THE -PITTSBUBG? DISPATCH,-- SATURDAY- SEETEMBEP8W8
ft RECIPROCAL BOOM,
The Chamber of Commerce
Will GiYe a Reception
TO PAtf-AMEBICAN PEOPLE.
Chairman Kelly Speaks of Pittsburg's
SOME AVAILABLE SUGGESTIONS.
The City Should Defray Expenses as a
A SCHEME FOE A HANDSOME S0UYEN1R
Pittsburg's opportunity to spread herself,
noi only before the nation, but the distin
guished embassadors of Sooth American
powers, who will come here next month, and
in whose wake a stream of local products
will flow to points below the equator, with
a golden return-current, is unquestionably
appreciated by the city's business men, as
indicated by the meeting at the Chamber of
Commerce yesterday afternoon. From pres
ent appearances the Pan-American dele
gates will get a rousing reception in this
city, and be afforded ample opportunity to
comprehend Pittsburg's immense capacities
in the line of unlimited reciprocity in trade.
When Mr. George A. Kelly, Vice Presi
dent of the Chamber of Commerce, acting
in the place of President Schmertz, called
the meeting to order the room was comfort
ably filled with many of the city's business
and professional men. Those present were:
George A. Kelly. Congressman Dalrell, Cap
tain John A. Wood, Calvin Wells, A. M. Mar
shall. Captain John F. Draro, Robert Pitcairn,
Dr. Jaires Allison, Mr. G. W. Morris, D. C.
Herbst. H. H. Brram, D. C. Ripley. John Bind
lev, S. L. McHenrv, S. B. Harbison. John H.
Ricketson. James B. Scott, A. F. Keating. W.
P. Dcarmett, George Dilworth, Renben Miller,
Morion Hall. Dr. Anderson, of Finlayville;
Colonel R. Monroe, Captain C. W. Batchellor.
H. P. Ford, Mavor William McCallin. A. M.
Byers. W. A. Magee, E. M. Watt, Charles
Meyran, George H. Anderson, Mayor R. T.
Pearson, and others.
During the discussion incidental to the
first and, as it proved, the only business of
the meeting the appointment of the com
mittees Mr. Charles Meyran, President of
the Germania Bank, made the following ex
cellent suggestion to the General Commit
tee, and it will be acted upon without doubt.
He embodied his remarks in the following
communication to The Dispatch:
MB. MEYEAlf'S TLANS.
In connection with the visit of the 75 repre
sentatives from the South America States, I
desire to make a suggestion which, if agree
able to tbe members of the committee of the
Chamber, would, aside from tbe courtesy and
hospitality which we contemplate bestowing
upon these gentlemen in showing them tbe at
tractive portions of onr city and its vast indus
tries, leave an impression and a remembrance
of us that would be admirable in a commercial
point of view; to have them take with them
souvenirs as a reminder of Pittsburc during
the years to come. In their visit throughout
the United States they will see all the novel,
new and interesting, subjects most prominent
in every city in the Union. Every city will vie
with us in making an impression upon these
gentlemen by their various industries, and
necessarily many among such a vast variety or
things will be forgotten.
That our city may not be lost sight of
upon their return to their respective countries,
but, on the contrary, impress itself noon their
minds. I suggest that a sonvenir in the form of
a beautiful and artistic album decorated with
photographic and engraved views of the
leading industries of this city, inter
spersed with brief historic remarks, and
matters pertaining thereto to be printed in the
language of their country (Spanish). The
album could be presented to each visitor with
proper remarks, addressed personally, with the
individual name of each commissioner printed
thereon as i token or souvenir in remembrance
of their visit and reception by the citizens of
Pittsburg as represented in the Chamber of
Commerce. Matters in connection with the
preparation of tbe souvenir should be attended
to by a sub-committee, and the item of expense
should be the last consideration.
MAST THINGS TO MENTION.
There are necessarily many things in and
about Pittsburg which cannot be shown on ac
count of lack of time, but which are well
worthy of extended mention in snch a volume.
We should strive to excel every other city in
the Union by our display of resources, and it
seems to me that this idea is worthy of adop
tion as a part of onr effort to make a luting
impression upon such a body of representative
men. Tbe personal element in such a plan has
something to recommend it Each delegate
would feel a pride in showing such a sonvenir
to his friends aud his Government.
