re tV THE PITTSBURG- .DISPATCH, SATURDAY,' SEPTEMBER '14 1889J ?3 HI 1 How Mr. Herrington Came Without Papers from Ohio. ' THE BABBS CASE BEGINS. Hearing Postponed Until Farther Evidence is Secured. BABBS RELEASED ON $3,000 BAIL. Marj Sullivan Had an Affecting Interview With Her Mother. SHE HANKERS TO SMOKE CIGAEETTES Perhaps the most amusing feature, if not the only one in connection with the Scott dale case, was the arrest of Walter Herring ton yesterdav by Detective Phil Demrael. The detective had been chasing his man to and fro for three days without catching up, but leaving a good description with the Youngstown police and instructions how to act, he started for Sew Castle on Friday afternoon. Herrington's friends kept him posted, and of course he headed at once for Youngstown, where he was arrested upon his arrival by the Ohio officers. He entered several protests, but was locked up. Demmel changed his train and starting back to Youngstown arrived soon after his quarry. Harrington showed fight and said he would not leave the State of Ohio unless the proper papers were procured. Demmel tried to persuade him to forego the formality bo as to save time, but in vain, although shown that it was only a question of a day or two when he would be compelled to re turn. Phil Demmel was at his wits' end when with a clang and a rush of gamins laughing and shouting, the Youngstown patrol wagon turned the corner. In it was a Hungarian prisoner howling drunk and most belligerently inclined. MIL'S BRIGHT IDEA WORKED. A bright thought struck Phil. He turned to the Chief of Police and said: "Put that lellow in the cell with Herrington." It was done, and, although the baseballist protest ed, the demonstrative Hungarian was given him for a room mate. The Hungarian rather took a fancy to his companion, and, instead of fighting, began to caress him, which was even more repugnant to his feelings than hostilities would have proved. After ten minutes Demmel sent an officer in to say that he was starting back to Penn sylvania for the necessary extradition papers, when Herrington begged as a lavortogo also rather than stand another hour of the Hungarian's society. Demmel took his man, and had him in Pittsburg in time for the hearing yesterday afternoon. At 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon Magis trate McKenna ascended the judgment seat t hear (he case of Frank Hill, Florence Donaldson, Laura Bailey, "Walter Harring ton, Jacob A. Babbs and Minnie Fleming multifariously charged with the misusing of May Sullivan, nfScottdale. The crowd was a composite one, being made up of all classes of people, lrom grave to gay, among which were three lawyers. THE1AWTERS CONSULTED. It was soon evident that there wouldn't be any hearing, as the lawyers were pow wowing, and some of the people in interest wanted to catch the first train to McKees port to be in time to see the boat race, and it was finally announced that the case would be continued until next Wednesday after noon at 4 o'clock, when some witnesses, said tc be important and non est yesterday, are expected to be on hand. Laura Bailey and Florence Donaldson furnished bail in 51,000 each. Daniel "Wei gold becoming their bondsman. Minnie Fleming was bailed by her father, George Shnpe, of Scottdale, for 1,000. Babbs not being allowed to give bail before the alder man was taken into court, and there en tered bail in 53,000, "W. N. Porter bonds man. Hill and Harrington were unable to lurnish bail and were committed. HE MADE BABBS SQTJIBM. The manner in which District Attorney Porter drew ont Babb's, the jeweler, yester day, was somewhat entertaining to all but the witness. He acknowledged being on the bonds of the postmaster. Collector and four or five other "bonded officials of Scott dale, in all to the amount of 530,000 or $40, 000, while he had not over SO per cent of that amount in real property. Mr. and Mrs. Sullivan visited their daugh ter in the Central station yesterday, and a most affecting scene followed. The mother was almost heartbroken, most of all to say that she was afraid the child's fall was due to one to whom she ought to have been most sacred. As a further evidence of how seemingly hopeless the case of May Sullivan is,Matron Breunen stated last night that she has com menced to smoke cigarettes. After the trial she will most probably be sent to Morganza. 0PEMNG THE CAMPAIGN. Finances Will RecelTo Attention From Re publican Lenders at To-Daj's Meetlog;. Notices have been circulated calling at tention to the meeting of the Finance Com mittee of the Allegheny County Republican Executive Committee, which will take place at 130 P. M. to-dar. This is the first formal meeting since the designation of this committee, and some curiosity exists as to which members are the lolks and which are the people. For the above reason a full turnout is an ticipated, and a considerable element of life may eitter into the proceedings. The cir cular notice states that "business of the ut most importance is to come up tor considera tion." THAT REFINERY. CAbE. Mr. Miller Makes No Defense of His Re finery Before lUe Mayor. The case of A. D.Miller, A. D. Miller, Jr.. and R. R. Miller, charged with main taining a nuisance in the Sixth ward, Alle gheny, was tried before Mayor Pearson last night. Both sides were represented by counsel, but as the defense submitted no testimony the case was remanded to court. Ordinance Officer "W. B. Copeland made the inlormation. The lawyers were City Solicitor Elphinstone for the city, and S. Ii". Schoyer for Mr. Miller. THE AUGUST BDSI5ESS. Income ot the Department of Fnblie Works for the Month Past.

