PITTSBURG. TUESDAY. OCT. 22. ISS9.
TEEAT ALL ALIKE.
The ordinance introduced into Councils
last evening looting toward taking down
the overhead electric wires of the Pleasant
Valley Railway is so manifestly aimed at a
single corporation, and goes so lar in the di
rection of making fletb. of some electric
companies and fowl of another, that we do
not think Councils can afford to pass it in
its present shape. The only way to rid the
streets of the overhead wires is to treat all
There is probably little room for donbt
that the electric railway's structures add
something to the danger, and a great deal
to the obstruction, of onr streets, from the
overhead wire nuisance. The Dispatcii
has clearly and consistently urged that til
such wires be put underground; and
an ordinance lor that purpose will
receive its hearty support But the
passenger railway company is not the only,
or the chief offender in this respect. Arc
light wires are strung all over the city. A
net work of telegraph and telephone wires
obstruct the streets; and immense masts dis
figure the city. As regards tension the rail
way's wires are no more dangerous than
those of the light companies, while as re
gards obstruction and disfigurement their
iron poles are superior to the ugly masts
which other corporations have planted ev
erywhere. If the ordinance should provide that all
electric wires must go underground, the
Pleasant Valley company wijl have no
ground for complaint Or, if Councils can
not go that length in facing the united cor
porations, let it make the ordinance refer to
all wires bearing an electric current exceed
ing two or three hundred volts. Such pro
visions will be just and impartial, but this
measure is not
To shut out this single company and leave
all the others untouched, is to permit the
danger to go practically unabated and to
subject the business in which the different
companies are engaged, to the grossest
THERE SHOULD BE BOOK EH0UGH.
The statement was published yesterday
that there is quite a rush for space in the
Industrial Exposition to be made on the
visit of the Pan-American delegates here,
and that some of the manufacturers who
had failed to make exhibits at the regular
exhibition just closed will find themselves
left on the outside at the coming show. It
is certainly to be hoped that this occasion
will impress on all Pittsburg firms the im
portance of making the regular Exposition
a full exponent of P'ttsburg industries; but
there is no apparent reason why the useful
ness of the coming exhibition should be re
stricted. There are two large buildings, one of
which will be entirely vacant bv the end of
the week. If the exhibit can be made to fill
the main building, as well as the machinery
building, it will be so much the better for
the exhibitors, for the Exposition and for
It is rather pleasant in these times when
the suspicion of scandal and frequently
so much more than suspicion is general
with regard to the leaders in politics both
cf this republic and of France, to read of
the testimony by an authority like Emile
Zola, to the irreproachability of President
Carnot. In an interview on French politics
he says of the President: "Xot a single mud
splash has reached his faultless overcoat."
This testimony is more convincing from
the nndoubted talent and disposition of
Zola, if there were any mud splashes, to de
tect and point them out The apostle of gutter
realism would not be likely to spare the
French President for the sake of convention
alities or out of respect to his high position.
When Zola says Carnot is immaculate we
can feci for the pang with which he bears
testimony to the fact; but we can also re
joice in the purity of the French President
as beyond question.
TEE SPECULATIVE SQUEEZE
The tumble in the Xew York stock mar
ket, yesterday, was nothing more than a
large-sized and significant demonstration of
the old proverb that "what goes up must
come down." Talk about tight money and
unfavorable conditions of business is heard
as giving the proximate causes; bnt the
tight money was simply due to the demand
for funds'to carry big speculations, and the
cut rates of a Western road would not break
the market if it had not been boosted on the
apparent presumption that everything was
going to be favorable for stocks, now and
forever. The decline is the inevitable and
legitimate result of speculative ballooning.
'The ballooning has not been very aggravated
and the decline will not, therefore, be very
severe. The largest degree of inflation has
been in the trust business, and the trust
certificates are, consequently, the leaders in
the tumble. Legitimate trade and industry
which have kept on a sonnd and conserva
tive basis, need not fear that they will be
drawn into these purely speculative com
plications. BEAE-LEADING DEMO CHATS.
The means which the Democrats at Hano
ver Court House, Va., adopted to silence
the campaign oratory of Julius CaJsar Bur
rows the other day was doubtless very
success ul; but somehow it fails to convince
the impartial hearer of tbe political superi
ority of the Virginia Democracy. lir.
Burrows commenced to address a meeting
at that place the other day; but some ardent
Democrats brought out a tame bear, which
climbed trees and otherwise performed
tricks so as to render it impossible for Mr.
Narrows to go on with his speech.
cessfal; but it is calculated to provoke a
number of reflections which are less com
plimentary to the Democrats than those en
thusiastic Jacksonians mighthave expected.
It must be conceded that the tame bear
method of breaking up Bepublican meet
ings is a much more genial and good humored
method than the regulation Southern
vayNof doing it with shotguns and
revolvers. In that light it
is to be recognized as an advance; but still it
leaves a great deal of room for improvement
