The Fall of the Bastile.
On .Sunday last the French nation cele
brated the centenuial of the lall of the
Ttastile —a crash which resounded through
out France and Europe, and. indeed, the
entire civilised world, like the crack of
doom. It was an epoch-making event —a
death and a birth at once. It was one of
a series of events which gave distinction to
the year 1789— a distinction which is des
tined to be as enduring as time. These
events wcro the meeting of the States-
General on May 5, after an interval of one
hundred and seventy-five years; the fall ot
the Bastile on July 14; the "St. Bartholo
mew of Property," as it is called, on
August 4; the return of the Court to Paris,
under the compulsion of the mob, October
5, and the abolition of the old provincial
divisions on December 23.
There can be no two opinions as to the
importance which properly attaches to the
fall of the Bastile. Originally known as
the Castle of Paris, and dating as far back
as the middle of the fourteenth century, it
had for many generations been used as a
prison for persons ol the better class, such
as noblemen, authors, savans, priests —
persons who had come under the dis
pleasure of the court, or who had become,
from some cause, an inconvenience to men
in place and power. Once within its walls
there was but small chance of escape. Sad
stories were told of the sufferings of its in
mates. Its gloom} appearanco was
supposed to be but a feeble indication
of the horrors of the interior. It
■was a frowning terror— a hateful and hated
monument of irresponsible tyranny. It
had been long marked out for destruction;
and all that was wanted by the Parisian
populace to make good their purpose was
the power and the opportunity. At the
call of Camtnillc Desmoulins, who charged
the King with meditating the destruction
of the patriots, the mob arose, rushed to
the Invalides and possessed themselves of
arms; and blood having been shed in a col
lision with a German regiment, and the
necessarry stimulus having by this means
been obtained, they rushed upon the hated
tortres.- DeLaunap. the Governor, was
compelled to surrender; but the besiegers
showed no mercy either to him or to his
subordinates. The 14th of July, it has
been truthfully said, was the second of the
great days of the Revolution The su
preme authority of the assembly had been
established by the events which followed
quickly on the meeting of the States Gen
eral; and now the fall of the Bastile had
established the sovereignty of the people.
Tdk Citizens ol Johnstown held au in
dignation meeting on Monday, and passed
a long string ol resolutions of which the
following are samples:
£crolred, That the litizcus of Johns
town and vicinity respectfully, yet earnest
ly, request that the Innd contributed for
the relief of the flood sufferers in the Cone
maugh valley be as speedily as possible
distributed t« money directly to the peo
ple, and that all purchases, contracts and
ex pen set to be paid for oat of this fund
Jfewrfmf. That IftlsJjoarding up of this
kind to meet
will materially diminish its usefulnes!r>«Ml
only result in delaying to a more distant
time the restoration of homes, of business,
of industry and of confidence. It will do
more good in the hands of the people now
than at any time hereafter.
RettArol. That we repudiate as insulting
to the manhood and intelligence of our
dticens (now that the avenues of trade are
opened up), the imputation that they can
not and will not wisely and economically
disburse any funds placed in their hands,
and because of this imputation, the arro
gant assumption that grardian* must su
pervise oor expenditures, control onr dis
bursements, purchase our supplies and
make oar contracts.
Bcsolcfd. That of the statements imput
ed to his excellence Governor Beaver,
that a million and a half of dollars had al
ready been expended in Johnstown and
vicinity,have no foundation,in fact it is the
strongest possible argument that expend
ing relief funds in contracting for build
ings, quarter-master and commissary sup
plies is not a wise, judicious or economical
way of disbursing such funds when the or
dinary sources of supply are opened up.
Only by gross extravagance and careless
ness could puch a sum have been used here
and the people hare received no adequate
return for the expenditure of so large an
Ax Ohio bank which employed one man
as cashier, teller and liookkccpcr. at a sal
ary of SI,OOO per annum, is now minus
cashier, teller, bookkeeper and *50,000.
