A delegation ot McKeesport saloon keep
ers, would-be saloon keepers and their
friknds came down to the city yesterday
ike a raft afloat on the Allegheny river on
a spring day ony this was a Monongahela
raft. All were in a good humor and Luck
and Clear Records were at the oar. The
former must have run against a hoodoo and
the latter got a little smudged on the way,
for the raft struck a snag in the person of
Judge White and the "V. O. T. IT., which
completely demoralized it, and there is
plenty of cheap timber afloat to-night.
Some of it is in houses in McKeesport,
which can be purchased cheap.
The wreck was complete. The temper
ance workers of that little city at the forks
of two rivers had done some hard work in
the past few weeks. It was done bo quietly,
too, that the liquor dealers could not coun
The gentlemen from the country districts
were also heard from during the day, and
the thirsty farmer is still being sought oat,
and his wants are being attended to.
Applicants in License Court at present
represent a corn popper in full blast. One
applicant is your next door neighbor; the
next that bobs np and cracks open is from
the farthest end of the county, in one direc
tion; while the third will be from just as far
away in the opposite direction.
At one time there will be a rush of Ger
mans; at another all the applicants will be
'Irish, and on a third occasion they will be
more Americanized. The different colonies
about the city can be located by an observer
while sitting in court.
The mutilation of Baglish grammar be
fore the Court is something painful to be
heard. To hear a fellow speak plain En
glishis a pleasant surprise, and when it is
spoken everybody takes notice of it About
every dialect known is spoken, and the
courtroom would be an excellent school for
a character actor.
The remainder of the Second ward ot
Homestead, then Knoxville, Mansfield and
Hilly-ale boroughs were taken up and heard at
the morning session.
His Honor became very Impatient at the
dullness of the applicants, and the way he
questioned and cross-questioned them was a
caution. In one case a saloon keep iz would
not acknowledge that a mealer sometimes
missed a meal, as His Honor wished him to.
The Court dismissed him when impatient and
then had to recall him in order to further ques
A Schneiderlochner is slightly deaf, and this
may account lor his coolness in answering
"Yes, sir." when the Court asked him at the
top of its voice if he only wanted license to sell
whisky to his neighbors.
The applications heard yesterday were:

A PACKED JURY BOS.
The "W. C. T. TJ. ladies turned out in full
force yesterday. The jury box, which has be
come the resort for the fair laborers in the
cause of prohibition was filled to overflowing.
"Temperance Ranch" is the name given to a
space on the left of His Honor, which is re
served for the opposition and their friends. It
includes the counsels' table, the jury box and
about a dozen cb.irs. Some of the latter are
usually occupied at some time during the day
by city ministers, who come into court to ob
tain ammunition for future sermons.
The afternoon session opened with the ex
amination of the first applicant from McKees
port, George Altmeyer, 111 Fifth avenue, has
a saloon and restaurant. His Honor bad re
ceived some information regarding Altmeyer,
and closely questioned him regarding his res
taurant, The applicant wanted to call the
Chief of Police of McKeesport to testify in his
behalf. The request was refused.
Margaret Breftinger, 126 Fourth street, said
she thought It was the law to apply for a li
cense, and wanted to get along better. Attor
ney Christy asked her if she did not get beer
delivered at the back gate of her boarding
house. This she denied, and said she knew
nothing of the occurence.
Frank Becker, of Market street, has a small
bucket trade. He was accused of selling to a
man who was known as a habitual drunkard.
The selling he acknowledged, but said that the
man was not known as described.
Daniel Butler, corner Fourth and Diamond
streets, does not have a license. His Honor
said there would be no additional licenses
granted In McKeesport.
james aorun, oi Jerome avenue, has no
license. He never asked for any. He said it
was his candid opinion temperance people pre
ferred to stpp at a house where liquor was sold.
They preferred to go to a house that was more
lively than a temperance hotel.
ONE MAN'S appearance.
Judge White said he had received several
letters strongly recommending him; hut his ap
pearance and answers did not confirm the
recommendations. The applicant replied that
he couldn't help the appearance part of it.
Robert T. Carothers, 121 and 126 Fifth ave
nue (National Hotel), said his total receipts
aside from liquors are from $55 to $60; from his
bar, from 535 to WO: on Saturdays, from $65 to
S1S0. The applicant was very closely ques
tioned. Mr. Christy Did you ever furnish liquor to
a theatiical company on Saturday night to be
used on Sundays?
"Well, did yu furnish more than they could
drink on Saturdays?"
"Do you sell liquor to Robert Warnickf
Samuel E. Carothers, of Fifth avenue, has
33 rooms In his house. His hotel receipts
average $30 a day; liquors, 78 45; on Satur
days, $140, and on the Saturday of a parade,

promised to go out of the business if the ladies
of the W. C. T. U. would let up on you?

