A special committee of Post 3 -yesterday marked the graves of their deceased comrades in the different cemetries with a small G. A. R, flag so that tbe graves may be readily f onnd anddecorateu with flowers. Their desire is that none shall be missed. Though the number of victims of the civil war interred in our cemeteries is ascertain able, no member of the G. A. R. found yes terday seemed to know it. The greater number are in the Allegheny, the Northside and Southside Cemeteries, but it islcnown that tbere are about 48 in the Oakland, 35 in Hinersville and 60 in the Lincoln, colored, cemeteries. As to the number of flags 1,440 were secured from home parties, but of the entire amount no record seems to have been kept The school children of Allegheny contributed 6,000 potted plants to tbe G.

Prof. Golden, of the Twenty ninth ward school, presented tbe flowers to the Grand Army committee, and W. T. Powell re ceived them. Several of the glass manufacturers on tbe Southside have offered tbe uso of wagons to haul tbe flowers to tbe various cemeteries. Tbere are 305graves to be decorated on tbe bouthside.

THE" EEFUSE' TO CONFER. Ihe Iron Workers' Proposal Eejected l)j tho Manufacturers. LETTER FROM SECRETART WEEKS. President Campbell Saya He is Willing to be investigated! MINERS OBJECT TO PIDCEME STORES There will be no conference this year be tween the iron manufacturers and the work ers on the annual wage scale. This -will be the first time in the history of the Amalga mated Association of Iron and Steel Work ers, which .was organized in 1874, that a con ference has been refused by the manufact urers. In past years tbe Manufacturers' Association handled all such questions, and appointed committees to meet the workers. A. F. Keating was president and Joseph I). "Weeks was secretary of the organization. This association, however, went to 'pieces last year, and when President 'Weihe, of the Amalgamated Association, addressed a formal note to Secretary Weeks announcing that they were about to draw up a-scale ot. wages for tbe comingyear and would appoint a committee to confer with a like committee of manufacturers, be received a reply from Secre tary Weeks. In it Mr. Weeks stated that there was no association of manufacturers and no committee conld be appointed. Tbere will, therefore, be no conference with the iron mas ters this year and the lodges in each mill will present the scale that will bo drawn up this week and revised by the convention next week to the different firms. Tbe scale WILL BE TOTIFOBM, and if any firm objects to a clause in the scale, and it is modified, all other firms will have the same advantage. Secretary Martin has issued the following to the members of 'the association : In reply to the request orPresidenfWelhe to the manufacturers, through Mr. Joseph 13. Weeks, to name a day when they could meet a conference committee ol the Amalgamated Association, Mr. Weeks replied that there was no way by which they can pet together a committee to represent the association of manufacturers of Iron, steel and nails, as It Is not now in existence. There is nothlncr now left for the Amalgamated Associa tion to do but formulate its new scale and present It to each firm through the proper committees. Now let every member of the Amalgamated Asso ciation keep his own counsel. Uo all your busi ness with your firm through tbe proper commit tee, and in no other war. and await results. President Weihe has selected the following named persons as tho Wage Committee: William Welne, President: "William Martin, Secretary: James Penney, Treasurer: Dennis cj'Leary, Vice President: second district: James Grundy, Vice President. Third district: James ,F. Cooocr, Vice President. Fourth district: W illiam "tt lineman. Vice President, Fifth district: .31. M. Garland.southslde lxdire No. 11.

