?-f jKr s!V- i 11 eiiBKitpeooF Is Dealt to Judge White's Traducers in Public Halls. SEWIOKLEY'S INDIGNATION Pours Forth in Remarks of Ridicule and in long Resolutions. JUDGE'S THREATENING LETTERS Come From a Few, While Many in Mass Meetings Praise Him. EET.DE. ALLISON THE CHIEF SPEAKER Nearly 300 people gathered in the Opera House at Sewickley last night to express their opinion of Hon. George Shiras' at tempt to have Judge "White investigated. They included business and pro fessional men of Pittsburg who live in the beautiful village; the townsfolk who arc neighbors of Judge White; countrymen from farms miles around Sewickley, and more than a dozen of ladies. The character of the audience was itself a compliment to the Judge. The meeting ras called to order at 8:15. o'clock. John "Way, Jr., was chosen Chair man and P. D. Nichols Secretary. The vice Presidents included Br. R. J. McCready, Will lam Miller. J. McElwalne, S. HcCleary. Will iam Parker, Rev. W. O. Campbell. Rev. James Allison, IX C. Herbst, A. J. Watson, Captain George W. Cochran, R. J. Fetwoll, W. P. Murray, William and F. Shannon. POOR, BUT HONEST. Messrs. W. R. Wallace, Thomas Patterson and John Dickson were appointeda Committee on Resolutions. They retired, and while the assembly awaited a report of their delibera tion;. Captain Georjre W. Cochrane, formerly of the Pittsburg Petroleum Exchange, was called upon for a speech. The Captain paid an earnest tribnte to the integrity of His Honor Judge A'hite founded upon years of business dealing be had had with him. He pronounced him one of the purest jurists on the bench, and said be could not reconcile the intimations of judicial corruption with the fact that the Jndge is still a poor man. If he had sola li censes he couldn't help beinc a millionaire now. He severely denounced the attempt to impeach him. as an insult to law-loring people and a menace to American institutions. The committee soon- returned to the room anil submitted the following resolutions as its report: ' Whereas, The reputation of Hon. J. W. F. White, one of the Judges of the Court of Com mon Pleas of this county, has been most out rageously attacked by meant of a resolution at tempted to be offered by a member of the State Legislature and given to the public press; and Whereas. The said resolution recites that the various scandalous matters stated therein are "alleged and currently believed by a large pro portion of the citizens' of this county; cow be It THEIE SOLEMN PROTEST. Hesolred, Thatwc. the citizens oftlie Scwickley Valley and nclghnors of Judge White, In meeting assembled, without regard to political party or sentiment as to existing license laworthepcndlng amendment, do express our Intense Indignation at the charge, and declare our confidence In Judge White, both as to his personal and official in tegrity. Kesolved, That we are or the opinion that the ' attack is made on Jo dee White on account or his fearless and conscientious discharge or his duties in the late License Court, and are not otherwise founded, and would not otherwise be presented. , - Kjsolvea, That we desire to record our firm and sincere convlctiottilhat in his actions in the Li cence Court, Jndge White was not actuated by any other motive than an honest desire to faith fully discharge his duties in accordance with bis oath of office, the lawof the land and his responsi bility to his conscience. l'csoivcd. That the proposition to impeach a Judge for the exercise of his discretion vested in him by the law is a direct assault on the freedom and independence or the Judiciary and as such is to be deprecated and resisted as destructive of our Institutions. CEOEGE III. CATCHES IT. Dr. Wallace, as a member of the committee, defended the resolutions. He said the people of the Scwickley valley are shocked at this at tack upon their respected townsman. Judge White. He dwelt upon the good qualities of the jurist, treated the movement against him more as the designs of ljqnor men than of learned attorneys, and said that the spirit of the American people would always protest acalnst such assaults. Of the originator of these impeachment resolutions at Harrisburp; lie said that George, or whatever his name was. I, II, or III cither, was not the man in age or experience that Judge White is, aud that now the public thoroughly understand what his motives were in offering such resolutions. "But the Georges all the way down never amounted to much," concluded the speiker. Mr. Patterson, also a member of the commit tee, made a few remarks. Of George Shiras, 1IL, be said that be was a young man. sore from some defeat, who had let his auger sweep him into this movement. Continuing, he said: "Judge White's dominant characteristic is his courage. He bas administered the law in this license question with a nerve that few men would have dared to