NERAL SEWS OF TI1E LABOR WORLD
Cbe river coal operators are thoroughly
rred up over the action of the depart
nt officials at Washington in permitting
ijor Stickney to go ahead ami build the
rtoirn dike after his own plans. ,
fiie Coal Exchange met yesterday in
pecial session to consider some course
action, for as soon as word had been re
vei Saturday that the exchange
1 been slighted, Secretary Til
isued immediate calls for a
cial meetinjr. The attendance was
t very large, bnt the meeting was none
less spirited. The report ot ttie com
tlee that had waited upon Major Stick
rlat night was heard. It was reported
it the committee could get no satisfaction
bi the Major. He thoroughly explained
; working of his plan, and showed its
-y advantages over the old dike, but
lea to convince the rivermen that he was
lit, as they left him determined to check
te his plans, if possible. The commil
, alter making its renort, was instructed
continue its work of having the ideas of
i Exchange enforced. General Casey will
corresponded with and in case the
swer is not satisfactory- the committee
ii immediately go to Washington again
d have another conference with the le
rtment officials, as the rivermen are de
aiined this dike must be built as they
Want to IIav Their Own Way.
Major Stickney has promised to quit tear-
r the old stonework away from the north
d of the old dike preparatory to taking
away entirely and putting in his new
te until the linal decision ot General
ser is rendered. He has already
dged avay part of the river
1, and put in a good part of the dike.
e -nork is being pushed as rapidly as pos
le on the dam that extends directly
-ess the stream. The rivermen want ail
s torn out and the old dike repaired and
fit to a height of eight feet.
rhe tarnibers of the Exchange are greatly
rcised over w hat they consider as a snub
the treatment thev have received at the
-ds of the Government officials. They
im that should Major Stickney be
owed to go ulicad and build the
t on his proposed plans navigation
.Id be greatly hindered, as the current
r!d be so swift and the dam extend so
- into the stream that it could not be seen
taking a tow down the river. There
jld be a constant danger of running into
- Tirojectinn and sinking the boats,
ptain MclCinlcy, in discussing the dike
-icrdav, said: 'There is only one way
at it; Major Stickney must be made
r the work, already put in, up and build
dam the way we want it. Tiiis is one
the most important questions brought
Before the Exchange Jor a long time and
intend to fiht it to the end. It will be
outrage to leave tl.is thing go. and it
's: be changed. What we want is the old
.e repaired and built two feet higher
The Exchange discussed the miners'
ike and heard reports from many of the
Tatars who had been up the river and
inng the miners to see just what was
tag on. It was stated that while some of
jaen were returning others were coming
after a Jew dajs work, but that most of
m were determined as ever. There was
rarently no change, but since the rise
men were more active, as they now
-'ize that the next few days will turn the
ike one way or tne other.
Hundreds or Empty Iloats.
Hundreds of c .al boats are lving at the
iles readv for loadinc. These boats
le just been recaulked, and should
?v lie unused will soon get
of trim, so that the operators
-Id be heavy losers. The tenor of the re-
-fcs among the operators was that the
ke would soon end or river operations
did be suspended for the rest of the year,
he river will soon be clear of coal and
i tow-boating would be stopped, and the
.e settle down to a long si;ge. Each
ec finds the trade gradually slipping
av from the river to the railroads. This
- been the result ot the long strike, and
ild the strike last much longer the river
i will find their trade greatly confined.
re is some uneasiness among the river
rators on this score, as the struggle be
en them has come to be one for the very
tenee of the river business.
' Be action of the sand diggers in sending
is to clear "the lumps that obstructed
vigation, as soon as threatened with pros
ition by the Coal Exchange, induced the
erators'to not push the cases, at least for
present. These sand diggers have been
lltv ot the same offense before and were
off with a light fine, and are afraid of
ng arrested attain.
Tne rain of yesterday is expected to bring
nvcr up to a coalboat stage by l"ri dav,
ea the river will be cleared of all the
led coal, though there is some fear that
'e are not enough ton boats to take out
eh coal, nearly all having gone down the
er last week.
The Tin Plate Manufacturers Discuss the
Outlook What Will Be Done cxt The
Incoming Administration Eagerly De
pended on for Some Action.
The tin plate manufacturers held a meet
ing at tho office of John Jarrett on Fourth
avenue yesterday. All the officers were
present and there was a good attendance of
members. The question of tho tariff was
the chief topic of disenssion. Since the Jast
election the manufacturers of tin plate have
been very uneasy as to the course of the
incoming administration on the tariff.
The entire afternoon was spent In earnest
conference. It is the intention of the manu
facturers to 50 ahead in completing their
plants and firmly establishing the industry.
The McKinley bill was the father of the tin
plate mills in the country and its threatened
repeal may greatly check the progress Of the
tin plate industry. Some of the members
last evening expressed themselves as still
confident that the conservative element in
the party would prevent any consider
able change in the present tariff
laws. The manufacturers yesterday
argued that the industry was firm
ly established, though they admitted
that there might be a change. No definite
line of action was decided upon, as it is too
soon yet since the election for the trend of
affairs to be known with any certainty, so
the afternoon was spent iu generally dis
cussing the outlook.
The present condition of the market is
notvery brisk on account of the usual dull
period about this time each year. The
margin on these goods is so rmnll that
should the slightest change be made it
would cause a change all around.

