DEMOCRATS MARCH IN THE EAST END
For the first time this fall it was really
cold last night but politically speaking it
was red hot If one could hare hovered
over Pittsburg in a balloon between 7
o'clock and midnight the aeronaut would
have concluded that the city was one gigan
tic tin horn, with red fire and the rataplan
of countless drums for trimmings.
Tne campaign of education slunk ont of
sight, and the pent-up enthusiasm ot the
partisans broke out. General apathy vras
not in it The rank and file were out for a
rip-roaring time, and paraderi and specta
tors alike shouted themselves hoarse. In
the downtown district the crowds were im
mense. Fifth avenue was practically im
passable from 7 o'clock till the Republican
parade had passed over three hours later.
Politics swept everything else out of sight
The theaters could not draw the people
sway from the closing tableaux of a singular
campaien; there were more empty seats
then people in aU of them. The great stores
which usually cannot accommodate the
swarms of shoppers were practically deserted
and, as one of the leading Fifth avenue
Greeting the Bead of the Parade.
storekeepers remarked, "You couldn't get
the people away lrom the curb if you gave
your goods away."
Plenty of Bands and Danners.
The clubs marching to and fro before the
parades began, with bands in full blast and
banners flying, kept the crowds amused.
Good nature characterized them all, though
sobrietv was not always coincident Cam
paign cries were heard loudly for the first
time this vear. A favorite cry with the
2'epublicans was, "Won, won, we have
won: Jour years more for Harrison!"
and lrom the Democrats the shout earner
"Grover! Grover! He's in clover." Down
town the yells for Harrison swamped all
else, but out in the East End where the
Democrats massed in force for a final rally
the Clevelandites did most of the shouting.
The Democratic clubs for the most part
went out to East Liberty by rail, but a good
sized remnant seized upon the cars of the
Citizens' line and made a rapid but sono
rons progress in them ont Penn avenue,
bnrnine red fire as they went and shouting
all the way.
The Republican parade was the biggest,
the most brilliant and the most enthusiastic
ot the campaign. There were more men in
line, more bands, more banners, more horns,
more shonting, more distinguished leaders.
Major E. A. Montooth had cause to be
proud of the army he commanded, and a
gallant sight indeed were the marshal and
his staff as they rode at the head of the pro
cession. There were many cheers for the
gallant Major by name, and his chief-of-stafT,
the omnipresent Dr. Alexander jE.
3rcCanuless, came in for an ovation too.
The cars were stopned on Fifth avenue
A Mast From Mammoth Tin Morns.
while the parade was passing, and a large
force of police, with here and there at
points where the worst pressure was ex
pected a wire fence, kept the crowds back.
Eager Crowds at Crossings.
There were the usual contests between
spectators and police for possession of the
roadway at the Smitfield street and Market
street crossings, but the advance guard of
police, mounted on big white horses, acted
as a clearing wedge to shove back the
mob. No serious accidents marred the
parade. It was a eigantic success.
Similarly in the Eat End, though of
course without such enormous crowds, the
Democrats put in their last licks with a
-ill. In point of enthusiasm and organi
sation their last parade was their best also,
and the streets of the East End pulsated
vith flaming torches and infectious music
for a 2ood three hours. From the Point to
East Liberty, in fact the pent-up political
energy of the town, with a lot of
loose" enthusiasm from the outside,
was let loose. If the shouts and
marching, ihe patient waiting and
the persistent horn-blowing, the talk upon
politics exclusively, the betting and guess
ing, are indices of anything they mean that
the voters are going to the polls in greater
numbers this vear than ever in spite of
their previous'sllence. As a foreshadow.
Ins of the interest taken in the election by

officers around the station. They were

there was little disorder.

