2 AFRESH M0YE-1ADE. The Milk Dealers Meet Some of the Shippers, and they Confer TO FIX A SATISFACTORY PRICE. An Entirelj Kew Organization of the Pro ducers is Proposed. THE WAR IS MORE COMPLICATED HOW The lacteal war is getting more con pli cated than ever. Yesterday afternoon the members of the Milt Dealers' Protective Union met in Imperial Hall and fixed a price for milk, which they propose to pay all shippers who supply them. They had invited the producers to be present, and a large number of them ap peared. Most of them, however, do not be long to the anion, although it was con tended that the anion shippers would be glad to leave Mr. Beed and ship again to the dealers, if they can make sure of get ting the same price all along. The shippers claim that it has been the inconsistency bi the dealers in refusing to pay the fanner a fixed price that has caused dissatisfaction. President Hennes called upon every ship per present, and asked each to give his views on the question, and they all made a few remarks, which, summed up, amounted to this: "The only way to make our business .sat isfactory is for the tanner and dealer to go hand in hand and work for their mutual protection. It is, therefore, necessary to hare as fix a price for each gallon of milk, in order that the dealer may know what he has to pay, and the shipper may know what he has to expect." AT ELEVEN AND EIGHTEEN. Vice President Hemingray then .moved that the dealers pay 11 cents a gallon for the six months from April 1 until October 1, and 18 cents a gallon for the other six months in the year. Somebody objected to that, because Mr. Beedpays 12 cents a gallon; but Mr. Hem ingray explained to the shippers that Mr. Beed pays them for the milk as much as he can, and that he does not pay 10 cents to the tanners. At this juncture one farmer said that he would sooner take ll cents from his dealers than IS from Mr. Beed. The shippers thereupon all expressed their satisfaction with the arrangement, and the price of 11 cents for summer and 18 cents for winter will so into effect at once. Mr. "Walker then moved thatthe shippers organize a anion which is willing to act in harmony and co-operate with the dealers. This was agreed to, and the dealers passed the following resolution: Whsbeas, All the snippers present here to day Have agreed to ship ns milk at 11 cents per gallon from April 1 to October 1, and for 18 cents per gallon from October 1 until April 1. therefore be it Resolved, That we inform all the milk pro ducers who ship to Pittsbure of this, oar ac tion, and invite them to meet us here in a Joint meeting on next Fridav week, April 26, and sign a contract to that effect. We also invite all shippers to form an association of their own, which may be a joint onion with the Milk Dealers' Protective Union, organized for the purpose of benefiting and protecting the mu tual interests of the milk shippers and the milk dealers. THE FOBMAL OLIVE BBAXCH. Then another resolution was paised, as follows: Resolved, That the Executive Committee of the present Producers' Union be invited to meet the dealers also on April 26 in Imperial Hall: but, in case they refuse, then each ship per is to constitute himself a committee of one and come to tbe meeting anyhow. These .resolutions were received with ac clamation, and throughout the meeting there was harmony between the shippers and dealers. AH seemed to be anxious to hare the trouble amicably settled, and, from what could be learned from either party at the close, they are willing to settle it. "When one of the dealers spoke to a re porter about the matter, after the meeting, lie said: "This wiU'Bettle Mr. Beed. "When the shipper know that we are in earnest and mean to do the right thing by them they will come back to ns as quick as lightning." Mr. Beed, however, stated at his office: "These dealers won't accomplish any thing at all with their meeting. To-morrow I am going to sell the milk to the grocers and retailers, and give them the benefit of the dealers' profit. People look for the almightv dollar all the time, and you bet they will sooner buy from me than . 'get milk at higher rates of the dealers." PATTISON TO PENNSI. The Er-Governor Was Very Anxious About the Sooth Penn He Intimates That Be ' Witt Vote Against Prohibition. Ex-Governpr Pattison passed through the city last evening bound for Chicago. He is very much interested in; the war "Mr. Car negie is waging on the Pennsylvania Bail road. He said: "'When Lwas Governor I was anxious to see the South Penn built. I did . all I could to promote its construction, but Mr. Carnegie and a few others thought there were unsurmouutable difficulties in the way, and. the project was abandoned. What the people of the State seed is a com peting railroad. This is Philadelphia's one thing lacking. Another railroad would in crease the material wealth and commerce of the city amazingly. "It is true the people must pay tribute to the Pennsylvania road for the advantage of the Western States. The fanners and ship pers in the interior of the State suffer -the most. It costs them as much to send their cattle and grain to Philadelphia or Pitts burg as it does the Dakota farmer to ship his products to the Eastern markets. The result is that the farming interests are dry ing up simply to support an over-exacting railroad. "No,I havn't made up my mind ho w I will tote on prohibition. I believe in the Dem ocratic doctrine ot personal rights. I aim after the largest individualism, and I do ,not approve of hedging a man around with too many laws. Let each man govern him self."

