DEATH OE A PBETTY GIRL.
The Soldier Has Been Captured and
Is Supposed to Be Serving
TWO TEARS FOFw HIS DESERTION.
Franstl ITill EaTe Bim Punished for
More fcerions Offense.
HE SOW HAS A EESPOXSIBTiE POSITION
'Ihe man who deserted Eva Bloch in this
city has an avenger after him. Everybody
remembers the tragic suicide of this young
Kussian girl two years ago in the ladies'
room at Union station, after being deserted
by her lover, a Russian army officer, who
blipped away from her en the train. An
immense sensation was caused by the pub
lication of the story at that time.
Miss Bloch belonged to an aristocratic
fnmily. Only one man turned up in the
city who had known her or her people in
Russia. It was Arnold Franski. then a
resident of the Southside. He had known
her father well in Russia and was much
aflected by her death. While collecting
money to defray the expense of Bending the
body home, Franski beiug then in rather
straightened circumstances, was arrested in
He olaims his arrest was caused by his
enemies. At first he was charged with be
ing a suspicious person and afterwards two
charges of obtaining money under false pre
tenses were preferred against him. At the
time of his arrest he had collected 16 and
this was taken from him at the lockup.
Xow Holds a Res pons! bio Position.
Last Slay, Franski secured a position
with K. C Frick, to whom he demonstrated
his skill as a veterinary surgeon and a man
of all-around intelligence. Mn. Frick gave
the care of all the horses and mules in his
coke interests about Jit Pleasant to Frans
ki, and in a short time gave him con
siderable control of the men as well.
After the Homestead strike and the firm
decided to pnt in non-union men, Franski
had created such a good impression that he
was placed in charge of the foreigners em
ployed in the milL He says he has now a
position as interpreter and overseer over
1,109 men, which pays him S250 per month.
As a result of his prosperity Franski re
cently brought his family over from Russia,
They came direct from the 6ame city where
Eva Bloch's family reside and brought the
first information he had received that her
betrayer had been captured and is now
icrving two years in prison for desertion.
No "Woman's Rights In Russia.
Franski was overjoyed when he heard of
the capture of Ihe soldier-Lothario, but the
light sentence imposed did not satisfy him.
Franski decided to make him suffer fur
ther for his crime. Under the laws of
Russia a man is not held accountable for
abusing the confidence of a woman, she be
ing the only one whom the law attects. iva
Bloch's lover had therefore nothing to an
swer for but his desertion from the army,
and being of the nobility his offense was
treated lightly. Ordinarily deserters are
icr more harshly dealt with.
Transki was in the city last night paying
n viElt to Warden McAleese, to whom he is
greatly attached. Being questioned as to
the Eva Bloch case he imparted the infor
mation given above, adding that he had
knowledge of certain other matters relat
ing to the Russian officer and intended to
bring him to justice.
"The matter I refer to has no connection
with the Eva Bloch affair," he continued.
"It is oi a much graver nature, in Russia.
Ho, I don't need to bring him to this coun
try. The Inws of Russia are severe even to
the nobility under certain circumstances."
trill Ai engo Era Bloch's Death.
"Then you mean to avenge the death of
Eva Bloch?" was asked.
"I da I can do it and I will. I cannot
explain all to you now, bat in a few weeks,
maybe a month, I can speak more fully. I
am not sure this soldier is even in jail.
Money will do anything in Russia, there is
so little of it. It'is likely this fellow is off
enjoying himself instead of serving his time
os a common soldier would do. But
wherever he is he will be brought to pun
ishment some day if I live."
Franski is a remarkably handsome big
fellow about 40 years of age, of rugged con
stitution, and looks as if he might live
another 40 years. He is very bitter to a
member of the Allegheny detective iorce
whom be accuses of taking the money he
had collected for Eva Bloch and falling
either to return it or to appear at his trial
to show that it had not been expended as
the prosecution claimed.

