ONLY ONE ARRESTED
?6r President Yonns Secures
a Stay Till To-Day.
BHoerr and Young Both Interviewed
on McCaffrey's Grievance.
?THE STATE LIKELY TO HOLD ALOOF
There was another echo yesterday from
the collapse of the Lawrence Bank in the
shape of informations before Alderman
1 O'Donnell, made by Thomas M. McCaffrey,
the Butler street real estate agent, charging
President W. W. Young and Cashier John
Hoerr with embezzlement The charge is
brought under a special act of the State
legislature, providing a penalty for the re
ceiving of deposits by insolvent bankers,
brokers or officers of banks.
The informations were made at 11 o'clock
"yesterday morning. The warrants were
placed in the hands of Constable Connelly,
and soon afterward Cashier Hoerr was ar
rested at the bank building. President
Young will be arrested this morning. It
was at the request of his attorney, Mr. Mc
Cook, that the warrant was not served last
night. The following is a copy of the in
formation to which Mr. McCaffrey swore:
A DIBECT CLAIM MADE.
Oath having been administered according to
law, Thomas McCaffrey deposeth and sayetb. :
This Is the city of Pittsburg, In the county of
Allegheny, State of Pennsylvania, on the Zlst day
ot November, 1SS7. The defendants, William W.
Yonnjc and John Hoerr, did take and receive from
the affiant $170 78 as a deposit In the Iiawrcnce
HanL,ofPlttsbnrK, the said William Young being
at that time President ot said bank, and John
K Hoerr being the cashier of said bank: said bank
being a State bank, and at other times before said
the said bank, did receive other xnonevs of this
aslant In deposit in said bank, with the knowledge
at tbe time of the receipt of the several tins of
money that aald Lawrence Bank was at said time
Insolvent. Complainant therefore prarsnd de
sires that a warrant may issue and the aforesaid
defendants. William V. Young and John Hoerr,
may be arrested and held to answer this charge of
Sworn and subscribed to by
The act under which the charge is made
is an extremely severe one. It was drawn
up by F. M. Mngee, Esq., of this city, who
is" reported as having often said that there
were too many citizens oi tne state being
ruined by bank failures. The act is unlike
almost all others of its kind, in that it de
prives the courts of any discretionary power
in the matter of prescribing penalties for its
violation. It provides for a fine and im
prisonment, and prescribes the penitentiary
only as the place of confinement
A DBASTIC ENACTMENT.
The following is the act in full:
Pamphlet laws of 1SS9.
Ho. JG, page 145.
An act relating to receiving of deposits by Insol
vent bankers, brokers or any officer of a bank, na
tional, btate or private, defining the offense and
providing the punishment therefor.

and receive money from a depositor with
the knowledge that he, they or tbe bank Is at the

