Funeral Keporting Bureau in Connection
With a New Central.
THE CIHXDERS OP 'PHONES GUARDED
"So, we wouldn't ask the officiating
ninister to talk into the transmitting tube,"
said James I". Burke, of the new Central
Copying Company, "for that would proba
bly detract from the imprcssiveness of a
funeral oration. "We would just have a
man from our corps of stenographers there,
get full shorthand notes from him and
transcribe the oration of the obsequies just
the same as has been done heretofore, by
typewriter. But, you see, with a grapho-phone-phonograph
copying staff in our
central office, we would need plenty of
transcribing to keep all our typewriters
busy; and so we shall go quite extensively
into the funeral reporting business.
"We have already arranged with the lead
ing undertakers to carry on a regular system
of funeral sermon reporting, in which case
each undertaker will be supplied with 100
postal cards addressed to us, and when the
relatives of a deceased person desire the
funeral oration, the director drops us a
postal to have a stenographer at a certain
place at a certain time to 'take' the sermon,
which will be done. If a man be a member
ot Councils, Chamber of Commerce, or any
other body, a shorthand report ot the
speeches delivered at the meeting called in
honor of a dead member will also be made
and transcribed for preservation as above.
"But our great feature will be to conduct
a general and systematic copying business,
from the phonograph or graphophone cylin
ders. To this end we will place in the office
of each of our customers, a phonograph or
graphophone (there being but little differ
ence between the two), which we rent from
the "Western Pennsylvania Company, and
into which he can talk all his letters and
documents. At stated hours during the
day our messenger, who is provided with a
leather case, to which the customer and cen
tral office have keys, calls and collects the
cylinders containing all dictations up to the
hour of collection; takes them to the central
office, where they are put into typewriting
by the most expert operators in the city,
each of whom is under heavy bonds to keep
secret all matters passing through our cen
tral office. The correspondence is then re
turned to the customer, ready for the mails.
"The 'phone is at his command at all
hours of the day and night, and therefore
more reliable than a stenographer or type
writer. The cost of furnishing customers
this service which includes graphophone or
phonograph, cylinders, typewriting and in
fact everything bnt letter-heads, will range
from20per month upward, according to
the volunfe of the customer's business.
"An instrument will also be placed in
each of the leading law offices, into which
all documents, contracts and arguments can
be dictated and sent to the central office for
transcribing into typewriting.
"A branch office will also be established
in the leading hotels lor the accommodation
of guests who have considerable writing
A Dispatch man was one of the first to
try the new "phones at the Central, when
ihey came on from the East. From his own
observation, and by a series of cross-questions
of Mr. Burke and others, he elicited
the novel fact that not one man in one Hun
dred knows or recognizes his own'voice
when he hears it again through the 'phone,
though lie knows it must be transmitted
with the same exact accuracy as the voices
of all the others whom the 'phone permits to
"talk back at him." "Usually when a man
hears his own voice coming through the
phone, even before it (the voice) has had a
chance to get warm, he exclaims:
"Well, I declare! I didn't know I had a
voice like that. It sounds a little like my
brother's, or father's; but it must be mine,
for I have just recognized all the other
voices clearly repeated to me through the
Odd, isn't it, that a man will recognize his
own signature and swear to it, or identify
any of his material belongings, yet can't
tell his own voice when he hears it accu
THE JELLT FISH.
A Teacher Chats Abont One of the Lowest
Forms of Animal Life.
"People hardly ever stop to think that
the masses ot jelly-like matter they so often
see floating around in the water at the sea
side are alive and have some feeling."
The speaker was a bright teacher who
takes a great deal of interest in natural his
tory. "The jelly fish," he continued, "is one
of the primitive animals that has not lost
its identity in the marvelous evolution of
animal lite. It possesses some power of
sensation, but not much of anything else.
I can't sav that it has anv semblance of a
nervous system, but it has a low sort of in
stinct that leads it to avoid danger.
"As for digestive apparatus, it is really
all stomach, and it lives by what it absorbs
through numerous little pores from the
water. In this respect it resembles a piece
of dough in which one would stick pieces
of food. If the dough had the power of
assimilation it would be a second edition of
the jelly fish.
WHO WOULD BE LIABLE?
A Queer Question of Dnmaees Likely to
Arise as to Right of AVny.
A peculiar question was raised by an East
.End gentleman, and in all probability it
will some day come up in court. He was
standing in the road at Aiken avenue, wait
ing lor a cable car, and just asjie was about
to step on the car a carriage whirled by,
almost crushing him against the moving
Had he been injured, the gentleman
would have been greatly nonplussed as to
whether he could have asked damages from
the cable line or from the owner of the car
riage, or from either.
