John J. O'Reilly Tells of His Reason
for Business Apathy
TOWARD OUR COMIKG EXPOSITION
ffhs Lignor Element Indifferent, if "ot
ttHI PEESIDENT HiRYIOAI RESIGN
The state of immovable apathy into which
Exposition affairs eeem to have fallen has
been somewhat disturbed by the resignation
of J. 3T. Nicholson from Cincinnati, and
that gentleman's good-humored opinion
that Pittsburg could get along without him
and, anyway, he could get along without
This apathy seems to be again settling
over the scene, and in order to get at some
of thejreasons why lively, bustling Pitts
burgers should tteat with indifference an
Exposition scheme that would not only
redound to the credit and honor of Pittsburg
as a whole, but promote pi-irate enterprise
nnd private interests in every respect an
explanation was sought of John J. O'Reilly,
a man who voices not only the sentiments
of the entire liquor interests of tLe city, bnt
is well known among the manufacturing
and business interests of all kinds.
Mr. O'Keilly is, by the way, the one man
who was asked personally by members of the
Exposition Board, and consented to drum
up the liquor interests of the city and secure
subscriptions for the buildings.
"Well," said he reflectively, when he
was asked the plump question as to what he
thought of the affairs, "the liquor interests
of this city are hustling all their money ana
resources together in view of this greatly
talked of prohibition act They are afraid
of the act, and, not unnaturally, distrustful
of a man who advocates prohibition. For
certain reasons, the brewers and liquor
men are indifferent, and did not even take
the trouble to attend the Exposition meet
ing, and vote as they were entitled. They
did cot even take the trouble to antagonize
the Exposition Board.
MB. O'BEIXLY'S PABTICULABS.
"This feeling does not enly exist in liquor
circles, but I have encountered the strang
est opposition even among our largest man
ufacturers every time I talked Exposition,
and I always talk it, for there is no man in
the city favors it more than I do. Promi
nent iron men have said to me that the
board, as at present organized, is not popu
lar, and some ox the best men in the city
have said to me, 'We will not touch it as
, long as S. S. Marvin is President.' It
wonld loot: far better if certain business
xaen in the board would give to the splendid
scheme but a trifle compared to their bene
fits derived rather than ask manufacturers
to subscribe who receive no benefit what
ever. "My experience is that the sentiment of
the people, and the sentiment of the best
business men is against the board as at pres
ent organized. Again: it is a shame to let
that Cincinnati man, Nicholson, go. I have
been a canvasser for 16 years, and I have
never met a better, more capable man than
""We would not by any means have Mr.
Marvin out of the board, nor any other
members, but it is rather absurd to see some
members of the board itself subscribing only
$100, or a petty 5500. "We want John Bind
ley as President, and with Mr. Marvin as
director, and the bringing in of outside in
terests not represented in the board at pres
ent. "With these changes, and the organiza
tion of an Advisory Board, a round 1,000,-
000 could be raised in 30 days. I guarantee
myself that the brewing and liquor interests
would subscribe a round 5100,000.
"I associate with every line of business in
the city, and I traveled around among the
liquor men, and Mr. Nicholson knows bow
bard I talked, and what personal influence
1 brought to bear to raise a petty 515,000.
"Wainwright said he would give what Frau
enheim gave. The latter subscribed 52,500
and "Wainwright backed out and said he had
food reasons for doing so. Cincinnati
rewers seem arrayed against the scheme,
and won't give a penny, though they sub
scribed thousands for Nicholson in their
BEADT -WIM NAMES.
"If John Bindley and A. P. Keating, or
any member of the board come to me per
sonally, I will tell them the names of some
of our heaviest manufacturers here who
have told me personally that they would
not subscribe, and I will give them reasons,
"If the liquor interests knew their busi
ness was safe thev would freely subscribe
5100,000. As it is they have already given,
even under the present adverse circum
stances, one-eighth of all that has been sub
scribed, and I consider that a good showing.
It isn't a marvel to me that the board meet
ing was not welt attended, as many sub
scribers preferred to be absent rather than
antagonize any members of the board.
"Now understand, I do not speak as repre
senting the liqnor interests of Pittsburg, but
as one who has had business intercourse with
all sorts of interests. I do not antagonize
Mr. Marvin, but on the contrary respect
him, and would be sorry to lose him entirely
irom exposition affairs, and no one wants to
lose him on account of his well-known pub
lic spirit and enterprise. Nevertheless, I
have encountered a feeling among the best
public men I know, that the Exposition
Board as at present organized is not accept
able. Mr. Marvin has been four years a
president, and he sees a hitch somewhere as
quicE as anyooay. lie lias influential
backers, let tfieni come forward.
"In conclusion, while I am reluctant to
say anything against Mr. Marvin, it is just
as well that he should know of the sentiment
"I could go on and tell why the heavy
street railroad interests have not given one
pennv toward a venture that will ultimately
net them hundreds of thousands, but it is
useless. I hope everything I have said will
not be printed, but if it is I will stand by it.
I echo public sentiment, and will bear any
thing, only so the Exposition goes through?'
IMJESIDEST MABVKT'S BEPLY.
A call was made upon President Marvin,
at his business house on Liberty street, in
regard to the issues at stake. A few pointed
questions were put to the gentleman regard
ing his feelings in the matter, and what he
would do providing such and such a thing
were true. He leaned carelessly back in his
chair, thought for half a minute, and said:
"John J. O'Reilly says he will guarantee
5100,000 subscription from the liquor inter
ests if I resign from the Presidency of the
Exposition. Now I have a proposition to
make to Mr. O'Keilly. If he secures a sub-,
scription of $30,000, I will resign lrom the'
Presidency. More than that; if he or any
other man secures a subscription of $50,000,
that is opposed tome, I will resign at once,
because I will think it to the interest of
"There is a certain interest in this city
that, though it dare not accuse me openly
of prohibition, loses not one opportunity of
stabbing me in the back. My best ideas
and my best energies are being expended in
securing what Pittsburg citizens so much
desire, an Exposition that will almost
double their business, and make us famous.
Nevertheless, I repeat this: If Mr.
O'Keilly or any other man in this city pro
duces 550,000 bona fide subscriptions, as ar
rayed against me as President of the soci
ety, I will resign."