CONCEALED IN THE WOODS.
Cliildren Discover the Plunder Taken From
an East End Residence Two Men With
Records Arrested Other Suburban Rob
beries Reported to the Police.
Two men have been placed under arrest
whom the police claim are the robbers re
cently operating in the East End. They
were captured Thursday, giving the names
of John Doran and Richard Swan. Both
positively deny their guilt. Doran
was wearing an overcoat stolen from the
house of E. A. Weart, G537 Ellsworth
avenue, the previous night, when arrested
at the Academy.
All the goods stolen from Mr. Weart's
house have been recovered. Two little girls
were playing in the woods near Shadyside
station yesterday morning and in kicking
through a pile of fallen leave uncovered a
sealskin sacque. In removingit they brought
to view a lot of silverware and clothing.
It was subsequently found that the stuff
was that stolen from Mr. Weart's house,
approximating 51,000 in value.
Inspector McLaughlin and Captain
Whitehouse, who have been working on the
case, say that on the night of the robberv,
alter getting their plunder together, the
thieves sat down in the basement, ate
everything eatable they could find and then
drank a quart of whiskv, the empty bottle
being found in the kitchen next morning.
It is supposed they tarried over the bottle
until nearly daybreak and were then afraid
to carry their plunder to the city, hiding it
where found, with the intention of return
ing for it the next night.
At first it was supposed there were sev
eral thieves in the job, but the police are
now satisfied there were only two. Both
prisoners have police records. Doran is
onlv 18 years old." Swan is 27. The chisel
with which he forced his'way into Weart's
house wis found in his quarters in the
Yellow Row. Swan has a reputation among
Jhe police for being quick to shoot. When
arrested, to allay his suspicions, he was
told he was wanted for keeping a speak
easy. When searched at Central station a
44-calibrc loaded revoler was found on him.
It is claimed there is plenty of evidence to
convict both the prisoners.
An attempted robbery of Brinton station,
on the Pennsylvania Railroad, was reported
yesterday. In the morning when the sta
tion was opened the safe was found to be
badly battered, the combination knob be
ing broken off, but the attempt had been
fruitless. Entrance to the building was
gained by removing a panel lrom the door.
The railroad detectives are working on the
case. A number of burglaries along the
Pennsylvania lines have been reported
recently. Tramps are credited with them

THE CLOSING BATTLES.
Republicans a I.Ittle Nervous, hat Will Get
New Tork by 10,000 Votrs.
Colonel John Y. Culyer, the Brooklyn
engineer, arrived in the city last evening to
resume work on the plans ot beautifying
Schenley Park. He put np at the Du
quesue, and will be in the city for the bal
ance of the month. The Colonel, to save
time, adopted Blaine's idea of pairing his
vote with a Democrat. In this way it is
not lost to his party in a State where it is
"I think the Republicans will carry New
York by 10,000," he said. "They always do
cet a littte rattled in the closing days of a
campaign. I am told that the organization
in the interior ot the State is strong, and I
expect to see our peple come down to the
Harlem with a big majority. In the
Fassett contest Piatt and Miller were
not pulling together, and many of
the farmers didn't register. That is how
we lost the Governorship. This vear the
party is harmonious and the people inter
ested. I can't persuade myself that Hill
and Tammany are seriously supporting
Cleveland. They haven't much to gain if

feated. On the other hand with Piatt and
Miller, everything depends on the success
of Harrison. The Federal officeholders also
are a powerful factor and must not be over
looked." "The Colonel laughed at the report that

GUFFEY IS CONFIDENT.
He Says Both Sides Claim Victory but He
Thinks Grover Will Win.
J. M. Guffey returned from Hew York
yesterday where he had been in consulta
tion with national politicians. He is con
fident of Mr. Cleveland's election.
Mr. Gufiey said: "Both the Republican
and Democratic National Committees talk
very confidently of the general result, but
it is conceded on all sides that Cleveland
will carry New York, and the Democrats
claim more than an even chance to carry
Indiana, and with the tide generally over
the country in Cleveland's favor, the out
look for his election is certainly very good.
In faet, it is hardly possible for the win
ner of New York's 36 votes to be defeated.
The talk of Harrison making inroads on the
electoral vote of the South does not seem
to be very well founded.
"From the reports which come to me of
the gallant fight Sipe is making in the
Twenty-fourth Congressional district, he
will win out if the Democrats only go to
the polls on election day and cast their

