THE' PTTTSBiraG- DISPATCH, MONDAY, AUGUST 26,
A Largo Crowd of People Attend
the Murdered Han's Obsequies.
ELOQUENT SER110NS PREACHED.
Dr. Holland and Rev. Mr. Prngh Strongly
Condemn the Shooting.
PAIR FLOWERS ADORNED THE COFFIN
An immense throng of sympathizing
friends gathered yesterday afternoon to
participate in the fnncral obseqnies of John
T. Catcher, who was assassinated by W.
Lee, on Second avenue, last Friday. The
coffin was made of black ebony, and it was
placed in the front parlor. As the afternoon
sun shed its brilliant light through the
heavily draped window of green, it lit the
face of the murdered man into the resem
blance of life again; his countenance did
not bear evidence that life had ebbed away
in acute physical pain, but rather that "he
passed into that bourne whence no traveler
returns" calmly, and thoroughly resigned
to the inscrutable design of fate.
At the head of the coffin a magnificent
wreath and pillar of white immortelles and
roses was placed by the loving hands that
have been made fatherless by the bullet of
a desperate man, and inscribed to "Papa."
There were also two broken pillars. At the
summit of one of them was placed a beauti
ful bed of blue violets. On the coffin thcie
rested a sheaf of wheat.
Mrs. Natcher. whose mind has been
wnndering since the death of her husband,
calmed down about an hour before the
funeral. She was frequently heard to call
pathetically for her husband. During the
service she quietly cried, deeply realizing
the position she was left in. It was stated
yesterday that Mr. Catcher had an insur
ance on his life for $6,000, which he has
left absolutely to his widow.
At 2 o'clock, Mr. Prugh, of Grace Be
formed Church, called upon the people to
join him in prayer,'that God's mercy would
rest abundantly on the stricken house."
After the prayer the united choirs of Bell
field and Shadyside Presbyterian Churches
sang Cowper's popular hymn, "God Moves
in a Mysterious Way." Then the psalm
"So teach us to number our days that we
may apply our hearts to wisdom" was read.
Mr. Prugh addressed the family and
friends. He said:
HIS NOBLB TRAITS.
"The man that has been laid low by the
murderer's hand had some noble traits of
character. His death protoundly moved
me. It is well said that all flesh is grass.
"We are but the flowers of the field; in the
morning we flourish, as we bask in the sun
light, but night comes like a thief and
smites us down unaware. Two weeks ago I
was officiating at the funeral of a young
girl who was my friend, and I thought then
who would be the next. Had I had spoken
to our brother and asked him the question,
who would be the next, do you think he
would have thought of himself? No. We
recognize that all flesh is grass in other
people, but we are infidels concerning our
own mortality. How indifferent the human
family is to its own death. The history of
nations demonstrates this fact, the history
of individual lives indisputably proves it.
"Let us then turn our hearts to God, rest
more upon His word.
"I would sar to the desolated wife, to the
fatherless children, that God looks down
with infinite compassion upon you at this
time. All may be dark, and" the future look
"'arren and unpropitious, but behind the
(lack dark clout God, infinite, wise, loving
nd tender, hides a smiling face. We look
lpon a'face cald in death, eyes lusterless, a
ramc pulseless, but he is not dead; he lives
orcvermorel Instead of fighting the tumul-
"CuDus storms of life, he exists by the crystal
stream. The venom of his enemy can now
110 more reach him, for he dwells in a sphere
ot concord and peace. His sigh is changed
to a song, and his wounded body dwells now
amid the shimmering glories of heaven.
His eye is aflame with celestial fire; his leet
march in the great, army of redeemed. In
his hand he waves the victor's palm, and
his brow is wreathed with the conqueror's
AN ELOQUENT SERMON.
Dr. Holland next addressed the people. He
said, "We are here with conflicting
emotions of mingled horror, and indigna
tion, as well as pity. This death was sud
den, and terrible. Here we see the power
and vileness of sin; that hateful thing which
has cursed humanity from its earliest
history. It has strewn across the ages
victims of its rage. Death is the result of
sin; tears stream doirn the eyes of 10,000 in
awlul agony because sin lives with us.