exhibit. It required cour age to gradually cut down the number of saloons in this county, where two cities bad been overrun with saloons." A BESUM PEDICTEto: Rev. Dr. Jas. Allison, editor of the Presby Urian Banner, told of his long intimacy with Judge White, extending down from boyhood, and then spoke of the Judge's activity in all Sewickley enterprises. Dr. Allison continued: "We are glad to see that scarcely anybody believes these charges against the Judge. Why, the unfortunate young man at Harrisburg who made the charges does not believe them him- . -belt, III venture. This is simply intimidation intimidation of the bench, which must next year pass on the liquor licenses again, both in Pittsburg and Philadelphia. ' "I once knew a boy who went out to shoot birds near Bakerstown, when I was a child. In those days the old style of blunderbusses had to be loaded with a whole handful of powder and a handful of shot. Well, the boy shot at tho bird. Tho bird was not hurt, but we found the boy sprawling on bis back in a fence cor ner. ow, that is the way with this youthful shooter down at Harrisburg. He finds himself lying broad on bis back. The temperance poo Tie despise him. The saloonkeepers despise him, too, for he gave them away. They did not ask him to do this. 'Whatfwill be the result of all this? The Anglo-Saxon race have always had that pecul iarity of strongly wishing, to obey the law of The land. All their revolutions have been con stitutional in origin ana purpose. That ii the time of George 1. was constitutional. So was it when William aud Mary wrested tho govern ment from James. In our own revolutionary struggle the Constitution was in view, and also In our late Civil war. Now this will help to brine about the Constitutional revolution that of June IS." The resolutions were then adopted by an up roarious vote. It was unanlmous,and the meet ing adjourned. STRIKING RIGHT OUT. An Orator nnd His Hearers in a V. P. Church Condemn tho JudgcV Assall nnts Stronelj Supporting His Honor. The same subject discussed in the pre ceding article also came; up prominently in a meeting in this city. Homer L. Castle, Esq., addressed a large and enthusiastic -audience on the "subject of Prohibition Amendment last night at the Eighth United Presbyterian Church on Van Braam street, and tbe people, who bad evidently come there to listen to an entertalnlne address upon a topic so interesting to them, were not disap pointed. The speaker was introduced as intending to treat bis subject from a commercial standpoint. Among other things, he said: "To speak upon tbe subject before us to an Intelligent audience like this deserves on my part an apology, because there IS not a road that has been traversed so often as this one abouYprohibitlon. 1 can't tell yon anything else than what you haTe probably heard many A time. But yet I do believe wo cannot really say too much about it. Our enemies are up and doing; they are constantlyawaae, and ever lastingly rdfuting the convicting arguments natch we hurf ajainst them, and it is necessary v: J for us to keep on, too, until the curse of intem perance has ueen wipeuavyay rum uurcuuniry. We cannot, dare not, stop, half way. No more than this country could exist as the peer amohc civilized nations, by being composed of' a part of freemen and the other part slaves,-no more can we allow one part tor be drunk, while the other part is sober. -Now these people tell us .that liquor is a wholesome beverage. It brings' color in the face, and makes a man look ruddy. Yes, bat tbe only part in the face that getl real red Is tbe nose, aud that spoils it! "Then the people say that high license would reduce the saloons. I tell you if saloon licenses cost 2,500 each their number would not de crease; but what has decreased our saloons? It was Judge White, with his little ax! ''However, there is something: in connection with this which I have observed, and I must tell you what it is. We know that only S3 licenses were granted in the city of Pittsburg; but I tell you all the saloon keepers nearly are enlarging their places at least threefold, and hence we bare really 279 saloons In the city alter ail. "Still, we are told tbe high license law only allows respectable saloons to be kept. On that point I will simply say that. In my opinion, tbe places of mirrors and'outward elegance and re spectability are just tbe places which attract our boys and lead them to, the coal of perdi tion; aud I say therefore: Let tho respectable saloon go first, and the low, dlsreputabUMives will co out of existence anyhow. "But then, look at the enormous revenue we get from the liquor trade! That Is another cry we hear, and it reminds me of the story in the Bible where the Lord drove seven devils out of a man and cast them into a herd of swine. The Lord who had every reason to expect .that tbe