An Incident of the Administration of "Tub" Becker as Sprinkling Superin-. tendent in IS99. UNCONSCIOUS TO THE LAST. K Wf- ftp K Louis, better known as "Tub." Becker, member of tho Republican City Central Committee from tho Seventh 'Ward, and ono of a committee of two delegated by that body to raise a Parker campaign Blush fund at tho City Hall, was reappointed by Street Commissioner Varrelmann on Tues day to tho ollico of Superintendent of Sprinkling at $123 a month. For four years Becker has been connected with tho Sprinkling Department, first as !u Frector and then as Superintendent, suc ceeding George W. Rlcchmanu In this po sition. Sprinkling Inspectors are on the payroll from March 13 to December 1 at a monthly salary of JS3.3 and an allowance of J20 a month each for tho horse and buggy which. It Is presumed, they u?e In the discharso of their duties. From December 1 to March 15, when little sprinkling is done, and that at tho expense of tho city. Inspectors aro not on salary, but when their services are considered necessary they are hired by the day. receiving $4 a day. Vnrrclmxtnn Rejected the Payroll. Oh December 1, 1S99, when Becker was Su perintendent, the Inspectors were ordered out, to be paid tho customary wages, 51 each a day. On December 2 the same order prevailed. When the payroll had been made out un der Becker's supervision nnd was taken to Street Commissioner Varrelmann ho re fused to approve It, striking the names of two men who had been allowed ?S each for two days' service from the roll mid re quiring that a new payroll be drawn up excluding these names. His reason for refusing to allow tho ray ment of wages to these two inspectors, Henry Wander and Charles Lochblhler, at the dally rate was that the men wore both cut of the city on December 1 and 2. Wan der, It is said, was in the country hunting, having made his last sprinkling report be fore his departure en November 2S. Loch blhler was in Hot Springs. His last re port was made out on November 0, but he was paid for the entire mon:h of Novem ber at the monthly rate.

PATTERSON AND GLEASON CONFESS, 'Admit Giving Miss Paige Whisky and Brandy, but Declare It Was After She Fainted. SAY THEY TRIED TO REVIVE HER Both Young Men Are Identified by Their Victim, Who Tells the Part They Played. REPUBLIC SPECIAL New York, March 33.

Tho prisoners ate Georgu F. Abbott. Jr., 17 years old; David Patterson, IS years old, and Ed ward Gleason. 18 years old. All three were arraigned in court this morning, pleaded not guilty and were sent to Jail to await a hearing next Tuesday. Magistrate Brenner refused to admit tho accused man to bail until he could be cer tain that the victim of their treatment was out of all danger. The girl Is still weak nnd In a precarious condition at her home. No. 191 Pearl street, but her physician says she has a chance for life. Patterson and Gleason, for whom d half dczen detectives scoured the borough of Brooklyn all Tuesday night, were found la Park Row at 7 o'clock this morning. The boys ran Into the arms of the detectives and were Immediately- taken to Brooklyn. At the police station the prisoners were cross-examined. Captain Dunne said sub sequently that the young men admitted having been with the girl, and Abbott, in the stable on Sunday night. The girl had fainted and they had stayed there, doing their best to restore her to consciousness. The young men declared that they had been asked into the alley by Abbott, whom they had met In Jay street. They also asserted that the only drink given the girl was after she had fainted. A glass of whisky and a glass of brandy had then been forced down her throat to revive her. The men were taken to the Paige home. The girl was conscious at this time, but very weak. The two prisoners were placed In line with other young men and the girl was asked to pick out her assailants. She had no hesitation in picking out Gleason and Patterson, calling each by name, and declaring that the former had held her bands, while Abbott had poured a drink down her throat from a Un cup. , CITIZENSARTY PRIMARY.

