Joint Appeal From the State Wanted
to Influence Congress.
A COMMISSION FOE THE OHIO
Is Badly Needed to Supervise- Annual
HEABUEES TAKES TO AYOID CHOLEBA
The Erie Canal and proposed improve
ments for the Ohio river got another boost
yesterday. The Biverand Harbor Com
mittee held tie attention of the Chamber of
Commerce at the regular meeting, and
Colonel T. P. Eoberts and Captain John F.
Dravo were the principal speakers, with
Captain John A. Wood in the background
to make suggestions and see that every
thing was done properly. The attendance
of business men was good, and from the
manner in which they listened it was ap
parent that the canal project and the im
provement of the Ohio river, the subjects
under discussion, had not become old stories
to them. Captain Dravo thanked the mem
ber?, and promised not to monopolize so
much of the Chamber's time in the future.
First a resolution was introduced and
adopted providing for the appointment of
three delegates to go to Harrisbnrg to urge
the passage of a joint resolution by the
Legislature asking Congress to provide for
the examination of the canal project by
Government engineers, and also to request
the legislature to furnish money to print
and distribute the report of the commission,
copies of the report to be sent to all the
lake and river cities and exchanges. Presi
dent Kelly appointed Colonel T. P. Eob
erts, Captain Dravo and Captain John A.
Wood as the committee to go to Harrisburg.
They will leave shortly after the Legisla
ture convenes. Colonel Eoberts explained
N7at a bill asking for the appropriation of
10,000 to have the canal scheme examined
was new pending before Congress.
Another Canal Project Indorsed.
The second report was upon a paper re
ferred to the committee from the Duluth
Chamber of Commerce. It advocated the
holding of a convention in "Washington,
some time soon after the holidays, to urge
upon Congress the advisability of building
a canal from the Great Lakes through Amer
ican territory to the Hudson river and thus
to the sea. The following resolution was
submitted and adopted:
Resolved, That the Chamber of Commerce
heartily indorses the call for the proposed
convention. The city of Pittsburg is vitally
interested in the navigation or the Great
Lakes, millions of tons ot freight destined
for and shipped from this city being annu.

extension of this navigation by means ot a

industries of this city, and to the mines of

ject bavins been pronounced feasible, the
projector the completion or such a work
affords an additional incentive for urging
the extension of a shin canal through to tide
waters of the Hudson.
Colonel Eoberts had a map of the pro
posed canal to tidewater, and explained the
project to the directors. hen the con
vention is called the delegates will be ap
pointed. Colonel Eoberts spoke of the in
terest taken m the Erie waterway by the
Cincinnati people, and suggested that some
body should go to "Washington when the
National Board of Trade meets in January.
The indications are this will be done.
The Commerce of the Ohio.
The third report was on the Ohio Kiver
Commission and fully explains itselt The
report is as follows:
i In the extent of its tonnage and In num
ber of its vessels, including steamers and
barges, the Ohio river considerably exceeds
the aggregate or all the other tributaries of
the Mississippi, and it bears upon its waters
a commerce greater and more valuable than
is carried upon any other single American
river. The work for the improvement of
the navigation or this great stream has here
, tofore been uesultory, partly or a perma
nent and partly 01 a temporal j- nature, and
it never has been, for want of adequate
nearis, pnsned to a degreo commensurate
with its importance. It appears to your
committee that the time has come when the
needs of inland commerce demands more
liberal appropriations, expended in a wise
and comprehensive system.

to the prevention of encroachments by

the mouth of the river. In this region the
Ohio in places presents some o. the charac

work and bant protection to prevent
changes in the channel and other work for
the control of the stream are being asked for.
Three Civilians Asked For.
It is evident that in its different parts, dif
fercnt treatments are demanded and it is
for this reason that your committee would
recommend the appointment of three mem
bers from civil life to act in conjunction
with tho United States officials who might
be appointed on tho proposed commission,
and hence tho basis of the organization

tor the Mississippi rather than that ap
pointed for the Missouri river.
A resolution was offered and adopted
calling on the Government to authorize the
appointment ot a commission for the Ohio
as outlined, consisting of seven members,
three to come from civil life. Colonel
Eoberts explained that Congressman Par
rott, of Evansville, had introduced a bill in
Congress calling for the appointment of five
commissioners, but he hoped to have the
measure amended and the number increased
Another resolution provided that
printed copies ot the report be forwarded to

