5?HE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, MONDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1889.
fffl CUMBERLAND GAP.
Southern Contract From a Welsh
M Firm Comes to Pittsburg.
fflEATY CAPITAL STOCK INVESTED.
-Coke Prices Will Keither be Advanced or
CALLAGHAN AFTER POWDEELI'S BCAIP
The English capitalists who have in
vested money in Southern ore and coal
lands, do not propose to allow much grass
to grow under their feet. In the neighbor
hood of Cumberland Gap new towns are
springing up almost as rapidly as the sur
veyors can lay out the sites, and schemes
fnr the erection of several extensive iron
plants are being perfected in the offices of
Pittsburg's leading engineers. Surveyors
who have been over the district on behalf of
the syndicate, are eulogistic of its future as
an iron center; the ore and coal are of good
quality and found almost side by side. In
addition to its manufacturing facilities, it
possesses the advantages of wide tablelands
of great fertility, such as would attract
settlers and farmers, and induco an inflow
The property in control of the syndicate,
which is "known as the American Associa
tion, covers an area of 75,000 acres. It is
tapped on one side by the Louisville and
Nashville Railroad, "which is engaged in
extending its feeders by tunneling under
the Gap, at the points above referred to,
and on the other, the association has con
structed a 64-mile road Jrom the Gap to
Knoxville, which will he operated in the
interests of the Norfolk and Western road,
giving that line a Southwestern outlet.
OW3TED BY A WELSH FIBM.
The American Association, whose in
terests in the district are represented by a
capital or?12,000,000, is largely owned by a
Mr. Watts, of the firm of "Watte & Carr, one
of the largest colliery owners in Wales.
A member of the firm, Mr. Edgar
T. "Watts, has been in the South
for a considerable time seeing to the develop
ment of the property. A short time since,
while in this citv, he signed contracts with
Mr. James P. "Witherow for the erection of
two large, modern blast furnaces at Mid
dlesboro, the name given to a township in
embryo, which is situated on the Kentucky
side of Cumberland Gap. The equipment
of these furnaces will include 8 20x60
feet "Whitwell hot blast stoves.-6 blowing
engines, steam cylinders 42 inches, blast 84
inches, and stroke 60 inches; 28 steel boilers
each 34 feet long, 54 inches in diameter, and
having 2 18 inch flues; .a wrought iron,
brick-lined draft stack 12x180 feet high.
The tankage will be a wrought iron stand
pipe 20 feet in diameter and 75 feet high,
and the wrought iron hoist towers will be
equipped with the latest improved engines.
The pumps, heaters, steam and water fittings
will be of the most modern designs.
The buildings will include three, casting
houses each of 60 feet span connected, 150
feet long and 25 feet high; two boiler houses
50 feet span by 100 feet long; stock house,
engine and pump house, and a complete arc
light electric plant. "Work on the founda
tions has commenced, and the cost will
reach from 5500,000 to 700,000, a due pro
portion ot which will be expended in this
district. The Superintendent of the new
plant will be George I- Eeis, of Knoxville.
The development of this new iron field is
not without interest here, and as much to
workers as to manufacturers. The former
will see to it that no unjust advantage is ob
tained by Southern manufacturers over
their Northern competitors on the score of
the cost of production, and manufacturers
will watch the growth of the iron industry
in'tbe South as indicating in the future a
keenness in competition with which they
may have to account.
The Importation a few days since of 2,000
tons of Southern Bessemer pig by a leading
firm is an early indication in this direction.
It is claimed however, that the quality of
this pig iron is not such as to cause any ap
prehension of rivalry with lake ore iron.
The Southern ore is said to be largely phos
phoric, and is therefore unsuitable for other
than foundry work. For this purpose, how
ever, large quantities or iron may in the
future be brought lrom the South, as it is
said that it can be delivered here by way of
Cincinnati and the river for 53 50 per ton.
. COKE SHIFHEMS INCREASE.
Prices Will Remain as They Are Indica
tion! for Trade Good.
'The demand for coke is still very large,
unusually so.'and the condition of the iron
trade would indicate a lively time in the
coke regions fur some time to come. The
restrictions placed on the output still con
tinue, and, owing to the weekly increase in
the shipments, the stocks in the yards are
being steadily diminished. The inoreased
shipments would indicate that the car sup
ply is easier, but coke operators here have
the same grievance to enter against the
carrying companies on this score as of old.
