THE PITTSBURG- DISPATCH, IHDAT, AUGUST 23, 1889,-
Bivermen Decide to Dredge the Biter
Within the City Harbor.
IT WON'T COST THEM MUCH MONEY.

Than Fight the City.
NAVIGATION IS ALMOST INTEBEUPTED
The Coal Exchange held & meeting yes
terday, and among other things decided to
dredge the Monongahela river from the
Smithfield bridge to lock No. 1. The meet
ing was a general gathering of the river
men, who had become very apprehensive
about the condition of navigation in the
The river yesterday was down to 18
inches, the lowest for 20 months, and if it
should lower an inch or so more none hut
the very smallest boats can make the slack
water from the docks. This wonld be a
serious condition of affairs, and practically
tie up all the upriver packet boats, with
their daily mail, passengers and large
Those in charge of the work of repairing
the wickets at Davis Island dam said yes
terday that they could not be raised before
next week. This makes the situation rather
grave, and rivermen fear that all navigation
may be stopped in the next two or three
At present boats cannot ply between
"Wheeling and Pittsburg. The Stockdale
sent her passengers by rail to the city from
the former place.
The worst point in the Monongahela
channel is just above the Panhandle bridge
at the month of the city sewerf where a large
bar has been formed, seriously interfering

and must be moved. At the meeting it was
argued by some that the city should remove
the bar, as it was formed by a city sewer,
but others said that though the city could
probably be made to do so by a process of
law, it would take too long, and would ne
cessitate too much red tape, and it was
urgent that the bar should be removed at
once. Again, though the law would doubt
less decide with rivermen, the cost of legal
proceedings to remove the bar, they
decided to do it themselves. The city may
hear from them later about the washings
from the sewer.
Several plans of dredging the channel
were discussed, and at last one gentleman
offered to be one of six to furnish a steam
boat provided with scrapers which the
steamboatmen use to clean the channel near
their wharfs. The channel mu dredged
about four years ago. It was paid for by
subscription irom the different, rivermen,
the Monongahela Navigation Company
doing the work. The present plan is con
sidered cheaper, and is estimated not to cost
more than $500 or $600.
The dredging can not commence until the
dam is raised, making water enough for the
moving of the boats. As soon as this is
done the six boats will commence operating.
AN OLD PIEB TO BE BEHOVED.
A resolution was also passed at the meet
ing notifying the Smithfield Street Bridge
Company to remove one of the piers to the
old bridge, which was not taken away, to
the bottom of the river and is now a menace
to boats navigating the Monongahela.
Colonel Merrill was also notified to re
Bfbve the roots and snags at the mouth of
Raccoon creek, below Beaver. This is the
"Sstruction which sank the Enterprise not
ig ago. Joseph Walton, John A. "Wood,

A BIG CUKTEACT.
D. W. C. Carroll Will Build 75 Oil Tank
for a Western Corapnny.
D. "W. C Carroll has secured a contract
for the construction of 75 steel oil tanks.
The carrying capacity of each tank will be
165 barrels. They will be strapped to gon
The contract price is (87,000, and the work
will be finished by January 1. It has not
been definitely announced who the cars are
tor, but it has leaked out that the tanks are
for a large oil refinery at San Diego, Cal.
The San Diego company intends going
heavily into refining, and for this purpose
they have acquired large holdings in the
oil fields in this section, and also in the
Lima fields. The crnde product will be
shipped from Pittsburg to the San Diego re
fineries, and after it has been refined it will
be sent over to the Sandwich Islands and
the East. The company has its own plate
mill and makes its own cases.
The company has large refineries in St.
Lonis and has already taken large quantities
ot Lima oil there. Those interested live in
Stockton, Cal., and are all wealthy men.
TO MEET A'EXT TDESDAT.
Tbo Flood Belief Cominltteo Will Confer
It is more than probable that the Flood
Belief Committee will meet at Johnstown
next Tuesday. Mr. J. M. Scott, one of the
Pittsburg members of the commission, said:
"My opinion is that the commission ought
to meet in Johnstown once a week. I know
from my own experience at the last meeting
that the people of the stricken town were
only too pleased to see us. It inspires them
with new confidence and they like to talk
to the commission about the progress of the
work. I believe that a meeting will be
called for next week, and as some of the
Pittsburg members will not be able to at
tend it in the latter part of the week I am
just about to write a note to the secretary
asking him to arrancre the meeting for Tues
day, if possible, and I think that will be
Republican to Meet.
The second annual convention of the Re
publican League of Pennsylvania will be
held in this city September 24.
President Stuart, of Philadelphia, urges
the necessity of immediately electing
delegates. The visitors will be the