Hebrews would be grateful to him for what he had done was told: -"It is all very well to cast devils out of a man, but just think of the hogs; they have drowned themselves, where wo might have sold them to the Romans, and made money out of them.' That is just what a good many people say, who do not drink themselves, and have nothing to do with the liquor business: 'Give it to the white-aproned army, and let them create rev enue for our State.' "Ah, my dear friends, the Lord has given us the power to get this amendment Into our Con stitution, aud I hope we will get it there.' It is all the Constitution requires to be perfect. And not only that; it will bo out of reach of our six Denny Pennsylvania Legislature, and no legis lator will be able to touch it to make political capital out of it. What consummate asses legislators can make, of themselves has been sufficiently demonstrated to you in tho last few days I "Just consider the Iniquity of endeavoring to impeach a man. a Judge, who construes the law In a sense highly beneficial to the people and the morality of tho masses. Any constit uency that will again return such a man and support him, I have my opinion of, as an Ameri can citizen. "Dear friends, tho country is in abont the samo position as it was during the war. Tbe Union forces, our boys in blue, were driven steadily back from Richmond. Back, back, they had to go, until they came into Pennsyl vania. But here, on the field of Gettysburg, they rallied themselves, ana from that day vic tory upon victory was fought, until the rebels were defeated, bhall it be the same this time? We were defeated in New Hampshire, in Massachusetts, In West Virginia, in Ohio and in Michigan; now then, let us once more make a Gettysburg in Pennsylvania, aud defeat tho curse of llquur on June 18." The speaker was repeatedly and enthusiasti cally applauded during his discourse. At the conclusion the motion was made that every body in the meeting express his determination to work and vote for the Constitutional amend ment on June 18, and everybody sustain Judge White in his course of action in the last License Court. Tho resolution was unanimously adopted. i A CHAT WITH HIS H0S0R. Judgo White at Homo Tells Some New Phases of tho Sensation Threatening Letter Received by Him. Judge "White spent the entire day and evening at his modest little home in Sewick ley yesterday. He did not attend the public meeting of the townspeople at night, hut found ample work in opening, reading and assorting nearly 100 letters that came to him in tbe mails from some of tbe most prominent citizens of Pittsburg, Allegheny and other places. These letters extended congratulations to the Judge for the stand be had taken both in the refusal of licenses, and the manner in which he met the attack upon him In the Legislature. The Judge declined to let the names of his corre spondents be known, as they were private let ters, although the reporters were permitted to read many of them confidentially. It turns out that Judge White lias also re ceived a few letters of a different nature. Tbey were anonymous in all cases, and in a few. in stances were signed "White Caps." They con tained threats, both mild and alarming, but His Honor, who even yet is perfectly fearless in all his movements, laughs at the epistles as the efforts of ignorant jokers to scare him. When asked by the reporter to permit the Shiras letters in the Schad license case to be published in The Dispatch, the Judge re plied: ".N'o: I cannot do that now. What is the use? The fuss is all over at Harrisburg, and while Sir. Shiras was offended at me, I have no desire to procrastinate the subject aud keep up excitement by making these letters public. Hr. Shiras may have them though, if he wants the newspapers to publish their contents." "Will you accept Mr. Shiras' invitation to meet him in his office and hear 50 specific charges against your administration?" ".No, sir; I am not so foolish as to go to Mr. Shiras' private office inr any such purpose. I know nothing about '50 specific charges.' " Then, in reply to a series of questions cover ing sensational street gossip about the manner in which licenses were granted. Judge White said: "I knew nothing abont politics in the First ward. My information about tbe reputa tion ol saloon keepers there came from sources totally foreign to poli tics. I never was in consultation with the heads of city departments but once. That was when I sent for Chief Brown to tell him of evidence which I had received as to why tho Hamilton Hotel should receive a license. He was accompanied by Chief Elliot, hut the latter bad nothing what ever to say. No one living knew who were to get licenses bnt myself. I did not even let my stenographer know. The only change I made on tho list after it was made up finally was in tho case of P. J. Foley, whom