One firm last week had a train of loaded
cars lying alongside its works for two days
owing to the inability of the road to provide
Tbe shipments aggregated 7,490 cars, dis
tributed as follows: To Pittsburg and river
tippies, 1,650 cars; to points west of Pitts
burg, 4,514 cars; to points east of Connells
ville, 1,326 cars. The shipments for the pre-
vious week wen: Pittsburg, 1,600; West,
4.200; East, 1,370; total, 7,170. Estimated
at 18 tons per car, the output of last week
was 134,820 tons, or nearly 13,000 tons more
than tbe production, reducing the stock of
coke on the yards to about 75,000 tons.
Owing to the fact that the H. C. Frick
and McClure works were idle on Thanks
giving the production was less by 5,000 tons
than during the week previous, an estimate
.placing the nnmber of tons at 121,954.
Though shipments of coke are selling at
52, prices will not change from those current,
which are: Furnace coke, 51 75; foundry,
52 05; crushed, 52 55, on board cars at ovens,
2,000 pounds being taken as a ton. Freight
rates from ovens are as follows: To Pitts
burg, 70 cents per ton; Mahoning and Shen
ango Valley points, 51 35; Cleveland, 51 70;
Chicago, 52" 75; East St. Louis, 53 20. The
demand is active and prices from each sec
tion are reported as firm.
ANOTHER MEETING HELD.
The Reporter! Appoint a Committee on Con
tltoilon nnd By-Lnivs.
Another preliminary meeting of news
paper reporters was held yesterday morning
in Union Veteran Legion Hall, over the
office of the Pittsburg Gas Company, on
Sixth avenue. The object was to determine
whether or not the proposed guild or
brotherhood should be organized. About
one-half of the active workers of the profes
sion were present A Committee on Con
stitution and By-Laws was appointed.
When the report is presented and the ob
jects of the proposed association given in
detail it will then be settled whether it will
be beneficial to organize or kill .the idej.

IS HE A KNIGHT?
Opinions ot Labor Leader on Both Sides
About the McGaw Case.
The end of the McGaw expulsion is not
yet, neither is it within view. The position
taken by L. A. 7190, Warehousemen, in re
instating a member after he had been ex
pelled from the order by the General As
sembly is without precedent, and one which
prominent Knights are quick to say will
not be tolerated for long by the Executive
Board. Th e affair is very complicated.
Mr. McGaw and Secretary of the Local
Carroll maintain that under the constitu
tion of the order a delinquent member mast
be charged and tried before his assembly be
fore the case comes within the province of
the Executive Board, and therefore the Gen
eral Assembly acted unconstitutionally in
expelling McGaw before his local assembly
had acted in the matter. This new move
would leave McGaw a full-fledged Knight.
Another aspect of the case is presented by
those who allege that McGaw is not legally
a member of the assembly which reinstated
him, so that his reinstatement goes for
nought, and he is no longer a Knight It
is very likely that considerable light will
be thrown upon the phase of the case in a
very short time.
Then again it is held that the General As
sembly acting by its Executive Board is in
vested with full power to take summary
action in such cases as Mr.McGaw's, and on
such evidence as it had before it in support
of the charges entered against that gentle
man in the late convention. Master Work
man Boss holds to the opinion that L. A.
71908 action is quite unconstitutional and
cannot be sustained.
Secretary Carroll said yesterday that
his assembly was quite within its rights in
reinstating a member who had been illegally
expelled, fie acknowledged that he ex
pected to get into loggerheads with the Ex
ecutive Board on the point, and added that
his assembly Would stand its ground, come
what may. The only action which the
assembly had taken in the matter at any
time was to forward a protest to the
General Assembly against expelling Mc
Gaw, and which it is understood was not
given any consideration at the meeting.
What is most likely to result from this com
plication is that the Executive Board will
rescind L. A. 7190's charter, and it is be
lieved that the withdrawal of the Ware
housemen from the Knights of Labor would
be a step which would be mutually pleas
ing. RESULT OP CARELESSNESS.
Chief Brown Calls Down Business Men for
Allowing; Waste to Accumulate A Sal
Tdfie Corp Needed.