However sophistical Mr. Burrow's argu
ments on the subjects of tariffs or the Vir
ginia debt may have been, it was hardly a
complete refutation of them to make a bear
climb a tree; and whatever attack on the
cherished institutions of the South may be
involved in the success of the party he sup-,
ports, we fail to see that their hcinousness is
exposed by making the bear get up on his
hind legs and growl.
In fact, however good the joke may seem
to ardent Democrats of tfaeursinestamp, per
haps intelligent people may think that the
joke is the other way, when Virginia Demo
crats themselves reduce their politics to the
level of bear-dancing.
THE TBUF. STAND.
The avowal and repetition by President
Roberts of the views credited to him in his
speech at the Pittsburg Club, last week,
leaves no room for doubt either as to the
fact of the speech or the declaration of the
President of the Pennsylvania Bailroad
that he is Opposed to pooling; that he be
lieves in competition, and that he recognizes
the right of Pittsburg with other trade cen
ters to competing roads.
"While tbe surprise of such a speech from
such a source naturally gave rise to some
doubts, it is pleasant to give full recogni
tion to Mr. Roberts' declarations, because
the principles which he states are funda
mentally and essentially correct It is
true that the legitimate interests of the
Pennsylvania Bailroad require no support
from pools or trusts. It is true that it need
not fear the destruction of its property by
competing lines. It would have been more
prosperous to day if it bad relused to be
dragooned into the railway combination
which built up the Standard Oil Company;
and every competing line, that comes into
"Western Pennsylvania at least, brings its
own recompense to the Pennsylvania Bail
road by the increased business resulting
from the property which they produce.
It is well that President Roberts has
recognized and declared these principles.
"We hope that he will not have to be re
minded of them when the business interests
of Pennsylvania next undertake to build a
legitimate railway through the State.
THE BEQULEEMEirr FOB TEADE.
One of our leading manufacturing firms
is quoted, with regard to South American
trade, as saying that, while they have never
shipped any goods there, they believe that
"the great difficulty in the way of this city
furnishing South American cities with
goods is the want of transportation."
That improved transportation would
doubtless be a great aid in increasing our
trade with South America, is true; but that
it alone will make trade is a great mistake.
Enough has been published on the subject
to show that our manufacturers must learn
what classes of goods th South Americans
need, and the form in which they wish them
shipped. "When we have learned what sort
of goods will command the trade of these
countries, the next question will be whether
we can furnish them as cheap, or more
cheaply, than England or Germany.
That the transportation question is not
the only, or indeed the chief one, involved,
is apparent from the fact that Pittsburg
products are already being shipped to those
countries. The vessels which bring coffee,
sugar and other products from Brazil can
and do take back certain Pittsburg products,
and will take back more when our manu
facturers study those markets for the pur
pose of supplying them.
Of course regular steamship lines will
greatly facilitate trade and should be pro
Tided. But it should be recognized that the
most important step in the development of
such trade, is the study of the wants and
capabilities of both continents, such as the
South Americans are now giving to our
THE AMERICAN TOWEB.
The plan for a tower to surpass in lofti
ness the Eiffel structure at Paris, and which
is intended to be a leading feature for the
Exposition at "Washington, forms an inter
esting item in to-day's Dispatch. A
structure 1,500 feet high, with an audi
torium seating 25,000 people at its base,
would possess attractions of its own that
would relieve it from the charge of being a
copy of M. Eiffel's work. Indeed, as The
Dispatch has pointed out heretofore, the
famous Parisian structure was only an en
largement of the tower at the Philadelphia
Centennial, as Mr. KinkePs structure would
be an enlargement on the latter. The prin
cipal objection to a Columbus tower like
this at Washington, would be that it would
overtop the monument to "Washington.
C0HN AND CUPID.
An ear of corn and Cupid are not ap
parently related. Poets have made much of
Cupid, and the beauties of a field of corn
in tassel have often been celebrated in Terse,
So much they have in common. Bat we
are more apt to associate corn with butter
and salt and pepper, than billing and coo
ing. Corn on the dinner table seems a good
deal more natural than on the altars of
Hymen. Yet Cupid and corn go together in
Kansas all the time. There corn brings
Cupid's victims to Hymen.
This year has been abundantly prosper
ous for Kansas. Her harvests have never
been so great The corn crop was the
largest on record; that of wheat was phe
nomenal also. Kansas is enjoying a
healthy boom upon the strength of an agri
cultural yield worth a hundred millions of
dollars. Cupid comes upon tbe heels of the
big corn crop, and he reaps among the
reapers. His arrows have flown among the
farmers who have found fatness in the fields.
Among the young people the matrimonial
movement has been most pronounced. There
were never so many marriages in Kansas
before. Xobody is bo poor that he cannot
take a wife. The cribs are full of corn now
and marriage feasts are making the whole
It is not corn that bnngs Pittsburg
her present prosperity, though it will help
her to keep it, but the same result of pros
perity may be seen here. There is a steady
demand for marriage licenses. Seventeen

