value of real estate security.
N'ew .lorsej'* Wondrous Charters
The news of theday informs us that the
Amalgamated Copper Co., capital $75-
000.000, and the I*. States Flour Milling
Company, capital $25,000,000, the Amer
ican Alkali Co. $30,000,000, the Rubber
goods manfacturing Co $25,000,000, the
Federal Sewer Pipe Co. $25,000,000, and
hundreds of other companies and alleg"
ed companies have lately been incorpo
rated at Jersey City. Trenton and oth
er points in the State of New Jersey.
Almost every day we see similar state
ments and so it is not out of place to re
view in a lump what has been been done
by way of making charters for specula
tive and "promoter" purposes. Most of
these chartered enterprises are rated as
"industries." Some of them are noth
ing more than a capitalized prospectus.
That is certainly not a trust, or consoli
dation of substantial firms or corpora
tions. Yet the public has been biting,
or asked to bite, at ali sorts of industrial
shadows, sometimes based on nothing
more than a circular promising extrav
agant dividends. Promoters have never
been busier than since the first of last
year. The figures tell a striking story.
In the last fifteen months amalgamated
companies have been capitalized at st.
1H5.4H6.7U0. The first two months of the
present year brought forward forty-two
separate enterprises, capitalized at =f 1,-
1<M>,300,000. Last month added S4HO,-
(HMt'(Hh') more in authorized capital.
The total capital of all the manufac
tures in the I'nited States in IH9O was
$fi,539,81»7,:W5, or but a third larger than
the industrial capitalization in the last
vear and a quarter. Duly a comparative
ly small fraction of the manufacturers
of the country have gone intothesecom
binations vet thecapitalization has reach
ed into billions. It is estimated that in
four billions of the new industrials the
real value is not over one billion. Of
course there is a Hurry when it becomes
necessary to size npsuch paper emblems
with actual ca-!i Beyond doubt some
of the industrials are sound property.
The essential point, as in all business
affairs, is to discriminate prudently be
tween real values and the mushroom
devises of tricky or visionary promoters.
That all speculators will be cautious is
past hoping for Nor will they lack
temptation, especially in Hush times.
As far as the industrial development of
this country is concerned it is rapid and
promising in every legitimate sense.
The future of American manfacturing
is not in doubt. At the same time cap
italizing industrials at the rate of $400.-
(>f>o.ooo a month suggests an unthinking
rush, with a panic lurking behind. A
deluge is quite different from a plenti
ful and fruitful rain. Industrials with
out solid industry as a foundation can
be boomed until the excitable invest
their money, and then comes a collapse.
Wall street is neither better or worse
than in former days.nor have industrials
or trusts changed the nature of its risks
Those who stake all there are reason
ably certain to be wiped out. and those
who invest blindly anywhere are sure
to come to grief
There it some hope, however, in the
fact that the Stock Exchange of Xew
York purposes taking cognizance of
those industrials which can show no
substantial property to warrant their
existence. This is well, because we are
on the high road to prosperity which
not only makes money plentiful, but
men saguine and reckless. Over-specu
lation may bring on another panic all to
soon. It is well for the press at large to
warn people to beware of industrial
stocks. If you buy water jon are only
throwing money in the face of a cy
clone. The best thing to do is to give
prompter schemes a wide berth
ALL sorts of rumors regarding the
formation of a gigantic iron, coke and
steel trust were published last week,
but the sale by Andrew Carnegie to his
partners of his interests in the steel
ni'lls for fifty millions in cash and a
hundred millions in 5 per cent, bonds
seems to be all there was of it. Frick
is President of the new company.
POLITICAL.

the purpose of endeavoring to decide
the confiding claims. Col. Quay ex
pected to remain there for a week or ten
days and then go to Avalon, N. J.. as
the guest of State Senator Becker.
