• •4, :.....•
We copy. efollowing , from the Petroi-•
emit Centre Daily Record of Tuesday, con
cerning the Benninghoff robbery arid the
capture of five of .the robbers, through the
efforts of Robert Hague, late Chief of Po
lice of this-city: •
Five of the Benninghoff robbers have
beencaptured recently, and' three of them
are Ow in Franklin jail, having''-;been
placed' there yesterday.. The names' of
these three are, Louis Weide, George Mil
ler and Jake Shopbitt. Miller was taken
at Sregertown, PS.,,and Welde and Shopbitt '
at Akron, 0. Two others were captured in -
Philadelphia, and will be lodged in Frank
llnjail to-day. The three whose names are
mentioned above have confessed to their
participation in the robbery, and informed
.on those' who were connected with
them. The principal one—Jim Steger—
has . not yet ' been captured, and it"
is supposed that .he is .in Europe. The
job 9f robbing Benninghoff was fixed up
at Siegertown. Miller, one of the prison
ers, started into the expedition with the
others, but backed out before. they arriVed
at 13enninghotrs house, and refused to help
commit the robbery. He, however kept
the matter secretfol. sortie time, - unti l about
six weeks ago, when he gave information
that led to the arrest of . 'the five. • The
officers waited some time 'after they were
certain of their game, in the hope of get
ting . some . clue to Smger's whereabouts:
But it was finally decided that if they
should get 'him he would most probably be
"dead broke," and none of the plunder
would be recovered, so they concluded to
pounce 'down on. the victims they had in
view, and yesterday they "closed in on
them." This neat little job was put up by
R.o_Vrt Hague, of Pittsburgh, a professional
defective, and a German named Wegefarth,
Who resides in Meadville. On theht be
fore the robbery Mr. Wegefarth was s ated
in a saloon - at: Meadville. T men
were seated near him; they were Ger
mans, and conversing in the tongue of
• c faderland." His attention was arrested by
It remark which one of them made. It was
something as follows : "If that little mat
ter comes out all right we shall be well
enough off." He was partially acquainted
With them and knew that they belonged in
Sregertown. When the news of the robbery
reached him, he at once thought that the
two men whore he had seen at the saloon
were concerned in it. '=His suspicion was so
strong that it soon became conviction in hie
mind. .• .• We do not know how or when
he and Hague' got their heads together.
Hague determined to trace out the robbers,
and Wegefarth was willing 1 to help him.
The latter Went to Sregertown and remained
around„there. After awhile he' got into
Miller'i confidence. It seems that Miller
had received only $1,300, and he was dissat
isfied. , Wegefarth nursed him, and he
finally, to speak professionally, "squealed"
on the party. This was six weeks ago or
more, and. during the time which inter
vened between that and the arrest, Hague
was making every offort to secure Strger,
but as yet has been unable to slo so.
AS usual in such cases •there are very
minly rumors afloat, and it is somewhat
difficult to get at the truth of the matter,
but we believe the above to be a reliable
statement. We have drawn our informa
tion from what we regard as authentic
sources. Orierumor is that the mistress of
one of the•rebbers betrayed them.
Hague traced Steger to, Baltimore and
from thence to Omaha. From, some point
west he telegraphed to have the other par
ties arrested. This order was carried into
execution as , we have already seen. Some
conclude from this that ho has got Sfeger,
while - others think ho has given up the
Some of the money—we don't know how
-1 mnch—has been recovered, and more cer
rtificates of deposit secured. The robbers
had invested a great deal of the money in
real, estate and other property: Weide had
Eur Chased a hotel at, Akron, Ohio, paying
24,000 for if, and another had purchased a
,large farm, . _
The reward offered for thearrest of' „ these
felloirs was I-50,000. The Benninghoff boys
say they wilibe satisfied, if there is enough
recovered to pay the reward.

