In Their late Resolution ,to
Down the Milk Dealers.
ANOTHER MEETING IS HELD
And Some of tho Rural Waverers
. Are Brought Into the Fold.
HEAKTIUE A3IERRI WAR GOES OX.
The Creamery Company Hustled and the
Dealers TVere on Hand,
BUT THE CONSUMER GETS THE BENEFIT.
The war between the milk dealers of
Pittsburg and Allegheny and the Chartiers
Creamery Company commenced yesterday
in dead earnest. There was a lively hustling
going on at the various depots in the morn
ing, when the milk arrived. Fortunately,
lowever, for the people, enough 'milk was
obtained to supply all their wants, and
while there was a scarcity in some parts of
the cities, it was not sufficiently large to in
convenience anybody.
Most of the snippers, true to their agree
ment with the creamery company, shipped
their cans to that concern, and Mr. Heed
said that he received 10,000 gallons of milk
during the morning, and that he got rid of
nearly all of it. Most of the farmers ac
companied their cans to the city, and held a
secret meeting during the afternoon in the
building of the creamery company, to compare
notes on the situation. There were over 100
of the shippers, and,
WHEN THE CONFERENCE ADJOUKNED,
about 4 o'clock, the men all came out of the
room with smiling faces, which indicated that
their discussion bad yielded a satisfactory re
sult. iir. Irwin, of Evans City, again presided, and
Mr. Stewart acted as Secretary.
Mr. F. Brown, one of the largest shippers,
stated to a Dispatch reporter that the meet
ing had been held at the urgent solicitation of
many of the shippers.
"The fact of the matter is," said Mr. Brown,
"a good many of ns who had not been at last
Wednesday's meeting did not exactly under
stand the arrangement entered into with Mr.
Heed, and so a good many said tbat they would
continue to send their milk to the dealers, as
heretofore. It almost looked as if there was
to be a break in our union, and to prevent
that, we called together all who were in the
city and explained to them just how the ar
rangement had been made, and wbat the object
of it is. Well, the result was that we con
vinced them all, and before we adjourned we
passed the following resolution:
" "The members of the Milk Producers' As
sociation of Western Pennsylvania are of the
unanimous opinion tbat the agreement entered
into with the Chartiers Creamery Company as
agent for the sale of their product, is a good
one and for the benefit as well as protection of
the association. We, therefore, resolve to ad
here to it, to the very letter.
MOKE DETEE5IINED NOW.
"Yes, sir, the shippers are more determined
than ever to stand by Mr. Reed, and you will
find that the dealers will have even less milk
to-morrow and the next day than they
had to-day. But there is one thing tbat
we want to impress upon the public, and it was
also spoken of at the meeting. We have no
wish to increase the price of the milk to the
consumer, and you will find that it will not be
done. By tbis arrangement the milk In the
city will become cheaper, if anything. It cer
tainly will be of better quality, because we
bare enjoined upon Mr. Reed, our agent, tbat
be shall not allow any other milk to be sold to
the public except the pure article. The milk
which is shipped into the city one day shall be
sold on that -day; all that Is not sold to go to
bis creameries in Washington county, to be
made irto butter."
Mr. Reed said: "If the dealers will not con
sent to buy from me I will sell milk
TO THE BETAILEE AND CONSUMER,
Myself, and the latter shall have the benefit of
the price. There shall be no shortage of milk
among the consumers, and all shall have good
milk."
From the information that could be obtained
bn the subject it is now certain that the people
will get the benefit of this war between the milk
dealers and producers, because a cutting of
prices will be the next move in the operation,
and the milk will get cheaper. The Chartiers
Creamery Company seems to be determined, in
conjunction with the farmers, to undersell
anybody who does not buy milk from them.
One of the farmers saidyesterday afternoon:
-We have lost a good deal of money already,
and we do not mind losing as much again, so
long as we gain the victory in the end."
The above is one side of the story, though
much the larger and more prominent side at
present. The dealers nad a great hustle at
both the Panhandle and Fort Wayne depots,
getting such short supplies as crrao to hand.
They had men in Ohio buying milk last night,
and say they expect larger supplies to-day. At
the Fort Wayne depot L748 callons of the es
sential and life-giving fluid were received yes
terday, and the dealers claim to have captured
all but 232 gallons of that. Will they be able
to do as w ell to-day J
BEATING THtlE CHILDREN.