BICK WITH DIPHTHEEIA, Children Pound Begging Money in Dis reputable Booses. Inspector McAleese last night was in formed that a little girl and boy were going around among the disreputable houses in the lower part of the city soliciting money to buy medicine for their little brother, who was dying with diphtheria. The children were found, and the little girl had a letter addressed to any who might read it, stating that the writer was poor. Her little boy was sick with diphtheria and needed medi cine, and asking for contributions. It was signed by Mrs. Huey. The children said they lived in the Yel low Bow. An officer found things were much worse even than the children had rep resented them. Mrs. Huey is a widow and has seven children, the eldest being the girl who was soliciting, who was only 13. Mrs. Huey makes a living by washing, but her boy was taken down with diphtheria and she was compelled to appeal to the pub lie for assistance. Some one. knowing the generosity Of the people living in certain booses, instructed the children to go among them. When he heard the story, the In spector gave the children $1 and sent them home.

OFFICIALS CONDEMNED District Assembly S, of the K. of L., Holds a Quarterly Meeting. THE STRIKE AT CHESS' HON W0EKS The rate for mining-in the railroad dis trict of Western Pennsylvania has been set tled, but there will likely be a number of small strikes during th year owing to the trouble between the National Progressive Union and the Knights of Xabor. The lat ter organization has finally agreed to accept the rates proposed, but say that had it not been for the interference on the part of the. N. P. U., that a better rate could have been secured. The N. P. U. members and offi cers now say that they will not accept the terms offered and strikes will be the result at every mine where they haye control. The officials of the B of L. say that if the miners had made a stand that they could easily have secured a straight 74-centrate for the entire year, beginning May 1. In proof of this statement they claim that ex Congressman W. L. Scott, of Erie, whose mines are located at Scott Haven, pn the Baltimore and Ohio Ballroad, made A COKTBACT LAST WEEK for 1,000,000 tons of coal based on a 74-cent rate. As he will only be compelled to pay 71& centa per ton for mining he will make I 25,000 more than he expected on the contract, so. Master Workman. Bea, of N. T. A. iM, K. of L., claims. Other operators, it is said, have taken con tracts based on a 74-cent rate for mining, and if the diggers had made a stand for this price 1t would undoubtedly have been con ceded. The operators of course were will ing to sign an agreement to jay alow rate if possible to secure the men. National Secretary Watchorn in speak-, ing of the wage question last evening said! "The Ohio miners and operators are satis fied with the rate fixed, .and as there is likely to be trouble among the N. P. U. miners in Western Pennsylvania, a great deal ot the trade that would have come here will go to the Hocking Valley. We pro pose to issue a manifesto in the near future EXPLAINItf O THE 8IHTATI01T to the miners, whether they are members of our association or not, and tell them how the rate was fixed. 1 am friendly to the K. P. U. members, and, in fact, all organized labor, whether thev are members of our order or not, but I do not approve of one man influencing a large number to accept lower wages' than they could receive by making a brief fight. The Knight of Labor miners are in the majority here and all will have work, while the K. P. U. men, if they insist on an advance, will remain idle." President John MoBride left last night for Ohio, and before quitting the city an nounced that he also intended to issue a cir cular, and when tbe circulars from the heads of the two rival miners' organizations are published the public will probably be in a better position to understand which side is right ON THE INCREASE.

The convention adjourned at 3 o'clock in order to give the committees time to con sider the business thev had before them and at the close of the Session Master Workman Boss said: "Notwithstanding the report' tnat we nave oniy i.cxtu memoers in u.

