Said to l)e Befining Tabooed Lima Crude, Sub-Bosa, TO MKTCITH KEYS1WE0IL J. A. Dubbs, a Pittsburg Expert, Back From Ohio With a Story. TANDEEGRIFT ABD GUFFEI BDI, And Their Eecent Sales to the Standard Pave the Way to More. THE OIL PEEL PIP LIKE TO CHICAGO Mr. J. A. Dubbs, of Pennsylvania ave nue, Allegheny, one or the oil refinery ex perts of the Lima (O.) field, arrived home Saturday evening from the district. He was seen at his residence by a Dispatch reporter, and interrogated in regard to the field, and what he had been doing in it. In reply to the reporter's queries Mr. Dubbs said: "I understand that Messrs. Guffeyand Vandergrift, of this city, are going back to the Iiima field again to lease more property. The latter recently sold a large track to the Standard Oil Company; but it seems he cannot keep away from the territory. The Standard will ultimately, of course, own everything in the region, as they are making heavy purchases almost every week. They now control about half the production of the field, and there aro thousands of acres they hold that have not been touched by a drill. "I have figured up that the Standard Com pany have about 12,000,000 barrels of oil tanked on the ground, and they are making successful efforts to prevent competition in the business of refining the oil. They liave 314 tanks in the whole field. Many of them have just been moved FEOJI THE PEJCTSTEYAIOA DISTRICT. "The largest of these tanks will hold about 40,000 barrels. The Standard Company has one six-inch nipeline from the field to Chicago, a U distance of 208 miles. Through this they pump , about 4,000 barrels per day. to be used in Chi- t capo as fuel. They have had a great amount of r trouble refining; the crude article. Oil has been W Ixrasrht in this city, and, when placed under a chemical analysis, has been found to contain a quantity of Lima oil. This shows that the Standard Company are adulteratingtheir Penn sylvania article with the despised and tabooed Lima stuff. The trouble In the Lima country has been to refine the oil. "When burned as an illuminant it makes a cloudy smoke that is distinctive from the fumes of any other oil. It looks to me as if the Standard Company were mixing the oil and educating the people to the point where they won't object to the smoke. They refine the oil on the cround and ship it to Cleveland or o'.:ct points east, where it is mixed with the saleable article. "Their method of refining is the old Can adian process, which has been used in the Dominion since 1862. It makes an imperfect oil, though, and they cannot eliminate the smell of sulphur from it. The Eagle Company use a process by which they get rid of all sulphur, and the oil, when burned for light, does not cloud the chimney or emit any disagreeable odor. The Eagle Comnany are refining about L200 barrels per day of this presumably unre finable article. THE PKODUCTIOJT AXD METHODS. "The production of the Lima field now is about from 30,000 to 32,000 barrels per day. A treat part of the territory is yet unworked. "The methods of the various companies is to lease five or six farms and put a well down on one of them to discover if there is any oil in the tract. They pay a yearly rental on tho other leased ground, and when they put down wells and strike anything, they pay the owner of the land a royalty of from one-tenth to a quarter of what they cet. The price has ad- jjf vanced this week from 15 to 17, and then to 20 jE cents. . "No, there is very little danger now of a tank y being struck by lightning. Formerly it was the tg- custom to run the pipes along the ground for a Pj considerable distance and then up over the I. edge of the tank. In nearly every case in the i;.-' Pennsylvania recion. where lichtning struck a r- tank the electric fluid ran along the pipes and ' jumped off the end of the conductor, which Jf1;" was always above the oil. The top of tho tank to., being filled with gas. when the electric spark H' jumped off the end of the pipe it set fire to the Si', gas and caused an explosion. Now all the g- pipes are run right into the oil Instead of the ends being exposed in a vapor." ILECiniC LIGHT CONSOLIDATION. Is the Final Deal Seine Made by Westing, house nnd Edison? H. Morrison, an old-time Eastern news paperman, butnowoneof the best-knownmen in the electric light business, and David E. Evans, of Baltimore, arrived in the city last evening. They are here to confer with Mr. George Westinghouse in regard to the electric lichtinc business. It is well understood, elec tric men say, that the negotiations for the com bination of the Westingbouse and Edison com panies' interests, which have already been fully detailed in The Dispatch, are now Hearing completion, and electric light men all over the country are "hurrying to get in out of the wet" before the consolidation takes place. Mr. Morrison would not say last evening when the final arrangements would be made, but, from his manner, it was inferred that they may be looked for any day. YERI FEW STBAGGLEES. Only a Handful of People Leave for Wash ington Last KIgbt. The early morning trains