PITTSBURG. THURSDAY. NOV. 28, 1889.
" The skies are weeping, but we may smile;
there is a good deal of water under foot, bat
! there are a great many homes in this coun
ty which to-day plow with a cheery warmth,
and the slaughter of the turkeys has been
great. If prosperity, contentment and
peace were to be manifested for the nonce in
. name, to-night wonld see a wondrous blaze
of light over all the United States. In
Pittsburg there would be a veritable con
llacration beside which the glare of ten
thousand mighty wells of natural cas wonld
, be no more than a rushlight. And the
blessed part of all this is that the prosperity
is general, the happiness is diffused, and
nobody is forced to put up with the picked
bones of the turkey. There is enough white
meat to go around.
An author of wondrous wisdom once
labored long and heavily upon a book. On
the last pase of manuscript he sent to the
printers he wrote in place of the wordjints:
"Thank Heaven, the book is done!" The
printers probably echoed the words with
earnestness, for the great author wrote a
diabolical scrawl. Some Thanksgivings have
been like the great author's. We have
thanked Heaven that the work of a year
-was done; that we still lived, and had a
little hope left in the larder. But there is
no reason for halfheartedness in our thanks
giving to-day. There have been black
pages in the book we now close. Not yet
Las the shadow of the dread calamity at
Johnstown altogether passed away. As a
nation, as parts of a great community, and
as individuals we have had our afflictions
as well as our joys. But who shall weigh
the one with the other and say that the bless
ings do not tip the beam?
The Dispatch hopes that everyone of
its readers will have the cut of the turkey
bis or her heart desires; that gaunt indiges
tion will hold aloof, and that Pittsburg will
continue her unrivaled march in prosperity
and peace for years and years to come.
THE FUNDAMENTAL LAW.
The decision of the Illinois Supreme
P! Court, in the case of the Chicago Gas Trust,
adds another to the frequent judicial dec
larations against the legality of corpora
tions or combinations devised to engross or
monopolize any branch of business. In this
case the Gas Trust was a regularly incorpo
rated concern which served the usual pur
pose of combining all the gas companies
under a single control.
With regard to such a combination it is
nothing new, but it is none the less refresh
ing, to read the assertions or the court that a
corporation organized for such a purpose
"was. not organized for a lawful purpose,
and all acts done by it toward the accom
plishment of such object are illegal and
void. Whatever tends to prevent competi
tion between those engaged in a public em
ployment or business, impressed with a pub
lic character, is opposed to public policy
and therefore unlawful. Whatever tends to
create a monopoly is unlawful, being con
Atrary to public policy."
This is the law, as it has formed the foun
dation of our Government for generations.
It is to be hoped that the men who manage
our corporations will in time learn their
duty to respect the law.
OVERHEAD WIBES MUST GO.
Cleveland has become excited by the
demonstration on ber streets that the over-
. bead electric wire can kill a horse. Our
neighboring city is possessed of several elec
trical experts who are able to demonstrate
to their own satisfaction that the wires are
'perleetly safe; but somehow the Cleveland
people tail to be satisfied by this demonstra
tion, and are proceeding to deal with the mat
ter by the very summary method of chop
ping down the poles and wires. A rather
singular feature of this radical reform is that
the telephone poles and wires which are
harmless unless charged with the strong
currents by the electric light or electric
railway wires, are suffering the most; while
the responsibility really lies with the over
head electric railway wires. Still the fact

lias good reasons for selling, which he will
readily state to intending purchasers. The
throne is in good repair, and an energetic
man will find no difficulty in collecting the
revenues. The native population is being
rapidly civilized out of existence. The na
tives are well educated, and imported dis
eases may be relied upon to keep them in
check. On the other hand, tbe mixed races,
compounded of Chinese, Europeans and
Hawaiians, are rapidly increasing, and
'afford support to several newspapers and
other luxuries, without which an American
would be ill content to occupy even a
throne. JLife in Hawaii is quiet as a rule;
the local volcahos affording the principal
diversion. The language is peculiarly at
tractive to stump speakers, as it abounds in
Towels, and the fact that it contains no verb
whatever to express either being, existence,
possession or duty, ought not to prove em
barrassing to intending purchasers of a
throne, as a King need not acknowledge the
existence of anybody but himself, has
possession of all he needs, and knows no
, duty but that of his subjects to pay taxes.-

power of a patriotic American to break the
price of titles indefinitely and bring them
within the reach of the humblest citizen.
Europe will no longer be able to charge our
American heiresses and their parents lamine

