The Homestead Men Deny That They
Are Now on a Strike.
8-HOUR MASS MEETING TO-NIGHT.
Glassblowers' Delegates Instructed on the
lESTEEDAI'S GRIND OF TEE LABOEMILL
There is trouble in the Trades Council
over a matter which President Gompers, of
the Federation of Labor, may have to take
hold of before he leaves the city. The
Knights of Labor have been charged with
organizing men who the Federation men
struck against, and there is a war brewing
between the officers of the two labor organ
izations. A meeting of the Trades Building
League was held last night, when the mat-
ter was discussed. The subject also caused
heated remarks in the Trades Council meet
ing Saturday evening, and may lead to the
withdrawal of some of the delegates.
About two months ago the walking dele
gate of that part of the building trades,
Mr. J. C. Beck, ordered a strike among the
tile cutters and slate roofers employed by
W. H. Aiken and Scott White, of this
HOW IT CAME ABOUT.
The Marble, Slate and Tile "Workers'
TJnion and the Slate Hoofers' Union or
dered the strike on account of some of
the men in both establishments refusing to go
into the unions which are attached to the
Federation of Labor. ,
About a week ago, it is claimed by some of
the strikers, President Joseph L. Evans,
of the Trades Council, organized the men then
at work in the two shops, and against whom
the federation men struck. The men formed
a local assembly, and a charter was applied for
through. District Assembly No. 3, of this city.
The new local was asked to send delegates to
the Trades Council, which they did, and the
men appeared at the meeting Saturday night.
When they presented their credentials other
representatives at the meeting protested
against the men being admitted, claiming that
tbey had refused to join their respective trades
unions. The newly-organized men stated that
their reason for not joining was that the Fed
eration men were "floaters" and not residents
of the city. Tbey came here when they could
make mure money in this city than they could
anywhere else and were a detriment to the
trade. The Federation men denied that this
was the case. They stated that nearly all of
them were permanent residents of this city,
and were as good union men as could be f oilnd
anywhere in the country.
MB. ROSS BEFCSES TO INTERFERE.
Walking Delegate Beck went to Master
Workman Boss, of the district, and asked the
latter to protest against the charter being
issued. Mr. Boss stated that be bad nothing
to do with the matter, although be is at the
head of the Knights in this city. The delegate
then went to President Evans, of the Trade
Council, but got no satisfaction there either.
A conference between the council of the
Building Trades' League, Walking Delegate
Beck and President Evans, of the Trades'
Conncil, will be held to-morrow evening to set
tle the difficulty. Besolutions have been put
in shape for presentation at tbe meeting to
protest agaiu.t the charter being issued to the
.SBjooal Assembly. It is suted that the firms
by whom the men were employed were in
strumental in having them organized. When
the strike was ordered the union contractors
of the city withdrew their patronage from the
firms and tbe latter lost considerable money.
It is stated that thev wanted all their men to
be organized, and by getting them into the
Knights of Labor hoped that they would get
back tbe trade they had lost. Tbe matter has
been brought to the attention of President
Gompers, who will be asked to give an opinion
on the complicated question.
A STRIKE MAY COME.
Bnt There U Now Ko Excitement or Any
' thing Final at Homestead One Man Wbo
Thinks Thpre Won't be Trouble.
The members of tbe Amalgamated Associa
tion at Homestead are still solidly opposed to
tbe sliding scale which the Carncgics propose to
have to go into effect on June 15. A prominent
member of the Amalgamated Association said
to a reporter: "We'are all still firm in our de
termination not to sign the scale. In fact, tEo
time for signing is now past, and it has not been
When asked what would be the result if the
manufacturers should be just as determined
that it should be signed, be said:
"We cannot tell until the repairs have been
made and tbe works put in operation. It will be
at least three weeks yet before the mill will be
"Do you think a strike would be the result if
the manufacturers, insist upon the signing of
the new scale!" the reporter asked.
"I cannot answer that question, as I cannot
speak for the whole organization; but this I can
say. the sliding scale is not satisfactory to one
person to my knowledge. On the other hand.
every person is perfectly satisfied with the old
minimum scale. Should the sliding scale go
into effect it would reduce the wages of the
workmen fully 85 per cent."
Another workman spoken to by the reporter,
Baid: "When the works are started, about
three weeks hence, that act will decide the
question whether the scale will be adopted.
At present there is not one member of the as
sociation who wilf sitn, and tberefpre the com
mittees appointed by the members will not,
even were tbey so inclined. The old scale is
good enough for us. It i my opinion that a
strike will take place before tbe scale is
adopted. Tbe Amalgamated Association is
imwerlul, and for that reason I think there is
sot much chance of a strike. There is ho jus
tice in tbe new scale. There might be if steel
blooms remained at a uniform price, of say $25.
and If they should go up to 827 or $28 we would
be the winners. But should tbe price fall to
$23 or $23 SO we lose, and there is more chance