Alleged Cruel Habits.
Patrick Layct was sued by his wife before
Alderman Porter yesterday for aggravated
assault and battery. She alleges he is in
the habit of coming home drunk, and that a

and threw a chair at their 15-year-old daughter,
which struck her on the arm and broke it, after
which he turned in and beat her. The defend
ant will have a hearing to-day.

Telegraph Company, and George J. "Ward,

at the Seventh Avenue Hotel while en route to
Chicago.
Mr. Chandler said there was nothing new in
telegraph circles. His company had made the
rates as low as possible, but they were main
taining them. There is no danger of the com
pany selling out to the Western Union.

"THE
THEY'LL -COME HIGH,
Bui We Must Have Those Mononga
hela Dams and Locks,
SO COL. ALLEN IS PUSHING THINGS.
Important Testimony, Tending to Fix Lock
No. 4 at 236,000.
THE EVIDENCE TO BE CLOSED TO-DAT
The case of the United States against the
Monongahela Navigation Gompany, insti
tuted for the purpose of condemning the
lock and dam system of that company, and
nltimately making the Monongahela River
, a free navigable stream, was opened at the
company's office, in the Bakewell building,
at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
All the viewers but J. "M. Clark were
present. Colonel Alien, the United States
District Attorney, represented the Govern
ment, and George Shiras, Jr., and R. B.
Camahan looked after the interests of the
company. There were also present a num
ber of Government official's and several oi
the stockholders and officers of the naviga
tion company, all of whom were deeply in
terested in the testimony.
The first witness produced by the company
was John H. Drake, of Middletown, N. Y..
one of the heaviest contractors and builders
in the bridge and dam line in the United
States. Ho testified tbat he was not a civil
engineer, but had been engaged in river and
railroad contracting for 20 years. He was the
contractor for lock No. 4 of the navigation
company, which was completed In 1884. In his
examination in chief the witness testified, in
answer to Mr. Shiras, tbat he believed the
difference in the value of a dam constructed
and put in place and one which bad been com
pleted and stood a practical test of three years,
which is the time generally deemed necessary
to determine the permanent qualities of these
dams, would reach in most cases, and in the
one in question particularly, 50 per cent of the
cost of construction in favor of the latter. He
said some contractors wonld say the dam that
stood the test would be worth only 25 per cent
more than that which had not, but the majority
of them, like himself, placed it at 50.
He also testified as to the history of theMo
nongahela river in regard to floods, showing it
to be the most difficult stream in the country
on which to maintain a lock or dam, not only
on account of the rapidity of the current, but
because of the freauent floods and washouts.
BUT HE HADN'T SEEN IT. '
On cross-examination the winess admitted to
Colonel Allen that he had never seen the dam in
question, and thathe did not know the object of
his visit to Pittsburg, which was in response to
a telegram received Saturday night to be in
Pittsburg yesterday.
LV. Hoag, Jr., the next witness, corroborated
the first witness, but placed the Increased
value by reason of the successful test at 20 per
cent. This witness also admitted that he had
never examined lock and dam No. 7, and per
sonally had no knowledge of its construction
or stability.
In answer to Colonel Allen he stated that
he would be willing to guarantee the dam for
the next four ears only on condition that he
be given tbe care of the dam during that
period.
William D. Stratton, of Middletown, N. Y., a
partner of the first witness, corroborated him,
and placed the increased value of the nroperty
at 30 per cent over the original cost of construc
tion. Witness never saW the dam in dispute,
and could not testify as to its qualities.
Colonel T. P. Roberts, chief engineer of the
Monongahela Navigation Company, testified
that he has been a civil engineer since 1863, and
has been chief engineer of the navigation com
pany since 18S4;has had many years' experience
in the river line and was for considerable time
a member of the corps of United States Engi
neers of AVescem Pennsylvania; knew when
lock and dam No. 7 was constructed, and was
acquainted with its details and its materials.
After the three years' test had been made, he
believed it added at least 25 per cent to the
value of the dain. In addition to this he
thought the deposits of silt which from year to
year have been made in this dam have in
creased its value at least 15 per cent, this be
cause the debris had filled all crevices that
might have made the dam weak during the
first year and formed in itself a solid mass
almost as strong as tbe bank of the river itself.
He testified to the difficulty of constructing
and maintaining dams ou this river on account
of the frequency of floods and the power of the
current.
WHY IT WASN'T SAFE.
He also detailed the numerous risks assumed
in building dams on this river, and said it was
never safe to place a close estimate on the
probable cost ol a dam on a stream like this.
He then cited the case of the Davis Island dam,
which was originally estimated at $450,000, but
when completed was found to have cost $980,000.
Mr. Carnahan then read the report ot United
States Engineer Merrill, showing the estimate
of the cost of Dam No. 8, which is being con
structed by the Government about five miles
above No. 7, of the navigation company, and
which Colonel Roberts testified was of the same
character and size, generally, as No. 7. This
dam, it is estimated, will cost 2236,000.
ColoneLAllen, on behalf of the Government,
objected to all testimony offered to show that
the dam and lock had enhanced in value by
reason of the deposits of silt, or because they
had stood the three years' test. In cross-examining
Mr. Stratton he proved that Dams Nos.
1, 2 and S of the MonongahelaNavigation Com
pany had all suffered from washouts, or breaks,
even after standing 12 years without apparent
defects. This, the Colonel claimed, was suf
ficient to show that Lock and Dam No. 7 might
sufferer in the same way two hours after they
bad been purchased by tbe Government, even
if such things could be considered In the pres
ent case, but they could not, for the reason
tbat the act of Congress under which tbe pres
ent proceedings are instituted direct the view
ers to estimate and determine tbe cost of tbe
dam as it stands to-day, and that it was unfair
for tbe company even to assume to charge the
Government for the gifts of nature which may
or may not have made the property of greater
value than when it was constructed.
The testimony being admitted subject to tbis
general objection, tbe relevancy of this testi
mony will have to be determined before the
viewers can pass upon the case. The company
will close its case by noon to-day.
At a meeting of Battery B last night it was
decided to leave for New York to participate