I struck on! the list. "If I feel as I do now a year hence I shall resign rather than accept the hard work and responsibility of tho License Court again. I never said Judge Bwlng shirked.. That was a mistake. I only said that he felt it incumbent upon him not to give up the court ho was then holding." Judge White remembers with ease everv license mentioned to nim, whether refused or granted, no matter in what part of tbe county or cities. And, as tbe reporter found by test ing him, be states without referring to notes his reasons for refusing each license. He will hold court to-day. Joslah Cohen said yesterday that he would be on hand to-day to see what formal disposition Judges White and Magce make of tbe petitions for rebcarings. If they are marked "Refused," then records will be asked for to appeal to the Supreme Court, as John Robb has done for the bottlers. THE! SAY SO, TOO. The Sons of Temperance Unite With Other llrsolvlDC Bodies. At the meeting of the Laurel Division, Sons of Temperance, held at their hall on Fifth avenue, near Washington street, last night, tbe following resolution was adopted: Resolved, That we, the members of the Laurel Division, Sons ot Temperance, folly indorse tbe action of his Honor, J. W. F. White, during the session of tbeLicense Court, andjook upon the resolution for impeachment as an insult to all Christian, moral and well meaning people, and as such should be con demned by ail respectable members of society. THE CONTRACT LET. " Machinery Hnll to be Built by tbe Marshall Foundry Company for $130,000. The directors of the Exposition Society awarded tfc contract for the erection of Machinery Hall to the Marshall Foundry and Construction Company for $130,000, to be completed by September 1. The building will be placed on the east side of tbe main building toward Sixthstreet. One hundred and forty by S00 feet are tho di mensions. Work will De begun in a few days; The directors feel confident ot having suffi cient money to pay Ipr tbe work ,as it pro gresses. The contractors, Murphy fc Hamilton, were given a check yesterday for $15,000 for work done during April un the main building. Tbe following life managers were elected yesterday on payment of 8100 each: Milton L jiaird, J.Xedlie Gloninger, Dr. W. F. Pollock, Hlllis McKown. MoWhlnney & Co- C. H. Jackson, Lutz Bros., Gamble Weir J. W. Ren ner, John Doris, Sr., E. 13. McAbee, John Rudolph, J. W. Rublandt and Henry Becker. Loans were also received from W. V. Young and Marshall Foundry and Construction Com pany of $100 each. Tito Marvelous Escape of a Carpenter, George Pettigrew, a carpenter employed on tbe Eicbbaum building, which is being re paired, fell down tbe elevator shaft yesterday evening about 5 o'clock, the rope, breaking, and sustained serious injuries. A cross-beam saved his life k !PHE TWO m m Both Weihe andMartih Will leave ttie Amalgamated' Associations, THE LATTER BOOKED FOE ENGLAND ( Manufacturers "Will Kot" Confer With the Iron Workers This Tear. POWDEELI EEPOETED TO BE Iff TOWS When the Amalgamated Association of Iron and Steel Workers hold their annual convention next month, the members will he asked to accept the resignations oi the two leading officials; in fact, .they will have no choice in the matter, as President Weihe and Secretary Martin are determined to quit In addition to these withdrawals, Trustee James H. Kutt will also announce his determination to leave the organization, or rather- to be placed on the- retired list. They all have something better in view, and if these recognized rep resentatives of the brains of the organiza tion are lost, the association, It is said, will have a tough row to hoe when they meet a lot of disorganized manufacturers. It will likely be "every man tor himself this year, as the Manufacturers' Association that has here tofore arranged the annual -wago scales with a workers' committee ls'noW extinct and bas been for a year. WHY MABTHT.WITHDBA'WS. President "Welbe, as stated, has announced that he1 positively will not run for re-election, and Secretary Martin, it is stated, will not again accept the position he has so acceptably filled for several years. Mr. Martin was a candidate for tbe position of National Commis sioner of Labor, in place of Carroll D. Wright. He has a stack of Indorsements from labor or ganizations and politicians that, if spread out over the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad track, would probably reach from here to Washing ton. Yesterday Mr. Martin announced that he had withdrawn from the contest, but de clined to give any reasons. When a Dis patch reporter told him that a well authenticated rumor was being circu lated that he was booked for Newcastle-on-Tyne, as a representative of this Govern--stent, he declined to talk on the subject.