Tgr.'Jt-'-jwj.mi'-M ygycgy ' ' T3 "s AGEES0F ME. Hubbard's Mammotli Ax fac tory is Totally Destroyed. A HALF MILLION DOLLAES Will Barely Cover the Great Loss Sus tained by the Company. THE ORIGIN KE1IAIKS A MISTERY. Hundreds of Hen Are Thrown Idle and Lose Valuable Tools. THE FIKII TVAS IKSDKED FOR $165,000 The mellow-toned church bells had scarce ceased to disturb the calmness of the bright spring morning, when the harsh jingle of the ever-dreaded fire alarm broke the still ness of the Sabbath day and awoke the echoes of a thousand tongues. The wor shiper ceased his prayers for a moment, the sluggard turned over in his bed, and a host of others dropped their tasks and counted one, two, three, a pause; one, two, three, four, a second panse, and then one, and a longer stop 311, corner of Forty-eighth street and the Allegheny Valley Railroad, the most dreaded box in Lawrenceville, sit uated in the very midst of a manufacturing district. A signal from there means a fire and a loss to all. A brief interval, and through the streets there rushed many en gines with clanging gongs. The call yesterday morning might well have been dreaded: for, in the brief space of a few hours, losses to the extent of half a million of dollars had been sustained, and hundreds of men had been thrown idle, both in this city and at Beaver Falls. The largest ax and shovel factory in the United States had been totally destroyed by fire. FOTJB ACRES LAID BABE. The mammoth works of Hubbard & Co., eituated on the comer of Forty-eighth and A. V. Vi. E., covering four acres of ground, were totally destroyed by this fire. The loss is estimated by the proprietors at 5500,000. The firm carried about f 175,000 insurance, distributed in various foreign and domestic companies, through the Arrott agency. The cause of the fire is a mystery. It was first noticed in the lower part of the saw de partment, and thence spread with almost in credible rapidity until the entire plant was a mass of flames. Members of Engine Company So. 6, on Forty-fourth street, noticed the flames, and had their horses hitched up and in readiness to start before the first stroke sounded on the big belL As soon as Assistant Chief Coates arrived on the grounds he called out a second district, and also sent out a hose call. It was impossible at that point to handle more engines than this; but a fire boat would have been invaluable in the ser vice. There weie five two-story frame buildings on the plot of ground. The largest was the saw and ax department, a building about 70x350 feet. It was in the lower part of this khop that the fire originated. Situated on a wind-swept river bottom, the stiff inland breeze blowing across it had full play upon the flames. "With a rush the flames leaped from one oil-soaked pillar to another, and, like a devil fish, threw out its myriad arms to draw in its prey. In a mo ment the building was ablaze, and its fate was sealed. ALLEYS NO IMPEDIMENT. Leaping across a narrow alley, the fire seized upon the machine shop situated on the left of the first building, while on its right tbey engulfed another section of the plant. In the rear were the stables and the ax finishing department, the latter contain ing several huge vats of oil and grease, furnishing excellent food for the flames. It was thought at first that the machine and hammer shop could be saved; but, after a hard fight, the firemen had to retire. Many of the hammers in the shop were saved, but the timbers beneath them will have to be replaced, The offices of the firm at the works were completely guited, and a large number of books and papers are lost. Situated near the works was a small frame house, owned by the firm, and occu pied by Mr. H. P. Hubbard the draughts man. It withstood the flames long enough to permit much of Mr. Hubbard's house hold goods to be removed and then sud denly burst into flames. It was completely destroyed. The buildings of McConway & Torley's foundry, on the opposite side of the street, were ignited, but, through the efforts of Chief Coates, the flames here were extin guished without any serious loss. The pattern shop, containing many val uable patterns, was destroyed. Mr. "Hub bard, the draughtsman, lost 51,200 worth of tools. Many of the men lost kits of tools valued at from 550 to 5100 each. There were 350 men employed in the works. Nearly all of these were skilled workmen. Only about 20 laborers were employed about the works. HOW- FAB-BEACHING IT WAS. The firm was making 3,500 axes a day, and 960 dozen had been prepared for ship ment to-day. They now lie on the river bank, a mass of ruined steel. Six hundred thousand pounds of shovel stock steel had just been received and was badly damaged, if not totally destroyed. Fifteen thousand shovel handles were destroyed. Chief Coates and his men worked hard to check the flames, and deserve much credit; but the heat was overpowering. There were a large number of grindstones in the ax de partment "When these were struck by water alter being heated, they burst with loud re ports scattering pieces throughout the burn ing buildings. The firm is composed of Messrs. C. X. Hubbard, Charles Lockhart, David Long, S. A. Rankin add "W. A. Frew. Mr. Hub bard was on the grounds yesterday alter noon. He said. "The loss is apparently total. I can hardly even approximate an estimate. It may reach 5500,000. The greatest loss is on the'machinery, and stock on hands. We were just about to commence shipments. Some of the machinery has taken usl5years to perfect, and it cannot be replaced. The insurance is between 5150,000 and 5200,000. I think it is $105,000. It is placed in several foreign and domestic companies, represented here by J. "V. Arrott & Co., -all the mem bers of whose firm reside down the Ft, Wayne Bailroad at Osborne." Another member of the firm and Manager Murphy placed their loss at 5500,000, al though this is said to be overestimated. The ruin is complete, however, and it is about as desolate looking a spot as can be seen just at present THEY "WILL BEBUILD SOON. Mr. Hubbard also stated that, as soon as the loss is adjusted and the insurance col lected, steps will be taken to rebuild the works. The payroll amounted to 510,000 weekly, and the burning of the works will seriously depress the neighborhood, as many of the men lived near the works. These shops furnished the stock steel for the Beaver Falls ax manufactory of the firm, and the latter works will be thrown idle in consequence. One hnndred and fifty men are employed in these works. Mr. H. B. Hubbard, foreman of the saw department, stated that six months' work was mined in his department Mnch diffi culty was experienced in this shop in ex tinguishing burning vats of fish oil and lard. The flames were finally smothered by shoveling sand into the vats. The fire was discovered by H. P. Hub bard, who acts &s watchman. Several un avoidable delays hampered the firemen from getting down to work immediately. Engine Ifo. 9 burst a suction, and engine 15 broke an axle at Twenty-eighth street while on its way to the fire. Captain Brophy and an efficient squad oi police officers did good work at the fire keep ing the crowds from interfering with the firemen in their work. The J. W. Arrott agency has the follow ing companies on its books: German Ameri can, ofKew York; Niagara, of New York; Guardian, of England; Sun, of England; Continental, of New York, and Hanover, of New York. In the first four companies the Hubbards have about 510,000 each. Mr. Arrott had, until a few months ago, been agent for jhe Orient, of Hartford, Conn., and Queen, of England, and it Js thought the firm have about 55,000 each in these. AN UNPRECEDENTED CASE. Harper, the Sauthslde Man Who Shot Himself Through tbe Brain Nearly Three Weeks Ago, Died Yesterday. George Harper, the man who shot himself with suicidal intent by placing a pistol to his mouth on the 18th of last month, died yesterday morning at his home on Ellsworth street, Thirty-first ward. The bullet went clear through his brain, and how he man aged to live for almost three weeks is a question which is now bothering the med-' ical Iraternity of the two cities. The case is without a parallel in this part of the country, and will be reported to the medical journals by the attending physicians. An investigation bordering on a post mortem examination was held yesterday alter his death. It was found that the bul let entered the head through the middle of the roof of the mouth. It passed vertically upward and came out of the top of the skull a little to the right of the median line of the head and between that and the left ear. It was found that the fragments of skull had been driven out and no bones lrom the mouth driven into the brain. There was great destruction of the brain tissue, but it was also found that paralysis came on grad ually. Another ueculiar feature of the case was a fracture by transmitted force upon the opposite side of the eye, destroying the socket The patient did not lose consciousness until Friday morning. TJp until that time he had been feeding himself and could take the cup of nourishment given him. He refused to say why he committed the deed, and the secret, whatever it was, died with him. The physicians who had been attend ing him on account of the peculiar features of the case, were Drs. English, Brumbaugh, McCann, Ayres, Young and Husted. Harper worked at the American Iron Works, and leaves a family of a wife and five children, who are in straightened cir cumstances. AN OLD WOMAN'S SUICIDE. Mrs. Lnyrrence, Aged 71 Tears, Cuts Her Throat With a Razor The Epidemic Reaches Troy Hill. Annie Lawrence, or Lorenz, a Bohemian, aged 71 years, living on Brabec street, Troy Hill, Allegheny, followed the example of many others during the past two weeks by ending her life by the razor route. She lives with her husband, her two daughters and son-in-law. The latter is employed in a rolling mill and rises early every morn ing. Mrs. Lawrence is also an early riser and prepares her son-in-law's breakfast. When he went down stairs yesterday morning she was not around, and calling her husband, the two men instituted a search for the missing woman. She was found in a hollow near the house with her throat cut lrom ear to ear and a razor clntched tightly in her right hand. The body was taken into the house, and Coroner McDowell was notified. He will hold