, Gripmen From the Fifth Avenue Line
Going to the Central

"Yes," said a gripman ou one of the Fifth
avenue cable cars yesterday, "If that
"greenie' on the hind end of the car isn't
fired I'm going to kick. It's pretty near
time'they were getting experienced men on
this line. Host of the old fellows are leav
ing for some canse or other. Many of them
are looking for jobs on the 'Wylie avenue
line, which they say will be running within
a couple of months."
"What is the matter with the 'greenie?' "
queried The Dispatch man, as his eye
followed the wording of the sign prohibiting
passengers from talking to the gripman.
"Weil," said the latter, "that fellow is
an extra. He has only bien rnnning a
couple of days, and wants somebody to tell
him the rules. He wants to stop at every
possible place along the road and let pas
sengers of The rule is to stop only at the
opposite corners of cross streets, but a great
many green conductors want to stop between
squaics. Very often after leaving a corner
and as I am jnstjretting a good grip on the
cable, the bell will be pulled, and I am sup
posed to stop. If I do not do so there is a
row between the passenger and conductor,
and the latter tries to have it out witn the
THINGS THAT MAKE LIFE TTEAET.
"It is very tiresome also to have the bell
pulled to stop just as a car is passing a
cross street. If it is on a down grade and
the rails are slippery I almost dislocate my
limbs trying to stop the rear end of the car
at the crossing. It is very seldom
that this can be done even with the
use of sand on the track. The sand causes
the wheels to get a "grip" on the rails, but
very often the car will slide several lengths
before I can come to a stop. In order to
stop at the crossing a conductor should pnll
the bell rope about ten car lengths from the
corner of the street where he wants to stop.
"Some of these new conductors have a
funny idea about the use of the bell coid.
When running one tap of the bell means to
stop. Two taps is to go ahead. Three is a
signal seldom beard in this citv. It means
to stop instantly, no matter where you are
at the time. The signal is only used in case
of accident, but it is seldom required. Four
taps of the bell means to go ahead, and make
no stops to pick up passengers. This is
used when one car gets behind time, and
another is following it close. The car be
hind is creeping up now, but the 'greenie'
does not see it. If we are 'called down' for
rnnning on the other car's time, the
greenie' will have to stand the racket. A
few more complaints and he will be 'fired.'
a gripman's dodge.
"It used to be a common thing to get con
ductor in bad repute with the officials to
fall behind to pick up their passengers.
This was before the company got so strict
about making schedule time. If we wanted
to get a conductor off, we would get the
cripman on the car ahead of him to fall be
hind so close that he would pick up the
other's passengers. At the end of the day
there would be a great difference in the re
ceipts of the odorous conductor and the
others. The receipts of each car will aver
age abont the same, and when one falls away
below the others there is something wrong.
The company did not ask many questions,
but 'fired' the man on the supposition that
he was plaving heads and tails with the bell
cord. In other words there was a supposi
tion that he was knocking down. This was
more in vogue when we had an Assembly
of the Knights of Xabor on thisline. The
union was broken up at the time of the
"N o, not many of our gripmen are leav
ing to go on the Wylie avenue line. That
will be a hard road to "grip" on. Most of
it is down hill and the road runs through a
good portion of the heart of the city. I
think accidents will be numerous unless
they get good, experienced men. On the
Wylie avenue hill, especially above Fulton
street, it will be extremely hard to stop a
car coming down in rainy weather. This is
too wearing on the muscles of the arm, and
I think my job is bad enough without trad
ing it for a worse one."
A Wave of Temperance struck the Down
Saturday night a wave 'of temperance
imultaneous with the cold wave struck the
down-town districts, and the drunks were
few and far between as compared with the
average Satnrday. The Central station had
an echo in its vaulted chambers which re
sponded to the solemn tread of Sergeant
Adolf Uetz, whose recent entrance into
married life has made him thoughtful.
The boisterous bums and the wailing women

and a half brick.

