with Homestead. They read in the news

NEWS OP THE GREAT LABOR WORLD
ElrLAINIKG TOE EESULT IN OHIO
The Democratic candidates for Federal
offices in "Western Pennsylvania are getting
to be as thick as bees in a hive. The latest
man to announce himself as after the
United States District Attorneyship is
Frank P. lams, a prominent member of the
Allegheny county bar. Jlr. lams has been
on a still bunt since the resnlt of the elec
tion was known, and he now has petitions
that are being liberally signed in circula
tion in Greene, Fayette, Allegheny and
Washington counties. Mr. lams if also a
member of the bar in each county men
tioned. Frank lams is well known in the Twenty
fourth Congressional district, ne with
drew in favor of Sipe and nominated 'him
for Congress in the convention. His
brother Jim is Chairman ofthe Greene coun
ty Democratic Committee, and the lams in
fluence is said to be largely responsible for
Sipe's majority of 2,40-1 in the countv. the
largest ever given a Congressman in that
sectiun. The father of'T. C Lazear once
carried the county for Congress by 2,100:
"VI bo Will Get Sipe's Support?
It is understood that Mr. lams will have
the support of Sipe and his friends claim
that Harrity will not be acains: him.
Charles Fagan is supposed to reprekent the
Harritj wing, but that is disputed. Jlr.
lams is the attorney for J. M. Guffey, and
the Harrity people will undonbtly try to
class him as a Guffey man. His friends
state that he is not tied to anr faction. It
is believed that the fight for tie place lies
between lams and Fagan, unless a strong
candidate should loom up lroni some of the
Ex-United S-ates District Attorney Al
len, of Erie, who has just been defeated for
Congressman at large, may want the job
acain, as Mr. Lark in is after the poitoffice.
Mr.Martin, of Xew Castle, who was beaten
for Judge bv ex-Senator Gree-, of Butler, is
spoken of lor the place, but the ret is noth
ing to indicate that either Allen or he will
be candidates. J. J. Miller, of the local
bar. has not accounced himself, but he is
telling his friends not to pledge themselves.
He is expected to declare himself in a few
Mr. lams is going into the canvats in a
systematic way. His office was visited yes
terday by numerous workers from "the
Twenty-fourth district, and they are all en
thusiastic for him.
Figuring on Harrlty'g Pnll.
To vary the monotonv the bickers of
John Kearns, the onlv Democrative Repre
sentative elected in Pittsburg, are pushintr
liim for United States Marshal against Tim
O'Learr. The one thing that is puzzling
all the Democrats is how much of a pull
will Mr. Hamty have with the administra
tion. Many Democrats and the Republican
politicians think that he will control the
Federal patronage in the cities, especially
in Pittsburg and Philadelphia, and he will
leave the min.ll postoffices and the other
minor offices to be filled by the Congress
men. Those who take this view claim he
will be more of a dictator than Senator
Quav, and that he will take care of his
friends to the exclusion of his enemies. It
Is argued that the Democratic majority in
the House is so large that it n.akes little
difference whether the three Congressmen
in Western Pennsylvania sulk or not
On the other hand, the anti-Harrity peo
ple are confident that the three Congress
men will have more influence with Mr.
Cleveland than the politicians ofthe Chair
man's f-cliool. While they admit that Mr.
Sipe and .Toe Sibley, of he Erie-Crawford
district, are novices In politics to some ex
tent, they believethat the President will
rcfirn to the rule ignored by Harrison of
recognizing the Congressmen. The fact
that there will be no Senatos to interfere
is considered as a strong point In favor of
Mr. Harrity. Some Democrats who claim
to be on the inside say that the politicians
won't have much chance with Cleveland,
and as the latter can't hope lor re-election
lie will be very independent and a hard man
Sipe Will nave All or Xonp.
The anti-Harrity people argue that either
Mr. Sipe will have to be recognized or ig
nored. He will stand no division of the
spoils with the Secretary of the Common
wealth. Should Mr. Sipe secure the Presi
dent s car, it is certain that O JLeary and
J.Rrkin will be turned down. They are ac
cused of trying to knife Sipe hv ra'isinc the
religious issue, and the new Congressman
feels very sore toward them. They are
cnargea aiso wim raising J3.UOU in the
the county, and instead of spending it here
VERY CLOSE IN OHIO.
