danger arose from her immense
material prosperity. President Harri

Pen-Picture of Their Amer
Mrs. Schenley's Property in
Wretchedness and Poverty in Her
Pittsburg' Tenements How the
Pittsburg Letter In New York World.)
Thirty-fivo millions of dollars there
may bo a few millions more or less, but
that's n small master to her represent
to Mrs. Mary Schenley of England tho
value of her possessions in this country.
To Mrs. Schenley's son Web, born in
England, educated in England and filled
with English ideas, this immense
property will fall upon the death of his
mother, even as tho great estates of
England pass from father to eldest son.
In all Pittsburg, where her property
is located, you will find no more
wretched peoplo than those who live in
Mary Schenley's houses. You will find
no more tumble-down structures in any
section of tho city than in the district
owned by her. You will find that other
landlords spend money for improve
ments on their property. Mrs. Schenley
does not, or rather her agents do not.
If you want to see wretchedness in its
home, go to Pittsburg and visit tho
people who live in Mary Schenley's
the woman's aim is money.
Mrs. Schenley represents tho worst
type of an alien landlord. Her property
brings in an enormous income. Strange
as it may seem there are always tenants
for her houses, and as fast as one croes
out another takes his place and his
wrctciiedness. bo the property realizes
handsomely. But does ono dollar stay
in America? Not if Mrs. Schenley can
help it. There arc agents to bo paid, of
uuuine, urn. mu grvut iiuik. ui inu income
goes across tho water in an English
steamer, is deposited in an English bank
or spent in England. England cets the
benefit, and has received the benefit of
millions of American dollars from Mrs.
Schenley alone. Pittsburg is not helped
by Mrs. Schenley's property. Pittsburg
would be a great deal lctter off without
Mrs. Schenley's lands and houses, but
the city cannot get rid of her property.
So Mrs. Schenley and her son Web and
his descendants may continue to run
things as they are, believing that they
cannot bo disturbed or provented from
taking away from America millions of
American dollars that should remain
ACQUIRING THE I'ROl'EBTV.
The story of how Mary Schenley came
to bo an alien landlord takes the reader
back to Ireland, in tho year 1750. In
that year was bom James O'Hara, and
twenty years later James was on the
Atlantic, bound for America, He was
already married. It was not till 1773
that histoiy again mentions James
O'Hara, but from that time on James
made history or helped make it. Ho
was an Indian trader when the war of
tlio American ro volution broke out,
carrying pn his business near Fort Pitt
in Pennsylvania. Ho did not hesitate
to give his services to his adopted
country. Ho was a smart business man,
and did not remain Private O'Hara of
tho Ninth Virginia Infantry very long.
Aood assistant to tho army quarter
master was needed, and James O'Hara
was given the place. He transacted the
business of the office with great sucsess,
and became well known from New York
to Virginia. His business instincts led
Citizen O'Hara to make large purchases
of land from the state of Pennsylvania,
and when tho little village which is now
called tho Smoky City, was laid out,
O'Hara bought largo tracts of land near
it. He was also active in politics, and
as a presidential elector cast a vote for
EARLY SETTLERS ON THE MONONOAHELA.
In 1792 tho government appointed
him quartermaster general, in which
position ho was of great service, as his
business faculties wero largely instru
mental in procuring necessary supplies
for the armies. Four years afterwards
General O'Hara returned to Pittsburg
and in 1707 ho and Major Isaac Craig
erected tho first glassworks in Pittsburg,
at a cost of $30,000. Ho afterwards
opened up the Onondaga salt mines and
uuui up u miiyiug uusuicbb in iiiut line.
Contemporaneous with General
O'Hara was Major William Croghan.
also an Irishman, who had immigrated
to this country and earned his title in
commanding a Virginia regiment airainst
the British in tho stirring times of'1770.
Major Croghan settled in Pittsburg with
his wifo and only son. From the O'llaras
and tho Crochuns came Mary Schenley.
At tho ago of 11 years Miss Croghan
was sent to a young lauies' private Ecnoot
kept by a Miss Schenley at Peekskill, N.
Y. It had been intended by her grand
father that she should marry the lato
William Denny and so unite tho vast
estates of both families. But the old
gentleman's plans amounted to nothing.
When she had been three years at the
seminary she eloped with Captain W.
Edward W. II. Schenley and in New
York they were married.
THE LANDLADY TURNED ARISTOCRAT.
Mary Schenley lived very happily
with her husband. Sho camo to Amer
ica several times to see her father,
who lived in a famous house in tho
Eighteenth ward of Pittsburg. Tho
residenco was known as "Picnic," and
was tho admiration of tho town when it
was new. Even now it has many vis
itors. The mansion was patterned after
the country houses ot wealthy J-mgiisii-uien
and contains as many rooms as a
New York apartment house fifty in all.
The house stands on an eminence and is
surrounded by forty or fifty acres of
land. Tho furnishings of tho house
havo not been disturbed since Mrs
Schenley paid her last visit to Pittsburg,
and the old-fashioned furniture remains
as she left it. The china closets are
filled with rare specimens in that line,
while tho collection of cut-glass is re
markably interesting. Mary's father
died in September, 1850, and his prop
erty went to augment the estates of his
daughter. Captain Schenley. who con
tinued to serve his country, died a major
in 1809. Since his death Mrs. Schenley
has visited this country but little, the
excuse being that America does not
agree with her. She is said to be always
sick during her stay here, and the last
time she visited Pittsburg she suffered
terribly from asthma.
an englishman's certain rule.
Such is the history of Mary Schenley
and her father and grandfather. It is
easy enough to see how it became possi
ble for so many millions in lands to be
owned by one person, and how in a few
years that person will pass on and an
Englishman will have sway over a vast
property in Pittsburg. But with the
present owner things are bad enough
and Veb Schenley cannot make the
tenants any worse off than they are to
day. The "Rev. Father Sliecdy, a much
beloved priest, whose parishioners are
almost all tenants of Mrs. Schenley,
knows about the condition of Mrs.
Schenley's property as much as that
lady's agents do. Father Sheedy says
that tho Schenley estate today is " a
dead weight on the morality and health
of tho community."
The wretched tenement houses of tho
Schenley estate, said he, aro like sink
holes, into which drains a largo part of
the vicious, worthless element cast off
by tlio rest of the city. Tlio houses sit
uated on the streets and alleys in tlio
rear aro filled to overflowing with people.
It is the rule that when a man takes a
lease of one of the houses on the street
he also takes one for tho house in the
rear. Then being unable to look out for
both houses the lessee sublets the house
in tho rear, either wholly or, if that is
not possible, by floors or rooms. Incase
the tenants of these floors or rooms fail
to pay their rent the man who has sub