of the price falling than rising."
Several others spoken to said that It was
tbelr opinion the new scale would Dever be
signed by tbe Homestead steel workers. All,
-with one exception, gave it as their opinion
that a strike would be the immediate result
after the starting ol the works if the proprie
tors should try to force the adoption of the
eliding scale. The matter is talked of very
quietly by tbe employes. It is causing no ex
citement whatever, even if the time lor put
ting the works in operation is drawing near.
The only excitement on tbe streets of tbe
town yesterday was occasioned by the street
parade of the converters of No. 2 mill, who
were going to a picnic, and a drum corps of
boys and the singing of the Salvation Army
who paraded the street in the evening.
TO ARRANGE THE LISTS.
Prescription Bottle Blowers to Meet tbe
A conference of tbe prescription glass bottle
blowers and the manufacturers will be held to
day In the office of Wlghtman fc Co. on Wood
street. The object of the meeting of the com
mittee will be to arrange for the prescription
lists for tbe next fire. It will be the same as
the present list, with the exception of a few
additions which have been made. A number
of vials, etc.. Witch have been, introduced
since the last conference, will be put on.
EXCEPTIONS ARE FILED.
Tbe Bruce Bros.' Boycsttera Ask That the
Wnster's Ballnc bo Set Aside.
The defendants in the Brace Bros.' boycott
ease have filed an exception to the ruling of W.
A. Woodward, the master in tbe bearing.
-Tbey claim that the amount of damages that
have been placed for the plaintiffs are entirely
too high, and that tbey have not been guilty
of any violation of the law. The defendants
claim that the mere asking of a person to wlth
. draw bis patronage from tbe boycotted firm
' did not constitute a breach of a law.
An Elclu-Honr Demonstration.
It has been decided to turn to-night's meet-
Tbe Amalgamated Men Wrangling With
Jones fc Lnoghllni' nnd Oliver's.
At the headquarters of the Amalgamated
Association of Iron and Steel Workers yester
day a number of new scales for the ensuing
year were receded signed by different manu
facturers. Secretary Martin officially an
nounced the following: Keystone Boiling Mill
Company, of Pittsburg. Their works are on
Second avenue, beyond Soho; P. L. Klmberly
& Co., of Sharon; Arethusa Iron Works, of
New Castle; Tudor Iron Works; of East St.
Louis; New Albany Forge and Boiling Mill
Company, and Andrews Bros. & Co., of
In the afternoon Jones & Laughlins sent for
the mill committee, and were in consultation
with them all afternoon. The various commit,
tees employed in Oliver Bros. & Phillips' mills
wero also holding a conference with the firm.
President eihe was at the meeting in Jones
fc lAughllns' office, but until 6 o'clock had
not received the firm's signature to a scale.
The conference at Olivers' was very animated,
and the meeting was the second one the com
mittee has already held with the members of
the firm. The first was held Saturday, and tbe
concessions asked then were again requested
yesterday. The men were asked to accept a re
duction of SO cents per ton on billets, but they
wouldn't listen to the proposition. Atthe conven
tion the price for rolling ten-inch plates was re
duced from SO to 72 cents. The firm wanted a
till fnrther reduction, and also wanted to re
duce the price of making small angle. Tbe
men would concede nothing, and tho firm will
probably sign tbe scale by the last of the week.
In that event thev will start their immense
plants on Monday next. In the Tenth street
puddle mill some repairs are needed on the en
gine, and it will "require three days' time to
SOME POLITICAL GOSSIP.
A Democratic Nominee Agnlnst Judge Col
lier on a Full Ticket.
"Will we Democrats put up . a candidate
against Judge CollierT"
"Why?" asked The Dispatch querist.
"For this reason: Suppose on the day after
the next November election we get up In the
morning and have found that we have beaten
Arch Bowand for District Attorney and Heber
McDowell for Coroner, and yet that Collier
had a walk-over, because of our delinquency in
failing to nominate. Do you think for a mo
ment that we would not club ourselves! We
feel it hot in our bones that we are going to
win this time."
"Who are you going to pit against Judge
"Let that go until the time comes. I think
we can find a candidate who can secure the
full vote of the Democratic party and the dis
satisfied vote of the Prohibitionists, and also
those who, formerly Republicans, and wbo de
sire to benefit their cause, wish to effectuate
tbe defeat of those who, while pretending to be
Benublican Prohibitionists, voted against the
r prohibition amendment. You can safely be
lieve that the Democrats will fill their ticket.
The County Democracy will settle that matter
on tbe day after the Fourth."
"Who will the nominee be?"
"It may be Bailey, Watson, or anyone of a
score of others, but we shall, you can depend
upon the matter, go into the convention with
an entire ticket ol candidates."
A SON-PARTISAN PICNIC.
County Democracy Outine. Where Celebri
ties Will Disport Thcniaelrei).
Tbe postponed picnic of tbe County Democ
racy, to be held at Boss' Grove on tbe day after
the Fourth, should be memorable because the
members of tbe organization do not desire to
make the celebration a partisan affair. On the
occasion, as a matter of course, there will be
dancing and promenade music! One of the in
teresting features will be tbe sack race between
Councilman P. M. Carr, J. J. Fox, Matt Mc
Fadden, 'Squire Herman Hendel and Frank