Al Carlisle Thinks th State Is Democratic
by 600 All tho County Returns In Ex
cept Four Both 1'artles Waiting for tho
Al Carlisle left he Ohio Democratic
headquarters at Columbus in charge of
Colonel W. A. Taylur yesterday morning
and came over to Pittsburg to get some rest.
He had been up several nights figuring on
the returns, and, while he says the re
sult is very close, he thinks Cleveland
has carried the State. He advises his
friends to pay no attention to the claims of
Republicans," as only the official count will
record the outcome. Both parties are
crving victory. Al was armed with a
formidable sheet that showed the vote by
counties and the gains and losses of both
parties according to the returns. The Re
publican gain column was sparsely settled,
while the array of figures in the Demo
cratic line reminded one of an overflow of
lodgers in a cheap tenement house.
Mr. Carlisle says the returns are in from
all the counties but lour; these are Hamil
ton, Washington, Trumbull and Highland.
They are Republican strongholds, but Al
figures that allowing them McKinley's
vote of a year ago the State is Demo
cratic by 500 plurality. The Demo
cratic gain is estimated at 48 in
Trumbull, 198 in Washington and 2,258
in Hamilton, while the Republicans in
creased theit vote by 100 in Highland.
Both Taylors for Secretary of State ran
behind the national tickets, but Mr. Carlisle
thinks that the Republican candidate lost
the most. On this account it is difficult to
say now which is elected. The Republican
counties that show the greatest loss are
Cuyahoga, where the Harrison slump was
over-4,000, Hamilton, Summit and Mahon
ing. Mark comes to the front
with a big increase in the Democratic vote.
An analysis shows that in the wool coun
ties, like Harrison and Licking, the Re
publicans lost heavily. In Licking the
Democratic gain is Ml.
Continuing, Mr. Carlisle said: "Whether
we lose the State or not, we will secure
some ot the electors, anyhow. It is settled
that Danford, Republican elector -at
large, and James B. Seward, Demo
crat, arc elected. Some voters put in the
straight ticket, but in many cases
the electoial candidates were cut, and the
official count will show that electors on
both sides have been success! ul. The Aus
tralian ballot makes this possible, and the
Totes must be counted as cast. If a voter
didn't like an elector he was slashed. I am
proud of one thing. During the Chicago
Convention an Iowa man bet me 2 to 1 that
Cleveland wouldn't carry Ohio. I took
the wager, and I feel surel have won it"
Mr. Carlisle exhibited the codt of a
letter that'be sent to Cleveland a week ago
in which he said: "If we poll 95 per cent
ot the Democratic vote in Ohio, we will
carry the State." When asked it he knew
what ex-Governor Campbell's rcw.ard would
bo he said the former executive was not
worrying and would not be forgotten. Mr.
Carlisle thinks there is a tower ot strength
in the name of Cleevland, and the influence
of his personality, coupled with the tariff,
did the business.
THE THIED TIMS,
they delivered it into Harrity's hands with
a flrurish ot trumpets.
One hears all sorts of gossip these davs.
It is hinted in some quarters that Harrity
will harmonize the tactions in Allegheny
county by keeping his hands off" the Pitts
burg office. It is claimed that he can now
afford to be generous. Harrity's enemies
sneer at him as a Chairman, and state that
had the result been close he would be a
great man, but the victory was so pro
nounced that nobody deserves the credit
for it. Much is made of Gorman's pres
ence at headquarters during the last week,
and it is acknowledged that for the time
being Mr. Harrity was practically superseded.
Dr. G C Wilev was asked yesterdav if
he was after an office. He said he couldn't
afford to accept anything not in line with
his prolession. His friends are pushing
him for pension examiner, but he is not
sure that he wants it The salary is from
52,000 to $2,500 per yesfr, which is not a
great inducement, but the doctor finds that
he wouldn't have to give up much of his
time, and he may apply for the position.
He is alao mentioned for chief pension ex
aminer ofthe United States.
Coroner McDowell's Majority Grows lArger
at Each Ke-Elcctlon.
In Pittsburg, Allegheny and McKeesport
Coroner McDowell has a majority of 10,897
over King. His vote in Pittsburg was 6,110,
in Allegheny 4,183 and in McKeesport 604.
His total vota was 29,776 and King's 19,079.
