lead Dr. Page to Believe That Seacard
Goes Only Half Way.
CHAT OS A SUBJECT WORLD WIDE
Dr. Brown-Sequard, or Paris, noted on
two continents on account of the claims he
makes for his new "Elixir of Life," has
a disciple in Pittsburg, who has tried his
treatment of injecting animal tissues into
weak and debilitated people, with the great
est success. This disciple is Dr. Henry A.
Page, an old, reputable physician of the
East End. He said last night that he had
tried Dr. Sequard's treatment on three pa
tients, and that he had fairly created new
men. He says that the half has not yet
been told of this great "Elixir." He adds
that the published experiments of Sequard
are confined to those who were in their dot
age or suffering from decay, while the
FIELD FOB THE DISCOVERY,
he thinks, can be enlarged so as to embrace
different diseases, by injecting the animal
tissues of the corresponding organs of vari
ous animals into the diseased human organs.
He says it can be made to give a man a new
grip on life, and that the great field for the
remedy is among people, and especially
men, who have lived high before they set
tled down in life, spent their
nights at the clubs, robbed themselves
of sleep, attended to sports, society
or other fashionable dissipations, and so
early dwarfed themselves in their physical
growth and visor, and sapped the life-giving
and renewing elements of their constitu
tions, leaving them really to commence life
all broken down in health, because they did
not husband their energies. Hen have thus
deprived themselves of enough vital energy
to last them their lifetime; they have drawn
too heavily and too soon from the reserve

The doctor explained that "the material
used is selected from young and vigorous
animals, preferably the pic and the aheep.
There is but little distinctive difference as
to the animal selected, so far as results go.
Certain glands are taken, reduced to a pulp
by a process of beating, and the juices being
expressed, they are carefully filtered. When
used a certain amount of pure water is
added, the whole agitated until thoroughly
mixed, then introduced through the medium
of a small syringe under the skin."
He said the process was not painful, but
that it was necessary to exercise the greatest
care that the vitalized medium be fresh and

ARIdeDown the Ohio River and a Visit to
Qoalnf Old Economy.
The steamer vl vtfiower never carried a
more select and cultured party of excur
sionists than it did yesterday, when the
members of the Columbus Club, the repre
sentative Catholic association of the city,
with their ladies boarded the boat and took
a trip down the Ohio river. The old boat,
which has witnessed hundreds of social
gatherings, seemed to be a thing of life as it
bore the p-irtv out into the stream and
seemed to fairly fly through the water.
The first stop was made at Rochester,
where the party spent about one hour in
specting the town. A number of the
young men engaged in a game of baseball,
in which numerous fingers were disjointed,
etc The party then repaired to the boat,
which was headed for Economy. Upon ar
rival at the latter place the quaint and staid
old villagers took the party in charge, and
there was nothing lacking in their hospi
tality. After spending two hours with the
Economites, the party returned to the city
at 10:20 in the evening. Rev. Father He
Donald, D. D.,of St. Paul's Cathedral, rep
resented the clargy on the outing.