yesterday via the Pennsylvania Railroad and Baltimore and Ohio roads carried a large number of people east to "Washington. Last night there were few people at either station bound for the capital. A great many of those who had intended going last evening had their en thusiasm dampened by the inclement weather all over the country, and concluded at the last moment to stay at home. Among those who left last night were Profs. George J. Luckey. City Superintendent of Schools, and Samuel Andrews. Principal of the Howard School: Dr. James E. "Wilson, of Jit. Washington, anl C. L. Hannam, of this citv. There were a few who went down just to Stay a day and come back to-morrow morning. THE KIDS WERE CAUGHT. Thcj Tried a Wylie Avenue Grocery Store This Time. Two boys, named Gus. Hoover and Thom ss Eichardson, or "Peaser" Bichardson, as he is called on account of his diminutive stature, were caught yesterday evening by Officer Terry in McTeer's grocery store, at the comer of Wylie and Webster streetshelp ing themselves to the goods. They were taken, per-patrol wagon, to the Eleventh ward station bouse, and were not at all disconcerted by their arrest. Richardson has already seen the inside of the reform school and jail, although only about 16. Thev are suspected of membership in the "Owl Gang." A boy named Massey was also arrested last night, on a warrant, being charged with com plicity in some late thieveries on the hilL MICHAEL MUERAr RECOVERING, The Philadelphia Company Pay for Their Part of the Damage. Michael Murray, the man who was so se riously hurt by the explosion of natural gas in his house on Brownsville avenue, South side, last Wednesday, is rapidly recovering Tom his Injuries. It was learned yesterday that the Philadel phia Company has already satisfactorily set tled for the amount of damage done by the explosion to the building. GODFREY WILL K0T DIE. The Drunken Stnbblnjc Affray Probably Not Fntal Jealousy the Cause The Cotter, Connolly, Not Arrested. The man Godfrey, who was thought to have been fatally stabbed early yesterday morning in a house on the Hill, under the Seventeenth street incline, is now said to be improving, and there are no doubts that he will recover. The cuts were evidently made with a penknife. There is a long gash at the back of his neck, and a cut four inches long over his groin, through which the -intestines were protruding. The story of the affair, as told hy'lnspector McAleese, is that two men, Godfrey and Con nolly, with two women, Anna King and Mollie Staub, were in the house drinking heavily and carousing. The two men were quite friendly, but one is an Orangeman, and tho other is not, and they drifted from ribald songs into a talk, and finally a quarrel on religion' and politics. A scuffle ensued, and Godfrey was cut. Somo idea of the drunken condition of the party may be given when it is known the wounded man lay on the floor bleeding profusely for half an hour before 'either he or his woman companions knew he was cut. Tho women were arrested and are in Central station. No reliance is placed on their stories, as they appear to have but a hazy idea of what occurred. McAleese has men all over the city watching for Connolly, and in all probability he will be arrested before morning. Atone time yesterday it was thought God Trey would become delirious, and, if acute in flammation set in, be would die. In order to anticipate any such ovent, the Inspector had his swom statement taken as follows: I, James Godfrey, a resident of Pittsburg, at 49 Ilazcl street, do make this statement, being serionslr injured and not knowing if I will re cover: This moraine Marcb S. ISSSt Mike Con nolly, two women and myself were drinking at the house of Ann King. 131 Crescent alley, near the Seventeenth street incline. We had some word In the evening before this; he tore my shirt at that time. At the tLne of the occurrence the two women were sitting on the bed. He was fool ing with Anna King, wben the other woman. Jlary Staub, got up and came into the other room where I was. She was mad at Hike for fooling with Anna. Alike came into the room after her. I don't remember what I said bnt he struck me. I cannot say whether I struck back or not, but be knocked me down and commenced kicking me. I cannot say if It was then lie cut me. 1 don't know at what time in the struggle he-cufcine: it was dark in the room. As soon as I told him he had cut me he ran out of tho house. I followed him into the next house. This occurred about 3 o'clock in the morning of March 3. I am an unmarried man. Early In the evening when Connolly and I had the words he said he would knock my brains out or kick my brains out. I never ha J any quarrel with him before. Con nolly came to the house by himself that evening. A PECULIAR DEATH. A Man Falls on the Rnilrond and Breaks His Neck on the Rail. An inquest was held yesterday on the the remains of "William Boesch, who fell on the railroad track at Hazeltine station, Pittsburgh, Chartiers and Xoughiogheny Railroad, Saturday night, receiving injuries from which he died a few hours later. Boesch had gone to