NO MERCY SHOWN TO POVERTY.
Many are the cases in which great
suffering was caused by the poor peo
ple being put out of their homes
Short leaes only are given by the agents
of the estate, five years being the limit.
At the expiration of the lease, especially
if the tenant has made any improve
ments, the agents raise the rent.
Those unfortunate people who take up
their homes in the "Point" district, at
the junction of the Allegheny and Mou-
ongahela rivers, leave all the hope of
advancement lehind them. Not long
ago a week or two a solier, hard
working Irishman, who was a tenant of
tho fcchenleys lor lorty years, was taken
sick and died. Father Sheedy says that
tho "place" that is the best name for
it in which the tenant was laid out and
buried from was "not fit to house a hog
in." And yet that man hod li ed in
the "place" forty years.
GREAT-HEARTED WILLIAM THAW'S REGRET.
The millionaire philanthropist, Wil
liam Thaw, died not long ago. His good
ness is known to all people in this city
and its vicinity, and his judgment of
men and things was excellent. He once
miide a statement concerning the Schen
ley estate, which shows thatall this talk
about Mary Schenley's tumble-down
houses and neglected property is not
merely for effect, but is true to the let
ger. "Of all the gifts I ever mode," said
the millionaire, "and I have given away
several millions to charity, I only regret
giving one and that was the gift of
5000 to the fund which built the Expo
sition building. The Exposition will
double the value of the 'Point' property
of tho Schenley estate. That estate
never spends a dollar on improving its
property. Instead of doing so, though
it knows that the value of its houses and
lands would be increased thereby, it
allows other people to make improve
ments and shares the benefit."

Grand Democratic Symposium under
the Roof of This Foully
By the Associated Press."
New York, July 4. Tammany Hall
had a big celebration today and a large
audience attended the exercises. The
first speaker of the day was Congress
man Bynum, of Indiana, whose chief
glory it is that he received the censure
of the Republican speaker of the House
The founders of the nation, said Mr.
Bynum, did not believe a majority,
however large, had a right to deprive a
minority, however small, of its natural
rights. It had the right to govern, but
only with due regard to the rights of the
minority. Never in the life of the na
tion has such a thrust at its liberty
been made as in the passage of the
Federal election bill. This law
was not intended for the South alone.
It was intended for New, York and In
diana. With voice, with pen and with
sword the people should rise in their
might and prevent the enactment of
such a law.
Congressman Crisp of Georgia Baid the
Republicans sought by exciting preju
dice against the South, by assailing it
with slanders to secure the passage of
the bill, but having made it a law they
would soon turn it against New York,
being ready to do anything to retain
Letters of reuret w ere received from
ex-President Cleveland, Governor Hill
and a number of other Democratic
Governors, Senators and Congressmen.
The letters from Mr. Cleveland and
Mr. Hill were followed by loud applause
Then came a number of short talks by
Governor Beggs of Deleware, referring
to the Election bill, said he believed in
letting the colored man have his rights,
but not the white man's rights, too. This
is a white man's government and he be
lieved in supporting his own race.
A resolution was unanimously adopted
declaring that mass meetings should bo
called throughout the country to de
nounce tho Federal election bill and to
protest against its passage by the
Ex-President Cleveland, m his letter,
said in part: "The opportunities and
temptations presented to partisanship
have brought us to a time when party
control is Tar too arrogant and when in
public places the true interests of the
people are too lightly considered. In
this predicament those who love their
country may well remember with com
fort hnd satisfaction on Independence
Day that the disposition of the American
people is not to revolt against the admin
istration. It still commands them
and is the badge of their freedom and
independence, a well as their security
for continued prosperity and happiness.
They will not revolt against their plan
of government, for it is the pro
tection and preservation or the supply of
every inspiration of true Americanism.
But because they are free and inde
pendent American citizens they will, us
long as their love and veneration for
their government shall last, revolt
against the domination of any political
party which is entrusted with powrer
which sordidly seeks only its contin
uance and which, violating its plain and
simple duty to the people, insults them
with professions of disinterested solicita
tion while it eats out their substance ;
and yet with this wo should not In
blind security deny tho existence of
danger. Tho masses of our countrymen
are brave and therefore generous. They
are strong and therefore confident
and they are honest and therefore un
suspecting. Our peril lies in tlio ease
with which they may be deluded
and cajoled by those who would
traffic with their interests. No occasion
is more opportune than tho celebration
of the 114th anniversary of American
independence to warn tlio American
peoplo of the present necessity on their
part of the vigilant watchfulness of their
rights and the jealous exaction of honest
and unselfish performance of public