tion, will bo the starter, and Thomas Mullen
Then there will be a 100-yard foot race be

Smith and David Shield.
The mule race will witness Ed Kennedy,

Two picked nines will play .baseball. The
County Democracy do not expect that others
than their friends will be present.
DATING A HIGH TIME.
Alleclicny Onicers Arrest Roysterora Who
Had n Private Spcnk-Enny.
Yesteiday about noon Officers Snyder and
Alexander, of Allegheny, noticed a half-dozen
men on a pier of the Ft. Wayne railroad bridge
regaling themselves with a lot of beer, having
three kegs on tap at one time. They were all
more or less intoxicated and were creating
considerable drunken tumult.
After drinking the beer they rowed to a
shanty boat at tbe foot of Madison avenue
where they continued their noise and tho two
officers concluded to arrest them. The men
saw them coming and tried to get away, two of
them succeeding by jumping in a skiff and
pulling to Pittsburg. The others were caught
and sent to tbe lockup where thev gave- their
names as George Taylor. James Smith, Wm.
Kelly. John Wilson and David Powers.
The two men who got away jeered the
officers and taunted them as they rowed out at
a safe distanee.

Sergeant-at-Arms Kennedy, of the United

he was going to meet Senators Dawes, Mandcr
son. Stockbridge, Morgan, Jones, Pratt and
Wolcutt, and proceed with them to Alaska to
investigate the reports of immorality among
the traders and the Indians of the Territory.
It has been stated that the latter sold tbelr
squaws to the traders for a plug of cocked
hat chewing tobacco and a gallon of very poor
"red eye." The trip is supposed to be a junket
ing tour that will cost thousands of dollars; but
then the Senators will be thoroughly rested for
tbe laborious duties of the next session.

