Bishop Mullen's Eloquent Tribute to
CARDINAL AND CLERGY 'PRESENT
The remains of the late Bishop Trigg
were laid to rest yesterday in the Catholic
cemetery at Altoona. The ceremony drew
together the greatest funeral concourse ever
witnessed in Western Pennsylvania. In
ecclesiastical circles it was the most solemn
and impressive funeral service ever held in
the Pittsburg diocese.
It was attended by one cardinal, one
archbishop, five bishops, about 100 priests
and the same number of nuns.
All Altoona wore the somber hue of
black. Every business block, every public
building, the city offices, stores, shops, etc,
were all draped in crape. "Work had been
suspended in most of the shops and the ma
joritv ot business houses and stores were
closed. The quietude of the city showed the
general regard in which the late bishop was
held by Catholic and Protestant alike.
The services in SL John's Church were
scheduled for 10 o'clock. Two hours before
that time, there was a crowd of over 500
people jostling in front of the church wait
ing for the doors to be opened. When the
main entrance was opened there was a rush
for seats and the ushers were unable to con
trol the vast crowd that thronged the build
ing. Seats had been reserved for the pall
bearers, clergy, etc., and many of these
were taken by the crowd eager to witness
THE CLERGY PBESEHT.
At 9:50 o'clock the clergy of the diocese
hied in and took the seats reserved lor them
in front of the altar. Among them were:
The Rev. Fathers Sheedy. McTighe, Werten
bach, of Braddock; McKeen. of Latrobe:
Hickey, of Braddock; JicTighe, Corcoran,