The Itlvcrmcn Oojcct to the Building of a
Bridge at Homestead.
The rivermea are not pleased with the
prospect of another bridge being built
across the Monongabela river at Home
stead. The bill introduced by Congrets
man John Balzell anthorizing the Union
Bridge Company to build such a bridge is
causing the ill-feeling, and there is likely
to be a decided kick when the question
comes up. Tho first objection was made
when the bridge was about to be located at
Glcnwood. the plea beintr that it was too
near the Twenty-eighth street bridge. The
location was changed, and now it is claimed
it will be too near the Pittsburg, Mc
Keesportand Youghioghenyltailroad bridge
which crosses the river at the Homestead
steel work. The bridge may be built at
Braddock, but that would not answer the
purpose intended. The Coal Exchange will
take a hand, as the shipping interests of the
river are involved. A committee from the
Exchange will see that its rights are not

The Builders' Trades Committee has raised

hood ot Carpenters, will be replaced as an
official of the Federation by some member
of the Brotherhood of Engineers.
D. F. Brown, a man who saved eleven
lives during the Johnstown flood, is in jail.
He must stay there for three months as he
was yesterday found guilty of false pre
tense. Brown has seen more in the 25 years of
his life than most men at that age. He
was born in Johnstown and with the ex
ception of a short time has spent all of hi!
life in that city. Nearly all his friends
were swept away with the breaking of the
Sonth Fork dam. He happened to be on
one of the hills 'when the water came and
was one of the few men who were able to
witness that awful sight and live. His old
father and mother were swept away to
gether with many other relatives. The
only one of his kin left him was a brother.
Brown stood on the end of the historic
stone bridge, where the force of the water
as it was!.wirlcd about washed away a great
part of the bank. He saved 11 lives at that
point and nearly loot his own. While
reaching out to pull a woman off a piece of
wreckage the ground gave awav beneath his
feet, but he reached a sale place, rescuing
the woman and raving himself.
Johnstown after the flood was to Brown a
forlorn place. He tried to stav there, but
the town held so many sad recollections for
him that he drifted out into the woild.
From then on he has wandered about. Sev
eral months ago he came to Pitts
burg. In a short time he found work
in a grocery store out Butler street. Butter
and eggs soon grew distasteful, and, as he
had doue a score of times since 18S9, he
threw up the job. He did a number of
things after that, but finallv work worried
him. He took up his lodging at a hotel at
New Grant and Liberty street He lived
there until he owed the house S89, and the
proprietor grew uneasy. Browu was asked
to pay up. He said he was expecting some
monev in a few davs and would pay. The
allotted time passed by and Brown did not
settle. He was then arrested, and yester
day the Court sentenced him three months
to jail. Brown is a handsome fellow and
well educated. He feels very keenly the
trouble he has gotten into. When the
Johnstown flood is mentioned to him it is
hard work for him to control his emotion.

