The latest intelligence with regard to in
dustrial developments, takes the shape of a
big plate-glas factory which is to come
from Belgium to Pittsburg and make things
lively both in the plate-glass market and in
an industrial way. The Belgians appear to
, appreciate the fact that they can make glass
nowhere else so cheaply as in Pittsburg, and
arc consequently talking of taking them
selves and their plants as soon as possible to
the industrial center of the world.
The pilgrimage of the industries of the
effete monarchies to share in our natural
advantages, is an edifying and inspiring
sight. It is true that plate glass concerns
and steel mills are likely to crowd each
other in transit With Krupp taking
up his line of march from Germany, the
Belgians shifting the base of the plate-
f glass manufacture to our city and English
syndicates buying up sites for towns and
tank glass concerns, all at once, the passage
may be uncomfortably jammed. But it
will be all right when they can get over.
Crnppit negotiating for abig river frontage
up the Monongahela and there are a few
other choice manufacturing sites in the
environs of Pittsburg, left for reinforce
ments of such rank. When they are com
fortably settled down in the valleys of
Western Pennsylvania we will unite with
them in showing the world how iron, steel
and glass can be made., in quantity and
quality never realized before.
I Pittsbnrg may well shout a welcome over
the Alleghenles to the Belgians. Let them
bring all Belgium with them. There is
plenty of room for the whole nation in
THE WHOLESALE UCEKSE QTTESTIOir.
The Supreme Court decision on the ques
tions of wholesalers' and distillers' licenses
handed down yesterday, is likely to strike
the ordinary and. uninstructed mind as in
creasing the mysteries which environ the
license laws. Nevertheless upon careful
t Jtudy, the grouncLof the decision is tolera
bly clear"JThe'"rnling of the Supreme
Court is that under the act of 1867, which
ip still in force as to wholesalers and dis
tillers, the courts of the rural counties
lave the same discretion as they have with
regard to retailers; while in Allegheny and
Philadelphia counties the special law, left
unrepealed as to wholesale license, gives no
such discretion. This together with the re
marks of the Court on the defect of the
present law should suggest the importance
of amenuments which will make it uniform
all over the State.
PirrSBUEG'S GREATEST CHAKCE. """
The statements of Colonel T. P. Eoberfs
with regard to the supply of water for the
proposed canal between this city and Lake
ijde, together with the views of other engi-
ccrs, places the practicability of the pro-
jct beyond question. It is an agreed fact
Hat water sufficient for vessels of 800 or
000 tons can be obtained for the canal.
' uch a canal would permit the barges loaded
t Marquette and Escanaba to discharge
leir cargoes at Pittsburg and load back
gain with coal.
It is almost impossible to overstate the
d vantage which such a project would bAng
i Pittsburg. It is not too much to say that
the enlargement proposed in 1870 had
sen secured, Pittsburg would to-day have
sen a city of over half a million inhabi
mts. It is easy to count up the popula
on engaged in the iron and steel indus
ries, diverted to other cities, by the dis
riminations of 1873 to 1878, that would
late up the difference. With such a water
nte those discriminations would have been
npossible and those industries would have
een located in Pittsburg. With that route
pen the discriminations which squeezed
ut the Pittsburg refining industry would
ive been equally restrained.
This gain can be secured for the future, if
ttsbnrg will arouse itself to its possibili
&. Not a day should be lost in urging
the work: to actuafmaterialization.
EEIiIEy JOE THE AE FAMINE.
The statement that the release of cars
heretofore enirased in the traffic bettwn
Pittsburg and the lake, will permit the re-
uu oi iuc car i amine, is welcome news to
the shippers' of freight that take&4beall
rail route, but it hardly giveamnch conso
lation to those who have had large ship-
Enehts to make by lake and rail, and have
been unable to get them transported.
"While, of course, any relief is grateful, it
rwill hardly remove the feeling that the
facilities for transportation at a place like
Pittsburg should be adequate to the de
mands at any time. As to the rule of
eharrin? demurrage for rant rtfjiinerl
vvond a reasonable time, if that wouldhave
remedied the difficulty it should have been
resorted to long ago. The rights of carriers

