HUMPHRIES' STIEBtKG ELOQUENCE J
Ziittle more than two years after his death
a monument to the memory of Thomas A.
' . Armstrong was yesterday unveiled in the
Allegheny Parks. The occasion was one of
more than passing interest for it recorded
the first time in history in which a memorial
was erected in honor of a man, whose chief
ambition in life was to devote it to in
dustrial organization. Statues hare been
erected in memory of soldiers .and states
men, men famed in philosophy and the arts
and to philanthropists, but the Armstrong
monument stands as the first, and a lasting
recognition of an epoch, which marks the
development of the wage earners of this
Prom an early hour in the morning dele
gates of workers from adjoining towns com
menced to pour into the city. These were
not as strong or so numerous as they would
have-been had the indications for the day
been more propitious, but toward 11 o'clock
the six divisions to participate in the parade
had formed as arranged, and about 6,500
men were awaiting the word to march. The
day Tas as unfavorable as possible, except
that the excessive dampness under foot was
not supplemented by a downpour from over
head. A. keen, chilly wind swept round
the corners and sought out the unfortunates
who had left their overcoats indoors, and
every now and again a break would be made
tor the saloons for a little interior comfort.
These did a rushing business during the
early hours and made not a little money out
ot the waiting throng. Loud complaints
were heard at Smithfield and 'Water streets
at the greed of the bartenders at a bar who
charged 25 cents a drink for liquor and the
same price for beer. The management
probably desired to make as much profit as
possible out of the occasion.
THE AMALGAMATED OJT TOP.
The palm for general appearance and
strong turn out must be awarded to the
Amalgamated Association of Iron and Steel
'Workers, and chief among them mftst be
rioted the "Wayne Lodge, numbering 300
men, who were conspicuons by their fine
bearing, bine soft hats, rosettes and canes.
Other organizations which presented a good
showing were toe Electricians.tbe Glasswork
ert and the Typographical Union. No com
parisons, however, of one organization with
another is intended, and it must be said that
the parade of wage earners, in bearing, num
bers, physique and intelligent appearance,
was one such as Pittsburg should feel justly
proud of. Owing to the "bleakness of the
day the crowd of sightseers was not so large
as usual, but a goodly nnmber of interested
spectators lined the sidewalks and shivered
in the chill air during the 50 minutes that it
took the procession to paEs. "Very little
decorating was attempted anywhere along
the line of march, the only Fifth avenue
establishments which honored the occasion
by hanging out flags being The
Dispatch, the Labor Tribune, the
Commoner and Glass Worker, the
Glait Budget, and Kauffmans".

FOLLOWED THE BOUTS.
The route ot the procession was from
Smithfield street to Second avenue to
Grant street to Third avenue to Boss street
to Fifth avenue to Market street to Sixth
avenue to bridge to Federal street, Alle
gheny, to North avenue to Irwin avenue to
"Western avenue to Ohio street to the monu
ment. It was strictly adhered to. That the
Knights of Labor didn't make a better
showing was owing to the fact that many of
their locals were unable to turn out, as for
instance, the street car men, mixers and
teasers, and others, and there, were many
beside who declined to take any part in the
proceedings. The strong contingents that
were expected from the coke and mining
regions did not sbow up.
SIGHTSEEKS OX DECK.
There were the usual incidents peculiar
to the assemblage of an aggregation of
humanity. The man who would push his
way through the crowd with cane or um
brella sticking out from under his arm was
there; there was the farmer, who stalked
along as if he were the sole oocupier of the
pavement, and pretty fresh young faces
from the country were not wanting to light
up the throng. The patrol wagon had a
field day of it, and gathered in not a few too
bibulous holiday makers. Taking the day
as an occasion for pleasure and recreation,
and making allowance for the due relaxa
tion necessary, it must be said that it passed
over very quietly and very much to the
credit of the people.
An Eloquent Panegyric Upon the Departed
Labor Leader The Handsome Monu
In the park the wind was keen and cold,
and chilled to the bone. Scattered flakes of
snow whirled through the naked trees. The
earth was wet and added to the discomfort
of the thousands of people. Many a severe
cold will date from the unveiling exercises
The speakers and several dignitaries oc
cupied a temporary platform facing the
monument, and between it and Ohio street.
