!fhe South Dakota College, Needing
' an Able Hea3,
Chooses a pittsbujIg- pastor
Rev. -Howard B. Grose, pastor of
the Fourth Avenue Baptist Church, of this
city, has received a call to the Presidency
of the State University of South Dakota.
The call wis extended on last Thursday by the
trustees of the Northwestern Institution, but
as Mr. Grose was absent from tbeWty, he did
not receire ituntil Wednesday.
The position Is an important one, and the
Dakota University is said to be the best institu
tion of the kind west of Minnesota, and as Mr.
Grose was an old acquaintance of the last
President Olson, who met his death In the
Minneapolis fire a few days ago, he is likely to
A VXGOEOITS COLLEGE.
President Olson took charge of the university
three years ago. when it was nothlngmore than
an ordinary academy. By his owa work he
raised it to the ranks of the best edncationai insti
tutions of the nation, receiving the approval of
the people and the support of the State funds.
iLast year 475 students were enrolled and a good
work was done.
Mr. Grose was an intimate .friend of Presi
dent uison lor zu years, .uewasacquainteu
with the manner in which the latter conducted
the affairs of the college, and, "having been
called to fill the vacancy, he feels' a certain re
sponsibility resting upon him to take up the
work of hirfriend and carry it on to greater
A NOTICE GIYEH.
Mr. Grose notified his congregation of the
call at the service held on Wednesday erenipg,
and stated that he would announce next Sun
day whether he would accept or not. A tele
gram from St Paul, Minn-, last night, stated
that in an interview Prof. E. M. Allen, of the
university, said the board had an assurance
which practically iustifled the belief that Mr.
Grose would accept. The latter' was seen at
his home in Oakland last night by a Dispatch
reporter, and. in answer to questions, he said:
HE TOLL ACCEPT THE HONOB.
"X hare not made up my mind folly as yet,
but I can see no reason why you may not say
that- the chances for my accepting the position
are favorable. I look upon the matter as a
anty, anaieei mat 1 ongnt to accept."
"Will the position be more remunerative than
yonr present oneT" was asked.
"I don't know. 1 am not considering that
matter. If I accept it will be because I feel an
interest in the work my old friend has done,
and I want to see the institution continue to
grow and prosper."
"If you shonld accept when would you leave
for the West?"
"I cannot ear. My second year here will be
completed in March."
HE'S ONE OF THE CEAFT.
By the elevation of Mr. H.Grose to the Presi
dency of a State university another ex-newspaper
reporter will be placed in. a prominent
position. Mr. Grose graduated Irii876 from the
university at Rochester. He became the New
York correspondent of the Chicago Tribune. A
few years later he left the employ of tlie Trib
une and became one of the editors of the New
York Examiner, a Baptist Chnrch paper. In
ISS3 he entered the ministry, taking charge of a
congregation at Poughkeepsle, N. Y. He after
ward accepted a call from a church at Youker,
where he remained until about to years ago,
when he came to Pittsburg.
HIGHLY ESTEEMED LOCALLV.
Mr. Grose has many warm friends, not only
in his own congregation, but throughout the
city, who will congratulate him and wish him
-well in his new field of labor.
When seen last night he sp6ke rery feel
ingly of the late President Olson. He
is just home from Vermillion, Dak.,
where he conducted the memorial services,
held by the university. He also conducted the
funeral services in Minneapolis. He said he
had not consulted tbe trustees of the university
In Vermillion in regard to them atter. He bad
no Intimation that a call was to be extended to
him until ie arrived home and fonnd a tele
gram awaiting him. He was taken by surprise.
He has made no reply to the Dakota peonle,
and will sot until he has decided definitely
what he will do, and also notified his congrega-
Shonld Mr. Grose acceDt the call- which in all
probability be will, it is likely he will remove to
the West in time to take charge of the univer
sity at the opening, of tbe spring term.
CABSIDAI'S EEAL H0T1YE.
He Found Colonizers In tfae'Wnrd and Fat
Tli em In tbe Soup.
Alderman Cassiday' crnsadeagainst certain 1
houses in his bailiwick was supposed to have a
political basis, but just what lay at the bottom
of the movement has been unknown until it
leaked out yesterday that 'Squire Cassiday was
working out his own salvation.
It is stated tbat nearly, 200 men were regis
tered from a number of disorderly houses in
the ward, and that they cast a vote in tbe
Bowand-Johnson contest, and were very well
prepared to repeat the performance in tbe
February election, to the great detriment of
-squire uassraays candidacy lor re-election.
Byway of a checkmate, 'Squire Cassiday bas
ordered the bouses in question to close, and in
this manner the colonizers would be frozen
oat. Nor have these ambitious early-and-ofteners
any further show of being in a position
to afford Mr. Casflday's opponent much aid
when the law requires tbat a man must have a
bona fine 60 days1 residence in a precinct. The
colonizers have been lmineised in the soup, and
the 'Squire flatters himself that he willhave
nothing more than the normal vote of tbe
A BOI STAEYING.
Inspector McKelvey Opens His Heart to a
, Flood Snfferer.
At an early hour last night a forlorn looking
boy, 10 years of age, was escorted into the
Twenty-eighth ward station by a couple of
lads about his own age. They informed In
spector McKelvey that the boy was starving,
and wanted to sleep in the station house.
Tbe little fellow, whose clothes were filthy,
and whose general appearance supported the
claim ot starvation, said that his name was
Mike Flood, and his home with bis father in a
boarding bonse on South Twenty-first street.
He declared that he had not bad anything to
eat for three days, fie did not want to go back
to the boarding house, and had been sleeping
in Keely's coal tipple. Inspector McKelvey
credited the lad's story, provided him with a
supper, pive him a bath, and will notify M. T.
Dean of the case to-day.
ON THE AEBUCKLE FARM.
If the Fourth Sand Does Mot Respond No. 3
Will be KItro-Glrcerlned.
The Arbuckle well No. 2 is in tbe Gordon
sand, and though there is a show of oil, it isnot
considered large enough at present to operate,
so the order was given to go on to the fourth
sand. Should that not be prolific the Gordon
stratum will be shaken by a dose of nltro-Iyce-nne.
It is believed the well will be a payer, bufnot
large, and it is expected that shooting will help
it, as the sand is of rather fine texture. Better
results are expected oi no. s, as it is in the
direction of the Goffy well which came in the
other day, and is a IS or S0-barrel producer.
Mr. Jamison said he expected definite news
last night, but it seems he heard nothing fur
ther. The five wells on tbe Arbuckle farm,
when all completed, will likely give a tolerably
clear Impression of the direction theproductlve
sand rock takes from tbe old gusher.