THE EAST END PARADE.
Democratic Marchers Slake a Good Show

the Rendezvous In Street Cars Con
siderable Enthusiasm and Red Fire.
There was an enthusiastic Democratic
demonstration in the East End last night,
as a wind up of the campaign, so far as
street demonstrations are concerned. It
had been decided that the divisions should
be lormed as heretofore, but several Alle
gheny and out of town clubs that took part
in former parades did not turn out so that
it was not necessary to have but one di
vision. The people of the East End turned out
almost eu masse and intense enthusiasm
prevailed all along the route. Bed fire was
burned in profusion and the clubs were
given an ovation all along the line.
The formation ot the parade was delayed
until nearly 10 o'clock, owing to the fact
that the Woods' Hun and Southside clubs
had to go to the East End on street cars.
The column was formed on Penn avenue,
right resting on South Highland. It moved
in the following order:

Democratic Marching Clubs Get Into a
Fight With Spectators.
While the Democratic parade was passing
the Nineteenth ward police station last
night Frank Smith, a member of the
Twelfth Ward Democratic Club, stuck a
stick of red fire in the face of a bystander,
burning him badly. He retaliated by pick
ing up a block of stone and hitting
Smith on the head, inflicting a deep
cash. This started a fight, and the J. C
O'Donnell Cadets went to the assistance of
the Twelfth Ward club, and a general fight
ensued. The police interfered and put a
stop to it, and arrested Pat McGilllg, a
member of the Twelfth Ward Club; Sam
Miiler, colored, a spectator, who had
on his penon a pair of brass
knucklers and a dagger; W. S. Garrison,
also a spectator. They were taken to No.
G police station. The police have the names
of a dozen who participated in the melee
and will place tnem under arrest. Smith
lives on Penn avenue and was removed to
his home. A number were badly used up
in the fieht, but got away before the police
could arrest them.

tion of Labor at Homestead.
DID NOT DECLARE A BOYCOTT.
The Seceding Finishers Cause Uncompli
CURRENT EVENTS IV LABOR CIRCUS
The Executive Council of the American
Federation of Labor met in this city yester
day. It consisted of President Samuel
Gompers, Secretary Chris Evans and Treas
urer John B. Lennon. They arrived on an
early train from New York City, and went
immediately to tne headquarters of the
Amalgamated Association. They went into,
consultation with the officers of that organi
zation, and discussed the Homestead strike
and the preseut condition of affairs until
In the afternoon, in company with ex
President Wm.Weighe and other officials of
the association, they went to Homestead
and addressed the locked-out men at thejr
usual Saturday meeting. On their return
to this city another conference was held
with the Amalgamated officials. They left
for New York on the evening train.
Sizing Up the Situation.
The officers of the Federation of Labor
had come here on a special invitation ofthe
Amalgamated Association to confer and
size np the situation, and if possible adopt
some means of bringing the present strug
gle to a close. The relations of the Amal
gamated Association and Federation have
been of the friendliest during the present
struggle and they have been acting con
jointly to bring the Homestead fight to a
President Gompers when asked last night
as to the object of his visit and the prob
able result of the conference between the
officers of the tno organizations, said: "I
am simply here to look over the ground
and see if there is any change in the lock
out at Homestead. There is no significance
to be attached to the visit, and we have only
the power to advise and recommend what is
considered as the best course to be pursued.
I was warmly received at Homestead, and
there expressed my views on the situation,
so that it is needless to repeat them here. I
found little apparent change from my
former visit, and must say the men are
making a remarkable fie lit Each one seems
to be actuated with sufficient determination
to never give in.
Mo Change of Programme Adopted.
"Ka I do not think there will be any
change of plan adopted as a result of the
conference to-day. The men deny that
there has been any desertions, and I had to
take their word, as I was not on the ground
long enough to find out, but from appear
ances there is no indications of any return
ing to work. Should the men working In
any of the departments return it would be
a serious blow to the others whoare bravely
holding out. The mechanics are said to be
considering the advisability ot going back
to work, but I do not think they will.
"As to the effect ot the finishers form
ing a new union, I am inclined to think the
movement will fall through. As it is, they
are pursuing a very peculiar course to say
the least, in trying to secede at this time.
They have never notified the old order
that they were going to leave it. Then
again, why didn't they wait until the end
ot the time when the present scale would
expire, and go about the formation of a
union in a mauly way? But I
have too much confidence in the
loyalty of the men to the Amalgamated to
believe that they will leave it now. Should
they do so, however, and the finishers
form a separate union that would be suc
cessful, It would be a blow to organized
labor, as both would Burely lose by the
move. Men work against their own in
terests to separate at the present timeand
my wish would be that they stay together.
Doesn't L,Ike the Treason Charges.
"I find, however, that the men are keenly
feeling the way they are being treated in
the cases against them. They do not find
fault with the law, but in the wav it is
being administered. I consider the cases of
treason a travesty on justice, and if it were
not for their serious natuVe would be in
clined to treat them lightly. But it seems
the most will' be made of tne cases, and are
giving the Homestead men some trouble.
I find this to be evident and as the time
draws near I believe it will be more so."
Mr. Gompers refused to discuss politic,
saying that the Federation was a non-partisan
political body and that he did not want
to say anything on the subject.
In the conference the declaring of a boy
cott on the product of the Carnegie mills
was discussed, but no action was taken.
The opinion of some of the members present
was expressed afterward, and they believed
that no boycott would be declared. Though
no decisive action was apparently agreed
upon, the conference is considered as sig
nificant. What move will be made next Is
not known, but it is probable that some
thing will be done in a short time that will
bring this long drawn struggle to a close.
OLD POSITIONS ASKED FOB.
Twenty-Seven of the Locked-Ont Men at
Homestead Ask for Work.
The indications for a serious break in the
ranks of the Homestead men on Monday
are very noticable. Yesterday afternoon 27
of the old men called at the company offices,
and expressed desire to return to work if
given their old positions. Among those
men were several who have been
prominent in the conduct of the
strike, and to-night they were
arguing the matter on street corners, urg
ing others to do likewise. They made no
attempt at concealment and stated they felt
that it was uselese to remain out further.
They said if any reasonable encouragement
could be given them between now and Mon
day that the men could win, they would
continue .out, but otherwise they
would certainly go back to work, for they
were Homesteaders and desired to remain
in the town; their property was there and
their only means ot livelihood while they
remained there was at the steel works.
Members of the Advisory Committee pre
serve hopeful attitudes, but do not deny
that there are grave indications of weaken
ing which may result in inroads in their
hitherto almost unbroken ranks.
Officials Return Home.
President W. J. Smith and Secretary W,

