it forcibly to others. Ministers shonld be ob

PIG IE0N WAEKANTS.
How They Have Been Recognized by the
New York Stock Exchange.
The ruling of the Committee on Unlisted Se
curities of the New York Stock Exchange for
the sale of pig iron warrants provides that the
warrants shall be issued by the American Pig
Iron Storage Warrant Company. Each warrant
shall be for 100 tons of pig iron, and but one
brand of iron and one' grade of iron shall be
covered by the same warrant. All bids and
offers shall be for lots of 100 tons. All sales of,
or contracts for warrants shall be understood
to be for No. 2 foundry iron. Provision is made,
however, for other grades at specified differ
ences (a prices. Also for the delivery of war
rants for iron stored in yards of the American
Fig Iron Storage Company elsewhere, less
specified rates of freight, A storage charge of
2 cents per ton per month, or a fraction of a
month, to run from tho first of the month fol
lowing the date of the warrant, will be payable
at the time of its surrender. The accrued stor
age on warrants shall be deducted from the
price, in the same manner as the freight at the
time of delivery of the warrant. The Exchange
will keep a record of good merchantable brands;
also a record of the official difference in value
between No. 2 foundry and other deliverable
grades; also a record of the rates of freight from
different warrant yards to New York.
The American Pig Iron Storage Warrant
Company announces that 4 grades and 15 brands
of iron have been recorded for sale. All but
two are Southern brands, including Sloss,
Ensley, Cltico, Eureka and others. Other
brands will be added, and furnaces desiring to
put their brands in a position to sell on the
Stock Exchange are requested to forward to
the Warrant Company samples of their grades.
The Warrant Company will attend to the mat
ter ot placing the different brands on the Stock
Exchange, without cost to the furnaces. Fur
naces who do not wish to prepare warrant
yards until after iron has been sold to go into
said yards can sell for delivery "at sellers' op
tion" within 60 days, which will give time to
prepare yards and take out warrants before the
time of delivery.

GOOD DRAWING CARD.
Thursday and Friday Are the Popu
lar Days at the Exposition.
BIG CB0WDS OF PEOPLE PRESENT.
Machinery Ball and the Fine Art Gallery
Diride the Honors.
SOME ATTEACTI0KS FOE THE FUTURE
The Exposition continues to be a great
drawing card. It seems that Thursday and
Friday are the popular days, at least the
biggest crowds are always present during
this part of the week. Yesterday a large
number of excursionists came in from the
Machinery Hall contlnnes to be the prin
cipal attraction, with the art gallery a close
second. It is surprising how people
like to linger in both departments.
Hen with mechanical bents take kindly
to the machinery in motion, and doubtless
have secured many valuable pointers about
mechanical appliances. The lovers of art
have ample opportunity to study some ex
cellent specimens of painting.
The billiardists from Chicago have proved
a good drawing card. Air. Shaw and his
wife play the "gentleman's game" in neat
fashion. The concerts by the Great Western
Band are very much appreciated.
The management is planning for a num
ber of amusements that will catch the
people. The Welsh night will soon come
off, when the various Welsh societies will
be given an opportunity to show what they
can do. The announcements for next week
will be made to-day.
The following programme of favorite airs has
been prepared by Conductor Weis for popular
paet 12 o'clock;
1. Grand March Koppltz
2. Selection, "McAllister's Legacy".... Brahani
3. Potpourri, "Musical Pastimes''. Cnrth
4. Gavotte," "Prlscilla" Hill
5. Quickstep, "Grand Canton Sassacus No. 1,"

a Waltz. "Woman's Love" Fahrbach
3. Grand cosmoporeia Wegefarth
5. Galop, "The Storm" Strauss
91 and 93 Fifth Avenne.
Few'exhibits in the Exposition have io many
visitors constantly around them as this one. A
great many attractions hover about the place,
but they are all musical. The superb pianos
yield a vast amount of pleasure to thai listen
ers. Whether the Decker Bros', grands or cabi
nets are played, the massive tones and won
derful svmpathy enthral the mind. The
Knabe,Fischer and Estey divide the honors with
Decker Bros. There has just been placed on
the stand an elegant Fischer piano with white
ash case. It is a perfect beauty. The few na
tural wood cases at the Hamilton exhibit are
not an iota, or even an expression, of the won
derfnl variety at the store where there are
hundreds to select from.
THE CELEBRATED ESTEY OBQAK,
with its new automatic improvements, viz: au
tomatic music desk, automatic key slip, auto
matic case front, automatic case back, auto
matic figure head, placeslt atthe head of these
instruments. These automatic improvements
can only be obtained in the Estey organs. Not
withstanding all these extra advantages, which
render them superior to all, and the excellence
of all the parts. Improved beyond the expres
sion of mere type to convey, the Estey is as
cheap as any organ in the market. Their facil
ities are constantly increasing; tbey have eight
factories at their plant in Brattleboro, Vt,,
working all the time to keep up with orders.
Everything that machinery androodern science
can accomplisn to cheapen production they
have, and so people at large can now have an
Estey organ tor a moderate price, when in the
past they were most expensive.
OLOUQH A WABBEX COMBINATION CHUBCH
are so much better instruments than many
cheap pipe organs that find their way into
halls, churches and public buildings and never
fill the bill This grand instrument is far cheap
er in the long run, and has given satisfaction In
so many instances that Mr. Hamilton has
chosen it as his leading instrument for this
service. See the list of indorsements and the
churches, halls, eta, whero the dough & War
ren have been put. The Hamilton stand is
near the central entrance. Look out for thri big
sign, jnst pnt up, with gold letters on bine sur
face, and make yourselves at home among the
elegant Instruments, and, when in town, don't
fail to come to the Hamilton building, which is
one of the sights of Pittsburg.

