There has not been in many years a larjrer
funeral about 'Western Pennsylvania than
that of the late Captain W. R. Jones at
Braddock yesterday. The horror caused by
the accident which injured Captain Jones,
vras all mellowed by the general sadness
yesterday. It was a remarkable public
The remains of the late Captain "William
31. Jones, General Manager of the Edgar
Thomson Steel "Works at Braddocb, were
laid in their temporary resting place, in the
Mills vault, Monongahela Cemetery, yes
terday afternoon. Representative steel and
iron men from various parts of the country,
and many relatives and old friends, were
present to pay a last tribute of respect to
the deceased. There were Gl carriages and
9 single horse conveyances in the procession
to the cemetery, while fully 5,000 work
men from the Braddock, Homestead and
Union iron and steel mills took part in the
funeral cortege. It was the largest funeral
ever witnessed in this section ofthe conn try,
and the proceedings partook more of the na
ture of a tribute of respect to some well
esteemed public dignitary than the obsequies
of a private individual. The shops in the
town were closed, many of them bearing
cards indicating the reason, and the library
and other public buildings were draped in
mourning. All the steel works were shut
down, with the exception of the furnaces,
and all the men but those necessarily em
ployed, turned ont in a body to march in
AT THE HOUSE.
At 1250 o'clock the employes of the
steel works, wearing monrning emblems
and white gloves, beaded by the marshals,
Messrs. M. Killen and John Hutchinson,
drew uy in columns on Main street, await
ing the arrival of the G. A. E. Posts,
which, headed by the Braddock Fife and
Drum Corps, at 150 o'clock, debouched
upon Main street and took up positions at
the head of the column, and the word to
march given. The fi.e corps bore black
badges on their breasts, and the fifes thrust
within tne tunic bore evidence of the sor
rowful errand of the day.
At the house a detail" from G. A. Post 8
formed a guard ot honor. Here numerous
relatives and friends were assembled, scat
tered about the prettily kept grounds and in
the parlors. Shortly before 2 o'clock the
head ofthe column of employes arrived at,
and forming in double file passed up
through the entrance to view the remains,
which were enclosed in an elaborate casket
completely enveloped in crepe and black
silken drapings. Followins the 2,000 em
ployes were representatives of the Loyal
Legion, the Scandnavian Society, the
Heilman Lodge and Braddock Lodge of F.
& A. M., the Monongahela Council, No. 299,
Jr. O. U. A. M., G. A. Post. 59 McKees
port, 548 "Wilkinsburg, 3 Pittsburg,
191 Turtle Creek and 30 Johnstown.
Then a number of citizens were allowed
to pass through, and at 250 the gate was
closed to admit of the funeral services
being proceeded with.
"Up to this time it was computed that more
than 4,000 persons bad entered to view the
remains. The casket had been placed in the
parlor, and it was almost completely hidden
irom view by the wealth of floral emblems
which rose eight and 10 feet above the floor.
WONDERFUL rXOBA.Ii TRIBUTES.
Thousands of roses, lilies of the valley,
carnations and other flowers were used,
hundreds of feet of smilax were used, and a
large quantity of fern employed in makinz
tne designs, wnicn were very artistic Tne
workmen of different departments of the
Braddock works contributed three elaborate
and fancifnl emblems representing the
"Flame of Life," "The Monument," and
"The Flight of the Soul." The first named
is represented bv a floral piece ten feet high.
A scroll of ivy, edged with a double bor
der of yellow roses, rests on an easel, form
ing a background to a brawny arm which,
wrought in pale pink carnations, stands out
in relief, holding aloft a torch of crimson
carnations, from which life's flame, repre
sented by tiny theaves of wheat, flares.
The second piece, "The Flight of the
Soul," is eight feet in height. At the base
the earth is represented by a great broad
plateau of palms, ferns and mosses, amid
which a pair off tongs and a broken rail,
fashioned of white carnations, lay Above
is a dove and still above are the heavens,
represented by a crescent and star formed of
pink, white and yellow roses. The crescent
in diameter is almost four feet, and hun
dreds of roses are required in its formation.
The third piece, "The Monument," repre
sents a shaft eight feet in height rising
from a mound ot croton, maiden hair fern,
colias and smilax. The shaft itself is of
pure white carnations, roses and dahlias.
-One design showed three soldiers' muskets
of standard size stacked to form a triangle.
From the center of these, which are fasn
ioned ofwhite roses, was suspended a camp
kettle made of different colored flowers. The
whole rests on a triangular base of yellow,
pink, white and red roses.
Among the others were an army badge
containing the inscription, "Our Comrade,"
a large plateau of Le France roses from the
Americus Club, a plateau of La France
roses and andianthem ferns from the Home
Shortly belore 3 o'clock Rev. Dr. T. N.