an inquest this morning. AIiOTHEE STONE FIGHT. The Hoodlums Abovo Twenty-Eighth Street Had a Battle Yesterdny. There was a lively fight on the hillside above Twenty-eighth street yesterday after noon among the boys who live along Jones avenue and the boys who make the brick yards on the hill their headquarters. Stones were used at first, and as the fight grew warm pistols were drawn and several shots fired. The brickyard boys were the stronger and beat their opponents down the hill. As they ran they went toward the house of George Benjamin Keller, a colored man, on Wharton avenue. He was standing in the doorway when a stone struck him on the head, knocking him down. At the same time several of the persons engaged rushed against the house, breaking in the door and smashing several panes of glass in the windows. When Keller fell the fight stopped. The injured man was placed in bed and a physi cian called, who found that he had suffered a severe scalp wound. One of the boys en gaged in the fight had his lip split open and his face cut by a stone. DAKOTA'S BLESSINGS. A Rich Resident Says It's the Most De lightful Flace in the Country. Mr. F. C. Stokes, of Grand Forks, North Dakota, who was formerly Register of Beaver county, is in the city, visiting Dr. Rahauser, on the Southside. Speaking of the new State to a Dispatch reporter, last night, he said: Since the Territory of Dakota has been di vided into two States, the general condition of the country has very rnuch improved. Every thing is boommc up there, and we are making rapid strides. We feel now like wo are taken care of like any other part of the United States, and consequently we have become more buoyant in oar energy and enterprise. All we lack, however, is strength. There are not enough of us up there. The country has somehow or other always been in bad repute, and for no true reason whatever. We have everything a man may desire. The Govern ment gives him land free, and land on which tbe best crain in the United States can be raised. Wheat barley, rye, corn, buckwheat in fact anything will grow. FLOWERS FOE A LITTLE GRATE. The Murdered Child of Datz Burled Be neath the Bads and'Blossoms. The funeral of little George Datz, who was murdered by his father last week, took place at 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon from the Bloomfield German Catholic Church. The remains were interred in St Mary's Cemetery, only the family being in attend ance. The child was buried in the handsome casket contributed by Coroner McDowell, and was almost covered with flowers sent by friends and sympathizers of the afflicted family. A handsome floral cross, sent by Inspector McAleese and Detective Coulson, was placed over the little one's grave. Datz, the father, murderer and suicide, will be buried in the potter's field at Belle vue this morning. LACTEAL DEVELOPMENTS. Both Sides of the Olilk Trust Waiting forthe Struggle To-Day. A call upon the leaders in the milk trust scheme last evening elicited the fact that there were no new developments in the mat ter and both sides were waiting for to-day to see what the outcome of thestruggle between the two associations would be. The retail dealers said they had enough milk on hand to last them until to-day noon, when they would get a partial fresh supply. The men "in the producers' pool said that the others would get no milk at all, unless they purchased from the agent, Mr. Beed. There is likely to be a shortage to-uay and to-morrow. THE EARLY IN THE FIGHT. Samuel Storey, M. P., One of the First Home Rulers,, Visits the City. THE GUEST OP HENRI.PHIPPS, JR. The Unionists to he Wiped Out on the Next Appeal to Yoters. A SWEEPING YICT0RI BOUND TO COME Hon. Samuel Storey, a leading member of the British Parliament and a friend of Henry Phipps, Jr., arrived in the city last evening from California, where he spent the winter. Mr. Phipps met him at the depot, and escorted him to his home in Allegheny. Mr. Storey is an old friend of Mr. Carnegie, and was with the coaching party last sum mer in England.' He then met Mr. Blaine, and, before he returns to England in com pany with Messrs. Carnegie and Phipps, he will call on the President and Secretary of State at Washington. He entertained the coaching party at his home in Sunderland. Mr. Storey will leave for Washington to day. He is a tall, handsome man, easy to inter view, and seems to carry with him more than the average amount of the milk of human kindness. It is more of such men that Parnell and the Irish people need to defend them in the English House. In an an interview at the depot last night Mr. Storey said: . WHAT THE EMINENT MAN SAID. 1 am a Radical in politics; that is, I belong to the extreme wing of the Liberal party. I flat ter myself that I am one of the original five members who fought for home rule. I remem ber well in 1881 what bitter stings and slurs Sir Vernon Harcourt cast at us in the House of Commons. Even Gladstone himself, who was then. a Coercionist was very bitter when we crossed his path or opposed him. Now Gladstone has become the champion of the home rule caue, and Harcourt is a staunch supporter. 