IN 11 FIERY SHOWER,
Hye Men Seriously Burned at
Spang's Steel Works.
ifl EXPLOSION OF METAL
Caused by Wet Clay on the Lower
Plate of the Iron Hold.
A SCEKB CREATED BY "WOMEN
An explosion occurred at Sparc's Steel
and Iron Works yesterday afternoon about 4
o'clock, which will result fatally. Five
men were caught in a shower of liquid steel,
and two are expected to die. The names of
the injured are:
Matt Rhime, ladle man. badly burned about
the body, arms and lower limbs. Tal.cn to

scorched, the ineul burning his face and
Peter Osburx, pitman, badly burned about
his bodv, the metal almost cooking Ms flesh.
Grave fears are entertained for his recovery.
Jolts Abams, pitman, seriously burned about
his bodv and face.
Jamfs Grant, test boy, burned about the face
and legs. He will recover.
CAUSED HT WET CUAT.
The explosion was caused by wet fireclay
on the bottom plate, on which the mold
stands. When the hot metal was turned into
the mold about half full, the liquid mass
burst forth in the air and fell in fiery balls
on the men who were around the ladle.
Those who were caught in the liquid shower
rushed out into open nir screaming with
pain. Everything that human hands could
do to alleviate the sufferings of the men was
The news of the accident spread like wild
fire through the village. Doctors were soon
on the scene and rendered whatever services
they could to ease the agonies of the men.
"Women almost besieged the mill to learn if
their friends or relatives were caught in the
seething miss o! metal.
SOME TEARFUT. SCENES.
When Bhine's wife recognized him she
burst into tears, wringing her hands in de
spair, nutil the neighbors had to remove her
from the scene. Other women acted like
wise. When poor Grant's mother saw him
she clasped him in her arms and wept bit
Such a scene of sorrow has not been wit
nessed in the village of Etna for years.
Even strong men were moved to tears when
they saw their fellows, who but a few mo
ments before were strong and robust, lying
on the ground moaning with intense vain.
They turned away deathly sick lrom the
sight. The skin of Rhine was actually
roasting and crackling just as if he was be
ing slowly cooked belore a hot fire.
An inquiry was made last night at the
mill to ascertain the cause of the
accident. The Bessemer blower stated
that owing to the fire clay which
is laid on the bottom plate not having been
properly dried before the liquid metal was
poured into it, caused the explosion.
DET THEM WITH GAS.
He said when the molds were laid on top
of the plate the pitmen always turn gas
into the, mold to dry the fire clay.
It is evident, he said, that the gas was too
strong in the mold where the explosion
took place, the gas .merely drying the sur
iace of the fireclay. When the molten
metal was pured into the mold, the wet
fireclay and steam forced its way through
the metal, sending a fiery pillar into the
air which burst into a spray over the un
The explosion was quiet and unexpected.
Kobody had time to get away from the
burning metal. In a moment the horrible
and possibly fatal accident was over.
The Spang Steel and Iron Company did
all they could to help the men, and it is re
ported that they will deal generously with
the friends of tieunfortunate men. A sub
scription will be immediately started among
the workmen for the benefit of the injured.
It is to be proportionately distributed ac
cording to the needs and "circumstances of

Two Visitors Secure Some Cash With a
About 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon two
well-dressed, gentlemanly looking youngmen
called at the office of the Drs. McClelland,
No. 411 Penn avenue, and asked the young
lady who admitted tbem to see Dr. J. H.
McClelland. They were informed that he
had just gone out, and it was not known
how soon he wonld return.
The strangers then said they were inti
mate friends of the doctor and wanted to
see him. If she would have no objections
they would sit in his office and wait.until
his return, as they lived out of the city and
had no place else'to go. The young lady in
vited them in, and they sat in the reception
room lor about half an hour, when, as
the young lady passed the door
in answering another ring at the
bell, one of the young men hailed
her, saying his friend was suffering from a
chill and would she be kind enough to take
him to a room where there was a fire. Al
though not suspicious of the two men the
young lady, instead of taking them to an
other room, placed a chair over the hot air
register in the hallway for the supposed
She left them then and in a few minute;,
when she passed through the hall again, she
found they had disappeared. Looking into
the office" she saw the door leading to the
doctor's private office standing open. In
vestigation showed that the two visitors had
opened the doctor's desk with a chisel
which they left behind, and had rifled every
drawer in it, securing between 90 and $100

given a description of the thieves,but up to
midnight had not captured them.