YOUKG SEWICKLEY SOCIETY.
The Member of tbo Athletic Association
Have n Grcnt Tournament An Exhibi
tion With n Novel Tennis Game.
It was a tired crowd of young people who
left the Sewickley Athletic grounds last
night after about six hours of exciting recre
ation in the several athletic contests of the
lawn fete and tournament of the Sewickley
Association of Gymnasts. But in spite of
the fatigue, which was apparent on the face
of nearly everybody, it had been a delight
ful time forall, and the gigantic trees which
threw their deep, gaunt shadows over the
assembly, had rarely harbored a happier
lot of athletes under their branches.
The entertainment had been planned to
raise some funds for a club house they in
tend to build. Nearly all of the younger
ladies and gentlemen of fashionable Se
wickley belong to the organization, and, as
usual, their efforts were crowned with suc
cess. They cleared about (300, but gave an
entertainment to 500 guests, which proved a
pleasure to every visitor.
An extensive programme, whose details
were made up of exhibitions from nearly all
the popular outdoor games, was presented.
Four teams of entries were made in the
quoit contest, which opened the tournament
at 4 o'clock. It resulted in a victory for
the second team, composed of Can tain G."W.
Cochran and A. B. Storm. Joseph Mc
Donald -proved to be the best out of six-ball
throwers, firing his ball 108 yards. Arthur
Kevin secured the prize in the sack race
from eight contestants. Edward McMillan,
who made the highest jump of 5 feet 1 inch,
was the victor over seven jumpers. A 100
yard race was won byHr. D. B, Warden,
who made the distance in lOJi' seconds, ac
cording to two watches.
The three-legged race, a contest which
afforded a great deal of amusement, was
won by Bobert Miller and Joseph W. Ar
rott. Mr. John Semple proved to be the
highest kicker, and secured a miniatnre
moon as a prize for his effort to reach that
planet with his toes. Eight young men at
tempted to climb the greasy pole, but it was
too greasy and nobody got to the top.
The most interesting part of the pro
gramme, and an exhibition "which has never
before been performed in this part of the
country, was a burleoque game of tennis!
The two sets were composed of tour gentle
men arrayed in the most grotesque of ladies'
dresses. Their capers and antics created a
great deal of laughter. Messrs. George C.
Whitesell and Charles L. Doyle were the

James B. Scott states that money con

this end Secretary Kremer will take the

asked if anything had been done about the

anything done yet and I do not see, as I
have stated before, what can be done. The
cases will not come up for trial until next
spring, if the peome up then."
When asked if he did not think the suits
had been entered hope of ina voluntary

promise of any kind in the matter. The
large number of dams which have been

FLEMON GOES SOUTH,

Lively Scenes From Jail to Central and
Thence to the Train.
TBUSTIXG HIS FATE TO HIS LAWIEES
Without any of the predicted disturbance
without even an ordinary up'oar
Flemon, or Yeldell, was last night conveyed
from the Central station to the Baltimore
and Ohio depot and there safely shipped on
board a south-bound train. The day selected
was a good one, as the great bulk of the
colored people had been celebrating the an
niversary of West Indian slave emancipa
tion, and very few had returned to town
in time to witness the departure of
their six weeks' hero. Seidell snent
the day in the Central police station,
reading the Bible, and nerving himself for
the great strain which is before him; having
been previously and quietly transferred from
the jail. He was thoroughly reconciled to
his departure, and expressed a hope that his
colored brethren would create no useless
disturbance by riotous conduct or at
tempted rescue, which, as he himself said,
would only prejudice the public against
THE CBOWD CAME OUT.
A crowd began to grow about 8 o'clock
around the doors of the Central station, and
by 80 the sidewalks were blocked np, and
dense gronps were massed along Smithfield
street in the direction of the Baltimore and
Within the station a consultation was
going on as to the beat means to elude the
crowd; and a plan was speedily formulated.
Officers were dispatched to circulate the rumor
that the prisoner was to leave by the Union
depot, and they did their work so well that
the greater part of the crowd at once set off
in that direction. A chat was obtained
with Yeldell, and he seemed in rather good
spirits, though evidently a bit nervous.
As the station clock struck 9 word was
passed for Officer Patrick Fitzgerald, and
after the lapse of some minutes that indi
vidual turned up. He was at once hand
cuffed to Yeldell, and, the wagon being by
this time in attendance, the pair were
'hustled into the outer office and thence to
the street. A drnnken woman beinc Lroncrht
in jostled Yeldell as he passed, and the po-
lite minister tooit u uis uat wiui ai? irec
hand and begged her pardon. In a few
seconds more the prisoner and Officer Fitz
gerald were safely seated in the wagon,
which set off up Smithfield street at a quick
trot. Knowing ones made tracks for the
B. & O. depot, but the bulk of the crowd
followed tbe wagon.
Subsequent events proved .their mistake,
for the wagon dashed down to Sixth avenue
and wheeled suddenly up Wood street, in
the direction of the river. A howl of anger
went up from the crowd, and instantly every
face was turned riverward and every nerve
strained to reach the Baltimore and Ohio
depot, but all too late. .
EIOT WAS EVADED.
Had the mob in the streets reached the
depot in time and mixed with the crowd
already there, a riot must of necessity have
ensued. As it was, everything went off
most quietly, and the rare tact of the police
was conspicuously displayed.
A few minutes previous to the arrival at
tbe depot, by a preconcerted measure the
electric lights on the platform of the depot
were extinguished, and but for those shining
in the waiting rooms the place would have
been in utter darkness. As soon as it be
came known that the wagon had arrived, a
rush was made for the barrier, so as to get a
look at the now notorious Yeldell, but the
depot officials, aided by tbe officers, quietly
cleared a lane, and the prisoner,
still linked to Paddy Fitzgerald,
and followed by the officers and
newspaper men, was ushered through the
gate and escorted to a seat in the foremost
car of the six. As Yeldell settled down,
guarded on one side by Fitzgerald and on
tbe other by uoo JJennlson (ootn or whom

