THE PTTTSBURB DISPATCH, WEDNESDAY,
Porms the Basis of a Contest
Between Druggists for
the Eight to Sell
Claim the Title in Eighty
CONFLICT IN THE PATENT OFFICE.
Two Applications Filed for the fame Style
1IISTERT OF THE SECRET FORHULE
"When Father Mollinger died he left his
estate in a rather mixed condition. Now
It is his prescriptions that are caus
ing trouble. The fight is between
two Allegheny druggists. Adolph Hepp,
who subscribes himself "Secretary
to the late Father Mollinger," has gone
into the Court of Common Pleas Hot 3 with
a bill in equity, in the name of Morris
Einstein, the East street druggist, asking
ior an injunction to restrain Alexander F.
Sawhill, of Federal street, from manufact
uring or selling the medicines as prescribed
by the late priest The bill also prays that
Sawhill be restrained from using the like
ness and signature of Father Mollinger as a
trademark in the sale of drugs.
It is alleged by Mr. Einstcm in his com
plaint that Mr. Sawhill violated the con
fidence of the priest-physician in manufac
turing for sale the Mollinger medicines.
This statement Mr. Sawhill strongly re
lutes, and answers by saying that it is he,
and he only, who has the right to com
pound and place on the market the dead
The Secretary's Ultlo to tho Prescriptions
Einstein alleges that Adolph Hepp was
for years the private and confidential sec
retary of Father Mollinger, and in return
for his faithful services the priest ar
ranged with him for the compounding
of the mysterious drugs to be Bold only for
the joint benefit of himself and Hepp. The
same arrangement provided that,immediate
ly upon the decease of Father Mollinger,
the property wxs to belong to Hepp.
In pursuance of this arrangement, Mr.
Einstein states further, the priest
beiore his death gave to Hepp two
books containing his prescriptions,
with the sole right to use his "photograph
and signature" as a trademark. It is then
claimed that Father Mollinger died before
the trade marks could be registered. On
June 27, 1S92, the plaintiff contends that
Hepp sold to him his interest in the medi
cines and trademark. From that time un
til now he claims he has been engaged in
the lawful manufacture and sale of the
drugs. The diseases enumerated in the bill
alleged to be cured by the medicines in
clude everything in the medical calendar.
A Breach of Confidence Alleged.
Mr. Einstein says that in his life time
Father Mollinger reposed confidence in the
defendant and made known to him the
formula; for compounding those medicines,
for the purpose only of filling prescriptions
personally given to patients by himself.
After Mollinger's death Sawhill, it is
charged, encaged in the manufacture
and sale of the medicines referred
to, thereby violating the dead
priest's confidence, at the same time
using the clergyman's name and likeness as
a trade marc which he advertises in the
newspapers. Such proceeding. Einstein
claims to be unlawful, and he asks the
Court to compel Sawhill to account to him
for the profits derived from the sale of all
medicines under the trade mark.
The first intimation Mr. Sawhill received
of the institution of injunction proceedings
against him was from a Dispatch re
porter, who called at his store last evening.
"I cannot imagine, I'm Bure," hesaid,"why
Mr. Einstein should try to restrain me from
selling Father Mollinger's medicines.
Eight Thousand Prescriptions on File.
"I have been filling his prescriptions for
over seven years, and have here more than
0,000 of them on file. As to betraying the
confidence of the late priest, I don't see
how that can be charged. As a matter
of fact I am the only person who
knew the formula; of the prescriptions out
side of Father Mollinger. He sent every
patient he treated to me to get medicine,
and at no time before his death did he say
that I should not use his name and signa
ture as a trademark, or that I must not con
tinue to compound and sell the medicines.
"Immediately after the priest died I went
to "Washington," D. C, to register the name
and likeness of Father Mollinger as a trade
mark. On my return my nephew told me
that Hepp had sent forhim during my ab
sence. Be proposed to him the idea of my
entering into partnership with him in
the sale of the medicines. I flatly refused
to give him any imerest in my bnsiness
and there the matter dropped. About a
week later Hepp made the same proposi
tion to Mr. Einstein and it was accepted.
Just 12 days alter I had filed my applica
tion in the Patent Office for the registration
of the trademark mentioned Mr. Einstein
filed a similar application.
Conflict In the Patent Office.
"The examiner at once detected the mat
ter and refused to grant a patent on the fac
simile of the name and picture to either of
us until testimony had been taken in the
matter to establish the question of prior
ity, xnat testimony lias not yet been
taken. The reverend physician kept no
record of his prescriptions. I had the
formula; here, and he referred to them only
""When The Dispatch reporter called at
Mr. Einstein's store, on East street, that
gentleman could not be found. The young
man who sat behind the counter said he
knew nothing of the affair, but admitted
that Mr. Hepp had formed a partnership
with Mr. Einstein. Regarding the pre
scriptions or Hepp's connection with them,
he could not say anything.
By the time the matter is fully aired in
court it is probable the makeup of the
famous prescriptions may become known to