anything of the kind, do not neglect to exam

TINNED PLATE MANUFACTURING
At West End of Exposition Grounds.
During the erection of this plant which will
be used to illustrate the manufacture of tin
plate (sheet Iron and sheet steel coated with
tin), much interest has been shown by people
who are anxious to see it in operation. It will

show, to know that on Saturday, September
28, at 2 o'clock P. M. the factory will be started,
and the fall process of the manufacture of tin
plate will be fully demonstrated. This tin plate

This exhibit Is one of the drawing cards of
the Exposition, large crowds being in and
around it at all hours. The peculiar shape of
the space has been used to show off' the instru
ments to best advantage; they are faced out

pleasure. A very fine piano is the new Hard

been added. These Hardmans have a very sat

great durability; the numbers of these pianos

A case was heard before Alderman Gripp
yesterday in which a sewing machine agent
sued his principal for commissions, and the
hearing developed a strange state offsets in
the business. The agent got a certain
amount for negotiating a sale, and 25 per
cent on collections over and above the
amount allowed for old machines, but If the
principal decided to allow a discount, that
action cut the agent out of everything ex
cept the stipulated snm paid for getting the
An idea of how beautifully such an ar
rangement would work for the benefit of the
principal may be seen by the analysis of a
transaction. Suppose a machine is sold at
575, and $35 allowed on an old machine
taken in exchange. The agent's commission
would be $11 25. Suppose then the princi
pal submits on delivery of the machine (the
agent had nothing to do with the delivery),
to make it even money for, prompt payment,
and accept $40, he could just get away with
the agent to the extent of $6 25. Liberality
to the customer in that case would be a
profitable business. Of course, this jug
handled arrangement would be apt to be
terminated on settlement day. but that day
on one pretext or another might be delayed
for a considerable time if the agent were
confiding, aud could manage to exist a con
siderable period on the stipulated sum to be
paid on turning in the order.
The testimony developed a state of affairs
regarding Instructions to agents how to con
summate sales in cases where an opposition

payment oT a dollar and other valuable con
siderations. Some people think, and with
considerable reason, that political economy
should be taught in common schools to ena
ble people to understand the wiles of politi
cians, bnt if this composite contract busi
ness is to be developed much further, it will
become necessary for all people to study
law or keep out of business entirely.
The magistrate reserved his decision, but
from questions he persisted in asking the
plaintiff it seemed that some arrangements
were all turkey on one side and buzzard on

be traced to some pupil of Tallyrand.
POINTS FOE MRS. SCHENLEY.
By Eedncinc Her Eatate She May Make
Moro Ont of'tbe Remainder.
That'part of the Schenley estate lying in
Oakland, 178 acres, is to be improved. It
is to be laid out in lots 'and the plans are in
possession of Mr. Torrence, the agent of
Mrs. Schenley. The property is to be laid
out in the manner of Boulevard Place, East
End, and will, when built up, resemble ele
gant little parks dotted with fine residences.
Divided into lots the value ot the property
is estimated at 1,000,000. As agricultural
land, valued at $2,500 to $5,000 an acre,
Mrs. Schenley gets no revenue from it,
as the taxes are $8,000 a year in excess of
W. F. Casey has four acres of the upper
end of the farm lying on Fifth avenue
rented for 50 years at a small rental, the en
hancement of the remainder in valne by the
erection of buildings having been depended
upon by the agent for remuneration. Mr.
Casey has had ten houses built on the proper
ty, aud five more partly built, and they were
all rented before completion. The venture
has been so successful that Mr. Casey is
now negotiating for the purchase of the four
acres, with intent to lay it ont as a park
and sell it in lots. Cable cars will soon
bring the entire tract within half an hour's
ride of the business portion of the city.
Mrs. Schenley's net income from her
Pittsburg property is abont $200,000 a year,
and should she sell $1,000,000 or $2,000,000
worth of it the remainder would be so en
hanced in yalne as to make the return from
it larger than the whole is at present, and
the growls of taxpayers on account of Mrs.
Schenley allowing so much land to lie waste
wonld be abated.
FAY0EABLE ACTION TAKEN.
A Lot to bo Purchased for Fire Purposes
on the Soatbtidc.
The Committee on Pnblie Safety met yes
terday afternoon and recommended the
ordinance for the purchase of a lot in the
Thirty-first ward for fire engine purposes.
This ordinance had been passed by Common
Council last April, but was amended in Se
lect to include nlot in the Thirty-second ward
and referred to the committee, who referred
it to a sub-committee. The latter reported
yesterday in favor ot making it three lots,
one each in the Thirty-first, Thirty-second
and Thirty-fifth wards.
The committee received the sub-committee's
report and approved it, bnt upon being
informed by the city clerk that unless the
interested parties were willing to pay the
$33 necessary for printing a new ordinance
it could not be passed upon by Councils un
til next year, as the appropriation for print
ing was exhausted. Mr. Paul demurred
when the motion was made to recommend
the original ordinance, which had already
been printed, but the motion was finally
The shortage of the printing appropria
tion was discussed by the committee, and it
is probable that an effort will be made at
the Council meeting Monday to have some
money turned oyer from another source into
the printing appropriation.