THE EARLIEST EXTAKT BIBLE MSS.
Valuable nod Interesting Fnc-Slmlle Re
productions Secured for the Western
Through the efforts of Dr. M. B. Kiddle,
aided by some friends, the Theological Sem
inary, of Allegheny, has just come into pos
session of two notable sets of fac-simile re
productions of early Bible manuscripts.
These manuscripts, Aleph (codex stnuifi
ct) and B (codex eattcantes) are
uncials dating from early in the fourth cen
tury, and are of the highest value not only
by reason of their completeness and anti
quity, but also for the internal evidence
they afford of being a near approach to the
Aleph is written on parchment in large
uncials that is large, square capital letters
with four columns to a page. It is the
most complete known manuscript in exist
ence containing all the New Testament and
most of the Old Testament in theXXX
version. In addition to tftese it has
the Epistle of Barnabas and a part
of the Shepherd of Hernias. It is supposed
by many scholars to be one of the 50 copies
which Constantine the Great had prepared
in A. D. 331. But whether this be true or
not Aleph and B do not date later than 350
A, D. When we recollect how few manu
scripts of Greek or Ecman classics date
earlier than tne tenth century a MS of
Virgil is said to belong the fourth
and one of Dion Cassins to the fifth cen
tury, while nearly all the remainder of
classic MSS are as late as A. D. 900 we
can see how superior is the MS evidence for
the New Testament to that of most other
ancient writings. .
The discovery of Aleph byTischendorf is
an interesting story. It was found in the
convent of St. Catharine, at the foot of Mt.
Sinai, in February, 1859. In 1844 Tischen
dorf had been at the convent and acci
dentallv discovered 43 leaves of a manu
script of the Old Testament in a waste
basket where they had been thrown by those
who were too ignorant to understand the
value of the treasure in their keeping. This
fragment was afterward known to be a part
of Aleph. Again in 1853 he visited the
convent, but failed to add anything to his
discoveries. On a third visit inl859he ac
cidentally discovered this Manuscript, just
at a time when he was about to return home,
and much to his delight was permitted to
take it, as a loan.to Cairo. Here he, with the
assistance of two friends,setto worK to copy
the entire manuscript lest he should not be
able to secure it for a permanent possession.
But in October of that year he was over
joved to receive permission to take it to
Europe, where it afterward became the
property of the Czar of Russia through an
interchange of presents between him and the
authorities of Sinai. It is now in the Im
perial Library at St. Petersburg.
The copy secured by the library of the
Western Theological Is one of 300 printed
and pnblished, 1862, at the expense of the
Czar, Alexanderll, in celebration of the first
millennium of the Russian Empire. It is
contained in four volumes. As the edition
was so limited copies are rare and costly.
But few of them are iu this country. Union,
Princeton, Andover and Hartford are, it is
said, the only other theological seminaries
possessing copies. '
Manuscript B.is as old as Aleph and
while not nearly so complete is probably
more accurate. It was brought to Home
about the year A. D. 1450 and was entered
on the Catalogue of the Vatican Library,
which was made in 1475. It contains nearly
all the Old Testament in the LXX version
and the New Testament up to and including
Hebrews ix.:14- This manuscript was
known in 1533, but it was kept from public
use for a long period. The pressure of in
terest, however, became so strong that
scholars were finally given permission to
examine it; but so great were the
restrictions even then that the ex
aminations were thought to be hurried
and unsatisfactory, and the editions which
were given to the'world as a result were far
from accurate. However, at last a complete
and critical qnasi-fac-simile edition of the
whole manuscript was published at Vercel
lone, under the auspices of the Papal
authorities, in six folio volumes, the first
appearing in 1869 and the last in 1881.
This edition is really a very fine one, and
while of course not equal tor educational
purposes to a fac-simile copy, it is of ex
ceedingly great value and the library of the
seminary is to be congratulated on securing
a copy of it.
The agreement of these two ancient manu
scripts on a particular reading is practically
conclusive especially when reinforced by
any other early testimony. These copies
will be of great assistance to Dr. Biddle in
teaching his classes textual criticism, and
will be highly appreciated by future classes
in the seminary.
A LITTLE WORLD OF WONDERS.
A Glance. En Fasaant, at the Lovely Ar
ticles In the Establishment of Hardy &,
It is very doubtful if, under onePittshurg
roof, there was ever assembled such a wealth
of beautv and worth as can now be seen in
the handsome store of Messrs. Hardy &
Hayes, No. 529 Smitbfield street. Evidently
the refinement of taste and the utmost lib
erality have been brought to bear Upon the
contents of this place. A necessarily brief
glance at a few of the most notable articles
is here given for the benefit of beauty-loving
gilt-buyers iu general, and the readers of
The Dispatch in particular.
In the upper room were found some of the
finest articles in Mexican Onyx ever brought
to this city. There is a tripod stand that is
a marvel of grace and elegance, the top of
the handsomest onyx, like a great moss agate,
and the framework of a rich bronze that
harmonizes beautifully with the rare min
eral. An onyx pedestal of classic outline
supported an onyx vase of faultless form
and proportions. Then there were lovely
oojecis in uie same material an epergne,
toilet mirror, clocks, a very handsome onyx
card case (a novelty), a jewel casket, etc.
Finally, an onyx stand that upheld a peer
less loucbet vase, a ware of indescribable
beauty. On the lower floor, at the rear of the
main store room, the display of beautiful cre
ations was fairly dazzling. This term applies
most fittingly to the firm's showing of
their famous "Natural Gas Cut Glass."
The purest fuel in the world used in creating
the purest glass in the world, has resulted
with the aid of the glass cutter's art in
such glassware as might deck a King's
table. It was-as if great diamonds of purest
value had been wrought into fairy-like
shapes, wherein sunbeams had been im
prisoned and all the colors of the rainbow
were held. Near by a charming assortment
of figures in bronze and purest Italian
marble feasted the eyes and the artistic
sense, and close at hand a wondrous display
of Boyal Worcester ware aroused envy and
covetonsness in the most sluggish mind.
In handsome cases stood gracefully de
signed Candelabra in silver, brass, Dresden
china, Baccarat glass and Eoyal Worcester.
Nearer the front of the store ample cases
held exquisite creations in pearl
necklaces nt for a Princess
throat, and delicious bracelets, set
with diamonds, rubies and olivenes,
the latter a gem of the utmost beauty. Here,
too, flashed out the splendor of an assem
blage of "Marquise" rings, their oblong set
tings crusted with brilliants, and revealing
lovely combinations of rubies, emeralds and
diamonds. Then came an assortment of
daintily painted miniatures, set about with
pearls, and designed for use as brooches and
pins. Here, also, were seen exquisite rings
for gentlemen, and a variety of other allur
ing articles of jewelry defying adequate
description. Tne ample show windows held
stately corner clocks and a host of other
In short, at this holiday season, when gift
bujirir is in order, no intelligent person,
pos?iedof an atom of taste, can afford to
omit a protracted visit to the establishment
of Hardy & Hayes, 529 Smitbfield street.