ber is steadily increasing. The earth is
very fruitful and marriage seems to be a
very popular institution still.

The Cotton Oil Trust has concluded that
the trust business does, not work. Trusts
generally discover this fact when they are
nnable to freeze the other fellows out The
trust scheme worked for the benefit of the
Cotton Oil combine until the inter-State
commerce law shut down on railroad dis
criminations; and one of the best evidences
that the law is doing something ie furnished
by the statement that this leading trust is
now found to be useless.

It is understood that arrangements are
alreadv completed for sending the regular
quota of millionaires to the United States
Senate, from the incoming States. After
the operation of stuffing the Senatorial seats
with boodle has gone on for a few years
longer, it may be necessary to offer a pre
mium which will temper that assemblage
with a slight admixture ot brains.
Possibly when Mr. Cleveland goes South

stock of ceiling whitewash with him.
The statement that the united efforts of
two Senators to secure the removal of Gen

THE PITTSBUEO- DISPATCH,
THE TOPICAL TALKER.
How Twelve Trunks Went to New York nnd
Were Emptied to Their Owner's Sorrow
TLo Shows This Week.
In a recent number of Harper's Weekly
Julian Ralph wrote very entertainingly of cer
tain curious avocations to which men devote
themselves In New York City. Among these
he noted tbe business of buying the dresses of
fashionable women an industry very much
superior to that ot buying old clothes merely.
tt is quite a large and remunerative trade.
A few years ago a lady of this city the wife
of a well-known Pittsburger went to New
York. Her errand was partlj business, partly
pleasure. To the former purpose she carried
no less than a dozen trucks, packed with
dresses which she had no farther use for,
though many of them had not been worn more
than once or twice. She bad a fondness for
costly dresses and was devoted to fashion. Ar
rived in New York she went to the Fifth
Avenne Hotel, tbe trunks tollowing her there.
Tbe next day, as one of the urbane clerks was
allowing the public an entrancing view of his
figure and diamonds, there passed through the
lobby of the hotel a small man with Hebraic
features and an immense bundle. The clerk,
did not like the look of the old man staggering
under a load of something wrapped in an oil
skin. He sent one of the strapping Irish por
ters after the old man to bring him back. When
the old man approached the desk tbo clerk
asked blm what he had in tbe bundle.
"Old clothes, sir," was the reply.
"Where did you get them from?"
"From the lady in room 110."
"That's Mrs. , of Pittsburg one of onr
wealthiest guests impossible!" said the clerk,
sternly, and he sent up a bell boy to room 110
to ask tbo lady there if she had been disposing
of any clothing. The bell boy returned in a
few minutes with the answer that the lady in
110 did not know what the clerk meant, and
bad not been disposing of anything to anybody.
"Exactly what I thought," said the clerk,
putting his soft hands together, and then, ad
dressing tbe old man with the bundle, he said:
"I shall have to turn you over to the police."
The old man was highly excited by this time.
He took ont a big wallet and drew from it a
letter, which he handed to the clerk. The lat
ter took it and found it to be a note addressed
by tho lady occupying room 110 to Mr. ,
dealer in ladies'' and gentlemen's clothing, etc.,
asking him to call upon her at tho hotel. This
complicated matters, and the clerk, with the
note, went un to room 110 himself. Mrs.
was almost in tears when she confessed that
she bad sold a quantity of dresses to the mer
chant In question. It was a decidedly unpleas
ant situation all around. The clerk bad to
apologize to tbe lady in 110 and to tho ola
clothes merchant The former was sulky, and
the latter threatened to sue the hotel.
Tho story got out, and Mrs. , of this
city, has never taken her cast-off dresses to
New York since then.
The theaters are bidding each for very differ
ent support this week. From tbe look of the
Opera House lat night "Little Lord Fauntle
roy" bas most claims on the women and chil
dren; at the Bijou the Byrons appeal to tbe
lovers of sensation, and the howls of the gal
lery gous last night showed that thousands had
turned out to greet them. At Harris' Theater
the wolves and Indians and red fire of "Daniel
Boone" drew another section of the public that
likes its drama most richly seasoned. Fifth
avenue was obstructed by the crowds at Harris'
Tbo patronage of all the theaters and the
Academy of Music is so wonderfully good that
all the managers are making money, and an
other theater would not be at all in excess of