FOETY-THEEE WARRANTS FORHER
James, the Lawyer, Asserts There Are No
Grounds for Charges.
IT MAI END IN A QUIET COMPROMISE
When 'Squire Hartman was called upon
at his office last night and asked for further
information in regard to the Steplin abduc
tion case, the Alderman -was very indig
nant. "Somebody is trying to spoil this case,"
he said, "and I am not going to say any
more about the whole thing, except this. I
have issued 43 warrants for the apprehen
sion of the girl, Dora Steplin, and given
them into the hands of all the police officers
and private detectives of the Southside.
All of these men are following different
clews all over ,the city, and, I believe that
we will get some results by to-morrow. I
have every reason to think, therefore, that
another examination will take place by
Wednesday night Until then everything
has to be left as it is."
"Has any information been made against
this man 'James?' "
"Yes, I have the sworn information here,
and the charge is very serious, but I am not
going to show it to you. Somebody has been
tampering with my docket, and 1 am not going
to let another man see it.
JAMES BEING VTATCHED.
"But you may rest assured of one point; as
soon as we havo ascertained the whereabouts
of Dora Steplin, Mr. 'James' will be arrested.
I have laid my plans in such a manner that
there is no escape for him. I have a special
officer engaged to watch him and his every
footstep, and the officer can arrest bim at any

where a very serious matter Is involved, an
officer can make an arrest without being armed
with the formality of a warrant. Bnt pshawl
He is not the only manl" continued the Alder
man. "I tell you there are several more men
involved in this business besides Mr. 'James,'
but they will all be caught at tbe proper time;
they will not get away, I give you my wora for
that. They are all lawyers, of course."
"The 'Squire also told Tee Dispatch re-
porter.the name of the lawyer, but, until some
official action is taken, that name is, and must
be, withheld. t
A gentleman who made a visit at tbe home
of Mrs Barbara Steplin, and who had a con
versation with that lady, stated last night that
he felt pretty certain the mother knows where
her danghter is, and he also inferred that some
body might yet be induced to compromise the
WHAT THE LAW5TEB SAYS.
The Dispatch reporter also called at the
residence of "James," tbe lawyer, who lives on
the East tide of the Allegheny river, some
miles up. During a conversation with that
gentleman earlier in the day, it is alleged,
he admitted that he had written several letters
to Dora, signed "James." He also admitted that
tbe girl bad lived with him, as a domestic serv
ant at his home, for two weeks. He strongly
repuuiaieu me luea, nowever, mat mere were
any grounds for zerious charges against him,
and last night, at his home, he concluded by
"As far as I know there have not been any
charges made against me as yet, and if any
newspaper publishes my name in connection
With.the case which, I have been told will be
done then I will hold that newspaper re
sponsible." AGENT DEAN LOCATES HER.