This committee will meet at tbe Amalga mated Association headquarters to-morrow morning, and consider the scale suggestions mado ud by tbe different lodges in tne organi zation. Tne work will require three or four dars, but tbe committee expects to have the scale ready for presentation to tbe delegates at tbe convention when it meets next Tuesdav. Tbe convention may make some revisions, and tbe scale will then be printed and presented to each firm by the Mill Committee. Last year, it will be remembered, tbe confer ence, agreed to disagree, and the same plan as is proposed now followed. Oliver Brothers Phillips was the first firm to drop into line and sign the scale for their several large plants. OTHEBS FOLLOWED SUIT, Carnegie followed, and then a signed scale from the Junction Iron and Steel Company was received. Many within a week after the con ference adjourned signed scales. Tbentbey began to come in very rapidly at headquarters until the middle of July, when Jones fc Laugh hns. the largest iron firm affected, attached their signature to tbe agreement. Tbis settled tbe trouble, and all the others signed. Tbe members of tbe association do not an ticipate any trouble this year, notwithstanding the fact that the manufacturers will not confer with them. N one of them will venture a pre diction as to what demand they will make, but an agree mat it can ue saieiy stated tnat the present scale, with some slight modifications, will be presented. The only hitch will be with the steel scale, as, it is stated, Carnegie, Fblppsd: Co. propose to make a fight on it. This trouble may be satis factorily settled. If war is declared it is claimed that tho workers can stand a siege'of eight weeks very comfortably, as the funds in tbe treasury are larger than usual. The Labor Tribune, in commenting on tbe wage question, editorially says: There seems to be considerable trouble in the newspapers about the arrangement of the figures ofthecomiug scale year, and It may be that this may extend into the Iron and steel Industiies"be fore tbe annual signing Is done; .however, it Is hardly within the probabilities that tbere will be difficulties equal to those that have been In some years in the past. The situation has Its main pe culiarity In that trade has been so vervgoodln England that wages have been advanced ma terially, while In America this has not been tbe case. As might be expected of business men, the mill owners take the opportunity presented by these condltlous to endeavor to mace a fewpolnts on wages and on tbe terms of labor. There Is nothing surprising In this; It would be surprising were they to. permit the chance to pass unim proved. READY TO BE TRIED. Fresldcnt Campbell Talk About the Charges to be Preferred Against Bint He Aka for an Investigation. The investigation on the arrival of the foreign glass blowers will be held within a week or two(land some important develop ments are expected. A statement has been made that President Campbell, of tbe Window Glass Workers' Association, will not enter into any investigation, but a friend of his says that one of the members of the Trades Council, who bad been appointed to confer with the window glass men in regard to the proposed investigation, had broken faith with them and had the minutes of the meeting Eublished in spite of the fact tbat the premise ad been inaue to keep that part secret. The members of the Window Glass Union are very indignant, and they repudiate all the charges made against tbem. "There, were statements In those minutes which tbe window glass men are guarding as anxiously as anything, and they wpold not like to see tbem published on any account," said the friend. "These men committed a very serions piece of indiscretion by giving such things away. However, 1 am sure that the window glass workers do not want to have any more to do with tbe men, and the in vestigation is off beyond a doubt, "The Window Glass Association will draw np a statement, and tbey will ask tbe Irades Council to sne tbem in the United States Court on tbe charges which they want to have in vestigated now. If the Trades Council refuses to do tbat then the window glass men will sne themselves in court, and tbe entire thing will come out anyway. Certain mert should have treated tbe confidence of L. A. 303 in a little more courteous manner. They had no right to give away the financial minutes of the pro ceedings of any of their meetings, and for that reason tbey Tef use to have any more to do with them. In my opinion the whole fight has been nothing else than apolitical dodge from be ginning to end." President Campbell was seen at bis office by a Dispatch reporter last night and said:- "We have not refused to be investigated, and are ready at any time to have a committee look Into our books. We do not propose to sne ourselves, but are willing to stand a suit if necessary as wo have done nothing that is wrong. Our asso ciation bas not named a man to act on tbe com mtteewholsa member ot the organization, but we have agreed on two men. They are John Carey, amemberoftbe Amalgamated Associa tion, who is employed at Jones & Langhlms' mill, and William Kube, President of the Musi cal Mutnal Protective Union. We are willing to be investigated, and will consent to tho ap pointment ot William Weihe as tbe fifth man. He can come over here and examine our books and all documents in our possession. I think be is inclined to be fair, and all the members I have spoken to are willing to allow tbe case to go into bis bands. There seems to be an effort on tbe pan of some ot the members of the Kfilghtsot Labor to prove that I bad a band in bringing theso men over, bntl will not say any thing until the matter is tried." - TflERE IS JtO SPLIT. The Rnmors of Trouble- Between the Car penters and K. of L. Are Denied. A letter was received from P. J. Mc Guire, of the American ;FetIeratIon oMJabor, and one of tbe national officers of the Broth erhood , of Carpenters and Joiners, yester day, denying a statement recently published in this city about the latter organisation, Tne PITTSBURG- 'DISPATCH;-' statement was to tbe effect that a split was imminent among tbe carpenters, and that tbe brotherhood would fight tbe K. of L. Mr. McGuire denies that any general-officer lias ever issued a circular notifying members of the brotherhood that any of them whd are members of the Knights of Labor cannot re ceive sick, death or strike benefits. He adds that he-and a few hundred other members jof the brotherhood are members of mixed assem blies of tbe Knights of Labor, are friendly to harmonious relations: and be has recently been In conference with Mr. T. V. Powderly. The brotherhood has no objection to its members joining mixed assemblies of the Knights of Labor, bnt does not permit them to be in more than one organization of carpenters. Mr. McGuire is emphatic in bis assertions tbat the American Federation of Labor has no intention nf fighting tbe Knights of Labor, and attributestbe stories of this nature that have been circulated in Pittsburg within the past year to someone who is envious of the good name, progress and prosperity of the Carpen ters' Union, SCORING COMPANY STORES. miners Hold a Warm Discussion Strong Resolutions Adopted Declaring- That They Must Go. Twenty-seven delegates from different miners lodges held a lively meeting in Knights of Labor Hall yesterday to make a protest acainst the system of company stores, conducted by many of the employers.