Wylle Atcdoo Grip Cnrs Expected to be Running Then. On Monday workmen will commence on the brickwork of the new "Wylie avenue cable car house. The building will be 400 feet long.andin it will be the eastern loop of the cable. The engineer in charge of con struction now expects to nave the road in operation by November 1. SOME VALUABLE POINTERS. Dr. English Shows HovrCnhle Can and Electric Lights Improve the Health A Paper on City Hygiene. In enumerating "some of the hygienic ad vantages of modern city buildings, with special reference to the respiratory Organs," in a paper read before the State Sanitary Convention, Dr. "W. T. English says among other things that a casual view of our streets, alleys and courts reveals an advance in street paving, Belgian block substituted for cobble stones on the streets and concrete or asphalt on alleys and courts. He quotes Rudolph Hering, who says that one horse can draw as much weight on an asphalt pavement as would require two horses on Belgian block and seven and four fifth horses on cobble stone. Township Koad Supervisors ought to hunt up the authorities, and "when found make a note on't," but Dr. English is more concerned with the subject in a sanitary view. He urges the Belgian block and asphalt on ac count of hygienic considerations. Streets so paved are more easily cleansed. The air contamination is reduced, dust decreased and the streets are largely cleansed by rainfall. Dr. English also finds that cable and electric railways in Pittsburg and Alle gheny, when completed, will remove 4,000 horses from the streets, and the absence of offal incident to such a herd of animals, ex halations of effluvia, dust, gas and odors in numerable constitute only a small portion of the benefits. On the reduction of oxygen waste by the use of electric lights instead ot gas, the doctor finds that the 10,000 street lamps of Pittsburg and Allegheny represent an oxygen waste that would supply a city of 35,000 or 40,000 inhabitants, and the grand total ot oxygen waste saved indoors and outdoors or streets, in business houses and printing offices, factories, etc., by electric lighting in these two cities, he finds enough to supply a city of 115,000 people. He quotes from Dr. Haller and Kriell, of Germany, to prove that inhalation of super heated air is destructive of bacilli, and finds that the use of natural gas in baking the air of public assembly rooms, after the departure of the audience, is valuable for the destruction ot micro-organisms and the rendering of the air aseptic, after which the temperature may be permitted to decline to its wonted place. He indorses the proposition that in all cities there should be provided homes, or hospitals, lor consumptives when deemed advisable the rooms could be heated beyond the temperature of 105 degrees Fahrenheit, at which bacilli perish, and when thought necessary the patient could be advised to inhale for some time the air at the same alti tude which wonld render the lungs aseptic. In 1883 the relative death rate in Pitts burg lrom consumption was nearly 12 per cent. In five years preceding 1889 it never reached more than the average of 9.96 per cent On the whole Dr. English believes that with cleanliness, electric lighting, etc., the cities are improving in both physical and mental health, and that Farr's law of density, which assumes that "The nearer men live to each other the shorter their lives, may be reversed by statistics of future cities. It is in large cities that the greatest progress has been made in hygienic require ments, and in small cities the proportionate death rate is the largest. , THE ROD UKRESTRAIXED. A School Marin Is Alleged to Have Whipped a Boy Bratnlly. Yesterday afternoon George Pottleson, aged 8 years, was taken to the office of the Anti-Cruelty Society by his parents, who live in Noblestown, on the Panhandle road. The parents complained that a school teacher named Lizzie Clark had badly abused the boy, and alleged that she had beaten him with a rattan upon the back and legs and also over the face. Great welts were raised all down the child's back and on his forehead and cheeks. One of the School Board, a Dr. Taylor, is alleged to have taken on himself the in vestigation of the boy's behavior. The whipping was given the boy three days ago, because he denied throwing a dog over the banisters at the school. Superintendent Dean will take the case in hands at once. TWO FATAL ACCIDENTS. A Millwright at Spanc's and a Child Tn atnntly Killed. Joseph Zacharias, millwright at Spang's mill, in Etna, was struck by a passenger train yesterday and killed, while attempting to cross the track. He was 40 years old and leaves a widow and several children. Mary Sobilski, a Polish child, was play ing on Penn avenue, in front of Moses Brown's store. Brown put his connter on the curbstone, and all the children climbed upon it. "While a number of them were on top, the counter upset and Mary's head was caught between the heavy woodwork and road. She died in a few minutes. HITHER AND THITHER. Movements of PIttsbnrgers and Others ol Wide Acquaintance. Bishop Fowler, of the M. E. Church, passed through the city last night on his way home, to San Francisco. He is the head of the church in the extreme West, and has charge of all the territory on the Pacific Slope. Bishop Fowler has jnst returned fram a trip to China and Japan, where he went