UPON THE CATAFALQUE.
The body of Bishop Tuigg was exposed to
view in the center of the church in front of
the main altar. It rested on a dark pnrple
catafalque on a raised platform, set on the
tops ofthepews. The late prelate was
dressed in his full canonicals, consisting of
the purple mitre, purple cap and shoes.
Around the body at the edge of the platform
were six immense candles. At the head, on
both sides, were trees of lighted tapers. At
the lower end ot the platform were four im
mense floral offerings. Thev were a column,
wreath, pillow and cross4 In the center of
the platform were two baskets ol cut flowers,
offered by the school children. Two of the
officers of the church acted as sentries around
The first peep inside the church gave one
a creeping sensation of death. Everything
was draped with funereal black. The altars,
crucifixes, stations of the cross, choir gal
lery, etc., were covered with the dark cloth.
Broad streamers of crape hong from the
spires of the altars to the top of the sacristy.
The pulpit was looped with it Graceful
festoons ot black cloth surmounted the fig
ures and images of the saints The massive
candlesticks on the platform where the
body lay were also covered with the crape.
Over the main altar and in the center of the
church hung pendant from the ceiling the
words "Rest in Peace," worked in immor
telles. The letters were almost a foot in
THE OFFICES OF THE DEAD.
After taking their seats outside the altar
railing, the priests began the chanting of
their office. When they entered the church
it was so dark and gloomy that the gas had
to be lighted. All morning it had been
dismal outside, with a slight spnnkle of
rain descending. When the response to the
chant came from the throats of the five score
of priests, a flood ot sunlight filled the
church. It struck the stained glass win
dows back of the main altar and threw a
halo showing the many colors of the rain
bow around the body of the dead Bishop.
The light danced and played upon the win
dows and the sudden transformation from
gloom to sunshine had a remarkable effect
upon the feelings of the persons in the
church. It was a curious circumstance that
the sun continued to shine until alter the
ceremonies, when the rain again commenced
At 1020 the solemn procession of Bishops
appeared at the side entrance and marched
to the altar. The prelates were Bt Rev.
Bishops Phelan, McGovern, of Harrisburg;
JIulIen, of Erie; Kane, of Wheeling;
O'Hara, of Scranton; Archbishop Ryan, ot
Philadelphia, and in the rear cameCardinal
Gibbons, walking with his customary digni
THE EEQUrEH BEGUN.
Upon taking their seats inside the altar
rail, solemn pontifical requiem was begun.
Bishop Phelan was the celebrant Very
Rev. Father Wall, of St Paul's Cathedral,
was the arch deacon; Father Tobin, deacon;
.Father Dufiner was sub deaconf Father
Caneviu master of ceremonies, and Father
Kittell, of Tyrone, assisted. Bishop Mullen
preached the sermon. He said:
When I say that this is a sad and solemn oc
casion I say it from the bottom of my heart I
sayithecause many are here to deplore the
loss of one whom we loved and esteemed for
almost a half century. It is a solemn occasion
because we invoke the mercy of God on the
soul before us. The first words we
find in the gospel used for the Saint
of this day are. "watch because you know not
here how soon the Son of Man may come."
This is a solemn warning given by Jesus Christ
iiim&ell, and intended lor all classes; the laity
as well as the clergy.
Why should wewatchT The reason is given
by God himself. We know not the hour the
living will be judged by the dead. God comes
to-day for one, to-morrow He will come for
another, in the end for us all, sooner or later.
If you fall to watch you will lose all, a loss
never to be repaired. Watch, therefore, be
cause you Know not the hour or minuto yonr
Lord will call you.
A TBIBUTE TO THE DEAD.
Of my dead friend here, I can say ho was
continually on the watch and had himself on
all occasions ready for his Master to come an d
jndcehim. From his boyhood to the last mom
ent of his earthly existence he was watching
for the summons. He felt at an early period of
his career a call for the priesthood. He then
parsuedastudyof tbeclassics. Ha vine acquired
this he looked for a college where he could
complete'his studies. He caught the spirit of
his Maker. A spirit that is still alive. He felt
that his life was not destined for home work
and desired to be sent where he could instill
into people the teachings of Christ
I remember bim at All Hallows College, near
Dui.lin. where all the students expect to exercise
the functions of the ministry, nut in their na
tive laud, but in foreign countries. While there
he met the first bishop of Pittsburg, who was
then going on a visit to the Holy See. Bishop
O'Conner called at the institution for recruits
to come To America, and among the first that
imposed to come was the young lad Trigg. He
came to this country and entered St. Michael's
fcomlnary in Pittsburc, where lie was ordained
ajriestliyiJislHm O'Conner. His first assign
ment was to Bt Paul's Cathedral, where he was
the assistant priest lor some time. He gave
satisfaction 10 everyone, especially to the
B.snop, wliowa always pleased with his con
. tluct He was earnest asalous and prudent,
, and. like a faithful priest attended the sick
cuis.uiat came ny nignt as wen as day.
t TW1V -TTrT'Y.y''Trw .-mrn-w
Jl- --. .-X.!.
fAbont that time, therewere, lew Catholics in"
this section. As Catholicism is always in
creasing the f ew grew to scores. They hid no
place to worship; neither had they a priest.
They soon found a place where they could offer
the divine sacrifice of the mass. A church was
erected. I remember It was a mere shell, and
on the day of the dedication it was not entirely
completed. Service was held in It once or
twice a month. The Bishop of the diocese soon
had cause to appoint a pastor to the church,
lhere were no youngpnesis in the diocese that
bad the qualifications except John Tuigg. He
was sent here, and in a short time hada mag
nificent church established.
Throughout his lone career in this city his
conduct has received the sanction of every
E relate nnder whom he has labored. At last
e was appointed one of the dlgnataries of the
church. I need not expatiate on his works.
Tbey are all around us and bear
silent testimony to what he has done.
Some people claim that his greatest work was
in the baildintr of the church, because It is in
many respects superior to many of the cathe
drals m this country. Others say the parsonage
was his greatest work, others say the school.
others point to the great convent building he
erected, otners point to nis success as a nisnop,
but I do not agree with any ot them. His great
est work was in the manner he accepted the
vacancy in the bishopric at Pittsburg. When
it was offered him he hesitated on account of
the great enterprises his predecessors bad gone
into and ran the diocese heavily in debt He
took the place in the firm belief that the voice
of Pope Pins IX was the voice of his Lord. He