Agent Dean, of tbe Society, for the Preven
tion of Cruelty to Children, bas- taken up the
Dora Steplin case Independently of Alderman
Hartman. He has employed a woman as a de
tective to aid bim in the case. Mr. Dean
thinks they have located the girl but will not
give tbe locality definitely. He says be feels
sure she is in a house in one of the suburbs.
Yesterday tbe woman detective approached
the house in question and as she did so saw a
girl answering the description of Dora dlsap-
Eear around the corner of the porch. Mr.
lean thinks tUe girl has received instructions
to keep out of the way when strangers come
near the house. He thinks he will be able to
locate her positively by this evening. -
WHAT WILL THEY DO?
The Life of a Speak-Easy Proprietor Is
Not a Peculiarly Happy One.
Proprietors of "speak-casies" who fear they
may get their names registered in Agent Mc
Call's books, if they pay. the United States
special tax, are between tbe devil and deep
water. Tbey reason this way: If jMcCall and
the United States deputies have missed them
they may make port safely. If caught by
cither the other is liable to put in an appear
ance also, and they will get a box on each ear.
While no steps toward prosecution have
been taken by the Internal Revenue Collector,
people who are supposed to be selling liquor
bave been invited into the captain's office and
nearly a score have done so, and settled tbelr
bill there, among them some proprietors of dis
reputable house 8. The officials do not trouble
themselves with infractions of the State law.
Their books are open for inspection, but they
do not aid in prosecuting violators. As the pen
alty for selling without United States license
is $100 to $5,00 fine and 30 days to 2 years im
prisonment, it doesn't pay to fool with Uncle
Sam unless your illicit business is very profit
able and you don't mind being locked up.
Taking it long and broad most "speak-easy"
proprietors will reason that they may as well
be bung for a sheep as a lamb, for the procur
ing of a license from the United States would
not save them in a State prosecution, and the
getting of it would only tend to expose a flank
to the local enemy.
"SOME REMARKABLE BIDDING.
All Sorts of Bids for Boring; Artesian Wells
in tbe Parks.
At a meeting of the Allegheny Committee on
Parks last evening bids were opened for bor
ing tbe artesian wells that it is proposed to put
down in the parks. They varied considerably,
some of them being for tbe entire four wells
complete, others for just the boring, by tho
foot or by tbe whole, and some were for casing
and pumps only. Tbe bids ran all the way
from 29 cents to $1 60 for the boring alone, and
tbe same discrepancy characterized the bids for
tbe equipment. One bidder proposed to put
down two wells at $1 each, and two at $375
each. Tbe J. M. Gusky Company and Stras
burger and Joseph agreed to bear tbe expense
of putting down two wells, and altogether the
matter appeared to be so jumbled that it was
all left to a sub-committee. Contracts wero
let for the construction of the Department of
Public Comfort and Workshop. The resolu
tion for a site for the Thomas A Armstrong
monument was held over.
Found Her Child.
Mrs. Rhodes, the mother of the 6-year-old
girl whose body was found at Seaver the day
after the Johnstown flood recognized the
picture of the child yesterday at the Ladies'
Belief Committee at tbe new Exposition build
ing. She stated that tbe child's name was
Minnie, and she, with two other children be
longing to her, were drowned.
Allegheny Gambling Ordinance Tabled.
The Police Committee of Allegheny met last
night, took up tbe Mayor's ordinance relating
to disorderly conduct cases, gambling and beg
ging, and laid it on tbe table. This is the sec
ond ordinance of the kind that has been simi
larly disposed of this year. Chief Kirschler

Mr. A B. Biblman, the well-known restaura

home-after being ill for the last three months.
About six weeks

country for nearly 40 years and for over 30
years he has been prominently identified with
the restaurant business of this city. He was
prominently connected with all the best known
German societies, and among his compatriots
he was looked upon as one of their representa;
tive men In Western Pennsylvania. But in his
business he also cme in contact with tho best
business and commercial men of Pittsburg,
Germans as well as hosts of others, and all who
knew him held him in very high regard.
Mr. Bihlman was born in Kroetzlngen.
Baden. Germany, where his father was a shoe
maker. When the boy bad grown up his father
made him an apprentice in his trade, and after
he had become proficient he left his father's
home to travel, in the same manner as most
young German tradesmen do. In other words,
he went "Auf die Walz." During this tour of
traveling, which was all done on foot, he went
to Paris, and there ho obtained employment in
a restaurant, where he learned the catering
In 1848, at the outbreak of the Bevolution. he
returned to Baden, where he entered a volun
teer corps to fight against the Prussians. Th"e
corps was a part of the Baden Bevolutionary
Army, and young Bihlman distinguished him
self to such an extent that be was made cap
tain of a company. v
But his youthful daring in the front against
the enemy brougbthim always into danger,
and be was at last taken prisoner and trans
ported to tbe .Prussian fortress at Bastatt.
However, a man like Bihlman was not afraid,
even behind prison walls, and his courageous
spirit could not be daunted. He at last .es
caped from the place in a vtry miraculous
manner, and fled. He luckily got out of the
country, and, succeeding in gaining a seaport,
immediately embarked for America.
He came at once to Pittsburg and, after
awhile, obtained a position as engineer on the
Pittsburg, Cincinnati and St. Louis Railroad.
But railroading did not suit him. long, and he
returned to the city to open a restaurant. His
first venture was on Penn avenue, near
Twelfth street. From here he went to open
the "Volkshalle."' on Eleventh, an old hostelry,
;hlch used to be known as Freeman's Hall.
After that he moved to the Atlantic Garden on
He had not been in Pittsburg very long when
he was married to a young lady who came from
his native town in Baden. Mr. Bihlman leaves
several grown-up children. Two of his sons
have for some time been at the helm of his fine
business on Diamond street.
He was one of the oldest members of the