He was standing in the road, of course,
where the carriage had the right of way, but
he also had a right to stand there, as the
cable placard read that all cars stopped
Jbcre. Narrow escapes of this kind are fre
quent, and probably another peculiar cable
question will soon come up.
THE WBECKED BOAT.
Thouiandi of People to Tien- the Dismantled
Notwithstanding the inclemency of the
weather yesterday and the uninviting con
ditions along the river banks, thousands of
people gathered at the foot of Fifth street
along Duquesne Way, to view the wreck of
the steamboat Return which was destroyed
by the explosion of the boiler on the Two
Brothels Saturday noon.
The wreck was moored below the suspen
sion bridge, and people gathered from all
parts of the city to see it. The officers in
charge had hard work keeping men and
boys off the boat and thereby probably pre
venting their falling into the river.

WHY NOT AMEL
A Glowing; Picture of the Possibilities of
Mexico Told by a Resident minerals
Awaiting American Gold.
Mr. E. L. Dwyer, of London, is at the
Duquesne, the guest of J. P. Witherovr.
Mr. Dwyer has spent a number of years in
Mexico, where he has some iron interests,
and he is on the way down there now.
While chatting about the country yesterday
The Mexicans are a very hospitable and in
telligent people. I predict that In five years
the country will be largely developed. It is
rich in various kinds of minerals, principally
iron. In Northern and Southern Mexico and
along the Pacific coast there are neavy iron de
posits of exceUent quality. Much or it is su
perior to the ore found in the Lake Superior
region. It seems to be scattered all through
the country, and not in isolated spots as in
The trouble so far has been that we have had
no railroads to transport the ore. The National
Mexican road was opened a few months ago,
and runs through the iron mountains In North
ern Mexico. We propose to commence at once
to open mines. The construction ofsteeln.il
mills, furnaces, etc, is on the carpet, and in a
few years these industries will be found there
in abundance. , ,
At present Mexico trades extensively with
England, Germany, Belgium and other foreign
countries. The time his come when America
should step in and compete for some of this
business. So far the home demand and the
prices have been high enough to keep Ameri
cans within the bonnds of their own country,
but they will have to jo outside now.
I see floss Shephard in Mexico occasionally.
He is doing well, and seems to be happy. The
day will come when Washington will build a
monument to his memory.
There is no opposition or bitterness against
Americans displayed by the Mexicans. Every
thing depends on the man. If he is honorable
and square, he will get along as well in Mexico
as anywhere else. There is much more lawless
ness in Texas than in Mexico. The men who
spend two weeks in the country, or vs ho pass
through it, are the ones who always write his
tories. They seem to know more about Mexi
can affairs and life than those who live there
for years, and usually the reputation of Mexi
cans suffer at their bands.
CAUGHT AT CENTEAL.
Scenes nt the Sunday Morning Hearing In
the Police Station.
"Some more unfortunatos,
Weary of beer;
Rashly we loaded up.
Hence we are hero!"
Twenty-eight disconsolates peeked appre
hensively over the gilded bars at Central
station and looked mildly surprised upon
being confronted by outraged law in the
shape of Justice Hyndman, instead of the
searching, brown eye of Justice Gripp. The
old-timers breathed a little freer, for Mr. H.
isn't quite so well up in their past records
as Mr. G., bnt he'll get there bv-and-by.
David Cirts was d. d. dead drunk on
the cornerof Fifth and Market. His Honor
said the usual thing and David said cert.
Some men have a funny idea of fun.
James Lester thought it was fun to take off
his coat and waltz all over .Market street in
the chill night air and ask somebody to
please come and fight. He was calmly
gathered in by the smallest officer on the
force, and it broke a beautiful tenner all up
to square things with Hyndman.
Two men got to poking fun at Tamberline,
an Italian on Smithfield street, and he
pulled out a sanguinary knife and cut a
huge chunk out of the air and discoursed in
the sweet Italian lingo. Eight dollars and
forty cents will buy an awful lot of peanuts,
and $6 60 of the other fellows' money went
the way of all transgressors.
Annie St Clair swore most terrific swears
and gathered a crowd on Second avenue,
and did other things that were not right,
hence she isn't feeling well.
Dan Hill drawed a raazor and threatened
to kyaave a lady and her husband, but
Officer Becker fell upon him like a house
afire, and his formidable weapon secured
for him 30 days to the workhouse or f 8 40.