The Coroner's Jury Give a Verdict of
Heart Rupture Caused by Alcoholism
In John McDonough's Case A Doctor
Says That the Organ Most Be Diseased
John McDonough's death was caused by
heart rupture; literally he died of a broken
heart. McDonough was a laborer and lived
in the rear of 72 "Webster avenue. For
some weeks past he had been unable to ob

he was found sitting in a chair at his home.

that his heart was ruptured and the Coro

the case, arrived at a verdict of.death from
heart rupture indured by chronic alco
holism. Reports of people dying of broken hearts
caused bv grief are not uncommon. Usu
ally these cases call forth a great
amount of sympathy as being a terrible
death. It would seem from the facts sur
rounding the death of McDonough that it is
as easy a death as could be imagined. There
was not the least trace on the face of Mc
Donough which might lead one to think he
Several doctors were asked if a person
could die of a broken heart caused by grief.
Opinions differed. Some thought that in
tense emotion could cause a rupture, others
claimed that such an effect could only be
caused by violent action.
"It is possible," said Dr. J. H. Mc
Clelland, "that intense emotion could cause
heart rupture, but it would require a weak,
diseased heart to start with. I have often
heard of cases of people dying of broken
hearts, but have never seen one. The heart
is a great twisted muscle covered with a
smooth membrane. A spasm could rupture
it. Violent action could create a spasm and
I think that an iutense strain upon one's
feelings or great emotion would have the

.What Reformers Will ITave to Contend With
In the Jew System.
LOCAL POLITICS BEGINNING TO BOOM
C. A. Burrows, Secretary of the County
Committee of the People's party, was seen
yesterday and asked what he thought of
the specimen ballot sent out by Secretary
of State Harrlty. He said: "The Baker
ballot law is intricate, incongruous and un
satisfactory to all parties concerned. Hen
sel himself doesn't understand it clearly.
All the parties are trying to make the best
way out of the difficulty, and how well they
succeed will only be known on election
day. Hensel's latest specimen ballot, as
you know, is divided into groups and
has one heading for each of the two old
parties, but only one to specify the candi
dates of all the other parties. By Hensel's
decision the candidates of parties who are
compelled to get out the ticket through
nomination papers go in one column in
alphabetical order, irrespective of the
parties, if it should take six feet of paper to
do it They mix up all the candidates of
the nomination parties, and let the Repub
lican and Democratic parties stand by
themselves. At tho heaJs of the groups
there are small spaces where a voter can
make a cross and vote the entire group.
"Work for the Fopnllte Voters.
"The Democrats and Republicans can
vote for 32 electors by making one cross on
the head of the ticket, but a People's party
man to vote the same number will have to
make 32 crosses and go to the trouble of
hunting his candidates' names out of the
long list If this is not unjust discrimina
tion, what is it?
"There is a phase of this ballot system
that appears ridiculous. It may not occur
this year but next year, should "the Amer
ican party, the Socialist-Labor party and
Victoria Woodhull come into the field, the
ballot is liable to be so long that it will re
quire a reel of paper so that it can be
manipulated in the 18-inch space given. This
vear the ballot will likely be 56 inches
long. I have been informed that the Socialist-Labor
narty has its nomination pa
pers on file. This party, with the Prohibi
tion and our own party, will have all their
candidates' names printed in one column,
unless some change is made. The ballot
will be trailing under the voter's feet while
he is marking it