A special meeting of L. A. 6111, Knights of

day in Labor Hall. The object was to instrnct
the delegates who are going to the convention
of District Assembly 143, to be held at Atlantic

The Governor Says Great Changes Have
Been Made at Johnstown.
HE TALES OF DAMAGE BY THE JUNIATA
Governor Beaver, of this great Commonwealth,-
was in this city for about one hour
and 20 minutes last night on his way to
Clarion from Johnstown. He departed on
the Buffalo express for Foxburg, and from
there will go to Harrisbarg. He will be
in Philadelphia on Thursday 'to orate at a
Fourth of July demonstration.
Tbe Governor spent the day at Johns
town and took a view of the work to ascer
tain how it was progressing. In speaking
last evening of what he saw he said:
"The work of cleaning up the debris has
.progressed more rapidly than I ever antici
pated it would. While going the rounds
this morning I heard the people finding fault
aud criticising tbe work of the laborers. This
I consider to be a very good sign that tbey have,
pulled themselves out of the hope that the
State was going to do everything and they are
now relying upon themselves. When people
get pettish they are in a condition to help
themselves and do not want to be placed under
compliments to anybody. The houses the peo
ple are now getting are larger than those sent
them at first. They are four feet longer and
two' wider than
THE SO-CALLED DOO HOUSES.
"The latter were only for temporary occu
pancy, and even if they were small the people
should not have objected to living in them.
They are better than a tent to live in, espec
ially for children.
"The State officers will remain in charge of
the work until it has been proved that the
residents of the town can take hold and
manage for themsolves. The State Board of
Health will stay there, long after the other
officers have been taken away and they will
continue to ward off any contagicn. General
Hastings will probably be enabled to leave in
about two weeks, but, if he thinks his services
are needed there he will stay all summer.
"Judge Cummins, one of the Commissioners,
will be the resident officer at the place. He
will move his family to Cressun, and will be at
Johnstown every day. He has sent out blanks
asking for information and after they bave
beeu filled we will pay out the relief funds.
In tbe blanks each signer is asked to give the
number of members In his or her family, how
much real estate they owned and the valuation
of it, bow much household goods the family
bad on hand and what it was worth, tbe occu
pation of the head of tbe family and the wages
received, etc., etc His estimate of the losses
will be referred to the commission, and this
will form a basis for the distribution of relief
funds. Hearings will be granted people to
make better claims. There will be no star
chamber sessions; everything will be public
THE JUNIATA FLOOD.
"The people of this city need to be enlight
ened upon what damage was done outside of
Johnstown by tbe floods. The condition of the
people in the Juniata and Susquebanna Val
leys was deplorable. The devastation along
the bottom farming lands was greater than any.
one in this section of the State has any idea
of. All tbe crops wero ruined but the most
damage done was the farms were "scoured."
The heavy logs and trees being washed along
the ground just scooped the loam off, leaving
the bare clay. From Tyrone to tbe mouth of
the Juniata river and to Harrisburg there was
terrible destruction. At Lewistown houses
were swept away and everything on
the farms lost., On the north branch
of the Susquehanna there was bo seri
ous destruction and no lives lost. On the
other branch, from Benovo to Harrisburg, the
towns of Lock Haven, Williamsport, -Jersey
Shore, Northumberland; Sunbury and Milton
were greatly damaged and lives were losr.'.'
Adjutant General H. A. Axline, of Ohio, and
J. B.Foraker.Jr.. ton of. the Governor, were
'fellow passengers with the Governor. The
former said he was greatly surprised at the im
provement that has been made within ten days.
MR. FRANK RETIRES.
The Building Inspector Flies His Resigna