Mansfield Saturday night to get a jug of whisky to use at hts sister's wedding, which was to have taken place yesterday. While at Mansfield he took several drinks and then started home. About 10:30 o'clock he knocked at the door of the house of John Wilson, near Hazeltine. Wilson opened the door just as Boesch fell to the ground. He was bleeding profusely and said be had fallen on the track and broken his neck on the rail. His parents were sent for, and before he died Boesch told his father that he had been run ning from parties who were chasing him. No importance was attached to the latter state ment, owing to his mental condition at the time. The jury returned a verdict of acci dental death. WAS NOT SUSPENDED. Inspector Stevens Asked for a Release and Denies tho Charge. George Stevens, the Inspector of the Southside Police Department, while speak ing of the charge made against him by Miss Best, said to a reporter for this paper last night: "Chief Brown did not suspend me, but I asked him to relieve me of my position while the case is pending. Further than that I will only say again that I deny the charge. It was simply concocted against me Decause these people thought that sooner than have my name dragged into publicity in connection with a scandal of that kind I would be willing to do anything in order to save my position. But they will find that they made a mistake." Inspector Stevens laughed at the rumor that other officers connected with the Third police district were to be arrested for being impli cated in the affair. CONVENIENT CURBSTONES. Almost Another Tragedy at That UslySoho Street Wall. The inhabitants of the Hill districts were not particularly elated at the condition of the streets out there yesterday, and the four inch curbstones had to do plenty ot pavement duty. It was an amusing sight to see perhaps a dozen people at a time carefully picking their way along the curbs, and occasionally stepping into the surrounding mud as they lost their equilibrium. No accident occurred, except at the Soho street walL Here a young man, while walking along the top, slipped and would have been precipitated an ugly distance, but for the time ly grasp of his companions. This is an exceedingly dangerous spot, it being only a few months ago when a boy was killed here by falling over the wall, and the residents complain at the lack of attention on the cart of the city officials. A FEROCIOUS CANINE. A Man Is Attacked and Badly Bitten by a Dos In His Own Back Yard. Mr. "William Wise, a well-known glass blower of the Southside, had both his hands badly bitten by a Newfoundland dog a few days ago. The animal, a big brute, en tered Wise's back yard, and when the man at tempted to scare him off the dog jumped at him and tore a piece out of his left hand. Wise then ran into the house for a revolver and fifed several shots at the Newfoundland, but with out mnch effect. Two men from the patrol wagon stable near by, attracted by the noise, came to the man's assistance and the ferocious canine was killed. Nobody knew whose property the dog was.- Mr. Wise immediately had the wounds cau terized by Mr. Lowe, to avoid hydrophobia. LOCAL IRISHMEN REJOICE. Branch 621 of the Irish National League Meets and Discusses. Branch 621 of the Irish National League held its regular meeting in St. Andrew's Hall yesterday and elected officers for the ensuing year and transacted considerable busi ness, inclnding the initiation of 20 new mem bers. The members had a long discussion on the Parnell trial, and the moreprominent of those who spoke were Messrs. Parcell, Goode and Lynch. They expressed heartfelt sympathy for the Irish patriot and satisfactions at the de feat ot the limes. STRONG ANTI-PROHIBITIONISTS. The Mechanics' Library Association's Straw Vote on the Question. The members of the Mechanics' Library Association on the Sonthside have taken a straw .vote on the prohibition amendment, the result being that there are only three in the organization was will vote for the measure. The club is one of the oldest societies on the Southside. it having been in existence for over 21 years. The membership is principally; com posed of workingmen who work in the South side mills and glass houses. There are now 84 members in the club. AN AMATEUR ACTOR Loses a Watch and Money, nnd the Man user Is Accused as the Thief. A young man from McKeesport, named Stanley, complained to Inspector McAleese last night and wanted to have a man named Langdon, who had gone to Altoona, arrest ed. He claimed that Langdon had organized a theatrical company, representing that he was conn ected with the Bijou Theater company, of New York. The company started ont last Thursday from this city with eight persons in the troupe, and gave a performance at Glenwood. Stanley claims that Langon skipped with receipts, $10, and a silver watch which Stanley's mother had given to him and which Langdon borrowed.