A TIN PLATE" PLANT, President Potter, of Chicago, Say's One May be Established. President O. W. Potter, of the North Chicago Boiling Mill, wlro is in the city, says that he expects to see tin plate manu factured In this country as a direct result of the consolidation of the Chicago steel com panies. He says they are considering the erection of a special plant to turn out the plate. He state! the consumption in this country is enormous, and as there' is nobody mak ing tbe plate, tbe business should be profit able. He thinks, the high quality of Lake Superior ore would produce a steel suitable for the production of sheets -to be coated with tin. v A Strike at tbe Allkanna Mill. The new Stcubenville Iron and Steel Works at Allkanna, which started last week, are already stopped by a strike. An Amalgamated Association lodge was organ ized and chartered by some of the men, and the scale was .signed, but with a reservation which the men claimed Would work to their disadvantage. There was also some diffi culty as between the working of home and foreign puddlers. The firm are shipping their raw material back to McKeesport. The Troable at -Daaaesne. A meeting of the 'strikers at the Duquesne Steel Works was held yesterday, at which it was decided not;to accede to the terms of the operators unless John Edwards is rein stated.

Said to be AlPKlgbtVo Par aa Xaaaraae Goe Still Kicking Here. According to a telegram from Newark, O., last .evening, the talk of a threatened' stnte on tne Baltimore and Ulna system, should an attempt' be made to compel the employes to accept the new plan of in surance, is without any fpundation'ia fact, so far as the trans-Ohio ''divisions are con cerned. In Newark alone, which is the general headquarters on that side of the Ohio river, the company employs about 1,000 men. Al' most 600 of these are employed in the great shops at Newark. In a canvass among the men employed in the shops there are but few who object to the plan or its expense. Oi all the men employed at Newark, every one has taken the Insurance except one, and be was not discharged. AH of these signed the paper of their own accord. Of the men in the transportation depart ment at Newark, there are some who, oppose, the scheme, but, as they continue at work, they will probably take it Mr. W. H. Harrison, Superintendent of Motive Power, who had just returned froni a trip along the line said in Newark yester day that there was no likelihood of trouble. He explained the feature of the insurance by saying, as the old association charter bad been annulled, that all thatfwas asked was a transfer to the Baltimore and Ohio Bailroad Company. In case of suit the company would be responsible, whereas the other as sociation was not. He said that in Newark the employes were all furnishing themselves homes, and by this plan, if One was sick, he was paid benefits, and if death ensued, accidental or natural, the company paid the amount on the home, equivalent to the amount of insurance on the employe, and the deed was transferred to the widow or dependent ones. -It was the easiest and cheapest way of securing a home. He placed the difficulty on the. Chicago division to the continual agitation of what he terms "insurance sharks," and claimed the kickers belonged to the class that never saved a cent for themselves or any one else. The men on the Pittsburg division still object to the new relief feature; but they do not anticipate any trouble. Occasionally an employe is found who indorses the plan but they are few and far between. ' STRIKE AT CHESS' MILL. CnlonMen In the Boiling Department Go Ont to the Number of 150 Unprece dented Stagnation of the Kail Trade. There is a strike at Chess, Cook & Co's mill on the Southside, which' has been sanctioned by the Amalgamated Associa tion. One of the boss rollers is a member of the Knights of Labor, and was asked to join the Amalgamated Association but de clined. The firm was asked to discharge the man, but refused. The men, numbering about ISO, immedi ately went out on a strike and the mill is closed. This strike is a reminder of the exceed ingly dull situation in the nail business, which constitutes another and quite im portant branch of the Chess, Cook & Co con cern. Nail manufacturing is at present the dullest division of tbe iron and steel busi ness. This is usually the opening of tbe spring trade; but now it is at a perfect standstill, and duller than ever. Not a single nail machine' is In opera tion, and it has been four weeks since the factory of 63 machines in the American Mill of Jones & Laughhn's was shut down. This firm, though not having the largest factory, turned out more nails in the last two years than any of the other nail firms in the city. Their daily output has been about 400 kegs, and