Street Commissioner Varrelmann when questioned concerning his refusal to approve the sprinkling department pay roll for De cember, 1S39, recalled the incident at once. 'It is the custom, when men on regular salary, are absent for good cause to allow them their pay." he said. "In this instance, however, the men wero hired by the day and paid by the day. Consequently I would not permit the two names to go on the pay roll and ordered a new roll made out. "I don't think Mr. Becker Intended any thing wrong. I reappointed him because he cave good service last year and seemed to take an Interest In the sprinkling depart ment." It has long been the understanding that all sprinkling department appointments are made at the Mayors dictation. Becker lives at No. 1716A South Four teenth street and Is marshal of the Mer chants' League' Club. BAKER-HOWARD FO HAS BEEN SETTLED, Kentucky Families Which Have Been at War Since 1844 Bury the Hatchet. THEY AGREE TO LIVE IN PEACE. One Hundred Lives Sacrificed to Their Enmities and Whole Counties Kept in Tur moil for Years. REPUBLIC SPECIAL. London, Ky March 12. After a feudal warfare lasting since 1S, and which has cost a hundred or more lives, what Is known ns the Baker-Howard feud has been settled. Tho settlement was brought about princi pally by Circuit Judge Tinsely, lately ap pointed to tho bench in the district by Gov ernor Beckham to fill a vacancy, and attor ney Carlos B. Little. All sides, with their hundreds of followers, have agreed to lay down their arms. The factions Include the powerful family of whom -General T. T. Garrard Is at the head, along with the Bakers and the Phil pots and GrlSlns on one side, and the How ards and tho Whites on the other, with many families Into which they havo Inter married. General Garrard Is the wealthiest man in Clay County, and has been the bone nnd Blnew of the feud. The Howards and their allies, tho Whites, tho latter controlling every office In Clay County except the Cir cuit Judge, have made up In power what they lacked In money. As result of the agreement all cases have been transferred to other counties and the law will take Its course and all who are entitled to ball will be released. In some few cases the indictments will be filed away, but these are exceptions. The terms agreed upon are simply these: Each side dismisses and disarms Its fol lowers, and these followers disperse, to be brought together no more by their respec tive leaders: the principals will not go armed about town, or in the presence or about each other, nor will they allow their friends to stay about them carrying arms. It is the further understanding that the principals on each side will undertake to guarantee the personal safety of the princi pals on the other side from their respective followers, so that Sheriff White, Daw White and his father. John B. White, may pass up and down the South Fork by the residence of General Garrard without fear of molestation, and on the other hand the Garrard brothers and their Immediate friends may come to Manchester or else where in the county with a like feeling- of security.

Widows and Children of Men in the Carnegie Company's Employ to Be Given Assistance Steel King's Letters. Pittsburg, March 1.1. Two communica tions from Andrew Carnegie, which aro of ficially made public to-night, tell of tho steel king's reUremcnt from active business life and of his donation of (5,000,000 for tho endowment of a fund for superannuated and disabled employes of the Carnegie com pany. This benefaction Is by far the largest of the many created by Mr. Carnegie nnd li probably without a counterpart anywhere In tho world. It In no wise will Interfere with the continuance of tho tavlngs fund established by tho company fifteen years ago, for the benefit of its employes. In this latter fund nearly J2.000.000 of the employes' savings aro on deposit, upon which the company by contract pays 6 per cent and loans money to the workmen to build their own homes. Tho letters follow: 'Andrew Carnegie. No. 5 West Fifty-first Btreet, New Tork, March 12, 1301. To tho good people of Pittsburg: An opportunity to retire from business camo to me unsought, which I considered It my duty to accept. My resolve was made in youth to retire before old age. From what I havo seen around me I cannot doubt the wlidom of this course, although the change Is great, even serious, and seldom brings the happiness expected. CARNEGIE'S IDEA OF HOW OLD AGE SHOULD BE SPENT. "But thl? Is because ho manv havlnir abundanco to retire upon, havo so little to retire to. The fathers in olden days taught I that a man should havo tlmo before tho . end of his career for the 'making of his soul." I "I have always felt that old age should I be spent, not, as the Scotch say, In 'making , micKie mair, dui in maKing a goo.i use ot .what has been acquired, and I hopo my friends of Pittsburg will approve of my action In retiring -while still in full health and vigor, and I can reasonably expect many years for usefulness In fields which have other than personal alms. "The pain of change and separation from business associations and employes Is in deed keen; associates who arc at once the best of partners and the best of friends: employes who aro not only the best of workmen, but the most self-respecting body of men which the world has to show. Of this I am well assured and very proud. "But the separation, even from a buslnesi point of view, is not absolute, since my capital remains In Pittsburg, as before, and Indeed. I am now Interested In more mills thero than ever, and depend upon Pittsburg as hitherto for my revenue. "ANDREW CARNEGIE." HOW THE INCOME ON THE 95,000,000 19 TO DE USED.

I have been giving the Interest of J250.000 to each of these libraries hitherto, and thl3 will give a revenue of 50,000 hereafter for the three. "Tho income of the other $4,000,000 is to be applied: ' "First To provide for employes of the Carnegie company In all Its works, mines, railways, shops, etc. Injured In Its serv ice, apd for tho3e dependent upon such em ployes as are killed. "Second To provide small pensions or aids to such employes as. after Ion? and creditable service, through exceptional cir cumstances, need such help In their old age. and who make a good use of It. "Should these uses not require all of the revenue and a surplus of $200,000 be. left after ten years' operation, then for all this, workmen in mills other than tho Carnegie company in Allegheny County, shall be come eligible ror participation- in the fund, the mills nearest the works of the Carnegie Steel Company being first embraced.