This act proves what an iron grip it has
upon tbc human heart, how it can control
every act and prompt bad emotions. This
latent wickedness was like a consuming fire
in this man. until bis moral nature was
burnt out. It urged him to commit an act
which engraves into his forehead 'mur
erer.' Woe to its posscssers. God grant
that the world mav be rid of it. We sym
pathize with this Home. God knows our
Leart is with the mother and children.
"Let me say this is not an act of God.
Eatan lives in" the world; he moves, and
prompts human action, and this act is the
devil's doing. God is a loving Father; the
government of the world is in His hand.
We cannot pry into His government; we can
not ask Him to unravel 1 lis mysterious work
ings, but we will ask Him to tenderly look
down on this family and bless them. He
will bring light out of darkness. He has
not forsaken you; I say to all, trust Him
and hate sin "
Dr. Holland here prayed for God's mercy
to rest upon the home. "The choir then sang
"Nearer My God to Thee."
After the sermons had been preached the
body was privately interred in the JHonie
wood Cemetery. The pall bearers were
William M. Brown, John Mcllroy, William
Price, Mr. Roseberg, L. C. McCormack and
THE OTHER SIDE.
Was Rev. Mr. Bnrnett Fully Connected
With the Cumberland Cbnrchf
A gentleman who was formerly a member
of the Union Park Chapel, of the Cumber
land Presbyterian Church, and now an at
tendant at Rev. Koehne's Church at Curry
"University, called at The Dispatch office
to explain some of the reasons why that
chapel has seceded and intends to join the
Congregational denomination. He claims
that Rev. Bamett was never fully connected
with the Cumberland Chnrch, having re
fused to submit himself to its complete
jurisdiction, because he knew that if he did
bo the State Synod or the Board of Missions
would have power to remove him to another
The Synod proposed to furnish the chapel
with $l,5O0 for the first payment of 53,000
on the property, and afterward to pay the
remaining $9,000, if the church and the pas
tor would submit entirely to thegovernment
of the Synod. As the cliurch decline J to do
this, the money was not furnished. It was
proposed also by the Synod to take a mort
gage on the church property, and to this the
Allegheny church would not agree. The
Synod and the local congregation have not
been in harmony since the Union Park
Chapel was first considered a Cumberland
Presbyterian mission. The gentleman who
is quoted says that the church at present has
not nearly 70 members, many having left it
because thev did not like the independent
methods of Rev. J. H. Barnctt
TnK liberal use of Tlatt's Chlorides is
wisdom and economy combined.

Officer Cross Falls Down a Hntcuwnyln
Making; n. Raid.
The police had a lively time yesterday
afternoon raiding a crowd of colored "crap
shooters" at No. 101 Water street. Officer
Cross, who assisted, fell down a hatchway
and was injured internally.
Colored men have been gathering in
large numbers in this house to play their
favorite game, and it was expected the
usual large crowd would be on hand yester
day. The officers surrounded the building
as well as they could, and then Coulson,
Cross and two or three others entered the
building. The men were playing in an up
stairs room, and when they heard the tramp
of the police broke for the rear windows.
From the windows they got out on the flat
roofs ot a number of buildings in that vi
cinitv. and as thev knew the location well
all but six of tbem made their escape, al
though the officers chased them hard.
In the chase Officer Cross got away outon
the roofs some distance from the building
he had entered, and, in older to save time
in getting down to the street, accepted an
invitation to go down a stairway in a busi
ness house, extended by a watchman. Bight
beside the head of the stairway was an elc
votor hatch, which, on account of the dark
ness, the officer did not sec, and he stepped
into it, falling to the cellar, a distance of
about 1C leet. When picked up by his
brother officers it was found that his right
shoulder was badly broken, and he was
injured internally, "so that Captain Silvis
ordered him taken to the Homeopathic
Cross is one of the best police officers on
the force, and will be missed greatly.