ISlontreal, Canada, stating that a man
named Gardner had been -surrendered un
der the extradition treaty, on the affidavit
of a Pittsburgh detective (officer Hague,)

should be - some inaccuracies. It gives us
great pleasure to state today that the dam
age sustained is very inconsiderable—forty
barrels of crude - oil in one of the car tanks.
one hundred barrels of residiunron one `of

age to the Works. the whole not exceeding

works- will resume .operations a day or
hence, with all damages repaired. We are
glad to report also that Mr. Caskey, re
ported missing, escaped without injury.
The unforttinate young man, James'flow

one of the proprietors, was very seriously
burned, as reported befotoond much anx

Owing to a misunderstanding of the Ipro

incorrect. Having since procured a copy
of the section of the act relating to the
matter, which we annex, we have corrected
our figures in accordance with its Pro
visions, and republish them for the benefit of
The law,' it will be seen, provides that
each warshall be entitled to two repre

at sixty; provides that the basis of
representation shall be ascertained by di

A Neat :Transaction
Tuesday evening brtween :oleven and
twelve o'clock a gentleman well known in
this•vicinity, who rooms above Abel's drug
store,- corner of Grant and Fifth street, had
entered the lower 'hall end was about to
''ascend the first flight of stairs, when he
was accosted by' a fellow who asked him
some-question which the gentleman failed
to distinct!, hear. Turning around to see
his interlocutor ho perceived another man
slanging at the front door who seemed to
be alcompanion. The first man made no
further remark, but quietly passed out
with his comrade. Tho gentleman at first
thought - nothing of. the occurrence, but
happening just then to put his hand into his
pocket discovered the absence of his purse.
He immediately wont out to the street and
saw the thierOs passing into an alley lead
ing into Long ' s court from Grant street.
Calling for the police several times, but
none of them appearing, he went •• back
again -and let the matter drop. Tao pocket
book, fortunately, contained but a small
amount of money, which, if a had action
deserves anything, was. deserved in this
case for threat manner of. its manipula
tion. No violence was offered, and nothing
was done to alarm the victim from first to
last.' The hall is a very narrow one, there
being not more than enough room for two
persons to pass each other, which helped
the operators in a great measure to carry
into execution their plan.

Tho South Pittsburgh Grant and Colfax
Club met in the Public &hail House at
eight o'olock on Tuesday evening, the Pres

After the reading and approval 'of•the
minutes of the previous meeting, the ye,

day night next at eight o'clock.
Tho proceedings were interspersed with
appropriate songs by the Glee Club, led by
Professor John Jones, and during the

added to the roll.
The meeting was quite spirited, and con
siderable enthusiasm was manifested dur
ing the, proceedings, especially during the
performances of the Glee Club. '
The meeting, all in all, was a very pleas
ant one, and indiCated that "South Pitt"

Water Supply for the drair.
A regular meeting of the Board of Mana
gers of the County Agricultural Society
was held yesterday at No.lo St. Clair street.
Present—Messrs, Parke, Jennings, James
Murdock, MoKelvy, McKee, Morton, An
derson, and Captain John Young, Jr.,
Judge Parke, on•behalfof the Committee
of the Whole to visit the Fair Grounds and
a.spertain the facts in regard to obtaining a
supply of water from the city for the next
fair, reported that the matter had been in
, vestigitted and that a plentiful supply of
water could be 'obtained, as the city, pipes
would be extended to that point before the
time for holding' the ildr.
On mot'on of Mr. McKee ' the Committee
`on Water, consisting of Messrs. Brush,
'Werner and Rees, was increased by the ad
dition of the names of Messrs. Parke and
Jennings, and were clothed with power to
act, '._lt will be the duty of this Committee
to 'confer with the city spthoritles and
make the best arrangements possible for

It will be held on the Oth, r 7th. Sth fixed
days of October, and the premium list, will
be ready for distribution on or before the
first of Sleptember.,
We'doubt if there is another city, town
or village in the Union where the equine
race are so misused as in- Pittsburgh. In
many instances drivers are employed and
entrusted with the care of horses, who
lave no more knowledge of the manner of
treating a horse than the monkey-has of
the use of the globe. They 'simply know
enough to put feed in the trough at stated
intervals, put the harness - on the horse and
hitch him to the wagon, cart or such other
vehicle as the business may 'require, and
-by afr iipplication of the whip set him
in mots n.- When they come to load the'
vehicl no matter whether they are haul
ing fea era or lead, they fill the wagon, or
whatev r it may be, to its utmost capacity.
and th n if the article to be transported
halve s to be sand, iron or some other
heavy material, and the horse is unable to
`Ull it 2
pull it, he is unmercifully beaten by his
ignorant driver. The grades on Many of
our streets are extremely heavy, while
others are light, yet it matters not to the
teapas er of Pittsburgh generally whether
he h to traverse a heavy Fade or dlight
one wi h his team, his load is all the, same,
and if is horses are overloaded. which ifr
usuall the case, the poor animals must be
onion beaten by the rnerciles.s driver.
A cs s 'of this character occurred in
South' Pittsburgh yesterday, in which
a , driver , abused- his horse ,to such
an extent as to cause the citizens in
the neighborhood to - complain to the
authorities. It appears that Orispein`
Dorer, driver for Voight, Ortman dt Spear,
flour merchants, had overloaded his team
and was beating -the horse over the head
with the butt of a big whip. Some one re
monstrated with him, but without effect.
Constable John Stemler was then notified
of the circumstance and repaired to where
Dorer was and found him still abusing the
horse. The officer endeavored to pursu,ade
him to stop it, but'was told to attend to his
own business. He then made information
before Justice Barker charging Darer with
cruelty toanimals. A warranl was issued
and the accused arrested and held for a
hearing. . ',.

