L. E Hamsher, of Bradford, who is in
terested in the United States Pipe Line
j and is a busine«s partner of ex Senator
Lewis Emery, says in regard to tho new
"It has been complete now almost to
Wilkesbarre. One is a four-inch and the
, other a five-iLch line. One is to be used
f.>r the transportatien of distillate and the
other to be crude. The locations of the
pump stations have not yet been decided
upon, as we intend to test the pumps and
find out just how tar we can force the oil
tbrongh the pipe before we put up the
j stations"'
"The connection from Titu-ville of Brad
j ford has been ah;, .-t completed. The first
pump station wilt be at Titusville, and the
other at Warren. The line is a go, and it
' will be a success."
Ex-Senator J. W. Lee, of Franklin, who
1 is in Pittsburg, and is one of the leaders of
the independent producers said: "We have
no fear of being unable to get all the oil
we want for the producer's lines. To read
the accounts of the purchases which the
; Standard agents have made it would ap
pear to an outsider that there was no more
territory left. By scanning a map, how
ever, their property is f< and to be only a
small proportion of the whole. There are
still lu.ooo barrels a day produced in tiie
Bradford field, and 30,000 barrels daily
north of Allegheny county, and we will
have our share of it."
The suit of Mrs. M. V. Taylor for SSO,
000 damages again-t the Panhandle rail
road tor injuries sustained on the Wash
ington biaueh of that road, while return
ing to her home last Juiy, was to come up
for trial in the Washington, Pa., courts.
Monday, but Mrs. Taylor died in Pitts
burg Tuesday.
Mrs. Tajlor will lie remembered as the
woman engagi d in the oil well supplj
business previous to the accident. f?he
ha>! offices !u the Fidelity Title and Trust
building in Pittsburg, and had, in addition
to having established a national reputation
through the notoriety given her by the
new.-papers, a» the only woman who had
the courage to embark in that peculiar
line of trade, built up A large and lucra
tive business.
Mrs. Taylor's first experience in the
supply busines- dates hack to abont the
time the oil excitement was at its height
in Washington county. She was then en
gaped us a bookkeeper tor one of the
leading oil well supply firms. ar.J. being a
shrewd woman, d:-*overed that there
was a shortage of ca.-mg in the country
aDd the demands for large pipe were in
creasing, and, having tnade a considerable
sum of money by sharp turns in the oil
market, decided at once to work a corner
in casing. So she set about baying up all
thfj casing in the country and in addition
got options on the entire output ol some of
the largest mills in the country, so that
she was in a position to dictate prices to
the trade. The prices were advanced be
fore the corner was broken to 75 per cent
over ihe price that prevailed before she
secured control. It is said that the deal
netted Mrs. Taylor close to $20,000.
After that transaction she engaged as
general agent for all kinds of oil well
supplies and would go into the field and
make contracts the same as agents of the
sterner sex, and when it came to talking
oil well supply she was a match for any
of the smooth-tongued agents.
The injuries to her spine, and from
which she has since been confined to a bed
of illness. were sustained 0:1 July 3 last,

It has often been remarked that a man
no v er realizes what a donkey and monkey
he can make of himself when in lore until
he hears his letters read out in court by
the plain. iffs lawyer in a breach of promise
case. Henry Thorn, .1 prominent young
man of Parkersburg. W. Va', had a taste
of this experience a few days ago. More
than 200 letters of hi- to the fair Kosetta
Riggs were offered in evidence, and most
of tilem were read. • My love, my pet, my
rose, my all!" is a sample of the fervid
style of rhetoric in which be began them.
His pet, his rose, etc., finally had to haul
Henry up before the bar of justice, and
after a six days' trial the jury rendered a
verdict of *1,500 in favor of Miss Rosetta.

Beaver Falls was ail agog last week
over the ingratitude of some o! the so-call
ed leading citizens and officials on account
of their refusal to pay the costs imposed
on Mrs Be>sie Thornburg in the courts at
Beaver last Monday. It will be remem
bered that some time ago she was arrested
and indicted for keeping a disorderly
house in tnat place. She and two other
women were lacked up in default of bail.
The week prior to the trial a large nnmber
nf witnesses were subpoenaed. It was the
talk of the town, and a great many citizens
bad very sick relatives in distant states,
wbich required an immediate and extend
ed visit. Something had to be done to
ke«j ".es,- men from appearing on the
»itii - 'and and being di»jrraceJ. It is
al!eg«1 that a city official and a prominent
bu-i'iess m.»n visited the woman at the
c< Lnty jail the Friday previous to the day
set i.>r the trial, and induced them to
plead guilty, giving as an inducement that
their fine and costs would be paid. The
succeeding Monday the women plead guilty
arid the result was that the heads of a
lumber of prominent families did n»t
suffer ill-grace lie v. M J Slippy, form
erly of Pittsbnrg.of the ME church of that
place, preached two sensational sermons
on the subject, and when the day came
for sentence made an eloquent and pathet
ic appeal before the court on behalf of Mrs.
Thornburg. He stated that the woman
had ncr-ed four children who were .-utfer
ing witn diphtheria when everybody re
fused to. He stated further that the wo
men was encouraged in her path of sin by
so called leaders ol society, and more sin
ned against than sinning. He a-ked that
she b- shown mercy and sentence suspend
ed. The appeal had it-> effect, and Judge
Wickhain suspended sentence, providing
all the costs in her case were paid. This
was a week ago and the w.,-man is still in
jail because her costs are not paid a< agreed
to. This is the wh> and wherefore of all
the ngly talk.
A Youngstown man recently sought a

"some crank had reformed him."
Postmaster Barton's commission as post
master of Mercer does not expire nntil a

the names ol nearly all the Democrat!; on

Armory Opera House.
One of the coming attractions at the
Opera House will lie "Oie Olson" of which
the Montreal lh raid says;
••Oie Olson" had been so much talked i .
about that naturally a good deal was ex- '
pected and all was realized. "Oie Olson" j ,
is>me of these plays that has been placed I
before the pnblic to amuse and at the
same titr.e make money. It has done this j
in the pas' and will iu the future, if man |
ast-r Salter keeps up the present standard
of his comj any To commence to criticize
the play as a play is out of the question,
but to say that it is away above the aver
age of such productions is only fair. Every
opportunity has been accepted where there i
is a chance for laughter making or thwse |
stage "pictures" so dear to the piofession.
Every liiale in the tour acts is capitably
worked up and recalls were as many as the
mo-c ambitious miad conla wish lor.
Many good things can be said of the
company. First comes the gentlemen
who played the title role. Mr. Henricks
plays "Oie Olson" well; his Swedish dia
lect being first rate. Ot course the part is
one any real good actor should succeed in:
it is what is called '■fat," bnt Mr. Hen
ricks deserves very much praise. There
is a little subrette in the conpany. Miss
Lottie Williams, who dances and sings to
such perfection tha* she won all hearts.
The children join Miss Williams in this
respect. Tiny little mites they are. Mar
gueritte and Clara Salter, and promise
much for tho lutnre. A quartette of
Swedish ladies sing some of the prettiest
music ever heard at the Royal. Miss St.
George Hussey needs no praise, her char
acter work has already made her name
one of the most prominent in this connec
tion. Miss Belle Francis deserves a word
of warm praise, and while the gentlemen
are good, special notice should be made of
Mr Frank Baker, who is also the stage