It was colder there than anywhere else. The
wind swept across that high platform with
a malicious velocity. Some of the elderly
ladies who sat there would have been? petri
fied by the cold had not the ushers procured
some heavy blankets and half covered them
with the generous protection. Nobody
dared to remove his hat during the most
solemn part of the service, and even the
xiev. isaviaj ones prayea witunisnat on.
For a space 100 feet wide all around the
monument the police kept the people back.
There, alter their arrival, the bands
were assembled, and played sweet
music. Outside of that magic circle the
people stood as patiently as they could, and
by their numbers and the densityof their
crowding, tried to keep warm. Over the
great shivering crowd flapped the big flag
on the park flag staff, cracking and snapping
in the gale as if it were angry because it
had only 38 stars in its field. Down below,
where smaller, but brighter, flags waved
over the many companies moving this wav
and that, nearly everyone of the standard's
proudly displayed 42 stars in its field of
THE LOSO C0LTTM2T AEEITES.
It was about 12:45 o'clock when the head
of the long procession reached the park, and
it was three-quarters ot an hour before the
last body arrived. The vicinity of the
monument was already surrounded by a
great crowd of men, women and children.
The bands were conducted one by one into
tne open space reserved lor them, while the
members of the many organizations either
mingled with the shivering crowd or hurried
away for their homes and their Thanksgiv
Persons holding special invitations were
admitted to the platform. A number of
ladies and gentlemen connected with the
Armstrong family, among them the mother,
brother and sisters of Thomas A. Arm
strong, occupied front seats. Others present
Judge Collier, Judge Slagle. Jndge Etowe,
Colonel Robert Monroe, John F. Steele, John

Workers' Union, and others.
Order was maintained in the great crowd
by a force of Allegheny police under the
direction of Chief Kirschler and Cautain
"Wilson. The tall monument was wrapped
with white canvas, which was flapped so
fiercelv by the wind that it threatened to
fall off before the opportune moment
THE EXERCISES BEGUN.
A few minutes before 2 o'clock Dr. D. B.
Sturgeon, chairman of the executive com
mittee of the Thomas A. Armstrong Monu
mental Association, went to the front of the
platform, and after asking to be excused for
keeping his silk hat on, said: "The vast
multitude assembled here on this very in
clement day, to dedicate to the memory of a
highly illustrious brother a monumental
likeness in endurable rock, is a most pro
nounced and unanswerable refutation ol the
declaration that the industrial classes are
invariably ungrateful to whose who hon
estly and efficiently labor for the ameliora
tion and the betterment of their conditions
in life." Dr. Sturgeon then announced
that the band would play Mr. Armstrong's
favorite hymn, "Nearer, my God, to Thee."
The hymn was played in grand and sweet
style by over 100 pieces, under the direction
of Prof. Charles "W. Gaston, of the Grand
Alter the music, prayer was offered by
Bev. David Jones, of the First Methodist
Protestant church. The band followed this
by a medley ot religious melodies, "ock of
Ages," "I love to tell the story," etc
THE MONUMENT COMMITTEE.
Dr. Sturgeon then read an account of the
work of the monumental association. He
On the first day of October, 1SS7, in the incep
tion of tbe forty-eighth year of bis life. In tbe
early zenith of his manhood, in tbe midst ot a
most noble life work, death quietly summoned
him to tbe realms ot everlasting peace. His
sudden and unexpected death was deeply felt
and sadly mourned by his legions of friends
who loved him dearly and respected blm most
proloundly for his many noble qualities of bead
and heart His funeral was largely attended by
his friends, and it was there, in tbe mellow
gronna oi gnei and sorrow, appeared a spon
taneous outgrowth of a unanimous sentiment
that duty to the distinguished dead brother de
manded that a suitable monument shonld be
erected and dedicated to his memory.
Actuated by common consent hi the dis
charge of a sacred duty, a large meeting con
vened in the rooms of tbe Amalgamated Asso
ciation of Iron and Steel Workers, on the even
ing of tbe 11th day of October, 18S7,which re
sulted In tbe organization of the Thomas A.

After 15 months of unremitting efforts, the
Executive Committee at a meeting held Jan
uary 8, 18S9, decided to solicit designs for a
suitable monument to cost $3,500. Messrs.