A Graeefsl Lectors Deli verea to the Pennsy
Bay on a Sahjeet of Interest.
A large crowd of people assembled at the
Pennsylvania "branch pf "the 'Young Men's
Christian Association, to listen to a practical
talk on a practical subject, entitled "Mind Yer
Eye." by Dr. F. H. Edaall. The lecture was
illustrated, which made it much more interest
ing and enjoyable. It was evident from tbe
applause that' greeted the points and the grace
ful diction of the lecturer that the people fully
appreciated the doctor's efforts.
The talk embraced five different points. The
first part was devoted to the construction of the
eye. Here the doctor elaborated on the won
derful mechanism of tbe organ. He pointed
out its power and beauty. He then skillfully
dwelt on its delicacy, and showed what atten
tion bad been given to Its protection. The doc
tor then went into an examination of the dis
eases of the eye, color blindness, when to put on
glasses and bow to preserve tbe sight. Each
point was ably handled.
The object tbe doctor had in view was, to
prove that from one organ of oar bodies we
could see tbe power of a divine hand: and rec
ognizing this fact, we ought not only to give
thanks tor this gift, but, appreciating God's
work, we ought to take proper care of it.
WASTED, A WITNESS.
A Brnkeman Who Traveled With
Trumps In Demand
There is another wail from the Jail, and this
time the complaint is not against tbe manage
ment of the institution, but a demand for a
witness to show that, although like Trow
bridge's "Vagabonds." they had traveled to
gether through all kinds of weather they were
toot criminals. Their names are George Smith
and John Ring, and they have addressed a let
ter to The Dispatch from the county jail
detailing their grievances, which seem to be
that they are accused of robbing a man at
Mansfield, Pa, last Monday night, and want to
prove an aiiDt. rcey asic lor tne orakeman
who rode with them on a stone car on last
Saturday evening. The Intentions of tbe
writers are evidently right, but tbe orthog
raphy is rather faulty, although the outlines
show a newspaper instinct by writing on
one side of the paper, and printing tbe matter
wiiu an apologetic note excusing tne cnirog
raphy possible, which note explains the neces
sity of printing the communication. The brake
man in questl on owes it 'to the two snffereis
from the law's requirements to show up and
clear them If possible from the charge of rob