Before Commissioner Beale on the tax
cases yesterday the appeal ot J. B. Farmer,
on Boquet street, was considered. His
property contains a half acre in one piece
and three lots in another. He objected
solely to the classification. The three lots
he desired assessed the same as neighboring
property, as rural and not built np.
The property ot E. M. Ferguson on
Morewood and Fifth avenues was taken up
on the question of classification. There
are 2 acres and 21 perches on Morewood
avenue, assessed at $20,000 an acre as rural
The Fifth avenue property fronts 500 feet
by 187. It was assessed at abont 200 a
foot It nas claimed & sale of adjoining
property was made at 5140 a foot Assessor
Larkin said he had been sick for three
weeks during the time the assessors were at
work on some of the Fifth avenue property,
and he could not watch their work and there
might be some discrepancies. He was asked
if he was not responsible anyway, and he re
plied that he was not obliged fo be.
Mr. Carnahan here interposed an objec
tion, and the questions relative to the classi
fication were again taken up, but the case
was not finished.
A PRETTY WOMAN'S FEAT.
She Escapes From a Union Station Window
While Hundreds Watch ner Thomas
Donaghy Chase After His Runaway
Wife lie Wants ner Arrested.
At 6 o'clock last evening when hundreds
of passengers were flocking along the plat
form at Union station to outgoing and, from
incoming trains, they were surprised to see a
stylishly dressed and pretty young woman
climb out of a window from the lsdies' apart
ment in the station. She had a satchel
which she first dropped to the platform
and then, gathering her skirts about her
shapely fizure, drew herself np on the high
window sill. It required some time for her
to arrange her drapery, but finally she com
pleted it and then poising on one hand she
vaulted to the platform as daintily as the
most accomplished danseuse.
Blushintr deenlv over her unavoidable
display of lingerie" she stooped and seizing
her little grip darted through he curious
crowd which had stopped to witness her
Half an hour later as Station Officer
George Bert was passing through the sta
tion he was accosted by a tall, pale-faced
young man who requested his assistance.
"My wife lias run awav from me and
taken my money!" he exclaimed, ''and I
want you to arrest her! She went in there,"
he continued pointing to the ladies' apart
ment, "I have been watching and she hasn't
got an ay."
After getting a description of the woman
the officer started to find her. She was not
in the reception room, hut several ladies
had seen her going into one of the side
apartments and believed she was still there.
The officer went to the apartment indi
cated. It was empty, but the window was
open. When the deserted husband was in
formed of the fact he nearly fainted.
Officer Bert advised him to notify the po
lice, which he did, and the officers" arc now
looking for her.
It was stated that the young man was
Thomas Donaghy, an employe of the rail
road who lives at SValls station. He told
the officers that he had been married for
three years, his. wife being a Southside girl
whose parents lived on Tncnty-seventi:
street Her parents were opposed to the
railroader and had twice prevailed on her
to leave him, but recently he had persuaded
her to come back to him. Since the recon
ciliation they have been boarding at Walls
and he had expended his means to keep her
stylishly attired. Last week when he drew
his month's pay he gave it to her to settle
their bills. Yesterday afternoon a bill was
presented to him for which he had given
his money to pay a month ago. He quit
work and weut home to see her about it, but
she had dressed up in her white felt hat
and her nobby brown dress trimmed with
gold braid, and taking all her valuables
with her, had disappeared. He followed
her to this city, but she escaped him.
Where she has gone he is anxious to know,
lor be intends to have her arrested. A
young pa'titer named McNeill, an acquaint
ance of the family, is also said to be missing.

Detectives have been working on the

They Allege That the Profits of the Dresden
Pottery Are Absorbed in Salaries.
East Liverpool, Dec. 13. (Special,'
In Common Pleas Court at New Lisbon a
decision has just been rendered affecting
stockholders of the Dresden Pottery, of this
city. The co-operative company operating
the Dresden was organized a little more
than ten years ago, with a limitation of ten
years, as is alleged. It has been so success
ful that the value of the stock has increased
more than 400 per cent. Hugh McNichol
was made President at the organization of
the company, and has held the office ever
since. Twelve of the minor stockholders
had applied for a receiver, contending that J
there never had been an accounting ot tho
status of the concern, and when they de
manded it some months since they were in
formed by McNichol that there never had
been any'limitation of the partnership at
the expiration of which an accounting could
be called for.
The small fry insisted that the original
records would show the contrary, and when
the records were produced, with uo such
clause in them, it was alleged that they had
been tampered with in the interest of the
President and the clique of partner' con
trolled by him, among whom the immense
profits ot the concern has been swallowed
up, as the plaintiffs allege, in princely
official salaries voted themselves by the
McNichol clique. Claims aggregating $50,
000 are involved. The Court refused the
application for a receiver, and the plaintiffs
witl Immediately apreal the case to the Su
Popular Book and Stationery House.