WOKE FOR THE POOR
The Anniversary of the Association
for Their Advancement.
XOBEE LABOES WELL PERFORMED.
The Annual Keport Eeveals Progress in
A CALL TO THE PEOfLE FOE MORE MOKEI
The fourteenth anniversary meeting of the
Association, for the Improvement of the
Poor was held last evening in St Peter's
Protestant Episcopal church. There was a
large congregation. After brief services of
song and prayer, the annual report was read
by Mr. H. K. Porter. The figures of that
report were published in The Dis
patch yesterday. There were, how
ever, explanatory remarks connected
with the statistics. The families un
der the care of the association had
been aided, as a rule, only temporarily.
Where a case was looked after for any
length of time, it was because of sickness or
accident Assistance was usually given in
the shape of orders for food, fuel, clothing
or household utensils. Where things were
needed not within the power of the associa
tion to give, special friends were made ac
quainted with the case. It was the princi
ple of the association that the best way to
help the poor was to teach them to help
themselves. Whenever persons were able
and willing to work, work was found
for them. The facilities for furnishing
such employment had been unusually good
during the year past Persons who were
able to work but unwilling to work could
not get help from the Association. Worthy
accident, blindness, desertion, widowhood
and inadequate work Tne society naa
found 541 families maintained by the joint
efforts of women and children, who needed
the society's help to keep them trom want
During the year there bad been 12 visitors
in the service, each with a defined district.
Every appeal lor aid was thoroughly inves
tigated. DEFENDING THE POOR.
Such an investigation was a defense and
protection for the worthy poor, defending
them from the rapacity of the unworthy.
The association had vital work to do for the
children. Often they were forced to work
when they ought to be in school. In such
cases the association tried to give such aid
to a sick father or indigent mother as to en
able them to let their children go to school,
and the children were given fit shoes and
clothing. Praise was given to the order of
the King's Daughters of the Disciple and
Presbyterian churches, who had made cloth
ing for poor children. '
The branch of the association called the
Children's Temporary Home had been car
ried on with gratifying results. There had
been 103 children received, and 88 had been
placed in homes or transferred to other in
stitutions for the care of children. There
had not.been one death in the Home. Let
ters received from persons who had taken
out children were very satisfactory. During
the year the Country Home at Oakmont,
known as the Fresh Air Fund work, had
made its best record. A country life there
for two weeks had been enjoyed by 66 women
and 283 children.
The report referred tenderlv and sorrow
fully to the death of William Thaw, saying:
"His memory will live in the hearts of those
to whom he "gave generouslv time, thought
and money, for the benefit of humanity.
He was a true example of those who believe
that they are doing God's best work when
they are doing good to their fellow men."
The report was signed by the Secretary,
Mrs. S. E. Lippincott
Rev. Mr. Mackay, the rector, repeated
the last words of the report and urged the
members of tne congregation to act upon the
line of that sentiment While the choir
sang, four ushers went through the assembly
with the collection plates. The contribu
tions were liberal, and the plates were
heaped np with clinking silver and rustling
Bev. Mr. Mackay then spoke briefly of
the claims of the poor and of the work of
the association. Soon after his arrival in
Pittsburg he had fallen in with some of the
visitors of the association. He found them
praying for the dying, literally laying out
the dead, helping here, fcthere and every
where. He had attended their district
prayer meetings, and conducted some for
them, until his friend said that he was turn
ing Presbyterian. He said: "Men and
women eame to those meetings absolutely in
rags. Their shawls looked as if they had
been carded by a comb. They were in
shreds. $ I canunderstand why those people
would not come into a church. You cannot
expect them to come here among you. Their
selfrespect forbids it"
Bev. Mr. Mackay said that he had heard
some criticisms of the association's manner
of work. It might not be just such as the
angels would adopt He had no doubt that
there would be people on the resurrection
morning who would find fault with the
angel Gabriel for the manner in which he
blew his horn.
Bev. W. A. Passavant, a venerable min
ister, delivered a discourse on the beauties
of charity and the miseries of the poor, re
lating anecdotes from his own experience.
He praised highly the work of the" associa
tion, and advised the rich to give it aid.
The association had distributed through
the church small slips containing the
printed statement, "We need 5,000 in ad
dition to the amount received from annnal
subscriptions and funds by bequest." Con
tributions are solicited.
DEAN MAI REC0VEE.
The Doctors Removed a Portion of Bis
Yesterday the last thing that could be
done to save the life of Bobert Dean, the
man who was found a week ago Saturday in
an unconscious condition under the Lake
Erie Bailroad trestle at the Southside, was
performed, when his skull was trephined at
the Southside Hospital. It is thought that
unless inflammation sets in he will recover.
At his home, No. 174 Seventeenth street,
there were no facilities for performing the
operation that the doctors had decided was
necessary, and besides the man could be
better cared for at the hospital, so he was
removed there yesterday morning. It was
found that the right parietal Done had
been fractured and a portion forced
inward, so that it pressed upon the brain.
It was surprising that the man had lived as
long as he had with such an injury, the doc
tors said, and unless the bone was removed
he could not possibly live more than two or
three days longer. When the fragment was
taken out it was found tha,t some pieces of
hair bad been forced into it and a piece of
a clinker was also taken irom it. These
facts together with the position of the
wound lead the physicians to believe that
Dean was hurt by falling from the trestle,
and was not assaulted as some people have
believed. The police have found nothing
to cause them to change their opinion that
Dean fell from the railroad trestle.