Martin, Moore and Shields were appointed a
sub-committee to attend to this part of the
work and report in due. time. A sub-committee
to procure a proper site on which to erect
a monument was also appointed, consisting of
Messrs. Stnrgeon, Kelly and Ritcnonr. These
sub-committees reported at subsequent meet
ings of the Executive Board and the contract
to erect the monument was awarded to A. E.
Windsor 4 Co., of Allegheny. Tbe article of
agreement with the said company stipulated
that tho work shonld be done by union men
in a union yard. This beautiful location on
which the completed structure now stands
was chosen by the Committee on Site, and
kindly donated by the Park Commissioners of
THE ORATOE OP THE DAT.
Secretary "William Martin announced the
oratoi of the day, Miles S. Humphries,
manager of the Oliver Iron and Steel Com-
Eany. That gentleman was applauded as
e stepped forward. He delivered his ad
dress in a good, clear voice. He had com
mitted it thoroughly, and its delivery was
listened to with close attention. '
He spoke first of the great improvements
of the passing century, and said:
The struggle between oppression and liberty,
inequality; and justice, slavery and freedom,
involving all within the domain of right and
wrong, as it relates to the welfare of mankind,
has been vigorous and earnest. In these varied
struggles and advancements, men have become
renowned for their zeal, skill and scientific at
tainments, and have left tbe results of their
life work as a valued legacy to their country.
Tney were men ot courage as leaders, men of
thought and action, grouping their convictions
into uselul systems, plans and procedures, and
tbus their lives became beacon lights to suc
ceeding generations. In honor of their mem
ory the land is studded with columns of mar
ble and of granite, denoting to .the wayfaring
that through the efforts of oneths realms of the
starry heavens have been unfolded to tbe
knowledge and gaze of mankind, or again, that
the earth with its manifold treasures bad
been explored, and their great usefulness
made snbservient to the will of man, or he may
have been a profound exponent of political
economy and its kindred sciences, or a great
and mighty warrior, or still, perchance, he had
with great clearness made plain the teachings
of Holy Writ, and in a warm spirit of eager
ness, with commanding eloquence, had led the
inquiring and penitent throngh paths militant
to a haven of triumph. But Thomas A. Arm
strong, A CHILD UNTEILS THE STATUE.
At this name the speaker paused, while
he pointed to the statue. Little Thomas
Armstrong Highberger, sitting on his grand
mother's knee, pulled the cord which re
leased the drapery around the statue and
the canvas slowly fell away, revealing the
splendid figure standing ont clear and clean
against the cold gray sky. The. speaker
whose name we desire to perpetuate, was of
a different type save that he braved the
dangers of war for his country and we gather
to-day, in a great multitude, with warm hearts,
and tenderly cherished memories, to do him
honor In the dedication of this monument. He
left no record of scientific attainments or ex
plorations, no unparalleled construction of
mechanism, no charitable bequests distributing
enormously accumulated weaitu, duc ne leit
tbe record of a pure and upright life, dnring
which he mingled with his kind and by wise
counsels and honest efforts endeavored to lead
them to a plane where justice and equality
would abound; and In this great life-work, be
combated every unwarranted obstruction,
nntil he became known throughout the land as
tbe inscription so aptly indicates, "The Advo
cate of the Rights of Labor." These were
rights that involved the reformation of evils
that were widespread, deep rooted and of long
continuance, evils that were bltelitlng and op
pressive to the bnman race. ' Rights that in
their very nature would transform the social
edifice from prison house of groaning servi
tude indigence and degradatlon,to a condition
of manly and brotherly dependence, and then
jointly to apply remedies that would take away
the ulcers taat were eating tbe very vitals of
humanity. Rights that demanded that the fogs
of prejudice, the clouds of oppression should
be removed and tbe light of truth and immortal
justice dawn upon all people straggling to
emancipate themselves from a groveling con
dition Imposed by arbitrary mammon.
OPINIONS ON LABOE'S MISSION.
Mr. Armstrong's early life and service in
the army were eloquently described, and his
work after the war, in building up trade
unions, was then gone into at some length.