- He I refused to continue tbe conversation or say anything xurtner, except tnat ne "naa not heard of It." It is an assured fact, however, that Mr. Mar tin ison the list," or will soon be on, for something better than the position he now holds. WHO WILL LEAD THE TIGHT? President Weihe also declined to be inter viewed on the subject. A member of tho or ganization saw that the association had not the backbone of a year or two ago, although the membership was greater than ever before. Ho ridiculed tbe idea that tbe association would go under, but said tbey would have a big fight on their hands. Manufacturers have nothing to say, and all reply to questions as Mr. Harry W. Oliver did yesterday: "I do not know what will be done, as I have Been giving the matter very little attention." It is understood, however, that the manufact urers will not consent to the payment of the present wages for another year, while the workers will insist on their scale. ME. CABKEGIE'S VISIT. It is said that,Mr. Andrew Carnegie's visit to the city at this time is very significant. He proposes, it is stated, to revise the system of work and wages at his largo plants, which are now controlled by the Amalgamated Associa tion. A reduction in tbe wages of tbe men em ployed at Homestead, it is said, is contempla ted. Nothing definite can be said abont the pros pects for next year; but. with tho manufac turers unorganized and tho ' Amalgamated As sociation' solid, it can sarely be said that the workers will win a fight, if their domands are reasonable, notwithstanding the loss of the two highest ofiiclais. Their places will be filled, of course, by able men, as there are undoubtedly many in tbe organization capable of filling the two important positions. Several manufacturers and prominent mem bers of the Amalgamated Association were spoken to in reference to the above, but none of them cared to make any statements except mat inero woaiu not luceiy oe a coniorcnco this Tear as heretofore. The statement that Mr. Martin will not be a candidate for tho Sec retaryship was acknowledged by a labor leader who has returned from Washington. He said: A PEIVATE CONFERENCE. "When I was Jn Washington I attended a private conference at which Mr. Martin's namo was mentioned, and his recommenda tions for the Commissionership of Labor were discussed. It was admitted by all that no man ever came so well recommended for a Govern ment position as he has. It was set down as a positive fact that he must have Something, and will get it whether it is a Consulate to Newcastle or not. The retirement of the two heads of tho organization aud tbe dissension among tho roughers and catchers may affect the association to a certain extent, but I be lieve that equally good men can be found in the order to take their places, and seenre a fair wage scale tor the men?' A prominent worker who is able to fill either place in the organization said ho would not have any of the offices, as there is not enough salary attached to them. This will likely be tbe difficulty, as most of the men capable of filling the positions arc now earning more than $1,500 per year, tbe salary paid the president. NO COMMITTEE LIKELY. Among the manufacturers seen on! the sub ject was Mr. James H. Lindsay, of the firm of Lindsay & McCutchcon, who has represented the manufacturers on the conference 'commit tee. He said he did not believe the manufact urers would appoint a committee to meet the workers, but that if a scalo was drawn up by tbe Amalgamated Association it would have to be presented to the individual firms for con sideration; As stated above, tbe Manufacturers' Asso ciation that al was s considered tbe wage ques tion was dissolved almost a year ago. A member of the firm of Carnegie. Phipps fc Co. was seen late last night and stated that the report that they contemplated some chanjfes In tbe scale was unfounded. A MATERIAL REDUCTION. The Green Glass Blowers Ashed to Accept Less Wages for the Next Blast A Very SIcnificnnt Letter. . Thomas Wightman, of this city, who is President of the Green Glass and Bottle JBJowers' Conference, of D. A. 143, K. of L., ,has written a very significant letter to Master Workman Louis Arrincton. In it bo says that the workmen must preparoto accept a material reduction in wages for the next blast, which will begin on September L Mr. Wightman is one of the leading green glass manuf actnf ers of Western Pennsylvania, and was .chosen President of tbe conference. This body is composed of workers and manu facturers, and their duties are to arrange any troubles that may occur during a blast. The workers are all members of the Knights of Xabor divided Into two district assemblies, D. A 113, composed of workers ot tho West, and D. A. 113, composed of workers of the EaSt. When the wage scale is settled for a blast, a Conference Committee of both sides is appointed to settle any difficulties that may