FAITH LN VACCINATION.
Dr. Fife Tells Why Smallpox Has Not Vis
Ited Pittsburg Poles and Swedes Ob
ject to Inoculation.
Dr. J. B, Fife, vaccinating physician for
the Lawrenceville district, in speaking yes
terday about the absence of smallpox in
Pittsburg to a Dispatch reporter said:
"The people of Pittsburg can thank Chief
Brown, and the Department of Public
Safety for the action they took when this
city was threatened with an epidemio of
smallpox a month ago. The disease was
raging in the islands of Lake Erie, and the
presumption was that this city would be
visited by the deadly scourge. Chief Brown,
on receiving intelligence of the virulent
natnre of the disease, immediately notified
the Board of Health to proceed with the
work of vaccination. The physicians of the
various districts went to work, and in a
month almost all the unvaccinated children
were inoculated with virus, which is such
a splended preventive against smallpox.
"The only fear that smallpox, may break
out in the city is that the vaccinating of
ficers may have missed some honse in an out
of the way court. Iu the narrow courts of
the city disease "has its birthplace. No pure
air penetrates there, and once any con
tagious or infectious disease gets a firm
foothold in these close and unhealthy
haunts it is as difficult to keep it from
spreading in the neighborhood as it is to
fight a great fire.
"In a number of cities and towns con
tiguous to the Lake Erie islands smallpox
has broken out These cities have not been
as careful as our own to guard against the
incursion of the disease. It is almost an
impossibility for smallpox to get any hold
here, and people may rest content that this
winter no epidemic will break out If the
disease had not been warded Off at the first
nothing could have prevented an epidemio
SaUto ppvaccK "the
There are two classes of peopie in tnis
Poles and thp. Swedes. We have the great-
est difficulty in convincing these people of
the benefits of vaccination. It appears there
are no smallpox laws as rigidly enforced in
their land as exist here, and whenever
we go to their houses, the women kick
np a great noise, and sometimes use physi
cal means to prevent ns doing our duty. As
a matter of fact, no nationality require more
careful vaccination than the Poles and the
Swedes. They live in close quarters, and
their an.irtmpnts are not- kept scrupulously
clean. Again, two or three families live"
under one roof, and if smallpox breaks ont
among members of the household, then the
whole house is doomed. There is a law
which makes it compulsory for members of
a family to be vaccinated, but these people
seemingly evade it, and there ought to be a
way of compelling them to obey the law.
If this matter is not taken up by the au
thorities soon, in the Polish ana Swedish
quarters smallpox may be contracted, but it
could be confined to that neighborhood; it
could make no headway in the city, because
the barrier of vaccination will effectively re
KEW GERMAN CLUB.
Allegheny Teutons Organizing for Their
People Exclusively A Series of Enter
tainments A new German club has been organized
in Allegheny. It is to be operated on much
the same plan as the Pittsburg and Du
quesne clubs, except that private receptions
and entertainments will be held, to which
none but members and their families will
be admitted. A charter will be applied for
in a few days, and it is anticipated that he
fore the beginning of the new year the club
will have a membership of 150.
A permanent organization was effected
last Saturday evening at a meeting of prom
inent German citizens, held in Masonic
Hall. Officers were elected and a plan for
the future was discussed. It was decided to
secure a portion of Masonic Hall, on Madi
son avenue, for the use of the club at pres
ent, until more suitable quarters can be ob
tained. It is the intention at once to
inaugurate a series of lecj ires, concerts and
receptions for the benent of the members
alone. No tickets will be sold, and no one
but members and their families will be ad
mitted. It is expected that these entertainments
will be of such a high character as to in
terest a very large number of the better class
of German citizens in the enterprise, and
when the membership reaches 125 'or 150
steps may be taken to build a large club
house in 'some central and well adapted loca
tion. So far 75 men have signified their in
tention of becoming members, and over 50
of these have already done so. At present
the membership fee has been fixed at ?5,
with annual dues of $8 attached. The men
who have gone into the movement include
some of the most prominent business and
professional men of the Third, Fourth,
Seventh and Eighth wards. The following
are the officers and board of directors of the
President, Dr. E. L. Czarniecki.the Alle

