What is not true is sometimes said inno

Sometimes there is a motive for prevarica

facts that caused the writing of this article
it is not necessary nor politic to say.
There certainly was great interest among
many people as to the success of the 36-inch

Philadelphia Company lay from the Mur

large portion of the way since September

November. It has proved to be the tightest

One of the first questions that would nat
urally come to one's mind when told that a
line so costly as that was laid experimental

would be, "Is it possible that persons would
invest so much money without first ascer

laying of a short line at comparatively small

Only the upper flanges of the joint are

bolted and riveted to the pipe, with an
asbestos lining and then sealed with lead.
HOW ASBESTOS IS USED.
The larger circle (No. 2) is intended to
represent a solid ball of asbestos, which is
placed between the two flanges below tbe
bolt, and above the offset in one flange, as is
noted in the diagram. It is one inch in
diameter, but when the bolt is screwed up
tightly it takes the oblong shape shown in
No. 3." The smaller circle, marked 4, as it
appears at the side, and A as it is shown in
the joint, is also asbestos, but is mixed with
asphaltum. This is pounded in by a man

In fact, the joint seems to be the perfec

Heat expands and cold contracts. Even a
boy knows that But what is the amount of
this expansion and contraction on different
objects and under different circumstances
must be determined by observation. After
careful observation it has been found
that a 36-inch main will varv ot

Therefore there is put in the line

A SERMON ON JEFF.
Hbt. Sir. Billa Bakes tbe President of tbe
Confederacy Be Calls Him a Soulless
Kev. A. M. Hills, pastor of the First
at the morning service yesterday, onj "The
Self Respect of Sinners as Illustrated by
Governor Gordon." The reverend gentle
man took for his.text "There is a genera
tion that are pure in their own eyes, and
yet are not washed from their filthiness,"
and then he said:
"Governor Gordon, of Georgia, lately de
livered an address in Chicago, and in his
address he truthfully and eloquently ex
tolled self-respect as a ruling element of a
noble character, but his application was
something astounding. Hesaid: 'The peo
ple of the South (meaning the white peo
ple), cannot afford to admit that slavery
was wrong, or that rebellion Was disloyalty,
or that the leaders were guilty of treason;
for to admit any of these things would mar
their selr-respect Now, "Webster defines
rebellion as an attempt to overthrow the
Government of a State or country, and if
the action of the Ssuth was not rebellion,
pure and simple, what was it?
"Now listen towhatthe Times-Democrat,
of New Orleans, on December 6, has to say
about the late Jefferson Davis: 'He was
tenacious of principle, the slave ot con
science. The giant figure of the ex-Pesi-dent
of the Confederacy stalked acioss the
nineteenth century as some majestic spirit
that, strong in the conscionsness of its own
right-doing, scorned the plaudits of the
world, and lived only that in himself duty
mi;ht be deified.' Now, this is preposter
ous. Let us look at the career of Jeff
Davis. He was educated at "West Point by
the United States Government He was in
Congress and took an oath to support the
Constitntion. He was Senator twice and
took two more oaths. He was Secretary of
"War in Pierce's Cabinet, and tooK another
oath. In all he took five oaths of
loyalty to the United States Govern
ment, and this five times per
jured traitor is lauded as the slave of con
science! The man that helped to drench a

slavery with its chains, whipping posts,
auction blocks and all its attendant cruel
ties; that sanctioned the horrors of Ander
soaville, is held up to public admiration as
a man who lived only that in himself doty
The preacher then drew comparisons be
tween Davis and other traitors who had
made themselves specially infamous by their
lack of moral principle. Judas Iscariot
and BenedictArnold were men of the same
"History " said the pastor, "would place
the facts before posterity, and posterity
would judge and place Jefferson Davis m
bis proper place that of a soulless traitor,
and an offended God would judge him as an
unregenerate sinner." He also said: "Davis
had ample time to repent bis "perjuries; his
haughtiness made him doubly guilty."

trSOV A BTAIT COBKBSrONPXXT.I
Washington, December 15. The ap-J
pointment yesterday of John Hamilton
Beatty, a native of Pennsylvania, now a
citizen of Iowa, to be chief of a division in
the office of the Register of the Treasury, is
the sequel to an episode which has occas
ioned some amnsement among those who
.know the circumstances.
A few days ago Judge Holladay, of Mis
souri, appointed chief of this division by
Manning, was unexpectedly informed that
his resignation had been accepted. Unof
ficially he was given to understand that it
was because he had dispensed applejack to
himself and other employes In his room in
the Treasury building.
Holladay is a Randall (that is a tariff)
Democrat, and expected to be let alone, at
least until the last Democratic chief ot divi
sion was sacrificed.
His dismissal has, led Judge Holladay to
write a letter to Secretary Windom, iu
which he gives the details of the reception
of a jug of applejack from a friend in Vir
ginia, and how he gave just one drink
around to the other clerks, one day alter 4
PITCHING INTO OLD EOSY.
Crediting General Bosecrans and a clerk
named Stine with conniving at his removal,
Judge Holladay pays his compliments to
those gentlemen as follows:
I am not inclined to follow the fatherly ad
vice of my superior officer, General Bosecrans,
who is ripe in years and ripe in the infirmities
of age, to let It pass and let it be supposed that
I was decapitated for political reasons, when,
in the light of events, he doubtless wanted my
head, hoping thereby to stay tbe Slipping sands