The committee to arrange the programme
are Messrs. McCleary, McDowell, Gripp,

Last Friday the Fort Wayne toad broke
its record for carrying freight. From 7
o'clock Friday morning until the same hour
on Saturday morning the actual movement
ofcarswas2,G81. In addition there was a
movement of 250 cars in the lower yard.
It required 115 loaded engines and 18
shipping engines to move the cars. Between
Federal street depot and the Union station
the freight trains had to contend with 38
loaded passenger trains and 63 empty pas
Over the grade crossing at Federal street
one train ran every eight minutes,
which makes 186 in 21 hours. At
the West Penn crossing, the Ft,
Wayne passed 76 freight trams,
88 passenger trains and 4A mpty engines.
At the same crossing the West Penn sent
over 38 loaded passenger trains and as many
empty passenger trains. From Federal
street west the movement over the Washi
ington avenue crossing was 61 passenger
trains, 51 freight trains," 58 empty engines:
About 540 'trains and engines passed over
this' crossing in one day.
Superintendent Starr stated that the Pan
handle business for 1888 amounted to 77,000
cars, of which 45,000 were loaded. These
figures apply to the coal traffic only, and
not to coke. It can be figured what a relief
it will be to be rid of hauling these 77,000
cars through theyards of the two cities. The
opening of the Oliio connecting railroad
will obviate this.
HARD AT IT.
Everything Being; Boomed Down About the
Work is being pushed forward at the Ex
position with rapidity. In" the main build
ing the exhibitors are commencing the
erection of platforms. Manager Johnson
yesterday ktated, however, that the exhib
itors who have space allotted to them are
not making anv special effort to get articles
of exhibit in shape. He thinks there is not
the slightest reason why the exhibition
should not be opened on the day appointed,
with the exhibits in place. The ceiling
will be covered with flags and bunting,
which will give the main hall a very beau
tiful appearance. The contractors for ma
chinery hall have promised to let the society
have the floor next week. The refreshment
rooms are almost completed.
The Exposition is a good thing for insur
ance business; the pictures that are in the
hall at present are insured for $60,000, and
it will be swelled to $80,000 when all are de
livered. The building is insured for $100,
000, and another $50,000 will be placed as
soon as the building is completed. The
amount of insurance on exhibits will be
about $250,000. The grand total which will
be placed on buildings and exhibits will
reach $500,000. Two hundred persons will
be employed by the exposition and exhibi
tors for a period of two months. There are
500 applicants for the positions. . The fi
nance committee will act on them to-day.
Mr. Lautenslager.of Edward Groctzinger's

Two boys, each aged about 15 years, and
giving their names as Jo"hn Wiley and John
Maurer, were picked up on the street by the
police on Wednesday, as it appeared they
were strangers and in trouble.
At Central station the boys admitted they
had run away from their homes in Phila
delphia, and gave the officers the address
of their parents. Word was telegraphed, at,
once to the Philadelphia police', and a reply"
came yesterday that Wiley's parents had
been found and would send money to have
him sent home. Maurer's folks could not
be found, aa addresses furnished by both
boys were incorrect. '