At a fair salary he would have considered
the situation worth more than the funds.
A SMALL force of I". ,S. regulars have
been doing good service at Johnstown
since the flood, in building bridges and
making roads. Their work was of the
hardest and most disairreealde kind, and
they have won high praise for their ser
vices. Their pay is sl3 per month, or 43
cents per day with lioard.
Ore of our State Legislators, 11. P.
Brown, of Beaver, has successfully ap
pealed for protection to the of our
constitution which exempts a legislator
froui civil process while on his way to or
from a session of the General Assembly.
He had. at the opening of the last session,
contracted for board during the session
with parties in Harrisburg Not finding it
satisfactory after a lew weeks, lie paid up
and went to another hotel. Suit was
brought for boarding during the time con
tracted for. and Brown was served with the
papers as he was leaving Harrisburg for
his home. Claiming the constitutional
privilege, the court sustains hiui aud the
original proceedings are declared void.
A Much-Married "Bach."
Engineer Bi>>ell, of the P. A W. R. R.,
who was killed by the late accident near
Akron. Ohio, formerly boarded inZelieno
ple. and was well known there He pass
ed himself off as a '-bach," but it seems
that he had two wives and was engaged to
au Allegheny, Pa., woman at the time of
The Cleveland Prefix of Friday says:
"Bissell had a wife in Miitou. Pa.. t»
whom he had been married in 18CG, just
after coming out of the war, and had two
children, a boy and a girl, nearly grown
The body was taken from Akron Monday
evening by Mrs. Eissell. of Newton Falls,
also wife of the dead engineer. She was
accompanied by her step-father, whose
name is Carlisle, and her brother from
Kent. All Bissell's effects wcro turned
over to her. She said she had been mar
ried to hiin six years, and that they had
one child, a cripple, aged five. When
Coroner Sargeant's party reached Newton
Falls. Wednesday, the funeral procession
was just coming out of the cemetery.
Going into the home of Bissell they were
introduced to the mourners and soon be
gan to break the details of their errand.
It seems that au Allegheny friend of the
Bissell family in Milton had been tele
graphed, Monday, to g« on and take
charge of the body. After coming here
and linding it gone he went to Xewton
Fall.- and on Tuesday went to the Carlisle-
Bissell residence and demanded the re
mains. lie let out the secret of a dual
domestic equipment, but being somewhat
in liquor his demands were not given any
attention, especially since he showed no
papers. lie left Xewton Fall's before the
coroner's part)' had arrived," but he had
prepared the family for something. "I
always said there was something wrong
about John," said Mrs. Bissell's brother-in
law to Coroner Sargent. "I told her that
I thought he was playing her false, but
she never would listen to me, and finally
I quit talking about it." The coroner
showed his papers anil Maxwell presented
the certificate of marriage to the Milton
wife and showed letters written to the Mil
ton family. All were conclusive. The
The Xewton Falls Mrs. Bissell, withoti>
much ado. gave her consent to have the
body dug up, and it was soon on the train
coming back to Akron with Coroner Sar
gent and Maxwell Parks.
. "The cap sheaf of all the sensations
came Wednesday at the funeral, when an
Allegheny widow turned up as n mourner,
saying that Bissell, who boarded at her
house when he stopped in Allegheny, was
to marry her next Friday. She seemed
quite heart broken when she found one
widow already, and left on the train on
which the coroner and his party came to
Xewton Falls. Had not his death sudden
cut him short in his marrying career, Bis
sell would have had, on Friday, three in
teresting and trusting wives, with no tell
ing where his marrying exploits would
have ended. When Mrs. Bissell,
Xewton Falls, was here Monday, after the
body, the fact was mentioned to her that
the train men ou Bissell's train thought
him single. "Yes, that's so," she replied,
'•few railroad men knew that John was
married, for he'd been a bachelor so long
when he married me." The poor woman
didn't know what a Lotbario-like'bachelor
hood it had been."