The Captain truly remarked, at the close
of the performance, that the percentage of
women now arrested is not one to eight ar
rested before the Brooks law went into
effect. It seems rather a harsh thing to say,
but it is nevertheless true, that when a
woman does drink she seeks the very lowest
dives for her carousals, and, as the dives are
gone, she lacks opportunity. ,
An Accommodating Cabby.
"Andy," the popular cab driver located
on Fifth avenue, has somewhat extended
his field of operations since the sharp com
petition introduced by the cable lines. His
cheerful yell now is: "Carriage, sir? Car
riage to all parts of the earth.

Detective Sol Coulson has been engaged
to take charge of Minnie Palmer's 173,000
worth of diamonds during her engagement
in this city.

Expressions From Well-Known City Minis
ters on the Subject.
THE SERVICES TO BE HELD AT 9 A. E
The general committee of the Washington
Centennial meets to-night and will receive
members of the various commercial bodies
of the cities. Favorable answers have been
received from ministers of all denomina
tions in regard to the holding of religious
services on the morning of April 30.
Bev. T. J. Leak, of the North Avenue
M". E. Church, writes that he cheerfully
endorses the proposition; Bev. Joseph Suhr,
of St. Peter and St. Paul churches, says the
suggestion is eminently proper, and he will
hold services of thanksgiving.
Bev. C. E. Bocke, of the Smithfield street
M. E. Church, enlists his enthusiastic co
operation; Bev. B. Lea, formerly of the
Forty-third street Presbyterian Church,
writes that if he is pastor of that church he
will be pleased to arrange for services, thus
commemorating the religious services held
April 30, 1789, and that God never gave to
any nation such a line of Presidents as from
Washington to Harrison.
Eev. M. M. Sheedy, of St. Mary of Mer
cy's Church, says it is indeed proper for
every citizen, of any race or creed, to hold
such religious services of thanksgiving and
praise, and that he had found in Washing
ton's inaugural address the following beau
It would be peculiarly improper to omit in
this first official act my fervent supplication to
that Almighty Being who rules over the uni
verse, who presides in the councils of nations
and whose providential aid can supply every
human defect, that His benediction may conse
crate to the liberties and happiness of the
people of the United States a Government
instituted by themselves for these essential
purposes, and may enable every instrument em
ployed in its administration to execute with
success the functions allotted to his charge.
Eev. Samuel Maxwell, of Trinity Episco
pal Church, says he heartily co-operates
with the general committee, and will hold
appropriate services at the hour stated, 9 A.
M.; Eev. G. G. Westfall, of the Fourth TJ.
P. Church, and Eev. B. F. Beazell, of the
Oakland M. E. Church, are greatly pleased
to join in such a pretty and appropriate
idea; also Kev. C. V. Wilson, of the Emory
M. E. Church, and Kev. Thomas D. Butler,
of the East End Christian Church; Kev.
George P. Allman, of St. Joseph's Church,
will invite his congregation to attend, as
will also Bev. A. A. Lambing, of St. James'
Church, and Kev. B. A. Hill, of the Sev
enth Presbyterian Church.
Kev. M. Carroll, of the St Andrew's
Church, Allegheny, will not be at home
upon that day. but will gladly arrange that
services be held in commemoration of the
inaugural of a good man who aided in driv
ing British slavery from the land and made
it the home of the free, and Bev. W. J.
Holland, of the Bellefield Presbyterian
Church, will hold special services in honor
of the day.
TO GO TO PERDITION.
A Pastor Arcues Tlmt it Is Very Hard to
Go in an Unnatural Direction.
Every seat upstairs and down in the
Smithfield Street Methodist Church was
taken last night by attentive listeners to
Kev. C. E. Locke's ideas why it is "not
easy to go to perdition."
The scholarly-looking young man said it
was one of the hardest things in the world
to go to hell, for man was not made to go
there, hence it would be unnatural to go
there, and anything unnatural is very hard.
Besides man has an affinity for light and
higher things, hence his love and adoration
for music, flowers, painting and little chil
dren. He compared God's words to the blaze of
an electric light, and gave as an example of
thejspread of Christianity, that 200,000,000
copies of the Bible had been printed within
the last century, in 273 different tongues.
This, he said, was a fiat contradiction of a
brilliant Frenchman's prophecy 100 years
ago, that the Bible would to-day be obsolete.
A 85,000 Picture Free.
"Will They Consent?" is a large magnifi
cent engraving, 19x24 inches, an exact