began work on the great task before him, and
was about having financial matters arranged in
excellent shape when he was Btrkken with
HIS GEEATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT.
The spirit he inculcated in favor of parochial
schools was a magnificent thing. When he
came here there were but four Catholic schools
in Western Pennsylvania. There were in the
city of Pittsburg two English and two German
schools. He saw that in order to save the
Catholic people he must begin with the chil
dren. If he must have a good, practical Catholic
concregation he must becin at the root and
build it up. He succeeded admirably ana set
the example to other clergymen. I do not say
that the present parochial schools are the con
sequence of the example of John Tuigg, but I
do say that the example he set to others must
have had its effect The schools here were
built owing to the influence he exercised by
being pastor of St John's congregation. The
cry has been raised that the priests only are
pushing the establishment of parochial schools.
This is wrong. You remember only a few
months ago, at a convention of laymen in
Cleveland, with which the clergy had nothing
to do. a resolution was passed urging the insti
tution oi Darocmai scnoois wnercver w. was
possible. Neither vou nor anyone else need
say that the bishops and priests only are inter
ested in Catholic schools. It is said, "Let
Catholics alone, and there will be no trouble
about the parochial schools." If we let them
alone they wonld never trouble themselves
about coming to hear mass or about eating flesh
meat on Fridays. Let Protestants alone, and
thev will not come to D raver meetings.
The duty incumbent on pnests in regard to
the public school matter is plain enough. Our
Lord slid, 'Go teach all nations. Teach them
religion, to be good Christians and save their
souls.' That was the motto of Father Tuigg
and he never forgot it From the time he left
nis home it was constantly before him. in the
seminary, as assistant priest as independentpas
tor and when be became a. prelate. 1 hose who
knew him best loved him most He might
have been buried near bis Cathedral, but he
preferred to lie where he baptized people;
where he prepared them for the battle with the
THE CLOSING BITES.
After the sermon the bishops went upon
the platform and took seats around the body,
the Cardinal and Archbishops taking their
places at the lower end of the catafalque.
Each bishop in turn took the censer and
sprinkled holy water over the body. The
Kyne Eleison was chanted and the absolu
tion ended the ceremonies.
The' clergy then retired, and the people in
the church were given an opportunity to
view the remains. The procession around
the catafalque was preceded by the Sisters
of "Mercy and Sisters of Charity.
For over an hour there was a steady stream
past the bier. Hundreds of those who came
up to view the remains for the last time,
with tears in their eyes stooped to kiss the
ring on his cold finger. After everybody
had taken a last look the remains were
placed in a casket, and a hearse, drawn by
tour coal black horses, conveyed them to the
AN tTKFALTEBniO ATTENDANCE.
Notwithstanding the mud, which vas in
most places three aud four inches deep,
about fi.OOO people marched in the funeral
procession to the cemetery.
All the Catholic societies, fire department,
city officials, commissioners, etc., walked
through the mud and rain to pay their last
tribute to the worth of the late Bishop. The
young women's and girls' sodalities also
turned out, wearing their badges. There
were about 100 conveyances of all kinds that
followed the hearse to the grave.
The pall-bearers were: x
Dr. Christy, Frank McClain, Arthur Dunn,
Frederick Ball, John Shenk, George Strile,
John O'Toole, James Callom, John O'Neil, A.
7. Henderson, E. T. O'Freil and James Brown.
The Catholics of Altoona are loud in their
praise of the action of Mayor Fulton, who
issued a proclamation asking the merchants
and others to close the places of business
between 12 and 1 o'clock. The proclama
tion was generally observed.
BISHOP TDIGG'S WILL.
He Leaves Everything to the Church
Archbishop Rvan's Denial of the Ursu
Ilne Story A Rumored Cbnnee.
The will ot the late Bishop Tuigg will be
filed for probate to-day or to-morrow.
Bishop Phelan, who succeeded him as the
bead of the Pittsburg diocese, is the execu
tor. The will was made public yesterday
afternoon after the funeral. The late Bishop
disclaims all right to any personal property
of any kind.
By doing this he leaves everything he
owns to the diocese, and prevents any litiga
tion that might arise by any of his relatives
trying to secure part of his estate. It is not
likely that such a thing would occur, as he
has but one brother and one sister living.
The former is a banker in New York, and
the latter is head of the convent of the
Sacred Heart in the same city. He has one
or two nephews, but it is not at all likely
that they would try to secure a share of
what he left
The Bishop made his first will in 1877, im
mediately after his consecration. It is a law
in the Catholic Church that upon assuming
the title and office of Bishop a priest must
make a will and sign over to the church
diocese the real estate and other properties
of which he is the custodiian and which he
holds in trust as head of the church in the
diocese. AH deeds, mortgages, etc., are
made out in the name of the Bishop, and the
action is done to protect the church against
litigation ot relatives alter a prelate's death.
He is entitled to keep all his personal prop
erty, and can dispose of it as he sees fit In
the present case Bishop Tuigg says he has
no personal property, and this gives the
church everytmng he owns.
In his first will Bishop Tuigg made
Bishops Kane, of Wheeling, and Mullen, ot
Erie, his executors. When Father Phelan
was made Coadjutor Bishop, with the right
of succession, Bishop Tuigg made him his
It is a question of doubt among the clergy
of the diocese whether or not there will be
any change made in the pastorate of St
John's Church at Altoona. Father N.
O'Beilly is now in charge. It is stated that
he was made pastor of the church by Bishop
Tuigg, but on this point nobody is clear.
It was rumored in Altoona yesterday that
there was a probability ol Father O'Beilly
being removed. This cannot be done with
out cause, according to the rules of the
Catholic Church. It such action is taken,
however, the priest has a chance to appeal
to higher authority than the Bishops. He
was Bishop Tuigg's private secretary.
While at the iuneral yesterday. Arch
bishop Ityan was asked for information as
to what disposition be would make of the
TJrsuline case in his recommendation. The
Archbishop, as usual, did not want to talk
for publication. When asked if it was
true that the recommendation from Borne,
received some months ago, was to the effect
that Mother Alphonse would have to be
paid $60,000 or be reinstated, His Grace
laughed, and said:
"That is not true. Jn the communication
I received from Borne the matter of rein
stating Mother Alphonse was not men