and shall be punished by a fine and double the

threeyears In the penitentiary. (Approved the

The Constable found Cashier Hoerr busily
engaged at tbe bank. He was completely
dumbfounded when tbe officer informed
him what was wanted, but recovering
quickly, said: "All right;" and the two went
together to the Alderman's office, where the
cashier pleaded not guilty to the charge,
and telephoned for Mr. Charles F. Ahl
born, who gave bonds in the sum of 2,500
1 for his appearance at the hearing next
WHAT HE SATS ABOUT IT.
Mr. Hoerr was seen at his home on Char
lotte street last night He was not inclined
to talk. He said he had been misrepresented
so often that he felt like refusing an inter
view, but, on being pressed to answer a few
questions, ventured to say that he understood
very well the law under which he had been
charged with embezzlement, but he thought
Mr. McCaffrey would find it a pretty hard
task to prove that the deposit had been re
ceived with the fnll knowledge of the bank's
insolvency. "Of course I received that de
.posit of $470." said he, "and put it in an
envelope, the same manner in which all
otber deposits received that day were dis
posed of. As soon as Assignee McKelvey
cets matters arranged, Mr. McCaffrey will
get his money back again. I feel perfectly
at ease as to the outcome of this matter. I
am not guilty of anv crookedness. In 22
years of hard work, I have managed to save
enough from my earnings to pay only $4,000
for a home, and it is all in the world that I
can call my own."
LOOKING POE THE PEESIDENT.
The officer who had been given the war
rant for President Young spent the larger
part or the afternoon looking for his man
out in Lawrenceville. He was then notified
that Mr. Young was down town attending
to some business. He came into the city
and was met by Attorney McCook. The
latter requested that Mr. Young be not ar
rested until this morning, and promised to
be responsible for the President's appear
ance at the Alderman's office this morning
.early The 'Squire, who is disposed to be
as lenient as possible in the case, said: "I
suppose it's all right," and further search
for Mr. Young was postponed.
A Dispatch reporter called on Presi
dent Yonng at his home last evening. The
'latter said: "I think you fellows might let
me alone. One of the city newspaper pro
prietors advised me to-day to quit talking
"But what have you to say About this
charge of embezzlement that has been
brought against you?"
DENIES KNOWLEDGE OF INSOLVENCY.
"I don't know anything about it I don't
know except through the evening papers
that charges have been made against me.
And if the accounts are trne, it does not
amount to anything. I deny knowing that
the bank was insolvent when Mr. McCaffrey
made his deposit and the officers of the
Union Rational Bank will swear that thev
did not know "it until after 12 o'clock o'f
the day upon which the bank closed. I
don't think they want me very badly. I
was on Fifth avenue nearly all day. I was
in the bank In the morning, and then I went
down town. I ate dinner at Mashey's, and
was at the bank again this evening. It is
simply ridiculous for Mr. McCafirey to
bring such a charge. Just to think that he
would get scared over $470. He will get
that all back. We are hearing of money
that we did not know we could get I may
say, too, that we know of some debts that
we did not know of before."
A rumor was afloat in Iiawrenceville yes
terday alternoon to the effect that in a con
versation with aheavy depositoron Fifth ave
nue yesterday afternoon Mr. Young had
stated that if Mr. McKelvey is let alone he
will be able to pay 30 per cent to the deposi
tors inside of six weeks.
ASSETS TUBNINO UP.
In his talk last night. President Young
denied having made such a statement, but
said that what he did state was that they
might pay 10 to 20 per cent in 60 days, as
assets were turning up of which they had
no knowledge at the time the bank closed.
"Will you say anything about the al
leged overdrawn account of Long & Co?"
'I don't know anything about it," re
plied Mr. Young, "and if I did I would not
, "Will you make a statement, as Presi
dent of the bank's condition?"
"Mr. Hoerr and myself signed the deed
of assignment to-day and I now have noth
ing to do with the bank."
The citizens of Lawrenceville are creatlv
..agitated over the turn affairs have taken.
MJJamors of crookedness are being almost
entirely discarded and straight out and out
charges are being made. "When Mr. Mc
Caffrey was seen he said:
M'CAFPEEY TALKS PLAINLY,
"I have claimed and I now think I can
prove that the bank has been insolvent since
November 4. Since then I have made de
posits amounting to about $4,000, at five
different times. When I went to make my
deposit on Thursday morning last it was 9:06
o'clock by my watch, and the bank was not
open. 1 kicked on tne doors, and they were
opened. There was no hesitancy on the part
of the bank officials in.reeeiving my money.
I intend pushing the matter, and I don't
think there will be any difficulty in seenring
Senator "CTppermau, who is interested in
the depositors' committee, said his com
mittee had done nothing yesterday, of any
importance. Just as soon as Attorney
General Kirkpatrick can meet them, a
committee will go to Harrisbnrg, to have a
conference with him. At the meeting in
the Lawrence school, Friday evening, which
will be confined exclusively to depositor,
the committee will make a full report of
what tney nave done. .Nothing has been
done yet looking toward the appointment
of a receiver to take the place of Assignee
McKelvey, but Senator Uppermau said it
was still the intention to make such amove.
The members of the depositors' committee
denied emphatically, yesterday, the inter
view with President Young, pnblished yes
terday moraine, to the effect that members
of the committee had seen him and talked
with him at Attorney McCook's office.
SUMOB YERT KIFE.
A great deal of talking was done among
Xawrenceville citizens last night Stories
of all kinds could be heard on all sides.
Mr. George Flaccus, one of the Directors of
the now defunct bank, said: "There is no
need of so much fuss over this matter. There
can nothing come of the cases against Presi
dent Young and Cashier Hoerr. I cannot
understand Mr. McCaffrey's motive in
bringing the charges. I saw him in the
bank yesterday morning talking to Presi
dent Young. They were on the best of
terms, calling each other "Billy" and
"Tommy," and so on. I guess the size of it
is Mr. McCaffrey wants a little free adver
tising, or a little notoriety, and he'll get it
Mr. Upperman is evidently making himself
prominent for political reasons. He wants
to let people know that he is acquainted
with Attorney General Kirkpatrick, and is
anxious to show off. I have known Mr.
McKelvey, tbe assignee,since he was a very
poor boy. He is perfectly reliable and cap
able of filling the position to which he has
been appointed. I have all confidence in
THE STATE HOLDS ALOOF.
The following special telegram from Har
risbnrg indicates the probable attitude of
the State in the matter. Deputy Attorney
General Sanderson was asked by The Dis
patch correspondent to-night what prob
ablv wnnld be done bv the law denartment
of the State if an application were made for
the protection of the depositors of the Law
rence Bank against the holding assignee.
He said be conld not see how the matter
could properly come before the Attorney
General, as ample means existed without
the intervention by that official, to invoke
the aid of the State in establishing the
rights of the depositors. Thus far he said
the department had received no information
that it would be asked to interfere in the
interesfof the many who had suffered by the
failure of the Lawrence Bank. Attorney
General Kirkpatrick is confined to his room
at Easton with rheumatism, and will prob
ably not be nt lor worst until next wees.
the deed was filed.
The deed of assignment made by the
Lawrence Bank to William M. McKelvey,
was filed in the Becorder's office yesterday,
by J. E. McKelvey, Esq., a brother of the
assignee. Tne assignment was made out
and signed by President Young and Cashier
Hoerr, of the bank, on November 26.
The assignment is of all the property of
the bank, real, personal or otherwise, and is
for the benefit of creditors. The assignment
is bv authority of the holders of more than
two-thirds of the stock. No statement of
assets or liabilities was made.
Yesterday's transaction are considered
very important, as it is said by many of the
depositors that if President Young and
Cashier Hoerr are convicted more suits will

