time he would be stepping into his' pslpit,
' his friend and former comrade. Prof. Todd,
would be either exulting or lamenting on
account ot the success or failure of the
?y eclipse expedition to "West Africa. "If it
' was cloudy," said the doctor, "and the ex-

' Prof. Todd will no doubt be found some-

-A'silent as the grave. If the flay was cloud-

claiming, 'By George, we've done It.'
THE NATUBALISTS HAMPEEED.
"In the interests of science, as well as for
the sake ot my friend Todd, I hope the as
tronomical work of the expedition will be a
success, because I apprehend that the work

"Prof. G. Brown Goode, the Assistant
Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution in
Washington, has kindly sent me a letter
wtrritten by Mr. Brown from the Cape Verde
islands, in which he bewails the fact that
'the stay in Angola is to be so brief.
Mr. Chatelain, the interpreter of the ex
pedition, who lived there for three years,
says that the region is an excellent one for
..the collector. The doctor here said that
from his knowledge of the subject Mr.
Chatelain's opinion was undoubtedly cor
rect, althongh Mr. Chatelain is not a
naturalist. Continuing, he said:
"Upon the occasion of their call at the
Cape Verde Islands, the party succeeded in
making some collections of fishes and
shells. The probability is that at each of
' the stops which will be made after leaving
Angola, and which will be at Cape Town,
,Ascension Islands, St Helena, St Paul's
Bocks and Barbadoes, the Cape Verde ex
perience will be repeated, and quite a mass
of interesting material brought together.
For my part I am very thankful that I
did riot go, as many things have happened
which have demonstrated that for me to

Post 1S8 Hold Their .Annual memorial
A, beautiful and touching service was
that held by Lieutenant James M, Lysle,
Post 028, G. A. E., in the Arch Btreet M.
E. Church, Allegheny, yesterday after
noon. Six members of the post have died
during the year. It was in commemoration
of the death of these" comrades that the
memorial Service was held; ,
Back of the chancel were placed six chairs,
draped in black, bearing the names of Will
iam B. Smith, Company B, First Pennsyl
vania Artillery. James E. Crow, Company
G, One Hundred and Ninety-third Pennsyl
vania Volunteer's; James. Swails, Company
G, Eighty-third Pennsylvania Volunteers;
Henry Eberle, Company B, Twenty-eighth
Pennsylvania Volunteers; George Zieg,
Ctfmpany B, Sixty-first Pennsylvania Vol
unteers; John Glover, Park Battery. The
chairs were flanked on either side by waving
tropical plants and the post, State and na
tional flags bound to their staffs with broad
bands ot crepe. The central portion of the
church was reserved for the veterans and
friends of the deceased comrades.
The services opened with a solemn dirge
by Prof. Priqhard.. Adjutant Louis Horst
then read the records of the dead. As the
closing words of tb'&records were pronounced
the swelling notes of the bugle sounding
"taps" filled the church with sweet melody.
The post choir rendered .several selections.
The address was delivered by Department
Commander Thomas J. Stewart He said:
"There is no monument of marble, no shaft
of granite, no tablet of bronze exposed to
the gaze to express our grief, but there is
this silent and all-conclusive proof of our
affection for the memory of our dead com
rades. Words ome unbidden at such a
time to signify our love for the dead. None
but generous words can be said to pay the
last tribute tf affection, the admiration of
their valor and patriotism. Six empty
chairs, which mean six deaths, six graves,
six dead soldiers and six new recruits up
When in answer to the call, they went
forward to the front to defend our homes,
our country and our flag, to fight for the
honor and truth of mankind,they showed by
their devotion they were true as steel.
Human sacrifice had to be made, but not
until thousands had starved to death in
rebel prisons, thousands had filled unknown
graves and every privation was endured,
was peace declared at Appomattox and lib
erty proclaimed through all the hand. For
this they fought, and now these whom we
mourn to-day h'ave'at last been laid to rest,
having lived long enough to see their coun
try the grandest one on earth.

Roughen and Catchers Meet to Consider
the Question of Wages.
Trie roughen .and catchers employed in
some of the Soutbside mills held a meeting
yesterday in Imperial Hall. Nothing of a
definite character could be ascertained
relative to what transpired, but as it is
known that the men are dissatisfied with
their present earnings, it is saidjbysome
that the meeting was held to concert some
means looking to an increase. One member
said that a conference was being held to
consider the scale to be laid before the
Amalgamated Association when the consid
eration or next year s wage-rates' comes up.
The rougbers, catchers and heaters, and
trie common laborers employed In connection,
with their work, are hired by the roller, who
pays them according to a stated scale.
Boughers and catchers are each paid 12U
per cent of Nthe value of the work, while the
heater receives 25 per cent, leaving the roller
CO per cent, ont of which he has to pay the
common laborer. It is said that the roughers
and catchers claim that they should receive
as much as the heaters, a claim which the
roller will hardly concede, since it would
leave him but 25 percent out of which to
pay his other labor and for profit
Secretary Martin, of the "Amalgamated
Association of Iron and Steel Workers, said
yesterdaytfiat the proper course for the men
to purine was to discuss the question in their
lodges and submit any propositions they
should arrive at to the association for inser
tion in the annual programme. -1M

