THE ISSUE DEFINED.
Mrs. J. Ellen Foster Advises How to
Argue the Amendment Question.
A LAKGEAUDIEKCE IS ALLEGHENY

THE T70EK TO BE COKTUf OED MIHOW
A large and very attentive audience was
congregated in the First United Presby
terian Church. Union avenue, Allegheny,
last night, listening to an address by Mrs.
J. Ellen Foster on the Constitutional
amendment Thelectnre of this well-known
prohibition advocate from Iowa was some
what of an advisory character, inasmuch as
the lady Ulustrath fly and pointedly sug
gested to her audience how to meet the
arguments of anti-Prohibitionists, and on
what grounds they ought to fight. She
The question to be decided in the State of
Pennsylvania on Juno 18 Is not a question of
total abstinence at all. Don't for a moment
wute jour time to discuss the moral phase of
the issue; leave that lor the present at rest.
The argument for the pledge is always going
on, and you can take it up again on June 19.
Keith er is the question of liquor as a medicinal
article the one of importance. Do not stop to
argue on such a matter. The time has been
when the world labored nnder the belief
that a drink of wine or brandy was good for
any ailment. That time is past. The first
class physicians of to-day use liquor very rarely
as a medicine.
Of course, if we abolish saloons, the sale of
liquor will be somewhat increased in the drug
store; but a drugstore can never be made the
loafing place of the low, disreputable drunk
ards, as saloons are. So we shall have
a porsr GAnrED anyhow.
Let us get the enemy on the run and we will
defeat him. From tne saloon to the drugstore,
and from there out of existence.
The question whether wine should be used at
the Lord's table is neither necessary to be dis
cussed now. It is not the question at issue.
When we nave the penitent sinner kneeling
down at the feet of Christ, asking for the for.
giveness of his sin, it will not be very difficult
to convince him that wine, the result of fer
mented crapes. Is not a proper representation
of the blood of our Lord.
Bnt the question which we must discuss, the
issue which is involved in this campaign to be
aeciaea on J nne is, is simpiv tnis: snail tne
distiller and the brewer and the saloon keeper
go on? That is all there is to it; nothing else.
The liquor business is claimed to be a great in
dustry. I understand by "an industry" a mode
of manufacture of a certain article which con
fers benefits upon the worker who is engaged
in its manufacture as well as upon the con
sumer, who receives it. The manufacture of
iron, steel, glass, cotton and wool are indus
tries. They nave made the American people
the richest nation on this globe. They are ben
eficial and useful to the producer as well as to
the consumer. How about the liquor man's
industry? It creates gold for the manufac
turer, and nothing but despair, desolationand
death to the consumer. That is his kind of
A LEOACT OF SATA1T.
But they say it has been a nsage among the
people for hundreds of years; the law has
sanctioned it, and you hare no right to abolish
it! Yes, it has been in existence for a long
time; but I think it is a legacy of Satan, and as
other things bad to vanish before the ever ad
vancmg mower of progress,sotaismustgo. We
used to burn rush candles and oil lamps to light
up our homes, but cow we use gas, and before
long we will use electricity. We are going
ahead and improving all the tune. Oar fore
fathers drank whisky; but we know better, and
we don't do It
Tbey say:- "But look at the loss of capital
and real estate invested in the liquor business."
Tuat is all right: the liquor man has to put up
with it. When railroads were introduced the
man who ran stage coaches and carriages bad
to lose his business, too; but the railroads were
Now. you mnst make ud tout minds to carrr
the amendment Carry it, no matter how! I
believe we were defeated in Massachusetts be
cause the people wanted to do business inele
cant decorum. Don't do it that way. Go to
the corners of the streets among your friends
and enemies, and show them where they are
wrong, and success is assured.