THE 0EE RATE UP AGAIN.
The formal and authoritative nnnouce
ment that, on November 20, the freight rate
on ore will be advanced to 51 CO indicates
that the railroads arc still disposed to get
the last cent that is possible out of the
industries of Pittsburg.
The advance is explained on the ground
that the iron market has improved so much
that iron interests are able to pay better
rates. There is some foundation lor this;
although it will take but few such advances
as this one upon ore and the appreciation in
the price of coke to confiscate all the im
provement that has been made in the aver
age price of pig iron. But that does not
touch the meat of the matter. The reduc
tion of the ore rate to 51 05 per ton was
made on the clear showing by Mr.
Carnegie that the higher rate was
transferring the pig iron Industry
of Allegheny county to the shore of Lake
Michigan. At the reduced rate, ore is the
most profitable low class freight carried in
large volume by the railroads. The re
duction was the wise choice of one railroad
to carry a liberal volume of ore freights at
moderate rates rather than to let the busi
ness dwindle and perish. Are we to con
clude that the roads are now agreed to make
all the money that they can for the moment,
and to kill the goose that lays the golden
We do not believe that the railroads can
maintain ihis high rate, which has not been
really In force except at brief intervals since
years before the passage of the Inter-State
Commerce law. If they do the Pittsburg
manufacturers should begin anew the agita
tion which produced the concessions of last
summer. In the meantime it may have a
pertinent bearing on the project of the
canal, which will bring the ore here at a
tithe of the charge that the railroads are
now seeking to impose.
THE PEICE OE PEHTCES.
The revelations concerning the monetary
basis of the marriage of Hiss Clara Hun
tington and Prince Francis Hatzfeldt are
more interesting than any other feature of
this exchange of American cash and beauty
for a German title and rascality. They
show that Prince Hatzteldt conducted the
deal with Mr. Collis P. Huntington with
considerable shrewdness. The price the
Prince put upon himself at first did not
meet with Mr. Huntington's approval. The
American railroad king was willing to pay
a fair sum for a genuine prince, even if his
royal highness were a little flyblown and
faded, but he could not take the Prince at
his own valuation. Then Prince Hatzfeldt
began to scale down the price, lopping off a
hundred thousand dollars at a time. What
the exact figure was at which Mr. Hunting
ton agreed to take the Prince is not known,
but it is known to be 'enough to
pay the promising son-in-law's debts,
which amount to a million, dol
lars. We understand that there is prodig
ious joy among the money lenders, gam
blers, blacklegs and fair and fast women of
Paris and other European capitals over the
prospect of the liquidation of Haltxfeldt's
debts. This jubilation is probably prema
.ture. Prom these transactions we can estimate
with tolerable accuracy the present market
value of European Princes. Prince Hatz
feldt, son of a second rate German Prince, a
gambler, roue and deadbeat of great
notoriety, a pariah as far as decent society
is concerned, gets in return for his hand in
marriage hearts are never referred to in the
high world a pretty American girl, a
million dollars, and a father-in-law worth
many millions more to fall back upon; Mr.
Collis P. Huntington has always been re
garded here as a sharp bargain driver, and
we presume he got this pretty prince a littie
below rather than above the market price.
Still Prince Hatzfeldt looks very dear to us
at any price.
Taking then what Mr. Huntington paid
for Prince Hatzfeldt as a guide, what are we
to suppose would a No. 1 prince, a moral,
self-sustaining, tolerably sensible man cost?
Certainly a fabulous sum, such as not even
an Astor oraYanderbilt could afford to pay.
For the convenience of American parents
and heiresses who desire to procure royal
connections, it is desirable that some expert
on the subject should compile and publish a
price list of eligible European princes at
once. Very little space need be given to
such matters as the character or financial
standing of the royalties, but plenty of room
necessarily must be set aside for the selling

With water transportation between Lake
Erie and Pittsburg, immense advantage
would accrue to this town. But if it is
worth having, it is worth working for. The
manufacturers and merchants of Pittsburg,
if they are fully .alive to their interests,
will lose no time in organizing working
committees to push along for the canal.

Since The Dispatch has discussed
ihat reported Kansas usury law forfeiting
the principal where usurious interest u
charged, it is no more than fair to say that
the report was incorrect The law previous
to the last session only forbade the collec
tion of interest above 12 per cent, and in
case it was collected required the excess to
be credited on th.e principal. The amended
law reduces legal rates to 10 per cent and
forfeits double the excess. Experience
proves that usury laws do not amount, to
much; but it will be a very general opinion
that the man who tries to get over 12 per
cent interest, deserves to lose it .

and loved women not wisely, but too
many at tbe same time, at the Grand

a really valuable addition to the list of Ameri

ty. It does lack a good deal of being compar
able, for Instance, with such work as "Tbe

acts the motive of the piece would not seem so
Mr. Reed is blessed with a face that Is com
ical, even in tbe repose of deep slumber. His
nose is an amusing anecdote in profile, ana
viewed from the front is a pointed jest A cer
tain angularity in his body from toes to crown,
and a voice that is normally an elfin horn from
Yankee land last night it was muffled In a cold
make up Mr. Reed's big stock In trade. He
can assume more queer attitudes than any
comedian we know, and his voice usually has a
range and variety of intonation that are equally
peculiar. All these personal characteristics be
gave to Bamuel Bundy, and a funny imperson
ation it was. Nobody else made any vigorous
effort to be humorous except Mr. Harry A.
Smith, as a semi-servile college professor, j3or

vanlan debutante, made a very charming
widow, with a delicious taste in dress. Miss

looks. Nearly all tbe company seem to be suf
fering from that mysterious complaint "tbe