SOCIALISTS WERE THERE.
So There Whs Not Absolute Hnrmony at
tbe Henry George Single Tax Meeting
Land for Everybody.
The Henry George followers, or Single
Tax men, met in the hall over Ruppel's
restaurant, 212 Smithfield street, last night.
If the size of the audience present is any
criterion the George theory is on the wane in
this city, there only being 25 present. Charles
Loeth was b ooked for an address; but tbe gen
tleman failed to materialize, so tbe evening
was spent in extemporaneous discussion and
debate upon Georgeism, Socialism and An
archism. Thomas Grundy presided, but at
times bis efforts were futile to check the en
thusiastic ones who were wont to vent their
views after studiously absorbing the arguments
laid down in "Progress and Poverty."
By invitation, three Socialists were invited
to attend the meeting, in order to change opin
ions, and this organization was represented by
well-known Mr. Frank Gessner.
The first speaker who endeavored to demon
strate tbe one-tax theory was C. F. Wright, a
carpenter, who averred that the -George sys
tem was the only true one as to taxation of the
citizen, but admitted that it would be difficult
to formulate It into a law. He said the wrong
impression was prevalent as to the taxation of
land, some thinking tbat their land wonld be
levied according to the extent of their estates.
This, be said, was not the case, but tbat it was
taxed'only as to its value.
He continued: "The average worklngman is
now a slave to tbe capitalist, and what we want
is land of our own, which, If we cultivate it, is
our capital absolute."
From a. Socialistic standpoint Mr. Gessner
took exceptions to many things said, which
was a signal for a general volley of "hearme's"
from the George men.