'Squire Boyle notified Officers McCaffrey

The colored people who took such a
prominent part in raising funds for the

CHAIRMAN BEICE IN TOWN.
He Sara the Republicans Have No Tartu
Principles A Western Dicker to Beat
McKinley for Speaker.
Calvin S. Brice, of Ohio, Chairman of the
Democratic National Committee, passed
through the city last night on his way to
Washington. Mr. Brice is a, candidate for
the United States Senatorship from his
Sta'e, and spoke gloomily of the chances for
the success of the ticket. When approached
by a Dispatch reporter Mr. Brice was a
little shy at first, but unlimbered himself
under the influence of a good cigar and
"It is needless for me to remark that the
result of the recent election in Ohio is giv
ing general satisfaction all over the country
and will have a general effect on all elec
tions. I cannot say that it will directly
affect the Presidental nominations, as they
are too far in the future. McKinley cannot
win the Speakership fight. Beed, of Maine,
will probably be the successful candidate
for the position, and his election, I think,
would give satisfaction. Burroughs, of
Michigan, is dickering with Beed. He has
promised to give the latter all the snpport
he can command, provided Beed will fight
for the World's Fair for Chicago. There
will be considerable discussion on the
tariff question, and the Republicans
will have to do something in this respect
Upon the tariff, the Republican party has
no principles. With them it is merely a
question of schedules. Their action in
placing sugar on the free list, and Louisiana
being a Democratic State clearly shows this.
McKinley is the only Republican who has
any tariff principles at all, and is the best
man the party has.
"The Democrats of Ohio are harmonious,
and will continue to remain so. Campbell's
victory shows this, and his election was en
tirely due to the lact that there was a spirit
oi unity. The Republicans, owing to their
recent defeats throughout the country, will
have to change their programme at this
session of Congress. It they continue in
their present course another avalanche will
strike them, and entirely bury them out of
General W. S. Brown, a well-known Be
publican lawyer of Washington, who had
been in the city for several days, left last
night for his home. In speaking of the
political situation he said: "The Repub

the methods pursued by President Harrison.
The leaders at the capital were very much
pnt out at bis action in regard to the Cnrean
mutiny business. Blaine does not stand
very high with the President, and they are
always wrangling. Mr. Harrison snubs him
on his preferences for offices, and allows his
son, Russell, to interfere,too much with the
administration of affairs of the State Depart

J. Lowrie Bell, of Washington, General
Superintendent of the Railway Mail Ser
vice, and A. .Burt, Superintendent of the
Fifth division of the service, with head
quarters in Cincinnati, were in the city yes
terday on business connected with the rail
way mail service. Postmaster Larkin, it
aDpears, has made an application to the de
partment to have the mails from the East
directed to Pittsburg divided on the mail
cars, before reaching this city, into batches
for the various carrier districts.
At present the Pittsburg mail comes to
this city in bulk, and must all be sorted in
the local office. It happens that the mails
from the East which are the heaviest re
ceived, are often late, and arrive about the
same time as the mails from other points.
The local force, which is small, is swamped.
The reform will probably require an increase
of the number of railway postal clerks.
During the afternoon Messrs. Bell and Burt
visited Postmaster Larkin. and talked with
him about the matter. Superintendent Bell