The colored men who were arrested gave
their names as James Gray, Charles
Wheaton, Charles Bass, Lewis Hunter,
Charles (Janaway and Charles Neal.
FOR $50,000 A TEAR.
The Pittsburg Company Will Fnrnlsh Fil
tered Water for Allegheny.
The Pittsburg Company will make a
proposition to the Allegheny Councils at
their next meeting to supply the city with
filtered water for $50,000 annually. The
company asks to lay the pipes and make a
satisfactory test before any money from the
city is required.
Theodore Doerflinger is chairman of the
company; John K. McCrickart, Secretary,
and Henry P. McCollough, Treasurer.
Among the other members of the company
are George W. Crawford, of the Diamond
National Bank; George P. Letsche, of the
Standard Oil Company. J. W. Fleming, of
the Farmers' Deposit National Bank;
Sheriff McCandless, Mavor McCallin, City
Clerk Booth, Morton "Hunter and W. S.
Brown, the gun manufacturer.
The plan of the company is to take the
water Irom near the head of Six Mile
Island, about a mile above Sharpsburg.
This water will be filtered and piped to
Allegheny, where it will be delivered in the
well at the River avenue pumping station.
From there the city pumps will lift the
water to the present reservoirs, the com
pany's part being merely to deliver the
filtered water at the pumping house.
The gentlemen interested have been
thinking about the matter for several
months, have had surveys made and esti
mates furnished, on which they base their
bid. They state that they have the necessary
capital, and will have the plant in opera
tion in six months. The method of filtera
tion has not been made known, except that
no chemicals are used, and that it has been
tested successfully in th- East.

Ex-Solicitor General Jenks Tells a
Good Story About Cleveland.
HE STOOD BY A POOR REPUBLICAN,
The Chief of a Division, With an Army
Record, Who Wanted to Quit.
IT WAS NOT ALL POLITICS WITH HIM
If George A. Jenks would tell what he
knows of the inside history of the last ad
ministration what mighty interesting read
ing it would make, but the ex-Solicitor
General, though genial and always willing
to talk to reporters, is also very politic.
Ho certainly enjoyed the fullest confi
dence of Mr. Cleveland, or he never would
have been selected as the diplomat to feel
the Old Roman on the subject of the vice
presidency. Mr. Jenks is a great admirer
of tho late President, and never tires laud
ing his virtues and good qualities.
The other day when Mr. Jenks-was in the
city attending to some legal business he re
lated an incident which illustrates Cleve
land's generosity and his love of a straight
"It is the general impression among Re
publicans," said Mr. Jenks, "that Cleve
land is a cold and unsympathetic man, but
people say this because they don't know
him. I never met a man with a kinder
heart, or one who was always so willing to
do a friend a favor, or help people in dis
tress. I remember one day when calling on
the President to consult him about some de
partment matters, I found him looking over
a lot of papers. He kept glancing at some
of them while we talked.
' HE ADMIRED THE LETTER.
"Suddenly he stopped and said:
" 'Jenks, here is a resignation that I like.
There is something so straightforward about
the style that I must know more about the
man and his case before I accept it'
'It was the resignation of the chief of a
division, and quite the common thing at
that stage of the game, since he was a Re
publican. I forgot all about the affair, but
some weeks afterward the President met me
on the street and said:
" 'Do you remember that resignation I
showed you some time ago?'
"I confessed I didn't remember it, bnt
after Mr. Cleveland had prodded my memo
ry a little further I recalled the event.
"Well, he replied, "that chief of the di
vision will not resign if I can prevent it. I
have looked up his record, and 1 find he is
a deserving man. In the first place he is
fully competent to do the work, and that is
the first consideration. He is a Southerner,
but served in the Northern army. After
the war he drifted into one of the depart
ments and has worked his way up to his
present position. He has nine children,
and has been in the service of the Govern
ment so long that it is almost impossible for
him to turn his attention to other business
and make a living for himself and family.
GKOTER NEEDED HIM.