arise during a blast. .If the Western blowers accept a reduction in' wages me jawreru workers must louowsuit. An effort was made to see Mr. Wightman as to tbe causes that have led to the proposition for a reduction in wages, but as he Is out of tho city he could not be seen. One of the workers, who is among the leaders In tho organisation, said yesterday: 1 dO not know why there should be a reduc tion In wages, and do not know why a reduc tion should be offered, as trade is very good at present. The letter received by Mr. Arrlngton from President Wightman says: 'A very ma terial reduction.' It will therefore not be any ordinary reduction, but a big one. I do not be lieve the workers will accept any reduction, especially a 'material' one. Wo will hold a convention some time in July; the place bas not yet been named; but 1 am positive the con vention will npt consent to any reduction In wages. The Eastern and Western District As semblies of tbe Knights of Labor will combine on tho matter, and we may give them able fight" , CARNEGIE 1HJ:HE CITY. Tbe Great Steel Call 'Kins Cane Here to Attend to Private Business. Andrew Carnegie, the steel Tail king of this country, "arrived'in the city yesterday. -He'wtt accompatiied by:6eorge Lander, and" i -j '-; kf;;i .:' EHrTSBTJR'G - DISPATCH, "" Jiis family, .who have just Teturnedfrom a trip to Europe. Mr. Carnegie bad very little jto say about his visit to'Plttsburg. Ho will re-' niain. here abont a week and attend meetings of corporations in which he is interested. , About the 15th inst. be will sail for Europe -and visit the Exposition at Paris. In speaking of the strike at the Duquesne Steel Works he said he did not know there was a strike and had not contributed to the support ox tne strik ers. He declined to talk abont the South Penn Railroad discriminations or anything else, say. ing he had merely come here on private busi ness. IS T. V. POWDERLI HERE? A Number of People Positive That They Saw Him Lnst Night nt tbe Duquesne, bnt He Could Not bo Fonnd. It was reported around, the Hotel Du quesne last evening that General Master Workman T, V. PowJerly, of' the fenigt'ts' of Labor, was in, the city .and was? stopping ai ins notei. ne was trying w,ci suaay for some unknown reason, - and refused to register his name. He was seea about 8, o'clock going into the hotel by a printer, who has attended Knights ot Labor general con ventions, and had several, times con-; versed with the General Master workman. About an hoar previous to this, an attache of tbe botel, said ho also saw Mr. PowdeHy. About 9:30 he was also presumably seen in the hotel office by a reporter, who, for reasons oest known to the profession, did not deem it ad visable to speak to himin tho presence of oth ers. The roporter heard tho clerk order the porter to "show Mr. Powderly to his room," and the guest who went up with the porter was the very image of Mr. Powderly. About 20 minutes after this occurrence are porter called at the hotel and asked to see Mr. Powderly. The clerk was positive that'there was no" such person in tho bouse, and said Mr. Powderly had not been around tho botel all evening. The clerk knew Mr. Powderly," he said, on account ot tbe many times he stopped at the bouse, but be was not there then. In quiry at other hotels failed to find him. If tbe General Master Workman is in the city, there is not the least doubt but that he came here upon the matterof tho imported for eign glassbfowers, and tho charges made against L. A. 300, of the Knights of Labor. Ho must have taken extra precautions or he would not bavo been able to escape tbe hotel reporters. He generally stops at the Central, and his idea in going to the Duquesne was probably to ward off the interviewers, who would not expect to meet a labor leader in a high-toned hotel. THE STHIKERS FIRM. They Believe Tbey Will Win ntDnqnein Small Riot. Although everything was quiet in and around the Duquesne Steel Works yester day, the first thing talked of in the morning was a small riot which occurred at about 11:30 o'clock last night, in which an Italian, Jeremiah Poluski, was badly injured. Foluskl and a companion went up to Risher station on tbe 1230 a. M. train, and was seen by a press representative. He said that he had come down to the steel works from McKeesportto induce his brother, who works in the mill, to come out and go home with him. While trying to gain an entrance to the yard about six or eight men came up to him, and without giving him time to explain himself, began to club and stone him. He substantiated his story by showing the wounds ho had received, the worst of which were a large lumpen his forehead above the right eye, which, he said, was made with a mace, and a-very large' cut over' the left temple, from which blood was running very freely. John Fink, the man who was injured on Sun day morning, is reported as getting well.