K0 TESTKI COMMITTEE.
Rev. Samuel Maxwell Says That He Was
Not Asked to Resign.
The trouble in Trinity parish seems as far
irom settlement as ever. To increase the
general perplexity, a rumor that the vestry
had appointed a committee of three to wait
upon the rector, Bev. Samuel Maxwell, and
ask his resignation, was started. For the
purpose of ascertaining the truth or falsity
of the rumor, a Dispatch reporter visited
Rev. Maxwell last night In answer to in
quiries, the reverend gentleman said.
"I have not been waited upon by a com
mittee from the vestry asking me to resign.
As for my not notifying the vestry that I
would not nominate the late Mr. Shoen
berger. 1 told the vestrymen that if I had
had the assurance that Mr. Shoenberger
could have been elected, I would have nom
inated him, and gladly. But how could he
have been elected? He was not a resident
of the parish, and therefore was disqualified
from holding the position. I have been
blamed as the cause of Mr. Shoenberger's
defeat I am not, as my nominating him
would not have insured his election."
The rector refused to speak further on the
subject, but left it to be inferred that he was
prepared to fight it out on that line if it
took all winter.
TESTING THE FIELD.
The Sewickley Dairy Companv Waiting the
Outcome of Two Wells.
The Sewickley Dairy Company held a
special meeting in the St Charles Hotel to
discuss a proposition to go into the oil and
gas business. The company owns a large
tract of land in the Sewickley valley, which
is along the line of recent oil" developments.
At present the company is boring two
wells, and they expect to bring them in
in about ten days.
The indications that they will strike it
rich are quite good, and at the meeting
yesterday it was decided to postpone the
matter until the wells had been put down
and the territory tested. Mr. Kidd Fleming
stated that concerning future developments
much depended on what could be obtained
in the line of favorable leases.
It was denied that the company intended
to abandon the dairy business. This branch
will be continued as in the past