'Tis ever so; the great men acknowledge a wrong and try to right it 1 always claimed that the principle that a na tion shall not dictate how it shall be governed is radically unjust and this is why I contend for the rights of Ireland. Balfour is personally a clever man, of some ability. He carries out a policy boldly and defiantly; but Balfour is not to Do blamed. He is not respon sible for the nasty things he does. The laws he enforces are bad, and should never have been passed. We want to have them effaced from the statute books just as soon as we can. The time is not far distant when home rule for Ireland will triumph. The Government may be dissolved Dy law in 1801; at least not -later than 1892, and it may be that wo WILL FORCE THE MINISTRY to resign and restore Gladstone to power before that time. The cause is gaining ground, and we will wipe out the Unionist vote at the polls. We propose to elect Liberals in their stead. Chamberlain is hedging, and -would like1 to come back into the fold; but we don't want him. We will soonfcnock the props from under the Unionist contingent Chamberlain and a few of the leaders who are well established in their districts will be elected; but on the next appeal to the country their followers will be defeated. My district of Sunderland sends me to Parliament to uphold what is just, and my constituents have indorsed my course. Yes, I know Patrick Egan has been recog nized by President Harrison. It is doubtless to be taken as a compliment for his great work in behalf of his countrymen. Mr. E;an is an honest fearless man, and I never believed the lies that were told about him. No I don't believe Sir Julian Fauncefote, the new Minister to Washington, is to be re called in a short time. We don't need Minis ters anyhow in this age of telegraphs and tele phones. They are entirely useless. Mr. Storev was anxious to hear of the latest election news from England. He thought the climate in California the finest in the world. FAST OCEAN SAILING, The Paris Exhibition Is the Attraction In Europe This Tear A Reason Why Ocean Travel is Increasing. The prospects for steamship travel to Europe are better than they ever have been before in the ocean steamship business. One reason which accounts for this is the fact that the Paris Exposition takes place dur ing the summer, and the facilities offered by some of the steamship companies are so tempting that a large number of people who would otherwise spend their annual nolidays in this country will go to Europe this summer. Mr. J. J. McCormick, the well-known steamship agent, in speaking of the ocean travel for the coming season, said yesterday: "Yes, I believe that the number of tourists to Europe will be nearly doubled this year to what it ever has been before. The Paris Exhibition, which is the great attraction of the year, will induce many people to go to France this summer. "However, there is another, reason which will greatly encourage ocean travel, and that is the enormous improvements which have been made in the building of ships. This summer will see the fastest ships on the ocean that have ever been plying be tween any two ports on the globe. The latest accounts of the new twin screw steamer City of Paris beat anything that has ever before been achieved. She made 21 knots an hour on her trial trip from Glas gow to Liverpool. It is said that she is to make the journey from Liverpool to New York in 5 days and 12 hours, which is 13 hours and 55 minntes faster than the quick est trip of the Etruria, the great Cunard vessel. This year the trip to Europe will also be cheaper than ever before. There is one company that will undertake to carry one saloon passenger from Pittsburg to Paris and back for $129, and second class they charge only $89 for the same trip. Among the many well-known people who will leave for Europe very soon are the fol lowing named persons: Mr. and Mrs. Jonas B. McClintock, Mr. Wilson and Miss Ar buthnot, Mrs., Miss and Mr. Alexander Crawford, Mrs. Chambers, Mrs. Rogers, Miss Bissel, Mr. T. A. Gillespie, Major Joseph Sneer and William McCague. LOOKING FOR 1NGALLS. The Kansas Senator Wanted nt the Amer icas Clnb Banquet. A committee from the Americus Clnb, headed by W. H. D. ' English, was at the depot last evening looking for Senator Ingalls, who was expected to pass through the city going home. The committee intended to invite him to attend the banquet on Grant's birthday, but unfortunately the caustic Senator was not on the limited. WHAT MEXT, THOMAS? , Mr. King Performing the Duties of First Vice President of tho B. & O. Thomas M. King is now performing the duties of the First Vice President of the B. & O., while Orland Smith, the incumbent, is presumably taking a much! needed rest. A railroad man said yesterday that if the truth was really known it would be found that Mr. King is actually First Vice Presi dent and Colonel Smith has Quietly retired. He Increased the Sentence. James Cotter, of Shanghai Bow, Woods' Bun, was arrested by Officer Sheer early yesterday morning for abusing his wife. At the hearing he was sentenced 60 days to the workhouse, when he remarked that he would kill his wife when he got out. The Mayor promptly increased the sentence to 90 days. SanxSmnll's Pet Evolution. 