In calling the meeting to order Mr. Kelly
said: "The object of this meeting is to
formulate a suitable programme for the
adequate entertainment of the Pan-American
delegates to the International Congress
during their stay in Pittsburg, They come
here for the purpose of comparing our in
dustries with those of other countries, and
Pittsburg owes it to herself to see that any
snch comparison is in our favor. "We must
show these visitors the vastness of our manu
facturing industries, and it is to be hoped
that our citizens will awake to the important
bearing the establishment and cultivation
of trade relations with onr sister Republics
and principalities will have upon our own
f nture. "We must make our exhibit so com
prehensive that their stay here will be at
once fascinating and instructive."
Mr. Kelly then read a newspaper clipping
in which the point brought out was that
Pittsburg and Philadelphia had been re
served as the last points to be visited by the
delegates in deference to their acknowledged
supremacy in the manufacturing world
implying a great compliment to Pennsyl
vania. Continuing, he said:
ADVOCATING MEECHANT JIAEINE.
These men come to the United States,
chargedwithtbedutyof reporting accurately
to their respective Governments, and the status
of Pittsburg should be presented in the plainest
manner. It is surprising that with its immense
resources Pittsburg has taken so few steps to
ward bringing itself into prominence. Tbe
next Congress will assuredly take action look
ing to tbe re-establishment of a merchant
marine, ana tne institution of fast mails by
which business can be afforded for the first
time an adequate channel throneh which to
flow. American products in American bot
toms win mean millions annually to this coun
ter, and Pittsbnrg mnst secure a share. She
may secure a lion's share. I will now ask for
an expression 01 opinion in regara.to tne best
course to take as a preparation for tbe Impend
ing visit. Mr. Dalzeli, will you give us some of
Congressman Dalzeli said: "I cannot add
any expression to what has been said as to
the importance of this meeting. I bad an
interview recently with Mr. "W. E. Curtis,
the Department of State representative, in
which he emphasized the importance of an
immediate preparation of Pittsburg's pro
gramme. He stated that he was urging
upon every city the wisdom of presenting to
view the principal local industries, and he
suggested that natural gas would prove of
very live interest, as it could not be seen
elsewhere. Pittsburg has characteristics
not to be seen in other cities, and I think
that the programme should be framed with
a view to putting the best forward. I would
suggest that a visit to the Tarentnm glass
works would be of interest."
Mr. George H. Anderson then arose and
read the most recent communication from
Mr. "W. E. Curtis. It was as follows:
CURTIS WEITES AGAIN,
Department of State,
Mr. Georse H. Anderson, OS Sixth avenue, Pitts
Deab Sin According to tlio revised pro
gramme, the excursion tendered the foreign
delegates Mtbo International American Con-
fress, will come from Cincinnati to Pittsburg
v daylight, stopping off an hour and a half at
"Washington to seethe gas works (ic), and
reaching Plttsbnrg at 830 P. M., Wednesday,
November 6. We will be glad to have your
Committee of Reception meet us at Washing
ton at 6 p. JU and accompany ns to Pittsburg.
We shall remain at Pittsburg over Thursday
and Friday, and leave there at 720 Saturday
morning forAltoona. Will you kindly have
tbe best possible hotel accommodations en
gaged for 60 persons, and notify me at your
earliest convenience of the programme ar
ranged for the entertainment of the party.
I have the honor to be your obedient servant,
W. E. CUKT1S.
Special Agent Department of State.
Mr. Ricketson I would suggest that the
President be requested to appoint necessary
committees npon the various heads to be cov
ered in the proposed visit. I am aware that
there is a Congressional appropriation to pay
their expenses on the grand rounds, but I
wonld suggest that it would be a graceful thing
to step in and make their visit to Pittsburg
Mr. Dalzeli I concur with Congressman
Bavne's expression of opinion that Pittsburg
should make it a genuine entertainment of tbe
Mr. Ricketson We would, of course, furnish
cigars, railroad transportation, etc., in any case,
and we might as well make it a thorough thing.
Mr. A. M. Byers May I inquire what will be
come nf the Congressional appropriation in
such an event?
Mr. Dalsell It will go to swell the surplus.
TLaugbter. We won't get it.