ceeding. tiiey didn't ktow not.
But very few of the passengers seemed to
know of the celebrity whom they were to
have as a traveling companion. Arrived at
tbe foremost car, which contained but few
Eassengers, Yeldell was led to a seat and
andcuffed to its arm by Boger O'Mara,
who then affixed tbe shackles to his feet.
The deputies seated themselves in the seat
behind and had a levee of about five min
utes' duration, during which handshakes
were exchanged with the acquaintances
among the officers and newspaper men, and
hones tendered them of as pleasant a Jour
ney as could be wished for under the cir- J
cumstances. xeiaeu at tnis point
bade good-by to an intelligent
colored man who came there
to see him off, telling him not to forget to
write to a certain address. His friend as
sured him of his compliance with his wish,
and raising his hand aloft, cried out:
"May the God of Isaac and Abraham see
you safely home, and send vou better luck
in Carolina than you had in Pennsylvania."
Yeldell bore himself throughout with a
coolness almost bordering on indifference,
and smiled in response to some remarks that
were made anent his journey. A few mo
ments more and the conductor came along.
"All aboard!" rang out from the brakemen,
and at 920, sharp on time, tbe Southern ex
press pulled out for South Carolina. So fell
the curtain on tbe first scene of this now
famous extradition case.
Yeldell, before going, said he had nearly
as many friends in South Carolina as he
had in Pittsburg. He spoke gratefully of
the efforts made by Pittsburg colored men
to secure his acquittal. -Questioned about
the killing of Blackwell, he refused to give
anr information. All the false 'reports
which had appeared iu print about that
affair would, he said, be contradicted at the
Geeat reductions in ladies' suits and tea
gowns. A few gingham, satine and white

The beginning of the cokers' strike in the
Connellsrille region materialized yesterday,
as per programme, and at 4 o'clock In the
afternoon abont 2,500 men were out. Over
2,000 of these were Frick men, who, it is
claimed, had signed a scale with their em
ployer, to run until January 31, 1890.
The strike was not as extensive as some of
the labor leaders expected. The mass meet
ing at Connellsville, however, drew an en
thusiastic crowd. This had the effect of
getting quite a number of men to lay down
their tools. At several works committees of
strikers tried to get men to join them; but,
in the majority of cases, were unsuccessful.
The operators were jubilant last evening,
seeing the majority of their men refused to
go out. They claimed the strike was a fiz

than one-fifth of those in the region.