Mr. Humphries then said:
Tbe great economic function of union was not
merely to resist the encroachments from with
out; but to protect labor from undue aggres
sions from within. He would have organization
give the workman a just sense of his power, in
still Into his mind the principle of manhood and
independence, and learn him to feel as a citizen,
and not cringing as tbe slave.
He would have It teach him the value of
thrift and prudence, by compelling him. if need
be, to save, and teach him the worth of sobriety
by showing him the value of his weekly earn
ings. He loved peace and good fellowship, and
tbus was opposed to conflicts between employer
and employed, when possible to avoid them; yet
at times there seemed to be no escape, and in
such cases he affirmed that the pecuniary
losses sustained by tbe workmen were the pre
ventative of a still greater, as it kept them from
sinking irom aeptns to lower aeptns, and tbere
to remain; that there were times when strikes
became, as it were, capital sunk to produce re
munerative wages, just as capital is oftentimes
sunk to produce remunerative profits; and while
he deplored these struggles, he cherished the
belief that tbey might be the means. In part at
least, or eventually leaaingmen to tne adoption
of a system of industrial partnership.
If he warred against one evil more than
another it was against tbe so-called "Truck
System," and to his persistent efforts can the
gradual decline of that nefarious system in our
State be largely attributed. Labor faithfully
performed, in bis estimation, was entitled to
receive its earnings in money at the earliest
practical period, in order that its wants might
be supplied npon the most advantageous terms.
To be independent of creditors is the first con
dition of self respect, and as cash is worth more
than thee highest credit, he plead that labor
should receive frequent and prompt payments,
for it would not only promote good morals, but
would Instill a spirit of manliness which is
always perceptible in the workman who is free
AIT AMEEICAir AI.-WAYS,
He was an outspoken advocate ot the policy
ot preserving the American markets for Amer
ican producers. That foreign commodities
.shonld be laid down at the very doors of our
establishments to the detriment of the Amer
ican workman, he entered a solemn protest,
while he maintained that tbe money that went
from bre to pay tbe labor that created them
abroad was a direct robbery of tbe American
workman, inasmuch as the commodities conld
be manufactured here, and the money earned
as wages flow into the pockets of the home me
chanic. After another selection by the band the
benediction was pronounced by Bev. W. B.
CowJ, of the First Methodist Protestant
Churph of Allegheny, and the services were
at an end. xThe great crowd slowly dis
persed. The solemnity and significance of
the event seemed to impress all deeply.

ILLNESS WBECES BEE MIND AND BODX
On one of the cots in. the female ward of
St. Francis' Hospital last night lay a
woman who was laboriously living through
the last throes of a dying delirium. Her
face was pale, and in the eyes there was that
glassy look which precedes the last pulsa
tion of the heart. The attendants tripped
about noiselessly, and the physicians in at
tendance stated to a number of friends that
the woman would not live until morning.
The lady has a strange history, and the
good Sisters in charge of the hospital are
trying to solve it. She was admitted to the
institution on the 13th inst, having been
sent there by Alderman Gassidy, of the First
ward, in whose house she. has been living
for the past four or six years. She was in
sane at tbe time, and had been out of her
mind for several weeks prior to her removal.
For some time previous to this she had been
affected with heart trouble, which made her
insane. She became so violent that she
could no longer be kept within bounds, and
the 'Squire thought it best to place her in
the hospital. i
The young woman's name iss Hibbard,
and she is the wife of George Hibbard. who
was manager at Newell's about seven years
ago. She was the daughter of Captain De
Beeves, a former well known and wealthy
oil operator. The latter was a Spaniard,
and came from Cuba to this country about
the beginning of the war. He served until
he was honorably discharged, and about the
close of the war went to the oil country. He
located near Oil City, and then went to
Buffalo, where he lived in luxurious style.
He had but one daughter, to whom he left a,
good fortune, supposed to be in the neigh
borhood of $50,000, at his death. His wife
died shortly alter the birth of the daughter,
and the latter was christened Maud.
A PRACTICAL CAPTAIN.