Chief Brown, of the Department of Pub
lic Safety, was asked yesterday what sort of
precautions the people themselves, who
cavil at the work of the Fire Bureau, have
taken against the danger of fire. He said:
"ITon would be astonished at the negligence
manifested, particularly in some of the com",
mercial houses. They allow packing cases,
excelsior, wrapping paper and all kinds of
rubbish to accumulate in their cellars the
whole year. A man goes down to find some
thing, lights a match to search for it, throws
the match carelessly away -and some insur
ance company weeps tears at 51 a tear for
somebody's carelessness. Take a trip through
the cellars of business houses in the city
and see if I have exaggeiated. The same
trouble exists in some ol the hotels, as in the
case of the Monongahela, where the attic
was packed with mattresses and oil-soaked
boards were said to be strewed around the
"There 13 another thing that should be
regared as an important factor in the safely
of buildings, and that is the architecture.
The Monongahela Honse had several dif
ferent kinds of roofs, which very much im
peded the work of the firemen, and any
architect who would put a fine like an
elevator over a battery of boilers should fol
low some other calling.
"The remedy, if any, lies with the Board
of Underwriters. They should investigate
such cases as I have mentioned, and raise
tbe rates for such negligence. This would
bring the people to their senses, and
materially lessen the labor and danger of
firemen, who have enough to contend with
in their avocation in the natural course of
Inspector McAleese concurred in the re
marks ot the Chief, but went further, and
said thsre should be legislation to prevent
accumulation of inflammable rubbish in
cellars. The worst fires to contend with, he
said,'.in his experience, where those in hotels
on account of the danger to life which sets
everyone excited, and provokes too much
comment front the spectators, who are al
ways too numerous on such occasions.
"Still, I think on the whole," he said,
"we have reason to be thankful, for there
are probably more than a couple of dozen
buildings in the city where a big fire wonld
be possible. The fact is the people here
have no cause for grumbling, for since 1845.
with the exception of a few oil fires. Pitts
burg has never had a big fire. I mean one
which would reach 5500,000 or so. I shall
tell you something, however, in which we
are sadly deficient and which we ought to
have had 15 years ago, and that is a salvage
corps attached to the Fire Bureau. It
would have been of great value at the Mo
nongahela fire, as in fact at any other. It
would pay the underwriters to support one
themselves, or at least to contribute largely
to its support The losses by water would
be reduced to a minimum, and those by fire
considerably lessened. A good salvage
corps would be a great addition to the
safety of the city, and I suppose the citizens
will find that out some time."

A Steel Tool Making Establishment
Billed for Coraopolis.
NATURAL GAS CAH BE OBTAINED.

THE COUNCIL TACKLES THE LAKE BRIE
It seems from what was stated yesterday
that there is good ground for the belief that
the Coraopolis people will yet have a facto
ry in their midst, and one that will give em
ployment to 150 men, It is said there is
little doubt that the objections raised by Mr.
Joyce, who proposed to start a steel tool
works, can be overcome. In addition to the
11 or 12 acres attached to tbe present plant,
a considerable body of land is wanted, and
His owned by the Chess family and a man
named Peddicord. It is supposed it can be
purchased, as what would be left on the ter
race above would be greatly enhanced in
value by the location of the works. Lashell
station, a half a mile below, is known to be
on the gas belt, and the owner says they
may bore there on favorable terms.
Mr. Young, 'Gene, as his neighbors call
him, is not the man who proposes to start
the works, but will be manager if they are
started. It is suggested that if Coraopolis
does not get th factory, it may be estab
lished at Lashell station, where in addition
to having a gas well right in the
works, there is a boat landing which has
always a sufficient depth of water for any
Some people are disposed to resent what
they consider flings at the village, and in
their way, they are very worthy people also,

progress and obstructed it they are not a
USE OF THE TAXES.
Some of them objected to mention Of the
fact that one year only about 5 per cent of
the borough taxes collected, aside from the
school levy, were applied to the use of the
borough, except the amount invested in
printing and books, salaries,etc. The streets
were then in such horrible condition as to
suggest to some taxpayers that part of the
fund paid for stationery, salaries, etc,
might have been better expended on
The opposition to inequalities in assess
ments will not down, and when a man re
fuses to take a price five times as great for a
lot as it is assessed at and yet professes to
want to sell, but tries to put something on
the buyer that he does not want, and so pre
vents house building, he must not expect to
escape adverse criticism, undoubted
though his right to hold may be.