TWO M0EPHYS FAVOR THE MOVE. Broadax Smith Makes the Greatest Effort . of His Life in Song. WISE WORDS FROM NATIONAL TALKERS The first of a series of meetings in a most unique campaign, that bids fair to rival any previous movement in which women have taken part, was held in the Grand Opera House last night. It was the first perfectly organized "union" Constitutional amendment gathering, and fully 3,000 people had come in spite of the wet night to listen to the eloquent speeches of well-known men and to laugh and ap plaud a man no less well known, Broadax Smith, who certainly made a decided hit. Dr. Harry Bullen, as Chairman, an nounced the opening hymn as "All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name," and the im mense audience rose as one man and woman, and joined in the chorus with a hearty good will. Mr. L. F. Cole, of Wisconsin, organizer of the Independent Order of Good Templars, arose and read a few appropriate passages from the Scriptures, which he interpolated with a few remarks of his own, calling atten tion to some certain points in the verses. A. M. Brown, President of tho Murphy Gospel Temperance Union, made a pleasing and elo quent prayer, and asked for heavenly aid In the great combat about to be inaugurated. At the conclusion of this prayer everybody was horrified at a ripple of applause that ran from gallery to gallery; but the imagined sac rilege was notintended;the applause was for the well-known and favorito temperance speaker, young Ed. Murphy, who had just entered and taken a seat on the stage. ONLY ONE OP MANY. Chairman Bullen then arose, and told the audience the meeting and other meetings that were to follow were all composed of a union of many forces allied against oneintemperance. He said he did not care to mako bis speech just tnen; but ho had a daisy in reserve that he had spent a whole week in preparing. Another round of applause greeted Murphy, wnotnanked the audience and said he could say but little. Continuing, he said the meeting and the platform were broad enough to cover the whole family, and told a funny story to il lustrate his point, ic which he created a laugh by saying woman's curiosity could be only equaled by man's inquisitlveness. He said: "The earnest, patriotic spirit in the cause will take in all, of any creed or political belief, and by the blessing of God we cannot but succeed. There are two great principles in this world, formation and reformation. Reforms are the life of the world, and they will continue just as long as the world stands. We have seen it in ancient history, and we shall see it in modern. "The Inconsistency of the argument that the minority is wrong, is plain to us all, judging from events, and history is onr most perfect criterion. The patriotism, the loyalty and the justice of this great Commonwealth is aroused, and, if we are in the minority, we have the sweet thought that we are right. We, tho peo ple, have a duty to perform, and we must per form it honestly. We must weigh the question carefully, and if it is best for honesty, morality, and truth and freedom that the saloon should stay, let it remain; but if it. is against religion, against purity and virtue, against God and man, then, for God's sake, let it become a thing of the past! "I am not hereto denounce the soloonkeeper, for he is a creature of tho citizens.' If it is a crime to sell whisky, it is a crime to buy it. I will not speak nnkindlyto him; but if the saloonkeeper only knew what A BLESSING IT WOULD BE to his wife and family and self ifhewonldget out of the business, I really do not think we understand each other. Why, I once knew a young man who was on the point of proposing to his girl when he felt a lnmp in his throat. Did you ever feel that way? A piping voice from the gallery, 'Yes,' caused a laugh, as the self-confessed lover couldn't have been over 10. Continuing he said: "Now, I want to say that, so far as I am con cerned, my best efforts shall be directed toward furthering tho cause of this holy re form. Then, again, I want to say a word about a good, a brave and an unselfish man. 1 want to say a word about my father. Some people say he is opposed to this amendment. Now, that is wrong. He is in favor of it in every way pos sible. I cannot say that he will take the stump in this cause, for his work lies in "individual total abstinence, and there are no men here on this platform or in the house who will not say God speed." Applause. Dr. Bullen then arose with his little speech and there was a point in it. He said the Opera House had been rented for three months, at 540 per week, and he wanted to raise $1,000 and asked for some man to start an offer of $25. There was no response and he asked for an of fer of $10. Several hands were at once raised, and the collectors were started out; but, by that time, the hands were withdrawn and he ran on down the list until SI was reached, and the baskets were turned loose among the au dience with great results, especially after it was announced that Broker J. K. Johnson had sub scribed $40 to pay for the house. THE MISSOUEI FOBEIGNEB. John Sobieski, lecturer forihe Grand Lodge of L O. G. T., a large, foreign gentleman with strong face and a strong, deep voice, was intro duced. Ho laughed at the unique introduction he received, and