Building Inspector Frank yesterday filed bis

be says that circumstances which bave arisen
during the past two months impelled him to
resign. He bad tried to do his duty, but fre
quent publications from an unwarranted
source bad caused so much trouble as to result
in the dismissal of his colleague (Mr. Eichboy),
and under the circumstances It would be ira-
Sossible to remain himself. The new Assistant

bas been put in charge of the office until J. O.
Brown, Chief of the Department of Public

Their Case Mast Come In the Way of Re
hearlngs, tbe Same as Wholesalers A
Char With Mr.Sweltzer.
Some surprise was manifested in legal-circles
last night 'at the ruling of Judge Stowe in the
matter of, the reversed decisions of Judge
White. Judge- Stowe directed the bottlers to
re-present their cases on Wednesday upon the
same basis as the wholesalers in appealed cases,
whereas there had been a supposition that,
under the ruling of the State Supreme Court,
all that the bottlers had to do was to present
themselves and their money and receive their
licenses. But tbe bottlers who were refused
license are unmistakably upon the same legal
plane as the wholesalers, both branches of the
trade coming under the terms of the lengthy
decision filed in tbe Pollard case. The opinion
written by Judge Paxson devotes only a few
lines to the Harris et ai. bottlers' cases, saying
simply that tbe cases on appeal are reversed
upon the general grounds in the elaborate
opinion banded down in tbe Pollard case.
J. Bowman Sweitzer, of tbe Supreme Court
Prothonotary's office, stated last bight that
there is no mittimus or mandamus having a
bearing on the case outside .of the formal
opinion of the Court, which arrived yesterday
morning, and was made the basis of Judge
It seems, therefore, that there is no royal
road to fortune for the bottlers, who must take
the regular course of procedure in the matter
of rehearings before the Court of Quarter Sessions.

Ordination of an Assistant Pastor for the
Fourth Avenue Baptist Church A Very
Interesting Service Last NIxbt.
Last night, .for tbe first time in 30 years, the
Fourth Avenue Baptist Church found itself
called upon to ordain a minister hi connection
with its pastoral work. The person ordained
was William Ward West, of the class of
of Rochester Theological Seminary, as assist
ant pastor. A council of churches of the
Pittsburg Baptist Association was held to con
sider the propriety of setting him apart to the
work of tbe gospel ministry. The council met
at 3 p. H. and elected Bev. A J. Bonsall, of
Rochester, Moderator, and. Prof. J. F. Carey'
Mr. West passed a creditable examination,
and at 7:30 o'clock the ordination services took
place in the church. Bev. D. E. Bichards, of
Sharpsburg, read the scripture lesson, andProf.
Leroy Stephens. President of Mt Pleasant
Institute, led in prayer. Bev. D. B. Davis,
pastor of the Second Baptist Church, preached
the ordination sermon, from Epbesians 1L, 12-13,
Bev. J. W. Riddle delivered the charge to
the church, and Bev. A. J. Bonsall the charge
to the candidate. The candidate then knelt
by the side of the pulpit in the spacious
chancel, and was surrounded by all tbe or
dained ministers present, led by the pastor,
Bev. H. B. Grose, who placed their right hands
on his head, while Bev. J. K. Cramer, of the
Thirty-seventh Street Baptist Church, offered
up a fervent prayer of ordination. The hand
of fellowship, on behalf of the council, associa
tion and church, was then extended by Bev. J.
M. Scott, of Sewlckley.
The newly-made minister of the gospel, Bev.
William W ard West, pronounced the benedic
tion, after which he received the congratula
tions of many warm friends. Mr. West will
