EffiELIGIOUS SEWS OP GENERAL INTEREST
Tremont Temple, Boston, recently was
the scene of a remarkable Catherine, influ
ences for pood from which cannot help being
fclt far beyond the precincts of that his
toric hall. The motto of this Evangelical
Alliance," Unum corpus sumut in Uhrttio,"
was -well chosen, aa Baptists, Presbyterians,
Methodists, Episcopalians, Congregational
ists and others mixed as a happy family of
Christian workers. The addresses read were
all filled with the widest Christian sym
pathy, which was well ushered in by the
opening address of "W. E. Dodge, president
of the Alliance, in which he said; "We are
not living in the world of two centuries or
even 50 years ago. We cannot afford to
ipend time or energy on differences which do
not affect our vital belief or our loyal service
lor Christ, and onr brothers about
us who are in suffering and ignorance.
"We hope soon to be in our Father's
presence, where evcrythint: that divide us now
will seem unworthy of a thonjrht. Whysbould
we not acree to reduce these differences to the
smallest point now. while we are doing the
Father's work on earth? We shall never have
the respect or confluence of the godless world
nbout lis till we do this." ..,,
The address by Rev. L. T. Chamberlain,D. D.,
Js said to have bepn one of the most striling.
Civilization." he said, "is the snm total of
human progress The test of a nation's civiliza
tion is the intellicence and character of the
individual Christians. It becomes the more
manifest that Christian elements must be at
the foundation. Onr civilization is still in the
formation period. There are imminent penis
inch as immigration, materialism, intellectual
pride, antagonism of classes and interests, the
controlline power of cities, illiteracy and un
justifiable divorce. Thercmedial saving power
is to bo found in the spirit and teachlns of the
living, reienlng Christ, to whom has been Given
The earnest words of the Rev. Moses D. Hoge,
of Richmond, Va, were heartily applauded, as
in fpeatitiR of the importance of Christian co
operation in awakeninc the moral sentiment of
the community, he said: "Iaonot believe the
world is KCttin worse. I have too much con
fidence in God and too much respect for the
Bible for that. But some parts of it are. I do
not believe the pulpit is gctttns weaken but
tome who try to fill it are. I do not believe
iniquity Is coins to triumph: but never was it
eo open-faced as now. we see it in the great
trusts, the schemes to cheat widows and or
phans, in the attempt to defraud men ot
honestly cainedmeans in thee ways we see tho
nubile conscience debauched. The rectification
of tho morals of trade, the purification of poll
tics, the harmonizing of sectional differences,
the reconciliation of denominations, the arrest
of Sabbath desecration, the settlement of in
ternational questions by arbitration instead of
by the sword, the unfortunate relations of labor
and capital these are problems that demand
our attention and which require time to work
out. The people must be educated to the ideal
of a country having moral relations between
the people and the government, and between
the people themselves."
At the closing meetinsr Dr. Phillips Brooks,
of Boston, and Dr. C H. Parkhurst, of New
York Citv, filled the Temple with people, and
tho nonnta with farts, anmments. illustrations.
appeals and epigrams.
"What might be done If men were wlsel
ht clorlous deeds, my sufferings brother,
, Would they unite In love and right.
And cease their scorn of one another.
Oppression's heart might be imbued
With kindling drops oriovlng kindness,
.And knowledge pour from Bhore to Ehore
Light on the eyes of mental blindness.
What might be done? This might be done
And more than this, my suffering brother,
More than the tongue e'er said or sung
If men were wise and loved each other.

with all the force of one's lungs abont Dame

those churches which omit formal observ

THE FKEE BRIDGE PROBLEM.
The Committee Seems to Rather Favor
Bnlldlng Tbnn Baying.
The special Committee on Free Bridges
met yesterday afternoon in the office of
City Attorney Moreland. Mr. More
land reported that he has been so busily en
gaged in court during the past week that he
has been unable to prepare the opinion on
the free bridge question which the commit
tee asked for. However, he would try to
have an opinion ready by the next meeting.
Mr. Robertson, chairman of a sub-committee,
reported that they had written to
Harrisbarg and found out that bridge com
panies do not furnish the Auditor General
with the figures that the bridge cost. The
committee had learned from those interested
that the Point bridge had cost $760,000, and
the Smithfield street bridge $700,000. But
just what the bridges could be purchased
for the men interested refused to state.
They were willing, however, to negotiate
for free foot passengers, the city to pay a
stipulated sum annually.
Mr. Robertson lurther stated that he had
a talk with an experienced bridge builder
and civil engineer, and he had stated that a
bridge could be built that would satisfy all
purposes for less than $2o0,000. The bridge
would be an iron strncture, and could be
bnilt to accommodate cable cars, vehicle
traffic and foot passengers. This would not
include the approaches. The city could
spend as much on them as it saw ht.
Mr. Carr said it would be bad policy to
think of purchasing any of the bridges when
one could be built lor less money.
Mr. Monroe said it was useless to talk of
purchasing a bridge. The onlf plan 'for
the city was to build a bridge, which could
be done for much less money.
Mr. Robertson said tbat he had learned
there were already five charters for bridges
over the Monongahela river, one at Ross
street, one at South Eighth street, one at
Twenty-second street, one between Twenty
second and Twenty-eighth street and one at