said he did not come from the royal family of Poland, and the only thing he ever did wrong was to be elected to the Legis lature. He said he had been enlisted in the cause of justice, and was bending his best ef forts in this cause, and it was simply justice that the crime of the liquor traffic be wiped out, that women and childien might be safe on the streets by day or night. He came, be said, from that grand old con servative State of Missouri, where one must go SOO miles from his home before a licensed dram shop was reached. He said he was imported goods, but bad been in the late war. He then melted away from the question entirely, and delivered a most beautiful and poetic oration upon freedom and America, and drew a strik ing parallel between the two epochs in the his tory of freedom. Joseph R. Hunter said he was a part of the union movement. He may have disagreed with some people. He believed in individual suasion, and that when Francis Murphy began his work years ago, he began a work that had culminated in the present movement. John D. Bailey also said a few words of encouragement and cheer, and Judge Shannon arose and said: "I feel it not amiss that I should come for ward to just merely intimate that, so far as one individual is concerned, 1 am with this meeting in its designs and its intentions. This move ment is NOT A WILD WAVE of fanaticism, but has been growing broader, wider and greater for half century in this latyi; and then what a strange canvass we have entered upon." He then referred to a deci sion of the Supreme Court as to the police power of the State, and ended with an elo quent appeal to the good sense, and made a plea for the support, of the young men. Here loud calls arose for "Broadax! Broadax!" and that inimitable character and orator stepped forward 'and made the hit of his life. He said: "The liquor traffic is here, and I am going to ask you, like Boss Tweed, who stole New York, and went back after Harlem river: What are you going to do about it?' We must physic (he devil out of this country! A great man once said a country could not be half enslaved and half free; and I say we can't be half drunk and half sober. I want to sing yon' a little song I composed when my toes stuck out, and I wore linen dusters in December." The song was sung, and, as Broadax- has a splendid bass voice, it "caught on" like wild fire, and the most tremendous applause of the evening rewarded him, while many strangers on the stage were amazed at his wit and his voice. The song was cleverlv worded, and to the tune of "Just Before the Battle, Mother," the rattling chorus was: "Farewell, whisky, you shall never Bring inc to disgrace again!" TMs practically broke up the meeting, and everybody left ih a good humor and talking of Broadax's great effort. About 860 was raised during the evening. Captain J. K. Barbour will preside next Sunday evening, and the well known local temperance workers will be pres ent, as usual, besides several foreign speakers. WILL K0T PARADE. St. Patrick' Day Fall on Sunday, So HI bernlnns Stay Within. At a meeting of the Ancient Order of Hibernians last night, it was decided not to hold the usaal parade on-St. Patrick's Day this, year, as the day will fall on Sunday. Some sort ot appropriate celebration will be held the .fol lowing Monday, but the organization as a body will not hold any demonstration. PITTSBURG DISPATGH, THUNDERER AND THIEF. ; The London TimesFiasco Senthlnaly Treated, by Hev. Dr. Donelioor-Scrmon for Plot ters and Sinner to Remember. , Rev. E. B. Donehoo, pastor of the Eighth Presbyterian Church, preached yesterday morning a sermon in which the London Times fiasco was considered. Limited space this morning necessitates only the briefest condensation of the" entertaining report thereof prepared for The Dispatch. Tie text, from Psalm vii., 15-16, was: "He made a pit, and digged it, and has fallen into the ditch which he made. His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate." Dr. Donehoo, among other good things, said: There is a poetic justice in this method of divine administration which commends itself to our judgment as often as it is manifested. The trouble with most of us is that we only call this principle into effective operation when considering the sms and follies of others. But the retributive principle prevails all through the Scriptures. "ThouRh the mills of God grind slowly, yet they grind exceeding small; Though with patience He stands waiting, with exactness grinds He all." , In every-day life there are abundant con-firma-Jons of this law. Through avarice, wan tonness, revenge, men prepare traps for others, only in the end to fall into them themselves. We have had a dramatic, yet no less literal 11 ustration of the workings of this principle in the case of that insolently stolid newspaper, which has long arrogated to itself the title of "The Thunderer." I refer to the London Timet and its cruel and unjustifiable assaults upon one of the bravest and truest advocates of human rights against tyrannical usurpation of power that has appeared in this Nineteenth