The gentleman's full name, and position,

reason must have her sway. Countless oil

. "W. Grier, proprietor of the Dexter
Spring Company, located 11 miles north of
this city, has been reading with interest
the discussion going on in the columns of
The Disfatch as to the virtue or efficiency

A "DIVINING COMPANY."
Dunne the groat oil excitement of 25 years
ago, when the fever had seized even the stable
business men 01 tms city, our pator, ite. It.
11 Bojd,now of California, Mich., a man of
integrity and judgment, told me he bad seen a
brothcr'preacher. Patterson by name, perform
some marvelous feats with tbe divining rod. in
discovering w ater, oil, or mineral veins. Mv
friend Mr. Boyd was so sanguine thatl, tliougb
Incredulous, was anxious to make some practi
cal tests and tbe preliminaries were arranged
lor a real oil divining company.
Patterson and myself met at Petroleum
Center, then the very heart of the tremendous
oil craze, and tbe testing began. At Pitbole
one day, I suggested that tbe tests begin, but
he with great lil humor refused, but I insisted,
and at 10 o'clock that night succeeded in draw
ing him Into a new railroad grading about 500
feet long. I knew, though he was not aware of
mj Knowledge, that but a few das belore he
lia'd located at least 20 veins of oil within that
Well, it wis very dark, and I directed him to
grope bis way along the edge of the embank
ment, sith bis divining rod held according to
regulations, and whenever it turned, be was to
lay a large nail at his heel. When we arrived
at the end of the gride lasted him to retrace
his steps and pro; e the correctness of bis loca
tions. Every time he said he bad struck oil on
tbe return trip. I stuck a large nail in tbe
ground We then went over tbe grade again,
and I laid a small nail at his point of divination
and on coming back I stuck a small nail in the
ground at his direction, and all the time we
v. crc in complete darkness.
THE FRAUD EXPOSED.
We slept together that night, and early in
tbe morning we sought tbe scene of our labors,
and we found nails scattered every few feet
along our track, and Patterson was greatlv
discouraged, but! bad not done with him. 1
was sent np there by responsible men. Loci. -halt
and Fiew, to investigate tbe thing and I
was bound to do so. He was very nervous the
night before and I suggested that be try it
again and he started over the route.
I followed behind, watching him closely, and
every time bo stopped and dropped a nail, I
asked, "Are you sure," and he ansn cred, "I am
sure." He traversed the distance, and at about
e ery 40 leet dropped a nan. lie then retraced
his steps, and every time his rod dipped at the
place he had previously dropped a nail.
I had determined upon a final test, and asked
him to please traerse it again. He did so and
I followed His rod again pointed to the nails,
but I quietly picked up each nail and carried It
Rome 15 feet from where he had placed it, thus
completely changing tbeir location.
Patterson agreed to one more test, and
walked back over tbe line, his miserable, fraud
ulent rod pointing to the misplaced nails every
time, thus convincing me that It was alia
ridiculous fraud. There would have been a
fortune in it for me and for him, as J. S. Pat
terson, Lockbart and Frew and others were rich
and responsible and trusting to my report. I
told my gay divining agent of the fraud, and
exposed it to my company, saying at the same
time that no doubt manv good men were de
ceived by the apparent turning of the fork in
OIL UNDEE THE DISPATCH.
"Here, let me show you," continued Mr.
Grier, "how supremely ridiculous the idea
is. Take an end of the fork in each hand,
with the palm upward, you will find it re
quires quite a muscular effort to hold it
that way with the point toward the sky.
2sow hold it that way a minute.
This was done, and gradually, in spite of
all the listener could do, the fork turned
until it pointed downward.
"Perhaps," he mildly suggested, "perhaps
there is oil under us here."
"Oil, nonsense," said Mr. Greer, "there
is a boiler and engine in your cellar, but no
oil But let us try another location."
Another location was tried, and with the
same result. Tbe hazel invariaDly turned,
and the explanation is simple.
As it requires quite an effort to hold the
hazel in the manner described, the muscles
gradually become tired and relax, with the
invariable result of a turning of the fork
because the springy wood exerted a force
sufficient to turn itself. If one were to go
out in middle of the ocean and hold the
hazel for oil, it would finally point down
ward; or if a man were to 'stand on his
head, the divining rod would finally point
In connection with this it might be said
that the pet theory of tbe divining rod be
liever, is that like seeks like, therefore a
green w itch hazel will point to water; a
hazel capped with an oil-soaked ball will
point to oil; a copper, or iron, or gold, or
silver ball will point to its like, though no
one ever tried to see whether a cap and bells
would point to a fool.
Another point brought out by Mr. Greer
brings in a clinching argument." Suppose a
deviation of even one inch were made from
the center of an oil belt 2,500 feet deep. At
the surface this slight inclination would
throw the location 833 feet away from the
However, the last and most convincing
argument in the world need only be brought
to bear to dissipate the pet delusions, com