The small property holders object
that their bouses are made bear the bulk of
municipal expense in order to enable large
land holders to hold for high prices at the
expense of the poor. This policy has driven
much improvement away from the vicinity
of the main railway station, but has bene
fited land holders east and west of it, who
knew a good thing when they saw it
Some small property holdera are not enti
tled to much sympathy, as they invariably
make their howl after an election, when, if
made before it, would be potential. The
weakness isn't confined to Coraopolis
The present Borough Council is doing
good work in addition to the making of
streets and forcing people to build board
walks. It has tackled some nuisances long
maintained by some railway employes,
especially that of the almost constant blow
ing of locomotive whistles, which threat
ened to give the entire village neurosis.
HABD ON THE NERVES.
Some people's nerves became so affected
that it was a matter of indifference to them
whether hey went to bed or were hung over
a chair back, or stood on their heads when
they wanted to sleep. This was also largely
the fault of the citizens themselves, as they
allowed their anger to evaporate in grnmb
lintr, instead of applying to the railway
authorities for relief. At one time trains
were allowed to stand a considerable portion
of each day on crossings, to tbe great detri
ment of business in the borough. One day
a citizen appointed himself a committee of
one and laid the matter before Superin
tendent Holbrook. Mr. Holbrook thanked
the complainant for his interference, and
had the nuisance abated at once. The
Council has also decided that the railway
crossings must be improved, and altogether
it has shown a disposition to make improve
ments that will be of permanent benefit
All these things cost money, but the
policy is the only one that will build towns.
No matter how much city people may sigh
for rural life, they do not want dt accom
panied by mud, rheumatism, malaria, ty
phoid tever and diphtheria, and country
villages generally suffer more from these
scourges than do cities. The time is not
far distant when the practice of having a
well and vault In each 50-foot lot will be re
garded as not only suicidal, but a crime
against humanity at large, and will be no
more tolerated in country than in city.
ON SABBATH BREAKING.
Rev. Sir. Spronll Obtrcts to Members Driv
ing to Sleeting.
Bev. J. W. Spronll, pastor of the Central
Allegheny Church, at the afternoon services
yesterday, spoke on Sabbath observance.
The subject of the discourse was: "Five
Important Facts Brought Prominently to
Public Attention by the Late Sabbath Con
vention." Dr. Sproall said:
"During the past week there has been
held a meeting for the purpose of securing
a better observance of the Sabbath, and I
wish to give some few impressions made on
my mind by the convention. A totally dis
interested observer would think that the
members of the community regarded the
question as of minor importance, for despite
tbe publicity given to the matter by the
newspapers, a very small audience greeted
Dr. Crafts on Tuesday. Among the masses
there is a general disposition to look upon
the Sabbath as a mere holiday,
"Then again people are not willing
enough to make sacrifices to secure the ob
servance of the Sabbath. Among other
things, chnrch-members do not select their
homes with a proper regard to proximity to
the church, and are compelled to counte
nance desecration by riding to the service.
These people should do one of three things.
They should move nearer church to which
they belong, or they should join a congrega
tion nearer their homes. If they do not wish
to do either, let them remain at home, and
observe the day as best suits, them. Many
people break the Sabbath simply because
there is money to be made by, so doing.
Their enormous gains in worldly wealth
blind them to the better part the gain of
"Those who claim to be friends of the old
fashioned Sabbath lack backbone, and their
love of the Sabbath consists largely in talk.
There is no proper effort made to secure the
carrying out of the laws relating to the day,
because the contempt and contumely heaped
upon those who have made an effort has de
terred others from joining in the good work.
The lack of deep conviction on the subject
is only a symptom of the times. Every
thing indicates that unless something is
done the church will disintegrate. The
danger is already apparent, and is steadily

A Sinking Wall Throws Eble's Drue Storo
Out of Plumb The City May be Sued
The druestore building of Charles Eble,
No. 6009 Penn avenue, East End, collapsed
again lost Saturday evening, and created no
little excitement in the immediate vicinity.
The east wall sank, throwing the building
out of plum from 12 to 14 inches. It first
began to crack at 8:30 Saturd ay evening.
The children of Mr. Anton "Wolfe, of the
Wolfe House, next door, were at the time
playing on the piano. They heard a rat
tling sound, interspersed with thumps and
cracks. They thought it was in their out
ou.se, and did not know how to account for
it. At last they became so frightened that
they rushed from the room, leaving the
lights burning and the piano open. They
did not tell their ghost story to tneir parents
for fear of being langhed at.