Boyle, ot the M. E. Church, accompanied
by the Bev. E. Earle, of Catasauqna,
and the Bev. Father Hickey, of the
Braddock Catholic Chnrch, entered the
liall. Dr. Boyle said that the services would
be brief and "then called upon Eev. Mr.
Earle to read an appropriate lesson, after
which Dr. Boyle offered a prayer for the de
ceased, for the bereaved widow and father
less children, and the men who had so long
been associated with him. The Eev. Dector
then delivered an eloquent enlogy on the
late general manager. He said, among other
He, like all others.had his faults. Ho bad an
impe'ruous nature, was easily aroused and un
der the excitement of the 'moment he swept
down npon everything in his way with the
velocity of a tornado. But tbe sky soon cleared
up and there eh own forth with brilliant hues
the sparkling rajs of a generous nature that
proclaimed he was uimsell again. Indeed it
was bis considerate kindliness that so quickly
redeemed him from all thought of violence
and uncovered to view a tenderness that
prompted all classes to recognize in him a
brother. He was a patriot, lie was chival
rous. He was a progressive citizen. In every.
thing that tended to advance tbe interests of
the community, he was an Important factor.
Tbe schools, the library and tbe churches did
not appeal to him in vain for substantial help.
He exercised rare judgment as to what should
be done in tbe way or public improremcnts,and
was alnays willing to share the responsibility
of making them.
Ho was a successful manager. The employer
and employe are here to-day to clasp bands over
bis casket and testify to his worth. He jealous
ly watcbed orer tbe Interests of tbe company,
and, with ajbrother's heart, exercised his au
thority and energy so as to promote the welfare
of tbe men. When the fatal stroke came he
shared it with one of thohumblestsubordinates
in tbe mill, and when he was dying in the bos
pital the great "steel king," as be looked upon
him, broke down with grief. May tbe sad
events of the past week cement the bonds by
which tbe capitalists of this firm and tbe men
In their employ are related to each other.
He was a devoted friend. One to whom yon
could go without any fear of betrayal. There
are mourners here to-day who were boys with
him. Tbe distance they came and tbe expres

with Captain Jones, and paid a glowing
tribute to his memory. The casket was now

GRAND JURY MATTERS.
Yesterday Was Lively for Jurymen In Bev
When the returns of the grand jury were
made to court yesterday a communication was
handed to Judge White asking for a return of
tbe bill found against John Prince a week ago.
Jndge White said that he would have to refuse
tbe request, as the bill was f onnd a week ago
and no reasons for its return were given. H.
H. Phillips, foreman of the grand jury, said
that there had been a misunderstanding about
tbe vote on the bill, but His Honor declined to
return the bill unless the request was signed
by a majority of the grand jnry.
Mr. Phillips at this point called tbe attention
of the court to the fact that the attendance of
the grand jury is so small that it is almost im
possible to get a quorum together. Thoso
present then, be said, were always in attend
ance, and be would like tbe Court to reserve his
remarks until to-morrow.
Judge White replied that It was the duty of
the grand jurors to attend and he would sea
that they do attend, and wonld tell them their
duties when court assembles in the morning.
He then directed the clerk to note wHo were
absent and said that they would receive no

In the suit of Thomas A. Ingram against
Moses and Richard Walsh a verdict was given,
yesterday, for tbe plaintiff. The case was an
ejectment suit for ground in Crafton. Tbe
controversy arose m regard to the marks di
viding the lands of tbe two parties. In 1794 a
white oak and a black oak tree were two of tbe
marks dividing tbe two sections of land. In
the course of time tbe trees decayed and fell,
and were replaced as marks by stones. Tbe
stones, it was claimed, had beea- moved, or
shifted their position, and a dispute arose as to
tne line, resulting in a verdict for Ingram.

VICTORY FOR THE L. & 0. ELEMENT.
A Queer Story About tlie Signing of Eev.
Father Brennan's Will.
IT WAS EEJECTED BT THE EEGISTEE.
Judge White sustained Alderman Brin
ker's appeal from a fine imposed upon him
for receiving Law and Order suits on the
Sabbath. The other court news is all im
portant. Judge "White yesterday handed down an
opinion in the case of tne appeal of Alder
man Brinkcr from the decision of Alderman
McNulty, who fined him $25 and costs for
engaging in worldly employment on Sunday.