will throw Idle about the same number of
ovens. The 200 men at the Buckeye Works,
owned by the Connellsville Company, also went
out. The same number were employed at the
Central Connellsville W orks, which is jointly
owned by Messrs. Frick, Schoonmaker and
McClure. They were among tho first to go ont.
The following, works were reported to be
running full time:
Tbe Standard, owned by Frick A Co., 1,000
men; tbe works of McClure A Co., 1,500 men,
and Schoonmaker. 1,500; the Mammoth, owned
br J. W. Moore, 550 men; United, owned by tbo
United Coal and Coke Company. 325 men;
Hecla, at Hecla station, 300 men; Mutual, 200
men; Calumet, 200 men. All of the mines on
tbe Sewickley branch road are also reported to
be running without a break.
At a number of the works where the men
were on strike it was reported that the su
perintendents tried to secure a number of
Hungarians to take the placesof the strikers,
but that they refused.
ME, FB.ICK IS ASTOUNDED.
H. C. Frick, when seen by a Dispatch
reporter yesterday, said: "I am utterly
surprised that our men should co on a strike
in the face of the agreement we made with
them. The contract binds them to work at
the price agreed to 85 cents until the
scale expires. This is tbe first time I ever
knew an agreement of this kind to be vio
lated by any class of workingmen. So tar
the strike has not been a success, and I do
not anticipate that any more men will go
"Will the number of men out have any
effect on the market? Will there be enough
men working to supply the demand lor
coke?" Mr. Frick was asked.
"There certainly will be enough to easily
meet the demand for the product. The
number of meu out represents a little more
than one-sixth of those in the region. At
present there is a large snrplus stock of
coke on the market, and even if we did not
have enoueh men to make enough to fill
orders, this stock would last us quite a
FROM THE SEAT OF "WAB.
The following special telegram from Scott
dale last evening brought additional details
of the strike:
The strike in this region Is now an assured
fact, and while not as many of the works are
idle as was expected, there are enongh to
make the men reasonably certain of success
in the end. Tbe following works are reported

Reports have been received to tbe effect that
Donnelly.Mayfield and Enterprise works, of tbe
McClure Coke Company.vwould be idle to-morrow
or Saturday. It is also claimed that tbe
men at tbe Jtmtown works of tbe Schoon
maker Coke Company will come out to-mor.
One of the most peculiar features of the
strike is that while all the employes of the
Frick Company, except those at the Standard
works, came cut without paying any attention
to the provision of tbe Frick scale, a Standard
man said to-day that at a meeting of tbe men
at that place last night it was decided to give
the company tbe notice required. A promi
nent striker said that the reason for this was
that nearly all the men at Standard wero mem
bers of the National Progressive Union, and
that they had been advised by President Davis
to give the notice.
MOEE OF THEM OUT.
The following was recaived at 1 o'clock
this morning from Connellsville:
The strike returns received at a late hour
to-night show that of the 77 coke plants in tbe
region 20 are Idle by the strike. They are as