Later Mr. Wolfe was disturbed by un
canny sounds issuing from all parts of the
house. Thinking it was the electrio light
wires, he turned the current off and grouped
around the house with a candle until 3 A.
M., searching for the author of the sounds.
At last he concluded something was wrong
in Mr. Eble's building next door. He
thought of everything but the right cause.
In the morning he went up for Mr. Eble,
and together they proceeded to examine the
building, Mr. "Wolfe telling him that there
was a ghost either in Mr. Eble's building or
Just as they were about to go into the
building Mr. Wolfe glanced up and saw the
big gap between the two buildings, and the
two rushed back, not daring to enter. A
little later Bnilding Inspector Charles Hoff
man came along and a barricade was placed
in front Groff & Hineman, tbe jewelers,
occupying the first bnilding east of the
shaky structure, were notified and removed
their goods to the hack part of their store.
The building was cropped up and was being
watched last night. T. J. Brady, the
plumber, was also ready to move at a
A crowd stood gazing at the bnilding all
day from the opposite side of the street It
will be remembered that the building had a
like experience last August It bad just
been purchased by Mr. Eble for $10,400, and,
after collapsing, was taken down and the
present structure put up, with S. Munsoh
as architect, and C. Klicker, of Allegheny,
as contractor. Mr. Eble said the new build
ing and site were worth about 17,000.
The contractor and Architects Munscb,
Orth and Frazier will hold a meeting at 10
o'clock this morning to determine what
shall be done with the building and the
cause of the cave in. Mr. Eble said tbat it
was undoubtedly produced by the sewage
from the adjacent lots leaking into the
cellar and undermining the foundation.
There is a possibility that the city mav be
mixed up in the affair on account of its fail
ure to put in the sewer on Kirkwood street
in the rear sooner, it being claimed that if
there had been an outlet provided for the
water, the bnilding would not have fallen.
It is possible that it may be propped up,
and a new foundation built It not, it will
again have to be torn down. This will be
decided at the meeting this morning.
A Complaint About tbe Sanitary Condition
of the High School.
The following communication was received
at the office of The Dispatch on Satur
day, and the subject is one of no little im
portance to the parents whose children at
tend the High School:
The attention of the Central Board of Edu
cation is called to tbe bad condition of the
toilet rooms at tbe Pittsburg High School.
The writer of this has received complaints
from his children, who attend that institution.
It is certainly the imperative dnty of those in
charge of such an institution to carefully
cnard tbe health of pnpils attending there.
Sewer gas is evidently not conducive thereto.
If the board does not take steps to remedy the
evil, it would not be amiss for the Health De
partment to make a visit Howerer.ithere are
several members of the Central Board who are
physicians, and their attention called to the
matter should at least enlist their active inter
est. Investigation among the families whose
children attend tbe school revealed the fact
that several cases of malaria of a serious
typo have occurred among the pupils re
cently. Headaches are also a common com
plaint, and altogether the evidences ot a
poisoned atmosphere are very numerous,
especially since the recent rainy weather.
A member of the Central Board of Educa
tion was asked if the board was cognizant of
the state of affairs at the High School, and
he replied that he was astonished the Visit
ing Committee had not discovered the evil.
He said he would certainly call the atten
tion of the board fo the matterat its meeting
on Tuesday, and immediate steps would be
taken to remedy an evil which should never

The Sad Results of Neglecting tbe Injunc
tion to Speak Easy.
The handsome Lieutenant of the first po
lice district, Robert Denniston, about 3 A.
M. yesterday heard several men in succes
sion try to enter No. 10 'Clark Btreet, and
from the tenor of their conversation smelled
a large-sized beer keg within short range.
Be called several officers and raided tbe
establishment, which was run by Mamie
Peddick, colored, and an old-timer on the
police records. When the officers entered
the house they found two other colored
women, three 'white and three colored men,
who were partaking of bottled beef that was
contained in two large boxes.
At the hearing at Central station yester
day morning the Lieutenant testified tbat
complaints against this honse. had been
numerous. The Magistrate fined each of
the visitors to the honse $5 and costs, and
held Mamie Beddick over for a hearing on
a charge of illegal liquor selling.