the least likelihood of Rome Baking such a
recommendation. Notb.Inr.has .been done

INTO SCHMLE-I PARK
A Big Fight Brewing Over the Squir

1TSEEMBT0CUT THE PARE C0EKEE
EigelQW and Brown Interpose Vigorous
WHAT EVERYBODY CONCERNED SAIB
A quiet little row has been in progress
for some time between the Squirrel Hill
Electric Bailway Company and the city
authoritfes over the right of way given the
company to pass over a portion of Schenley
Park, by Francis Torrens, the agent of the
Schenley estate, before the park had been
ceded by Mrs. Schenley.
Just why the matter has been kept so
quiet is difficult to determine, unless it be
that each side hoped to effect some kind ot a
quiet compromise that would prevent
scandal, if such a term may be applied to
quarrels of almost dally occurrence and
seemingly a necessity in these days of turn
ing over all things old and making all
BEADY TO JUMP THE JOB.
Some gentlemen were conversing on the
street yesterday, and one of them remarked
that the railway company was ready to
"jumr the job" by putting its track down
suddenly at night The conversation was a
casual one, and the speaker evidently did
not know that he was telling news. He
thought there might be a fight but did not
talk as though he expected gore.
A reporter at once sought Mr. B. Q.
Whitten at the office of the Internal Reve
nue Collector, but Mr. Whitten blandly
made answer that the report was news to
him. He said the road did cut into the
park Blightly, bnt did not hurt it and had
been graded for some time. He seemed sur
prised that at this late day there should be
Mr. Longhry was next sought for, but he
was not at his place of business. His ab
sence was regretted, as he is a good talker.
TVHAT SECBETABT HAT SAID.
Mr. F. G. Kay, Secretary of the company,
was next visited, and lie made light of the
matter, stating that the relations of the
company and Mr. William H. Brown, the
city engineer in charge, had always been of
the most amicaDie character, ana that in lact
the city authorities generally had shown the
company the utmost courtesy on all occa
sions. Mr. Kay, however, deprecated any
allusion to the matter; as he said it could
not do any good, and there was a possibility
of friction arising from possible misunder
standing or irritation.
After some additional parley, the in
quirer was convinced that further applica
tion of the probe to Mr. Kay was useless,
but as the news was given so circumstanti
ally that it seemed impossible to conceive
there could be no fire, inquiries were prose
cuted in other directions and with better re
sults. OFFICIAL ACTION TAKEN.
When the ordinance granting the road
a right of way through the streets was
passed by Councils last July the plan which
accompanied it showed that the line was to
traverse the western end of the Schenley
property, now Schenley Park. Francis Tor
rens, agent for the property, gave the right
of way, and the line ran through the ex
treme west end of the nark. Beginning
at a long trestle bridge the road
was to be built at Joncaire street
over the hollow through which the
Junction railway runs, and continuing
for about 600 feet along the western
slope of the park property. The Sqnirrel
Hill Company proceeded with the work of
grading and preparing this part of the road
and have lately been at work constructing
the trestles to connect the two sides of the
ravine. The work on the road was so nearly
completed that the company have already
some of their cars here ready to put on the
Last Friday Chief Bigelow paid a visit to
the park, and seeing the rapid progress
being made with the construction ofHhe
road, decided to prevent its passing through
the park. The next day City Engineer
Brown, acting under Chief BigelqsVs orders,
went ont to the ground and in the presence
of Martin Frank, who is the contractor on
the framework of the bridge, ordered Mr.
Trimble, the civil engineer, who is super
vising the construction of the road, to stop
work immediately. Mr. Trimble followed
instructions for that day, but on Monday
went to work again, although the weather
has permitted him to do but little since.
Mr. S. Diescher, the chief civil engineer
of the new road, said last evening that if
Mr. Bigelow insisted on the road keeping
entirely outside of the park it would cause a
great deal of trouble, as the topography of
the land in that section is such that it would
be next to impossible to get around the park
without changing a large portion of the
route, which, since so much had been ex
pended already for grading, wonld be very
expensive. However, he thought Mr. Bige
low would not insist on a change, as the part
of the park traversed by the present route is
absolutely useless for any purpose on ac
count of the steep grade. ""
Mr. Joseph Loughrey, one of the directors
of the road, said that, as the company had
secured the right of way through the prop
erty before the city got possession of it, the
city could not stop them from going ahead.
He thought there was no doubt but that the
work on the road would be pushed right
along despite the City Engineer's orders,
and was at a loss to know what bbject Mr.
Bigelow could have in obstructing the com
Howard Morton, whose- lather was the
original projector of the road, said, when
asked concerning the trouble, that he
thought the position of the company was all
that could be desired. He thought the line
of road skirted the park, but did not cubit
in any place, and he supposed there wonld
be no trouble, as the Legislature and Pitts
burg Councils had both agreed in giving
the company not alone as much as they
asked, but more. The question of right of
way was settled long ago, and he thought
that any objections made now would hardly
PRESIDENT MUEDOCn'S VIEWS.
Alex. Murdoch. Vice President of the
Squirrel Hill Company, was seen, and said
the company had six cars, which had arrived
and were stored at the power house of the
Traction Company at Oakland. A half
mile out of the three miles of road had been
laid in rails, and the greater portion of the
road bad been graded. The trestles were
laid across Boundary avenue, or nearly so,
and work was progressing In a very lavor