President Gompers Tells the Homestead
Looked-Ont Men ''Not to Give Up the
Fight The lams Case and Finishers'
Union Discussed Other Speakers.
The presence of the national offioers of
the American Federation of Labor at this
afternoon's meeting of locked-out men at
Homestead packed the rink. George Hat
field presided and Harry Bayne was secre
tary. President Samuel Gompers was the
first speaker and was cordially greeted. He
said: "Men of Homestead, three weeks
have passed since my former visit to your
borough, and the prediction. made at that
time that you were ready to return to work
at the terms of the Carnegie Steel Com
pany, Ltd., have been given the He by your
presence here to-day. I desire first to deny
as false the imputation that the Amalga
mated Association officials are keeping yon
out of work. I know them personally and
they are all honorable men.
''When this struggle commenced it was
not a' question with the Amalgamated
Association. Its officers did not declare
that you should leave the mill but it was
the result of an unanimous vote on your
part Now, alter a fight of four months,
will you give in? Cries of no. If you
stand together to the end the Carnegie Steel
Company must recognize organized labor.
By what right does any company rule that
its employes must surrender their right to
organize as a condition of employment?
It is certainly by vour labornlone that they
are able to stand in the position of em
ployers. The wage earner produces all the
wealth and he has grown tired providing
all and receiving nothing.
"Men want to improve their conditions,
and whenever capital tries to oppress them
strife will ensue. I doubt if ever a body of
workingmen were offered a wholesale re
duction in wages to which they peacefully
submitted. I defy anyone to show me where
more frequent and more sweeping reduc
tions have been imposed than on yon men
Concerning the lams ease, he said the
punishment was unjust and the verdict
forced by a judge who met Carnegie lawyers
every day. "Could you expect anything
from a judge who insulted ajury because it
did not bring in the verdict be wanted
sooner?" continued Mr. Gompers. "Can
you expect justice for members of your Ad
visory Committee from such a judge?"
Many crimes have been committed in the
name of justice. He denounced the new
finishers' organization as the highest treason.
Secretary Chris Evans followed in a simi
lar strain. Treasurer John B. Lennon said
that the Homestead strike had done more
for laboring men than anything since the
French Bevolution. Ex-President Will
iam Weihe was roundly cheered when he
arose to speak. He said he was highly
gratified at the end of his official career to
find the men of Homestead so united. He
deplored the finishers' split and hoped it
would aoon be cemented. Mr. David Lynch
closed the meeting with a characteristic
Armor Plate to Be Tested.

