh ward,pre
sented a resolution providing for an election
in February to decide on increasing the city
debt for the purpose ol establishing free
bridges. Mr. Carr said be offered the resolu
tion to test the sincerity of the members who
at the last meeting professed such great love
for the Southside. He held that the assessed
valuation of the city is 200,000,000. The net
debt is 510,000,000. and this he said was the
legal basis on which to place all calcula
tions, leaving room for adding legally $1,
000.000 to tbe debt, if tbe people so desired.
The Chair called Mr. Carr's attention to a
provision in the city charter which says that
an increase in the debt must be obtained by
ordinance submitting the question to a vote
of the people. The act called for an ordi-
L nance, not a resolution, and so this resolu
tion was out ot order.
Mr. Duncan asked Mr. Carr if he would
accept as a substitute a resolution for a joint
committee to investigate and report what
can be legally done in the direction of free
bridges. Mr. Carr accepted the amendment
and it was adopted.
A STREET LIKE ORDINANCE.
The East End Street Railway Company
ordinance raised some commotion. Mr.
Carnahan wanted to know where the road
goes, and who will bnild it, and did not get
a regular answer. Messrs. MacGoriigle and
Wright, in whose ward the line will run,
spoke in favor of it and said it would open
up a large section of good territory.
Mr. Ferguson opposed the ordinance. He
said the traction companies had too many
privileges,and didn't pay enough to the city.
He moved to postpone action until the next
meeting, and notify tbe directors of the
line to attend the meeting and explain their
plans. This motion was defeated, and the
ordinance passed by a vote of 29 ayes to 1
no. Mr. Ferguson cast the negative vote
and Mr. Carnahan refused to vote,
saying he did not know enough on the sub
ject to vote intelligently. During the de
bate on the ordinance Mr. Donley accused
Mr. ergnson ot being an obstructionist.
Mr. Ferguson denied the charge and re
torted that he always came to the meetings
with his head clear. The Chair rapped the
gentlemen to order before the talkiada
chance to grow moie personal.
Tho ordinance for the purchase of lots in
the Thirty-second and Thirty-fifth wards for
fire engine houses was taken up and passed.
Mr. Carnahan presented the report of tbe
Chamber of Commerce on thencroachments
on the rivers, as recently published. Mr.
Carnahan thought the subject was of great
importance, and he moved that a committee
be appointed to consider what steps the city
should take, with power to have a survey
made by the Public "Works Department.
The resolution was adopted, and Messrs.
Bigham, Gardiner, Shannon and Ferguson
were appointed for the Common branch.
MB. CARE'S IDEA.
Mr. Carr presented a blank ordinance pro
viding lor increasing the city debt for the
purpose of the erection or purchase, of
bridges for public use. It was sent to the
special Committee on Free Bridges. On
this committee the Common Council mem
bers are Messrs. Duncan, Carr, McCurry
After the passage of several street ordi
nances and the postponement of one to
change the name of Boup street to Negley
avenue, the Common branch adjourned.
In Select Council the October report of
tbe Department of Public batety, showing
expenses to have been $52,778 13, was pre
sented and adopted. Ordinances were passed
finally granting the use of certain streets
and highways to the Bast End Street Bail
wav Company and its branches; increasing
the salary of the three fire alarm telegraphic
operators of the city from 900 to $1,150 per
year, to go into effect from date of passage.
The engraving of "William Pitt, presented
by"W. G. Johnston1, Esq., to the city, was
accepted on behalf of the city in an appro
priate set of resolutions and Mr. Beating
made a retrospective speech.
Mr. Nisbet introduced tbe free bridge
question concisely in a resolution, which
provided for the appointment ot a special
committee of three members from Select and
four from Common Council, whose duty it
would be to secure and furnish to Councils
all the information obtainable on the mat
ter, particularly on the following points:
First, the value of the present structures;
second, the city's right to purchase them;
third, the probable cost of new structures
and tbe city's "right to build them; fourth,
whether the county is not legally bonnd to