r,SIore Lights Needed.
Those who sit in darkness, and they are
the generalitv of people living on the cross
streets on the hill, are getting very nervous.
The gas lamps have been doused, and in
many sections the eleetrio lights have not
been substituted, and the people, especially
ladies, are afraid to go on the streets after
nightfall for fear they may fall into the

Popularity of liiltlo Wigs to Cover Bald
Spots on the Head.
A LOCAL HOTEL PB0PR1ET0E SCALPED
1 "What lovely hair that yonng lady has,
but what a decided contrast in color with
The above remark heard in the street car
yesterday, combined with the stylish," al
most stunning appearance of the object ot
the remark, attracted the attention of the
writer, and compelled admiration. Close
scrntiny, however, just above and around
the ear revealed the fact that art had lent
its aid to the already bonnteous gifts nature
had bestowed on the young lady.
The "lovely hair" was transferable, and
when the shades of night have fallen, in
stead of reposing od the pillow with thb
charming wearer, it is transferred to a
daintily perfumed case on the toilet dressers,
and a cunning little white cap of exquisite
texture takes its place.
This dispof al of the pretty locks is de
cidedly matter-of-Iact, to say the least, and
leaves no opportunity of weaving romances
about the coquettish curls that cluster
'round tho fair brow of the sleeper: but it
certainly has its advantages also.
"When xhe -rosy (?) light Of morn doth
dawn," the muffins and the steak arc not
ruined by delay cansed by onr lair ideal
dressing her hair. No: a touch of deft
fingers here and there puts in place a refrac
tory lock, and clap it goes on the head, and
we have belore us a most natural delusion
POPULARITY OP 'WIGS.
It is wonderful how many people, both
ladies and gentlemen, resort to the use of
wigs. Some indulge their vanity, a in the
case of yonng ladies with dark eyes and hair
who wish to be especially noticeable, and,
as the bleaching process requires a vast
amount of care, they have the scissors used,
and then pay from 25 to 550 for a covering
of the desired shade. Other ladies, through
severe illness, lose their hair and are com
pelled to resort to artifice, and not seldom
does it happen that they continue using the
wigs indefinitely, as they are less trouble
some than hair growing upon the head.
They are a perfect boon to elderly ladies
whose hair has lost all beauty by the ravages
of time, but they are iar mora expensive
when made of gray or white hair, costing
lrom sou up in the neighborhood of $200.
- Tbeyare to be had in any color, and
dressed in every conceivable manner.
Among youthful people a tendency to the
short curled wig is very pronounced, but
the more mature devotees select a wig in ac
cordance with their age, and dressed in the
Erevailing style. They are held on the
ead by the aid of springs so skillfully ar
ranged that it requires n shrewd eye aud
some knowledge of the weak points to detect
the deception. The most difficnltjp.irt of the
artist's work is in getting the hair to look
P-rfectly natural around the ears and neck,
more so With a lady's than with a gentle
A HOTEL MAN SCALPED.
To view the numerous bald heads in the
theaters, hotels and restaurants, inspires
scepticism regarding the use of wigs by
gentlemen, but the dealers in hair goods are
authority that they are the most profitable
patrons. From the first appearance of the
wee little bald spot until it extends around
the full circumference of the head, art is re
sorted to. These baby wigs that are de
signed to cover the tiny spots are called
"toupees," and ore always made to order,
because no two men ever have bald spots
exactly alike, no matter how much analogy
may exist between them in other particulars.
These little toupees are kept in place by
the use of French paste, and if a man is
economical and takes off his toupee when
he retires they will last from six months to
a year, or until the bald spot outgrows
them. They are very deceptive in their
nature, so much 60 that the tonsorial artist
is sometimes ignorant ot its presence. One
of the prominent hotel proprietors of Pitts
burg, while on a recent visit to JKew York
and stopping at the Hoffman House con
cluded to have his hair trimmed. He
seated himself in the chair and gave the
usual instructions to the nrtist; i e., to trim
the sides and back of his hair, but not to
touch the top. With the usual neatness and
dispatch of a New York barber the trimming
was completed, bnt when giving the finishing
strokes with brush and comb the teeth of the
latter caugnt in the net ot the toupee, end
was very unceremoniously jerked irom the
owner's head. The surprise of the man was
so great and his apologies so profuse and
sincere that .he was forgiven immediately,
but was warned never to let it occur again.
While the toupee was absent the hotel man
concluded to haye a shampoo.
PAVORITE SHAMPOOS. '
Among gentlemen the beaten white of an
egg is the most popular, and a shampoo is
generally a weekly occurrence. Some who
think frequent washing of the head benefi
cial to the hair indulge their'fancy to the
extent of three or four times a week, and
"top off" with singeing; an operation that
loses some of the horrible snggestiveness
that the name implies, when it" is learned
that just a common gas lighting taper is
used, and only the very ends of the hair are
touched. The verdict of the many who
go through the singeing process is
to the effect that a better and a healthier
crop of hair is the direct result.
Ladies depend entirely upon the hair
dresser to whom they go fora shampoo, and
seldom evince any interest abont the com
position of the wash. It requires from 30
minutes to two hours, according to the
length and amount, to thoroughly and sys
tematically wash a lady's hair. Xhe drying
is, of course, the part of tho operation that
ta-esthe time, and in spite of any and all
pew devices lor quickening the process by
steam and heat in other forms, the old
fashioned way of rubbing the hair dry is
still considered the best. Experts in the
line claim that tho rubbing of the hair, and
more especially the scalp, is the most benefi
cial part of the whole performance, as it re
moves all the dry cuticle, and the scalp re
news its life and vigor. Oily hair, though
very inconvenient, denotes a perfectly
healthy scalp, but requires care nt least
once a month. The dryer hair does not ab
sorb the dust to the same extent, but is
seldom luxuriant in growth.

