Bow It Went
How one hundred dollars may be spent
quicaly, was illustrated in a festive way
by the "day's doings" of a too bibulous
Alleghenian, who commenced operations
Thursday morning. The holder of the
cash with his mutual friend succeeded
before sunset in disposing Qf thirty live
dollars of the_ amount. The remainder
was then placed in the hands of the
"friend" for security, but the security
was rather insecure, and when called
upon could only account for thirty dol
lars. Incensed at this betrayal, the man
of cash excitedly talked of law, going so
fat as to visit an Alderman's in the mat
ter. Before .proceeding with legal en
tanglements, however, his wrath was
cooled, and acting upon Alderman's ad
vice, he started away .to purchase a suit
of clothing, of which he stood in great
need. This design, slag was also frus
trated, for before he had accomplished
it the "friend" again crossed his path.
A reconciliation ensued, and the last of
the binds disappeared in commemora
tion of the renewal of friendship's tie.
Killed on the Railroad.
Yesterday morning between 10 and 11
o'clock, Alexander Lawton, aged 67
years,. formerly residing at No. 77,
Washington street, this oily, was killed
instantly on the Cleveland & Pittsburgh
railroad, near Wood,s Run. He was on
his way to visit his son-in-law, Mr. W.
.F. Richardson, who resides in McCttre
township, near where the accident oc
curred. He was walking on the railroad
track with a number of other persons,
when an extra train on the road men
tioned, was backing down and in turn
ing a short curve, the engineer seeing
persons on the track, blew the whistle
and rung the bell, when every person
left the track but Mr. .Lawson who, it
appears, was deaf and having his back
towards the approaching train, knew'
nothing of the danger he was in. A
young man at the side of the track
caught him by the coat sleeve andspoke
to him, but failed to draw his :attention
to the impending danger. .The engineer,
W. H. Johnson, seeing that the man was
not going to leave the track, reversed
his engine and threw open the throttle
valve, but notwithstanding the engine
was only moving at the rate of about
four miles an hour, he was so near that it
wasimpossible to stop the train before
the engine, No. 11, which was running
backward, had struck the unfortunato
man, knocking him down, and dragged
or shoved him about one hundred feet.
Alderman M.cMasters, in the absence
l of the Coroner, held an inquest on the
body last evening, when it was ascer
tained by a pest snortent examination that
the ribs of the deceased had been dis
located from the spine and the fracttired
ends had, penetrated the breast, causing
instant death. The jury returned 'a ver
dict of accidental death.

'ITTSIIITEGH GAZETTE : MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1889.
Fatal shook Fourteenth
Ward--A-11d, its t 4tae - Oase—Ceroaceii
A shooting affray occurred at Arthur e 's
Station, on the Plitaburgh and Connella
:vide railroad, at a bciardfig bottte, in the
Fourteenth ward, kept by Joseph Gant,
Saturday , evening, between seven and
tight o'clock, resulting in the death of
JamesShovlin, one of the boarders. 'lt
appears from the statement of the man
Who did the shooting, John Grimm, that
he and Shovlin have for some .'time past
been paying addresses to a young lady
sad that the lady had shown a decided
preference for Grimm, ' on account of
which Shovlin thretened to whip
Grimm ,We first opportunity. Grimm
hearing of this procured a revolver and
repaired to Shovlin's boarding house,
where a fight ensued between the
parties, Shovlin seizing Grimm by
the throat, and being the stronger man
of the two was choking him, when the
latter drew his revolver and fired two
shots, one of which entered the abdomen
of Shovlin, from the effects of which he
died 'about twelve hours afterward: After
shooting his antagonist, Grimm left the
house and went home, and from thence
came to the lookup and gave himself up
stating what he had done. Yesterday
morning on being informed that Shoylin
was dead, Chief Hague made informa
tion before the Mayor, charging Grimm
with Murder'. t‘
In the absence of Coroner Clawson,
Alderman Donaldson held an iimuest
on the body of the detteased yesterday
morning, when the following testimony
was adduced: '
Joseph Gant, sworn.—Am proprietor
of the boarding house in the Fourteenth
ward where the affray occurred. The
first I knew of The difficulty between
Grimm and Shovlin • was Friday night
last. Some of Jack's ichildren told my
children that Grimm , and Shovlin were
going to fight about a dog. Saturday
Grimm told me that some of my boarders
had been talking about him and he want
ed to come to my house and settle the
matter. I told him I would not allow
him to raise a foss at my house. He said
he would not raise any fuss. He came
np between seven and eight o'clOck Sat
urday, and staid in the room about
ten or fifteen minutes and then went to
the kitchen. He bad not been out of the
room more than five or ten minutes be
fore I heard two reports of a pistol..• The
shooting took place in the kitchen. I
went in and found Shovlin standing up
and he had hold of Grimm by the neck.
•I caught hold • of and separated them, and
told them they mtist not fight in my
house. Shovilu said "I have got it."
He stood tip four or five minutes and
then sat down. He . afterwards got up,
went _out and laid down on a plank,
where he remained half an hour and
then came in. No one was present dur
ing the shooting but my wife and three
Mrs. Jane Gant., sworn.--Grim came to
our house about dinner time Saturday,
and asked for Shovlin and then wen t
away. Saturday night Shovlin was in
the kitchen, when grimpi came in and
told him he heard he was going to lick
hind. Shovlin replied, "yes. now or any
other time." They clinched, Shovlin
taking Grimm by the throat; in a mo
ment afterward the pistol was fired
twice. One of the balls entered the floor
about six feet from where they were
standing. After the shooting, Grimm
left the kitchen' and went out ofthe back
Barbara Gant, sworn—When Grimm
came n the kitcheii Saturday night
Shovlin said "I heard you were up here
at diuner time looking for me," Grimm
replied "I•am no fighting man, and do
not Want to fight you," Shovlin then
called Grimm a liar and Grimm called
Shovlin another; Shovlin then caught
Grimm by the throat; Shovlin was stand
ing near the • table when he caught
Grimm. He was choking Grimm , when
the Shot was fired. After the shooting
Shovlin said "I can fight Mai yet."
Dr. Fir. IL Daly, sworn—Was sent for
to attend James Shovlin Saturday eye
ing; was informed he had been shot; ar
rived at the house about eight o'clock;
found Shovlin lying on the floor in the
sitting room; he naked with me freely;
I examined his person and found a wound
from a pistol ball in his abdomen near
the umbilicus; on turning him over I
detected the ball lodged between two of
the laterite processes of the spine; ex
tricted the ball, found it tobe a cartridge
ball from a' pistbli dressed the wound
and left directions as to 'bow he should
be cared for. Was informed this morn
ing that be had died about half past
nine. Made a post mortem examination
about five hems after death. On cutting
into the abdomen foundthe eavity filled
with blood, and found that the ball had
perforated the intestines and alio the
ascending versa caves which is the largest
vein in the body. The doctor gave a de
tailed description of the wound and its
consequences. and concluded by stating
that' it was the cause of the death of de-:
Tbe - jary after hearing the evidence
returned the following verdict: " •
'That Jamis Shovlin came to his death
from the effects, of. a. leaden ball' bred
from a pistol, and that the pistol was fired
while in the hands of John Grimm."
- Grimm is in the lock-up and will probe
ably have a hearing this morning. He
is sing man of industrious habits , and
sofa as we have been able .to learn, has
always borne a good character.