during the time their factory was in operation this year they turned ont a little over 16,000 kegs. The factory of 100 machines of Chess, Oook& Co. is the leading factory in Pitts burg; but in the last.three months not even half tbe machines averaged half time, and it is now over three weeks since the mill shut. down, during which time not more than 10,000 kegs of nails were made in it. making the whole lot made this year not more than 25,000 kegs, whioh is not even enough to supply the home trade. Begin ning with the 1st of April, the home con sumption of nails runs upward of 12,000 kegs a month. A PLEASANT TRIP. The Boiler Manufacturers Inspect Pittsburg Iron and Steel Mills. The convention of boiler manufacturers of the country closed yesterday with & very pleasant tour of the city anda visit to the leading iron and steel mills of this section. They left the Hotel Anderson about 9:30 o'clock in carriages and inspected the works of Park Bros. & Co. and Shoenberger & Co. About 11 o'clock the party boarded the steamer Mayflower' and went to Mc Keesport, where they saw how the National Tube Works Company make pipe. The boat then proceeded to Homestead, and the visitors were shown through the extensive steel plant of Carnegie, Phipps & Co, A magnificent lunch was served on the boat, and the party returned to the city about 7 o'clock last evening. An informal meeting was held on the steamer, at which it was decided to adjourn until October 16, when the next convention will be held, and manufacturers of iron and steel for boilers will be requested to brand' all plates with the initials ol the associa tion, A. B. M. A. Committees were then appointed on manholes, riveting and calk ing, bracing and slaying, safety valves, boiler materials and slot valves and gauges. These "committees were instructed to report at the next meeting. The excursion was in charge of Captain Lew Clark.and was the first trip the boat has made this season. AGITATING A. UNIFORM S0ALE. Peter Wise Working Among the Cokers With a Bran Band. Peter Wise, the K. of L. missionary in the coke regions, is hard at work with a brass band holding meetings with the osten sible purpose of agitating the uniform scale movement. Yesterday being a layoffiay he drew a large delegation from the works at Lietb, Brow'hfield, Kyle and OUphant Works to Hutchinson station, where he ad dressed them. It is thought in some localities that Wise is more intent in getting bis labor organ ization strong enough to control the Union town end of the region, the majority of the works not recognizing the K. of L. commit tees, than in the interest of the scale. Mr. Wise in aa interview yesterday said that a practical reduction in wages had been effected at the most of the works by the operators requiring the miners to heap their wagons, and instead of 85 cents per 100 bush els, they are practically paylnjr not more than 65 cents. The Roughen' and Catchers' Meeting. ' The statement published in the papers the other day to the effect that the roughen' and catchers' meeting on the Southside last Sunday was a failure is emphatically de hied. There were 95 representatives present, including men from Cleveland, Wheeling, jEtna. Bridgeport, Sharon and other places.

The success of the project is as sured, as it- has been subsidized by the British Government to the exteatof $170, .000 annually for 20. years. Although the Dominion is thus proving lis anxiety to farther the work, the benefit accruing to il population from' the railway is but small when compared to the benefit which will be derived by the United States in its fishing industries of Maine. The railway is 17 miles in length, and the con' tractors agree to have it finished about Au gust, 1890, X.IKB. THE TEHtTAKTEPEO. Ii is being built on the same principle al the proposed Tehnantepec Ship Bailway, and promises to be a great success. The en gineers and builders are Sir Benjamin Baker and Sir John Towler, the latter of the two probably being the most prominent English engineer of the day. having built the great bridge across the Firth of Forth in Scotland. Speaking in regard' to the Tehuantepee en terprise, Colonel Andrews said: "That the Mexican Government Is gTeatly interested in the work, is manifested by the fact that about a month "ago it applied for space in the Paris Exposition in order to place on view a model oi the entire work. Having received the grant a short time ago, it is preparing to ship a complete model, which will no doubt assist the scheme extensively. QUITE A COKXBAST. ''Speaking of the latter in connection with the Canadian ship-railway, it is peculiar ta notice that, while our Northern neighbors are willing to saerifioe a large sum annu ally for the benefit of a thing from which they will never