The lease of the Fifth Avenue
Market House for High
It Will Come Up for Final Passage in
Councils Kext Monday.
CHIEF BROWN SAYS IT WILL PASS
The Controller's Car Tar Bill Indefinitely
BTEEET IMPROYEIIENTS RECOMMENDED
Br a unanimous vote, the Pnblio "Works
Committee yesterday approved the ordi
nance authorizing the ase of the Fifth ave
nue market house as a Iliph School annex
The ordinance will come up in Councils for
nassige next Monday. It authorizes the
JIavor to execute a lease for 99 years to the
Ceitral Board of Education.
Cnief Brown said last evening he had no
doubt Councils will pass the bilL Bigelow
js opposed to it, but he will hardly make a
uiorous fight against it, leaving that for
the military organizations who are anxious
to get possession. The lease to the military
prepared last spring is still in the hands of
the Finance Committee, and nnless a spe
cial meeting is called for the purpose be
tween now and Monday is not likely to be
completed. Chief Bigelow, however.claims
he has authority to make a lease without
any action by that committee.
Property Holders Want the Schools.
The people in the vicinity of the Market
House are all anxious that the property
shall be leased for a High School. Even
tho ewbo at first favored the armory project
bare now come to the conclusion that the
property is better situated for school than
military purposes and are anxious that it be
so used. They argue, as do Chief Brown,
the Mayor and others, that this property is
too valuable to be thrown away, as it would
practically be if given up for an armory;
that much less valuable ground could be se
cured for the military, which would answer
their purpose ut as well, and that if this
property is used as an armory the city will
be at the expense of buying land for a High
School, which may cost even more than
this is worth.
More Boom In the Central Board.
The Central Board will soon have to be
furnished with new quarters, their present
ones on Market street being entirely too
small. If the market house is leased to the
board they can have all their offices there,
and give the city a fine big hall for meetings
and entertainments as well. To go to the
Fast End for a site, as Chief Bigelow sug
gests, the board would still have to rent
offices, as their business is of such a charac
ter they must be located in the business sec
tion. Controller Morrow's ordinance taxing Te
hicp including street cars, was laid over
indefinitely, without discussion.
Ordinances n ere approved for the grading
and paving of Meadow and Keystone streets,
Fox street and Forty-third street; sewers on
Havs street, Berlin alley, Boquet street,
De Sola street, Lawn and Locke streets,
Chauney and Sheridan streets; opening
HIS SUFFERING ENDED.
John A. Mnsgrave Dies After a Long and
John A. Musgrave died yesterday at the
Homeopathic Hospital of rheumatism after
an illness covering a period of 12 years.
Mr. Musgrave began life as a messencer on
the Cleveland and PittsOurg Kailroad. By
strict attention he arose step by step until
he became the local agent in this city. In
1882, when all the Pennsylvania company's
lines running northwest were consolidated,
he was made cashier, which position he was
compelled to resign shortly after, on ac
count of ill health. He also took an active
interest in politics, and served several
termi in Councils. He was a member of
the Fire Commission, and to his activity
was due a great number of reforms in the
Mr. Musgrave was born in this citv in
1846, and married a daughter of the late
Captain Beese. The funeral services will
take place from Samson's Chapel, on Sixth
avenue, to-morrow afternoon at 2 o'clock.

A meeting of the captains of the various

AGBEED TO A CHANGE.
Chief Brown Adopts a Suggestion From the
' Mayor on the Czarneckl Contract
The Mayor and Chief Brown held a con
ference yesterday, which resulted in a
change in the five-year contract for remov
ing dead animals in the city, so that if the
city desires she can annnl the contract on
three months' notice. Dr. Czarnecki, who
was awarded the contract, will probably
agree. If not, Councils will not approve
the award. The reason for the change is
the probability that a new garbage system
for the whole city will be, adopted within
the next year.