avenue? The understanding is that when you

will be stopped by the city authorities."

garding tbe position of the Squirrel H1U Rail
road I shall give them to you, but I have noth

Councils hare alreadv granted a right of way."
"But at that time the Schenley Park was pri

"1 have nothing to say about that"
A POINT BLANK QUESTION.
"Does the Squirrel Hill Railroad run through
tbe park or notr"
"I shall not say anything about it"
The fact is that W. H. Brown, City En
gineer, yesterday pnt a man on watch to
prevent any incursion on city property, and
to see that the three miles long railroad did
not make dividends on the fact of running
through the park property.
Chief J. O. Brown, of the Department of
Public Safety, said last evening that he had
not been informed of tbe railroad contro
versy, and that he thought it not being in
bis department did Bot.eoacern him. but

to afford it in case tbe railroad troubles
would become serious.
John F. Hunter, Street Commissioner,
notified the contractor for the railroad, Mr.
McKibben, that if tbe road was pushed
across Boundary avenue in the same direc
tion it was going at present operations
wonld have to be suspended. This was the
first blow in the official fight, and was the
reason for the placing of a watch on the rail

There is a supposition that Oliver Bros,
have bought the whole of the mill lately
operated by the Pittsburg Steel Casting
Company. This, however, is a mistake.
Oliver Bros, only bought that portion which
abuts on Smallman street, between Twenty
sixth and Twenty-seventh streets, and run

the Steel Casting Company.
Though the latter company sold their
Bessemer plant to Oliver Bros., they will
soon build a converter and two cupolas,
where they can make steel castings, for
which this company became famous. The
new Bessemer lurnnce will be built at the
lower side of the mill. The latest improve