Mr. J. "W. Diehl and Eer..T. H. Chap

"Wednesday for the purpose of asking Secre
tary of the Treasury Windom to give the
East F.nd people the privilege of using a
piece of Government property on Ellsworth
avenue as & public park, returned yesterday.
Mr. Diehl, while talking about his trip,
"We went first to see the Hon. W. Win-
dom, and he assured us that he would do
anything in his power to give the use of the
lot to the people, if the law sanctioned inch
transfer. He expressed imself heartily in
favor of the project in every way. Then we
paid our respects to Surgeon General J. B.
Hamilton, of the XT. S. Marine Service, and
he, though very courteous, knocked all the
encouragement we had received from Mr.
Windom out of us.
" 'I want a hospital in Pittsburg,' he
said. I have all the money to build It and
Western Pennsylvania needs a marine
hospital the worst way, and, If I can have
my way, that institution will be erected
Tery shortly; for if It isn't put up on that
property it must be somewhere else.'
I told him," continued Mr. Diehl, "that
the place was at present a generaTdumplng
ground for rubbish, sewer pipes and gar
bage, and that we were willing to Tacate the
ground whenever the Government wanted it.
" So it is a general dumping ground?'
said Surgeon General Hamilton. 'Well, I
will see that that is stopped,' and he im
mediately dictated a letter to his representa
tive in. Pittsburg to be careful tuat such
cccs no occur again. However, we will
meet in a few days and report what we did
In Washington. The probability is that we
will buy the ground. Certain it is that we

Yesterday afternoon the following tele

secretary, was received, indicating that the
Bishop is not as sick as reported:
Airoo:rA, May 17. Bishop Tulgg had a
fainting spell last Saturday. Since then he is
steadily improving, and is able to sit up and
walk through his room daily.
N. J. O'Beilly.
This is the second time since BishoD
Tuigg's illness began that he has been given 1
up lor dying, ana yet puuea through an
right He is regarded by physicians as a
man of wonderful vitality. He is a Bishop
revered by the clergy beloved bjrall.Cath
ollcs. When he became Bishop he found
the church property all over the diocese in
rather bad shape. There had been many
young priests at work, and the prosperity of
the times had led them to invest too
much money in church property, ,They
had gone, in debt beyond,, their
power to liquidate, and the new
Bishop was forced to adopt stringent
measures to overcome the error. He event
ually succeeded, and although the means
he employed were, at the time, considered
harsh, Bishop Tuigg in the end won the
love and admiration of all his clergy.
Bishop Domenec shortly after resigned his
see, and retiring to his nome in Spain died,
Tenerated and respected by all! Bishop
Tnigg was then majie administrator of the
Allegheny diocese and bent all his energies
to straichten the financial complications
that bad occurred. In .December, 188Z, Heart
failure and paralytic troubles rendered him
unable to continue work. He took a journey
South to Charleston, S. C, and returned ap
parently in good health. But the second
day after his return, April 12, 1883, he was
stricken again and was forced to retire to
his home in Altoona.

X Belleveraon Sinn Commits Suicide Near
Jacob Amalong, a laborer, aged 38 years,
committed suicide yesterday morning in
Bailey's Grove, back of AHentown.
Amalong was a resident of Belleveraon.
The only friend living in Pittsburg is his
father-in-law, John Haddigk, of Allen
town, but he had not been at Mr. Haddigk's
place, and it is not known when he came
A man named August Heid, while pass
ing the grove between 7 and 8 o'clock yes-.
terday morning, heard a shot, but took no'
notice oi it. About 5 o'clock last evening
Amalong's body was fonnd in the field with
a bullet wound over the heart and a re
volver still in his hand. The body was
carried to Vierheller's undertaking rooms
and Coroner McDowell was notified.
'Squire Barr was deputized to hold the
inquest last night. Mr. Haddigk testified
that Amalong had been married about ten
years, but that he and his wife had not
lived happily together.
The revolver found was a new 38-caliber
gun. There was only one empty chamber.
The jury rendered a verdict of suicide,
and Amalong's body will be shipped to
Bellevernon to-day for interment.
Amalong was born and raised in Belle

murder of 'Captain A C. Nutt, in 1884, he

TOO HANI EXAMINATIONS.
Col. Parker Criticizes the State Normal
Colonel Parker, of Chicago, was in the
city a short time last night before he went
to New York. The Colonel had been lec
turing on educational subjects all week at
California. - ,
He says Pennsylvania is ripe for great ad
vancement in her schools, if a hustling
leader could be secured. The State has the
wealth, but lacks certain things in the edu
cational line. He thought strikes coiild
easily be prevented if the people were prop
erly educated and able to size up the situa
tion lor themselves. He had hoped that
Governor Beaver would take up the snbject
of intellectual training.
Colonel Parker thinks the nonrinl schools
are hampered by the rigid examinations
held so frequently. He says the time ot the
students is consumed cramming for these
various ordeals, and the consequence Is that
there is no intellectual development.