box cf securities from the bank yesterday
Assignee McKelvev was seen. He said
he took what money there was in theLawrence
Bank yesterday and deposited it in a safe
place down town. He refused to say where
he had taken it or how much there was of it
He left the money that had been placed in I
envelopes, as ne considered be bad no juris
diction over it This is the money that was
deposited on the day the bank closed, and
it will be returned to the owners. Mr.
McKelvey will probably engage an expert
accountant to-morrow. He has one in view,
but he declined to state who it was, further
than to say that he lived in the city He
could not say when he will petition for ap
praisers. Everything is moving along
smoothly and satisfactorily, he said.
President Young, says "that some of the
people who are loudest in their denuncia
tion of himself and other officers of the bank
are men who owe the bank. He reiterates
that indiscretion is the greatest crime that
can be imputed to the management
A SENSATION ON THE MOUJST.
Amatcnr Scientists Unearth a Stone Pave
ment en Bocca Avenue.
Some amateur archaeologists who have
been digging in the Thirty-second ward
lately, came across a stone pavement yesUr
day afternoon at considerable depth below
the surface on Boggs avenue. It is in a
good state of preservation, and some people
think it would be profitable to change the
grade so as to utilize it Who were the
makers and for what purpose it was made
are points not yet established.
It much resembles the modern block stone
pavement People in that section of the
city being more of a practical than scientific
bent of mind, are not wasting time specu
lating on the pros and cons of its having
been made by the mound builders, but they
think it would be a good plan to utilize it
instead of the present highway. The matter
was excitedly discussed last night, but
noming aennite decided upon.

In the window of an art store on Wood

rests upon a stand, and before it appear the
heads of a dozen doleful turkeys singing the
sad strain, "Ah, world, I now must leave
thee: the parting deep doth grieve me."
The big beaks are open, while from the half

The rain of last night and to-day belongs
to a storm which shipped down across Ohio
from Michigan. It has all the freshness
and rawness of the average Michigan
product, but it is not native in Michigan.
It started down along the Mississippi some
where. It is suspected that there has been
another reduction of the colored population
in that benighted section of the woods, and
that the rain was brought on by the explo
sion of the gunpowder.
The weather man said last night that the
rain was a general one over Western Penn
sylvania, accompanied by high wind. He
thinks tbe weather will grow steadily colder
during to-day, and is of opinion that the
rain will not last forever. He even ventures
tbe prediction that it will stop before Christ
mas, arguing that the weather will grow so
cold, sooner or later, as to chance the rain to
snow. This prediction, of conrse, is subject
to amendment in case the weather should
become capricious and decline to follow out
tne conrse or conduct suggested to it.

HONORING A LEADER.
Workers Join in Testimony to the
Worth of Thos. A Armstrong.
ARRANGEMENTS FOR TBE 2 ARADE
Delegations From tbe Surrounding Dis
tricts Will Participate.
LINE OF HAECfl AND OTHER DETAILS
To-day the labor organizations of this city
and the neighboring districts will record
their appreciation of the Thanksgiving Day
of 1889, by assembling to do honor fo the
memory of a man who was noted as a leader
among them, and who did more to place
wage-earners on the substantial footing tbey
now enjoy than any other man of his time.
The arrangements for the parade incidental
to the unveiling of the Thomas A. Arm
strong monument in West Park.
Allegheny, are now complete, and all
that is wanting is a fair day to make
the occasion a memorable -one in the annals
of civic history. The city lathers have
seen to the comfort of the processionists by
having the streets along- which they will
march thoroughly washed, a matter of de
tail which will be fully appreciated. The
managers of the demonstration have very
properly decided to prevent any advertising
wagons from following in the wake of tbe
parade, and if any attempt is made in this
direction it will be at once frustrated.
A BIO CEOWD EXPECTED.
A conservative estimate of the number
likely to participate in the proceedings is
put at 15,000, but should the weather prove
unpropitious this estimate will be consid
erably reduced. Special trains will trans
port contingents irom Uniontown, Bcottdale,
Connellsville, Greensburg, McKeesport,
Braddock, Homestead, Kittanning, Leech