'Sam Small delivered his address "From the Bar-room to the Pulpit," to an audience of 1,500 people in Leighton's Hall, Brad dock, yesterday afternoon. nv PITTSBTJEG- DISPATCH, THE MANAGER HERE. Mr. Locke Snys the May Festival Will be Second to Mono Ever Given In America Bound to be a. Grent Success Mr. Seymour E. Locke, of New York, who will manage the May Festival, arrived in the city yesterday from California and registered at the Anderson Hotel. Mr. Locke said he hadn't been in Pittsburg since 1885, when he had charge of the Wagner Festival. He couldn't say much about his plans for the coming musical event until he had learned what had already been done, but Mr. Locke expressed the opinion, judging from the character of the singers and musi cians selected, that the festival would be second to none ever given in America. Mr. Locke had an interview with Carl Better yesterday afternoon. He will begin at once to actively take hold of the im portant work yet to be done. "I do not care to talk in a general way about opera in America," he said. "My connection with the unfortunate American Opera Company was so unpleasant that I have no desire to refer to it The venture proved a failure, and they still owe me some money. Mrs. Thurber is aa enthusiastic woman, but she got into deep water. It is a pity that such a magnificent company could not have been held foeether. I shouldn't think Mrs. Thurber, after her last experience, would care to go into -any more such enterprises. "In Europe all the large play houses are subsidized by the Government. This ac counts for European success in Very many instances. The American Government will subsidize a great many things hefore they will adopt the European plan with refer ence to theaters. The American people are not quite ready for a display of such mag nanimity. I would like to see more inter est taken in American opera. I am doing all I can to further the good work, but I do not want to repeat my past experiences with operatic ventures in a hurry. THAT UNLUCKY NUMBER. Thirteen Drunks Disposed of-Other mis taken Unfortunates. "It is time," solemnly enunciated Jus tice Gripp, and the good old town clock didn't strike 8 as the drunks were arranged in line at Central station. "We are thirteen," they sadly said; "And we thirteen wish we were dead. This thing of boozing does not pay." But they will pony up or stay. It cost them just 54 40 each, Including big heads and small pocketbooks. James Wagner threw a screen through a window because the bartender wouldn't give him a drink. Without attempting to make .light of a painful subject, Wagner tried to screen himself. Chestnuts. Messrs. Gray and Evans charged John Jones with holding them up. The Court didn't see how a little weak fellow could hold up two big men very long, and John was discharged and the other gentlemen contributed to the good cause. Michael Sanon came from Philadelphia, and was found following another man around presumably to ask him what he thought of the Cabinet Mr. Sanon will antagonize the K. of L. while making bar rels for Mr. Warner. " Johannes Smythe was smoking in a theater. John Smith will be made to smoke at the workhouse. ' W. Conn is awfully absent-minded. While trying on several hats in a down town store he forgot himself and put his old hat in the box, and the new hat on his head. Six dollars and forty cents would buy several hats of tbe sort Willie wears. Mr. Gorman wanted to kill a German. The German didn't want to be killed just then. It costs 56 46 to interfere) with a German's rights on American soil, no matter what it might not cost to interfere with American rights on German soil. John Velver was selling suspenders and collar buttons in front of a notion store. He was shifted over to a hardware store, but John knew his business and wandered back. Some day he may wander back again. George Noar Baid he didn't think much of Pittsburg police, and they could go to Chicago. His opinion cost him 56 40. A Mr. Harmer thought theatrical prices were too high, and he " had a great crowd with him. He wanted to get in for nothing, and this was rather usurping a policeman's rights. Like a great many other patrons, he kicked at the theater door, but almost broke it in. He will have until 11 to-day in which to pay 56 40. "Susannah don't you cry," murmured Bob; and Susie Jones brightened up at once. She had sworn awful swears at three men on the street, but she had a reason to Discharged. Then the usual "taxpayer and citizen, and I'll have your buttons taken offofficer" man bobbed up. He was taxed 56 40 as a starter. That officer is still on the beat, and the beat is dead onto that officer. ANDREWS AS A LEADEE. Wherry Describes Ilim Brooks Law In Danger of Being Modified. Bepresentative Wherry, the leading Dem ocrat in the House, returned to Harrisbure from Mansfield last evening; where he spent Sunday with his brother. Though a Demo crat, he is one of the best posted men on the State politics of both parties in Pennsyl vania. In a chat at the depot last evening, he said: What is known as the Quay gang achieved a great victory last Friday. They not only voted down the traction bill, but