Mr. Ricketson made a formal motion that the
chairman designate committees and appoint
members of the General Committee ot the
Chamber of Commerce to serve thereupon, and
Mr. H. H. Byram seconded the motion which
Mr. Charles Meyran I would suggest that
the programme be arranged by the General
Mr. Robert Pitcairn 1 am afraid we shall
strike a snag in this matter. We have so much
to show and only two days to devote to exhibi
tion. We may leave out some things which
should be included, and the arrangement is a
delicate matter. After the places to be seen
are decided upon, a committee on railroads
mnst co-operate to ascertain whether the places
can be reached or not. So far as a visit to a
gas field is concerned, Mr. Curtis' idea is
simply idiotic What these practical men will
want to see is how natural gas is applied to our
manufactures. The arrangement of the pro
gramme is a delicate matter and must be care
Captain Dravo I move Mr. Pitcairn's- ap
pointment upon the Committee on Programme
and also the appointment of a representative
of tbe B. & O.
PITCAIBN WAS MODEST.
Mr. Pitcairn That is not my idea.
Captain Dravo No, but it's mine. Laugh
ter. Mr. Pitcalm is a railroad man and can
tell us how to map out the trip around and
throngh the citv.
Mr. George H. Anderson There are diffi
culties to be overcome, but there need be no
trouble in the matter. The committee must
embrace this rare opportunity and everything
must be done in the best manner, but the com
mittee can do all that Is to be done. We needn't
Mr. Bindley I think that the programme
will require rare discretion in its preparation.
The magnitude of onr manufactures and the
impossibility of bringing forward their variety
leads me to suggest that a display of class ex
hibits be gathered together at the Exposition
building, where they could be easily shown in
more compact form than anywhere in the two
Mr. Pitcairn moved that a committee of
three be appointed to assist tbe Chairman
in the designation of committee's under
Mr. Ricketson' motion. Mr. A. M. Byers
suggested that Mr. Kelly would do as well
by gathering around him a few gentlemen
to advise him, and said that extreme haste
would be prejudicial, and that Mr. Kelly
ought to have time enough to move delib
erately. Mr. Pitcairn withdrew his resolu
tion. Mr. Ricketson I cannot understand Mr.
Curtis' baste in this matter. He may be as
sured that we will make the best arrangement
of a programme possible, and as quickly as
comports with due preparation. The commis
sioners do not need to be told a month in ad
vance what we are going to do. When we're
invited to an entertainment we do not ask the
host what he intends doing for our amuse
ment. Mr. Miller suggested an adjournment,
and Mr. "Watt said he thought that the
programme should be prepared in accord
ance with Mr. Curtis' desire.
Mr. Pitcairn-We'U tell Mr. Curtis that the
industries of Pittsburg are so vast that they
couldn't be seen in a month, and that we are
at some trouble to compress the exhibit to the
caliber of a two-days' view.
ME. KELLY ASKS FOE TIME.
Mr. George A Kelly I may say that I would
not undertake to appoint these important com
mittees npon the spur of the moment. I must
have time to complete this task.
Before he left the chamber Mr. Kelly
completed the person nelot the Committee on
Programme, the most important committee
in the list. The members are as follows:
Chairman, James B. Scott: Calvin Wells, H.
H. Byram, H. W. Oliver, D. C. Ripley, Colonel
J. M. Schoonmaker aud M. K. Moorhead.
Mr. Kelly announced the following chair
men of committees:
H. C. Frick, on Finance: Captain C. W.
Batchellor, on Entertainment and Arrange
ments: Robert Pitcairn, on Transportation, and
John H. Ricketson, on Reception.
Secretary Follansbee, of the Chamber of
Commerce, has received notice from Mr.
Curtis to telegraph tbe local programme to

How a Speak-Ensy Spy Got an East Ender
N. E. Bird, a colored baker of Fifth
avenue, was fined $25 and costs ou a charge
of disorderly conduct, and held over for
court last night by Alderman Doughty.
Bird swore before Alderman Hyndman a
lew days ago that he had bought and -paid
for beer at James Fleming's boarding house
on Frankstown avenue last Sunday. On
the strength of this evidence Fleming was
fined $100, and fire boarders living in the
house $8 each.
Last night it was shown that Bird had
demanded beer at Fleming's house and had
been lefused by Fleming, who said he did
not sell beer. Bird became disorderly and
had to be ejected from the house. Last night
Bird swore that be had never bought a
drink at Fleming's house in his life, and
kept to that statement in spite of all former
evidence. The result was that he was held
oyer for court on a charge of perjury, and
fined $25 ior disorderly conduct.

