THE 'PITTSBtJRG- v DISPATCH. SdNDAT, AUGUST, .4. 1889.
The Republican County Committee
Fixes the Dates Therefor.
THEY WILL LE HELD SEPAEATELT.
Judje Petterman Objected to the, Plan,
But Was Overcome.
S01IB IlirOETANT SUB-COMMITTEES
The County Republican Executive Com
mittee held itslargest meeting thisseason yes
terday afternoon with Vice President John
2. Neeb in the chair. The purpose -was to fix
the number of conventions tor June, 1890,
and to desijnate the officers to be nominated.
Twenty minutes were consumed in calling
the roll, 200 being present. Judge Tetter
man wanted the roll dispensed with, but
Alderman Schaefer objected, and it was
Sheriff McCandless offered the following
Whekeas, In accordance with Kale Ho. 6,
of the rules EOvemlnB the Republican Execu
tive Committee of Allecheny county, it is pro
vided that "at least four months previous to
the primary elections and conventions,! the
County Committee shall determine the number
of couuty conventions to be held and officers'
to be nominated therein;" theretore be it
Kesolved, That primary elections be held on
the first Saturday In June, 1S90, between the
hours of 4 and 7 o'clock r. X., in the several
election districts throughout the county, to
elect delcpates to the lollowine conventions:
County convention No. 1, county convention
No. 2, county convention No. 3, county con
vention No. 4.
Also to elect delecates to the several Con
cressional. Senatorial and Assembly districts
as provided by rule No. 5. County convention
No. I. to nominate a candidate for Sheriff and
a candidate for Controller; county convention
No. 2, to nominate a candidate for Treasurer, a
candidate for Clerk of Courts and a candidate
for Director of the Toor. Convention No. 3 to
nominate a candidate for Recorder and a can
didate for Register of Wills. Convention No.
4. to nominate two candidates for Commis
sioners and a candidate for Assistant District
Attorney. I OB SEPARATE CONVENTIONS.
Judge Fetterman offered an amendment
to the resolution creating a separate con
vention for each of the general county officers
to be nominated. This would make eight
conventions instead ot four.
Mr. Flinn objected to the amendment on
the ground that it would create an army of
delegates, and as there was no opposition
to the candidates for the several county
offices, he could not see the practicability in
having so many conventions.
Judge Fetterman thought it would create
too much confusion to have two officers
nominated in one convention, and referred
to the time when all the countv officers were
nominated in one convention, and it nearly
alwavs took two or three days to make up
Dr. McClarren moved, as an amendment
to the amendment, that the Crawlord county
system be adopted; but Chairman Neeb
ruled his motion out of order, for the reason
that the rules provide a system by which all
county officers shall be nominated.
Judge Fetterman's amendment was then
voted on. and was lost by a larae majority,
alter which the resolution offered by Sheriff
McCand,less was adopted, with but one dis
senting voice that ot Judge Fetterman.
Secretary Martin then announced the sub
committees which had been appointed since
the last meeting. They embrace a list of 400

J. M. Schaefer suggested that a. Commit

be appointed. Chairman Neeb said that
was unnecessary, as there were never any

was wrong, for the leaders were at war all
the time. Chairman Neeb replied that the
County Committee had nothing to do with
the private affairs of the leaders.
Mr. Schaefer then mcved that the regnlar
meeting of the committee be held on the sec
ond Saturday in each month. This carried,
and the committee will meet next Saturday