A GREAT ASSOCIATION.
Report of President Campbell About tbe
Window Glass Workers Insldo Politi
cal History Disclosed.
President James Campbell, of the Win
dow Glass "Workers' Association, has just
issued his annual report. It will be printed
in full in this week's issue of the Commoner
and Glass Worker. From an advance proof
are made the following abstracts :
To-day the window glass workers' organiza
tion stands pre-eminentlj in the lront ranks of
the labor organizations of this country. Tho
stand taken by the window glass workers' or
ganization in the late election for President of
tha United States was an advance step, un-
looked for bv all parties, and paralyzed tho
leaders of theDemocratlc rarty.
Politicians do not fear workingmen's organi
zations so long as they can keep them divided
hi politics, but when tbey sec them united as
the glass workers ere last fall, tbey know that
they arc a power. The abuse heaped on your
ofbeers in the late struggle is sufficient evi
dence of that fact
They tried to divide the members of L. A. 300
by slandering its officers, and.to the credit of tbe
members, tbey failed to do so. To-day L. A. 300
is. stronger than e er before, and it is tbe dntv
of the members to let judiciously and carefully
( in tbeir victor and guard well the advance step
taken by the organization.
I When j our officers announced to the public
tbo fact that the window glass workers' organ
I nation would furnish three speakers at their
j own expense, and speak for tho Republican
candidate for President, from tbe fact that the
Republican platform guaranteed protection to
I the American workmen and American indus
tries, the leaders of tbe Democratic paity were
atmrzed, and set their managers to work to off
set the move. Mr. Tim O'Leary sent for John
Costcllo. and wanted him to go into some of tbe
I doubtful States and speak for Cleveland and
i nurman. -Mr. jostcno came to see me to una
out why tho window glass workers had taken
the position politically as announced in the
press before he would agree to go on the stump
for the Democracy.
I showed Mr. Costcllo wbat we had to con
tend against In tho foreign competition of
glass, and told him that wc bad made the same
statements to the leaders of the Democratic
part and they refused to consider our case as
tbey should have done, and that it was a ques
tion of bread and butter with L. A. 300, and not
polities. Mr. Costcllo then Informed O'Leary
that he bad seen Campbell and talked about
the question and that he had decided not to
go into those States and preach Democracy,
as he bad no desire to injure the win
dow glass workers. O'Leary then said to
Costello (who is now a member of the
General Executive Board of the Knights of
Labor), "don't you pay any attention to Camp
bell; the window class workers are making too
much money now and tbeir wages ought to be
reduced." Mr. O'Leary is now in the employ
of the city of Pittsburg, receiving the sum of
$7 a day for about six hours work, w bile tbe
class workers pay a large amount of taxes to
help keep him and support the high salary he
receives from the city. While he receives a
good salary lrom the city he is able to devote
considerab'c of his time to tbe glass busi
ness, so much so tbat be is now known as a
prominent window glass manufacturer.
The United States is the best market in the
world forjwindow glass, and it is a detriment to
the workmen, that over one-fourth of tbe glass
consumed in this country is imported. There
is some leason for it, and, if possible, the
workers should know tho reason why and try
and remedy so much glass coming into com
petition wtth onr home-made article. There
will always be some glass imported, but when
over one tourth of tbe amount consumed is lm-
Forted, though we have tbe capacity to manu
acture more than tho country can consume,
there is certainly something wrong, and, if
possible, we should remedy the evil and have
full and absolute control of our home market.
Tho increase in the importation of window
glass lat j ear and tbe large number of new
furnaces in conrse of erection was tbe main
reason why tbe wage committee of the West
and North agreed to tbe section in the agree
ment of the settlement of wages, regulating
the time of starting and stopping, and there is
no doubt now in the minds ot many of
those who started ahead of time, but that
tbe committee were right and it would have
been much better for all bands if the agree
ment would have been lived up to. The mem
bers who have f onnd fault with tho committees
have not offered any remedy or suggested any
plan bv which we can control tbe production of
An evil which seems to be on the increase, or,
more properly speaking, a curse to the human
famil, is the excessive use of liquor. It is the
cause of more trouble, the cause ot members
losing more money than all other evils com
bined. I request all members who are in the
habit of using liquor to excess, to stop, so that
we may be better prepared to obtain the
proper Ehare of the wealth wc create.
It beats the rest, is what a druggist said
speaking of Salvation Oil the great pain