an able Yankee sits upon the Hawaiian

AN H0N0E WELL DESERVED.
Among the many festivities of the day,
there will be none of truer significance or
representing more worthy sentiments than
the dedication of the monument -which has
been erected by the united efforts of the
labor organizations of the .city, to the
memory of Thomas A. Armstrong.
Indeed the whole community might be
included in the demonstration, in the sense
that every true American is a workingman.
While Mr. Armstrong's journalistic easier
was marked by his true and intelligent
advocacy of labor interests, he was a labor
advocate on the broad ground that the
interests of the working people are the
interests oi the whole people. His unswerv
ing work for the advancement of organ
ized labor was never marred by appeals to
special and selfish interests. His conserv
atism, and his intelligent counsels for
moderation enhanced his value as a wise
counsellor and far-sighted advocate of the
Honors to the memory of such a man are
honorable no less to the laboring masses by
whom they are paid. The workers of Pitts
burg prove to-day that they are not un
grateful to the memory of their steadfast
advocate and friend.
TEE BANE PE0SECUTI0NS.
That the policy of silence and the delay in
making an official statement does not suit
the depositors of the Lawrence Bank maybe
inferred from the prosecutions begun yester
day against the President and Cashier. It
is not extraordinary that the people who
had their money in the institution should be
anxious to know as soon as possible how
much they might expect from it. That was
a very reasonable feeling. Now, if delay
was inevitable in preparing the statement,
would it have been too much to make a
formal announcement giving the reasons
and telling when the desired information
would be forthcoming?
Taking the sequence of events up to date
it is clear that the business has been handled
with as little success and tact since the sus
pension as before. What must particularly
impress this view upon the public is the re
iterated unofficial assurances from directors
and other officers of the bank and parties in
interest that .dollar for dollar, or some
thing like it, will be paid the depositors.
How gratifying even a general averment of
this would have been if issued over the sig
nature of the Board of Directors. Yet, if
the assurance really exists that the situation
is no worse, it would have required but a
few words officially from the bank directors
and officers to allay the suspense and grow
ing irritation of depositors nntil a specific
statement could be made.
Provided the bank's affairs are in as good
shape as has been constantly claimed, it can
only be said that the manner ot suspension
and the incidents since have been singularly
distinguished by want ot tact and foresight.
The depositors started in with the kindliest
and most generous expressions of continued
confidence, even in the face ot the suspen
sion. That some of them are pretty mad
now, and with reason, is sufficiently evi
denced in the litigation which is already
started, not to speak of what is threatened.
What the outcome will be is not clear, bnt
it is apparent that the courts are about to
have their innings.
THEORY AHD PRACTICE,
The report comes from Brazil that the
leaders of the new Republic have announced
their intention of forming the Government
on the model of the United States. There
could hardly be a better pattern lor a new
Republic to organize itself by. The prin
ciple of home rule for the different States,
with specific powers granted to the General
Government and the fundamental rule that
all the powers of government must be exer
cised for the benefit of the whole people and
by their consent, furnish the best foundation
for republican government
It may certainly be hoped that the Bra
zilians wili adopt this model for their new
Government and adhere to it faithfully. It
is also to be hoped that tbey will profit by
the example of the United States in avoid
ing the mistake of adopting the principles
of our Constitution in the abstract, and
nullifying some of the most im
portant in actual practice. For in
stance, having adopted a Constitution
which makes it the duty of the representa
tive bodies to consider and pass legislation
and of the executive to appoint officers to
carry out the laws, it is to be hoped that
Brazil will not permit a system of politics
to crow up in which the legislators claim
the executive power of appointment and
neglect their legislative duties in order to
attend to it Or having lounded their Gov
ernment on the principle that all its powers
must be exerted for the benefit, of the peo
ple, the Brazilians should avoid the creation
by legislative powers of corporate powers
which possess special privileges in the ac
quisition of wealth, and concentrate great
fortunes in the hands of a few at the cost of
These are a few of the many examples
which show the necessity of adhering to the
principles of the Constitution in practice as
well as in theory. Since we learn that other
countries are looking to us as a model, might
it not be well for the people of the United
States to insist on the faithful observance of
the theory of the Constitution in our actual
MILD OB OPEN WOTTEE!
Signs as to the kind of winter we are
going to have are numerous. Each person
who produces a sign it certain of its relia
bility; but unfortunately the settlement of
the question is postponed by a total lack of'
agreement among the signs. JThe goose
bone and corn husk signs gave their testi
mony the other day, and agreed very de
cidedly that the -winter was going to be
more open and warmer than the last mild
and muddy season. This was satisfactory
to people who wish to economize on their
coal andas bills. But down in Connecti
cut tbey have a hermit -who foretells tbe
winter temperature by the date on which
he dons shoes. Also the eels coming up the

cold snaps and blizzards for December, we
may take the matter as settled. It is safe

The use of militia in guarding the ruins

The remark is made concerning the late
George H. Pendleton by the New York Mbunet
lie was too good for the Democratic party."
There may be a good deal of truth in this, but
it is not remembered that the. Tribune made any
such admission while Mr. Pendleton was en
gaged in active leadership of the Democracy.
The inability of the political organ to recog

declares that "if I could hare the last vote nec

commendable platform; nevertheless, it is
liable to provoke the old and doubting inquiry:
"You say you would not; but wouldn't you?"