A BKK STRIKE ENDED. hva wm COLLEGIATE FEASTS. atoKT.iaB. -
The National Tube'bompahy Concede
the Demand3,of the Strikers.
OVER 2,000 MEN ARE PLEASED.
Old Wages Restored and a Sliding Bcale to
ItOERIS L. WHEAT ON PROHIBITION
The big strike is over and 2,000 oi the em
ployes of the National Tube "Works Co m
nanvntMcKeesDortwho were idle are ex-
pectedtobeat work to-day andMcKees
port is happy. The Tube "Works Company
granted the demand of the men, and Gen
eral Manager John H. Flaglerhas in course
ofpreparation a sliding scale which he
thinks will be both beneficial to the com
pany and the employes. The cbmpanygave
notice at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon that
it would restore the wages of a year ago
which means 10 and 15 per cent of an ad
vance and 6 per cent to laborers.
The idle men were increased yesterday, as
several more departments joined those who
went out the day before. The men gov
erned themselves and stuck together,
transacting their business in a business
like, systematic way, all of which counted
with the company and assisted them greatly
in winning the demand. The committee of
three called on Mr. Flagler yesterday
morning and made known their demand.
He treated them pleasantly, and told them
the company would consult its books, con
sider the matter and do the best it could for
them. The committee then reported to the
men at a meeting held later.
At 3 o'clock the company issued a notice
stating that the wages of one year ago would
be restored, dating from Monday next, and
that the works would resume in lull atonce.
The notice also stated, "that while the busi
nessof thepipetradein general does not war
rant an advance at this time, yet the com
pany felt If trade and prices Increase as is
expected that it anticipated now that which
it wnnld havn done later on."
The strike was precipated quickly, but
was conducted in a business like manner.
Speaking of it General Manager Flagler
While I am sorry our employes walked out
of the mills, I am pleased to know that -they
have largely severed themselves from the
Knights of Labor and the Amalgamated As
sociation. These organizations have drawn
large sums of money irom our men in dues,
and they received no commensurate return for
the same. Our men have always done well on
their own account. Having tho interest fore
most of the employes, the works and the city.
1 will always endeavor to be as fair, liberal
and considerate as circumstances will permit
and to this end I have in course of preparation
a sort of a sliding scale, or a summer and win
ter scale, of wages, which will be based on the
selling price of pipe. When the market is
good and prices the same wages will go up in
accordance, and will correspond when the mar
ket is dull and prices low, and will enable ns to
keep the works in constant operation. This
will benefit the men, the company and the city,
and all are interested in it. and if accom
plished, as I expect It will, the day tor strikes
and idleness will have passed.

William McGregor, of the stonemasons'
committee that settled the strike, says it
was on a guaranteed basis of 38 cents, not