Under the Breeka Act.
Clerk of Courts' HcQnnnegle yesterday com
pleted a statement showing the amount ot fines
imposed in this county under tho Brooks law
since the first conviction under It fur illegal
liquor selling in May, 1888. The total number
of convictions for selling withont license, on
Sunday and to minors, up to date, are 133. The
fines Imposed in these cases aggregated $.30,5G3.
The sum collected, however, was only 2,300.
This is accounted for by the fact that in nearly
every case the fine was accompanied by impris
onment, and the convicted parties generally
having no property, served out their One.
The showing is not a favorable one compared
with those of the preceding years, when the
fine was only JSCL Then nearly every one to
avoid imprisonment paid his fine, and some
years a good round sum was realized. The
Controller's reports show that in 1831. $2,585 OS
fines and costs were collected; in 1882, S35.9GS) OS;
1S83, J8.118 78; 1851. HIM 03; 18SS. $5,879 8(5; 188
$5,858 46; 1887. 810,461 4 The large amountf or
18S2 was due to the tight made by the liquor
dealers under a decision ot Judge Btowe's and
refusing to take out a license under the then
Judge Stows was reversed by tho Supreme
Court, and all who had acted under it wcro
fined. The large Anipunt in 18S7 was due to the
efforts of SpecrSl Agent Mctall, who was alter
the liqdor dealers that year. In every case,
thougn, tnu fines collected for a year wcro
largor than the amount collected since May,
18S8, nearly two years.

A bill in equity was filed yesterday by the
Bnrgess and Town Council of Millvalo borough
against the Pitttburg and Western Railroad
Company. It is stated that in ISSOan ordinance
was passed granting the rallrpad company a
right of way along river aveane in the borough.
It was conditioned, however, that the railroad
should be constructed along the side of the
street next the river, and leave a clear roadway
of 33 feet between tho tracks and the property
A short time ago the railroad company took
possession of the street and commenced to
build a trestle and lay tracks for yard pur
poses. It is claimed that in violation of the
agreement they have taken possession of near
ly the whole roadway. Piles have been driven
in the middle of the street and a trestle bnilt
on them, leaving for wagons a space of about
12 feet wide and 7 feet 6 inches high. An
injunction is asked for to restrain them from
continuing the work, and an order compelling
them to remove what has already been built,
and to comply with the terms of the ordinance.
The hearing before George P. Hamilton,
Esq., in the equity case of H, E. Saff ord against
J. O. Brown and tho Board of Awards, relative
to the purchase of two Amoskeag engines, was
to have been continued yesterday, but owing to
the absence from 'the city of one of the attor

until Monday afternoon.