The American Society Will Convene Hero
To-Day Pittsburg Not Bepresented in
the Association, bat a Number of Local
Chemists "Will Join Some Distinguished
The annual meeting of the American
Chemical Society will be held in Pittsburg,
beginning to-day, and continuing on Thurs
day and Friday. The rooms of the En
gineers' Society in the old Thaw residence
will be used for the meeting place.
The association was founded in "Wash
ington two years ago, and Prof.
Caldwell, of Cornell University, is Preii
dent. Strange to sav, no Pittsburgers are
members of the organization. Probably no
city in the country has more chemists in
proportion to population, and the 'local
society numbers 50., Captain Hunt said
yesterday that many of the Pittsburg chem
ists would join the society at this meeting.
The society meets here on the invitation
of the Engineers' Societv, and the visitors
will be guests of the members. The associa
tion has a membership of 400, and fully 200
will be present As many of the college
professors belong to the society and the
schools are closed for the holidays the meet
ing is held at this time for their con
venience. An interesting progiamme has
been prepared. Papers will be read on sub
jects attracting attention in the realm of
chemistry at present.
A number of the chemists will be here
this morning. A. H. Sabm, of New York,
is at the St Charles, and John Howard Ap
pleton, professor ot chemistrv in Brown
University, arrived on the limited last
evening. Dr. X. T. Lupton, State Chemist
for Alabama, is at the Seventh Avenue.
His principal duty is to make assays of all
the fertilizers used by Alabama gran
gers free of charge. He is one of
the organizers of the society, and
is enthusiastic over its growth. Prof. Ap
pletou and Prof. Caldwell are recognized as
two of the ablest teachers of chemistry in
the country. Other men of note are also
here and will attend the meeting. One of
-the interesting features will be the visits to"
the mills. It is safe to say that Pittsburgers
need more knowledge of chemistry in the
conduct ot their industries than any other
people in the country. Chemistry is used
extensively in the various plants.
lng plans and suggestions for local improve
ments occasionally ariao in wnicn me gen
eral interests of navigators are some times
overlooked, leading to protests, confusion
and delays. Lines of steamers have been
established between the chief cities
upon its banks, and between these
centers and intermediate points, and while
all concerned are vitally interested In he
navigation of the river there is no common
understanding as to what requires the most
attention, each district u reins upon the
Congressional representatives appropria
tions which seem to its advocates best
adapted to meet the local necessities.
The Demands of the Future.
While, as before said, the commerce of
the Ohio is now very great. It promises to
reach in the future vastly greater propor
tions, and the river would therefore seem to
demand the same watchful care and as
favorable treatment as is accor-led the Mis
sissippi and Missouri rivers, where Govern
mens commissions have been appointed to
devise and superintend improvements,
and authorized to report through the
Chief of Engineers to the Secretary of
of War annually their estimates of expendi
tures required on the respective rivers. The
Mississippi Elver Commission was author
ized by an act of Congress June 18, 1878, and

The hearing in the case of May Koch,
who is charged before Alderman Kerr by
her husband Jos. Koch, with bigamy, and
B. "W. Oldham charged with misdemeanor,
came up yesterday.
The main facts have been published,
Koch produced the marriage certificates
and other evidence which the Alderman
considered sufficient to hold the defendants.
They were returned to jail in default of
$1,000 bail. Oldham claimed that Mrs.
Koch told him she had secured a divorce.
The wife took exception to this, and Old
ham and she almost came to blows.
The woman finally broke down and tried
to get her first husband to withdraw the
charge by calling him pet names. This
made Oldham mad and he reproached her.
A war ot words followed, in which the
woman gave both husbands a tongue lash
ing. Next she made up with Oldham, and
with a kiss they returned to the jail.
The kindergarten school is fast becoming
an institution in Pittsburg. Its coming