The balance ofthe vote has not been counted
Mr. McDowell is naturally feeling very
good oyer his re-election, this being the
third time that the people of Allegheny
county have given him the office. Each
time he has polled a larger vote than the
preceding year. This year he ran 2,000
votes ahead of the Presidental ticket in
A Great Undertaking.
The work or printing the Baker ballots In
the short space or time allowed by the com
mittee caused much lear In this section as
to tho ability of any of tne printing houses
of Pittsburg to complete the work on time.
The "copy" for tho ballot was received by
tho Pittsburg Printing Company at 11 o'clock
A. it. Octobo 29, and at 5 o'clock p. ir. Xo
Tember I the contract was completed and
In the hands or tlio County Commissioners.
This Is a record of which any printing house
in tho country would feel proud. To under
take this task without tho most improved
presses and skilled management would be a
hopeless one. While the new Cotrell presses
just placed in the large press rooms of this
company added greatly to the success of
this Immense undertaking, credit is largely
due tho lorem&n, 11 r. Schimelfeder. Ills
skill and splendid management or details
have made lor the Pittsburg Printing Com
pany a limitation not enjot ed Dv any other
similar establishment in this section.
The increased demand for steel brake
beams has induced a number of capitalists
interested in their manufacture to form a
company, to be known as the American
Brake Beam Company. It will control the
product of all the mills making this class
of goods in the United States. Negotia
tions have been on foot for some time, and
enough has already been done to insure the
succejs of the new concern.
There are four companies that have manu
factured these brakes, and they have sold
out their interests to the new company.
They are: The Schoen Pressed Steel Brake
Beam Company, of Pittsburg; the Univer
sal Brake Beam Company, of St Louis;
the Michigan Railway Supply Company, of
Detroit, and the Northwestern Kailway
Supply Company, of Chicago. It is gener
ally thought that these companies hold
more or less stock in the American Brake
Beam Companv, though none of the men
interested in the matter would give out any
information on the subject
Officers of the New Organization.
The following have been elected as the
temporary officers: President, H. W.
Oliver, of Pittsburg; Secretary. Mahlon S.
Frost, of Chicago; Treasurer," S. T. Davis,
of Detroit; Business Manager, W. A.
Pungs, of Detroit Another meeting of
the stockholders will bo held at Chicago on
December 5, when permanent officers will
be elected and final arrangements com
pleted for the company's business. At
present the main office will be in Chicago,
but efforts are being made to have it brought
to this city, and it is thought with good
prospects of success. The incorporated
capital is $2,500,000. The annual business
amounts to from 51,000,000 to 51,500,000,
and the demand for this class ot roods is
It has been only about three years since
the industry was started, and it has grown
with remarkable rapidity. The output of
these four companies, which are in the power
of the American Brake Beam Company,
virtually controls the building of ali freight
and passenger cars in the country, as it
holds all the patents and franchises on the
latest improvements in railroad cart
A member ofthe company, in speaking of
the proposed consolidation" of interests in
the one company, said yesterday: "I want
it distinctly understood'that this is no trust
or combine in the usual acceptance of that
Combined Against Price Cutting.
"For some time the competition has been
so sharp in this particular line of trade that
the prices were ruinously cut The com
pany was simply formed to have the four
concerns interested understand each other
better and that they might act in unison.
All the patents, rights and franchises were
sold out and are now in the hands of this
company. Whether they paid the four
companies in stock or cash is another ques
tion and I will not discuss it.
"The new industry has sprung out ofthe
necessity for stronger brake beams on
cars. Formerly wood was used but this
breaks so easily that steel has to be em
ployed in the manufacture of these brakes.
This is particularly so sinpe the introduc
tion of air brakes on both passenger and
freight cars. There is only one company
near Pittsburg that makes this class of
goods, and that is the Schoen Manufactur
ing Company. If the proper steps are
taken, the new company could be brought
to this city, as there are advantages to be
had that can be found in no other city. The
move could not be made in less than a year,
however, and as Chicago is not suited to the
business, 6ome change will likely be made
then. The new move is bound to be a suc
cess, and the companies interested are thor
oughly interested in it."
WILL CHANGE TO BILLETS.