Captain DeBeeves, thinking that some
day his money might take flight and leave
himself and daughter penniless, determined
to give the latter the means of earning a
livelihood. He was an expert cook him
self, and thought this would be a good thing
for his daughter to learn. He accordingly
sent her to the best French cooking school
in the world, where she learned the art of
Sometime' afterward her father died and
left her his monev. She became acquainted
with George Hibbard in this city and mar
ried him. They had several children, all of
whomj with tbe exception of one, died. The
couple lived on Penn avenue, near Seventh
street, and apparently the course of love
ran smooth. This continued forabont eight
years, when the neighbors were startled
with the intelligence that HibbardJiad de
serted bis wife and abducted bis t-y ear-old
boy. The latter occurred on Sunday even
ing. Mr. Hibbard had asked his wife at
tbe supper table to dress the child and he
would take it out for a walk. Mrs.
Hibbard did as she was directed
and her husband left the house. They did
not return at the usual hour, and the wife
grew alarmed. No thought of herhnsband
deserting her had entered her mind, and it
was only by accident that .she learned the
truth. Hibbard had sent a picture of his
wife to his parents in New York, stating
that he would bring her to see them in a
few months. He afterward sent a letter
stating that a mistake had been made, and
the picture was that of his wife's cousin,
and asked for its return. He then sent a
picture of a woman named Simpson, alleg
ing it was that ot his wife. "When the first
picture was returned it fell into the,hands of
Mrs. Hibbard, who was somewhat surprised.
at ner nusoana s parents sending it back.
She said nothing, however, but afterward
heard the reason.
ALMOST BEOKE HEK 1IEAET.

To Reform Florcneo Donelson and the
Toaogalovm Positive Girl.
A number of the ladies of the W. C. T. TJ.,
with Mrs. Jones prominent among them, are
interesting themselves in the cases of tbe
Samuels girl from Youngstown, whose time
in jail will shortly expire, and whose able
exercise of mendacity 'kept tbe police offi
cials busy for a week in unravaling her
stories. The case of Florence Donelson
who, with Laura Bailey, was tried in con
nection with the Bobbs case, is also exciting
the ladies' interest They hope before sen
tence day to persuade the Judge that a sus
pended sentence would give the latter
Woman a chance to reform, and they had
hopes that they wonld be successful in jse
curing so desirable an end.
For, the Samuels girl they say they are
ready to supply a home and honest occupa
tion, and they think she shows a sincere de
sire to reform, and show some return for the
work in which these good women are so ac
The police officials are willine to pita

ME. G0UELEI GETTING WELL.
He Expects to be Oat of Work Next Mon
dayHe States- He 1st In tbe Mayoralty
Fleht to Star.
So much has been said recently of the con
dition, both of Mr. Gourley's health and his
chances for the Mayoralty, that a call was
made on him at his residence yesterday to
get direct information on both subjects.
Mr. Gourley was quite cheerful, and said he
was glad to say tho accounts of his accident
had been exaggerated, for although obliged
to use cratches he expects to ba at his place
of business by Monday or Tuesday at the
latest. He says that the injury sustained
was nothing more' than the severe wrench
ing of some of the ligaments of his telt leg,
and. although Painfnl. wainotvervserlon.
He was afraid he would have to depend
npon crutches for some weeks at least.
"As for the Mayoralty question," he
said, "you cannot be too emphatic in saying
that I have neither contemplated with
drawal, nor have I been approached upon
the subject by anyone, least of all, by Mr.
Warmcastle. He called upon me the day
after tbe accident, and assured me of his
hearty support, both for nomination and
election, and also stated he wpnld be one of
my delegates. This certainly would not be
tbe language of a rival for nomination. No.
the question of withdrawal was not mooted,
nor will it be. I am in the fight to stay and
propose to remain so, and wish none of my
friends to be misled by the conflicting re
ports now current."
John J. Davis, Assistant City Controller,
whose name has been mentioned in connec
tion with the candidacy, was seen yesterday,
and said: "Yes, when the talk about a
change in the candidacy was first broached,
I was approached by several people, and
asked to be on' the ticket, bnt I told tbem,
as I tell yon. that I would not. I consider
it a very unwise policy, as Abraham Lin
coln said, to swop horses when crossing a
stream, and I am decidedly for the party
candidate, Henry I. Gourley. This is, I
understand, the choice of the party, and I
am for him first, last and all the time."
A SINGER SLIGHTED.