provide free bridges lor the nse oi the peo
ple of Pittsburg, inasmuch as taxes are paid
for the construction and maintenance of
bridges throughout the county by the tax
payers of Pittsburg.
KEATING SHUT HIM OUT.
"When the Common Council resolution on
free bridges came up for action, Mr. Robert
son arose, but Mr. Seating, in a joke,
moved to concun, with Common Council's
action on the resolution, his object being to
prevent Robertson's speech. The latter,
however, declared that he was going to
speak on the matter whatever action, was
taken, and Mr. Keating withdrew his mo
tion. Mr. Robertson then made a short speech,
and proposed a substitute to the Common
Council resolution, tbe preamble of which
wsb similar in effect to the Common Council
resolution with the exception that it omitted
the consideration of gaining the consent ot
the electors of the city, and the matter of
issuing bonds for tbe purpose oi buying
bridges. The substitute provided for a com
mittee o( eight, composed qf three members
of Common and two of Select Council, the
Mayor, the Controller and the Chief of the
Department of Public "Works, who were to
ascertain the cost of purchasing a bridge,
and report to Councils in time to allow the
Finance Committee to embody tbe purchase
in their next appropriation.
Mr. Keating and Mr. Nisbet objected to
Mr. Robertson's resolution as being en
tirely distinct in, its provisions irom the
Common Council resolution, and it there
fore could not be offered as a substitute.
The Chairman sustained them, and said
Mr. Robertson's resolution could not be
taken up until the other was disposed of.
offered to' accept this solution of the tangle
in which he found himself, but Mr. Lamb
ing took the floor, and said the Common
Council resolution had been 'improperly
understood. "While the preamble, of that
resolution touched upon tbe electors being
called upon to vote upon the question, the
acrtal text of the document made no refer
ence to it. and none was Intended. Mr.
Mr. Lambing thought the matter was drift
ing to an unseemly contest between Select
and Common Councils for the chairmanship
of that special committee.
ME. ROBERTSON AMENDED.
Mr. Robertson maintained that he had no
thought of such a contest He wanted some
provision made to insure prompt action and
an early report on tbe part of the committee.
In order to secure this he offered several
amendments and 'changes, but was ruled out
of Order until he withdrew his resolution
entirelv and then amended the Common
Council resolution bv adding to it: "This
committee shall report in time to give
Finance Committee an opportunity to em
body the same in their general appropria
tion." Dr. Evans was opposed to considering the
purchase of any of the bridges, as the
figures they would ask would probably be
too ridiculous to tnins, oi. xiereminaea
Mr. Robertson of his speech a week ago, in
which he urged the purchase of the Point
bridge. "This bridge," he continued, "cost
$500,000 when built, but has never paid any
thing on the investment, and is probably
tbe reason they want to sell. But, if there
is not enough travel to make it pay it
would be but little of an improvement over
the "present state of affairs, because there is
comparatively few to use it. As a monu
ment to the Thirty-sixth ward the Point
bridge would no doubt be a success, but no
one else scarcely would get any use of it but
Thirty-fifth and Thirty-sixth ward people."
Mr. Monroe and Mr. Nisbet both coun
selled against haste in tbe matter of pro
ceeding lor free bridges. Mr. Monroe said
he thought, and there were others with him,
that as Pittsburg and Allegheny paid 75 per
cent of the taxes required for free bridges
over small streams throughout tbe county,
the county Bhould help to pay for free
bridges in the two cities. He thought the
Bridge Committee should get some good
legal advice on this view of the matter, and
find out if the county could not legally be
compelled to pay its share.
air. Nisbet tnougnftoat toe uommon
Conncil resolution, and Mr. Robertson's as
well, were asking too much in the time they
had to act according to its provisions. How
erer. he would support the Common Council
resolution as amended by Mr. Eobertson, if
the resolution previously offered by him was
included as an amendment to it This was
agreed to, and both amendments were
adopted, after which Council adjourned,