Bolla Wells Outlines Issues of the Campaign and Hopes That lie May Assist in Making St. Louisans Happy. Under tho auspices of the German-American Democratic Club ono ofthe largo meet ings of the campaign wa3 held last night In Bohemian Gymnasium Hall, Ninth street and Allen avenue. At least 2.000 citizens were In the room, besides a fifo and drum corps and the Bo hemian Democratic Club, with Frank Mat oushek, tho Bohemian King, at Its head. Tho meeting was called to order by Sheriff Joseph F. DIckmann, who introduced An drew Zlpf as tho chairman of the mcetine. Mr. Zipf made a speech In German, which was cheered vociferously. He said among other things that he had heard someone de cry Mr. Wells on the ground that ho Is a millionaire, and added: "I bellevo It would bo much better to have a millionaire Mayor from the start than to put a man In tho office who would try to mako himself a millionaire out of it." Just as Mr. Zlpf ended his unnpeh T?nii Wells nnd Harry B. Hawes entered tho hall. As soon jis Mr. Wells was recog nized tho audience rose and gave him three cheers that shook the building. Mr. Wells was then Introduced. Ho said that ho could not help believing that tho good pcopla of St. Louis have made up their minds to elect tho Democratic ticket at the coming election. "Tho Issues In tho present campaign," ho said, "aro very simple. All might be comprehended under the one general head. iioou .Municipal Government.' The coun try over, there Is no class of people stronger for good municipal government than the German-Americans. The dis graceful conditions of the streets of St. Louis, tho deplorable condition of the hos pitals and asylums of the. city cannot Ho easily upon jour clvio consciences. li tho Democratic ticket Is elected I believe that you can look confidently for such changes as will conduce to the happiness of all citizens, nnd I promise you that I will do all In my power to see that these reforms are accomplished." L. F. Hammer, Jr., followed Mr. Wells. He told how tho German-American Club Increased In membership' from 5 to COO, and said that ho Indulged tho hopo that It would eventually swell to E.000, and more. When Harry B. Hawes was Introduced the applauso that greeted him was deafen ing. Sir. Hawes spoke for an hour. Among other things, he said: "I want to call the attention of even- man here to certain solemn promises mado by the Republicans th.fr platform four years ago.