Century, Charles Stewart Parnell. Hehasbeenhounded as a thief, denounced as a traitor, hunted as a murderer, stigmatized as a- companion of cut throats and vilest criminals. No report against him has been regarded as too abominable for credence, no weapon too mean to' be employed, no device too contemptible for the purpose. Every detailer and manufacturer of scandal has been eagerly welcomed, forgery and lying have been accounted becoming methods of assault upon that silent, courageous friend of a down-trodden people. Out of all this deluge of abuse has devel oped an investigation of Mr. Parnell, in which his prosecution is conducted by that powerful journal and backed up by all the authority and influence of the Government now in power in Great Britain. To-day that haughty dictator of public opinion, that dishonored persecutor of a pure-minded aud noble statesman, who with that "Grand Old Man," Gladstone, is fight ing as worthy a cause as ever was Baptized with patriot blood, is crushed, defeated and exposed to the derisive contempt of the whole world. The words of Israel's royal bard never applied with more appropriateness than they do to-day to the conductor of tho silenced "Thun derer:" "He made a pit and digged it. and is fallen into the ditch which he made. His mis-, chief has returned npon his own head, and his violent dealings upon his own pate." And the miserable wretch who served the purpose of the Times, when his work was done, and his SO pieces of silver safe in bis posses sion, like his worthy predecessor, Judas Iscariot, made confession of his villainy, and then, with the sound of the pursuing Nemesis close upon bis track, fled away to a strange land and destroyed his worthless life, a terrible illustration of the old truth that "vengeance will overtake the transgressor." KICKED BI A CRAZY MAN. A Case of Typhoid Fever Results in Insanity for a Farmer. A very inoffensive passenger on the Penn sylvania Bailroad had the pleasure of being kicked in the back by a crazy man last night. About 8:10 o'clock there drove up to the Union station a carnage containing four men. The horses were covered with foam and the wheels spattered with mud, as" if they had come a great distance. One of the men alighted, and then attempted to lift another man ont. The latter objected. The two other men then had to drag him, and, with one on each side and one in the rear, they pushed and dragged him along until they got to the gate. An innocent passenger, attracted by the noise and yells the man made for free dom, got in the way, and. before he could get out of the road, he was crazlly kicked in the back. The' man who kicked made an. attempt to run at everybody who got In front of him, and' was only prevented from doing harm by his captors. The latter dragged him along, and had to fairly carry him into the coach. It was then found that be was Gilbert Myers, of Westmoreland county, and be was being taken to the Warren Insane Asylum for treat ment. He was a farmer living along the banks of the Youghlogheny river, and, about a year ago, had an attack of typhoid fever. It affected his mind, and he has been growing worse since. Last night he wanted to kill his two brothers (who were with him), by running a red-hot poker through their hearts. The party had driven 23 miles in the carriage in the afternoon. ANOTHER YERI BOLD BAPTISM. A Colored Octet Go Down Into thoAUc fiheny Before Many Witnesses. The banks of the Allegheny river, as well as the boats and barges on both sides, were lined with enrious crowds yesterday after noon, to witness the baptism of eight colored converts of an Allegheny colored congrega tion. The snow-clad banks and drizzling of snow and rain that had just commenced, gave many of the curious spectators a sympathetic shiver as tho colored preacher bravely waded out from the Allegheny, with a pole to find his way, until he was up to his arm-pits. When be had found a suitable spot he beck oned to four colored women on the banks, who waded out to him with black dresses on, and white caps (not the threatening kind). There was an agitation of the waters followed by a shiver and several other manifestations of dis comfort from each, and the four waded backto shore. , Four men then braved the rigors of the deep as the spectators drew their overcoats involun tarily around themselves. The preacher had hard work bringing one of the male candi dates up, and the baptized man gnrgled as though ne was nearly drowned, but finally re gained his feet and waded ashore amid the singing of the vast congregation. A TICTIM OP BASEBALL. The Serious Condition of a Well-Known Young '.Man From a Wound. Edward Burns, a well-known young man in baseball circles, is thought to be dying of consumption, at his home in Lawrenceville, from the effects of being hit with a baseball a year aco last spring. After playing here with local clubs, Mr. Burns went to Utica, N. Y., to try his hand as a professional. His. career was short. A ball struck him on the side, crushing in one of his ribs, and injuring one lung so seriously-thac consumption resulted. The case is particularly interesting, inasmuch as it is' said to clash with the germ theory of consumption, as demonstrated by advanced physicians. Chose His Own Pall'Bearers. Fireman Charles Clark, of Engine Company No.. 9, after suffering intensely, and fasting for nearly a week, life hanging but by a thread, at last received a still alarm Saturday at 11:30 p. si., and the last spark of life was extinguished. He chose four ot his own pall bearers, and asked the chief to choose the other two. Fun eral Monuay at 2 o'clock p. H. LOCAL ITEMS, .LIMITED.