- and it is thought that he will be able to be about hi a few days. When tho 9:45 jv.ii. train came in yesterday morning 23 men of several nationalities got off at Oliver station, and were escorted to the works by Blx deputies, Mr. E. T. Clark and the employment agent, A P. Geisler. Abont four days ago Gelslor was advised not to come to Duquesne any more, and not having put in an appearance until yesterday, tho strikers were congratulating themselves that he had disap peared and would bring no more men up. Monday night at a bite hour tbe two Gil hooleysand two other men employed in tbe works made their appearance' at the postoffice, opposite the hall, while the strikers were in session. One of the strikers who had seen this stated to a press representative that if the steel company permuted their) meb.to walk around tho town In that manner after nie-ht. or even in daylight, that a riot was liable to occur at most any moment, notwithstanding tbat it is against their policy to participate in such work. At noon yesterday John Hess, a roller, who had been with tbe strikers at first, came out and rejoined them. He said tbat he bad be come disgusted with the way his assistants were doing the work, and thought It best to quit xne sinners neia a meeting in citizens' nail yesterday morning, at which not much was done except that tbey resolved to stand firm and have meetings every day or two, in order tbat the men might be kept together and stand out until their domands were acceded to. ' Reports were also beard from the soliciting committees. They reported that everyplace they visited had give them great encourage ment if they would stand out They claim that they have been guaranteed about 300 per week. TO OEttANIZE AGAIU. The Pipe Manufacturers Will Kevlvo Their' Old Association. An effort is about to be made to organize the old pipe manufacturers' association, which was disrupted just oneear ago. A meeting will be held in New York to-day, and Judging from the number of peoplo who went from this city, the meeting will be attended by abont every pipe manufacturer in the country. Since the disorganization of tho association last May the manufacturers of tho iron pipe havo felt tho loss of tho association, which, although it did not strictly' main tain rJrices, it went a great ways to ward doing so aud maintained a sort of uniformity among tho trade. When the asso ciation went to pieces every manufacturer in the country began cutting prices right and left This continued until they hadlost thousands of dollars, when it was seen tbat it was necessary to have another orgauization. Several meet ings have been held, and at the ono to-day the organization of tbe association will probably be completed. The Pittsburg manufacturers who left last evening for New York to attend' the meeting were Joshua Rhodes, representing the Penn sylvania Tubo Company; Campbell Herron, of Spang, Chalfant & Co.; A. M. Byers, of Byers & Co., and Captain Murdoch, ex-secretary of the association. Labor Notes. Cojtteactoks deny the statement that they have agreed to pay the demands of the stone masons. It is said that4heprico of coke has dropped to SI per ton. Operators admit tbat trade Is very uull, NEW TJEIpGE TOLLS. Freight Rates to Go Into Effect on Missis sippi River Business.

CABLE EXTENSHWiAT OAKLAND. rreparftUons.io.,Giyo .Rapid Transit, to An-r"- other District.. It;wagflearaed yesterday from a credible jsource,that tho boon or rapid transit for which the Oakland district between Fifth avenue .and the Manongahelarhas been anx iously fooking is soon to come. Plans are stated to.be in course of preparation, and ordinances, it is understood, will be introduced in Councils next weekfor the .laying of a cable lino .from tbe power house at. Oakland down Atwood street to Coquet, along Boquet to Frazier, along Frazier to Ward, and thence by Ward to bemple street, where connection will be made again with Atwood street At first a horie-car line was spoken of for this section, but the place is building up so rapidly and promises to be so thickly settled that it was seen cablo traction would bo more economical and better suited to it in tbe end. The-Pittsburg Traction Company is under taking tbe enterprise. Tbe district, it is be lieved, will verv soon be the most, profitable feeder or that road. Already it is much in de mand as a place of residence because of its nearness to tbe older parts of the city, and with this Improvement it will doubtless be still more rapidly built up. Two of the principal streets over which tbe route of the new cable is con templated, Atwood aud Boquet, are to be graded and paved this summer. It is said that the cable work, it soon started, can be finished by October, , THEIR 'ANNUAL MEETING. Old Ofilcefs Re-Elcctcd by tuo.P.,V. fc C. Directors Yesterday.