VARIOUS TIEW8 TABIOUSLT TENTED
The Presbyterian Union met' last night in
the dining room of the chapel of the First
Presbyterian Church, on Wood street, where
a banquet bad been provided, and discussed
ways and means -for the dissemination of
Presbyteriauism, topics having been fur
nished some of the union by Rev. E. R.
Doneboo. In addition to clergymen, a large
portion of the business public of the two cities
was represented by the laymen present, and it
was a very good-humored crowd.
Mr. Robert Pitcaim opened the post-prandlal
exercises very briefly and shoved Dr.Purves
out with tbe request tbat he explain tbe ob
jects of the association. The speaker was
humorous at tbe opening and then began to
unre the importance of enthusiasm. This
Presbyterian Union is formed on .two convic
tions. First, if Presbyterlani8m Is worth any
thing we onght to pnsh it There is nothing too
good to push, and all merchants will agree to
the proposition. We do not wish to push
Presbyterianism in a sectarian sense, but with'
the work prosecuted by other chnrches. Fonr
fifths of Preabvterianlsm Is Christian and
'the other fifth historical spirit. Presbyte
rianism does not believe in depending on
prayer alone, but in skimming along toward
the goal praying as you go. This union is
founded on the belief that it will be helpful to
evangelical work. There is great missionary
work needed in these two cities. There are tbe
Western Theological Seminary and Publica
tion bouse which we should support. Tbe
clergymen and tbe laymen should meet and
consult upon many things which the Presby
tery cannot handle.
Mr. George A. Kelly was next called on to
tell the best means of making the un on a suc
cess. Mr. Kelly bad thought ot tackling sev
eral things, among them agnosticism, revision ot
THE TVESTMINSTEB CONFESSION
and speak-easles, and he could not mako up his
mind as to what, he had best do. One proposi
tion had been made to throw overboard the
Confession and fall Into tne arms of St. Peter's
successor, but when Mr. Kelly had weighed his
auditors he thoughttbe question might be left to
them. He then discussed success in many of
Its aspects. The first requisite is honest, hard
work, ana the work increases in all lines as the
world grows older. Tho second is self-reliance.
Tbe man who is ever running about and asking
his neighbors what he shall do, is not only
a nuisance, but generally a failure. The
great duty laid on all is to assist their fellows
and those who accumulate large fortunes, and
nothing else can be called successful. To
promote happiness should be the chief end of
President Pltcairn now called Dr. Fisher to
preside, and he got off his speech pleasantly
and called on Brother John M. Kennedy, Esq.,
but Mr. Kennedy refused to speak.
Juage Hall, of Bradford, said be was raised a
Presbyterian, and was still a sort of a hickory
one. He was somewhat In the fix of
the boy who was astonished at, some
thing he learned at Sunday school. He
said he had always known that God was a
Presbyterian, but he did not know before that
Jesus Christ was a Jew. Judge Hall thought
tbe United States Government was the product
of Scotch-Irish Presbyterianism. -He had told
Simon Cameron that he, the speafer, believed
that, the perpetuity of the Government de
pended on the perpetuation of the Scotch-Irish
Presbyterian notions, and Cameron agreed
with him. Judge Hall held that tbe Scotch
Irish PresDyterlans who .wrote the Mechlen
berg declarations of Independence furnished
Thomas Jefferson his model
Thomas Lazear, Esq., was called on, but he
said it wasn't fair to call on a layman to talk
without preparation, as preachers always go
prepared. He was proud, however, to' be a
Presbyterian, and glad to know that it was
orthodox in Pittsburg.
Rev. Dr. William P. Bhrom made a few re
marks and called on Dr. William B.
Negley, who said the laymen need help and do
not get it from the pulpit. He told how much
trouble be and others had to get a preacher to
fill a pulpit, a 'worry that was kept up until
they were stigmatized as pulpit snatchers. jz
HE WOULD MAKE IX MOBE PLEASANT.
Mr. J. H. Baldwin, thought Presbyterianism
bad need to cultivate tbe social .aide of hu
manity more than it has been done la tbe past..
Get rid of some otthatsplritthatpntdown bear
bating, not because it hurt the bear, but. be
cause it gave pleasure to tbe spectators.
Brother Baldwin wanted tbe women also to be
given moreiprominence in tbe work.
Dr. M. B. Riddle told a story ot Dr. Francis
Herrou advising him not to fly higher than be
was able to roost. Tbe speaker thought the
greatest drawback to Presbyterianism in Pitts
burg was tbat it was too much Inclined to
roost. What God and the whole country expect
ed Pittsburg to do was to wake up and let the
world know what it was and what it contained.
Dr. Riddle had been so troubled with the slow
ness of Pittsburg in some respects that he
was almost astonished to know that he had
been born on time. It made him sorry to see so
much power and goodness lying fallow. He
urged that theological students be se at mis
sionary workin these cities.
Dr. w. J. Holland called attention to the fact
that there were 18,600 communicants in Alle
gheny county in 89 churches, representing a
population of 80,000 Presbyterians straight
Presbyterians to say nothing of other varieties
separated by a wall so thin that it is scarcely
tangible. Presbyterians here weve not awake
to theirpower. There are populations of thou
sands in these cities tbat are not being con
tended for. Presbyterianism shonld gather
them in. A single Presbyterian preacher in
this city preaches to millions ot dollars,
and yet Brother Robinson. Secretary of tbe
Presbytery must occasionally report it in
debt. Dr. Holland wanted some of this wealth
extracted and, set to work.
President Pltcairn resumed the chair at 1020
o'clock, and reminded tbe audience tbat if tbe
sisters got down on this Presbyterian Union it
could not succeed, and to keen them in pood
Ijiumor, he would hurry an adjournment, so he
asaea mem to sing tne uoxoiogy ana tne Dene
diction was pronounced by Dr. W. H. Robin-