A GRAND THOROUGHFARE.
I
That li What the City Contemplates, by
Ordinance, for Diamond Street The
Controller's Report and Nevr Commit
tees. Probably the most important and general
ly interesting question that went before
Conncils yesterday was the ordinance drawn
up by City Attorney Moreland and intro
duced In Select branch for the general widen
ing of Diamond street. The scope of this im
provement Is great; whether or not it should
be greater, and include a provision to cut the
upper part of Diamond street down 10 or 12
feet, Is now a paramount question. Several of
those persons interested in getting the matter
before Councils think the grading movement
should come now.
As to just what the ordinance in its present
form contemplates, the following statement
from Major Moreland will show:
The street Is to he widened on the north side,
where 20 feet Is to be added to the thoroughfare.
It Is to lead directly through the market house as
far down as Liberty street. Through the market
Jionse an arcade is to be built The property
holders on the north side of the street are to pay
the expense of the project, and the city is not to
be made to pay anything at all toward It. The en
tire street, upfront Liberty to Grant, will, If this
project finally prevails, be 20 feet wider than Its
present widest part, which will make it a business
thoroughfare through the center of the city.
Next in importance, perhaps and of more
general interest because affecting the entire
city, was the annnal report of Controller Mor
row, presented in the Common branch. The
Controller calls attention to what he deems the
fallacy of the Finance Committee in estimating
among the city revenues more fees for liquor
licenses than will be granted or paid, and
larger returns from outstanding taxes than are
ever collected from year to year. He suggests
that this latter item be not estimated as a re
ceipt hereafter, so that there shall not be the
accustomed annnal deficiency. Ho also criti
cises the committee for interfering with his
purchase of bonds, from the sinking funds, and
reports and suggests this:
Up to the time the Finance Committee took the
action referred to, in October. 1 had purchased
about poo.000 of city bonds, and from thence to
the end of the fiscal year there was bought about
fJO, 000 more, making the total amount purchased,
since commencing in April last, in round num
bers, about fl50,000. I would recommend that the
Mayor, Controller and Treasurer to be consti
tuted an ex-offlcfo board to make purchases tor
the sinking funds and that all matters relating to
the care and management of the same be reposed
In their hands.
Appended to the Controller's communication

In the suit of Charles, Harbach for the

Kirth, Judge Ewing rendered a decision
ior the defendant.
About 12 years ago Harbach secured a mort
gage on a piece of property. Two lots of the
piece were subsequently sold at Sheriff's sale
on a mechanics' lien, thereby divesting the
mortgage.
Tbe plaintiffs claimed that the mortgage ap
plied to a piece of ground on which a house
had been built, and not to tbat sold by the lien.
Judge Ewing couldn't see it in that light.