The Levy Concern to Develop Music Not
Upon the Oltla.
The Slay'ton Lyceum Bureau, which is
engineering the Levy Concert Company
around the country, has substituted Miss
Louise Barry, a Chicago contralto, for Bosa
Linde (Mrs. Bosa Schaarschmidt), of this
city, on account of the jealousy of M'sieur
Jules Levy, the great cornetist As Bosa
Linde was billed here and featured as the
attraction of Saturday's two concerts, the
substitution gives great offense to Pitts
burgers who have an interest in the Pitts
Tbe Slayton Burean sent letters and tele
grams here of a somewhat evasive character
and finally admitted tbe substitution, but
advised the Pittsburg impressario to main
tain silence upon the matter. The Pittsburg
manager felt that the truth should be made
public, and also that the only way to pre
serve good faith with those who had pur
chased tickets was to insist on Miss Linde's
appearance here. To this proposition the er
ratic hornblower, whose name heads the
company, entered an emphatic demurrer. So
the matter stands in the following way:
Miss Linde has been telegraphed to and will
try to reach here from New York in time to
appear at the matinee, but certainly at
night If M'sieur Levy will not allot? her
to have her accustomed place on the pro
gramme she will sing at the end of the same.
That is the determination of the local mana
ger. Should M'sieur Levy attempt an overt
objection there will be some fun: At any
rate, no confidences are violated in assuring
the public that there is musie ahead.
Mr. Debe Says tbe Italian Congregation
Can tar lie Bills.
Peter Debe, a trustee of the Italian
church, denies most emphatically that there
are any financial troubles for the congrega
tion to contend with. He stated that the
Italian people of the city and surrounding
country are able to-pay the first installment
of 59,000 on April 1, when they take posses
sion of Grace Church, Grant street He is
confident also that the balance of (3,600 can
easily be raised.
Mr. Debe denies, too, that they are influ
enced by the priests, and, though he admits
his peonle are poor, still their number is
large, and no trouble Is anticipated.

THE SAME OLD ST0KY.
A Girl Ells Her Sweetheart While
Playing With a Pistol.
SHE IS ALMOST CRAZED BY GRIEF.
The Victim fiemarked the Pistol Nearly
Caused Bis Death Before.
THIS TIME THE PISTOL SHOT CAMS
The supposed suicide of Charles J. "Waite
at West Elizabeth, reported in Wednes
day morning's Dispatch, contains some
far more tragic elements than was at first
supposed The Coroner's investigation re
veals the fact that Waite, who' was only 24
years of age, and a fireman on the Mononga
hela division of the Pennsylvania Bailroad,
instead of shooting himself, was killed with
his own revolver- in the hand of Hiss
Josephine Welsh, a young lady to whom he
was engaged to be married, and at whose
mother's house he boarded.
Until about three weeks ago he worked on
the "Owl" train, with a layover at West
Elizabeth, where he boarded with Mrs.
Catharine Welsh, a widow, with one son
and a daughter. He was changed from the
"Owl" train to the Brownsville express
about the time stated, and was compelled in
consequence to reside at Brownsville. On
Wednesday afternoon he called at Mrs.
Welsh's to get his trunk, and to spend a
pleasant evening with his affianced, who
rafter supper went up stairs to assist him in
packing his effects,
THE OLD STOEZ BEPEATED.
While doing so he picked a revolver out
of the trunk, saying: "There is a gun that
nearly cost me my life once, bnt it is not
loaded now," and he snapped it two or
three times. Miss Welsh was frightened
and recoiled from the weapon, but Waite
persuaded her that there was no danger and
to prove" it handed her the revolver, saving:
"Snap It at me; it is not loaded." She took
it and fired with no result Again he told
her to snap it, and again she obeyed with
terrible and nnlooked for results.
A stifled groan' from1 her lover, an agonized
shriek from a woman bereft of reason by her
killing of tbe man she loved, and he gasped
through the gurgling blood which rose in
his throat, "My God, Josie, you've killed
me." He staggered to the stairs, and
crawling down by the banisters entered
Mrs. Welsh's room, saying: "I'm shot,
Mrs. Welsh, I'm dying;" and falling almost
at her feet, expired instantly.