Fire at Freeport.
Guckenheimcr's smallest distillery at
Freeport was burned to the ground on
Saturday evening. It is located on the
Butler county side of Buffalo creek. The
firm's largest distillery is on the Armstrong
county side about a mile distant. To
each establishment there is connected a
bonded warehouse. Close besilc the
building that was burned is a warehouse
containing $500,000 worth of whisky. It
was the imminent danger of this vast res
ervoir of liquor that caused the telegram
to lie sent to Acting Chief Jones of the
Allegheny Fire Department, at 7:15
o'clock, asking for aid. The fire broke
out shortly before 7. Chief Jones did re
markably quick work in leading the Co
lumbia engine aud a wagon full of hose
upon a gondola car at Madison avenue. A
start was made at 8:30 and Freeport was
reached in exactly 40 minutes. It is a
distance of 28 miles.
The distillery, which was known as the
Montrose building, was a three-story frame
structure 75 feet long and 40 wide. Its
destruction was complete in an hour and a
half. The great light %as to save the big
government warehouse. Only a twenty
foot alley divided it from the distillery.
Robert O'Brien was the first to come to
the aid of the night watchman. They
quickly broke open the hose house, hut it
was full of flame aud the hose was already
melted and the chemical fire extinguisher
A small line of hose was borrowed from
the railroad and an inch stream was
thrown on the blazing distillery. That of
course was of no consequence. A bucket
brigade formed a line down to the creek,
and in this way the front of the warehouse
1 was kept wet. Still its cornices and wood
work were charred. Citizens generally
turned in to prevent such a monstrous
conflagration as would have resulted had
the 13.000 barrels of whisky taken fire,
aud they were only sure they had accom
plished it when the engine arrived from
Loss, $35,00Q; insurance, $30,000.
End of the Homestead Trouble
The trouble at Homestead, Allegheny
county, brought about by a reduction of
wages, made by the owners of the steel
mills there, Carnegie, Phipps <t Co., and
the "strike" of the employees was settled
on Saturday last, and both the firm and
the laborers are well pleased < .er the re
sult. So change is made in the scale for
the converting, blooming, annor-plate and
basic departments. Some reductions are
made in the 23. 33 and 110-inch mills. All
the old foot notes and extras stricken from
the sliding scale are reinserted in the new
one. It will be based on the selling price
of billets. The workers believe they have
won a great victory. Duriug the strike
the firm attempted to employ non-union
men, but the union men would not allow
them to enter the* gates of the mill, and
the Sheriff of the county and his posse
were also prevented from entering. It
.was a bitter struggle, and one that came
very near resulting in bloodshed.
The release of John L. Sullivan by" i
Xashville judge after his arrest last Thurs
day was a judicial outrage for which there
ran be neither justification nor excuse.
Governor Lowric, of Mississippi, had
telegraphed to Governor Taylor, of Ten
nessee, that Sullivan was a fugitive crimin
al, charged with prize fighting, and asked
that he be arrested and held until the
necessary requisition papers could be for
Requests of this kind from the Governor
of one State to the Governor of another
are common and necessary. Compliance
with them is demanded by ordinary courte
sy and is essential to the due administra
tion of justice. It is perfectly proper
and regular to arrest the fugitive and hold
him a reasonable time to enable the de
manding State to present its case. It is
done every day.
Sullivan's hasty release without giving
the Mississippi authorities any chance to
submit their ease was a most extraordinary
and flagrant departure from this establish
Harni'm s great show, accompanied by
800 persons, will soon sail for Europe.
Three large steamers are said to be neces
sary to carry the institution.
Retail Licenses in Allegheny Co.
Ou Monday of this week Judges Ewing
and Magee. of Allegheny county, consid
ered the applications of the retail li
quor sellers for a revision of the license
list, and the letter from Judge White.