Gov. STONE says he intends to veto
all appropriations to hospitals and other
institutions which have not been re
ceiying State aid heretofore. Butler
people hope he will not include the
Butler County General Hospital in the
list of those he will cut off. No better
reason can be advanced for the appro
priation to our hospital than that it has
never received State aid. It was built
at a cost of SISOOO and has been main
tained for two years past by private sub
scription, and if there is an institution
in the Commonwealth deserving of aid
it is the Butler Hospital.

The Iteilsteiu ( a>o
Bertha Augusta Ii«-ilstein was placed
on trial in one of the Allegheny County
Courts last Monday for the murder of
her mother. Mary Margaret ha Beilstein
on Sunday. October 2nd, last.
The Commonwealth proved the cir
cumstances of the case that <lay. ami
rested. On Tnesday the defense was
opened by Attorney Burleigh, who said
the defense would be insanity.
Miss Bertha took the stand and told
her remarkable story as calmly as
though she was not at all interested.
She and her mother were great spirit -
nlists. Her father had died suddenly,
she visited a medium in Chicago and
was informed that he was lonesome and
wished for the company of herself and
mother, her father's face often appeared
to her. and she was commanded by the
spirits to take her mother s life and her
own. . ~
On the fatal Saturday night, she said,
she disrobed about 'J o'clock and lay
down on her l>ed.
"What did you do first'.' she was
"I went to my trunk and laid out the
clothes in which I desired to be buried.
'Whose life did you then intend to
take?"
"My own. .
She said she did not sleep at all ."she
put the laudanum in a glass, and lay
down again, waiting to take it. Her s
storv again l>ecome graphic as it led to
the hour of the murder. Every syllable
was distinct and audible all over the
room. Her voice, in spite of her in
juries and sickness, was strong and
clear, retaining many of the fine quali
ties it had when she sang in the choir of
Trinity Lntheran church, Stockton
avenue. Allegheny.
I knew." she told the jury, that at
some time there would be a command,
an order, couie to me to take mother s
life When I heard the clock stnek 1
ro«e to take the poison. I was pouring
some brandy i-.to the laudanum when
the bottle fell from my hands. My arms
stiffened and I knew it was the order 1
went to the dresser in mother's room,
got the revolver, and began.
There was intense silence in the court
room The girl told this part of the
story with the same appearance of com_
•posure with wliitfi she told the rest of
her startling story. She went on:
"I remember shooting mother once
and discharging the weapon once upon
my own body. From that time until
long afterwards, about a month, I re
member nothing of what happened.
This last statement, that she remem
bered nothing of. the other two shots,
or three, fired at her mother and the
three others nut into her own body;
nothing of taking the laudanum and
nothing of going into her mother s room
or opening the door when Rev. Mr. l>ru
l»eck knocked had a great effect in the
court room. To many it was an absolute
surprise. It made her, it* the jury ac
cepts her statements, at once irrespon
sible for what she did and f..r all she
told about the affair afterward to ber
relatives, the physicians and her friends
until a month after the shooting.
"What made you do it, Bertha';
gently asked Mr. Burleigh, and she
answered steadily and simply:
"I did it because I thought it was my
duty." There was no bravado in her
manner, no defiance in her voice. She
was modest and womanly in every \\a\,
yet apparently unaffected by any fear
of consequences or horror of her crime.
A more remarkable recital was probably
never heard in any court room. In fur
ther Explanation of her motive, and the
power which drove her to the killing of
her mother, she said: _
"The moment I dismissed the thought
of killing mother from my mind, my
father appeared at night and I s:i\\
other things. During the time lietween
my arrival home and the day I destroy
ed her life he appeared 1". or 20 times '
Yesterday Mis« •Beilsteins cross-ex
amination was finished, and she stoo l
the ordeal very well, and showed a. re
markable memory for details. Several
of her relatives and neighbors were also
on the stand that day.
lOast View Fruit Farm.
MAY (>, 1 89' J.
As stated in my last 1 propose to take
each species of fruit trees separately, and
now i take will the apple the noblest of
all our fruits —and as 1 have stated the
farmer should propagate his own fruit
trees I shall commence with the seed.