LAWRENCE BANK MATTERS.
912,000 Worth of Checks Protested Yester
day Action of the Dollnr Bank.
Yesterday the Lawrence Bank depositors'
committee presented three protested checks,
amounting to 512,000, to Assignee McKelvey
for payment. Mr. McKelvey had been an
ticipating the presentation of the checks, and
received the gentlemen with courtesy, but
politely refused to honor tbe checks, stating
that they were not yet ready to pay out
money or cash any checks.
The givers and holders of the checks im
mediately proceeded to a notary and took an
affidavit to the effect that the officers of the
bank, who now hare control and management
of the institution, refused to honor the
checks, and sent them with the affidavit to
Auditor General McCamant, who will, at
the expiration of 30 flays, instigate an inves
tigation into the cause of the bank's in
ability to meet the checks.
The subsequent appointment of a receiver
will be easily accomplished The Fidelity
Trust and Title Company is still mentioned
as the favored receiver. A statement is not
yet in sight.
A sci. fa., or notice of foreclosure of a
mortgage, was issued yesterday by the Dol
lar Sayings Bank against Long & Co., pro
prietors of the mill at Chartiers. The mort
gage on which the writ was issued is for
$70,000 and covers the company's mill. The
cause of action was the failure of the firm to
pay two installments of $5,000 each, due
Augustl and October l,1889,and $300 insur
ance premium. The mortgage is dated
August, 1887, and the last payment is due
August 1, 18S2.
' This mortgage does not interfere with the
executions issued by the Lawrence Bank,
on which the Sheriff has made a levy, as the
levy was on the stock and personal property
of the firm which is to be sold to-day, and
the mortgage covers the mill proper, build
ings, machinery, etc.

Another Bate Haa Been Set for F. & SI.
Postal cards have been issued to the de
positors of the defunct Farmers and Me
chanics' Bank that on next Monday morn
ing a dividend of 26 cents will be paid.
The auditor and officials of the bnk will be
located in the temporary offices in Odd
Fellows' Hall, corner of Sarah and South
Eighteenth streets, where depositors must
present their bank books.
This is about the third date that has been
fixed for the payment of tbe first dividend,
bnt it is confidently stated that the money
will be given out this time. If the old saw
is true, that "the third time is the charm,"
there will be many a happy hearthstone in
Bouthside households next Monday night

The Directors of the Philadelphia Gas

than to say that it was important and largely
of a private character. One official said:
"The meeting to-day was an important one,

TBE EYIL8 OP SEWAGE DISCUSSED
The action of councils on Monday in re
gard to the Beck's Bun schindery, has
furnished a fresh impetus to the agitation
against the alleged nuisance, started by The
Dispatch, and the Southside people seem
more determined than ever to fight tbe mat
ter until the schindery is a thing of the
Notwithstanding the fact that winter is
here and the danger to the health of the
Southside is practically over for rfix months,
at least, the citizens are not satisfied to let
it remain. It turned ont yesterday, how
ever, that possibly wrong steps have been
taken at the outstart
The schindery, the target aimed at, is out
side of the city limits, and consequently
OUTSIDE OV THE JUBISDICTION
of the city's representatives. At least, tbt
is the general impression. There is a pos
sibility of there being no remedy unless the
Government takes the matter in band.
The river being Government property, the
Government is liable for its proper care and
control. Another theory advanced yester
day is that the State Board of Health is
the body that should act in the premises.
The.committee to which the matter was
referred, to act in conjunction with City At
torney Moreland and SuperintendentBaker,
of the Board of Health, will visit the schin
dery next Monday lor the purpose of investi
gating it, and to discover, if possible, what
amount of damage is really caused by its
AH OFFICIAL STATEMENT.
Clerk House, of the city attorney's office,
said yesterday that be could not tell what
might be done. "There is a possibility,"
be said, "of the whole thing being outside
of tbe city's jurisdiction. If there is any
part of Beck's run in the city limits, then
the city can stop the nuisance, it it is a nui
sance. But if the run bears thp contamina
tion into the river, tbe river belonging to
the Government, the city has nothing to do
with it The matter has not been consid
ered in this department as yet, and I am
not preparedto ruake a statement as to what
the result of the investigation will be. In
iact, I may say I know nothing about the
schindery. I do not even know where it is
the crrr powebless.
Superintendent Baker, of the Depart
ment of Health, said: "I do not believe the
city can do anything. I think the matter
should be brought to the attention of Secre
tary Lee, of the State Board of Health.
There is no doubt that the thing ought to be
abolished, but then the people ought to pro
ceed in tbe proper maimer."
The majority of the physicians on the
Southside are loud in their condemnations
of the schindery. Dr. J. D, Thomas, how
ever, is one who believes that the Southsida
has other sources of danger to the health of
people more potent than tbe schindery. He
saia last night: "This whole business is a
great delusion. If diseased animals are
taken to the schindery they are completely
destroyed. Animals have few diseases
that can be conveyed to the human being,
and the utter destruction of all the animals
removes the danger from those diseases that
might be conveyed.
A POTENT BOUECE OF E7TL.
"The most potent source of danger to our
side of the river comes from sewage. We
have ten sewers above the, dam, anyone of
which is much more dangerous than the
schindery. Our only remedy is to get water
from another supply, and the Southside
will always be in danger until we do so.
If we had a pure water supply, we would be
the healthiest community in the State be
cause we have a good drainage."
Dr. E. A. Mundorf differs from this
theory, and hold's as his opinion that any
contamination reaching the river from the
schindery pollutes the water that is pumped
into the basin and used from the hydrants
by the consumers, and that germs of disease
must necessarily be contained in that