they jumped on the unfortunate opposition with both feet. The whole thing was done for the effect it would have at Washington. As to Chairman Andrews, Imust say that he is an admirable leader in some respects. He has no intellectual force, but he is a good watch dog. He has all the instincts of a hound, using that word in its better sense. He is what the English call a whip, and just the kind of a man Quay wants. He deals with members person ally. His plan is to threaten a man. Andrews has sent men to tell me that he would break' my neck if I didn't let upon my opposition to bills; but threats will not scare me. Taking Cooper back into the fold looks to me like a shrewd move to help Delamater to the Governorship. Quay has promised Cooper the Collectorship of the Port of Philadelphia and ho will stay out of the Gubernatorial fight for that pi am. I haven't decided how 1 will voto on the Pro hibition question. There is creat danger that bills repealing some of the restrictive features of the Brooks law will be passed. If this is done, then I will certainly vote for prohibi tion. Stricken With Paralysis. William Hughes, the druggist at- 290 Beaver avenue, Allegheny, was stricken with paralysis late Saturday night, while standing in his store. He was carried to his residence above the store, where he was lying in a critical condition yesterday. Mr. 'Hughes has been engaged in business for 20 years, and is very well known. Poisoned on Candy. Three little school girls of West Bfad dock, named Biston, Little and Yarlet, were poisoned by eating candy Saturday. Their condition is thought to be sesfous.

Impressive Services at the Funeral of Peter Walter, Jr. AN ADDRESS BI EET. J. G. G0ETTMAX. Not within the -recent history of St Peter's Pro-Cathedral in Allegheny has there been such' a large crowd bf people within its four walls as that which gathered yesterday. afternoon to attend the funeral services of the James D. Gallery, late Presi dent of the Pittsburg and Western railroad ' and the owner of the large tanneries in the upper portion of Allegheny. It was not a crowd of sight-seeing women such as usually gather at churches upon occasions of this kind, but it was composed of the merchants, manufacturers and solid business men of the two cities. They did not come upon an errand of curiosity, but gathered at the bier of the deceased asso ciate to pay their last respects to tbe dead, and drop a tear in silent communion with the grief-of the living. Bailroad' officials, bank directors, iron manufacturers and retired merchants who counted their wealth with six and seven figures each were there in great numbers. They represented all religious creeds and denominations, and their faces betoken the pangs they felt on the departure of the one who had passed away. While the wealthy classes were repre sented by scores of people, the poor and ig norant, whose friend and counselor Mr. Callery had been, were also gathered in great numbers. They occupied all the seats' in the church, alongside their rich neigh bors, with whom they were PLACED ON AN EQUAL PLANE by the subtle feeling one posseses in the presence of death. They stood up in all the aisles, crowded the galleries and vestibules and the line extended out into the street. After the remains and mourners had been admitted.it was impossible to get in or out of the vast edifice. The funeral took place from the late resi dence of the deceased, on Stanton avenue, East End. It was at first intended to have the services in the Sacred Heart Church, but owing to Mr. Callery's connection with the pro-Cathedral it was decided to hold them there. There were no services at the house: The 'pall-bearers were all business associates of Mr. Callery and were: H. W. Oliver, Jr., JohnW. Chalfant, A. JGroetz inger, C. C. Hax, A. J. Darrah, William J. Burns, Thomas Graff, of this city, and H. A. Thomas, Vice President of the Pittsburg and Western road, at New York. The long line of carriages, numbering over 100, followed the hearse to the church in Allegheny, where Funeral Director William Fajrman assisted Thomas. B. Moreland, of the.East End, in conducting the party. The 'remains, which were en cased in a costly ebony casket, were carried to the rail of the altar, and were followed by the family of the deceased. Mrs. Cal lery was supported upon the arm of her eldest son, J. Dawson. rkev. Coadjutor Bishop Phelan conducted the services. They were the usual solemn Catholic ceremonies of the dead. The Bishop was assisted by Fathers Murphy, President of the Holv Ghost College; Mc Evoy, of St. Peters; 'Canevin, of St. Paul's Orphan Asylum, and McNamara, of Charleston, S. C. Before sprinkling the holy water over the casket, Bishop Phelan delivered a touching eulogy upon the life of the deceased. The full choir of the church, assisted by Miss Grace Miller and William Loeffler, sang under the leadership of the director, Armor Savage. At the conclusion of the services they rendered "Inflammatus," by Bossini, in a touching manner. 