THE PROBLEM SOLYED.
Elliot Has a Flan to Check
WHERE INSPECTION SHOULD BE.
tit Thinks European Ports Are the Place
SUPERINTENDENT BAKER ON IIEAI.TII
Chief Elliott, of the Pittsburg Depart
ment of Charities, thinks Mr. Grubb, of
the Allegheny department, was justified in
returning to their native land Augustine
Schnitzkl and his wife, because they were
paupers and had gotten Into America un
lawfully. Mr. Elliot says he is almost
daily brought in contact with similar
Chief Elliot backed up these statements
by producing his report for '91 and '92,
which has never been published yet. It
shows that 139 foreign paupers had applied
for aid. Of the number 94 were cared for.
Forty-five were returned to their countries,
and four of these were insane. Thirty-four
of the parties were under medical care most
of the time and 24 had to be sent to the poor
farm. Five of the 139 died and had to be
burled at the city's expense, All of them
became a charge to Pittsburg within a year
niter they landed. The United States
treasury paid the department 5366 69 for
the passage of 49 returned home.
The Examination on the Wrong Side.
"This Is the way the thing runs along all
the time," said the Chief, "and it will until
we have better immigration laws. The
trouble is we have the inspection on the
wrong side of the water. The Government
yearly pays out big sums of money to offi
cers to inspect the immigrants. I have
stood in Castle Garden and watched them
at work. Their inspection is run on a
bird's-eye-view plan. The foreigners are
hustled through a narrow passage
and the officers glance at them as
they pass. Sometimes they are
made to sign their names if they
can write. With an examining station at
all ine European ports the immigration
problem would be solved and the United
States saved vast sums of money, while her
cities would not be filled with the off-scour-Ings
of foreign lands. If such a plan wero
adopted the examination should be made
rigid. The applicant would first have to
pass a good physical examination, and the
age would play an important part.
More Rigid Lines Should Re Drawn.
"No one over 60 years under those con
ditions should be admitted. There is
another restriction which shonld be looked
after. Too many of the immigrants are
criminals and a'properly managed Inspec
tion on the other side of the ocean would
keep this class out of America. Colonel
Stone's bill Is a very good one, but it will
not do the work, because this point is not
"No one knows anything about immigra
tion and pauperism until they get into a
position similar to mine. All sorts of
tricks are being played on the United
States both for the gain of individuals and
foreign powers. I know of several Italian
bankers who have made as high as 510,000,
000 a rear at the expense of America. They
have agents at work in the poorer districts
of that country all the time, telling the
people ot the riches of this country.
After they are worked up to a cer
tain slage the banker's man offers
to land the Italians in Pittsburg or Chicago
for 575. By arrangements with steamship
companies these poorest, lowest of Italy's
sons are set down in our city at a profit of
560 per head. This is going on every day.
Some of Ireland's Tricks.
"A number of the countries in Europe al
low 'their criminals to go free if they
will promise to come to America.
The other day I received a pa
per printed rin Ireland. There was'
an advertisement in it from one of the alms
houses, or work houses, as they call them
thereT The manager wanted bids from
steamship companies for the transportation
of 100 paupers to America. A little over a
year ago one ot these institutions was en
tirely cleaned out and its 640 inmates ship
ped to the United States.
"We have had at the city home for the
past 12 years a Swedish girl. The girl
when hardly Its was cast adrift by her
parents. She came to America, and being
in delicate health she songht aid fiom the
department The young lady was sent to
the home. There, by brooding over her
sins, she became insane and has never re
covered. Daily we have calls from young
girls like her, but have to refuse many ot
them. The reason I took charge of her is
a peculiar one. She had the most beauti
ful head of hair I ever saw, and I .think It
was through her flowing tresses that my
heart softened. To-day her hair is as snow
white as mine."

Superintendent Baker Afraid of Cholera In
Uie Spring Scarlatina in the Public
Schools New Laws Needed for the
Treatment of Diphtheria.
For the first week in November,1892, there
has not been a case of smallpox in Pitts
burg. Superintendent Baker, of the Health
Bureau, was very much elated over this
fact yesterday. In speaking about mat
ters relative to his department, he
said: "All danger of cholera visiting
Pittsburg this year is past. Conditions
are such, however, that it will be an easy
matter for the disease to make its way into
the city in the spring. We are preparing
for it. Already we are having dirty places
about the city cleaned up. Throughthe
winter I intend to keep a strict watch, and
all filth found will be removed.
"A number of phsiclans are causing us
considerable trouble. There is some scarla
tina in the city. When the subjects get the
least bit better the doctors give them cer
tificates allowing them to return to school.
In this way the disease is spread. Tho law
says that no child suffering with scarlitina
shall be allowed to enter school until it has
been convalescent for SO days. I am going
to see that this law Is carried out and will
prosecute the first principal of a school who
accepts one of these certificates.
"There is a law that Pennsylvania should
have. I consider diphtheria and scarlet
fever as contagious diseases, and think they
should be treated in the same manner as
smallpox. In Pittsburg, when there is a
case of either, friends visit the house and
the disease is spread about. If the patient
dies a public funeral is held. This is all
wrong. I think we should have a law com
pelling a house where either disease, exists
to be placarded. The patient should be re
moved to a plague house, and in case of
death the funeral should occur at once and
be strictly private."