Work Done at Johnstown.
Wm. Anschntz, the contractor, yesterday
entered suit againrt Wm. Flinn, of Booth &
Flinn, for $2,558 for work done at Johns
town. Anschntz claims that Flinn engaged
him to go to Johnstown with two hoisting
engines and .crews to work at clearing out
the town, promising to see that he was paid.
His bill was for the amount claimed, which
he has never received. '-
It is pretty well known that Booth &
Flinn themselves have not yet been paid for
these services at Johnstown.
Plenty or Water.
Superintendent Armstrong said yesterday
afternoon that he expected to have the ba
sin of the Allegheny Water Works cleaned
last night. If it is not there will be no
failure of water in the hill districts. The
great consumption of water at the oil re
finery fire having ceased, the pumping en
gines are now able to force the water to
every part of the city. The Superintendent
says that there was more mud in the basin
at the cleaning than ever before. The state
ment that it had been five years since the
basin was cleaned was an error. It was
cleaned three years ago.
To be Tested Next Week.
The Duquesne Electric Company has
been laying a new system of electric street
car motors along West Carson street. The
track is about completed between Smithfield
street and the Point bridge... Some of the
machinery has not arrived and the trial was
not made yesterday. The trial will not
take place until next Wednesday.
Typhoid Not Spreading.
The typhoid fever, which for two months
past has been prevalent in the West End,
is now decreasing considerably. There are
but a few cases left, though many cases of
malarial fever of a mild degree exist. The
physicians have no fear now of an epidemic
from either disease.

CANNED FED1T WON'T BE PLENTY,
Because tie Season Is Slow and Tery Back
ward This lear.
THE WOMEN STICK TO BEAL1NG WAX
Inquiry among the manufacturers and
dealers in cans for fruit, develops the fact
that the old-fashioned tin can of the grand
mothers holds its place in popular favor, in
spite of the multiplication ot patent sealers
for glass cans. The sale of cans of all kinds
has been less this year than during the
previous two or three years, because of the
backwardness of the season and the de
creased production of fruit
Bankin & Holdship, manufacturers of
cans and pails, report a steady increase in
the general trade in manufactured tin goods,
hut a very poor demand for frnit cans. Mr.
Holdship said yesterday: "Last year we
sold about 2,000 gross of cans for fruit It
was a good season. This year the season is
backward. It has been wet and cold. Of
course, as we deal only with the wholesale
trade, we cannot tell as much about the
fluctuations of the consumers' demands as a
retailer. I think tin cans for preserving
frnit are holding their own, although glass
cans are now used for many kinds of fruit.
Some fruits contain acids which attack the
tin and the solder. Tomatoes contain
considerable acid, but tin is generally
used for them by wholesale canners. Can
ning houses prefer tin because it is more
safely shipped, not being so liable to break
age. That makes no difference with persons
who can for family use.
"There has been no decrease in the price
of tin plate since this firm took possession
here, but that has been only 18 months.
Tbe price of tin plate controls the price of
tin cans and other tinware. While there
may be a slight falling off in the demand
for fruit cans this season, there is a steady
increase when we take the business of three
or four years together."
A SLOW SEASON.
John Dunlap & Co. turn out the stamped
tops and bottoms for cans which they sell to
other manufacturers. Mr. Dunlap said:
"Last year we sold about; 19,000 gross of
tops and bottoms. I think this will be an
average season, although it is very late.
The tomato crop has hardly begun. Tin
cans are used generally for tomatoes and
peaches, which come at the end of the can
ning season. It is, therefore, a little too
early to say how the canning season will be.
It is slow so far, but the last halt of the
season may make up for it I hardly think
it will, however. The peach crop will be
light The sale of cans to consumers runs
until about the end of September."
Demmler Brothers deal with the retail
tinware trade. One of the members of the
firm said yesterday: "This has been a weak
season for tin cans. The Iruit crop is light,
and tomatoes and peaches are specially
scarce. In fact, they are just coming into
the market. Another thing, last season
there was a great deal of troit, and the
women put up so much stuff that many fam
ilies have a great deal left over this year.
We are taking care not to get too large a
stock on hand.
"One retailer was telling me yesterday
that his customers are falling back to tin
cans. A great deal of fruit can't stand
light and that is why glass is not so popu
lar. Another of our customers told me
this morning that his glass can trade is fall
ing oft Since the invention of various
kinds of rubber stoppers for glass1" cans the
women have tried glass for the small frnits.
They don't like them, "however, and are go
ing back to the old-fashioned tin cans and
BASPBEBBIES MADE OKAY.
"I know a lady who put up a lot of red
raspberries last year in glass. When she
came to use them she found that they had
faded and become gray. The taste may not
have been affected, bnt that didn't make
any difference. As long as they did not
look well she did not think them fit to put
on the table. You know that is the way the
women are. Things must look well re
gardless of their taste. White butter may
be just as good as yellow butter, but it
won't do. I know one woman who has
adopted the plan of wrapping paper and
cloth around her glass jars to keep the light
from the fruit
"Tinners are not fond of making cans.
They have been getting so cheap that there
is very little money in making or selling
them. We do not solicit the trade to buy
cans. We simply hold ourselves ready to
supply the demand, but our agents are in
structed not to say anything about cans."