EXUDED THC POLICE.
A Slick Traveling Man Does Up the
Seventh Avenue Hotel.
Herman Valentine, formerly ofan Eastern
clothing, house, but now of Butler, has been
arrested in Chicago on complaint ot the
Bever House. He is wanted for defrauding
the Seventh Avenue Hotel, of Pittsburg,
and Louis Traxler, a Butler merchant, by
means of worthless checks.

JUWPED ON COUNCILS.
Lively Episode at a Public Meeting
to Discuss the Proposed
ISSUE OP ALLEGHENY CITY BONDS.
Mayor Kennedy Will Not Consider Motions
for or Against,
THE CITI'8 MOST PROMINENT MEN TALK
Three hundred of Allegheny's best citi
zens met in Carnegie Hall last night to dis
cuss the bond issue. Leading men of the
Northside expressed their sentiments, and
all but one was in iavor of improving the
city. Dr. Pitcairn was the man
who opposed the betterment of
the city. ' He attacked the Coun
cilmanic forces of Allegheny in a rough
shod manner. This was not pleasant to D.
B. Oliver, for he had a son in Councils.
Mr. Oliver took the matter np and insisted
that the city's affairs were honestly man
aged. Mayor Kennedy presided at the meeting
and made the opening address. He said
that as a citizen of Allegheny he favored
the issuing of bonds because it would be to
the best interests of the citv, and he
wished only to state as a supplement to
what he had said to the people in his
circular sent out a few days ago that a num
ber of people had the impression the pro
posed 52,250,000 woith of bonds were to be
issued all at one time. This he said was
erroneous, as they would be issued only as
needed and it would be five years before
the entire amount would be used. In re
gard to the lighting of the city by elec
tricity he said he was heartily in favor of
doing away with the high lights, and more
arc lights should be placed on the streets.
This would be a great saving of money and
muoh better light would be secured.
A Disgrace to the City.
Speaking of sewers, he said the Butcher
run sewer was a disgrace to the city, and be
sides it was dangerous and likely to cave in
like it did during the flood of 1884. He
said the principal arguments against the
issuing of the bonds is that the money
would not be properly expended, and in an
swer to this he said that entire new set of
Councilmen, both Select and Common, are
to be elected next February, and it is with
in the power of the people to elect men
whom they cau trust. In regard to
the letting of contracts the low
est and best bidder always gets
them, and if there is any favoritism or dis
honesty manifested any citizen has the
right to appeal to the courts for redress. A
committee ot five could be appointed to act
as controllers, and see that the expenditure
of the money is in accord with the proper
requirements. Mr. Kennedy said in con
clusion that when he left the Mayor's office
next spring to become a private citizen
again he intended to see that the taxes he
paid were properly expended, as any citizen
has a right to do, and he expressed the hope
that the citizens of Allegheny would vote
for the issuance of the bonds.
Lewis McMullen then addressed the
meeting. He lamented the fact that Alle
gheny is gradually falling behind all other
cities of her size and advantages, and at
tributed it to the bad condition of her
streets and water, and the petty jealousies
and strifes which exist among ner citizens.
Blast Be Up and Doing.
"If we wish to make our city progressive
and np with the times," he said, "we've got
to be up and doing. I for one am in favor
of the issning ot the bonds. We waut bet
ter water, better streets and better lignts,
aud the only way we can get them is to
issue the bond's and let our pos
terity help pay them. They will derive
more benefit from the improvements than
we will, and it is but fair that they bear
most of the burden of the taxation. This
is purely a matter of business and not for
spoils, as some of our citizens would have
us believe. Let us then act as business
men should. We need the proposed im
provements, and we need the money with
which to execute them. Vote for the bonds
and then vote for the Councilmen who will
see -that the money received on them is
properly expended. It is said that 100,000
citizens of this city are satisfied with the
condition of our water, streets and lights.
I do not believe it. There are 1,500 vacant
houses in Allegheny, and no right thinking
citizen can be satisfied who knows this."
Dr. K. V. Pitcairn, who opposes the bond
issue, was the next speaker. He denounced
the members of Allegheny Councils as
spoilsmen, and said that the moment one
was elected he beean to puff up with im
portance and plan how to get rich at the
David B. Oliver at this point rose in the
audience and said to the chairman: "My
son is a Councilman, and I know he is
neither a spoilsman nor is he puffed up
with importance. Dr. Pitcairn s remarks
are insulting to me, and I will not put ud
Caused Considerable Excitement.
By this time a score of people were on
their feet shonting: "Orderl" "Put him
Mayor Kennedy vigorously rapped for
order, and when the audience became qnlet
Dr. Pitcairn went on. He said that there
was not half as much wrong with the water
of Allegheny, as those who favored the bond
issue would have the people believe, and
that the spoilers were ravenously waiting
to get a slice of that 52,230,000.
D. T; Watson, A. M. Marshall, James
B. Scott, Bev. B. F. Woodburn, Colonel T.
P. Roberts, "W. T. Bradburrv, James W.
Drape, T. W. Day, W. L. Bo'ggs and D. B.
Oliver afterwards talked. They all favored
the issuing of bonds.
A gentleman moved that the meeting in
dorse the bond issue nnd each man present
Sledge himself to vote for it and use his in
uence for the issue. Mayor Kennedy de
clared motion out of order as he said it had
been agreed that no resolution for or against
would be entertained.