Michael Sent Sues His- Wife Because1 She
Refused mm Money. She Struck Him
With a Pitcher Afraid of Being Pois
oned. Michael Sent, a laborer in A. M. Byers
Southside mills, is In a peck of trouble.
He appeared before Alderman Hartman
yesterday and swore out a warrant against
his wife on a charge of assault and battery,
claiming that she not only abused him, but
a few days before hit him over the head
with a pitcher, and he has not been able to
hear anything since. The side ot his head
was badly swollen and ho seemed to take
his treatment very much to heart. He
said he would be satisfied with nothing bnt
The trouble in his bouse, he said, has
been going'on for a long time, but reached
the climax on Columbus Day, when he
asked his wife for ,15 cents with which to
buy a badge, so as to take part in the
parade and G cents to buy a glass of beer.
His wife is master of the 'bouse and takes
case of the finances. The request was re
fused, on the ground that he wanted to buy
something to poison her, as she had been
fearful of his putting her out of the way.
He had been working until 10 o'clock and
had only hastened home in time to take
part in the parade. Her refusal made him
angry and a quarrel ensued. Finding
he could have no badge he de
termined to remain until after dinner
before going out to celebrate Columbus
Day. After abusing his wife severely, he
settled down for a wait of two hours for a
dinner that never came, because his wife
was now thoroughly aroused and refused
to prepare anything to eat. Softening
under his earnest pleadings she finally gave
him 15 cents, and he went out to catch the
parade. He spent the afternoon in the
city and in the evening returned home.
Soon after they got into another quarrel,
and she struck him over the head with a
pitcher that completely knocked him out.
She is a powerful woman, weighing over
200 pounds, and is his complete master, as
he weighs less than 120 pounds. He has
been auietly working since, but claims that
his wife treats him so cruelly that he can
not get along with her.
While speaking of the case, he said:
"There has always been more or less jeal
ousy between us, but we have never had
much trouble. About two years ago she
sued me for attempting to poison ber, but
the matter was fixed up. Ever since she
has been suspicions, and often accuses me
of doing what is not right." The woman
was arrested. The case will be heard next

Chairman Gripp's Figures on Allegheny

The Chairman was interrupted by an
Allegheny member, who wanted to know
'what pay could be guaranteed to watchers
at the polls on election day. He was
answered that the watchers who worked out
of loyalty to the party were the most re
liable ones, and the only kind that should
be put ou guard. "I have given the party
ten hours a day for the past six weeks with
out pay," continued Mr. Gripp, "and while
I don't say it boastfully, I think it Is an
example which should be followed by true
party workers' always. The gentlemen in
Allegheny should be able, with the large
roll of city employes over there, to get
plenty of watchers."
"But," continued the interrogator, "we
have an ordinance which prohibits city em
ployes from taking any part in election
There was a twinkle In the Chairman's
eye as he replied: "We have a similar or
dinance in this city, but there is no law
which can stop a citizen from participating
in an election, whether an officeholder or
employe of the city."

to Chairman Gripp and Secretary Miller for

worked industriously in his own behalf
and was confident ot winning until a week
ago when a report was circulated that
Johns had collected money from speak
easy keepers in Unlontown, and had appro
priated the same to his personal uses.
Investigated by the Government.
The report was generally circulated and
it finally reached the ears of Acting Col
lector Mitchell. He reported the case to
the department and an investigation was
ordered. Two officers were sent to Union
town from Washington to complete the in
quiry. The officers first devoted themselves to
locating the origin of the report. They soon
found the authority for the charges against
Mr. John's, and they found that the charges
had been based on two receipts, each for 58,
which Johns was alleged to have given a
Uniontown citizen for money paid him.
The record of Mr. Johns' movements, sworn
to before he had become a candidate, were
found, aud it was established that Johns
was not in Unlontown the day the receipts
were alleged to have been given. The re
ceipts, however appeared to have been given
On Thursday last the Government officials
turned to Pittsburg and reported to Act
ing Collector Mitchell just what they had
found. They returned to him the receipts
alleged to have been given by Johns as
well as the certified records of his move
ments. Johns Makes a Denial.
Johns was ordered to report to Collector
Mitchell on Friday. He did report. He
said he had never "given a receipt for any
money paid him for the Government, and
he insisted that the receipts held acainst
him were forgeries. He admitted that the
signature was remarkably like his own, but
he was anxious to have the signature sub
mitted to the examination of experts.
Yesterday Collector Mitchell called in
three handwriting experts. Tbey compared
the signature on the two receipts with over
200 ot Mr. John's signatures appended to
reports to the Collector. In fact, they put
the writing to the severest possible test and
each in turn decided that the signatures had
been forged and that the forgeries had been
committed by a clever hand,
"J. have investigated the case thor
oughly," Collector Mitchell said last night.
"The evidence was strong against Mr. Johns
at the outioos:, but the best authorities we
can find Bay he is innocent. We know who
is responsible for the charges against him
and I will certainly institute proceedings
charging the party responsible with cou
spiracy and forgery.,'