A LARGE AUDIENCE LISTENS TO HIM
Rev. Dr. Edward McGlynn, recently rec
tor of St Stephen's Catholic Church in Sew
Tork, the great clerical apostle of Henry
George's theories, lectured in the Braddock
Opera House last evening on the theme
"How to Abolish Poverty."
The audience filled about two-thirds of
the house. It consisted of the middle class
of American men and women, as a rule, but
there were here and there men who were
plainly mill workers. The audience was
attentive and patient, for the address was
more than two hours long. Applause was
given at rare intervals, but there was little
opportunity for applause. The talk ran
alongsmoothlyandconnectedly,and there was
no apparent effort to produce a crisis where
applause might be expected.
Rev. L N. W. Irvine, of the Protestant
Episcopal Church, and Rdv. Dr. McGlynn
walked upon the stage together. Rev. Mr.
Irvine presented the lecturer in a few
eulogistic words. He said that when the
history of leaders of great movements was
written the lecturer would occupy therein
many paces. He was not a runaway from
the Roman Church, but a faithful adherent
to its faith. "He is not under any ban,"
said the presenter, "for any violation of its
faith or morals, but because he loves his
citizenship and true Catholicity better than
any system of politics from Italy."
THE DOCTOR WAS SALUTED.
When Dr. McGlynn smiled, and stepped
forward with a bow he was sainted with
generous applause. He is tall and rotund,
well rounded in body and limb, and
his fat cheeks depend upon his collar.
He wore a frock coat and a common
black tie. He deprecated the praise
of the gentleman who introduced
him, but acknowledged the truth of the
statement that he had no quarrel with the
Catholic religion. He said, "I am ready to
protest on every suitable occasion that I
have nothing bnt the profoundest reverence
for the creeds of the church, and tor those
holy sacraments that I believe Christ has
left" to his Christian ministry as food and
medicine for sick and weary souls. It would
be a pain for me to enter into any rehearsal
of the events to which my friend has
made reference. I shall content my
self with speaking on the subject
"How to Abolish Poverty.' Although some
desire has been expressed to hear me speak
on another subject, I have felt great re
luctance to sneak on that subject the com
mon schools, because it might irritate
where I have no desire to irritate. I have
treated that subject with frankness at home,
to my own friends, who perfectly under
stand my position. Concerning my lecture
here to-night the newspapers have said cer
tain things which I hope I am glad to say
I hope are untruthful; but because of what
thev have said I am all the more anxious to
This was the only allusion the speaker
made to the report that Rev. Father Hickey
had forbidden his parishioners to attend.
Dr. McGlynn then entered upon the sub
ject of the lecture. He spoke with a
mellifluous and steady voice, distinctly un
derstood by all. His gestures were few and
not vigorous. He expressed his varying
motives rather with the eyes and the mouth
than by his arms or hands. Sometimes,
when stating a ridiculous proposition, he
made a very grotesque countenance.
rOVEETT MOT GOD'S PLAIT.
He said that some good souls thought it
hlasphemons to attempt to do away with
poverty, considering it a necessary part
of God's plan. In the same way
people thought it a sacrilege to at
tempt to prevent smallpox by the use
of vaccination. "The abolition of poverty."
he said, "is a social question, closely con
nected with the problem of life. It is a
most momentous question for the welfare of
society, lor the maintenance or growth ot
civilization. It is closely connected with
the very essence of religion. It is essen
tially a religions Question. I am. bv choice.
by voluntary dedication and by sacerdotal'
consecration, a priest ot the Christian
chnrch, a preacher of Christ's truths to man.
I assure you that I stand just where I stand
not in spite of my religion, but because of
my religion. I have always believed that
nothing can be more in keeping with the
genial character of the Christian priesthood
than to be solicitous for the sufferings of
the masses of men, of the poor and the out
cast. Nothing can be worthier for a minis
ter of Christ than to have in his heart and
on his lips the thonght and the words of the
Master when he said, 'I feel compassion for
the multitude lest they should grow faint
by the wayside.' "
'"We wage war against poverty because
we are convinced that the involuntary
poverty in the world, and the vice and crime
flowing from poverty, are the result not of
the law of God but of a violation of God's
law. Poverty is, indeed, a fruitful source
DENYIKG EIGHTS OP MEX.
"The involuntary poverty which arises
from the inability of men to employ them
selves, or when employed to obtain an ade
quate reward, is the result of denying to
men in practice the enjoyment of those
rights declared by the Declaration of Inde
pendence to be theirs inalienably and by the
gilt of the Creator. The question resolves
itself into the religious question, 'as to the
mystery of man's existence here and bis des
tiny hereafter. The preamble to the Dec
laration of Independence is a profession of
religion.since it bases therights of man upon
a gift of the Creator. The basis is the
fatherhood of God and the brotherhood
of man. That is the essence of all religion.
From the fatherhood of God flowall the great
truths that shall serve to redeem mankind
from his slavery, that shall make possible
the prophecies of the seers of Israel and ot
the best men of all the ages, when the world
shall enjoy perfect peace and perfect justice,
when, in the words of the most giftedof our
poets, man shall govern himself in the
parliament ot man."
After speaking of the injustice and crime
of slavery, and of the changes wrought by
time in the views men hold on that subject,
"All men have equal right to life, liberty
and the pursuit of happiness. The pursuit
oi happiness means the gratifying of our
necessary wants, not merely bodily wants,
but mental, moral and spiritual. God has
given us these bodily, mental and spiritual
faculties and needs, and we have eqnal
right to gratify and cultivate them. How
shall that be done?
"Labor is the essential condition for
doing that The Father has placed us in
this storehouse, where, by diligent study,
we are to decipher His handwriting. This
workshop is abundantly supplied with all
manner of material, so that we are enabled,
by the proper use ol these materials, to rise
from the finite to the infinite, from the
creature to the Creator. Labor is God's
law. It is not merely a right; it is a duty.
A BROAD VIEW" OF LABOB.
"Labor is not to be restricted in its
definition to the coarser kind of muscular
exertion. We mnst broaden the view, so
that it shall take in the exertion of whatso
ever energy of mind or muscle, of brain or
brawn, that does or produces or brings
about something that is useful to. the bodily,
mental, moral or spiritual wants of men.
The man is the nobler worker in proportion
to the dignity of the want to which he
ministers. In'that sense, the whole human
family should be composed of workers.
"TJnfortuuately mankind is divided into
three classes working men, beggar men
and thieves. Everybody ought to be con
tributing something to-the world for the
living he gets out cut. It should be a re