tlFUK TWO'IBAIS' IMHIM?
The Stueafcercer Kail MH1 t k Start
A bast Jnaaarvl.
The Shoenberger Nail Mill, which has been
idle for the past two years, will soon be started.
A large part of the machinery Is being oyer
hauled prior to starting thefactoryt All tbe
small machines'have been taken out and no
small nans will, be manufactured. That por
tion of the works where the small, nail ma
chines stood will be occupied by some sew
norsesnoeing zoauiuiea, Duweuuefgera mkwu
to push this department of their business, it
being one of the most profitable in the manu
factured iron trade.
This new departure on the part of Shoen
bergers Is thougbt to be significant.. It may
mean an extension of nail mills in the' Pitts
burg district. Two years ago Shoenbergers
closed down tbe mill on account of the keen
competition tbat was experienced in wneeung.
The resumption of work on the nail mill, and
tbe additional horseshoe machines 'that are
being built, will give employment to 400 extra
men; besides reviving another industry.
Tbe various machines require considerable
repair, and a small army ot machinists are sow
at work fixing them up, and putting them in
running order. It is expected that the work
will be completed at tbe beginning ot the new
year and tbe machines be in operation.
One of the reasons Sot starting the nail mill
is that they make a large number f horse
shoes. By making the nails they will, largely
increase tbelr trade, because where the one
goes the other is necessary.
In connection with increasing their horse
shoe plant, some additional furnace will bare
to be built. A row' of small furnaces will be
run around that part of the mill where the
shoes will be made, and telegraphs, ard being
constructed all over tne department.
There is some talk tbat tbe opening of the
nail mill will necessitate the erection- ot two
more steel furnaces. Though nails art small,
yet there is a large quantity of steel nsed when
there are 40 machines in operation,
Frank Hearne, tbe well-known nail manu
facturer, of Wheeling, and J. M. Vance, ex
President of the old Cut Nail Manufacturers'
Association, were In tbe city. They reported
tbe cut nail business to be In a flourishing con.