The character of Othello is probably the
most suited to Salvini in his repertoire. In it
the fiery spirit of the actor is most often in
harmony with tbe majestic conception of
Bhakespeare. He played Othello last night be
fore a cultured audience, and succeeded in cre
ating a very strong impression. Whether this
impression was agreeable or the reverse de
pended entirely upon the benolder's interpreta
tion of Shakespeare. Those who take Othello
to have been a passionate man to brutality it
self, to have been a coarse soldier of fortune
and nothing more could not but admire Salvi
a's rendering of the character. But all do not
read "Othello" thus. There Is no doubt, how
ever, but that Salvini was Immensely powerful
In the most violent passages of the
play, and the horror of the murder of
JJewfmono was never brought out with greater
vividness than by Salvini's remarkable
genius. In the softer passages, in lord's
dalliance and pathos, Salvini was not so sat
isfying. Miss Brookyn was lor the most part
a very satisfactory Dademona, and, of course,
the -Emilia of Mrs. D. P. Bowers was excel

scenery was very good, indeed.

audience were, as usual, unexceptional.
Six ushers, Messrs. Denniston Lyon, James
Wood. W. W. Lawrence, McClurg Hays, Otis
Childs and Will Patton, announced the ap
proach of the bridal party, consisting of two
little misses, Rosalind Smith and Louise Wood,
nieces of the bride, dressed in dainty white
mull frocks, carrying pink roses, and the bride
leaning upon me arm OI ner lamer. At me
foot of tbe chancel the groom and his best man,
Mr. Hart McKee, were awaiting them, and the
betrothal was read by Rev. Dr. Hodges, rector
of tbe church. Proceeding to tbe altar ratlins:,
tbe ceremony was concluded by Bishop White
head. The bride was charming in a decollete gown
of white satin brocade, gracefully draped and
trimmed with point lace. Orange blossoms
were worn, and an exquisite veil of white silk
tulle, with a bouquet of orchids and lilies of
the valley, completed the bewitching toilet.
The decorations of tbe chnrcb were all pink
and white roses, and the same effect was car
ried out in the palatial residence of the bride's
parents, where a reception was tendered the
guests Immediately after the church Services.
A novelty in the way of decorating was shown
therein handsome four-leaf clovers, made of
the fragrant roses In the prevailing colors.
The four-leaf clover, bv tbe way, is the
emblem of this wedding. The groom when he