Father Molllnger Heirs Intend to fell

break of Cholera Expected in the
Spring Smoke a Preventive.
Fred Mollinger, of Arnheim, and Captain
F. P. A. Mollinger, of Amsterdam, the
nephews and heirs of Father Mollinger,
left for Chicago last evening to see the
Windy City. The "young men are very in
telligent and are much pleased with their
visit to Pittsburg. They spent yesterday
afternoon watching pedestrians pass the
Schlosscr, and they were charmed with the
"Tbe Pittsburg girls," said Fred, "are
very beautiful. This is a big city, and I am
glad I'came here. The homes I saw in the
East End are very fine. "Ve don't have so
many street cars in our cities as you have
here. This is the first time I have been in
the United States. Coming over on the
vessel we met a number of people who
knew'Father Mollinger, and had been in
the chapel on ML Troy. I was surprised
that the sick came from such great distances
to see him.
'.'We will be back br Wednesday for the
sale of the household effects. The heirs
have decided not to give the relics to the
church, and they will be sold, but when
and on what terms has not been decided.
That has been left to us,
and we will come to some con
clusion before we return home in Decem
ber. The other heirs have given us power
of attorney' to buy the relics and sell them
again. The chapel and the relics cost
Father Mollinger over 1250,000. He got
considerable money from the family estate
In Europe as one of the heirs. The indica
tions are that we wyi take the relics back
to Holland where such things are valued
more highly by Catholics than in America.
There is no contest between the heirs, and
the estate will be settled up. as speedily as
possible under the Pennsylvania laws.
Gregor Meyer, the administrator, has until
next June to sell the property."
The nephews said another outbreak of
cholera is expected In Europe next spring.
They added there was no danger of the dis
ease taking hold in Pittsburg on account of
the smoke. Captain Mollinger slated that
the cholera can't stand a smoky atmosphere,
and the curse of the city may yet prove its
A HEW HOSPITAL SCHEME,
Major Denniston Wants a City Appropria
tion for Their Benefit.
City Treasurer Denniston announces a
benefit to be held in the Bijou Theater
about the middle of December. for the West
Penn Hospital which is considerably in
debt. In talking of hospitals yesterday the
Major declared bis opinion that the city
should provide an annual appropriation for
hospitals. It shonld be optional with each
sick or injured person subject to the city's
expense which hospital he should be taken
to, and each hospital paid by the city for
the cases they cared for. This would be
fairer, the Major says, than the present sys
tem of giving one or two hospitals all the
city cases, and better than the building of
a city hospital, which would not only be ex
pensive to maintain, but would have a dis
couraging effect on the existing hospitals
which have a hard time In keeping np un
der their present patronage.
A PLEA FROM WESTERN PENNSYL
TANLV For Representation on the Supreme
The fnllowinsr paper has been largely
signed bv representative men of all parties
In the Western Pennsylvania oil region.
The addiess is the spontaneous setting
forth of a lair demand whlcn many people,
especially those connected with tne oil
industiy, will appreciato and approve. Itlg
While tho Constitution of Pennsylvania
recognizes the Justnesi of the principle that
the Supreme Judlolary should be lifted
above partisan politics, tho usae In former
times has also recognized the right of all
localities or the State to duo representation
upon the bench or its biguest court. Under
the former wise usage members were se
lected with a special view to the sections
nnrepiesented, so that,,taken as a whole,
the bench would be, through residence and
association, familiar with the diversified In
terests o( the people throughout tho 'Com
monwealth. Although the present Supreme Bench Is
ably constituted, It is not Inirly representa
tive territorially. Six of Its seven members
live in the eastern part of tho State, five of
them in the extreme eastern part. Tho sev
enth. Justice Heydrlck, temporarily a mem
ber by appointment, is the only one from
tbe western part. It ho should not be con
tinued on the bench by election, the entire
western portion of Peunsvlvania will bo
without a lesident representative in the
court of last lesort.
In the industrial, mineral and manufact
uring conditions of the region there are ob
vious reasons why that part of the Stato
west of the mountains should bo lopreseaied
on the Supreme Bench. Especially is this
true of tho vast petioleum interest. The ln-
tiicaciesoi tne oil business, the varying
dlfllfultles, the new questions which "con
stantly arise, aie known In the great oil le
gion which stretches across tho entire
western portion of the State. The needs of
this region are such as to unrentlv demand
a representative In tho Supremo Court who