sermon was preached in the SmithHeld Street

At tbe conclusion of the services the casket

toward the wharf, followed by the immediate
relatives of the deceased in carriages.
The Daughters of Liberty, numbering 280,
marched on the sidewalk two abreast and kept
pace with the funeral cortege. On their badges
of tbe national colors was fastened a small bow
of somber black crape.
Arriving at tbe foot of Smlthfleld street the
Daughters preceded the hearse and formed a
line to the entrance of the wharf. The column
separated and the casket was bornebetween the

around it. Mr. Oscar Logaa read tbe solemn

Probably a more impressive scene was never
witnessed on the wharf than tbat of yesterday
afternoon. Tjpon the casket was placed a floral
offering in the design of the order's emblem,
the Goddess of Liberty holding the scales of

"Nearer My God to Thee" at the conclusion of
the readings and a number ot untrained voices,
belonging to emnloves around the wharf, ioined

Pointed Resolution to be Presented to
Typographical Union No. 7.
At the next meeting of Typographical Union
No. 7 a set of resolutions win be presented
from the sub-printers of this city. The resolu
tions were adopted at the meeting of subs held
last week, and are rather pointed. After la
menting the fact of there being so many subs
who do not get as muebworkas subsinotber
trades, tbe resolutions request that the tronble
be remedied. Tbe most important resolution
is he following:
That the proofresdershlps at present held by