Although it is not always necessary to
plant seed, as there are many farms
where there are plenty of seedlings
growing al>out old fence rows and in
wood lots, but to start with the seed,
they should be selected from good,
sound apples, packed in sand and kept
from freezing during the winter, and
planted early in spring in rich, mellow
soil (sandy lome) and kept free from
weeds. When stock is one to two inches
in diameter they are ready for the graft
and may be grafted in the row, but 1
prefer to set out in orchard in February
or March, and graft when the proper
time comes, the same spring as s»*t out.
Now some one will say why not root
graft as is done in nurseries. First, be
couse it is very seldom that the cion
and old stock "will unite HO perfectly,
but there will be some spot or blemish
between the inside woods, although the
sap wood may unite perfectly. If there
is any blemish at the point of union and
it is placed in the soil it will be continu
ously subject to dampness and cause
the tree to decay at the stump. W hen
cutting stock to graft cut one foot or
more from the ground. Why ( lie
cause the seedling is hardier than our
improved fruit and will not be subject
to ravage from those insects that work
about the crown of the tree, and will
also be better able to resist the action
of hard freezing of the soil about the
butt of the tree than would the wood of
our improved fruits. Is there any dif
ference in what stock we graft? Yes,
I have two Falwater trees the cions (or
grafts) of which were taken from the
same parent tree, the trees planted in
the same orchard, same soil, in fact the
conditions as near alike as could be and
yet the fruit of those two trees differ in
looks, in taste, in time of ripening and
in keeping quality; which uimt be on ac
count the difference in the stock which
was grafted. lu selecting stock to graft
upon never select young trees that shoot
out out their limbs too close together
up the main stock, or those that have
short spurs something like crab-apple,
but select those with few limbs, yellow
ish-green bark and which show open
grain wood. 1 said that I grafted the
same spring that 1 set out mv tree.
Why? Because the tiee, having been
lately set out, has not got many feeding
rootlets to provide food for the tree and
consequently do not require many
leaves. In planting do not plant too
deep. A tree should be planted a little
deeper than it stood in the nnrserv row
but too deep planting is not good, as we
always find the feeding rootlets near
'he surface of the soil, and tin* tree will
send its large roots clown in the soil to
a sufficient depth to hold the tree; do
not permit sward to remain long alwnt
the crown of the tree, hut dig it away
for at least one foot all around the tree.
If sward is allowed to re
main long about an apple tree it will
1 bind the tree so that it will not devel
ope properly, and it also makes a good
harboring place for the borer.
The apple tree should be planted on
high ground if possible, and if they
must he planted on a low flat situation
it should be well drained, otherwise the
trees will be short lived. Trees planted
on a hill-side facing the south will bear
' fruit from five to six years sooner than
those planted on a hill side facing north.
The frnit on a southern exposure will
not be as large as those facing north, |
bnt they will be of better color anil bet
ter flavor. Trees facing Konth will bnrl
sooner in tlie spring ami consequently
will l>e more liable to be killeil by late
frosts in spring, bnt this may be over
come in the same manner as we treat
the peach. W.M. .1. PACOE.

thus able to show the House that he hail
the tenii*-rauient, parliamentary knowl
edge quickness and decision of charac
ter to make a successful presiding of
ficer over even such a turbulent body as
the National House of Representatives
His influential position as a member
of the Ways and Means Committee and
the Committee on Rules gave him a
special advantage. He was able to
make friends, and did make friends,
and placed members under obligation
to him from all parts of the Union. If
backed by his State and put forth as
the choice of its delegation he would be
the most formidable candidate in the
list, and Pennsylvania might again be

An Important Decision.
The beneficial societies frequently '
have occasion to discuss the question as
to whether a member in arrears was en j
titled to the benefits allowed those in
good standing The Supreme court has
settled the question by deciding that
societies are liable to pay benefits either
in part or whole as long as a member is
carried on the membership roll, even if
he has been declared out of benefits.
Also that the memtors of a society are
individually liable for all obligations in
curred liefore the society was disband