The handsome little monnment over the grave of the late Major Oustav Schleiter, in the Homewood Cemetery, was unveiled yester day afternoon, with appropriate ceremonies. About 200 persons, including tbe Frohsinn Singing Society, representatives of tho Union Veteran Legion. Post 8, 0. A! B., and tbe Seventy-fourth Regiment Pennsylvania Volun teers, were present. Mrs. Schleiter, tbe de ceased's widow, and her family were there, ac companied by Mr. Schleiter's aged mother. Tbe exercises were presided over by Judge Collier. Bev. Carl Weil made the opening prayer, after which Jadee Collier referred to tne aeaa citizen ana soimer ana saia; "I knew this good brother personally. We are hereto-day, the friends of that man who deserves well of those he left behind, and or his country. I feel Justified In saying he was a good man, a good father, a good husband, a good son and a good soldier." The Frohsinri Society then sang "The Singer's Grave." Major E. A. Montootb was introduced and pronounced the following eulogy. -We meetlo-dayTorthe purposeur unveiling a monument to tbe memory or one, whose memory we delight to honor Major Uustav Schleiter. It is an numble tribute from those who knew him In this life. and who cherish the recollection of him as one who was a patriot a worthy citizen a brave soldier a Kind, true and tender-hearted man. Ho belonged to a class (I would It were larger) of men who 1n a quiet, unostentatious manner so conduct themselves as unconsciously to win golden opinions from all sorts of neonle. He was pure In nls life, honorable In his dealings with his fellow men, firm In his friendships, for giving to his enemies, and bas left behind him a name well honored and esteemed. In this quiet cemetery, where cosily marble columns, pointing heavenward, and bumble, stones, scarce reaching above tbe green sward. mark the last resting place of those who sleep, waiting till the Master comes, reposes no moTe noble one than him of wbom we speak. Hehas gone to that land which nothing lucloses to fields and glorious meadows so distant and so vast, tbat from Its con fines no traveler has ever yet returned. He has finished his fight and has now entered upon his reward. He was of those of wbom your children and your children's children may. when tbey read tbe story of the past, with Its recital of deeds of patriotism and unselfish devotion to conn try, say theirs was indeed affection tor the land they loved so well. "Of foreign birth.be became an adopted citi zen. He cherished the principles of the Constitu tion of bis chosen country. When tbe band of traitors was raised against tbe flag be was among the first to volunteer for Its protection. How well and nobly he discharged that duty we all know. Around us to-day are gathered men who served with blm In his command, and who with eyes dimmed with tears In silence tell a far greater storr of bis bravery as a soldier, his kindness as an officer and his worth as a man, than words of mine can do. Never despairing always cheerful, he stood shoulder to shoulder with tbem In many a hard fought battle, animated at all times with the one rand belief, and tbat that the cause for which e suflered so much would in tbe end triumph. "He lived until tbat belief became reality, and saw tbe banner of tbe free float from the highest fiolnt In the citadel of the enemy. I speak ieel ngljr of blm. for I knew blm. If 1 praise blm highly. It Is the praise f a friend. A braver, truer, nobler, more generous man never lived," After the speaker had finished his very pa thetic oration, the. Frobslnn sang another song and Bev. Carl Weil pronounced the benedic tion, which concluded tbe ceremony. BREWERS OX JDDGE WHITE. Abont Fifteen Delegates Will Go to tbe Na tional Convention. The regular weekly meeting of the Alle gheny County Brewers' Association was held yesterday at their rooms ou Fourth avenue. Tbe meetings, which were formerly so prolific of spicy incidents and news items, have now settled down into merely routine work. At yesterday's gathering tbe most important matter wss the discussion of Judge White's speech at Old City Hall. The President of tbe association, Mr. Straub, discussed It at great length, and pointed ont a "number of inconsistent remarks in tbe address. Tbe statements made by Judge White, while sitting in the License Court, were shown to be at variance with some of bis re marks Tuesday evening.