was his assistant In the flood Mr. Poland's
children were all drowned. He and his
wife have no portraits of their lost darlings,

WESTING HOUSE RETALIATES.
A Now Electric Street Car Scheme Brought
Out Scon Tbe Pittsburg Company
Miows a Bold Front to Thomson-Houston.
In an interview with one of the officers
of the Wcstinghonse Electric Company re
garding the controversy between the Wesl
inghonse and the Tnomson-Houston com
panies, that gentleman said yesterdav:
Concerning the statement in the Post of
Monday morninsr, the Westinghouse people
look upon the efforts of the Thomson-Houston
Company to create a sentiment in Pitts
burg unfriendly to them, in the rosnner
undertaken, as simply ridiculous. The un
easiness and alarm of the Thomson-Houston
management concerning the possible conse
quences of the suit brought by the Westing
house Company, has been manifested to the
Westinghouse interests in many ways, and
they naturally expect that the Thomson
Houston people will resort to every possible
expedient to keep their local companies in
the line of buying apparatus from them, not
withstanding the business of such purchasers
may be seriously influenced by the result of
the suits that have been brought against the
The announcement of the Thomson-Houston
Company that they propose to bring the
fight to Pittsburg probably means that, as
they will have to defend this case in Pitts
burg, they will do so with all their energies,
as any other course would be fatal to them.
The Westinghouse Company has not here
tofore made any effort to retaliate, but here
after the Thomson-Houston Company will
find it can be very effectively done as re
gards their specialties. The Thomson
Houston Company have of late devoted
their energies very largely to the develop
ment of electric street railways, and have
invested large sums of . money on the spur
of the moment in numerous railway enter
prises. It is in this direction they will be
met by the Westinghouse Com
pany with an apparatus which
will be offered in competition with
the Thomson-Houston, to its customers, with
a certainty of a large use, since many of the
difficulties that have heretofore been en
countered will be obviated, and great econo
mies effected in the cost of apparatus and in
the use of the electric current
Previous to railwav work, the Thomson
Houston Company relied upon arc lighting
for the bulk of its business, but in this
branch of the business the Westinghouse
people claim that they now have a system
so far superior to the Thomson-Houston that
they will be able to get more than tbeir
share of tbe arc lighting business, and they
propose to give tbe Thomson-Houston people
a full dose of their own medicine in the arc
lighting business; and they feel their ability
to do so, since the apparatus referred to can
be manufactured and sold at a price greatly
below that now charged by the Thomson
Houston Company to its customers.