DANGER IN THE CABLE.
An Iron Wagon Closed the Slot on a Cable
Line-A Car Is Wrecked Many Pas
sengers Hurt-The Gripman Suffers
A peculiar accident, the first of its kind
in the history of the Citizens' Traction line
if not in the city, occurred yesterday tore
noon on Penn avenue. A heavy iron wagon
crossed Twenty-second street and turned
on 'to the cable line. In doing so one side
of the slot V the conduit was pushed against
the other and completely olosed. When
car No. 113 came along, as there was no
room for the grip to slide through,it stopped
with a jerk. The shock was so great that
the front truck was demolished and all the
glass in the window was shaken out.
. There were abont a dozen passengers on
the car. They were badly shaken up and
all more or less injured. The broken glass was
thrown among them which cut all severely
about the race and bands, .trans: vinceni,
the gripman suffered the most, and was
severely Injured. His head was cut, his
right arm disabled, and by being thrown
against the brake suffered severe injuries.
Conductor Irwin and Thomas A. Rose,
who were standing on the rear platform,
were thrown against the car and badly
shaken up. The passengers to suffer the
worst were: Miss Marv Seeley, Andrew
Miller, "V. A. Burger," William Layton
and William Sutton. They were bruised
and cut by the broken glass.
Excitement ran high and the street was
blocked by the crowd attracted to the
place. Travel was blockaded for a time.
The car was taken to the shed by No. 211
when the broken truck grip and brake were
repaired. A force of men at once went to
nork to repair the damage to the rail. It
was found that two of the rods which held
the slot rails apart had been broken. A
force of men bad been on 'the line during
morning opening the rails, so as to allow
the grip to pass through and had ust passed
this point before the accident The car was
coineatthe rate of six miles an hour, and
the gripman said last night that the pas
sengers had made a miraculous escape.
DRUGGED TO DEATH.
Minnie XJppencott, While Suffering, Takes
Enough. Chloroform Vo Kill Several
People It Was Not Suicide Her Body
Taken to Ber Home at Camden.
Mrs. Minnie Lippencott yesterday died
from the results of an overdose of chloro
form taken last Tnesday. She boarded at
No. 11 Scott street She has been suffering
from a constitntlonal disease. At times
she would grow greatly discouraged.
Last Tuesday night she attended the the
ater and after going home became hysterical.
Her friends did all they could for her and
finally she dropped off into a heavy sleep.
The next morning she did not awake. Her
heavy breathing alarmed the other in
mates and a physician was called in who,
after a great deal of work, aroused ber.
It wa found she had taken an overdose
of the drug to make her sleep and kill the
pain. On Wednesday she was consoious
but her nerves had been paralyzed by the
dose and she was unable to move. She
lingered all day in that condition and ditd
.at midnight The proprietress of the house
had feared fatal results and telegraphed to
Camden to the relatives. A sister of the
deceased arrived yesterday and last night
started home with the remains.
Mrs. Lippencott hnd been in this city
only two months. Her maiden name was
Minnie Downs, and her family in Camden
are respectable folks. She had a son 7
vears oid, who has been living with her
sister at Camden. She was a person of con
siderable beauty and agreeable disposition.
At first it was reported as a case of
suicide, but the Coroner, after a careful in
vestigation, decided to the contrary. It
was found that to relieve the pain to which
she was subject the woman bad used so
much of a chloroform preparation that ber
system had become accustomed to it and she
could take enough to kill several people
without visible effect The Coroner thinks
she overestimated her ability to stand the
drug. The inquest will ba concluded to

ONLY TWO GOOD BIDS
EeceiTed by Chief Elliot for the New
Poor Farm Building?.
TWO BIDDERS PRESENT NO BONDS.
A. Balph and the Economite Society's
Proposals Are Regular.
THE CONTRACT IS KOT YET AWARDED
Only two proper proposals were presented
yesterday for the erection of the new Poor
Farm buildings. One was from the Econo
mite Society, as The Dispatch exclusively
announced yesterday, and the other from C.
A. Balph, of this city. J. P. Leach and
W. F. McCarthy each presented bids, but
their papers were unaccompanied by bonds,
as required by the advertisement These
were ruled out by Chief Elliot and City At
torney Moreland, who conducted the open
ing of the bids. Both were higher than the
The specifications for the work were
classified into four separate propositions.
The Economite Society's bid was made in
the name of B. F. Crow. Trustees Duss
and Henrioi were the bondsmen for the
$500,000 guarantee required. They bid
$537,892 on the No. 1 specifications, $533,
537 on No. 2, H87.467 on No. 3 and $370,
741 on No. 4. G A. Balph's bid was f 502,
000 on No. 1, J6.500 off that figure for No..2,
534,000 off for No. 3 and 5108,400 off for No.
4. A local trust company is on Balph's
bond for 5500,000.
It will be seen Balph is considerably
below the Economltes on the first three
pecifications, but they are the lowest on
the fourth. The second specification diners
from the first in that the buildings are
smaller in every respect, the rooms being 6
inches smaller each way.
Cutting Down the, Cost
The third specification provides for 9-inch
walls instead of 13-inch as under the first,
certain of the buildings are smaller, the
foundations lighter and a number of other
points are given where a saving can be
made. Specification No. 4 is the same as
No. 2, except that steam heating and elec
tric lighting apparatus are not included. ,
Chief Elliot announced that he would
take a day or two to have the bids tabulated
and the bonds examined before letting the
contract He said he was sorry there were
not more bidders. The figures were higher
than he expected, and before closing a con
tract he will scale down in several features
to reduce the cost. Some time ago he stated
that the total improvement of tne new farm
would cost about 5425,000. If he sticks to
this the buildings will cost less than 5400,
000, as there are a number of other improve
ments to' be made.
Trustee Duss, of the -Economite Society,
was among the audience of bidders and
spectators who filled tho room while the
proposals were being read. He had no
comments to make on the figures.
"If we get this contract," said he, "we
will be able to carry it out with satisfaction
to the city. Our society is in a position to
do this kind of work and we propose to fol
low it up as stated by The Dispatch this
morning. We have a'big tract of timber
land and two good sawmills in Warren
countv. a planing mill, a stone quarry.
a brickyard and a good stoct of bricks on
hand at Economy.
Willing; to Use Their Advantages.
"We have also, right along the railroad
at Economy, a bank of the finest quality of
sand to be fonnd in this part ot the State.
Why should we not endeavor to make use
of all these advantages?" '
"Would you employ the men of your so
ciety on the work?"
"To a large extent, yea We have 200
men whom we could use, though, unless
compelled to by a strike or the ridiculously
short time in which this work is to be done,
we would only employ a portion of them.
It will be almost a work of magio to put up
these buildings within the specified time."
"Do you intend to follow np this kind ot
"Certainly. We are developing a spirit
of improvement at Economy. It we get
this contract we will not seek any more un
til it has been completed. If we can't get
it we will look around for others at once.
We will not, of course, go after a contract
for stone buildings suoli as the Carnegie
library is to be, but wherever there U a
brick and frame structure where we can con
veniently use the materials at our disposal
we will go after the work.
"The time was when the people for many
miles around our community, who bad an old
horse or a cow or anything else that had
served its usefulness, would take it to
Economy and sell it Things have changed
now. Yon can't impose on the Economltes
with such old baits now. We want the
best We have the money to pay for the
best, and we intend to have it, even six
toed chickens, if we like them."