Doctors were summoned "at once, but no
help conld be rendered the unfortunate
voung man. The bullet had entered his
breast at the right nipple, penetrated the
lungs, and he apparently bad died from the
terrible hemorrhage. The attention of the
physicians was af once directed to Miss
Welsh, who had become violently hysteri
cal, and who had required their constant
care and watching to prevent her from dash
ing herself to. the ground from the window
or otherwise injuring herself.
A HANDSOME OIEL.
The above facts are all that can be gleaned
from tbe statements of the afflicted mother
and the yonnger brother of the unfortunate
gill, who is heart broken over the terrible
calamity. Miss Josephine Welsh is only
about 22 years of age, a .decided brunette
and remarxaDiy prepossessing. She is a
school teacher, and very highly respected
by her .associates as by all who know her.
Grant Miller, Chief Clerk ot the Coro
ner's office, when he returned from West
Elizabeth last night, said it was the most
pitiable case he had ever heard. Mr. Waite
was, as stated before, engaged to be married
to Miss Welsh, and but a' short time ago
had nrged her strongly to name the day,
bnt she wished it deferred until after tbe
present school term. Grant Miller said the
young lady was a raving maniac through
the shock, and closely watched by three
doctors lest she should do herself harm.
The inquest was postponed until next
Monday night, to allow her a chance to re
gain her composure, and, as she, was the
only witness to the tragedy, relate the ter-i.
rible story of the accident, if it were an ac
cident The victim's father's name is Joseph
Waite, residing at 20 Osborne street, Hind
pool, Barrow-on-Furness, Lancashire, Eng
land. KEW GAS FIELD.
A Rctrnlar Sponter Struck at Cbnrtlers, on
the Allegheny Valley Road Mnrrys
vllle Field Contlnned.
A great natural gas sensation was sprung
at Chartiers, on tbe Allegheny Valley Bail
road, yesterday by the bringing in of a great
gas spouter three miles due east from
Tarentum. The sponter roared vigorously,
and assailed perceptibly the ears of people
two miles from the place.
The well is on the Newswonder farm and.
has been put down by 'Chalmers & Taylor,
tbe glass manufacturers, of Tarentum. They
had explored the field to the extent of
having a small well tbere already, the gas
from which was piped to their glass works.
The well was brought in at 2 p. M. yester
day, and the tools were hauled ont after a
long struggle. They will be lowered again
to-day and more boring indulged in.
A crowd ot experts swarmed out to tbe
field and took in the roarer in detail.
They all agreed that bevond question
tbe sand was unmistakably the same as the
Murrvsville article, showintr that a belt
.must extend between the new well and the
Murrysville field. This was considered
wonderful, almost bevond credence, but tbe
report reached The Dispatch office late
last night upon unimpeachable authority.
There is reported to be great scurrying for
leases in all directions, and many an old
farmer's post-prandial repose, alter wrest
ling with turkey, was interrupted by am
bitious searchers for options and leases. It
seems to be a territory which has received
but little attention from gas magnates as
It is stated that a well 'sunk for gas not
far distant showed oil when the pnmp was
worked yesterday. The Chalmer and Taylor
well is the biggest that ever was brought in
A GOOD DIVIDED.
Pleasant Nevr for tbe Farmers aadHfecBaa
lea' Bank Depositor.
J. H. Sorg, ex-President of the Farmers
ancLHechanics' Bank, on the Sonthside, was
at the Central station last night proving
ownership of a horse which had been sur
reptitiously appropriated the night before by
some unknown uartv.
Belative to the affairs of the defunct bank,
Mr. Sorg said there was every prospect of
the depositors coming ont whole, or very
nearly so. There would be a dividend of
26 per cent, or so, paid out very shortly. He
felt snre from tbe present indications that
the depositors would receive ultimately 75
to 80 ner cent, and nrobablv dollar lor
dollar. His reason was that several of
the stockholders would be com
pelled to pay up, and - some
nronertr which vet remained, including
valnabfe coal land, would realize in a more'
satisfactory manner than was anticipated.
Une point Mr. &org laid stress upon was tne,
fact that the management of the Farmers
and Mechanics could not be blamed for the
failure, as no one firm could get more tkaa
$10,000 from tbe institution by its rules.