Then they went over the testimony t.iken
before Judge "White, and is taken for grant
ed that many of the retail licenses refused
by him will be granted.
Judge White's letter is as follows:
Sewickly, July 13, 1889.
JCDGKs Ewik*<; A.\i> Magke :
When 1 held the License Court I be
lieved, aud still believe, the retail and
wholesale acts of 1887 were intended to
restrain and regulate the sale of vinous
aud spiritous, malt and brewed liquors, as
declared in the title of the retail act, and
that they should be construed together.
For that reason I refused applications lor
wholesale and bottlers' licenses when the
evidence satisfied me they were unneces
sary oy the business had been, or would lie,
conducted in an improper manner —es-
pecially and mainly as establishments for
selling by the quirt or gallon, in bottles,
jngs and buckets to the neighborhood.
These I regarded n- little more than retail
houses, although within the letter <> the
wholesale act. Wholesale establishment-
I have always understood were such as
sold to those engaged in the retail
business. Those wholesale and bottling
houses which sell by the quart, jug and
bucket to the neighborhood, I believe
cause more intemperance and greater evils
than regular retail houses.
But it seems from newspaper extracts of
the recent decision of the Supreme ('ourt
(I have not seen the full opinion) I wa
mistaken in my construction of the whole
sale act and mistaken on the rule on
which I acted. Ia the case of the whole
salers and bottlers, it is said, the Quarter
Sessions has no right to tro beyond threr
1. Is the applicant a citiieu of the Tin
2. Is he of good moral character?
3 Is he of temperate habitsf
The Court has no discretion as to the
necessity of the house, the character of
the locality, the extent of the business, the
nv J of conducting it. or the class of
customers, since that decision, and in pur
suance of it. all who were refused, for
cither wholesale or bottling, have obtained
licenses. This materially changes the
condition of things and defeats the main
object of limiting the number of retail li
censes. AYhile I do not feel I made any
serious mistakes, yet. had I supposed that
all of those would secure license. I should
certainly have granted more retail licenses.
Greatly limiting the number of retail li
censes and granting license to all whole
salers and bottlers, is manifestly unjust t<
many retail applicants. It is applying
one rule to retailers and another to whole
salers, without, so far as I can see. any
good reason for the difference.
If the Quarter Sessions had no discre
tion as to wholesalers and bottlers, the dis
cretion as to retailers amounts to nothing.
It results only iu increasing the number of
quart and jug establishments, without re
stricting the traffic or diminishing the
evils of intemperenee.
I deem it proper to make these remarks
in view of the applications next year. If
it is so understood that the rigid rule
with reference to retail licenses will be
continued the Court will be overrun with
applications for wholesale and bottling li
censes, and the evils of excessive drinking
will be as great, if not greater, than in the
worst days under the special act of 1872.
Better have a thousand retail houses than
a thousand quart and jug establishments.
As I have made arrangements to leave
next Monday to be absent some time. 1
submit the whole matter to your judg
ments, and will be satisfied with whatever
you do. I have only two suggestions to
offer, if you conclude to grant more li
1. Do not limit consideration to the pc
titioners in this application.
2. Give preference to those who have
hotels or restaurants.

The Kirk Reunion.
Mr. and Mrs. Wesley Monks, of Middle
sex Tp., and their son, Rey. V. A Monk-,
attended the reunion of the Kirk family ii.
Sharon yesterday. Mrs. Monks' maiden
name was Kirk and she is one of the twelve
children of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Kirk, ol
Sharon, the semi-centennial of whose land
ing in America was celebrated yesterday
There are 145 members in the family
connection, including those who have lie
come members by marriage. The youngest
lis a great-grandchild of a few weeks of age,
and the oldest is Mr. Arthur Kirk, of Pitts
burg. the well-known Scotchman. Owing
to illness the golden-wedding celebration
of Mr. and Mrs Kirk, Sr., could not be
held at the appointed time a few years ago.