assured by the patronage of the two cities'
The Free Kindergarten Association of
Pittsburg and Allegheny is doing a good
work. It is established for the moral, men
tal and physical training of poor, neglected
children under the age of 7. The ob
ject of the association is broad, non-sectarian
and includes all nationalities. It aims
to take little children from destitution and
nnhealthful homes, waifs from the streets
and slums, and bv devoted care first attract
them by a system of object lessons, thus de
veloping the latent faculties of the child's
The kindergarten teaches the child its
relation to nature and to life, and it is
recognized by the great educators and
scholars of the world that it lays the right
foundation for future education and useful
ness of the child. The kindergarten child
carries the influence of the good work into
its home. It is a known and demonstrated
fact that the impressions received under the
age of 7, are the most lasting. The kinder
garten associates children with children in
a pure atmosphere, amid pleasant surround
ings anil under special guidance. Statistics
show that of 8,000, who have been trained
in the kindergarten in San Francisco dur
ing the past 12 years, only one of that num
ber has been under arrest, and be was a
Interest Taken in the Work.
The women who are back of this good
work are well known in Pittsburg aud
Allegheny charitable and social cir
cles. Among them are .Mrs. "W.
A. Herron, Mrs. B. Shaw, Mrs. D.
"W. Bell, Mrs. W. M. McKelvey,
Miss L. H. Killikelly, Mrs. J. M. Patter
son, Miss Isabella Wallace, Mrs. James
Dickinson and Mrs. Z. A. Cutten. A num
ber of men have interested themselves
in this uplifting of humanity. Men, such
as Benjamin Thaw, "W. K. Thompson, "W.
"W. Card, Samuel Hamilton, James Stuart
and "W. P. Scott, are associated with the
women as advisors. One of the mottoes of
this organization is: "The more you pay
now for the prevention of crime, the less
the next generation will have to pay for
the suppression of it"
The association has been working along
in a quiet way, but achieving good results.
Its objects had to be gotten before the peo
ple, and this was what was attempted at
the Third Presbyterian Church on Sixth
avenue last night The ladies had brought
Miss Lucy Wheelock all the way from Bos
ton to tell the people of these two cities
about kindergartens. The speaker was
worthy of a far larger audience, but it is
safe to say every one of het hearers will in
the future have a higher appreciation of
this plan of education. This afternoon at 3
o'clock she will talk to "mothers" at the
Alinda Preparatory School, Filth avenue
and Craig street She and the association
hope the women will turn out enmasse.
Miss "Wheelock's Pleasant Talk.
Dr. Holmes introduced Miss "Wheelock
last night in a neat, interesting way. He
praised ber for the good work she had done,
and his words were not' idle flattery, as the
young woman demonstrated. She under
stands her subject thoroughly, and tells
what she has to say in a way which is inter
esting. Her voice has a musical ring, and
every word she uttered last night was drank
in by ber hearers. She spoke in a
general way for a few moments end
then told a story ot a Cali
fornia philanthropist "He was going to
give $25,000," said she, "to a home lor the
incurables. A Kindergartener called on
him and asked that he eive $12,500 to the
project and ;he other $12,500 for a home for

farten is the only way this can be rightly
one. Many people are with the kinder
garten like the four blind men were with the
elephant, who each grasped the animal's
tail, and each said it was something else.
Some say this system of education is but a
school tor fancy work. This is not so;
while it is in part, it aims for something
higher. Others call it a trade school, and
it is also sooken ot as kitchen and sewing

"We have the children for five days and
slowly instill into them the ideas which a
Sunday school teacher tries to do in an

is felt in the home. Little Mary makes

A Brilliant Lire Cut Off In Its Prime Com

One of the Leading Attorn-ys of the
County A Brief Sketch of His Lire.
"William S. Pier, a prominent citizen and
well-known practitioner at the Allegheny
county bar, died at his home on Craig street
yesterday morning. A complication of dis
eases of the digestive organs caused his
death. Mr. Pier was 46 years of age. He
was a native of Jamestown, "IT. Y., but
while a young man came to this city with
his parents and joined the brewing firm of
Pier, Dannals & Co., of which his father is
still senior member.
Twelve years ao he withdrew irom the
firm and studied law under Supreme Justice
Shiras, then an attorney. Two years later
he was admitted to the bar. He rapidly ac
quired practice through successful handling
of his business, and for several years has
been regarded as one ot the city's most able
practitioners. In several important suits
in which the city was involved he was en
gaged as special counsel. His popularity
among his associates at the bar was attested
yesterday by the general regret expressed
at his death.
For several years Mr. Pier was a Council
man from the Fourteenth ward. He was a
Republican politically, but always secured
his election by his personal popularity on
an independent ticket, enjoying the dis
tinction of being the only man eleeted in
his ward against the regular Republicans.

The illness which terminated his brilliant
career has affected him for several years,
though it was not until he suffered an acnte
attack at his office last September that he
gave up. After that he spent two months
at Atlantic City on advice of his physicians,
but it did him no good. It may be said he
grew gradually worse from the time of his
first serious attack until yesterday morning,
when he ansnered the last summons at 11

"The atmosphere of a kindergarten school
is so pure. How can it help but be so? The
children are most happy aud vie with each
other in being good. Virtue, power and
due freedom are the essential qualites of
the ideal man. We bnild our wort on them.
From the start it is the aim in kindergarten
work -to give children due freedom.
In many schools teachers think
it is their duty to break the will of a child.
In our work that is coneidered the most
dangerous step. "We strengthen the will of
a child. Let the little one decide for him
self. This leads him to govern himself.

"The man of power is the one who lives
among men. The kindergarten attempts to

want to develop the physical powers. This
is done by having the children impersonate
birds and butterflies as they soar through

little folks do by movements of their hands.
We teach them to use their eyes. The
child ot the kindergarten is always
watching for beauty, and it finds
it where older persons cannot They
notice the movements of the butterflies and