UKCLE BEN'S DEATH.
The Oldest Pltubnr Printer Passes Awny
A Man Whs Wm One or the Argonauts of
'49 A Lire of Incident.
"Uncle Ben" Franklin Latshaw died of a
complication of diseases at his home, 31 Ful
ton street, yesterday morning. He was the
oldest printer in Pittsburg, having been born
in Stoystown, Somerset county, February 15,
1621. As early as 1833 he began his appren
ticeship at the case with his elder brother,
W. D. Latshaw, publisher of a
paper in Johnstown. He remained
in that position for two years,
when he came to Pittsburg and was appren
ticed on a paper published by Robert M.
Riddle. At the conclusion of his appren
ticeship he went to Missouri, and engaged
with the Springfield Register. From there,
in the Tear 1840, he again associated him
self with his brother, who was conducting a
paper at Mt Carmel on the Wabash river,
after which he came to Pittsburg, and went
the rounds of all the city newspapers. Then
he went to Philadelphia, but again returned
the Iron City in 1845.
Again in 1849 he went to St Joseph,
Missouri, by river, and crossed overland to
California. When he landed at Sacra
mento he determined to go out to the gold
diggings. He had not remained but a few
weeks in the mines when he returned to the
case, having secured employment at Sacra
mento, where he received $2 per thousand
ems. This may seem an overestimate; but
it must be taken into consideration that all
the necessities of life were exorbitantly
Cholera broke out very shortly after he
had started to set type; and he thought it
best to come east, and arrived once more in
Pittsburtr in 1851. From that period he has
at intervals been foreman of the Commercial
Gazette and "held cases" on the Post.
Uncle Ben's iuneral will take place at 4
r. M. to-day, and the burial will be at Home
wood Cemetery on Monday at 10 A. M.
LOTTERY TEOPLE GEKEROUS.
Attorney Porte Geu nn Intimation SInch
of the Money Blown In by Fiona Slay
Be Restored to the Bank.
James H. Porte, Esq., the attorney for
Harry Flann, late bookkeeper of the Ma
rine National Bank, has returned from his
Southern trip. Mr. Porte's trip was taken
in the-interest of young Flann. He is try
ing to get the directors of the Louisiana
Lottery to reimburse the bank for the money
Flann stole from it Mr. Porte stopped at
Westchester, N. Y., and saw Mr. Morris,
legal adviser of the lottery company, and
got letters of introduction that were hclplul
to him. When he got South, Mr. Dauphin,
of the lottery, was ill at home, but Mr. Porte
saw Mr. Mclntyre, his private Becretary.and
received very encouraging information.
Mr. Mclntyre said there was no legal
ground on which to get restitution; but the
company had frequently returned money
under similar conditions. "It is not," said
Mr. Mclntyre, "the policy of the lottery
company to receive money, if we are a
sured it is not the personal property of the
individual who invests it" He advised
Flann's lawyer to make a formal request to
the lottery company in writing.
The charter of the lottery company ex
pires in December, 1894, and it is believed
that no fnrther charter will be granted if
there should be any formidable objection.
The lottery people have many friends down
in Louisiana. They believe this organiza
tion prevents gambling. Flann will have
to remain in jail until his trial takes place,
as he can't get bail.