Little Lord Fanntleroy Himself The Byrons
Other Plays nnd Players. .
Every man, woman and child who goes to tbe
Grand Opera Honse this week will be tbe bet
ter for the visit To the average man it will be
a glimpse of the best and most gracious hours
of his boyhood that little Lord Fauntleroy will
bring back to him; to every woman, and
especially to every mother, the revelation of
that almost divine sympathy between mother
and child, which is the keynote of Mrs. Bur
nett's story.must prove indescribably touching,
and to tbe children all tho natural truth of this
portrait of a princely boy cannot fail to be de
lightful. Tbe reader of tbe book "Little Lord Fannt
leroy" is prone to doubt tbe possibility of
translating tbe story into tbe diama without
losing the wonderful charm of Mrs. Burnett's
style, and tbe delicacy of the toncb, as it were.
We are free to admit that we expected to find
Lord Faunlleroy in her play a very much
coarser character than the. hero of the book.
Those whom the footlights shine upon have to
be made np to stand the glare. Tbe
lights of the stage are artificial; and
the great charm ot Mrs. Burnett's
tale is its naturalness, the accuracy of
the distribution of light and shade. Well, we
were disappointed, for all the charm of tbe
book is in tbe play, my little lord loses none ot
his nobility upon tbe stage, and tbe only differ
ence is and it is desirable that tbe play tells
tbe story more dramatically than the book.
Last night Master Tommy Russell stepped
out of one of the illustrations of Mrs. Burnett's
book upon the stage of the Grand Opera
House, and a large andience had tbe pleasure
of making the acquaintance of Little Lord
Faunlleroy himself. Never was there in the
world a prettier picture f a sweet-tempered,
high-spirited boy than this theatrical Lord
Fanntleroy. A beautiful boy with golden
curls, and bright honest eyes, and straight
Hmbs,and a ruddy cheek,and a voice that would
melt a stonier heart than bis lordship's
the Earl of DorlncourCs. Inbiswbite blouse
and knickerbocker, as Cedric Ferrol, the son of
a poor widow in New York, tbe intimate friend
of Hobos, tho groceryman, and Dick, tho boot
black, be was as delightful as be afterward was
in the tastiest of clothing befitting tho Karl's
son and heir. Lord Faunlleroy. And ashe Is
graceful and fair, and sweetvoiced and the
very Imase physically of Mrs. Burnett's crea
tion, so Master Tommy Russell by bis extraor
dinary ability as an actor succeeds in bringing
ont every point of pathos, every jot of humor
that lines or sitnation contain. He never made
you remember be was merely acting. Self
consciousness be apparently knows nothing of.
None of the defects of child actors that awful
cleverness that makes the spectator desire to
hide his eyes or tbe f orgetf nlness so natural in
a youngster; none of these has be. Tbo result
was that the beauty of tbe character in living
flesh and blood was set before the audience.
How they admired It was shown by tbe laugh
ter, tears and applause in all parts of the house.
The company supporting Master Russell Is a
very good one. The Dearesot Miss Elizabeth
Garth had a rare sweetness and dignity which
personal beanty and refinement heightened.
Mr. Aiken was admirable as tbe Earl of Darin
court, simply admirable. Mr. Snyder gives a
very fair picture of an English family lawyer.
Bobbs, the groceryman, could hardly be made
more humorous than Mr. Parkhurst makes it,
and Dick has at least tbe true New York Bowery
accent in bis impersonation by Mr. Henderson.
There is just room for question as to whether
Miss Emily Lytton does not make Minna, the
pretender, a little too offensive, but there
is no doubt at all about the cleverness
of her acting of the part The scenery is not
wonderful, but good enough. It ought not to
take such an awfnl time -to set as It did last
night Tbe play ought to be over by 1030 In
stead of lLandasso many children wtll be pres
sent each night this matter is worth attend
ing to. t
In conclusion it may be said that such a re
freshing and beneficial play as "Little Lord
Fauntleroy" Is a rare treat indeed. It is unlike
anything in the catalogue of plays.
Tbe lovers of border drama turned out in full
force yesterday to see "Daniel Boone" at this
popular playhouse. There wasn't a bit of
standing room to be had half an hour before
either performance. In the evening the side
walk was nearly blockaded by hundreds who
could not gain admission. Even this house,
always well patronized, bas seen no such crowds
this year. As for the attraction. It was the
same old frontier play, well rendered by a ca
pable company, and the realism of the en
counters with red men heightened by the fact
that the Indians were real Cherokees, there be
ing four braves, one squaw and the 'cutest lit
tle papoose, about 2 years old, dressed In buck
skin and wearing a feather headdress as large
as his father's. His appearance interrupted
the action of the play for several minutes, the
audience going fairly wild over the comical
and unexpected sight of the little fellow crawl
ing ont of a blanket and taking bold of his
father's band. The trained horses came next
to the Indians in the estimation of the specta
tors. There are half a dozen of tbem, all good
actors. The week's business here will doubt
less be as big as that of any week this season.
A large audience was present last night when
the curtains were drawn apart and tbe snow
drifted down npon the first scene of "Across
the Continent" Miss Eate Byron came out
Btrongly In the first act as tbe broken-hearted
and dying wife, while Charles Willard. as
Dennis OPDwyre, excited the risibilities ottbe
gallery to a considerable extent. When, after
a supposed elapse ot 20 years, Oliver Byrou
made his appearance as Joe Ferris, the
"Ferret" he at once attracted the sympathies
of the audience. During tbesecond act some
clever specialties were introduced, and in tbe
interval Mr. Samuel Barkell gave a very pleas
ing cornet solo, receiving generous applause.