receive the greatest benefit, oar Government does not guarantee a single cent By subsidizing the company our suc cess would, of course, be assured." Colonel Andrews also referred to the oft repeated'arguments as to the feasibility of the different schemes for inter-oceanic con nection, dwelling particularly on the im proved commercial conditions which would result if any one of the proposed schemes were materialized. TO DIVIDE TBE BOODLE. A Colored Man Wanted to Give Soger O'Marn Half His Winning. A colored man walked into Inspector Mc Aleese's office yesterday and was arrested. After he had gone, Assistant Superintendent O'Mara said the colored man, whose name is Paul Coleman, has been impersonating a detective in Jeannette for several days. His object was explained by O'Mara when be said that Coleman was the best billiard player in the State, and One of the sharpest card crooks in the country. He victimized several parties at Jeannette. ' Coleman was seen at the Central station last night and said: "Xwent to Jeannette and wanted to' get into -aigame that was go ing on. TKey wouldn't 'lif me In becausa I was a coon. Then I toldtnem I was a de tective and had been sent up there by O'Mara to look out for them and I showed them a pair of handcuffs. They let me play then, and I won $29. I left the next day and I went to Blairsville, and played the same racket for a couple of days. I won altogether about $79 above my expenses. Then I thought I wonld come home, and was just going up to give Mr. O'Mara $40 for the consideration of the use of his name. I think that would be square, to give him half, as I'm a mighty square man. He wouldn't listen to me when I offered it to him, I guess he mast have been mad about something else when I went in, for he got awful angry as soon as I spoke to him." HE LEARNED A LESSON, An Economy' Parmer Trimmed Up by a Shrewd Confidence Man. A shrewd confidence man who, la doing business on a small scale has been reaping a rich harvest in Allegheny during the past week. Yesterday be met an old Economy farmer at the Ft. Wayne depot and at once proceeded to cultivate his acquaintance. He asked the man if his name was not "Michael Hope, of Economy," and on being informed that he was addressing that gen tleman, at once convinced him that they had met before. He then took him over to the Bed Lion Hotel, and induced him to cash a check for $10. The obliging farmer advanced the money and agreed to wait until the stranger returned. He got tired waiting, however, aud proceeded to Allegheny, where he showed the cheek to the Allegheny police authori ties. It was pronounced "no good," and the man went home, much wiser than when he came. Pine Lot of Musical Goods, H.

Goes 1 VOveraaebankraent at Foil Speed MlraeatoBi'Eicape Of 48 Patsmgerar Forty people -bad a thrilling .-experience on the Pittsburg and Lake Erie Bailroad" .last night They were, passengers, on. tbe through express, which should have arrived in JiiU clty at 9 Vcloek, city time. Ther&aiu is known as "No. 18.". ii was half an hour behind time, and was thunder ing along at the rate of 50 milts aa hour to make thirfup. r Just at S o'clock the express wa within half a mile of' Coraopolis, or 11 miles 'from Pittsburg, when, the flying locomotive jumped the track.) Its speed was so great that tbe ponderons" wheels, plojred up the earth, tore up rails and splintered cross tiea a distance, of fully 30 feet, and then fell over an embankment It rolled around m such a manner as to finally rest completely upside down. The engine, cab and tender were totally wrecked. Thi baggage car followed the engine and was also smashed up. Its rains toot fire but the flames were quickly extinguished. The windows.seats and stoves in the passen ger coaches were broken to piecesjbut on ac cottnt.of the' r arm weather there bad been no fire n the stoves, thus saving a possible holocaust The sleeping, car was thrown clear across the track and partially over turned. The.flreasan.was severely braised owing to the' tumbling about he got in the cab. John B. Dick, of Providence, B. L, was cut across the bead. Seven or eight other passengers were more or less scratched and bruised. That among 40 passengers not a serious casualty occurred, is considered miraculous. The women were terribly frightened' by the shock and subsequent confusion, bat Conductor ft L. Reynolds did all la bis power to restore confidence and make his charges comfortable. A relief train was summoned by telegraph from the Southside. It reached the scene of the accident in 40 minutes, and after the main track and Switch had been rebuilt brought all. the passengers to town. They arrived Hera shortly before midnight A BIT OF GERMAN CHEEK. A Single Teatealo Idea of America's Gratul tons Expense Aecoast.