The club is to be established exclusively
on a social basis, and will be operated for
the benefit and pleasure of the members
only. Dr. Blume was called upon yester
day afternoon, and he said that the plans
for the club had been about completed.
Some 10 or 12 years ago a similar oreaniza-
tion existed in Allegheny, hnt'the interest"
died, and the club disbanded. The present
club will contain many of the members of
the old organization, and it will be run on
about the same plan. The club has already
taken possession of the lower part of Ma
sonic Hall, and arrangements will be made
in the very near future for their first enter

St Agnes' Catholic Church in Soho will
be dedicated Sunday, December 15. The
ceremonies will be conducted by Et Bev.
Bishop Phelan, and will be of the usual
order. They will begin at 10 o'clock, and
preparations are now being completed for

Bishop to the edifice.
The present church is oyer the old one,
which has been converted into schoolrooms.
The superstructure wasjbuilt by Father Cor
coran, who took charge four years ago. The
interior is composed almost entirely of hard
wood. Three "new altars have just been
placed in the church, and mass will be
offered upon the main one for the first time
on thevday of the dedication.
The 40 hours of devotion began yesterday
in the church. High mass was celebrated
by Father Corcoran, who preached the ser
mon. The latter was on the blessed Euchar

course. A procession around the church
by the school children was held. The girls
were dressed in white and carried baskets of
flowers in their hands.