To make up for the disappointment of the
children aud grandchildren the semi-cen
tennial celebration referred to was planned.
Mrs. Kirk is iu her 85th year and Mr. Kirk
is in his SGth year. They landed in Amer
ica with six children in the year 1839.
They came directly to Pittsburg, and re
sided there for 15 years. Mr. Kirk engaged
in the work of warp-making with the Eagle
Mills, and was one of the energetic pion
eers iu Pittsburg's industry.
After retirement from an active mill life,
Mr. Kirk moved to Sharon and has for over
thirty years been identified with the in
terests of that city. He is quite a proper
ty-holder, and his own residence is located
in one of the most attractive portions of
the place. One son, Mr. George Kirk, who
was general manager of the celebration,
makes his home with his aged parents.
There are twelve children, six boys aud six
girls, all of whom were present at the re
union. These are Arthur Kirk, of Pitt,
burg; Mrs. Ellen Love, of Sharon; James
Kirk, of Davenport, la.; David Kirk, of
Bradford; Mrs. Elizabeth Allen, of Nebras
ka; Mrs. Jane Monks, of Butler county;
Wm. Kirk, of Parkersburg, W. Va.; Mrs.
Mary Crowl, of Sharon; i)r Edward Kirk,
of Philadelphia; Mrs. Ann Ashton, ofSha
ron; Mrs. Margaret Tribby, of Allegheny,
and George Kirk, of Sharon. Two of the
children, Dr. Edward Kirk, of Philadel
phia, and Mr. George Kirk, of Sharon, arc
Thk county commissioners of the Stale
who met in convention last summer at
Erie will assemble again on September 25
in Allentown. Their meeting last sum
mer was for the purpose of discussing fi
nancial matters pertaining to the duties of
their office and to dralt a revenue bill pro
viding for a new system of of taxation.
The bill drawn up by them was a carefully
considered instrument embodying all the
most approved ideas throughout the
Union. As contrasted with our present
rattle-trap laws it was perfection itself.
Yet it received but slight attention from
our Legislature, and another patch was
put upon tlio old system. If the commis
sioners will resolve themselves into a com
mit tee of the whole to secure careful con
sideration of their bill by the thoughtful
minds of the State, and secure influential
advocates, they will be turning their ef
forts to good account.—Wilkesßarre /.'<<■-

XK\v YORK, July 16. —The reference as
to whether the new method of execution
by electricity i> a cruel aud unconstitu
tional one. was continued to-day. Dr.
Frederick Patterson, who claimed to be a
specialist of nervous diseases, testified
that in some cases, when he had cut the
dogs open after they had been experiment
ed upon by Expert Brown, the heart beat
for 30 minutes. This, he said, was no in
dication of life. In these experiments some
of the dogs seemed to suffer pain. This
was not noticeable with those performed
on iu Edison's laboratory. He was confi
dent that the actual resistance could be
measured at any moment.
J. 11. Noble, an expert connected with
the Westinghousc Electric Company, was
recalled. He related his experience with a
dynamo generating a force of 1.050 volts,
the same as that on the State execution
machine. One day, while tending the
machine, hi' accidently fell and his hands
came in contact with the two poles. The
re<ult was that he received a severe shock.
His hands were burned and the skin came
off, leaving them sore for weeks.
The only physical effect discerned
was extreme nervousness for several
hours after. In the opinion of Mr. Noble,
the Westinghouse machine might be in
creased with safety 200 or 300 volts. Be
yond that it would be dangerous, lie did
not know of any electrical current that
could be considered absolutely fatal. Mr.
Noble said that, from experiments he had
tried, instead of the resistance lowering
with a series of measurements it increased.
P. W. Jones, General Manager of the
Postal Telegraph Company, described a
number of experiments which he bad
made. the result of which was to show that
theeffcet of an electric shock upon the hu
man body cannot be estimated in advance
with any certainty.