He spoke of the neces sity of parochial schools in this country, and contrasted them with the public schools. DEEMED AN IMPOSSIBILITY. He said a. Catholic child could not be edu cated properly in a public school, and an edu cation without religious training was almost valueless in the sight of God. He advised his auditors to send their children to the new school, where they would not only receive a worldly education, but be taught their religion as well. Mrs. Edward Frauenheim, one of the most zealous members of the parish, entertained the priests at'dlnner in the schoolhousc, and, at 3 o'clock, pontifical vespers were said in the church. As at the morning service, Bishop Kane was the celebrant, and he was assisted as follows: Assistant priest. Very Rev. Father Wall, rector of St. Paul's Cathedral;' deacon, Very Rev. Father Werner; assistant deasons. Father Tobin, pastor'of St Mary's Church, and Father Lambing, of Wilklnsburg, the historian of the diocese; sub-deacon. Father Schwab, ot the Holy Ghost order; masters of ceremonies, FathersGreeoryandChrystume. After vespers a solemn procession of the clergy marched to the schoolhousc, where the blessing of the building was pronounced by Bishop Phelan. The sermon was delivered by Bishop Kane, and among other things be said: "It is quite fitting, my dear brethren, that I should address you from the holy sanctuary of the church on the objects "of the school build ing about to be so solemnly blessed. I would like to explain to you why this ceremony of re ligion is performed on an occasion like the com pletion of a building erected for educational purposes. DEVOTION AND -EMULATION; "For in this building, erected by your gener osity, a monument to your liberality and your devotion to the holy canse ot education for years to come, you show your devotion to the principles of the Holy Catholic Church. Your devoted attachment should be handed down to your children, and by them to their children, to be loved and praised. "Religion and science mnst go hand in hand. The inculcation of religious ideas is as much a necessity as are the principles of natural sciences. Why does our Holy Church think that this is rightT You learn it on the first page of your Catechism. Your ancestors for generations.have heard the first truths that we were put in this world by God for one only purpose, the sanctlfication and mortification of our eternal souls. This is the grand and noble destiny of every man in this world, and the Christian cannotlose sight of it, "There are other ideas different from those held by our Holy Church. I do not say that the principles of our church on education are indorsed by the whole people. There are voices outside our church that have raised their 'hands against it. They say the system of edu cation is not right, and we have professors in some ot onr most notea cnurcnes entering a protest against the divorce of religion and edu cation. "It is folly In this age to speak of morality, unless morality is based on religion. There is and has been, a morality that is nothing more or less than a pagan morality. In the minds of our children should be a morality that is taught by our Lord Jesus Christ. So positive is the Catholic Church, not only in this country, but all over the world. In the matter of incul cating into the minds of our children the teach ings of Christ, that a great many of our non Catholic people say that the Catholic Cnurch is opposed to education, or opposed to a free school or public school system. THE CATHOLIC IDEA. "I will give you my opinion, the same as I gave it to men of common sense and a knowl edge of the world. I do not claim that it has the i ndoreement of the church. It is that the State ought Indeed to give its help and assist ance toward the education of those children whose parents or guardians have not the means in their power to give it to them. The educa tion of these children is absolutely necessary, in order to mako good citizens, and, through good citizens, make a good country. When parents have the ability and means of their own. it is compulsory upon them to educate their children, just as much as It is to clothe and feed them, and the State has no business to interfere. "If you have .in your immediate neighbor hood a dozen hard-working men who make their living for themselves and their wives, and others depending upon them, the State comes to them and says to one of them that man mnst contribute toward the expense of maintaining the public school system. While he has no children going to the school, the