GREAT 8AYING OP TIME CLAIMED.,

EABTEBN "WINDOW TK0UBLE8 EHDED
Asa G. Neville, of Lazearville, W. Va.,
ex-President of Local Union No. 85, of the
American Jf 1 int Glass "Workers' Association,
was in the city yesterday. Mr. Neville is
the patentee of a new glass melting pot,
which he claims will revolutionize the flint
The pots are about the same siie as those
used at present in the different glass fac
tories. It differs from the others in the
method of heating and cooling the glass ior
working. The inventor claims that he can
heat a new melt in one-halt the time re-
I quired in the old pots. After the glass has
been heated, ne says, it can oe cooieu ou ior
working in 20 minutes.
The pot can be heated with coal as well
as with natural gas. The flame enters into
the pot from the top and is mixed with hot
air, the pot having but one flue. The flame
coming in at the top is drawn out at the
front. After the glass is melted the cap is
put on the top, and the same fine used to cool
the glass for working.
The Phcenix Glass Company, of this city,
tried the pot at their Phillipsburg house,
and met with such great success that they
have decided to replace all their old pots
with new ones. They claim it will make a
great change in the business, on account of"
tbe time saved. The uanton mass com
pany tried the pot with coal and was pleased
with the result.
In speaking of his invention yesterday,
Mr. Neville said: "If the tank system is
perfected to such a fine point that flint
glass can be made successfully the new clay
pot will counteract it, and small manufact
urers can compete with the tank owners. By
using the new pot glass can be melted in ten
hours and cooled off in 20 minutes. With
the present pot, manufacturers claim that if
the flame touches the glass it will turn
green. This is not the case with the new pot,
as three manufacturers have testified. At a
low estimate the new pot will enable a sav
ing of from ?10,000 to 812,000 per year on a

having entered the business when he was 9
years of age.

Quite n Thrilling Episode In a Fifth Avenue
Barber Shop Yesterday.
A thrilling scene occurred yesterday
afternoon in the barber shop ot William
Petsinger, at the corner of Fifth avenue and
Wood street No customers were in the
shop when a seedy-looking stranger entered.
He looked as if he had been on a spree for
two weeks. His face was covered by a
rough growth ot hair at least a week old.
His eyes were red and puffed, and his hands
trembled. He asked tbe proprietor for a
razor, saying that he wished to share him
self. It was evident that he needed a shave,
and a razor was given to him.
Then the boss barber bad business outside
of the shop, and he was quickly followed by
one of the two other barbers. One ot the
men had sufficient courage to remain in the
shop. He considered it his business to
watch the man and try to prevent a suicide,
.if one were attempted. He retreated to a
chair in a corner and pretended to read a
newspaper. The stranger approached a
mirror. He opened the razor and carefully
felt its edge with his thumb, to see if it were
keen. He then looked Inrtively about the
shop, to see if any person were watching
him. Being satisfied that he was unob
served, without another word or any sign of
warning, he shaved himself, laid down a
dime and went out.
Don't Like the Order,
The congregation of St. Stephen's Church,
in the Twenty-third ward, are said to be
considerably exercised over Cardinal Gib
bon's order that all Catholic children be
sent to the parochial schools. They claim
the expense ot these schools is too heavy.
Superintendent Luckey has noticed a fall
ing off in the attendance at public schools
since the issue of tbe order.
Agent O'Brien made an information be
fore Alderman vMcMasters on Thursday
evening against Abel(Winters and Gottlieb
Dellenbacb, charging them with cruelty to
animals, in not providing yonng calves in
their possession with proper food. Simon
Miller, a Hebrew grocer of 445 Fifth ave
nue, is to be charged with cruelty to his
horse. Agent O'Brien has ordered the ani
mal to be killed.
A New Catholic Cemetery.
The congregation of St. Joseph's German
Catholic church, of ML Oliver, has pur
chased a piece of land on 'the Brownsville
road, to be used as a cemetery. The land
comprises 21 acres, and the price paid to the
owner, B. I. Noble, was $10,000.

SELLING A CHURCH.