Surrendered Bimsslf to the Police
at Monongahela City. .
GRIEVING OYER HIS POSITION.
Was a Good Friend of Charles Bprlggs,
the Dead .Elevator Boy.
WILL AEK FOR BAIL AFTER THE TEEDICT
Charles Minshall came to this city last
night in company with Chief of Police
Cleary, of Monongahela City. A telegram
from Brownsville yesterday morning noti
fied Superintendent O'Mara that Minshall
was at Monongahela City, and a detective
was sent up for him, but he had started for
Pittsburg'before the detective's arrival.
Minshall is the commercial traveler who,
by prematurely starting an elevator at the
Hotel Anderson last Saturday, accidentally
caused the death of the elevator boy,
Charles Spriggs, or DeCourey, as he was
better known. On Minshall's arrival in the
city he was met by a representative of a
leading wholesale grocery firm, who offered
to go on his bond until the inquest is fin
ished. The offer was made to Coroner
MoDowell, but be stated it was im
possible for him to accept bail
under the circumstances. The Cor
oner notified Superintendent O'Mara
that he must produce Minshall at
the inquest, whicb at the latter's request
has been changed from to-morrow to this
morning at 11 o'clock. This meant that
the prisoner must be locked up at Central
station. "He was much affected when he
heard it, offering to pay the expense of an
officer to guard him at a hotel if permitted.
Superintendent O'Mara informed him it
could not be done, but agreed to place him
in a comfortable room at the station in
stead of an ordinary celL
Minshall is greatly worried about the
death of Spriggs. He is actually a jolly,
good-natnred man, but is now cast down,
and has little to say except in explanation
of the accident
"No one living regrets this so much as
l, ne said last night "1 should not nave
gone away, but I was led to believe poor
Charley would recover. When I left I
expected to return to-morrow anyhow, to
see how be was and do what I could for
him. I have been a frequent guest
at the Anderson for years, and I
knew the boy well. We alVvays joked
and chaffed each other and were the best of
friends. On Saturday wben I stepped on'
the elevator be was outside on the floor, but
started in after me. When I got in, sup
posing he was Inside, I pulled the rope and.
started ine car. juy nacK was turned to
him and I did not know my mistake until I
heard him scream. The rest yon know. I
don't know what I can do."
The inquest was begun yesterday. Min
shall will be given an opportunity to testify
to-day and that will close the case. It is
considered certain the jury will return a
verdict of involuntary manslaughter. An
application for bail will be made'as soon as
a verdict is rendered.
Stunned by the Collision.
Shortly after 5 o'clock yesterday evening
car No. 116 of the Pleasant Valley line
struck Stevenson Modelsbip, an 8-year-old
newsboy whose home is on Carlstreet,at the
corner of Ohio and Sandusky streets, Alle

did not recover consciousness for several
hours. He was taken to the Allegheny