TUESDAY, -APKHi 9,
THBBOCKYMfflD-UP
For Those Sural Aspirants to Retail
License Emoluments.
.M'KEE'SEOCKS RAKED OVER A FIRE
After All Other Country Applicants Had
Slid Past on Time.
WHOLESALERS ON DECK TO-MOEEOW
The Allegheny county retail license ticker
ceased to tick last evening, just as the
Court's appetite gently reminded His Honor
of the approach of supper time. Attorney
Yost, oi the Law and Order League, had
meanwhile spoiled the appetites of several
McKee's Bocks applicants. Things went
like clockwork all day long. Judge "White
kept the License Court pendulum swinging,
and the TV. C. T. TJ. impediments to the
balance wheel got out of the way; but "the
great dial of justice for that bar which is
not so intimate with the bench as is the
other bar showed scarcely any definite signs
as to the "time of day" for applicants, ex
cept for the goodly number of those whose
"hour had come." The latter could in
many instances read the dial without the
aid of those minute and second hands which
the Court will attach when its three mem
bers get down to their work together to
"regulate things."
From Marshall township, at the ontset,
there was the Frederick Kiley they spoke of
so highly as the only applicant from that
rural retreat; from Mifflin came James
Briggs, who makes five times as much at
his bar as at his table; from Dravosburg,
William J. Coats, who mines coal, but wants to
wash for gold In Guzzler's Gulch, where license
was refused last year; from Duquesne, Charles
Downloy, whom the temperance people
favored, if they did anybody; from near Dra
vosburg, William -J. Horsey, who made three
times as much at his baron pay days as on
Other days: from Duquesne, also, Charles Don
ohue, who was told that he and Downloy
couldn't both have license; from Moss Side,
Thomas D. Davis, who takes in five times as
many ducats for drinks on Saturdays as on
other days, and then, from near by, Thomas
Hilton, Fred W. Haberman, Henry Koch.John
Linn, John Morris and Patrick King together,
John Steiner, William Sharp, Patrick J. How
ard (a miner injured for life and anxions to
succeed), Joseph Conway and August Gold
strohm. The latter was opposed by tbe P. R.
R, and said its officials were "very cranky any
way."
THEY, -WENT SWIMMINGLY. x
Charles Jenkins and Austin Brukardwent
tbrougn swimmingly, as did also Magdallna
Brindie, from near Sharpsbnrg. Jacob Fross
said his was.the first place out the road from
SharpsburgforlG miles, and be had rheuma
tism. Philip Howe and John Kammer were re
fused last year, and His Honor told Chris
Maeder, of the Kittanning road, that he was
too near the borough limits, and granting him
a license at low township rates would be dis
criminating against others within the Uneswbo
must pay higher. Henry T. Thomas and Joseph
Zcoick followed: and so Marcus Jenny, J. F. D.
Keating. Wm. Keown and Chris Schanzen
back, without incident. But Mrs. A. M. Hoff
man, of Robinson township, who was refused
last year, said she thought the Court had made
a mistake in her case; ditto Charles Beck, of
Reserve township. Thomas Boebm bad been
for 20 years a botcher; Adam Eberi and Charles
Fath tailed to answer: Loba Happ happened to
be ten squares from the city line and wanted
license to make a better living, and Lewis Heyle
was refused last year.
In the afternoon Mrs. Margaret McOnlre made a
favorable Impression, and Daniel Pflefler, of the
haw mill Valley plank road, told how he managed
to keep an orderly bouse 1. e., by means of a
good, plucky ivlfe and the right end of a broom
stick. Franz Weckcl wound up Reserve town
ship; Kose A. Flood, of Scott, had withdrawn,
but James Carmlchael hadn't, thongh he may.
M lltlam 8. Davis, ot Conltersvllle, South Ver
sailles, had three friends who, with himself, con
stituted a "club, " thongh not the "Big Four,"
suggested by Mr. Christy. They drank two kegs
of beer a week. William T. Armstrong, ofHtowe,
had sold to ltlcbard Fewer and others who drank
a good bit. Fewer, being one of the applicants,
here skulked out of the room, and did not answer
when his name was called. Theresa Ueusih, of
Chartiers (near McKee's Kocks), said she bad not
sold, bnt had given away, a flask of the ardent
that was produced in evidence against her.
THE COTJBT AT THE KOCKS.
William Lamb has a license now, and takes in
about (10 per day and double that amoant on Sat
urdays. He admitted having some tronble at his
place In putting a man out. Afterward he sued
the man before 'Squire Bryan for assault and bat
tery, and the man was fined.
Jodge Whife Did the 'bqulre fine the man?
Mr. Lamb Yes, sir, he did.
Jndge White-How often does the Court or
Quarter Sessions sit at McKee's Kocks?
Mr. Lamb I don't know.
Judge 'White They tell me It generally sits at 6
o'clock. Now, there was a man cnt another
man's throat down there some time ago. Did
those men drink in your place?
Mr. Lamb-Yes, sir; they had some drink In my
place about A o'clock In the afternoon, but not
after tbat. They were sober then.
William McCarthy was the next, and he had
only filed his bond last week.
John bchlndebuttee said his receipts were about