St. Patrick's Congregation Bnjlng the
Fourlb V. P. Church An Old Mortgage
Clondipc tbe Title.
In the near future the Fourth United
Presbyterian Church, corner of Seventeenth
street and Penn avenue, will change.hands.
The congregation of St. Patrick's Bonian
Catholic Chnrch, situated at the rear of the
United Presbyterian Church, has bought it,
and are waiting until some legal business is
completed before they tear down the ugly
structure that has disfigured Penn avenue
in that neighborhood for so many years.
The Catbolics have paid a bonus on the
property of $ 100 to hold the place, for which
they agree to pay $19,700. After the legal
difficulty has been overcome, it is the inten
tion of St. Patrick's' people to erect a hand
some pile of buildings for a parochial school.
The sale can't be closed now because t.n old
mortgage, which has been illegallysatisfied,
clouds the title.
Some 26 years ago the present U. P. con
gregation bought the lot and, gave a mort
gage of J2.600 for part of the purchase
money. The property was bonght from
Boyle Irwin. Two years after the church
had bought the property the estate, which
covered considerable ground in that part of
city, reverted to the heirs of Judge Wallace.
About 22 years since the $2,600 was paid in
full to one of the Wallace heirs. After the
lapse of a few years it was discovered that
the lady to whom the mortgage money was
fiaid only had a claim on the interest accru
ng from the principal. Since that time
some of the Wallace heirs have died and
the others, after the property had
been sold to the Boman Catholics,
notified the St. Patrick's people
that the title was not clear. The U. P.
Church contested the matter in the courts,
and won their case. Tbe Wallace heirs
were allowed two years to appeal to the
Supreme Court This period has almost ex
pired, and it looks now as if the church will
be torn down and a parochial school built.
Kev. J. D. Turner, pastor of the Fourth
U. P. Church, in speaking about the mat
ter yesterday to a Dispatch reporter, said:
"This question has been agitating our
people for years. We have passed through
considerable 'anxiety in. disposing of our
property, but I believe we have reached the
end of the lane. Our next anxiety is to
erect a church in a central locality. We
have a membership of 450, who come from
long distances, some, of them from Alle
gheny, others live out the West Penn
road, but the great bulk live between
the forks of the road and Bloomfield.
We have definitely arranged to build
in Bloomfield. The church -we will
erect will not be elaborate. The architec
ture will be Romanesque, and it will be
neatly fitted up. No great attention will
be paid to internal embellishment I can
not say definitively whether we will have
an organ or not I rather think not, but
this remains for the congregation to decide.
The general tendency of our body opposes
anything of an ornate character. We se
lected Bloomfield because at present there
are 64 families who worship with us, at
Seventeenth street. There are also a num
ber of the United Presbyterians residing in
the vicinity who would join our church if
we built there.
ENLARaiNG THE BREWERIES.
Still Another One to be Improved in Spite
of Syndicate Offers.
Since the alleged English syndicate began
to dicker for the purchase of breweries, the
Pittsburg beer factories have somehow or
other been given an impetus in the way of
improvements. Those under way at Wain
wright's were noted recently, and the com
ment of the firm noted that "it didn't look
much like selling to any syndicate."-
And now a new brick building which Is
to be erected by the C. Baeuerlein Brewing
Company at Mill vale station will contain
about 300,000 bricks. The contract for that
number has been awarded to WittmerBros.,
of Wittmer station, Pittsbufg and Western
Railroad. The firm will begin to deliver
the bricks in a ahort time.

Mayor Pearson Will Veto the Electric
Flant Site Ordinance
AN IN-L0T HOLDER G0IHG.T0 COURT
Citizen's Object to Encroaching on tbe
A PLAH TOIEEMOVE THE HAIMAEKEr
Mayor B. T. Pearson, of Allegheny, was
seen last evening and stated that the oppo
sition to .the usurpation of park land for an
electric light plant was steadily growing.
In detail Mayor Pearson's remarks were as
"The property, which to my surprise Mri
Elphinstone says the city has a right to
take, is the old Armory building site at the
foot of Monument Hill. The building is
occupied by the Cuff Manufacturing Com
pany, who pay a rental of $500 per annum.
The committee in charge ot the matter
offered to find a new location for the com
pany and pay the expense of a removal, be
cause their lease runs till a year from
next April. The Duff Company wanted an
exorbitant sum, however, and the committee
cast its eye upon the little patch of park
now occupied by the Ft. Wayne railroad
signal tower. The railroad are tenants at
will, bnt have no legal right to the ground.