was no attempt made at set decoration, but

was very caret uTot 'hem all, and trained them
up in the sylvan wa.rs- tbey should go. The
beauty of the family, however, was tbe one
whoso biography is no-r being impaled, by im
perishable type. It dereloped into a magnifi
cent bird, in fact, was . real "hummer" (which
is what gentlemen (T) call a young lady who is
stylish, pretty and artractive) and in walking
around the barnyard it cultivated tbe prom
enade step and clucked mellifluously and
looked askance at bfids of humbler origin.
A Barnyard Belle.
The beauty of this fotfl became so pro
nounced that not only did the poultfyman
make covetous remarks about it and its price
per pound, and give it an extra bandtul of corn,
but all the gobblers in the yard vied with each
other In paying homage to the young queen
that lorded it over them in such a high and
mighty fashion. In her queendom she .dis
played rare tact and wonderful judgment for
one so young and tender, and ruled entirely by
the charms of bropze and feathers. Many and
many were.the suitors for her claw and favor,
but being a young turkey of pronounced ideas
she declined them all. preferring to complete
her education and look around ner awhile be
fore taking the a.ll.imnnrbint Ktnn-
Just in the height of youthfnl exuberance,
when she had reached the age of 4 months, she
heard tbe poultryman say to a friend who bad
been admiring her, "She's bespoke for Me
Smitherse's table on Thanksgiving." poor
turkey! Little did she realize that to be "be
spoke" often means to have your head cut off,
and it surely meant that in her case. Bnt per
fectly unconscious of the dire fate in store for
her she roamed arnund with her very latest
feathers on, and enjoyed the sensation she
created among tbe gobblers and less favored
turkeys. Of course she bad a great many un
pleasant things to contend with in the barn
yard. Often when somelovesickgohblerwould
present her with an especially fine fat worm, a
number of her younger sisters and brothers and
aunts and uncles and cousins would clamor for
a Small Portion of it and aairintfmi nnn hnlHnr
than the rest would deftly appropriate the en
tire worm, but on the whole the youthfnl
turkey was quite happy and contented until
another month bad passed away while the
toothsome fat was gathering upon her pretty
Tne Tale of Woe,
Then, in company with a large number of
promiscuous turkeys, some of them ot ques
tionable age, she was deprived of her liberty
cooped In fact. To one long accustomed to un
trammeled freedom, worms galore and the
homage of the free, this was a severe blow, and
the added suspense was terrible as to what the
ultimate outcome would be.
In the base prosecution of the iniquitous de
signs of the man whose atrocious grammar bad
jarred upon every well-regulated turkey's ear,
these pent-up fowls, and the queenly one
among them, were given everything to eat that
the most epicurean of tbe race could express a
desire for. Try as she might to look heavy
hearted and pensive, this fair bird grew sleek:
and fat, and continued to grow in such a man
ner that the oraer would rub his bands with
glee as each fresh beauty was developed.
Crossing the Styx Drumsticks.
In this fashion the time rolled along. The
R. months came and tbe oysters who were to
decorate the internal economy of the birds of
thanks, laughed with glee and showed their
pearly teeth, and the unsuspecting birds as
sisted the fell designs of their captor by inno
cently becoming riotously corpulent. Tbs
queen of the tribe had become acclimated to
coop-life and used to the change in ber mode of
life, when alast on last Tuesday evening the
final farewell to the world she did say, and In

j-iiiageu were an its pretty learners ana super
fluous hair, and in the latter operation it was
not given the benefit of modern Improvement,
such as the electrical needle, but the old bar
baric practice of singeing was resorted to. Then
it was given aTurk-ish bath and placed rudely
in tbe ice chest, with a multitude of others.
Later on in tbe mgbt they were all crated to
gether, and started on their journey' to Pitts
burg, the choice one having been previously
tagged with the name of the man whose palate
it was to delight on Thursday.
What more ignoble end could be imagined!
In tbe heyday of youth to be stricken to gratify
the selfish appetites of the race man. If Hux
ley's theory that the animal and ornithological
kingdoms have souls' be correct, it would be
easy to imagine that when the victim of Mo
generous an indulgence in turkey rolled fret
fully upon bis pillow, the wild flapping ot tur
key wings and the angry gobble of tbe termin
ated turkeys were the disturbing influences
which interfered with the customary visit of
the drowsy god, or the fond embrace of Mor

But the above is a digression. Renewing the
biography now bet ome an obituary In com
pany with turkeys after they were impacted
the poultry dealer gazed with envy and rapture
upon tbe one designed to graceUhe table of the
prominent politician, and not being quite vig
orous enough in commanding Satan to get be
hind him, yielded to temptation, and, as some
times bapoens in novels, in the case of infants,
put tbe one article at dress, namely, the tag.
that tbe turkey boasted on to a far less pre
possessing specimen, and placed tbe pretty,
plump, golden-skin ed bird out ot sight. Imi
tating the famous bum-boat woman, he mixed
those turkeys up.
Ere long the gentleman having been instruct
ed by his country friend to call at the dealer's
and receive, with bis compliments, the finest
turkey grown on. his place during the season,
meandered up to claim his property.
He was given the spurious bird with many
smiles and congratulations, and ho tried to
think as be surveyed its rather cadaverous pro
portions that he was a lucky man, but he was
not entirely successful.
However, he sent a pretty telegram thanking
his friends, and bad the turkey transferred to
his home, where he informed his wife that;
while "it wasn't much as regards beautr. it was
good eating, because his old friend said it was
the finest one be had raised this year."
With many misgivings did tbe good wife look
at the turkey, but accepting her husband's
hopeful view, she bad it placed in tbe ice chest,
and this morning it will receive tbe finest kind
of dressing, and at 2 o'clock, done to a brown,
will be enjoyed (with the aid of imagination),
if this sketch does not attract the eye of the
grossly deceived man. In case it does, coffee
and pistols for two will doubtless settte the
score. What has become of the promising
young fowl no one but the poultry dealer
knows, and he won't tell But the injured
friend has a clear case of Xalse pretenses

out any manner of doubt, eorced himself to