not bring the scale up to 40. was left subject
to arbitration. (

JUDGE WHITE PRESIDES AT ONE,
And Was Loudly Applauded at Every Eef-
ereace to His flame.
PEESIDEKT PATTON'S WITH EFFORT
The seventh annual banquet of the Pitts
burg Alumni Association of Allegheny Col
lege was held at the Seventh Avenue Hotel
last night About 100 covers were taken,
and until the time when Judge
White as toast master introduced the
speakers the guests enjoyed themselves
in pleasant conversation. The sexes seemed
to be divided In equal numbers, and the
presence of the ladies added dignity to the
occasion, There was an absence of floral
decorations on the tables, but the bouquets
of the handsome misses more than made up
for the deficiency.
Judges Wickham, of Beaver; Wood, of
West "Virginia, and White, of Pittsburg,
represented the legal profession.
Finally Judge White arose and said he
regretted the hour was so late, and for that
reason he declined to say much,
The first man introduced was President
W. G. Williams, who responded to the
toast "Allegheny College." He said :
THE PBESITJENT'S BESFONSE.
"! represent to-night the absent guest,
our college. We speak of the institution as
our mother. I bring to you to-night her
greeting." Continuing he spoke of the
bright prospects of the college. This year
the largest number of students in the
sciences and the arts in the 75 years of the.
school will be graduated,and the college has
been steadily growing. He told bis hearers
what he thought the ideal college is.lt should
neither be the academy nor the university.
He deplored the fact that a number of
persons hold diplomas who have only
finished about two years of the average col
lege curriculum." The university is in
tended to train men to be lawyers, doctors,
editors, etc It takes a man to be a judge,
especially in Allegheny county, and when
this reference to Judge White was made the
audience applauded vigorously.
"It is not a question of the number of
students that make the college, but the.
quality of its work. The other day the
facnlty of Amherst decided not to receive
any more students after 300 had been ad
mitted, for the reason that a larger number
could-not be properly educated.
NOT MEBE SCIENTISTS.
"Better make men out of the bovs than
mere scientists and mathematicians, and this
can only be done by officering this ideal
college with manly men. You can't make
this ideal college in a day. It is not a
Hon. John F. Dravo spoke for the Pitts
burg alumni. He said he was particularly
interested in the commercial and trade in
terests ot the country, and he believed there
is as much genins represented in the
mechanical pursuits as in the learned pro
fessions. Prof. W. S. Jackman followed on the
"Becolleotions of College Days," in a fa
cetious speech, and then came Stephen
Quinon, who upheld the "Press." He
claimed that a college, like a drygoods store,
needed to be advertised. Each has its wares

Addresses were made by others present,
among them Judge Woods, of West Vir
ginia. THE PBIXCXTOH BANQUET.
At the Duquesne, also, last night the
Princeton College Association had their an
nual banquet. President Patton, fresh from
Princeton, was present and made the prin
cipal address. Thirty-fiver sat down at the
feast The tables were handsomely deco
rated with the fairest of cut flowers. A glee
club, composed of members of the associa
tion, furnished some lively college songs for
William Scott, President of the associa
tion, acted as toast master, A number of
impromptu replies were made to various
Mr. Scott, in a highly eulogistic speech,
introduced Dr. Patton, who was received
with three rousing cheers. Many oi those
present had never seen the doctor before,
and his witty effort was appreciated through
out A COMPETITOB OF DEPEW.
He has an established reputation as a
postprandial speaker, and it is understood
in literary circles that the Doctor is a close
competitor of Dr. Depew in- this particular
. Hebetranbv statin? that he had nave
doubts about the ability of the Princeton
ball team to do up the 'Tale
club in the championship games.
He believes that1 athletics properly
cultivated should be one of the leading fea
tures of the ideal college. The Doctor said
he had been asked to write an article for the
North American Review on how far the col
lege should control the personal actions of
the students. He is in favor of some one
standing in the position in loco parentis to
every ooy, out ne aoesn't want tne parentis
to be a grandmother. He believes in the
cultivation of the largest individualism and
TOO STEICT EtfLES.
As the boys-will be free 'agents when out
of the college, he holds theywill make bet
ter men if tbey are not tied, down while at
school with too many strict rules.
He then spoke of the changes made in the
college curriculum and 'the progress
achieved in the work of the institution.
Among the guests present an the Prince
ton banquet were Dr. Patton, of the class of

The Slay MuIo Festival.
It is a significant" fact that at the ap
proaching great Hay Festival they use only
the famous Stemway pianos. All the other
piano makers were crazy to get their make
of instrument into the 31uslc Festival, bnt
the high artistic oharacter of the performers
and the elevated style ot their music con
vinced the managers that none but the Stein
way Grand could possibly fill the bill. At
the late Oiimore concert the Stelnway
Grand, also, was the only instrument which
Hr. Gllmore thought fit to be used in grand
concerts. This iaet must be highly gratify
ing to the thousands of possessors of the
Stelnway, and also to the Messrs. H. Eleber
& Bro who have the honor to represent
them in oursection of country.