'Miss Stella Callaghan was the soprano'and Mr. Mathew Collins tenor. Miss Agnes Carter was the organist. THE BISHOP'S EULOGY. In his sermon, Bishop Phelan's voice be came so weak (caused by grief over the death of Mr. Callery) that it sometimes could not be heard a dozen feet away. He began his discourse by saying that it was natural that he should say something in eulogy of the deceased, but doubted whether he was the proper person to do so. He said: I can s-arcely trust myself to speak of the one whose body now lies before me. In condoling with the family I can say that I, too, have met with the loss of a friend. I will not for a mo ment compare my loss with that of those who have lost a husband and a father. If an honest man is the noblest work of God, which no one can deny, a true fr endfor years, is the noblest gift of God. As the Lord had given rae this friend he has also taken him away. "For the Lord givetu, and the Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord." When I came to this city first 1 was a stranger-j almost witnout an acquaintance, i looked around for a long time for advisors and for men whom 1 could trust I immediately saw in Mr. Callery a man who I knewl could trust with anything. I am not a pessimist, but iriends of this kind are not so numerous that they can be spared. My trust in him was so Ereat that had he done one wrong act of any ind my faith in human nature would be for ever broken. Our affection was not sentimental, but was founded on esteem. I did not love him as a member of my congregation, but as an honest honorable, upright man. There were no dark corners in his mind tbatauyone could not see. He was open, frank and honest in his dealings with all men. A MAN OF INTEGRITY. He was so scrupulously honest that when he was in doubt about some business matter he would come to me and ask my advice in reeard to it. Upon one occasion I distinctly remem ber he said that if a certain transaction was not right he would let his family go to bed without their suppers before he would do it What other men in business thought was sharp business methods he would consider a Sc, and refrain from them. His family relations were so delicate that I am afraid I should not do justice to touch upon them. His real, manly Christian affection for the ones of his family brought more happiness than this reasonable so-called affection. He never bad any trouble, and God has blessed him for his noble nature. These marks of respect that we pay to the body under tbe direction and approval of the church arc paid because the body has been the temple of the Holv Ghost It was animated by an immortal soul which was made in the image and likeness of God and Redeemer of the blood of Jesus Christ. It is, therefore, of Infinite value. Someday it will rise again and be spiritualized for all eternity to share in God's glory forever. To you who are here let his life be an exam ple which ho has given jou. He has left to the members of his family tbe inheritance of a good name and an unspotted reputation. He was a true Catholic, broad-minded and liberal in his views, and because persons of Protestant belief held an honest difference of opinion against his belief, his nature was so magnani mous that he did not allow this to interfere in extending the hand of true friendship. He thought everybody was what he had always been honest in all things. PETER WALTER'S FDNERAL. OnoVf Allegheny's Most Prominent Citizens and Business Men Burled Yesterday Services at tho Trinity Church. The funeral of Peter Walter, Jr., took place yesterday, the services being held in the Trinity Lutheran Church, on Stockton avenue, Allegheny. The members of both branches of Councils and city officials as sembled at City Hall about 2 o'clock and marched in a body to the church, where they were assigned seats.' Bepresentatives of the different secret orders of which Mr. Walter "was a member came in later. About 3 o'clock the body was brought into the church and placed in front of tho pulpit, where the floral tributes sent by the different secret orders, friends and Councils had been previously arranged by Superin tendent of Parks Hamilton. The friends of MONDAY, APFJL SpC "ifi 1889. -?P I the family accompanied the remains and uuuujucu Bcaia ill toe miume aisic. xii"; seat was taken and the chureh was crowded to the door. Several hnndred people were unable to gain admittance and remained outside until the close of the services. The excellent double quartet choir sang "Bock of Ages," when the pastor, Bev. J. G. Goettman, conducted the funeral ser vices of the church. The choir sang "Gathering Home." and Bev. Dr. Groett man delivered the following address: A short time ago we were called to bury a sister and to-day the body of her brother lies here waitine to be carried arav. Death is in. -evltable, and the question is often asked, "Does death end alir" No one that has ever Deen called home by deatn has ever spoken to us or answered that question. We venture to hone that beyond death there is life. s man advances in knowledge, this hope is cherished and the foundation is made more sure and solid. It is an assured facttba; matter cannot be destroyed. Let a drop of water fall on a piece of pacer and it disappears, but it is not destroyed. It may pass out of tho window in the form of vapor and will exist It may cotae back in