ble enoneh to draw the inference that a sacri
fice was wanted, not so much to propitiate for
the sins of the ungodly as it was a
streak of spasmodic abhorrence of magni
fied impropriety, inspiring tbe aspira
tion of currying favor with the powers
that be, in ordei to remain in office, drawing
two handsome salaries. Perish the thought!
A bosom friend and adviser of his is an incom
petent and worthless clerk of the Register's
office, who was spewed from the Third Aud
itor's office because of his incompetency, a
Major without a commission, a historian with
out a history: one of Tanner's 48-bour re
raters; a clerk who does not perform his work
unless under tbe restraint of coippnlsion. and
what he does is not permitted to go ont witn
out revision and correction; upon the whole, a
garrulous person, possessed of some cunning.
DBUNK AT HIS DESK.
This friend is known to have been recently at
his desk to the dread and fear of a lady clerk
in a state of intoxication, and who may fre
quently be seen perambulating the corridors of
the Treasury, airing his importance, priding
himself on being tbe Register's pet and able to
administer to his hopes and fears.
This letter to Secretary "Windom he signs:
"With self respect, your obedient servant,
etc." The reference to"the two large salaries
drawn by General Bosecrans is a subject
that causes a great deal of gossip in the
Treasury Department The General is al
lowed to hold on to the office of Register,
though he gets about $4,000 a year as a re

"Washington, December 15. The Secret
Service Bureau of the Treasury Depart
ment has jnst received a report of the con
clusion of the longest trial of a counter
feiting case ever held in the United States.
Gashie Stein, a young and wealthy Hebrew,
of San Francisco, the keeper of a sailor's
furnishing store, was arrested last June on-
information given by a man named Seeler,
to whom Stein, tried to sell some of his
counterfeit coin several hundred dollars,
principally in $5 gold pieces. After a
hearing Stein was admitted to bail in the
sum of (3,000.
Stein spared no money to prepare for a
thorough defense. He employed the best
lawyers; hired the best witnesses; paid the
expenses of one or two witnesses against
him to other parts ot the-world; had an
other pounded beyond the point of recogni
tion when he refused to get out of the way
of the courts; spent $1,500 in distributing
photographs and circulars in regard to an
other among all the police headquarters of
the country, to discover if the witness had
not been a criminal, with the result of
tracing him to at least one penitentiary, and
that in Pennsylvania; and did things gen
erally in a style more thorough than any
other coniacker who ever stood trial in
stead of pleading guilty.
, The trial began on November 18, and was
not concluded until December 11. Every
inch of ground was fought as though it was
for a life. During the trial it was discov
ered that Stein had laid the most elaborate
plans for bribery of the jury, an'd it is be
lieved thatat least one of the 12 "good men
and true" had accepted money that was not
counterfeit from the counterfeiter.'
The publication of evidence of attempted
bribery apparently deterred any ot the jury
from voting for acquittal, and Stein, alter a
hot contest of 23 days' duration, was con
victed. His counterfeits were excellent,
and had a great circulation in British Amer
ica and China.

they have no qualifications for the work,

A Braddock Case In Which Natural Gas
Matters Are Bandied.
The Coroner's inquest on the natural gas
explosion that wrecked the house of George
Koelsch and caused the death of his 4-year-old
son was concluded at Braddock Satur
day. The explosion occurred, it will be re
membered, on November 22, and the child
died on December 6.
The finding of the Coroner's jury was that
'M gas fitting in Koelsch's nonse had been
done by George "Walters, a brother-in-law
of Koelsch, who is not a practical plumber
or gas fitter; that the gas had been turned
off by George "Walters, and then fumed on
after a coal fire had been put in a stove in
the house, and matches applied to tbe pipe
before first ascertaining in a mechanical
manner whether the pipes were sonnd; that
"William J. Householder, inspector of the
Philadelphia Company at Braddock, and
George "Walters were negligent and should
be censured for not doing their work in a
proper manner. The jury recommended
that all natural gas companies employ none
but competent, practical men as inspectors,
and that escape pies be placed on all streets
in the borough of Braddock.