TEXTRSBAX ' l&LY i 30,", GOING AS'BENEDICTS. Five loung Hen Will Tako Wives With Them to India and Eypt TO ASSIST IN MISSIONARY WORK. A Contract is Signed to Remain In Foreign Lands Ten lean IK THE INTEREST OP THE U. P. CHUECH Quite a romance, as well as an interesting precedent, is attached to the five young men recently appointed from the United Presby terian Seminary in Allegheny to go as mis sionaries to Egypt and India, notice of which appeared in The Dispatch a few days since. The five young men will sail for the fields of their labor in the middle or last of September. All are now single, but it is understood that each one will carry to his new home a bride and helpmate. At least one of the young ladies is a Pittsburg girl. The young men are now studying and planning for their new work, and it is supposed the five brides arc preparing their trousseau and reading works on the .heath ens, Incident to commencing their long wed ding tour and honeymoon. ihe youngmen's names are: K, 33. Fife, T. F. Cummlngs andT. E. Holliday. who go to India, and E. M. Griffin and W. M. Nichols, who will labor among the Egyptians. They will not be permitted to visit home or friends again for ten years according to the agreement nnder which tbey are sent. Five, young brides and five grooms with more than the responsibilities of mamed life suddenly cast on them will sail away for heathen lands. , Three of the young men will bo sent and sus tained for the ten years by churches. Mr. Fife will be sent by the Second United Presbyterian Church, Allegheny. Mr. Cummlngs by the Fourth United Presbyterian Churcb. Alle gheny, and Mr. Nichols by the Third United Presbyterian Church; Pittsburg. Their sal aries will be from SLZOOto 21,400 per year, and tbe jnemuera uavu jjieugeu inemseives to give on ferent sums per year in tbelr support, outside of tbe regular missionary contributions. A gentleman named Stewart, of Indiana, will send Messrs. Griffin and Holliday. WHERE THEY WILL GO. Messrs. Griffen an d Nichols will land at Alex andria, and, according to the present proposed arrangements, will proceed to Asyoot, 200 miles np the Nile river, wbere they" will spend abont a year learning tbe languages and dialects they will bave to encounter, at tbe Presley Memorial Institute. Tbe latter was founded through tbe beniflcence of Bev. J. D. Presley. late pastor for 40 years of the First U. P. Church, Alle gheny. Among the teachers at tbe school Is Miss Jessie Hogg, sent and sustained by the Young People's Missionary Society of tbe Second U. P. Church, Allegheny, three years ago. From the institute they will be assigned fields of work In some of tbe towns or cities by the Egypt Presbytery of the Church. Tbey will labor principally among tbe Mo hammedans and Copts. The latter are a fanati cal race, who have some ideas of religion, but very corrupt practices. Until the English gained a nominal control over them tbey were accustomed to put to death those of their friends who professed religion in its true light, and a missionary's life was not all pleasure. But this is changed greatly now. , Tbe heathen counties are districted off by the different evangelical denominations so tbat all may do the most workpossible without con flicting. The United Presbyterians bave tbe whole of Egypt, and are responsible to tbe world for carrying the gospel to its multi tudes. Messrs, Fife, Cammings and Holliday will land at Bombay, and will then be assigned teacners to learn tne languages wnicn tney wiu have to use. The principal languages are the HCTOOSXAHESE ANT TJBDTT, but the dialects are countless and hard to master. Tho region assigned to the United Presbyterians in Iudia is called the "Three Rivers" region. It is in the northwestern part, and was the scene of tbe great Sepoy rebellion. It touches the Himalaya Mountains on the north. Its inhabitants number over 5,000,000 people. Although a missionary bas to leave bis friends and give himself up wholly to tbe work of the Lord, hl life is rarely ono of privation In tbe present age. None of tbe luxuries of life are denied blm. Tbey always bave com fortable, though somewhat rude and novel houses, and their salaries make it possible for tbem to live verv comfortably. In a town of any size wbere be is located, in a short time he Is looked up to as authority and respected and is often nominally chief. The climate is the worst difficulty to contend with and unless a man or woman is physically sound they often come back to die or are buned in tbe land of tbelr endeavors. Those tbat go now are sub jected to a physical examination, according to tbe rule of tbe United Presbyterian Churcb. In addition to tbe five mentioned above, a missionary will be sent by Zehla College, mak ing six in all. COMING Y0QAL CONCERT. Father DIcDermott'a School Pupils Will Entertain Their Friends.
