THE PITTSBURG- DISPATCH, FRIDAY, JANUARY ,18, 1889.
3d ADIEU TO BLACK AET. i -- Eeason and Superstition in Regard to the Divining Kod. A FAVORITE OLD IDEA EXPLODED. Tests by a Eesponsible Man That Failed UtterJjr in the Testing. THE CUKTAIN EUXG ON SUPERSTITION THE Black Art has been sat down upon. Sup erstition has re ceh ed a cold snub, ignorance and perhaps bliss of a certain kind must take a bark seat before the bright sunshine of the reason of the nineteenth century. The fra gile, witch hazel is no more, the playful divining rod is practically paralyzed. All this hap pened yesterday evening when a bright business man of the city entered this office, armed with a mj stic witch hazel, a pair of gold spectacles, and some chilly facts and state ments that made that mysterious witch hazel lairlv squirm The gentleman's full name, and position, and talc are given below, and though he sweeps aside the fond imagery of year, reason must have her sway. Countless oil prospectors, gas men and mineral fiends, who fondly hugged the elusive, mystical, mythical stick, over hill and dale, and lost or" won fortunes over its unaccountable dip, may take some exceptions to the demonstra tions given below, and be unwilling to con fers that they were fooled. Nevertheless, they were. . "W. Grier, proprietor of the Dexter Spring Company, located 11 miles north of this city, has been reading with interest the discussion going on in the columns of The Disfatch as to the virtue or efficiency of the divining rod, and yesterday lie lully demonstrated, with the aid of a flexible, forked witch hazel, just how and why it wai, besides giving some historical points that will interest every old oil and mineral prospector. "I think." said he, "that I can give you some practical information on the divining rod subject." A "DIVINING COMPANY." Dunne the groat oil excitement of 25 years ago, when the fever had seized even the stable business men 01 tms city, our pator, ite. It. 11 Bojd,now of California, Mich., a man of integrity and judgment, told me he bad seen a brothcr'preacher. Patterson by name, perform some marvelous feats with tbe divining rod. in discovering w ater, oil, or mineral veins. Mv friend Mr. Boyd was so sanguine thatl, tliougb Incredulous, was anxious to make some practi cal tests and tbe preliminaries were arranged lor a real oil divining company. Patterson and myself met at Petroleum Center, then the very heart of the tremendous oil craze, and tbe testing began. At Pitbole one day, I suggested that tbe tests begin, but he with great lil humor refused, but I insisted, and at 10 o'clock that night succeeded in draw ing him Into a new railroad grading about 500 feet long. I knew, though he was not aware of mj Knowledge, that but a few das belore he lia'd located at least 20 veins of oil within that 600 feet. Well, it wis very dark, and I directed him to grope bis way along the edge of the embank ment, sith bis divining rod held according to regulations, and whenever it turned, be was to lay a large nail at his heel. When we arrived at the end of the gride lasted him to retrace his steps and pro; e the correctness of bis loca tions. Every time he said he bad struck oil on tbe return trip. I stuck a large nail in tbe ground We then went over tbe grade again, and I laid a small nail at his point of divination and on coming back I stuck a small nail in the ground at his direction, and all the time we v. crc in complete darkness. THE FRAUD EXPOSED. We slept together that night, and early in tbe morning we sought tbe scene of our labors, and we found nails scattered every few feet along our track, and Patterson was greatlv discouraged, but! bad not done with him. 1 was sent np there by responsible men. Loci. -halt and Fiew, to investigate tbe thing and I was bound to do so. He was very nervous the night before and I suggested that be try it again and he started over the route. I followed behind, watching him closely, and every time bo stopped and dropped a nail, I asked, "Are you sure," and he ansn cred, "I am sure." He traversed the distance, and at about e ery 40 leet dropped a nan. lie then retraced his steps, and every time his rod dipped at the place he had previously dropped a nail. I had determined upon a final test, and asked him to please traerse it again. He did so and I followed His rod again pointed to the nails, but I quietly picked up each nail and carried It Rome 15 feet from where he had placed it, thus completely changing tbeir location. Patterson agreed to one more test, and walked back over tbe line, his miserable, fraud ulent rod pointing to the misplaced nails every time, thus convincing me that It was alia ridiculous fraud. There would have been a fortune in it for me and for him, as J. S. Pat terson, Lockbart and Frew and others were rich and responsible and trusting to my report. I told my gay divining agent of the fraud, and exposed it to my company, saying at the same time that no doubt manv good men were de ceived by the apparent turning of the fork in their bands. OIL UNDEE THE DISPATCH. "Here, let me show you," continued Mr. Grier, "how supremely ridiculous the idea is. Take an end of the fork in each hand, with the palm upward, you will find it re quires quite a muscular effort to hold it that way with the point toward the sky. 2sow hold it that way a minute. This was done, and gradually, in spite of all the listener could do, the fork turned until it pointed downward. "Perhaps," he mildly suggested, "perhaps there is oil under us here." "Oil, nonsense," said Mr. Greer, "there is a boiler and engine in your cellar, but no oil But let us try another location." Another location was tried, and with the same result. Tbe hazel invariaDly turned, and the explanation is simple. As it requires quite an effort to hold the hazel in the manner described, the muscles gradually become tired and relax, with the invariable result of a turning of the fork because the springy wood exerted a force sufficient to turn itself. If one were to go out in middle of the ocean and hold the hazel for oil, it would finally point down ward; or if a man were to 'stand on his head, the divining rod would finally point blankly upward. In connection with this it might be said that the pet theory of tbe divining rod be liever, is that like seeks like, therefore a green w itch hazel will point to water; a hazel capped with an oil-soaked ball will point to oil; a copper, or iron, or gold, or silver ball will point to its like, though no one ever tried to see whether a cap and bells would point to a fool. Another point brought out by Mr. Greer brings in a clinching argument." Suppose a deviation of even one inch were made from the center of an oil belt 2,500 feet deep. At the surface this slight inclination would throw the location 833 feet away from the center. However, the last and most convincing argument in the world need only be brought to bear to dissipate the pet delusions, com mon sense. Special Excursion to Washington, D.