A. J. Carver, of Fifth avenue, was refused a
license last year. He might have saved himself
the trouble of applying this year.
William J. Denny, of Fifth avenue, was also
refused last year, but made a fairly good show

waiting for a license. He may have to wait

Jacob Hugo, of 300 Fifth avenue, takes in
from $70 to $S0 a day; $250 to $300 on Saturdays;
$500 was the largest amount. It was this saloon
that the Sixth ward club wrecked in the last
campaign. He was asked If the sidewalks
were blockaded In front of his saloon. He said

"Do women get drinks?" asked Judge
"Yes, women along with their wives I mean
women along with their husbands."
Bennett Horr, 242 Fouth avenue, applied last
year; but, as his application was made out in
correctly, he did not get a license. Horr is a
Hungarian and does much toward controlling
these people. A special remonstrance was filed

"There are people that know everything,

George M. Loping. Fifth avenue, has a
license. His receipts vary from $35 to $150 a
day. He belonged to the Personal Liberty
Luke Lynch, of Diamond square, has a res
taurant, which he managed for his sister. Bbe
applied for a license and was refused. Judge
"White said he admired his candor and truth
fulness; but he cannot grant a liceuse under
the existing circumstances. It Beems his sister
owns the saloon, and be proposed to divide
profits with her.
J acob Bestwick was called. He testified tbat
Lynch had said .o him that he had liquor in his
cellar, was getting more, and proposed to sell
it, license or no license.
Mr. Lynch said tbat his sisters had purchased
whisky and wine from Moerlein, and that, as It
was paid for, he had to receive it, ., He denied
making the remark credited to him.
AN ISSUE OP VEEACITY.
The holding of meetings of a club in Linen's
sister's house was also brought out, Her
name is Mrs. Hestor, and her case was post
poned until the next term of the grand jury by
Captain Wishart arose and said: "The reason
the case was put off was that Attorney Still
wagon, the attorney for the defense, was in
the lobby of the grand jury room lobbying
with witnesses for the Commonwealth."
"That's a falsehood," said Mr. StlUwagon.
"Hit is true, it was very improper,' said
"It is a falsehood, and the remark was made
here for a certain motive."
"I can bring witnesses to prove that these
men were also in bis office," said Captain
"They are clients of mine," said Mr. Still
wagon. After a few more words the next ap
plicant was called.
Barney Morris had a short examination; so
short as to be discouraging.
Louis N. Morgan kept a grocery store and
had recently purchased the house for which he
is applying. It is a new place. Mr. Morgan
does not drink.
Judge White I don't think any hotel keeper
Patrick Nolan, 401 Fourth street, is a puddler.
He has kept boarders for two years. Nolan
was refreshingly candid.
"Now, don't you think it would he better if
no mill men would drink?"
"What would Pittsburg do if there were no
saloons?" said Nolan. He wanted to argue the
guestlon with Judge White. He said he bad
five children. "But mill men generally have
large families?" said the Court.
"Well, we have to work for them," said Mr.
"If anything would lead me to grant yon a
license," said the Court, "it would be your
argument that no saloons are necessary. I
rather like you. Mr. Nolan."
"So do I," said Mr. Stillwagon.
Mr. Nolan's chances are good.
DRAWING A COMPAEISON.
William McKay was then called. "Now why
should I give you a license instead of that good,
honest puddler?" asked the Court..
McKay claims to have the best restaurant in
Judge White I wish to Btate that nine
tenths of the restaurants described hero dur
ing this court are only mere shams, and that
the saloons were run merely to make money
out of their liquors.
The applicant made a remark about his elec-
trio light MIL The Court remarked that tallow
candles constituted the illumlnant itf many
saloons. "Pll consider your case, though," he
said, "as you have made a better speech in your
favor than the majority of lawyers could do." ,
Ernest Relchenbacb, of Diamond square, is
next door to Luke Lynch, and A J. Barton tes
titled that he went into the applicant's saloon
and asked for a meal about 2 o'clock in the aft
ernoon. The applicant informed him it was
too late in the day to serve a meal.
The applicant would not deny the charge.
Peter Speilman, Market street, now has a
Attorney Large I would like to know who is
that man's client (referring to Mr. Christy
when he arose to cross-question the applicant).
"The respectable citizens ot this Common
wealth," said Judge White.
"Who are they?" asked Mr. Large.
"There they are," said His Honor, referring
to the temperance people. "Any citizen can
come in here and question an applicant,"
"But he is not a citizen of McKeesport."
Attorney Christy attempted to question the
applicant, but Mr. Large interfered. The
Court told him that he would have to wait. He