"He conceived the idea that as he was a
Republican, his services wonld be no longer
needed, but he is just the. kind of man we
want I wrote on his letter of resignation
that it was net accepted, and the President
desired him to remain at his post
"There," continued Mr. Jenks, "that is
the sort of man Cleveland is. Amid his
distracting duties he went to the trouble to
look up the history of an unknown man. the
chief of a division, and finding him deserv
ing, asked him to stay. But thisonlvseems
to illustrate his kindheartedness and sym
pathetic nature. 1 could relate other inci
dents in which the ex-President figured that
reveal his noble qualities, but it is not
necessary. I don't want to hear anyone say
that Grover Cleveland is a cold, indifferent
man. He is not, far from it"
"Will the Democrats run him again?"
"I am out of politics," he replied.
GR0WIKG TOWARD COMPLETION.
Tbo Central Traction Road Work Is Hurried

More Improvements Contemplated tor St.
At the several masses yesterday the list of
contributors to the fund for the decoration
and renovation of 'St Paul's Cathedral was
read. Those who had promised to contrib
ute, but had not yet done so, were requested
to send in their envelopes.
In addition to the improvements already
noted in The Dispatch it has been de
cided to put in eight new stained glass
windows, with pictures of saints, at a cost
of $500 each. It is expected that the win
dows will be donated by members of the
congregation. The present windows will be
taken out and the casements enlarged. It
is expected that the work will be completed
and the scaffolding all removed by Christ

Peter Downld Was Struck With n. Bar In a
Spenk-Easy Fight It Required Six
Slitchrs to Close Dp the Wound.
The Southside was prolific of arrests yes
terday and last night. Inspector McKel vey
seems to have waged a war against the
"speak-easies." Twenty-two prisoners were
in the Twenty-eighth ward station house at
10 o'clock last night, and as a result of the
day's work Barney Farrcl and Carrie Slide
man, better known to the police as "Pans
green," will be arraigned before Magistrate
Drokaw on charges of selling liquor without
license and on Sunday, and John Sullivan
for aggravated assault and battery.
About 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon In
spector McKel vey and several officers raided
the "speak-easy"' of Barney Farrell, at 100
Washington avenue, and the proprietor and
six men were "arrested and taken to the
station house, where they gave bail for their
appearance this morning. The men arrested
in the place gave the names of Albert and
Harry Mitchell, David Cross, John Beld
inger, Isaac Lane and William Corliss.
About 7 o'clock last night u serious row
occurred in a place on Monastery avenue,
kept by Carry Slidman, in which Peter
Dewald'was assaulted with beer glasses and
a shutter bar.i There were four men and
two women in the place, the latter being the
proprietress and a woman named Ella
Clark. A fight followed about the women.
One of the men struck Dewald a fearful
blow on the head with a shutter bar, and
another hit him with a beer glitss.
,The police were called and Mrs. Slid
man, Ella Clark. John Sullivan and De
wald were taken to the Twenty-eighth ware
station. Two men escaped. Their names
are not known, but the police think Sulli
van is the man who struck Dewald with the
bar, although the latter will not say so.
Sullivan lives in Homestead.
Dr. Moyer was called and dressed the
wounds on Dcwald's head. It required six'
stitches to close up the cut on his lorehead.
TWO SERIOUS EVILS.
Rev. Mr. McCrory Prencncs on Drunken
ness and bnbbath Breaking.
Rev. J. T. McCrory preached last night
on the snbject: "A look from the watch
tower, public morals, righteous law, opposi
tion from part of the press and people."
The subject is certainly comprehensive
enough, but his salient points were drunken
ness and Sabbath breaking. He claimed
that the former produced the latter, and one
of the causes of intoxication, he stated to be,
were the 800 speak-easies which he says
exist in the city at present.
He denouueed officials for not properly
enforcing the laws, and defended the Law
and Order Society. His text was taken
from Isaiah, where the prophet speaks of
the watchmen on the towers of the city as
asleep. He applied his text to the conduct
of public officers of the present day.
He also condemned the policy of carrying
the mails on the Sabbath day.