AS IMPORTANT DOCUMENT.
The Construction of the Burlington Agree
ment Defined In a Letter.
Chicago, January 10. A dispatch from
Galesbnrg this morning said that a member
of the engineers' committee which settled
the Burlington strike had told the engineers
at that point that there was a document in
connection with the settlement which had
not been made public. A reporter asked
Vice President Stone for a copy'of it this
afternoon. Mr. Stone said that the docu
ment referreel to was no part of the agree
ment, but was a letter to Mr. Ripley, the
general manager of the Burlington road,
and that a copy of it had been given to the
strikers, as it showed the spirit in which the
agreement was to be earned out. The let
ter reads as follows:
Chicago, January 4.
Mr. E. P. Ripley, General Manager:
Deak Sib The inclosed is a copy of the
communication which I was directed to give to
the Committee of the Brotherhood of Locomo
tive Engineers and Firemen, who have been in
conference with us to-day, and which was ac
cepted by them, and they have, declared the
It is important that no questions should arise
as to the good faith ot the company, and it is
out desire and intention that there should be
no opportunity for such questions.
As to the meaning of the word "available," I
desire to say that u hen it becomes necessary to
employ men outside of those now in the service,
care must be taken to consider all the qualifi
cations that go to make up availability, includ
ing experience and familiarity with our sur
roundings and rules. In shcrt, that the very
best men are to be selected, regardless of per
sonal relation or prejudices for or against any
men or class of men.
It should further bo fully understood that
the company does not desire to pursue those
who have been guilty of Improper conduct
during the late strike, and while such men can
not be employed, and we cannot give letters to
them, no officers or employes should continue
the animosities of the conflict after it is over,
or interfere to prevent the employment of such
men elsewhere. Yours truly,

rSFECXJX TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.
Charleston, "W. Va., January 10. The
rule against Secretary of State "Walker re
quiring him to show cause why a writ of
mandamus should not issue requiring him
to lay before the Legislature the vote cast in
Kanawha county for Governor as it had
been certified to him, was argued this morn
ing, and was quashed. Counsel for General
Goff immediately made a second application
for a writ of mandamus of similar import,
which was Granted, returnable by Secretary
of State "Walker at 2:30 this afternoon. This
morning the Supreme Court granted a writ
of prohibition against Judge Guthrie pro
hibiting him from going on with the man
damus against the Secretary of State. The
time set for the argument of this matter
before the Supreme Court has been fixed for
3 o'clock to-morrow, and in the meantime
matters will remain in status quo.
The vote of Kanawha gives Goff a majority
of 106 in the State, but without it Fleming
has a majority of over 1,400, and it is the
duty of the Legislature to go into joint
session and declare the result of the election
as soon as the two Houses are organized. In
the Senate this afternoon the usual fili
bustering tactics were carried on, and shortly
after 4 o'clock it adjourned until 2 o'clock
to-morrow, apparently as far from organizing

It is by far superior to any other
preparation I have ever used. Its curative ef