Fallston, across the river, and in Fallston
the works or W. P. Townsend & Co., manufact
urers of rivets and wire nails, and the machine
built, oveb THE'LOCK."
On the New Brighton side of the river a por
tion ot the keg factory of M..-T. S. Kennedy
Is built on top of the lower lock, the lock now
being used for a f onndation Mr. Bobert Ken
nedy says that a canal would probably run him
ont of his New Brighton site;' but he would be
willing to go for the general good, provided he
waspaid enough for it. The canal would not ben
efit his works inuclUs he gets all his timber up
tho Allegheny and Monongahela rivers, ana
ships principally to theIast. He thlnlts the
State should pay liberally toward the construc
tion ol a ship canat Another railroad along
the Beaver and Mahoning valleys. Mr. Ken
nedy thinks, will pay at once npon its comple
tion, because the present railroads can pot ne
gro to take all the business tbat is offered.
Mr., Bentley, of Bcntley A Gerwig. of the
twine mill, says that tho construction of a ship
canal might ruin his plant, as it certainly
would, If the canal came along the old route;
but ho want to see it built His tonnage is
not heavy, but it Is extensive, and many ol tne
shipments are made to the West. To get more
favorable freight rates thecompany frequently
ships goods to Erie by rail during the summer
months, and then reships by schooners or lake
tlonal Government and the State should build
the canal in conjunction with each other. One,
great advantage of a ship canal would be that
in case of war with Canada war vessels could
bebniltat Wttsbnrg and sent upthxoughjtne
canal to the lakes. . .
The two flour mills do not have an extensive
business, and get but little of thelr grain from
the West ,
PLANING AND OIHEB MILLS.
Ot the two lumber and planing mill firms,
McBonnel & McLain do a business ot 20.00U.OOO
feet of lumber per year' from the Northwest,
and they are anxious to see a ship canal In order
to bnng down freight rates.
Tho Logan 4 Strobridgo Iron Company, so
Mr. C. G. Robinson, the general manager, says,
would not be much .aflected by a ship canal, as'
their shipments are chiefly to the iSast and
South.' They do a business of about seven
tons per day for every day in the year. A canal
might be of some benefit to them in getting in
iron, coke, copper and lumber, bnt not in the
way of outgoing freight Mr. Robinson thinks
the State should pay part of the cost ol tne
The Standard Horse Nail Works would not
be greatly benefited directly by a canal, but
Mr. Charles Merrick, the President of the com
pany, wants to see one built He thinks the
Government should do all the work, as the
State could not afford to do it, and the canal
would be of national and not merely local or
Mr. Myler, of Dawes fc Myler. manufactur
ers of hollow ware, says that the canal would
be of great benefit to them in getting in iron.
The tonnage or the factory Is about SJi tons
per day coming in, and the same amount going
out but the outgoing freight; cousistlng of
finished goods, will take three times as many
cars as the incoming freight whleh is heavy
and compact It costs about 60 cents a ton on
incoming freight, as against about SO on tho
outgoing classes. Both Mr. Myler and Mr.
Dawes heartily favor the State paying a large
part of the cost of the canal.
AS TO GLASS AND SEWEE PIPE.
Of tbe two glass works in New Brighton the
Ditbridge lS"the larger, employing between 250
and 500 hands. Tbe only way that the manager
thinks the canal would be of direct benefit to
the works would be on Western shipments, and
they are not heavy. He wants the Government
to pay all the cost
At the New Brighton Glass Company's office
Mr. C. A Bigelelr said that a canal, or any
thing else that would give competitive freight
tariffs would be welcomed, and he favored
State aid to the canaL Tbe capacity of the
works is about one and a half carloads per day.
Tbe biggest concern in New Brighton is tbe
Plttsbnnr Sewer Pine Works. It is about a
mile and a half up Blockhouse run, on which
are also located all tbree ot tbe potteries, tbe
fire brick yards and tbe New Brighton Glass
Factory. The freight of tbe sewer pine works
will average 10 'carloads per day, of outgoing
and incoming freight Mr. Brown, the man
ager, Is not decided upon the question ot State
The tbree potteries are: Everson, Sherwood
& Barker, with 400 carloads a year of output
(Mr. Barker wants a canal, but thinks the snr
plns in tbe National treasnry should pay for It,
and not tbe State); Sherwood Bros., with an
output of a carload per day, and favoring
lares State aid, and tbe Enterprise Pottery
Company, with 150 carloads per year, with. Mr.
F. H.jgmehfield. the treasurer, believing in
State 'aid. Mr. Btucbfieia says xhe railroad
companies wantthe eartb, and discriminate so
much aeainst such f relgbt as potteries furnish,
that he wants a canal.
ALL PAVOB STATE AID.
Of the three fire brick yards, that of A.F.
Smith & Co. is the largest - and 'Ships
aboa 20,000 brick per day, besides large
quantities ot raw clay, much of which goes to
Canada. Mr. Smith wants the State to do a
good-deal toward building the canal.
Orer In Fallston Mr. Townsend, of W P.
Townsend & Co., rivets and wire nails.
Bays their business amounts to-about 8,000 tons
per year. Tbty are nsing natural gas; but
when they are compelled to use coal, which will
be soon, tbe i'.nnage will be greater. He has no
opinion to express about State aid.
M. Darragn. of the machine shops, has his
foundry at Bridgewater, and the tonnage bere
is light He wants a ship canal, for several
reasons, hut thinks It Is Impracticable because
the dams would have to be so high tbat it
would drown out some of the valuable low
lands along the route. He favors State aid. '