The Edgar Thomson Steel Works Will No
Longer Make Steel Rails Tho Latest
Machinery 'Will Bo Placed In the Mills
Men Thrown Oat of Employment
An important change was yesterday made
in the Edgar Thomson Steel Works at Brad
dock. These mills have been turning out
steel rails exclusively sines 1873. As the
market has been dull in this class of goods
for some time the price has fallen and there
is little money in turning them out
At 2 o'clock yesterday morning the
machinery was stopped and the
work of changing the arrangements In
the entire plant was at once begun. It is
intended that this change shall have been
completed by this evening, when the mills
will be started again at 6 o'clock. The
product ofthe plant will hereafter be steel
billets, few rails being made. These will
be 4x4 inches and 6 feet long. The demand
for billets is strong, and the product of the
mills will be about 1,900 tony every 24
hours. The new machinery now being
placed in position is of the most improved
and latest patterns, which will enable the
billets to be placed on the market at a much
lower figure than they are now selling at.
A pair of shears is now being put in that
will cut seven billets at once. The billets
will be made from the came bloom, but the
steel will be much softer.
The change will cause the finishing de
partment in the mills to be closed down.
This will throw about 300 finishers out of
employment As it is not known whether
the change will be permanent or for only a
short time, the disposition of these men
has not yet been decided upon. It is
thought that for the time being they will be
placed in the Homestead mills. The
change will open many new positions in
the other departments, and as many men
will be accommodated as possible This
change has been contemplated for
some time' by the company, but could not
be made until the Homestead trouble
had been settled.

At a Meeting of the Coal Exchange the
Operators Insist on Three-Cent Coal.
The Coal Exchange met again yesterday
morning in the Iron Exchange building to
further consider the progress of the strike
of the coal miners and hear the report of
the committee appointed to canvass
the situation among the mines
along the Monongahela river. Some
miner were reported as working a
few mines in the third and fourth pools. P.
G. Forsythe, in the third pool, was said to
have 50 men working at the reduced rates.
John A. Wood had 40, and 50 were at work
at Greenfield, but these were running little
coal, as compared to the general output of
There was -a disposition to feel that
the end would soon come, but there
was no assurance of such. It was
reported that the miners at Coal
Valley, Buffal Bend, Shire Paks, Hilldale
apd Courtney had held a meeting and de
cided to stand out to the bitter end and
resist the importation of men to take their
places. The operators tacitly agreed to
Btand together and not allow any coaf to be
loaded except at the reduced rates. An
other meeting will be held eay Bcac week.
Before the exchange adjourned some busi
ness relating to the river belotr Pittsburg
was passed upon.
WHY OHIO SLUMPED.
The Working Teople and tho Tarmers
Sawed Wood and Voted McKinley'g
Administration lied Nothing to Do With
the Kesnlk Praise for Cleveland.
Ex-Congressman George W. Cronse, of
Akron, a prominent Republican and a lead
ing stockholder in the Charleroi Plate
Glass Company, was in the city for a short
time yesterday. "I think," he said, "that
the result in Ohio can be explained in a few
words. McKinlcy's administration had
nothing to do with it The working people
were dissatisfied and wanted a new ex
perience. They were supplemented by
the farmers, who were disgruntled by the
low price of wh;at and wooL Grain hasn't
been so cheap for years, and, as no improve
ment was apparent, they determined to try
a new policy.
"There was nothing to indicate a slump
in Ohio. It was as much of a surprise to
the Democrats as Republicans. In my cir
cle of acquaintances I beard of no Hoppers,

A Local Preserving Company Bnys a Glass
Plant at Sharpsburg.
The Eumner Glass Works," near Sharps
burg, have been purchased by the H. J.
Heinz Pickling and Preserve Company.
These works have been running only part
of the time for the past ten years, and have
not been in a very flourishing condition.
The works will be put into running order at
once. Bottle, glasses and the various glass
wares used by the company will be made.
The plant will not be able to furnish the en
tire amount of glassware required by the
company, but it is thought it will be en
larged so as to meet the full requirements
of the demand.
A Strong Array of Dramatic and Mnslcal
Talent Every Company in Town to Con
tribute Toward the Entertainment
Something for Every Taste.
At the benefit to be tendered on next Fri
day afternoon to the Pittsburg Press Club
by the theatrical mangers of this city, one
of the biggest programmes of entertainment
ever offered to a local audience will be put
forward. The testimonial has met with
wonderful success from the first moment of
its institution. Letters of sympathy have
come from far and near and every artist,
without exception, placing in the city this
week, has tendered his services.