Will Have a Good Showing on the Occasion

The Amalgamated Association of Iron and
Steel "Workers is not letting any grass grow
under its feet in the matter of securing a
large turnout of its men 5n Thursday. It is
said that the number of iron workers which
will parade will exceed any former occasion,
but a larger percentage will take part irom
out-of-town mills than from the local.
Youngstown will furnish about 1,000 men,
and as many, or more, may be expected from
New Castle, Sharon and "Wheeling. The
Apollo, Leechburg and Kittanning mills
will send altogether about 800 men.
The largest local contingent will be from
Homestead, numbering 700 men, in charge
of Hugh J. O'Donnell, and the Vesuvius
mill at Sharpsburg will furnish a quota of
400. McBeesport has 6,000 iron workers,
but it is thought that scarcely one-fourth of
them will be in line. Some mills, on the
other hand, will turn out their full
strength. It was stated yester
day that of the "men employed in 35
iron and steel mills in tbe city and neigh
borhood, not more than an average ot one
half will turn out The following estimate
is near the mark: Of the 3,000 men em

which he proposed to "buckle up" Truby
behind his back.
Inspector McAleese told him that outside
of very grave criminals such measures of pre

to depend upon the arsenal he carried in his

A Reduction In Freight Rates CaualngTrou
ble Among Western Lines.
The railroads west of Chicago have issued
a circular giving rates from Chicago, St
Paul and Minneapolis and intermediate
points, which they will apply on business
originating east of the Indiana and Illinois
State line. The rates are governed by the
official classification, while on business
originating in Chicago higher rates will be
charged and governed by the "Western classi

State lines have not yet decided whether it
will be legal or not for them to be a party to
this transaction by issuing through rates on

Homestead Wonld Like to See the
City Poor Honse Taken Away.
0THEB SITES ARE SUGGESTED.
Inmate3 Cfiuld Be Employed Cultivating
Kew Farming Lands.
A BONUS OP $350,000 FOE THE CITI
"While there is considerable unripe music
being lost apparently.-at least on unsym
pathetic ears, regarding the grievance of
making the rural districts support a county
poorhouse almost exclusively tot the bene
fit of Braddock, McKeesport and Verona?
there is some argument being addressed to
the supporters of the City Home
that would probably be effective,
if urged more vigorously and
brought home to taxpayers' intelli
gently, as it is the argumentum pecuniae. It
is none other than the one in support of a
proposition to 'sell the present City Home
and its appurtenances, and locate another
where land is cheap. It is estimated that
the change could be made and the city bene
fited to such an extent thereby that the
cost of maintaining its paupers for many
years would be almost nominal, and if it is
to be done it were well that it be done quick
ly, while the boom is on, and manufacturers
It is said the present site could be sold for
$6,500 an acre, and that the city could find
a better location, and more than duplicate
the present buildings and still have $350,000
remaining. In fact it is argued that land
could be secured for an almost nominal sum
that would answer the purpose almost as
well as the present tract at Homestead. It
isn't necessary that it be, good land, for
panper farming doesn't pay anyhow.
The rear ends of the lots in
the Thirty-second and Thirty-third wards
which run to Grandview avenue in the
Thirty-second ward, woujd answer the pur
pose as well as any other place. The male
inmates who are able to work might be set
first to building an immense retaining wall
along the Panhandle Bailway, and the rail
way company would doubtless donate a few
thousand dollars toward it for its own bene
fit, possibly would haul the stone necessary
gratis. Then the Harold Skimpoles who
SPEND THEIB -WINTERS
in the Home could be made build the wall
under the guidance of a few practical
mechanics, and when it was finished the
hill might be terraced, and made a thing of
beauty and a joy forever, instead of pre
senting the appearance of having been
blasted and scarred bv the wrath of heaven
as at present It could also be made into a
vineyard, and the product would pay as
well as poorhouse agriculture does at
present Of course the first thing necessary
to be -done would be the erection oi tne
necessary buildings. The advantages of
this plan wonld be first, nearness to the
center of the city, and the reclamation of a
large quantity of waste land. Its present
crop otelderberries is scarce worth gather
ing. A station might be made about half
way up the freight incline plane railway, at
which inmates could be loaded or unloaded.
Another proposition made is to select some
sterile site along the line of some railway,
far enough out so there" would be no likeli
hood of the city ever growing out to it, put
the buildings up and let the inmates' labor
be made profitable in the improvement of
the land. There is very little land on the
bottoms of Allegheny county equal to that
of some once sterile knobs on the summits of
the Alleghenies, and pauper labor is just
tbe kind needed for such work, as it costs
nothing but coarse food and clothing. If,
as claimed, intelligent grain farming does
not pay on land worth $200 an acre in the
United States, how can pauper farming be
expected to pay on land worth 32 times
that amount? It would yield better return,
however, on $40 land, plenty of which can
rHome located far from the city bummers
would not appreciate its advantages so much
as at present as they do not like to be where
they cannot be near the conveniences of life,
as, though they get transportation to the
Home, tbey cannot get it irom it.
"WORK FOE THE PATJPEES.
It should not be understood that any in
telligent person suggests the subduing of
any forest by pauper labor better set
paupers to planting trees but there are
tracts oi land so stony that private enter
prise will not utilize them for centuries, and
it might be profitably done by pauper labor.
"Were the Poor Farm sold two thriving
towns would become one, and the farm
would soon be covered with buildings. In
deed, Homestead might be willing to give
something toward affecting the removal of a
nuisance. Doubtless the people who se
cured the present farm never even in their
dreams expected to see the city approach
within a few yards of it, but it is there, and
the institution has become an eyesore, and
-while it is an accommodation to bummers,
the worthy poor are entitled to a residence
where their nerves will not be destroyed by
the shrieks of steam whistles, rumbline of
railway trains and the concussion of enor
mous trip hammers.
The amount saved the city in interest
alone bv a change of base would be sufficient
to provide for the wants ot 200 or more
paupers, and were the farm farther away
and nlentv of stonerjickintrand hauline pro
vided for male inmates, there are scores of
able-bodied loafers who spend their times in
poorhouses who would not patronize "home
industry." The backwoods counties that
maintain poorhouses are not bothered by
tramps in a degree relative to city" patron
age in this respect
.It seems to be a matter of dollars and
cents mainly, for while the same argument
applies, though in a less degree, in favor of
removing the County Home, Mr. A. J. Mc
Qnitty says the people in the vicinity evince
nfrdislike to it, and are well satisfied with
it. It is to be presumed that as it is non
supporting it affords a borne market, and it
is only the taxpayer who is not benefited
whose ox is gored.
DE. OLDSHUE'S C0NDITI0H.
The Pollcp Sarseon Will Live for Several
Months Yet. ,
Discouraging reports of the condition of
Dr. Oldshue, police surgeon, having been
current for some days, a call was made at
his home on Fifth avenue last evening to
ascertain the true state of affairs..
Dr. Moyer, his assistant, said that al
though the doctor was a very sick man, the
attendant physician had by no means lost
hope of his recovery. His vitality at pres
ent was high enough to warrant his living
for several months unless some necident
should occur. He is being attended by four
doctors, amons which is Joseph Dickson.
M. D., and every care possible is taken.-"
The condition of the patient nas mucn im
proved since last Thursday.
The doctor added that to show how mis
takes may occur in the diagnosis of a case,
Dr. Oldshue was examined by an eminent
physician of New York on his return from
Europe in September. He was told that he
had but ten days to live. This Dr. Moyer
accounted for by the fact that Dr. Oldshue,
already suffering irom a malignant disease,
was exhausted by-a long voyage and very
low both in spirits and vitality. To-day,
he said, the prospects were much better and
there was no foundation for the statement
that the patient bad suffered from a para