F. P. Stecdle was refused last year.
Theodore bmith has a license and says be takes
In from tl8 to (20 per day, f 10 or which Is for liquor.
Jndge white Oh, now, more than that?
Mr. smith Well, jsay 15.
Jndge White Oh, cornel more than that?
Mr. Smith Well, on pay days about J250.
Jndge White I thought you would own up.
The applicant stated tbat he has a large hotel,
and furnishes irom 75 to 103 meals per day. and en
tertains a big crowd of railroaders.
Al Young was called next, and as the annllcant.
with his large, rnddy face, came np, the Court
smiled and said: "I remember your case from last
year."
Mr. Young Well, Judge, If 1 don't get a license
I guess I will have to root. I don't come here
playing the charity act. I come here on the dead
square.
Saying which Mr. Young proceeded to seat him
self on the table.
Jndge White That's right. I don't like people
who come here and not tell the truth.
Mr. Young Well. Judge. 1 come here to tell the
truth and to try and get a license for Al Young.
Judge White How many licenses do you think
there thould be down at Chartiers?
Mr. Young Well, Jndge, that's for yon and not
for me. If yon grant any, why, let Al Young in.
I have got a big house now. and can accommodate
travelers. I also have a large stable.
Judge White Suppose ldou't grant any licenses
down there
Mr. Young Well, ir you knock me out let the
place go dry, or else give me an equal chanco with
the other men. ,
SOMETHING OP A I-OSEB.
Judge White-Well, who will I knock out In
order to give you a license? You understand, 1
won't Increase the number of saloons down there.
Mr. Young That is a question for yourself? I
didn't come hereto talk about my neighbors, or
to say an thing against anybody.
Judge White Have you sold anything In the
past year?
Mr. Young-No, sir, 1 did not. I got a box of
bottled beer occasionally and drank it myielf;
sometimes some or my friends helped mc.
Judge White oh, you have friends?
Air. Yonng Yes, Judge, I havo lots of them.
The 'Squire there (pointing to 'Squire Miles
Bryan, who is the clerk of the Court) hclos me
sometimes.
A general laughed followed, in wnlch tho Judge
Joined heartily.
Judge White I only have this to say. Your
candor and manliness makes me feel as though I
could trust yon better than any man down there.
Mr, Young You can, Jndge; and in don't obey
the law, there are plenty of people (pointing at
Cantain Wlshart) who will watch me and make
me obey tbe law. Good day. Judge!
bamuel Busier was the first applicant from
Shaler township. He did not apply last year.
W. H. Fannerfe has a license now, and takes In

MUST STUDY LANGUAGES.
Frank Bosnian said he kept a boarding house
and cigar store, bnt as he could speak but little
English, and had only been naturalized last year,
tbe Court disposed of him in short order, saying
that, he would not grant a license to a man who
couldn't speak English.
Conrad Sontag was refused last year; Adolph
Schopper keeps a restaurant; George W.
Weltbans Is at present a barkeeper, bnt would
like to run a place for himself.
William Stevenson was the only applicant from