and that chapels have styles posted up in con

EDUCATION PASSED IN EEYIEW.
Resolutions Emanating in Boston Adopted
. bj the Gathering.
IK FAY0S OF SCHOOL FBESEBYAT10H
The National Reform Association yester
day held two sessions in Old City Hall in
the interest of the public school system.
The afternoon session was presided oyer -
by Hon. Felix K. Brunot and was opened
with prayer by Key. Dr. McKelvey. Dr.
L N. Hays, made the first address in favor
of the public school system. He took ex
treme views against parochial schools and
maintained that the public school system
was a fundamental integer. of the Republic.
He deplored the miscellaneous character
of the country's population, and held that
intelligence and patriotism shonld be vigor
ously inculcated. To succeed .in perpetu
ating the country free schools were a posi
tive necessity. The speaker paid his re
spects to thpse who seek .to eliminate the Bible
from tbe schools and foreshadowed a scholastic,
millennium in very explicit terms. '
Tbe Nun of Kenmare, Miss Cnsack, spoke at
length upon the intolerance of the church
which she left. Her lecture was a repetition of
her well-known views' upon kindred occasions.
At the evening session the hall was nearly
half filled by ladles and gentlemen. Rev. Dr.
S. Collins, a retired minister of the United
Presbyterian Church, presided. While a ma
jority of the people listened attentively, there
were others, mostly young men, who entered
and left the ball at frequent intervals, tramp
ing as heavily as possible in the aisles and mak
ing much noise. On several occasions of ap
Elause of the speakers there were distinct
Harvey Henderson, the attorney, delivered
an argument in support of tbe public school
system and against the Roman Catholic
Church for its opposition to that system. The
power which tbe Pope seeks to obtain, he said,
would make him the successor of the
Csesars rather than of St. Peter. He
admitted 'that tbe Roman Catholics had
given up their former doctrine tbat ignorance
was the mother of devotion. He read from tho
Vatican decrees and from Pope- Plus' syllabus
of errors of 18G1 to show that the Roman
Chnrch is opposed to a school system controlled
entirely by civil authority, and believes no
school system to be right unless controlled by
Roman Catholics and run for the purpose of
making Roman Catholics. He opposed the
Catholic demand for a division of the public
school funds. "We do not tax people for
school purposes," he said, "because they have
children. The theory on which our school tax is
based is tbat It is the duty of the State to edu
cate all its children for tbe general good." ,
Americans believe fundamentally that the
State should not in any way interfere in relig
ious matters. To devote a part of the public
taxes to the support of denominational schools
would certainly be such an Interference." He
opposed any governmental recognition or sup
port of Roman Catholic schools on the ground
that they teach doctrines contrary to the basio
principles of tbe Government opposition to
liberty of conscience, liberty of speech, liberty
of tbe press. '
A call for Rev. Dr. C. W. Smith received no
response. Rev. David McAllister presented a
series of resolutions, copied from those recent
ly adopted in Boston, declaring the free school
system essential to tbe country's welfare: that
it is a patriotic duty to protect them from
either sectarian or atheistic aggression, and
that Judge Anderson's refusal, in Utah, to nat
uralize a Mormon is worthy of indorsement.
Tbe resolutions closed by a declaration tbat
sectarian schools should be subject to State
inspection, and that, if they are found to teach
doctrines subversive of tbe Government, there
sbonla be a law compelling attendance on the
public schools by all children.
iiarvey Henderson objected to tbe final
declaration; but the Resolutions, were adopted.
MISS CUSACE TALES.
When Miss Cusack again appeared .upon the
rostrum, she was applauded. She said the
statement had been made that she had failed
o answer a question put to her on the occasion .
oi. ner last lecture in liaiayptie -nail, a young
man asserted, the said, that Locke argued in
favor of the infallibility of tbe Pope,' 200 years
ago. She thought tbat rather remarkable, in
asmuch as Locke was a Protestant,
She then proceeded to speak of the schools.
Parochial schools were godless. The Bible had
been banished from them. Sbe,aald that the
Sisters who taught in the church schools were
ignorant. She said, "They know nothing them
selves and they teach what they know to the
children. They have established an alleged
university in wa-hlngton and they haven't a
decent professor for it" She gave her expert
encu with the schools of Ireland, which are
nearly all sectarian.
When she sat down several young men arose
one after the other, repeating tbe question
asked at the Lafayette Jiall meeting, and in
sisting that Miss Cusack had misstated and
evaded it. The question asked was said to be.
Why did Locke, 200 years ago, refer to the in
fallibility of the Pope, not supporting it, how
ever, if it were adopted only 20 years agof
Others, arose to contend with the questions,
and as there began to be confusion in the hall,
the Chairman abruptly adjourned the meeting.
A BUILDERS' TBAIN.
The Contractors Will Travel to Their
Convention In Royal Style.
The regular annual meeting of the Builders'
Exchange will be held in January. At the
meeting an attempt will be made to send dele
gates to the convention of the National Asso
ciation of Builders, to be held at St. PanI, be
ginning Jannary 27. If tbe exchange refuses
to send delegates about a half dozen builders
of this city will go on their own book. Among
them will Do W. a Sharon, editor of the Jour
nal o Building, James Murphy. T. J. Hamil

A special builders' train will' be run from
New York to SL Paul. It will have a separate
sleeping car and buffet car for tbe delegates
from each large city. The car will be run over

HOW IT INCREASES.
Another Argument for the Passage of a High
Tin Plate Tariff.
W. C. Cronemeyer, Secretary of .the Ameri
can Tinned Plate Association, yesterday re
ceived a circular from the Bureau of Statistics
about the amount of. tinned plate coming into
this country from England. '
According to the official figures, during the
current year there were' imported 729,915,972
Sounds. The value of this was $21,002,200. The
uty paid was $7,279,453. In 1S85 the figures were"
as follows: 605,559,070 tons, worth l,6ia,105. and
the dnty paid was $0,055,590. It will be seen that
the business is on the increase each year, and it
is expected tbat 1890 will show an increase ot
about 25 per cent This Is another argument to
be used on Congress in favor of advancing the
tariff blgb enough 'to shut out the foreign