Report of President Campbell About tbe Window Glass Workers Insldo Politi cal History Disclosed. President James Campbell, of the Win dow Glass "Workers' Association, has just issued his annual report. It will be printed in full in this week's issue of the Commoner and Glass Worker. From an advance proof are made the following abstracts : To-day the window glass workers' organiza tion stands pre-eminentlj in the lront ranks of the labor organizations of this country. Tho stand taken by the window glass workers' or ganization in the late election for President of tha United States was an advance step, un- looked for bv all parties, and paralyzed tho leaders of theDemocratlc rarty. Politicians do not fear workingmen's organi zations so long as they can keep them divided hi politics, but when tbey sec them united as the glass workers ere last fall, tbey know that they arc a power. The abuse heaped on your ofbeers in the late struggle is sufficient evi dence of that fact They tried to divide the members of L. A. 300 by slandering its officers, and.to the credit of tbe members, tbey failed to do so. To-day L. A. 300 is. stronger than e er before, and it is tbe dntv of the members to let judiciously and carefully ( in tbeir victor and guard well the advance step taken by the organization. I When j our officers announced to the public tbo fact that the window glass workers' organ I nation would furnish three speakers at their j own expense, and speak for tho Republican candidate for President, from tbe fact that the Republican platform guaranteed protection to I the American workmen and American indus tries, the leaders of tbe Democratic paity were atmrzed, and set their managers to work to off set the move. Mr. Tim O'Leary sent for John Costcllo. and wanted him to go into some of tbe I doubtful States and speak for Cleveland and i nurman. -Mr. jostcno came to see me to una out why tho window glass workers had taken the position politically as announced in the press before he would agree to go on the stump for the Democracy. I showed Mr. Costcllo wbat we had to con tend against In tho foreign competition of glass, and told him that wc bad made the same statements to the leaders of the Democratic part and they refused to consider our case as tbey should have done, and that it was a ques tion of bread and butter with L. A. 300, and not polities. Mr. Costcllo then Informed O'Leary that he bad seen Campbell and talked about the question and that he had decided not to go into those States and preach Democracy, as he bad no desire to injure the win dow glass workers. O'Leary then said to Costello (who is now a member of the General Executive Board of the Knights of Labor), "don't you pay any attention to Camp bell; the window class workers are making too much money now and tbeir wages ought to be reduced." Mr. O'Leary is now in the employ of the city of Pittsburg, receiving the sum of $7 a day for about six hours work, w bile tbe class workers pay a large amount of taxes to help keep him and support the high salary he receives from the city. While he receives a good salary lrom the city he is able to devote considerab'c of his time to tbe glass busi ness, so much so tbat be is now known as a prominent window glass manufacturer. The United States is the best market in the world forjwindow glass, and it is a detriment to the workmen, that over one-fourth of tbe glass consumed in this country is imported. There is some leason for it, and, if possible, the workers should know tho reason why and try and remedy so much glass coming into com petition wtth onr home-made article. There will always be some glass imported, but when over one tourth of tbe amount consumed is lm- Forted, though we have tbe capacity to manu acture more than tho country can consume, there is certainly something wrong, and, if possible, we should remedy the evil and have full and absolute control of our home market. Tho increase in the importation of window glass lat j ear and tbe large number of new furnaces in conrse of erection was tbe main reason why tbe wage committee of the West and North agreed to tbe section in the agree ment of the settlement of wages, regulating the time of starting and stopping, and there is no doubt now in the minds ot many of those who started ahead of time, but that tbe committee were right and it would have been much better for all bands if the agree ment would have been lived up to. The mem bers who have f onnd fault with tho committees have not offered any remedy or suggested any plan bv which we can control tbe production of window glass. An evil which seems to be on the increase, or, more properly speaking, a curse to the human famil, is the excessive use of liquor. It is the cause of more trouble, the cause ot members losing more money than all other evils com bined. I request all members who are in the habit of using liquor to excess, to stop, so that we may be better prepared to obtain the proper Ehare of the wealth wc create. It beats the rest, is what a druggist said speaking of Salvation Oil the great pain cure.