The "employment" consisted of taking an in
formation brought by Captain Wishart against
John A. Martin, on Sunday, August 1L Jndge
White decides the case in favor of Alderman
Brinkcr. in his opinion Judge White says:
The evidence heard in court and not contro
verted was that some, If not all, of tho parties
thus acensed, had been In the habit orcarrylng on
their worldly employment on the Sabbath, and to
evade the penalty ot the law nad connived with
a constable to make Informations against them
early Monday mornlnit before a certain Alderman,
who speedily disposed of the case by entering
judgment for the defendant, thus making a Judi
cial record or acquittal. The defendant testified
that the objecto? taking the Information In this
case was to prevent 6uch a palpable Judicial mce
and bring the offenders to Justice. Under these
circumstances, and with that motive, even 11 the
defendant was mistaken as to bis rights ana
duties, be cannot Justly be charged with pursuing
his worldly employment on Sunday. A Justice or
the Peace, or Alderman, who keeps his office open
on bunday and transacts ordinary business may
very properly be charged with a violation or the
Sunday laws, but that is not this case.
Continuing Judge White said that this case
was an illustration of the careless if not reck
less manner in which some magistrates make
up their record. The record, he said, showed
that the defendant pleaded not guilty, but
afterward refused to call witnesses and public
Jy admitted the charge made against mm. ue
was charged with engaging in worldly employ
ment on Bunday, which he specifically denied,
but admitted taking the information on Sun
day, which be held was not a violation ot tha
law. In conclusion judgment was ordered to
be entered in favor of Alderman Brinker.
John A. Martin yesterday appeared at the
Sheriff's office and paid the amount of tne
special execution issued against him for the
fine and costs in ono of the appealed cases de
cided against him by the Court. A second exe
cution was immediately issued against Martin
at the instance of Attorney Yost for the fine
and costs In another case of a similar kind.
A PRIESTS WILL.
Rev. Father Brennan's Bequests Rejected
by the Register.
Register Conner yesterday refused to admit
to probate the will of the late Bev. Father Ed
ward Brennan,- of Mansfield. The will, which
is a short one, was filed a few days go. It leaves
Father Brennan's estate, worth about 1.000, to
tbe Rev. Father James Keenoy, pastor of the
Crafton Roman Catholic Church. The will was
witnessed by tho Rev. Father James Fleck-
ineer and Patrick HammiL After the will
had been filed Father Fleckinger, at the Regis
ter's office, swore to witnessing the execution
of the will, and that the signature was that of
Father Brennan, and that Father Bren
nan was of sound mind, etc., when be signed.
Tbe next day Patrick Hammil, the other
witness, called to be sworn to his signature. He
refused to swear to what Father Fleckinger
bad, and said that his wife bad signed the will.
Ho related that on September 8, when Father
Brennan was on his deathbed, Father Fleck
inger wrote ont the wilL It was placed on a
book and a pen was handed to Father Brennan
to sign the will with. He said it was all right,
and was about to do so, when he fainted.
Father Fleckinger then called Mrs. Hammil
and told her to sign the will for Father Bren
nan. She did so, signing the name "E. Bren
nan." Father Brennan afterward recovered,
but was too weak to bave signed bis name. He
was told that Mrs. Hammil had signed it for
The Register, upon this, held tbe will over.
Father Fleckinger afterward appeared and said
that what Hammil said was true. He said that
he was nndor the impression when he swore to
the signature that it was a valid and lawful
signature, out that when be swore to It he erred
in not relating the circumstances.
Register Conner took the evidence in due
form, and yesterday gave his decision refusing
to admit the will to probate. He held that it
bad not been properly executed according to
law. Had Father Brennan authorized Mrs.
Hammil to sign the will for him, or afterward
approved of her signing it, the signature might
bave stood, but there was no evidence that Such
was tbe case.
Fatber Brennan leaves a mother, brother and
sister, but thev have not appeared or put in any
claim for tbe estate. If the Register is sustained
the estate will go to them.
A Qncmlon ofConstltutlonnllty.
A supplemental bill was filed yesterday by
the Howard heirs in the suit against the city of
Pittsburg relative to the widening of Diamond
alley. Tbe supplementary bill contains ad
ditional reasons set forth to show that the
street act of May 15, 1SS9, is unconstitutional.
They claim that tbe title of tbe bill passed is
defective; that tbe provision for the assessing
of benefits is unconstitutional, and that other
sections of the act are violations of the State
Constitution. The case will be argued to-day.
Controller Morrow and Chief Bigelow say the
allegations are old, and they are anxious to see
J. O. Slemmons Fined.
In tbe Criminal Court yesterday John O.
Slemmons, tbe wholesale jeweler who was In
dicted for aggravated assault and battery for
shooting some newsboys who tormented him
with an air gun, pleaded guilty. Judge White
ordered him to pay a fine of 25 and tbe costs
of the case. ,