M0LLIE CAMP AGAIN
Arrested In Allegheny While Stealing a
. . Sealskin Sacque Tripped UptheFloor-
Walker-A Lively Chase Through the
Crowds on Federal Street.
An important capture was mide in Alle
gheny last evening. About 9 o'clock a
young woman, accompanied by a small
girl, entered Boggs & Buhl's store, and re
quested to be shown to the cloak depart
ment They were turned over to sales
lady. The elder of the two requested
to be shown some sealskin sacques.
The saleslady suggested that she
did not want to buy. The woman
insisted, however, and was conducted to the
fur apartment The clerk became suspt
cious of their actions and concluded to
watch them closely. After showing several
cloaks, which were examined very critically
the clerk discovered that while seemingly
examining the goods the supposed customer
was qnietly secreting a sacqne valued at
ISO under the front of her basque.
After it had disappeared from view the
"What are yon doing with that sacque?"
"Jfothing," was the answer, and throw
ing down the sacque she had in her hands
the woman turned to go.
"Oh, I mean the one under your basque."
"I have none."
"Yes, you have," and the lady seized the
secreted article and pulled it out at the
same time calling for assistance.
Captain A. B. Boggs, the floor manager,
hearing the cry ran quickly towards them.
The woman broke away from the clerk and
ktarted for the street door. Meeting Captain
Boggs half way, she adroitly gave him the
foot and in a twinkling he was on his back.
The woman darted out of the door and up
Federal street towards the Market house.
Captain Boggs bad regained his feet and
followed her so closely that just as she
reached the door of the Market house he
caught hold of her. Captain Schatzman
was attracted by the commotion, and
upon receiving an explanation placed
the woman under arrest and
took her to. the Central station,
where she gave the name of Mollie Davis.
Superintendent Muth, however, recoznized
her as Mollie Camp, the well known shop
lifter. He said that there was a clear ease
against her and he proposed to push it
The little companion of the woman made
her escape during the excitement, but the
police officials hope to capture her to-day.