Yes, it is large enough' for an electric plant
building. Bnt I am opposed to such an en
croachment upon park property. It would
set a very bad precedent, and would pave
the way for further usurpations. I find the
people of Allegheny very much opposed to
THE IN-LOT HOLDERS.
"Mr. J. S. Brown and Major McCandless
visited me in regard to the matter this
morning. Major McCandless is an adjacent
property holder and objects to tbe location
of tne electric plant in his neighborhood.
Mr. Brown is one of the four surviving "in
lot holders," another of "whom is Mr. Eob
ert McGunnigle. By' the earliest laws
framed in regard to the creation of the
parks the in-lot holders were the citizens
who had above all others to be considered
in matters relating to tbe parks. Mr.
Brown objects very vigorously to the pro
posed plan and sUtes that "he will carry
his opposition to the courts in case Councils
pass the ordinance directed to be framed by
the Park Committee at its last meeting. I
hardly think, however, that Councils will
pass the ordinance, and if they do I shall
certainly veto it, lor r feel that the principle
is all wrong."
Mayor Pearson has long cherished a de
sire to redeem Diamond Square from its
bucolic appearance. He said last night:
"A petition is being circulated for the re
movil of the hay market from Diamond
Square. The market depreciates the ap
pearance of our city and makes it appear as
if we were a village instead of a budding
metropolis. I would like to s ee the square
CLEARED OFF ENTIRELY
and tnrned over to Superintendent Hamil
ton, of the parks, for improvement Walks
could be put down and some public spirited
citizen might be induced to donate a hand
some fountain for the center of the square.
It would be a vast improvement and should
be made without delay.
"Another reason for this change is in the
manner in which it is proposed to beautify
the surroundings ot the Carnegie Free
Library. ' Mr. James B. Scott, Chairman of
the Carnegie Commission, paid me a visit a
few days ago to consult as to the expediency
of surrounding the library and music hall
buildings with a fence. While he did not
favor the fence, he stated that he feared that
an organized array of loafers might congre
gate upon the steps and around the build
ings. I promised him that loafers wonld be
made to move 6n, I believe that it is now
the intention to use all the available space
around the buildings as a miniature park.
This will be an incentive to the city in
making Diamond Sqnare to correspond in
EEAD1 FOE THE DOSE.
The Lincoln School Board Expect to be
Judge White will in all probability settle
the Lincoln school muddle to-day, as
the directors have failed to reach any agree
ment among themselves. Mr. McLaughlin,
one of tbe board, said last night:
"Most of the newspapers have done ns a
great injustice by insisting that the whole
contest was a mere religious controversy.
Nothing could be farther from the truth.
Besides it is not true that the three men
voting against Miss Gardner were American
Mechanics, as I'm the only Mechanic on the
board, and my opposition to Miss Gardner
did not spring from religious grounds at all.
"""None of us deny that Miss Gardner is a
good writer, but she is an incompetent
teacher, as she Frightened her pupils too
much. She did not beat or hammer them
over the heads, but the woman who ridi
cules a child, calls her a 'ool or a block
head, and turn away from her in disgust in
stead of endeavoring to correct her, is not
fit to teach any set of children. For some
time past I have been compelled to send
my little girl to school bv force, and the in
variably went to the writing class crying. I
don't propose to vote for any teacher who
canses anything like this.
"Furthermore, while we have been will
ing to elect any competent teacher the
others have refused to accept a compromise,
and on three different occasions voted
against ladies of well-known ability. The
Court will probably fire us all to-morrow,
bnt the election next February will show
how the sentiment of the people runs."
Mr. Candy, another member of tbe board,
was standing by, and vigorously corroborat
ed this statement.
A New Cook Book.
A compact and useful cook book, con
taining many excellent recipes for practical
and economical cookery, and embellished
with a handsome cover, has been mailed
direct fiom Europe to every householder in
Pittsburg by the Liebig's Extract of Meat
Company. " Their idea has been to place
these valuable books in the homes ot all the
principal cities of the United States, which,
as can readily be imagined, has involved an
immense outlay on the part of tbe company.
If any householder has failed to receive one,
it will be rent post free and gratis on re