Since the 16th of October, that delicious
and russet-hued day on which grease was
struck on the Arbuckle-Jamison farm and
the eyes of the world turned to Stowe town
ship, $25,000 worth of oil have flowed out df
that six-inch hole, and it is still paying
$125 to $150 a day. No. 2, a few rods dis
tant from the pioneer, is showing for a big
well, and is expected to be as large as her
sister, with a possibility of being larger.
Mr. Jamison says it is in contemplation to
pump jmo. l, tnougn sne sun has a suffi
cient head of gas to expel the oil. He states
that when the well on the Aiken farm de
clined to 125 barrels a day she was pumped,
and production increased to about 200 bar
rels, and he thinks the same result will fol
low in the Arbuckle.
The Jennings & Patterson, on the Davis
farm, is making 20 barrels an hour without
agitation and more with it. They were
proposing to stir her up yesterday. The
same firm seem to be fortune's favorites.
Thev bought in seven paying wells last
week, ,and their Missionary No. 2, near
Duff City, Brush creek extension, was
drilled a foot deeper on Saturday, and its
flow ran up from 15 to 33 barrels an hoar.
Tbe Highland wel,owned by Beighard
Bros., one-third of a mile from Brownstown,
on the Evergreen Bailway, is again being
worked, having been plugged in order to
allow the owners time to secure more leases.
She yielded 72 barrels a day to the pump.
The village of Imperial, at one end of the
Montour Bun Bailway, has until lately
been content to ship coal and milk, but a't
present its people are in a ferment, it being
believed that they are in the oil belt, and
operations are beginning to be pressed with
vigor. The milk business on that road
hasn't much show in competition with that
on the Panhandle, shippers on the latter
getting five gallons carried for 7 cents,
whereas Montour Bun shippers must pay a
cent a gallon on' each railway, the 'Montour
and the Pittsburg and Lake Erie. "Were it
not for excessive freights the dairy business
in that valley would be large, as gross grows
luxuriantly and land is not very dear.
DE0TE A STE0KG MAN iTO WATEE.
Mr. Potter, Filled With Whisky, Tries to
Although the water supplied by the Mc
nongahela "Water Company, with, tbe Beck's
Bun sewage a ccompaniments, might drive
a man to whisky as a beverage, the contrary
took place about 1020 P. M. yesterday.
Bichard Potter, who claims to hail from
Masontown, Pa., ran down Grant street,
pursued, as he said, by a select assortment
of imaginary Italians, armed with stilettos
and Salvini's guttural style of declamation.
Not stopping to consider the lilies' and
other floating population of the river at
that point, he plunged in up to his neck,
thus obtaining an exterior water gauge at a
level witb the spirit gauge of his interior.
Officer Maxwell interrupted the natatory
exercises of Mr. Potter, and calling the
patrol wagon sent him to a dryer place in
the Central station, where by nrerning he
will have become very dry, both externally
and internally. His charge was that of be
ing a simple drunk, but to avoid any
suicidal attempts, as well as a severe cold
from wet garments, his clothing was re
moved and a blanket as toogh as a boarding
house beefsteak substituted.