proach to any man to live a life of mnt
idleness. We do not wish to kill off any
body. We merely want to convert the beg
gars and thieves into useful members of the
Commonwealth. The worst of the thieves
are those who possess the largest shares of
the world's wealth. 'They toil not, neither
do they spin; and yet Solomon in all his
glory was not arrayed like one of these.' "
Man, Dr. McGlvnn said, was essentially
aland animal. He cannot live withont
land, and men have an equal' right to those
natural bounties which are the gift of the
Creator, sunlight, air, water and land.
Ownership rightfully belongs only to that
which man produces by his labor. No man
made the land, 'and therefore no man ought
to own it It is.a gift of God to the entire
race. Dr. McGlynn said that commerce,
the building of cities, and other conditions,
give certain land a fictitious value,
beyond its inherent value. That is the
rental value, and that rental ought to be
turned into the pnblic treasury. The land
is by God's gift the property of the commu
nity, and it is in great cities, in addition,
the property of the community because the
growth and activity of the community has
given it the increased value. It was only
Just, he said, that all its rental should go to
the community. Dr. McGlynn proceeded to
illustrate how such a system of taxation
would compel the idle millionaire to work,
would increase the opportunities for em
ployment, would save much of the returns
to laborers, and would bless the whole com
munity. A MARKET STREET HOTEL.

There is also an effort being made by several
parties to secure the Splane property on the
opposite corner, the Pennsylvania Railroad
Company being among the number. It is
supposed the latter desires the property for

of the city so as to be able to compete with

Assistant District Attorney Alcorn last
night finished the work upon the indict
ments in the Jeannette labor importation
case, and will enter suits to-day against
Chambers & McKee, James Campbell and
William Slicker for violation of the alien
contract labor law.
District Attorney Lyon stated yesterday
to a Dispatch reporter that a letter had
just been received from the Attorney Gen
eral suggesting the advisability of entering
but one suit. He said: "This is to be a
test case, and Charles Ford, one of the men
who made an affidavit to the effect that he
had been imported, will be the basis of the
suit. It was the intention to enter suits in
the cases oi both Ford and Bernard Gaffney,
but the latter has skipped out and gone
back to his home in Sunderland, England.
In speaking of the case yesterday, Dis
trict Attorney Lyon said: "The first thine
to be done is to file a precipe with the Clerk
of the United Stales Circuit Court. In this
case it will be before Commissioner Mc
Candless and will be under the new pro
cedure act. This provides for a fine of
51,000 to be recovered as a debt againt the
parties in favor of the United
States. This case will be like any
otber civil suit to recover a sum of money.
If these men, Gaffney and Ford, were
brought here in the manner they state in
their affidavits then there is no question but

INDIANA MINEBS STARTING,
And Said to be Ready to Beinae Work In
The report that appeared in a morning
cotemporary yesterday to the effect that the
striking miners at Brazil, Ind., after assem
bly in mass meeting, had decided to return
to work at the operators' rates, is at least
premature. No meeting has yet taken
place, but a mass meeting of the miners will
be held this evening to consider what steps
should be taken in the present extreme con
ditions ot affairs. It is said that the men
are nearly at starvation point, and are
weakening in their opposition through lack

where he had been in attendance upon the
meeting of the association at that place
some days ago. The only business of im
portance transacted at the meeting was an
advance on the prices on flint bottles and
A resolution was passed that all prices
and quotations now in effect be withdrawn
and new quotations made. The cause of
the advance is on account of the advance in
the prices of raw material. Among the
other Pittsburgers present at the meeting
were Joseph S. Hamilton, President pf the
association, and representatives from the
firms of Tibley Bros, and McCnlly& Co.
One of them stated that his firm had orders