a hundred different forms. The soul is infinitely ereater than matter, and you cannot destroy it Nature gives us hope. These flowers sprang from ap parent death. Your friend is not dead at all. His lips are cold and bis eyes are closed and you may think he is dead, but the Lord says 'I am the resur rection and tbe life.' 1 will say little about de ceased's life in civic affairs. No man lives who has not enemies, but I want to say that I have found men and women who abuse persons and who are not nearly as good as those they abuse. Some persons who throw stones are not as good as the persons at whom they throw the stones. I want to speak of our brother as a friend. Not only as a pastor, but as a friend. He had a good, pious mother, and loved her as a dutiful son ought to. When I needed help for charitable or benevolent ob jects I went to our deceased brother. Although I went often, be never refused. He never held his liana in his pocket and I have received hundreds of dollars from bim. He always gave willingly, but wan ted to know to what use tbe money was to be put Gqd won't forget him. Let me speak of bim for a moment as a hus band and a father. He loved the compaionship of his-wife, and his children were dear to him. He gave them his time and attention, and there was no place so dear to him as his home. His memory with all is holy and dear to you, and he has left a name that you need not be ashamed of. Within a few hours after his death another active business man was stricken down. Is there not a lesson here 7 Is not God saying to you, "Man, man, stop 1 take an account of your, stock for the eternal world I" You can attend to business, but always "Trust in God and do the right" At the close of the address the choir sang "Blessed are the Dead that Die in the Lord." The casket was removed to the front of the church and the large audience viewed the remains as they passed out The pall bearers were Chairmen Lindsay and Hunter, of Allegheny Councils; James A. Steele and James T. Mcintosh, of Asca lon Commandery No. 159, K. T.; H. C. Mendle and Prof. T. S. Lackey, of Park Lodge, I. O. O. F.; Charles N. Hetzel and Peter Moul, of Hope Council No. 118, Jr. O. T7. A M. All of the orders of which Mr. Walter was a member sent-floral tributes, and there were several fine pieces from friends in cluding Dr. H. A. Hardtmeyer, Samuel C. Grier, Barton Grubbs, John C. Hetzel and John B. Murphy. The most beautiful design was one sent by Allegheny Councils. It was a large square base of very fine flowers. The ends alternate with Boman hyacinth and lily of the valley. The whole piece was made up with tea and hybrid perpetual roses, sur rounded by a harp with a broken string. It was unique and out of the conventional style of floral offerings. On streamers of white silk ribbons were the words "Faithful Friend." The body was interred in Allegheny Cemetery. BLAZES NEAR DIXM0NT. The Large New Barn Near the Insane Asy lum Destroyed. The large new barn on the Dixmont In sane Asylum grounds was completely de stroyed by fire last evening, and fcr a time it was believed the other outbuildings would ignite and cause a panic among the inmates. Although the barn is about a quarter of a mile from the institution the building would have been in danger had the other frame structures caught fire. The inmates were locked in their rooms and not permitted to see the fire and a mes sage was sent to Chief Crow, of the Alle gheny fire department, asking for assistance. A flat car and locomotive were soon ob tained and the Chief was prepared to ship an engine and hose down when he received word that his services were not required. The bam that burned had just been filled with hay during the week. When the fire was discovered abont 7 o'clock, the horses and agricultural implements were removed, but the flames had gained such head nay that it was found impossible to extinguish the blaze. The apparatus was in good order, and the employes devoted their efforts to preventing the flames from spreading to the adjoining buildings. A bucket brigade was formed and operated by a number of the milder inmates of the asylum, who did very effective work. The Superintendent estimates the loss at about S3, 000. The oiigin of the fire is not known. FOB parlor, bedroom, dining or kitchen furniture call on Dain & Daschbach, 111 Smithfield street.

The New Topic Lectured Upon at a Liberal League Sleeting. The Liberal League held its regular weekly meeting at Maltby Hall last night. Mr. F. C. Knight delivered an address on "Justice and Taxation," his argument being based upon the Henry George single tax land theory. He maintained that the con flict of modern times was between monopoly on the one hand and capital and labor on the other. Capital and labor were not opposed to each other, but capital was only another form of labor, was the fruit of labor. The ownership of land was the result of labor, and the speaker denied the right to tax that labor without the consent of the individual. He argued that the individual, the minority in a community, had rights which the ma jority had a right to respect Opening on Mondav. Mr. Schoenthal, formerly and for many years with Mr. M.