It Will be nt Canonsbarg This Afternoon
With Old Friends Present.
The mortal remains of the late William
N. Kiddle left Jersey City at 6:30 o'clock
last evening in charge of Michael O'Toole,

the family that the cortege would leave

Cincinnati and St Louis Bailroad, the in
terment to be at a later hour in the ceme
tery, lyi miles out of Canonsburg.
Bobert A Biddle, brother of the de
ceased, arrived yesterday from Cleveland.
He stated that William Biddle was born
and raised a Presbyterian.
Jfrom a member ot the family ot tbe Jate
William Biddle, the following facts are
gleaned: The late W. N. Biddle, who was
President of the defunct Penn Bank, leaves
to mourn his loss an aged mother, a step
father, three brothers and two sisters. His
only full brother resides in Cleveland; his
full sister in Manchester, Kan. She is now
on the wayto Pittsburg.
H. W. Weller, a halt-brother of the dead
financier, is also a Clevelandite, and his
other half-brother is an attendant of a Pitts
burg business college. The balance of the
family reside in Canonsburg, where the
funeral services will be held. Mr. Biddle
was born in Armstrong county on Kovember
27, 1846. His father died in Davenport, la.,
on May 3, 1855, leaving a widow and three
children, William being the oldest The
family returned to Washington county,
where William lived until entering busi
ness in Pittsburg.

P. E. MISSION WORK.
The Four Missionary Bishops of tbe F. K.
Church to trrlvs To-Day A Series of
Deeply Interesting meeting's.
An important church event will begin in
this city to-day, and it will be an important
event in that it will be a demonstration to
Pittsburg people at least that the Protestant
Episcopal Church is a missionary church.
The event is the annual meeting of the
Woman's Auxiliary. The name of this
Episcopal society designates the mission
work of the church, and, as a matter of fact,
th3 only mission work, because the women
of the church are its members who carry on
the" evangelistic ideas.
This meeting of the Missionary Society
will be distinguished by the presence of tbe
four missionary bishops of the Protestant
Episcopal Church; Bishop Paddock, of
Washington State; Bishop Talbot of Idaho
and Wyoming; Bishop Leonard, of Utah,
and Bishop Kendrick, ot New Mexico.
These reverend gentlemen will arrive in the
city this morning and will be entertained at
the home of Bishop Whitehead. The latter,
tbe Bishop of the diocese of Pittsburg, will
also be present at the sessions of the
auxiliary, and will assistin lending dignity
to the proceedings.
Of the missionary bishops, the esteemed
Bishop of' the State of Washington is the
senior. The work he has done in the North
west is not only a proud part of the history
of the Protestant Episcopal Church, but
has become a part of the history of the
nation. Bishops Leonard and Talbot were
consecrated three years ago, and in the time
of their work in the West have won the
praise of all patriotic people, even outside
of their own church lines. Bishop Ken
drick is the junior, but good words can be
said for him, for before his consecration he
had achieved a high standing iu the church
by his scholarship and evidence of devotion
to his calling.
The first service will be held in Trinity
Church, on Sixth avenue, at 7:30 o'clock
this evening, and will be the general mis
sionary meeting. Addresses will be de
livered by Bishops Talbot and Leonard.
The sessions of Friday will be held in
Emmanuel Church, Allegheny, beginning
at 10 o'clock in the forenoon. The holy
communion will be administered. Bishop
Whitehead will deliver his address of wel
come to all who come to attend the annual
meeting from the towns of Western Penn
sylvania. After the annual reports, which
will show what the good women of the church
have done, addresses on the work will be
delivered by Bishops Kendrick, Talbot and
The afternoon session will be devoted to
tbe business of the auxiliary, and the offi
cers tor the ensuing year will be elected.
Lunch and tea will be served in the resi
dence of Bev. Marison Byllesby. Evening
prayer will be said in the church at 420
o'clock, and in the evening an interesting
missionary meeting will be held, when the
Bishops will talk practically of their work
in the West
Sunday evening, in Trinity Church, the
venerableuishopof Washington will preach
on the missionary spirit
Bishop Whitehead extends a cordial in
vitation to the general public to be present
at all of the meetings of the auxiliary.