Mr. Ford's Application for 50 Alien Work
men Was Denied.
A telegram was received from Washington
last night that Mr. Edward Ford, President
of the Pittsburg Plate Glass Company.recent
ly wrote to the Treasury Department to the
effect that SO skilled laborers were required
to keep their plant in. operation, and that as
this was a new industry in this country, it
was necessary to obtain the laborers from
abroad. He desired to be informed before
taking action in the matter if the importa
tion of the required laborers would be per
mitted. Acting Secretary Batcheller to-day-informed
him that he did not see how it
could be done, inasmuch as the alien con
tract labor law is absolute on the subject
and must be enforced, adding that as plate
glass has been manufactured in this country
for over 20 years it could hardly be regarded
as a new industry.

organization will absorb the other two.
There is a probability of the Australian
system of voting being adopted, as its opera

And If Ho Were, Ho Would Not ba Able to
Accept for Home Time.
Rev. L N. Hays, whose resignation as
pastor of the Central Presbyterian Church,
of Allegheny, has been accepted, denies the
report that he has received a call from the
McClure Avenue Presbyterian Church, of
Allegheny. Dr. Hays told a Dispatch
reporter some time ago that he had received
several offers of pulpit, but would not tell
from which churches the offers came. He
said last night, however, that the McClure
Avenue Church was not one of the number.
So far as accepting a call is. concerned,
Dr. Hays cannot accept one from any
church until the pastoral relations between
him and his present congregation are dis
solved. As has been repeatedlv published
in The Dispatch, the Presbytery will
meet on the second Tuesday of December,
when action will be taken on the resigna
tion. If it is decided to .dissolve the pas
toral relations, the dissolution may be
ordered to take effect immediately, or it may
be postponed until the end of the year.
Then, and not till then, will Dj. Hays be
able to accept & call.

S. P. Hill, aa old telegraph operator, who
has been stationed st the Central Hotel,
Allegheny, for a nnmber of years, committed
suicide yesterday morning abont 5 o'clock
by shooting himself through the head. The
weapon used was a 32-caliber revolver, and
death was instantaneous.
Hill, who was an expert operator, was a
victim of the morphia and liquor.habit, and
has been a meze physical wreck for some
years. He was also an inveterate smoker
of cigarettes, the little paper-wrapped
rolls ot tobacco being scarcely ever out of
his mouth. Some time ago ho lost his posi
tion, and this, coupled with his bad habits,
brought on a melancholia from which he
never recovered. According to a story told
or wnanes hkk, Dariceeper m the Central
Hotel saloon, Hill was in there Tuesday
night. He was not exactly drunk, but
there was a wild look in his eyes, and he
seemed restless and ill at ease. Mr. Frank
McCoy, proprietor of the hotel, came into
the saloon, when. Hill crossed over to
him, and, making a motion to draw a re
volver, threatened to kill hira. The bar
keeper thereupon ejected Hill. Mr. McCoy
also says that Hill often threatened in the
past to kill himself.
The suicide was committed in a room on
the second floor of No. SO North Diamond
street, next door to the Central HoteL The
deceased was abont 46 years of age, and lelt
a widow and one daughter, who is married.
The preliminary inquest was held yesterday
afternoon. The final inquest will be held

M. Marshall, Esq,, who had gone out of

the court room, and walking over to Gen

table, whispered to him in a tone lond
enough to be heard by all the jurymen: "Is
he affecting the jury at all? I don't think
he is." Mr. Porter appealed to Judge