Board of Examiners at Barrisburg may or

R. A. Thompson, of Indiana, Pa., State

we got 10,000 names the amount required
to have the names printed on the ballots

obtained in Allegheny county alone would
give us the right to'have our candidates'

A Big Printing Contract
The order for this county is 850,000 tick

the forms, as the heading must be changed
for each precinct in the county, and no
ticket of one precinct can be used in another.
There are not 850,000 votes in the county,
but in esch precinct CO percent more tickets
must be printed than the number of regis,
tered voters shown by the registry lists.

will be printed according to Attorney Gen
eral Hensel's letter, placing the nominees
of the Prohibition, Labor and People's
parties in a single column, or to give each
of those parties a separate column, the
same as the Republican and Democratic
nominees get The prescribed width of
the ticket, according to Mr. Hensel, is 14
inches and its length 24 inches. If alL but
the two big party nominees are placed in
one column the tickets will be five feet
long. If the Commissioners give each

Time is an important consideration in the
printing of the tickets. Under the Baker
law the printers have only seven days in

WILL USE THE MARKET
Proposition to Locate the High School
on Fifth Avenue
APPROVED BY CITY OFFICIALS.
A Conference to Be Held To-Honw to Dis
cuss the Hatter.
CHIEF BK0WN WORKING FOE TnE PLAN
There are strong indications that the
move to turn the Fifth Avenue Market
house property over to the Central Board
of Education for a High School site will
be carried to a successful conclusion. Chief
Brown, who originated the scheme, has
been industriously canvassing the situation.
All the city officials and many of the Conn
oilmen have been seen and have pledged
their support to the scheme. Mayor Gour
ley and Controller Morrow are enthusiastic
ally in favor of the High School being lo
cated at such a convenient, central location,
and have promised to do all they could to
help it along;
Chief Bigelow, who has so long held
other views upon the proper disposition
to be made of the old market house, is
not running around helping the movement
along, still having strong affiliations with
those who want to make the place a head
quarters for the Eighteenth Regiment and
Will Take the Popular Side.
The Chief is not actively opposed to the
High School plan, and if he finds a big
majority against htm, he is expected to fall
in with the popular side.
A meeting will be held in the Mayor's
office to-morrow afternoon to discuss the
question. The conference was arranged by
Chief Brown, who proposes,after the matter
has been talked over, to take all present
out to the market house and examine it
thoroughly. Those invited to the meeting
are the department chiefs, Controller Mor
row, the Board of Assessors, the President
and Secretary of the Central Board, Super
intendent Luckey, High School Superin
tendent Woods "and the whole Committee
on High School.
As far as the plan has been developed the
intention is to tear down the old market
house and rebuild in its place a more hand
some and substantial structure. A large
hall for public entertainments is one of the
features in contemplation The only out
spoken opposition to the High School
scheme in Councils thus far has come from
a couple of members of Common Council.
Mayor Gourley's Point of View.
Mayor Gourley in speaking of the project
last evening said: "The arguments for
using this property for a High School are
unanswerable and no sane man will attempt
to answer them on his convictions. In the
first place, we have the proposition that
more High School property must be had.
If the city can't use any property she now
owns for the purpose she must buy other
property. Where is the necessity for mak
ing such a purchase? Here is a large
piece of valuable ground covered with a
pile of bricks which cost a great
deal of money, standing idle and useless.
Not a cent of revenue is coming from it, no
taxes, and it has been so for several years.
The city gets no use of it and there u no
prospect of her ever doing so, unless this
plin is adopted. The city owns the ground
and by taking it for a High School site the
Dew building will be comparatively inex
pensive. There is no location that I can
think of which would be more desirable
and better suited for the purpose, and in
my judgment it would be folly to buy more
ground for a big price and let this market
property continue to stand an unsightly
monument to the municipal jobbery and
schemes ot tne past and present