ECHO OF A FAMOUS CASE.
CooelasiOB of the Hetsd Armstrosr Coastr
Litigation Over tho Wllklns Failure
Sralseat Coassel Engaged on Bath Sides.
An attorney who passed through Pitts
burg last evening gave the following inter
esting legal news to a Dispatch repre
sentative. He said in substance:
"After a most exciting trial, extending
over almost a week, the jury returned a ver
dict in favor of the defendant, A. C. Hous
ton, assignee of G. W. Wilkins, in the suit
brought against him by the lumbering firm
of Collins, McCain & Co. Tbe trial was
had before the Hon. James B. Neale, and
was hotly contested throughout by the coun
setengaged. The facts or the case were
these: Eor a number of years George W.
Wilkins had carried on an extensive barge
building establishment at Pice creek, six
miles above Kittanning. In August 1887,
he failed for a large amount and fled to
Canada, leaving his creditors in the lurch
to the extent of a round $100,000, and, it
was charged, taking (50,000 along with
"The spring before he failed he bought
from Collins, McCain & Co. (15,000 worth
of square timber. This timber, Collins,
McCain & Co. claimed, was sold condi
tionally, and the title was not to pass until
it was paid for, and further, that the sale
was void on account of the fraud of Wilkins
in buying this and other timber with a
view of committing a fraud.
"On Wilkins' failure the timber left was
replevined by Collins, McCain & Co., but
their title to it was denied by tbe assignee,
who claimed that the sale was a straight
one, and that however fraudulently Wil
kins may have acted toward the last, he
bought tbe timber honestly enough.
"The position of theassignee was sustained
by the jury and the proceeds of the timber
will now pass to the assignee for distribu
tion among the creditors. A number of
lumbermen and city creditors have been in
attendance during the trial. The firm of
Collins, McCain & Co. were represented by
Charles Corbett, of Brookville; Hon. Geo.
A. Jenks, ex-Solicitor General of the United
States, and Messrs. McCain & Leason. The
assignee's counsel was W. D. Patton, Esq.,
and Messrs. Buffington & Buffington."

The Twelfth Ward Station Has Become a
Really Pleasant Stopping Place.
The Twelfth ward patrol station house,
whick has been in the hands of the con

tbe police authorities yesterday completed.
The place has been thoroughly renovated
and enlarged. The interior has been trans
formed, and it is now one of the prettiest
station houses in the city.
The sleeping accommodations for tbe
police are excellent and home like. A
genuine display of taste is manifest in the
choice of furniture, for which Mr. Gamble
Weir is to be complimented. Sergeant

While most other stores have a somewhat
deserted appearance tbe warerooms of H.

veritable bee hive of business excitement.
Their sales of pianos and organs and music
boxes, etc., is something incredible and
must be seen to be appreciated. Everybody
seems to want to buy their music and their
instruments at Klebers'. That old house
enjoys an euviable reputation for selling the
finest instruments at the lowest possible
prices and on the easiest terms. Their rep
resentations are implicitly believed in and
their fame for strictly honest and honorable
dealings is such that people take their word
for it as readily as tbey would take their
bond. The holiday stock at Klebers' of
pianos, orgaus and music boxes is something
marvelous to behold. Don't fail to call at