An Audacious Attempt at Robbery.,
Tuesday evening, between eight and nixie
o'clock, a man stepped up to the front door
of the feed store' of Messrs. Adams ct Rush,
corner of O'Hara and Penn streets, and
taking a key out of his pocket, unlocked
It and went in. 'Soon after thd dodr on
O'Hara street was opened and three bar
rels of flour rolled out and arranged on the
pavement ready to be hauled off. Passing
out of the store and locking the doors
after him, the fellow walked away
toward the Allegheny Valley railroad
depot. By. this time the, attention
of a crowd of loungers on the opposite cor
ner was attracted to the singular move
ments of the chap, and two of them
started to follow him. Seeing them in
pursuit be quickly disappeared from VIM,
leaving no clue behind. It was ascertain
ed subsequently that an accomplice was
waiting on Pike street with a wagon to haul
the property away. The owners were no-
tified of the occurrence and had the flour
returned to' the atom

Rev. Y. Boyce, of Pittsburgh, has pc

R. E. Sellers & CO
This veteran and popular old drug house,
for many years established at the corner Of
Wood and Sedond street, it will be seen
by, advertisement will henceforth occupy
the elegant and extensive warehouse No.
45 Wood street, opposite the St. Charles
Hotel. If this' firm had removed to the
utmost limits of the enlarged city, its old
customers Would doubtless follow it, such
is the well-earned confidence reposed in R.
E. Sellers dr Co. by all who have dealt with
them for strict integrity—a quality more
important An a vender of drugs and medi
cines titan in any other branch of business,
its the verNlives or the people when sick
depend as well on the purity of the medi
cines as the skill of the physician and
nurse: We' allude to the upright and con
sciencions character of this firm, not for the
information of their old customers but by
way _of intimation to the trade generally,
that no house could be selected on which it
would be 'safer to depend at all times on
receiving exactly and in its utmost purity
.any medicine or drugorddied from it. - The
firm wfll not.deal in any of the proprietary
medicines of a doubtful reputation: only
those of standard excellence are to be found
In their stock. Mr. Sellers' own prepare.
tions enumerated in the advertisement have
acquired a national reputation, and as spe
cifics for coughs, worms, rheumatism, &c.,
are very popular throughout the country.
They aro also proprietors of the justly cel
ebrated and really quite remarkable blood
purifier, known as “Lindsay's Blood
Searcher," also the great tonic bitters of
the famous Bcerhave of Holland. We trust
the increased sales of this firm will corre
spond with its more eligiblelocation and
enlarged facilities for manufacturing and
Most. Bitten of the Present day that are
loudly puffed through the newspapers as
having great curative properties are vile
coinpounds and base impositions, contain
ing no medicinal virtues whatever, and are
really very poor whisky h.yeragai, and,
instead of acting as a stimulant and tonic,
have a tendency to weaken the stomach by
entirely destroying the coating. The public
should therefore be very cautious and pur
chase none but Robac7c's eirinach Bitters,
which have stood the •test as a remedial
agent for many years; and are really as
their name indicates, a stomach bitters and
not a beverage. They combine the proper
ties of the best tonic and a stimulant—a
laxative, an efficient and anti-bilious agent
and the beat stomachic know,n to the world,
and when' taken in conjunotiod with
back's Blood Alla, are the safest and surest
preventive against all billows derangements,
thoroughly regulating the whole system
and giving tone to the digestive organs.
The)i are highly recommended - as an in
vigorating tonic to mothers while nursing,
increasing the flow of milk, and for oonva
lescents, to restore the prostration which
always follows long-continued sickness,
they are tunsurpassed. No household
should oonaider themselves safe from the
ordinary maladies without these invaluable
mediaines. '-,They can be obtained of any
druggist. • TreF