corner stone, on that day. ,
In addition to-the Freemasons, all the

will participate in the procession—and be
welcomed at the festival ground. •
Nlcolion and Concrete Pavements.
The Cincinnati fathers are considering
the propriety of trying new kinds of
pavements on the streets of that city,
projects for improvement having been
broached contemplating an outlay from
the treasury of over a quarter of mil
lion of dollars, of which amount about
ninety thousand ,dollars it is intended
shall come back to:the treasury in assess
ments. Considerable discussion has
arisen as to the merits of the different
kinds of paveiments, Nieolson and con
crete being proposed. It was contended
that' the Nicolson had not been fairly
tried, it being necessary to warrant
proper judgment of the durability of that
kind of pavement that only thoroughly
seasoned and thoroughly tarred pine be
well put down. It was stated that in New
York a boulder weighing eighteen tone
had been hauled over ihe Fisk concrete
pairement without making an impression
upon it. The oost of this pavement, as
stilted authoritatively, it 33,50 per square
yard if laid on the boulders, and it if
the boulders are removed; depth &X in
ches. It is likely the Cincinnatti Coun
cil will direct an experiment with the
concrete before paving extensively with
it. A contractor said he would agree,
giving bond and 'security, to pave ten
squares with the Flak contrete and guar
antee that it will last ten years.
The Committee having in charge the
prepaiations fbr the Humboldt celebra
tion on the , Allegheny commons on
Tuesday, have been treated with re
markable courtesy by the gentlemen
with whom they have been brought in
content. Especially has this been the
case as regards Mr. J. C. Patterson of the
Park Commission; Major E. S. Wright,
Warden of the Western Penitentiary,
and Mr. Chas. Davis the I Allegheny City
Engineer. These gentlemen have done
every thing in their power to ausist the
Committee in making the arrangements
i for Tuesday thorokghly complete.

The Humboldt Centennial Executive
Met on Saturday night and transacted
most of the bueinessthat remained to be
done: The Committee on Speakers
ported that Mr. Wm. D. Moore would
liver the oration in English on the 14th.
The sub-Committee reported that the
special train would not start until one
o'clock, in order to give ample time for
the orations to be delivered on the Alle
gheny bcfmmons. Mr. P. R. Mertz,
the Treasurer of the Association, agreed
to undertake the management of the pic
nic finances, an undertaking which will
be sure to give him plenty of annoyance
and trouble, for the money matters of so
large a gathering are as complicated as
the most ardent fiscal enthusiast would
desire. The Marshals of the various di
visions have chosen theig staffs, four
bands have been engaged instead of only
three, as at first proposed for 'the proces
sion, and theso, with such bands as any
of the Societies may engage to accompa
ny them, will make music sufficient.
Major Swearingen, of the Committee on
Procession, has furnished us with the
following facts concerning the parade
and its formation :
First Division—John Selfertb, Marshal,
forms on Grant street, right resting on
Second Division—John Nasser, Mar

Third Division—A. W. Kredel, Mar

Route—Procession to move at 835, A. is.
—down Grant street to seventh avenue,
down Seventh avenue to Smithfield,
along Smithfield to Fifth avenue, down
Filth avenue to Market, along Market
and Sixth, (St. Clair). and across Sus
pension bridge, up 1 Federal street to
North avenue, along North avenue to
Monument. After the ceremonies the
procession will re-form and move out of
the Park to Ohio avenue, along Ohio
avenue to Cedar avenue, and by Ander
son street, across the bridge to Hand
street, up Hand street to Liberty street,
where the Procession will embark on
cars for Friendship Grovei near Millvale
Station on the Pennsylvania Central rail
Citizens residing or doing business on
the line of the 'route are respectfully re
quested to display flags and decorate
their houses. I
On motion of Major Swearingen the
Executive Committee decided to march
in a body on foot in the procesaion.
A handsome tribune for the accommo
dation of about seven hundred ladies
has been erected within sight and hear
ing of the corner stone ceremonies.