he was unable to sing his incidental songs, and
made a little speech instead at the end of the
Crowded houses yesterday afternoon and
evening greeted the presentation of "The Old
Oaken Bucket" by tho Gray and Stephens
Company. The play Is one of the good, old
fashioned melo-dramas which appeal so
strongly to tbe sympathetic side of human na
ture, and keeps the interest of the audience at
fever heat from the rise of the curtain on tbe
first act nntil it drops at the close of the last
act Miss Minnie Oscar Gray, who is one of
tbe best impersonators of heroio boys now be
fore tbe public, assumed tbe role ot Messenger
Boy, and her rendition of the character was
warmly received. Messrs. Joseph Coyne, J. C.
Harrington and Charles Eastwood did some
clever comedy work, and their singing was
quite a feature of tbe performance. The
trained dogs played their parts with great
cleverness, and were charmingly Indifferent to
the applause they won. The special scenery
carried by this company for the staging of its
productions, is very flno, not a necessary detail
having been omitted.

has too much tact to do anything of tbat sort.

Reudlnc for Other Folks.
There are some very odd and many very in
teresting ways in which women make their liv
ing now, ways they have in many cases found
out for themselves and along which no men
keep tbem company. Every few months some
bright creature whose pocketbook is emptier
than her heart carves out for herself and her
sisters a new avenue to honorable mainte
nance. "Emerson" Jones Is a young New Yorker
who brought from Vassar to New York a
nickname, sound judgment and a good educa
tion. Miss "Emerson" has originated a pro
fession. She regularly reads the newspapers,
weeklies, magazines and new books, and for a
consideration instils tbe pith of them into the
vapid mind or fashion wildered head of your
spoiled darlfnes of society, who want "to talk
well to their friends and to be thought smart
and progressive, but who have neither the time
nor the inclination to read or think for them
selves. VEmerson" that Is, Miss "Emerson,"
who, it is said, was called after Ralph Waldo
to distinguish her from the other Jones, of
Vassar, fills the void 'the world could never
fill" it In these brain pans. She tells Mrs. Vera

Lady Guides and Accountants. v
Women in New York will undoubtedly find a
new calling before long as "lady guides."
Thai's what they call themselves in London,
where the "Lady Guide Association" very re
cently published statistics showing that it was
established and on a prosperous basis. There
are no professional guides for whose services
Btrangers in New York now call except the
hotel detectives who show guests from tbe
country the Sixth avenue and West Third
street dives after midnight Women conldn't
do that, of course, but when tbe World's Fair
comes with its millions of strangers, who will
want to go everywhere and see everything In a
limited time, women can be guides in- New
York and guides to the fair, and in all proba
bility they will be. Tbey might just as well can

themselves "guide women."however, as "lady
guides," and in fact a great deal better. Seeing
tne signts oi tne town witn a nngnt-eyeo, rosy
cheeked guide woman to point them ont would
at pnee become an attractive diversion even for
your veteran New Yorker who fancies he
knows every cobble stone on Broadway.
English women seem to have good beads at
thinking ont new callings for themselves. A
smart English girl bas just launched herself on
tbe sea of London life as a household auditor
and accountant: families whose grocers' and
butchers' bills are very large and who don't
want a housekeeper about all the time call In
tbe bonsebold accountant once a month' to
verify the balances of tbe butler's and bead
cook's accounts; she does so and gets well paid
for it. Whr shouldn't there bo household
accountants in New York, and why shouldn't
they be women?

There is still room for a great woman general,

bare ground, ate ha'dtack and salt pork and
rode on tbe march by berhnsband'sside. There
was a woman who might have been a general.
She was a captain, by brevet, for "the boys"

How His Filibosterlnc Business Proved a
Ifrom the Hew Tork Herald.
Tippoo Tib's methods of earning an honest
living are certainly unique, if not original.
Old "Tip," as be is called,was a man of no par
ticular renown until Stanley took him along on
bis first expedition. Tip was useful to Stanley,
inbiringtba men and acting as interpreter.
Tip, it would seem, though, had other 'fish to
fry. It occurred to him that with a band of
Arabs and well-armed natives he would go on a
filibustering expedition and levy tribute on the
surrounding tribes. As is well known. Tip's
business in this respect has been eminently suc
cessful. Tip Is now one of the nobility, when he is
there, of tbe Court of Zanzibar. Most of his
stealings' and thn results of bis marauding ex
peditions go to Zanzibar, and this fact Is both
known and appreciated by tbe Sultan, who
gives Tip his countenance. Tip has virions
ways of exacting tribute. Sometimes bo will
surprise a village, and , his men with repeating
rifles will fire into tbe defenseless blacks until
the latter throw down their spears, and sur
render. Then such of tbe survivors as he can lay hold
ot together with a number of women, be car
ries off, holding themprisoners until the. Test
of the tribe buy their release with ivory or
skins. AJtrong, healthy native Tip regards as
worth 'at least one elephant task. When tip
strikes a poor country where the natives possess
nothing of value the captives are taken to
neighboring tribes and 'sold as slaves: or, as
often happens, are bought by cannibals, who
eat tbem. Tip has supplied Stanley with many
men.- Tip can always ' secure men when ha