Tbe "Wool Growers' and Sheep Breeders'
Assoeiatloa ef Pennsylvania met yesterday
at the Seventh Avenue Hotel. Abont 50
gentlemen were present from this. Common
wealth and a few Ohio men were in attend
ance. A general contention of wool grow
ers of the United States has been called, to
be held in "Washington on Monday, Decem
ber 2, the day on which Congress meets, to
endeavor to prevent a change of the wool
tariff. The meeting yesterday was called to
elect delegates to the "Washington Conven
President Joha N. McDowell, of "Wash
ington county, occupied the chair. He said
that New England was moving to have
certain brands of w6ol made free and others
taxed with an ad valorem duty. The wool
growing interest, he knew, demanded a
specific duty, with an additional ad valorem
tax on the higher grades. He said that
Australian wool was admitted as carpet
wool and then used for clothine. Daniel
Smith, of East Liverpool, argued that the
specific tax on; wool should be 12 cents a
pound, with an additional ad valorem duty
on the high grades. He declared that the
"hayseeds" would not get their" rights until
they took an active interest in politics, Mr.
"There is a contest for tbe Speakership of
Congress. Among the candidates are Mr.
Beed, of Maine, and Major McKinley, of
Ohio. The former represents the New En
gland manufacturers and the latter the wool
growers, so you can take your choice."
Speechespnade by other wool growers of
Pennsylvania favored a specific duty, some
maintaining that it would be better to ask
and get 8 cents a pound than to ask 12 and
get only 2 or 3. It was a source of general
complaint that the customs officers, whose
duty it is to appraise wool, are ignorant of
all matters pertaining to that great product
At the afternoon session the following
named officers were elected: John Mc
Dowell, of "Washington, President; W. A.
Herriott, Allegheny county, Vice Presi
dent; J. "W. Axtell, Allegheny, Secretary;
I. Xi. Faddes, Lawrence county; Treasurer.
Messrs. McDowell, Clark And Nelson, ot
Washington county; W. A. Herriott and
"W. C. McFarland, of Allegheny county,
and J. "W. Savers, of Lawrence county, were
chosen delegates to the convention in "Wash
A series of resolutions were -passed, in
which they protested against classifying
wool as raw material; indorsed Major Mc
Kinley for Speaker; insisted on better in
terpretation of importation laws; objected to
the large quantities of ring waste coming
into the country, and finally declaring they
didn't want the earth. -