or a little over one-fourth of the total number of
ovens In the region.
The men at Bessemer, Cora, Donnelly, May
field. Mt.Braddock, Pennsvllle and Southwest
No. 1 are expected to come out in tho morning.
If the last named works are Included In the
idle ovens tbe number of ovens will be in
creased to 4,672. The men at alarge number of
the works, notably those of McClure Sc Co., are
hesitating whether to. come out or not.
A big meeting was held at New Haven this
afternoon. It was addressed by Secretary
Watcborn, John Costello atui others. Julius
Sydow addressed tbe Slavonic element.
To-night tho samo speakers addressed
a large meeting at Trotters, At
a meeting of the National Progres
sive Union held at these works on Tuesday
erenlnz, tbe action of tbe Knights of Labor in
declaring the strike was vigorously con
demned, and they unanimously declined to
continue work. The meeting to-night has bad
a reactionary effect; and it is probable that
they will Join the force of strikers in tbo morn
ing. Meetings were also held at Southwest
No. 1, Mayfleld and Donnelly to-night. These
works are in tbe douole-fnll column, and it Is
expected they too will come out in tho morn
ing. The labor organizations are divided on
tho point at issue. Tbe opposition the Na
tional Progressive Union has developed against
the efforts of the Knights, not only preclude
tho possibility of the strike becoming general,
but will doubtless bring it to an early termi
nation. PRESIDENT BODINE'S BEPOBT.
He Says tbe Outlook far tbe Future Is Not
The annual report of President Bodine, of
the Window Glass Workers' National Asso
ciation, was received in this city yesterday.
In his treatise on the future, President
Bodine says the outlook is not at all encour
aging, owing to the large increase of stock
by reason of the new tank and pot furnaces.
The total nnmber of pots in operation was
1,660, an increase of 108 pots over last year.
He estimates the product for 1889 at 3,218,
880 boxes, 823,644 of which will be made
in this city. This is an Increase of 00,000
boxes over last year Referring to the tank
system, which is now troubling the manu
facturers in this vioinity. President Bodine
Tanks will be constructed at Brlrtgeton, N.
J., and Streator, 111. Importers in New York
cannot place more than ISner cent ol first and
second quality; hence they are being largely I
shut out of the American market by the retro-J
r - '-Bv. -jpr ' iinc:
grade of quality In foreign? glass. D.H. Rob
erts has established a profitable business In
American natural gas made glass In New York,
and has driven out considerable French glass.
As 18 Is to 75 Is the proportion of tank made
glass. The pot furnaces furnish 75 per cent of
first and second qnality, and tho tank furnaces
did not furnish IS per cent of first quality.
While the tanks may make production, they
cannot make as good quality as pot furnaces.
TO SETTLE STKIKES.
Captain Jones Wants a Board of Arbitration
Bow They Are to Work English Capi
tal Is Not Needed Here.
Captain William R. Jones, General Man
ager of the Edgar Thomson Steel Works,
left last evening for Milwaukee, Wis., to
purchase several engines for use at the
Braddock mills. While at the Union sta
tion waiting for the limited express, tbe
Captain dropped out of his usual taciturn
mood and unburdened his mind of a num
ber of questions that are agitating the in
dustrial world at present. In speaking of
the strikes and lockouts among the iron
workers, he suggested a plan which he
claimed wonld prevent any further strug
gles of this kind between capital and labor.
The Captain said:
My idea of preventing strikes, which always
prove disastrous to both tbe employer and em-
Sloyes, is to have a board of arbitration in this
tate. something similar to tbe one now la ex
istence in New York State. I would like to
see tbe board composed of five men, composed
of such as form the judiciary of the State.
Whenever a crowd of employes become dissat
isfied with their wages or treatment and can
not settle the matter satisfactorily with their
employers, they must refer it to the
board. The latter will be clothed
with the authority to inspect the books of
the employer, and if it is a question of wages,
let them decide what is fair and equitable. In
a large manufacturing establishment this conld
be dono very easily. Say for instance that tho
employer be allowed 10 per cent profit on what
be turns ont or has invested In his plant. They
would also take Into consideration what skill
is required to do a certain class of work and
base the wages accordingly. In some mills
there are men receiving as high as $7,000 and
$8,000 per year. They are supposed to do man
ual labor, but by the introduction of new ma
chinery their labor is cut down almost to
nothing. If the board of arbitration was in ex
istence these men wonid be cht down to abont
5.000 per year, and tbe difference given to the
poor laboring bands who now receive less than
tl 50 per day.
Laws shonld be passed making it compulsory
to refer all these labor questions to tbe board
and their decision must settle the matter. Any
violation or non-acceptance of their decision
npon the part of both employer and employe
would be made a penal offense. If an employe
Is not satisfied with the way the case Is settled,
then he has no alternative bat to quit and go
elsewhere. 1 think this would be far better
than to organize a striko by which both sides
lose time and money they never regain. The
scbome works all right in New York State and
there is no reason why It should not work here.
Sneaking of the general outlook for rail
road building, based on orders the company
has received for rails, the Captain called the
prospects very bright. The many recent
failures of mercantile interests, he said,
caused a very shaky condition of affairs,
and ii so many failures had occurred within
the same time 16 years ago they would have
caused a panic.
Captain Jones is much opposed to invest
ments of English capital in American
manufactures. He says there is plenty of
American capital here "to take care of every
thing, and every scheme the English started
in this country, for some reason, fell