MRS. MILLER DISCUSSED.
A Woman of Embonpoint Skeptical A Thin
Woman Likewise Another Womnn's
After allowing tbe ladies sufficient time to
tborongbly digest the lecture given by Mrs.
Jenness Miller last week, I sallied forth to see
with what favor dress-reform and its fair ad
vocate had been received locally. As the early
portion of her address was directed especially,
to tbe fleshy woman. I selected for my first in
terview a woman prominent in society, who
freely admitted being "shockingly fleshy."
In conversation with ber I learned that she
did not believe It possible, as Mrs. Miller stated,
to keep one's weight at any certain point unless
that point was the natural weight She said
she had tried every known remedy to rednca
her own superabundance of flesh, bnt, with the
exception of actual starvation had found noth
ing effectual, and you know it is perfectly
natural for weights to vary among people just
as tbe Intellect does As to my adopt
ing the system, I wouldn't think
of it A slight person, or one of Mrs.
Miller's weight, can afford to ignore the stays,
bnt the fleshy woman, never! When asked if
she didn't think Mrs. Miller rather severe
npon those inclined to embonpoint she ad
mitted that she did. but was inclined to laugh
over the tirade.against them and their lack of
taste in dressing. Of course ber criticisms
were really against onr modistes, for most of
us depend upon them for selections of goods and
styles of making up, expecting them to make
us look as small as they can.
My next call was upon a lady who was as
shockingly thin as the other one was corpulent
She fully Indorsed what Mrs. Jenness bad said
about voluminous draperies and folds for the
nse of the slender person, but did not believe
flesh could be put on or off to pleasure one's
fancy, not even by a rigid course of
treatment for sbe had exhausted
physicians' skill, foreign travel, malt
and chewing gum, in tbe vain endeavor
to accumulate avoridupois. She thought Mrs.
Miller bad living down to a science, but rather
.felt sorry lor Mr. Miller, as he probably was
known only as tbehnsbandof the beautiful and
talented Mrs. Miller. Regarding tbe much
abused corset she said for ber part shouldn't
need any, and it was easy tor ber to discard
them. Didn't think she wonld, however, if sbe
were at all fleshy. Sbe thonzht the divided
garment was a horrible ngly thingln spite of the
efforts to make it appear attractive.
The last lady called upon was of medium
weight and height but bad above a medium
will of ber own. She said she admired the sys
tem, intended to adopt It; admitted the beanty
and talent of tbe reformer, but did not consider
ber a philanthropist by any manner of means;
there was too much business about ber for
that Thought the advertising of her garter,
magazine, school of culture, herself and ber
gowns a little too prominent in her lecture for
good taste. And so far as her gowns were
concerned, didn't think any of them but the
blue walking suit especially pretty. The idea
was conveyed that they were just from tbe
tissue paper, but the tissue paper wrappings
must have been meant for some of the gowns
shown in other cities over six months ago. She
seemed to think we never had seen bandsome
toilets from the way sbe referred to her gowns
drawing ns all to the lecture, when in reality
the dresses worn at any of our swell receptions
far exceed hers in boauty and costliness. Of
course sbe is doing lots of good and it takes a
woman like ber to successfully inaugurate a
reform. You know that until she married Mr.
Miller and exploited dress reform she was a
temperance lecturer. Thoene Branch.