SENATOR DKATO'S D0G-0HNED BATIOKS
Senator John F. Dravo formulated the
latest new dog law, and it passed both
brauches of the Legislature. It is safe to
say that there is more dogology on the stat
ute books of Pennsylvania and sister States
than legal lore on all other dumb animal
subjects. Though both Moses and Mohammed
discriminated against the dog, and only
tolerated him as a scavenger, he has held
his own, and is better acquainted with the
world at large than the world is with its
own statutes and ordinances. Some say the
Indian is descended from some of the lost
tribes to whom Moses gave law; but, though
the dog had no status worth speaking of
under his law, yet the average Indian prizes
his dog above his squaw, and expects the
faithful animal to bear him company in the
happy hunting ground of the great to come.
The dog, though the friend of man, is on
the whole a very injudicious friend. When
sowing his wild oats in the days of exuber
ant puppyhood, be usually destroys in value
his weight in silver, if not in gold, and his
indigenous appetite for mutton makes him
the terror of farmers. Occasionally he sucks
eggs, and his misdirected zeal, in behalf of
his owner's interest, has caused many a suit
in court ou charges of keeping a ferocious
dog or frightening horses.
HIS STATUS SOW FIXED.
Special laws for the management of the
dog dot the statute books as thickly as stars
in the firmament, and Senator Dravo has
added a general one which, Judge Fetter
man says, is almost entirely nugatory, save
in the feature of making the dog personal
property. This reduces him to the old-time
status of an African in the Sonthern States.
It is said that Red Jacket's classification
ran thus: "The white man first, the Indian
next, the dog next and the nigger next and
last" In Pennsylvania this is now
all changed; Mr. Dravo makes the doc per
sonal property, and the African isn't, and
hasn't been since 1865.
But, notwithstanding the prejudice in
favor of the dog, he, or rather his, master
labors under some disability. For instance,
it is now provided by Pennsylvania law
that the owner ofa supposed mad dog may
be cited before a Justice of the Peace, who
may direct that the dog be killed. Dogs
that worry sheep may be killed. Owners
are responsible for all damages caused by
dogs. Registered dogs have been regarded
as personal property. Dogs seen in an in
cisure with cattle or sheep may be killed,
and in consequence the life of an illiterate
dog has not always been a happy one.
In some instances special laws applying
to certain counties provide that damages
collected from owners by law-breaking dogs
shall be applied to the purchase of merino
sheep, whose offspring shall be divided
among the injured owners. In fact, as
Judge Fetterman observes, there are as
manv special dog laws as there are patents
'TWILL BE UNHEALTHY.
Senator Dravo'n bill provides among
other things that the owners of dogs shall
pay a tax of CO cents annually and of
bitches $L The tax is to be assessed the
same as that for the school fund and as
sessed by the township assessors the same as
on other property. The County Commis
sioners are directed to return to the school
directors of the various districts the number
ot dogs in each district and the tax is to be
paid to them. Iftheow;ner of a criminal
dog can be made to pay for his pet's torts in
the way of sheep killing, all right; if not,
such losses are to be divided pro rata, if the
tax fund be insufficient In adjudicating
claims the Justice of the Peace and town
ship auditors are allowed a fee of 50 cents
in each case, and, if there be a sur
plus of $100, it is to be covered into the
school fund. The mode of moving for re
lief is that when a person sustains loss by a
sheep-killing dog or dogs he can make an
information before a justice of the peace in
the township or borough where such loss is
sustained, and if the dog owner do not ap
pear, the County Assessor, after being as
sured of the loss, may proceed to carry out
sentence, and if the owner be responsible
the damage is to be collected in
full from him; if not, the fund
win be drawn upon. The township and
borough Boards of Assessors are required to
take a dog censns at the beginning of the
year 1890; but, as the act does not repeal
any of the special acts, the legal opinion is
given that all the verbiage and machinery
of the last act will have no other effect than
to make all dogs in the townships and bor
oughs of this Commonwealth personal prop
erty, and subject the man who steals one to
prosecution for larceny.
GEArEYIlTE FOOD WILL BE PLENTY.
It is said there are 75,000 dogs in this
county; but ere the assessors get to work it
is estimated that there will be a great mor
tality among them (the dogs). A man may
fight for his poodle, and yet be averse to
paying tax for him. It seems just the least
bit strange that the 30-ounce poodle and the
150-pound Newfoundland should be taxed
the same, it the object be the prevention of
sheep killing; but it is more than an even
chance that the tax will generally be paid
on the poodle more readily than on his
The Fallmaster does not set any great
store on dead dogs, so they will not likely go
to the schinderv to any considerable extent;
but it is said that the body of a dog put
under a grape vine is productive of great
results, so that viticulture is likely to re
ceive an immense impetus next year. "Tray,
Blanche and Sweetheart, little dogs and all,"
may find it necessary to call a convocation
to determine whether to bark at Senator
Dravo or fawn on him.
A Mad Dog Attacks and Bites Several Boys
an tbo Street.
On Friday the citizens of Wilkinshurg
were in a state of perturbation. A dog
afflicted with rabies came rushing down
Wood street and dashed into a crowd of five
boys. He"first bit Charlie Doran, tearing
his hind, and then snatched at the limb of
Charlie's brother, leaving but the prints of
his teeth on him. He also made a break
for Eddie Dickinson, springing upon his
shoulder and tore his hat into shreds.
The dog afterward ran frantically down
Main street, followed by Doran'a father,
with six other men. They finally cauirht
the dog in front of a bakery store, and not
nntil they had put eight bullets into him
was he beyond the power of doing further
mischief. Dr. Penning is attending the

directed effort in any department of busi

business at this time is great, and he who by

connection may be mentioned Dr. Tutt, of
New York, who has achieved a great victory
over competitors in the introduction of his
world renowned liver pills. In a compara

The life of a lawyer is not so free from
care as some suppose. In addition to the
constantly increasing differentiation and
specializing which makes it necessary for
one lawyer to devote himself to criminal,
another to international, and still another
to marine law, etc, if State Legislatures
continue to legislate the time is not far dis
tant when lawyers will be necessary as a
class to devote themselves exclusively to the
study, or rather memorizing, of State enact

before Alderman Mclnelrny yesterday
morning, qn a charge of assault and battery
preferred by Contractor R. S. Walters. The
prosecutor was sued before Hyndman by
two workmen, who were refused their pay
when it was demanded. Walters testified
that he would settle on pay day, but not be

in favor of the workmen. This angered
Walters, and it is alleged by the defendant
that Walters used violent language and re