TWO STORIES AB0DT MR. QUAI'S TISIT
Senator Quay went back to Bearer county
at 4:30 P. 21. yesterday, after spending the
day in the city, calling on friends among
the business people and receiving the visits
of politicians and others in room 123 at the
Seventh Avenue Hotel.
There was a great deal of activity appar
ent among the political forces on either side
and men went about in a manner that indi
cated there was. something afoot, though
nearly everyone, when questioned, felt free
to admit that he didn't know just what
might or might not be. Mr. Flinn was seen
during the afternoon, and knew so little that
it was positively painful.
"Have yon called on Quay?" inquired
"No. sir," he replied.
"Have yon been negotiating with him for
harmony, or for a settlement of the post
office?" Mr. Flinn said he hadn't been.
Later Mr. Quay was seen, and admitted
that he had met Mr. Flinn, casually.
"Did he call on you?"
"No," said the Senator, "he didn't."
"May I inquire where you saw him?"
"I don't care to talk politics to-day," re
turned Mr. Quay, with a pleasant smile.
The reportorial intrusion on Mr. Q uay
was a surprise to that gentleman. The clerks
in the office stated in their official capacities
that the statesman from Beaver wasn't in.
Bat he was, nevertheless, and James S. Mc
Kean was just coming out of the door, smil
ing as though something pleasant had been
said, as The Dispatch reporter entered.
United States District Attorney Lyon and
Chief Clerk, Morrison, of the House of Eep
resentatives, were in the room, and the con
sultation seemed to be an earnest one.
KO BACK TBACES TO BE TAKEN.
'Mr. Quay's prospective candidacy for 1892
could not be brought to light. Neither
could any other political information of any
value. Mr. Quay said, however, that he
was enjoying good health aad expected to
for some time to come.
After the visit to Mr. Quay Mr. Flinn
was again seen and asked further concern
ing a confer ence between himself and Sen
"I am in no deal whatever," said Mr.
Flinn, and then, as the reporter began to
ask another question, he stated with good
natured emphasis: "You can say I am in
no deal whatever."
Turning to a friend, Mr. Flinn remarked:
"I've still got my eye on that seat in Har
risburg." John Neeb soon disposed of all rumors
that he was to be removed from the Sena
torial race in Butan's district. He stated
emphatically that he was a candidate for
tbe Senate, and intended to continue to be a
candidate. "Neither bosses nor anyone
else," he said, "can pull me off the track.
No matter what deals may be made, they
will not include me, in that respect. This
is my fight,and I am in it for all it is worth.
Flinn is with me as long as I stay. He has
told me so, and Quay knows his position."
Chief J. O. Brown" is reported to have had
a long talk with Quay yesterday afternoon;
but, apparently, everything is oS in the
way of compromise for the present. The
general run of gossip is that Quay's first
attempt was to get John JNeeo ont or tne
way, and that failing, no attempt was made
to follow out the rest of the rather indefinite
TWO STORIES ABOUT IT.
A gentleman close to Mr. Quay, who
didn't want to be quoted, said Mr. Quay
came to Pittsburg for the one purpose of
harmonizing the differences existing in
Butan's district. A large number of per
sons wanted to see him on the subject, and
it was easier for one man to come to Pitts
burg than for 20 men to go to Beaver. An
other gentleman, equally close to Quay, is
authority for the statement that the Sena
tor's visit was really to endeavor to bring
about a harmonious feeling with Mr. Flinn,
and that tbe Senatorial difference was a
very useful cloak for his actual intentions.

city again to-morrow evening. Chairman,
Andrews will join him at the Seventh Ave
nue Hotel and together they will proceed to
No candidate has yet been definitely
placed in the field to contest for the Sen
atorship against Mr. Flinn. Harry Paul,
President of the Americns Club, is spoken
of among the Quay men as most likely to
be the man. Tne only new piece of legis
lative gossin is the candidacy of James S.
Henry in the Seventh legislative district.
He is at present Secretary of the Legislative
Committee on Charities and Corrections,
and if fie finally determines to listen to the
persuasive voice of friends, will have some
verv strong backing.
Unless some satisfactory conclusion can
oe arrived at with Mr. Flinn, the Quay
people will probably make a fight for tho
city government in the" spring.
HEADF0EE1I0ST WIIH A HOD.
Terrlflc and Fatnl Fall of Charles Raffan OS
Charles Bagan, aged 27 years, who live
at No. 43 Federal street, and was employed
by B. Meyers, the Fast End, contractor, as