Germans Will be Oat Earlr
Morning to Open Their Hall.
The Germans of the two cities will arise
early this morning and prepare to take part
in the exercises attendant upon the dedica
tion of the new Turner Hall on Canal
street, Allegheny. All day yesterday work
men were kept busy carrying new furniture
into the building and putting the last
touches upon tbe interior. Considerable
work will have to be done yet before the
building is completed.
The exercises at the hall will be preceded
by a street parade. John N. Neeb will be
chief marshal. The parade will be in four
divisions, embracing all the German so
cieties and organizations in the two jcities.
The Southside and West End divisions will
form on Jane street and march to Liberty
street Allegheny, where they will join the
second division and East End societies.
They will then proceed to Chnrch avenuo
and Federal street where the third division
will be picked up. The route of the parade
was published in The Dispatch some
days ago. The procession will pass in Re
view on Chestnut street and then march to
At the latter place an entertainment will
be given. Addresses will be made by City
Solicitor George Elphenstone, Dr. H. W.
Hackelman, H. C. Boedel and others.
The building is a three-story brickrstruo

Young Hackett Immured In Central Station
on a Terrible Charge.
In the McDermott case, where a boy was
struck in the back with an apple by another
lad named Hackett, on Friday last, at the
Fort Pitt Glass Works, which resulted in
McDermott's death, some new complications
have arisen. Officer Bobert Bobinson last
evening arrested William Hackett, the
young man who threw tbe apple, at his
home, 32 Hazel street. He had gone to
Jeannette in search of work, but on reading
in the Dispatch of the death of McDer
mott, he at once returned to give himself np
to the authorities.
Before leaving his house, however, Detec
tive Bobert Bobinson took charge of him,
and he was taken to Central- station and
lodged on a charge of murder. When the
prisoner entered the Central station last
evening. Assistant Superintendent Roger
one except his attorney, who is not yet se
lected. The opinion of the police officials.
including Inspector McAleese and others, is
that the murder, if such it can be called, is
merely a technical charge, and the result
will be a discharge on the first hearing.
T01CE SIGNALS USED.
The Engineer of the Westlnghonie Bnlldlng
Explains nn AccIdenO -
Prissly Miller, the engineer at the West
inghouse building, called at the Coroner's
office yesterday and wished to place himself
in the right light regarding the death of the
men killed by falling three stories last Sat
urday on a pile of bricks. He said that on.
account of the inquest being held over, he
felt naturally anxious as to the outcome,
and that the signals given at this building
were not at all what he was accustomed to.
At former places where he had been engi
neer one man'had fall.control of the eleva
tor, he said, and the signal was given by
hand to raise'and lower, but at the West
inghouse building there was no such ar
rangement and anybody conld call out "Pull
her up" or "Drop ner, ana ne was obliged
to follow instructions.
Mr. Miller was very much excited over
the matter and wished distinctly to be un

three of their Murrysville gas wells yester
day, owing fe the pressure being greater
than the pipes caa carry. This company
has a 20-inch diaaieter main, running from
the Murrysville gas fields; yet so strong
aud so plentiful is the gas that they assert
they eaa SHpply not only their own great

gives them more gas than they can possibly
use. The outlook for tbe winter for natural
gas is as bright as the consumers Want, they
say. The same inconveniences that were
experienced last year by limited supplies,
stoppage, work, and in many cases causing
hardship, and giving limited supplies of
bread, are not likely to transpire this win
ter, according to present indications.
The Philadelphia Company has com
pleted its 36-inch main, which Is IS miles in
extent, and it was opened for use last Saturday.
The new liae is acting remarkably well.
It is the largest pipe line that has yet been
laid in the country, and its construction
will run into millions. Unlike the other
pipe lines, which are generally made out of
wrought or cast iron, this giant line of the
Philadelphia Company is made out of open
hearth tank steek Each section is tightly
riveted together and very solidly built
If all the wells were turned into this 36
inch main, it is said, there would not be
pressure enough to burst the line. The
tank steel has great resisting force, and it
is better adapted for a gas coaveyer than the
old wrought or cast iron.
There is one thing, however, which may
condemn the use of tank steel for pipe lines.
It is more liable to- leakage than the cast
iron. The Philadelphia Company does not
anticipate any trouble from this cause.