THERE IS A SEQUEL
To the Perjury Suit of Wishart
Against Milkshake Martin.
IT IS FOLLOWED TIP IN COURTS.
Another Tangle in the Eouthslde Water
GENERAL HEWS OF THE COUNTI COUETS
Attorney Wm. Yost yesterday presented
a petition in the Quarter Sessions Court on
behalf of A. Wishart It was stated that
last summer John A. Martin had been fined
$25 and costs in each of two suits befortf
Alderman Carlisle, for selling on Sunday.
Martin appealed to court, holding that he
had already been fined before Alderman
Schafer for the same offenses, and had paid
the fines. Upon the strength of this the
Court gave judgment in favor of Martin,
releasing him from the payment of the fines
imposed,by Alderman Carlisle.
It is now claimed that a fraud was per
petrated, that no fines bad ever been paid to
Alderman Schafer. The Alderman denied
having ever received the fines when the
State's agent applied to him for payment of
them, and Martin now admits that he never
paid them. It is asked that the order of
court relieving Martin be revoked and that
he be compelled to pay the fines. Judge
Collier issued a rule on Martin to show
cause why the former order should not be
revoked. The case will be heard on Mon
day, August 19. This is a sequel to the suit
began this week before Alderman Brinker
by Captain Wishart, charging Martin with
A. J. Kearcher, the Federal street drug
gist, filed an appeal yesterday against the
sentence of Alderman Carlisle for selling
soda water on Sunday, July 27. The plain
tiff claims he was fined $25 and costs by
Alderman Tatem for the same offense, and
claims that he cannot be punished twice for
the same offense.
AS IKD1TIDUALS TOO.
The Directors of the aionongnhela Water
M. W. Watson, President of the Monon
gahela Water Company yesterday filed a
plea and answer in the equity suit of H.
Sellers McKee and others against the Mc
nongahela Water Company, Mr. Watson
and others. In the suit it was alleged that
certain stockholders of the Monongahela
Water Company, M. W. Watson. B. F.
Jones,T, B. Atterbury and J. S. Atterbury,
and John H. Dalzell, who was not then a
stockholder, had purchased' the plant of the
Manufacturers' Water Company. They had
been authorized by the company to purchase
theplant tor the company, but purchased it
as individuals. They then in turn sold
it to the Monongahela Water Company for
$450,000, a great advance over what they
had paid. The transaction, it was claimed,
was fraudulent, and the Coiirt was asked to
make the defendants refund the money they
had gained by it.
Mr. Watson in his plea states that the
purchase by the Monongahela Water Com
pany of the plant of the manufacturers'
company was made pursuant to a unani
mous vote of the stockholders of the former
company, the plaintiffs participating, and
they accepted and still hold their propor
tion of the stock distributed by T. B. Atter
bury, trustee for the stockholders of the
Manufacturers' Water Company. The plain
tiffs have also received dividends on their
stock. For this reason Watson asks that
the suit be dismissed. In his answer, also
filed, Watson states that the defendants pur
chased the Manufacturers' Water Company
as individuals, with their own means and
for the purpose of protecting their interests
in' the Monongahela company. The pur
chase was not made for the Monongahela
companv. The Monongahela company then
in a legitimate manner purchased the plant
from them, to do so increasing its capital
stock from $998,200 to $1,448,200.

The continued and increasing prosperity
of the glass city of Jeannette, on the main
line of the Pennsylvania Railroad, almost
near enough to be a suburb of Pittsburg, is
a matter ot wonder and interest to every ob

started on a tract ot 200 acres purchased for
that purpose, no one could foresee or place
a limit on the wonderful forces and capital
that would be employed in developing the
resources and advantages of that then quiet

town's growth and contiguous lands have
been recently purchased by the Western

in all the available territory not at the old
price, but at largely increased figures.
Even a section of country, known now as
East Jeannette, has realized the importance
of its nearness to Jeannette, has awakened
from its slumbers and has secured the loca
tion ofa nice little glass plant thatwill be
in operation in the early -fall. On the
southeastern portion of the town, on the
company's lands, will soon be erected
a large plant to manufacture steel and iron