"If thero Is any citizen in St. Louis that can believe that the Republican party is to be trusted after the manner in which its representatives have kept the promises ot four years ago, then I must confess that their credulity surpasses understanding." Others who addressed the meeting were H. J. Spaunhorst. John Stetler. James M. Franclscus, Jr.. Bernard DIerkes, James Y. Flavor, Hiram Philllp3 nnd Henry Krestin?. Hiram Phillips, the candidate for Presi dent of the Board of Public Improvements, said that by an error he had been made to appear as an ex-Republican. He said that he had never been anything but a Democrat all his life. RUMORS OF CONSOLIDATION. Street Car Manufacturers Said to Be Interested. Reports of attempts to consolidate the four rtreet-car manufactories of the city have been revived. Walter J. Holbrook, president of the Blackwelder-Holbrook Real Estate Company, is credited by rumor with an attempt to perfect the organiza tion lately. Mr. Holbrook' stated yesterday that nothing definite has been done toward effecting a consolidation. Inaulrles concerning the price of stock and the possibilities of combination, to- trcHier with the former attemnts to con solldate the companies, are reponslble for the recent rumors, he stated. The four companies concerned are the St. Louis, American, Brownell and Laclede Car com panies, the combined capitalization, of which would amount to $750,000, .the St. Louis Car Company alone being capitalized fit IS00.W0. End Came at 4:40 Yesterday Afternoon, His Wife Kneel ing by the Bedside. FUNERAL SUNDAY AFTERNOON. Body Will Lie in State at Cap itol Saturday Tributes to the Great Dead. Indianapolis, Ind., March 13. General Benjamin Harrison died at 4:13 o'clock this afternoon, without regaining consciousness. His death was quiet and painless, there be ing a gradual sinking until the end came, which was marked by a single gasp of breath ns life passed from the body of the great statesman. The relatives, with a few exceptions, and several of the fortner President's old and tried friends, wero at tho bedside when ho passed away. The General's condition was fo bad thl3 morning, after a. restless night, that the attending physiciaca understood that the end could not be far off. and all the bul letins sent out from the sickroon. were to this effect, to that the family nd friends were prepared when the final blow came. The gradual falling of the remarkable strength shown by the patient became more noticeable In tile afternoon, and a few moments before the end there was an ap parent breakdown on the part of the suf ferer 33 ho surrendered to the disease against which he had been so bravely bat tling for so many hours. The chungo was noticed by the phy sicians, and the relatives and friends, who had retired from the sickroom to the li brary below, wero quickly summoned and reached the bedsido of the General before he -passed away. IMUAXAI'OLIS IX MOCRXIXQ FOR HER. DISTINGUISHED DEAD. News of the death spread quickly through the city and several more intimate friends at once hurried to tho residence to offer services, which, however, were not needed. Tho word was flashed from the bulletins of all the newspapers, and thus communi cated to tho people on their way hotue in tho evening. The announcement produced the greatest porrow, nearly every one having nurtured tho hope that General Harrison would re cover. Within a. few moments the flags on nil the public buildings and most of the downtown buslnoss blocks were hoisted at half-mast and every outward manifestation of mourning was made. Only ono of General Harrison's children was present at his death. Neither Colonel Harrison nor Mrs. McKee bad reached the city, although both wero hurrying on their way to the bedside of their dying parent as fast as steam would bear them. Elizabeth, the little daughter, had been taken from the sickroom by her nurse before tho end came. MRS. HARRISON HELD HER HUSBAND'S HAND AS HE DIED. Tho group at tho bedside included Mrs. Harrison, W. H. II. Miller. Samuel Miller, his son; the Reverend M. L. Haynes, pas tor of the First Presbyterian Church, which General Harrison had attended for so many years; Secretary Tlbbett, Doctors Jameson and Dorsey; Colonel Dan Ransdell, Ser-geant-at-Arms of tho United States Sen ate and a close personal friend of the dead ex-President: Clifford Arrlck and the two nurses who have been In constant attend ance at the bedside. General Harrison's two sisters and an aunt were also present. Mrs. Harrison knelt at the right-hand side of tho bed, her husband's right hand grasped In hers, while Doctor Jameson held tho left hand of the dying man, counting the feeble pulse beats. A few moments after the friends had been summoned to tho room the end came. Doctor Jameson an nouncing the sad fact. The great silence that fell on the sor rowing watchers by the bedside was broken by the voice of Doctor Haines raised In prayer, supplicating consolation for the be reaved wlfo and family, mingled with the sobs of the mourners. Stsps were at once taken to notify the friezds and relatives abroad that the end had come. Colonel Ransdell dispatched tel egrams to prominent men at the national capital. Including the Indiana Senators. Messages to relatives In other cities were also dispatched Immediately. DIED WITHOUT RECOGNIZING ANY OF TnoSE NEAR. HIM. General Harrison bad been unconscious for hours before his death, tho exact time when he passed Into a comatose state being hard to determine. He spoke to no one to day and failed to recognize even his wife. The greater part of Tuesday, too, be was In a semiconscious condition, although be was at times able to recognize those at his bedside. At that time he recognized and spoke to Mra. Newcomer, his aunt, who had Just reached the home. He also spoke to Mr. Millar, the words belnff very Indistinct, however, only "Doctor" and "my lungs" being understood. Almost the test words he uttered were ad dressed to his wife, of whom be Inquired shortly before he became unconscious, If the doctors were present. One of tho most pathetic Incidents of the whole illness of the General occurred Tues day before he became unconscious. The General's little daughter, Elizabeth, was brought Into the sickroom for a few mo ments to see ner xatner ana ottered htm a small apple pie. which she herself had made. General Harrison smiled his recognl tlon of the child and her gift, but the effort to speak was too much, and he could do nothing to express his appreciation. To-day all effort3 to arouse the slowly dying man to consciousness failed, and he died without a word of recognition to any of the loved ones who surrounded him. FUNERAL NEXT SUNDAY BODY TO LIE IN STATE. The funeral will take place next Sun day afternoon at 2 o'clock. The services will be held In the First Presbyterian Church, of which General Harrison was a member for nearly fifty years. The Rev erend M. L. Haynes, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, will have charge of the services. This afternoon it was decided. at a meet ing of Governor Durbln with a number of the other State officers that the body of General Harrison should lie in stats In the rotunda of the Capitol all day next Saturday. The highest honors which It is in the power of the State of Indiana to pay will be renaerea to we remains ot uenerai Harrison.