Excitement Among Ills Neighbors
About Ills Burslar Alarm.
From the Philadelphia Record.!
Residents in the neighborhood of Seven
teenth and Oxford streets were rudely awak
ened from their slumbers a few nights ago by
the clanging of a deep-tonedgong. Men,
women and children put their heads out of the
windows expecting to see a terrible conflagra
tion. Two drowsy policemen who were
resting under a neighboring awning awoke,
rubbed their eyes and then dashed
toward the scene of the disturbance at the
residence of Inventor Xeely, of motor fame, on
the southeast corner Of Seventeenth and Ox
ford streets. It was tho latter's powerful
burglar alarm that was ringing with might and
main. Frantic neighbors shouted, "thieves,"
"burglars," in a weird chorus.
The stalwart Inventor dashed down his richly
carpeted staircase into the dining room, where
tbe family silver is stored. Heranplnmp Into
the armsof the policeman, who promptly forced
the inventor to the floor, but instantly recog
nized him and apologized. Afterthehonse bad
been searched from cellar to roof without lo
cating any burglar, it was discovered that the
wind had blown a shutter against tho gong,
causing the electrical apparatus to start) When
informed of the cause of the row a facetious
neighbor observed that he had an idea the
famous motor was about to mote.

when be explained tbe urgency of tbe
case, Henry Von der Leith volunteered
to undergo tbe operation, "if noth

apparatus. Then they opened Redding arm,
and the other end of tbe instrument was forced
into the opening. Blood was then forced from

Mr. Henley was one ot the actors who came

ship City of Brooklyn, of the Bristol Liner

age from New York, rescued 14 men and a
cabin boy from the wreck of the Italian bark
Barone Podesta. The bark hailed from Genoa,
and was en route tromPensacola to St Nizarre
with a cargo of lumber. Early in the month
the bark sprang a leak, and she steered for
New York. On September 10 sbe encountered
a hurricane. Her deckload went overboard,
carrying the masts with It, and the bark cap
sized. The cook was washed overboard with,
the deck load. The bark settled, and the bow
sprit and a stump of the foremast remained
above the water. The seamen put the cabin
boy in a barrel, and lashed him to the bowsprit
with them. The 13 men remained clinginsto
the bowsprit until September 13, when they
were rescued by the City of Brooklyn. During
the three days they ate the raw salt pork tbat
washed up out of the ship, and drank the rain