Heading the big bill are the Leonzo
Brothers in the third act of Brother vs
Brother, in which a variety of the most su
perb canines are introduced. They will be
followed by Mr. James H. Wallack in the
firstact of "The Bandit King." Therein he
introduces several feats ot horsemanship
unequaled in any performance ever teen.
Frye and Hamilton will next bo ceen in
character specialties. They ere both mem
bers of "A German Soldier" Company.
One ot the novelties of the performance
will be the first act of "Under a Lion's
Paw," which will play an engagement at
the Bijou Theater this week. Messrs. Ham
and Glynn will follow in refined comedy and
expert musical specialties.
One ofthe chief features of the entire en
tertainment will then be seen. E. S. Wil
lard will appear in a one-act drama, "My
Aunt's Advice," for the first time in Pitts
burg. He will be supported in this hrill
lant production by Miss Marie Burroughs
and Mr. Massen. The distinguished suc
cesses which Mr. Willard has met with here
will undoubtedly prove favorable to Friday
Following this event will come Miss
Alice Raymond, the eminent cornet virtu
oso. The memory of her triumph at the
Exposition recently is still lingering in the
minds of many of the local music-loving
public,. and it is hardly likely that she will
fail to be a very strong card in herself.
Another great event ot the programme
will be the appearance of Charles Froh
man's comedians in the distinguished
comedy success, "Gloriana." Ko more
brilliant company of artists is on the road
to-dav. This fact should insure success for
the Press Club benefit Several members
of Sam Devere's own company will appear
with all their original individual special
ties. Mr. James Iteilly and his first-class
company will appear in the first act of "A
German Soldier." Other attractions too
numerous to mention have also volunteered
their services for the occasion.
The performance will begin at 1 o'clock
sharp and will extend without wait ot any
sort until about 5:30 r. M. The musical
programme will be furnished by the com
bined orchestras ofthe various theaters.
In accordance with tbe order made by the
Judges of the Common Pleas Court last
Thursday, J. W. Beal, who was appointed
commissioner to take testimony in the
city tax suits, has ordered the first meeting
for to-morrow morning. Only 30 days are
allowed in which the testimony must all be
taken and the report returned to the court
In order to accomplish this It will be neces
sary to have meetings nearly every day.and
It is moie than probable there will be
numerous night sessions.
Since the new charter went into effect
there have been very few night meetings in
City Hall, and the evening cessions of the
Commissioner's Court being a novelty, will
probably draw large audiences.
The mee'tiugs are to be held in the recep
tian room on the second floor of City Hall
except when Councils are in session. There
are 250 cases on the list and about 35 attor
neys will appear for the appellants. W. C
Moreland and his assistant, T. D,
han, will represent the city and
McCleavc the Board of Assessors.
A Big Job for tho Examiner.
An immense amount of work will bs re
quired on each case. Witnesses on both
sides will be examined and a full report
prepared for the court. In the appeals on
classification it is expected the testimony
will be voluminous, both sides supporting
their claim that each piece of property is
built up or rural and showing why they so
decide. On the valuation appeals the testi
mony will be to show prices on property
sold within a recent period in the neigh
borhood of that on which the appeal is

Settlement of tho Trouble Between the City
and the Citizen' Traction Company.
The trouble which has prevented the Cit
izens' Traction Company from extending its
newt electric line to Wilkinsburg will prob
ably be amicably settled next Tuesday. In
the ordinance giving the company the right
of way there was a provision requiring it to
pay a certain sum for the paving of Franks
town avenue, over which it runs. The lan
guage was somewhat vague, but tbe para
graph concluded by giving Chief Bigelow
authority to fix the amount This has been
the cause of the trouble. He fixed 521,000
as the company's assessment, but the com
pany figured out as its share a considerably
smaller sum. For more than two weeks the
work on the line has been delayed, the
Chief refusing to permit anything to be
done until the cash was paid. It is under
stood that the company now sees its disad
vantage in the dispute, and a meeting is
called for Tuesday afternoon, when the
question will be settled by the payment of
nit by a Brick.
James Scanlan, aged SS years, employed
at the John S. Roberts wall paper building,
No. 719 Liberty street, was Beriously in
jured by being struok by a brick which
slipped from the hand of a workman on the
third floor. He was taken to the Home
opathic Hospital, where the snrgeons
trephined his skull, taking out several
pieces of bone. He will probably recover.