WORK FOR THE 6,000.
Nearly ThntMnnyMonon Miners Resume
Operation! liter Only a Short Shut
Down Railroad miners' Wage nnd
Other Industrial News.
After a shutdown of only a week's dura
tion, the Monongahela river miners, with
the exception of those employed by Homer
& Roberts, resumed work yesterday morn
ing. About 6,000 men in all are affected by
the resumption, and what at first was
thought wonld prove a serious affair for the
miners, has ended in a way that is highly
satisfactory to both the miners and their
employes.
During the entire winter there Tiad been a
general complaint by the mine owners of
tbe dullness in the river coal trade. Tbe men
rarely worked full time, and both sides suf
fered. On Friday, March 29, the mine owners held a
meeting and decided to close up their mines on
the following Monday. This decision was car
ried out, and 6,000 miners were thrown idle for
an indefinite periodi
Tbe coal trado took a sudden upward turn,
however, and the prospects are much brighter.
This led the owners to order an immediate re
sumption, which took effect yesterday.
A meeting of the railroad coal operators of
Western Pennsylvania will be held in this city,
sometime during tbis week, to consider the de
mands of the miners. At a meeting the latter
decided to ask 76 cents per ton for all railroad
coal mined during the coming year. The scale
for the year extends from May 1 to Anril 30 of
the following year. The scale for this year is
as yet unsigned.
Tho operators think the miners' demand is
too high, and that the price per ton of mined
coal should not exceed 70 cents or thereabouts.
Tbov claim that, owing to the higher rates and
competition, it Is impossible to make a fair
profit. It is thought that a compromise will be
made, and that no trouble will result.
THE AKMSrEONG MONUMEJlT.
The Contract Awarded and tbo-Worlt to bo

The Thomas A. Armstrong Monument
Association met last night at,the rooms of
the Amalgamated Association, on Smith
field street, to examine the models and designs
subm!ttedfor a monument to the late Mr.

the request.

The employes of the Westinghouse Air
Brake Works (not the Electric "Works, as
was at first rumored,) went to work at re
duced hours yesterday. The men have been
working "time-and-a-half," but, in order to
keep all men employed, they will only work
eight hours per day. One thousand men are
affected by the change.

Texas Dlflerential.
The Pittsburg Committee of Freight
Agents meets this morning. One of the
subjects to be considered will be Texas
differentials. All of the local roads, with the
exception of tbe Baltimore and Ohio, claim
tbat the through rates to Texas points, as pub
lished by the Southwestern roads, are illegal.
After using them for two years they sud
denly wake up to tbis fact, and the result is
that Pittsburg shipners are now charged tbe
sum of two locals. 2 he Cotton Belt, however,
is still using the original rate.
While the local roads individually iave with
drawn these differentials, tbe committee, as a
body, has not taken action on the matter.
It is now rumored that the roads regret their
hasty action, and it is possible the old Texas
differentials will be restored, much to the joy
of Pittsburg shippers.

Resolutions Upon the Death of James Cal
lery. Office of the )
Pittsbueo and Westeen B't Co.,
Allegheny, April 8, 1880. )
Died, after a life of great usefulness, at
his home, Hiland avenue, Pittsburg, on
Fridav morning, April 5, James Callery,
President of this company. Mr. Callery
has been identified with this road from its
commencement, being connected with the
Pittsburg and Hew Castle road, out of
which and others the Pittsburg and West
ern was formed. His knowledge of Pitts
burg and its interests indicating to him
early the importance of another outlet for
its products, induced him to invest in the
securities of the road, and so great was his
confidence tbat he largely staked his for
tune on the result. His clear vision, which
was not clouded by any doubts and mis
givings, warranted the investment the ends
attained having demonstrated the correct
ness ot his judgment Alas, just as he was
about to realize the full fruition of his in
vestment, he was called away, not, however,
until he had shown that with railroads and
railroad management he was a master.
Mr. Callery came here when qnitea young
man, and continuously from that time to
the last of his busy life there was not a day
that he was not adding to the wealth of this
community, which he loved so dearly.
As a business man his judgment com
manded the respect of his associates. His
i'oyous nature made him friends wherever
le was known. 2fo one worthy appealed to
him in vain for either friendly advice or
substantial aid. His counsel will be missed
in the management of the many corporations
in which he was interested, and by none
more than by the Pittsburg and Western
Bailway Company, the success of which is
largely due to his zeal, confidence and devo
tion to its best interests.
At a meeting of the directory, this day
held, the above minute is made "a record on
the books of this company, and it is ordered
that the same be published and a copy sent
to the family of our late president.