tax collector says he must pay for the education of tbe-rich man's children, whose father is draw ing thousands of dollars yearly, and who could afford to educate them himself. In my humble opinion, this is all. wrong. The poor man has no more duty to nay for the edu cation of this man's child than he has to pay tor tne cnua's ;ooa and clotning. We are living in a democratic form of gov- . ernment, and the ma jority must rule. We must acquiesce in a spirit of duty, and I think the Catholics do so. The people who think that a Catholic school is something modern have not read history. At the general council of the Church in Aix-la-Chapelle, In 719. they made it obligatory on the pastors of souls to provide schools, so that all the children might bo edu cated, and the parochial school is an institu tion for the education of the children of the poor. FBEE IBELANDASEDUCATOB. "Look at Ireland when it was free. It was called the center of learning in Europe. People sent their children from all parts of the world to be taught by Irish professors, who in time went out and occupied all the higher chairs of educational universities. In our own country there's not a town large-enough to support a parish that hasn't got its parochial school. Have not the Dlshops said time and again that the school is more important than the Church unless it grows up side by side with it T "WeareoDiigea iu nave parocmai scnoois, because the other free institutions hare not given us an opportunity to send onr children to them with sale consciences. Why, it is almost criminal to agitate the public school system and point out its defects." ' The speaker closed by saying that the church must build its own schools and provide its own teachers, who, by example and precept, would inculcate in the minds and hearts of the chil dren the holy spirit of religion. He gave statistics furnished by Bishop Phelan, who made a report of an investigation at the River side Penitentiary. He found in two years not one of the inmates had been, educated in a parochial school. Some of them" had been edu cated in private schools, and over 90 per cent of the whole nnmber "had received their in structions in the public schools. THE EDIFICE DESCBIBED. The new St. Augustine school building stands across the street from the side of the church, just above Butler street. It was built almost entirely of brick and stone, and is one the finest school building in the State. The corner stone was laid the first Sunday In July last, and the cost of the structure has been nearly $43,000, It is three stories in height and contains 12 rooms, four on each story. The rooms are 24x 30 feet and are fitted up with the best hard wood furniture The entrance is gained by ascending half a dozen steps. The vestibule or hall is 12 feet wide and two 6-foot stairways, one on each side, lead to the second floor. Each room has cloakrooms and washstands with a separate retiring room for teachers. A double fire escape crossing itself in the form of an X connects with each room on both sides of the building. In the basement will be a bowling alley and other rooms for the use of the St. Augustine societies. Tne building will be heated entirely by steam from a double boiler in the cellar. The following-named gentlemen compose the building committee 'and It is 'due to their 1889. efforts that the magnificent structure, was erected: A Frauenheim. L. Kreckler; P.

A Lecture at St. Man's Church by Rev. Father Wlrtembncb St. Vincent de Paul and Bis Great Work. ' Bev. Father.Wirtembach delivered a'lec tnre on "Saint Vincent de Paul and his Great Works Throughout the World," last night at St. Mary's Church, Lawrenceville. The proceeds were for the benefit of Bt. Mary's Conference of St Vincent de Paul. The following is a brief synopsis of his lecture, which was listened to by a large audience: "In the small town of Pouy, in the province of Gascony, France, John de Paul tilled his land in the latter part of the sixteenth century. He was blessed with six children, among them Vincent, who watched the flocks in the shadow of the Pyrenees. His father wished him to be a priest, and. throngh the generosity of friends, he graduated at Turin University. "He became a priest, consecrated himself to charitable work, and seeing the need of char itable Institutions to help France'; condition, in the little town of Chartres. near Paris, gath ered together those in sympathy with his ideas and there founded the Sisters of Charity, so powerful to-day, and which has enlarged into hospital work and all the benevolent works of this kind in the church to-day. "He went to the galleys of Marseilles, and seeing the need of the condemned and other prisoners to have some one to confide in, he founded the church's present confessional. "To Vincent de Paul is due the principal part of work of the Reformation in France. He gave the world the Sisters of Charity, Priest's Retreat, and an idea of gathering the children from the streets and educating them. After over 200 years Vincent de Paul still lives in his works, and will lire as long as lives the church."