over all the missions of the church in those countries. He saw all the missions established by the Protestant churches there are in a flourishing condition and doing good work among tbe natives. The latter are rapidly being converted to Christian ity, and churches are being built wherever missions have been established. He says China is not a heathen country, and to prove this he cited a number of cases in towns where there were 20,000 applicants for one literary prize. Hesajs tbe natural resources of tbe country aro fast being developed, although mechanical innovations are looked upon with suspicion. He predicts a great slauchter and a war upon Americans at -no very distant day. The cause, of this is tbe treatment the Chinese have been receiving in this country. He says China never forgives nor forgets, and the masses there are laying up their wrath, which will soon be felt. Torrance C. Hippie, of Lock Haven.Pa., Bight Eminent Grand Commander of the Penn sylvania Masonic Fraternity, Las done the most sensible thing in his life. He has written to James S. McKean a letter In which Pittsbure Commandery No. 1 has been 'designated as es cort to tbe Bight Eminent Grand Commander" of Pennsylvania, at the triennial conclave on October 8 in Washington, D. C. A Pittsburg commandery has never yet bagged this dis tinguished honor, but James S. .McKean, who generally gets what he goes after, succeeded in overcoming the usual predilection toward a Philadelphia commandery. No. 1 will make a magnificent display with no less than 200 good men and true in line. No. 1 wears a large and brilliant feather in its can as a consequence of beinc awarded the pesition of honor in the con clave parade. Kev. D. Nichols, a former Pittsbnrger, but now a resident of Ida Grove, Iowa, passed through the city last evening onhis way home from Gettysburg. Mr. Nichols was a member of Knapp's Battery in this city, and removed West some years ago. Since then bo has been a United Presbyterian minister and a member of the State Legislature. He left active ministerial work for tbe life of a farmer, and is now taking things easy." In speaking of the Corporal Tanner resignation, he stated there was much dissatisfaction expressed among the vets" at Gettysburg about the matter. Senator Manderson, of Minnesota, was one of the sleeping passengers on board the Limited express last night. He was going home from the East. W. M. Clark, Commercial Agent of the Missouri Parific Railroad in this city, left last evening for New York. x Hon. James E. Pngh, of Somerset, was in tbe city yesterday. SPORTSMAN'S SPOIL. In an inter esting article in to-morrow's Dispatch M. C. Williams telts how feathered and furred trophies are Tire- served. -, A MERITED MEMORIAL The Masonic Brethren of Getor C. Shidle Will Honor His Memory IN A VERY SUBSTANTIAL MANNER. "Various Lodges Have Been Appealed to for Contributions. HIS STERLIKG WORTH RECOGNIZED The enduring character ot the Masonic work done by the late Geter 0. Shidle dur ing his lifetime leads to its proper perpetua tion at the hands of the Masonic fraternity of "Western Pennsylvania. For years Mr. Shidle's keen interest in and great familiarity with all branches of Masonic progress made him an important factor, not only in the growth of the order, but in the scope of its extension in fields of abstruse lore. Aside from his Masonic achievements, Mr. Shidle's personality en deared him especially to his brethren of the level and square. A circular has recently been issued indi cating that there is a strong desire to impart tangible shape to a memorial of Mr. Shidle's worth as a man and a Mason. What form the memorial will assume has not yet been decided upon, but it will be undoubtedly something of a Masonic nature. The appended circular explains itself: THE MEMORIAL COMMISSION. PrrrsBUBQ, August 1, 18S9. To the Members or the Masonic Fraternity in Western l'ennsylvanla: Brethren At ameeting composed of mem bers of the different lodges in this vicinity, held in Freemasons' Hall, June 12, 1889, for the purpose of considering the propriety of secur ing a suitable memorial of our late D. D. G. M., Brother Geter C. Shidle, Brother Stephen C. McCandless was called upon to preside, and Brother John E Haines acted as Secretary, members being present from 19 lodges. After a thorough discussion of the subject, the fol lowing resolution was unanimously adopted: Resolved, That a commission of seven Master Masons be named, to be called the "Geter C. Shidle Memorial Commission," who -Shall be directed to communicate with tbe masters of each lodge in Western Pennsylvania, asking that a popular individual subscription oi si each be taken, with a view of procuring a memorial of our late brother, to be placed in new Freemason's Hall, Pittsburg, or such other place as the commission may determine; and that said commission shall have full control nf such subscriptions and their disposition. Before tlnal action be taken, said commission to report tbe result of such subscriptions at a general meeting to be held at tbe call of the chairman of this meeting, of which duo notice shall be given each lodge which may respond with subscriptions. Brother McCandless appointed the following brethren to serve on said commission: Brother Joseph Eicbbaum, Brother Charles W. Batcbe lor. Brother Thomas J. Hudson. Brother Will lam B. Lupton, Brother Charles C. Baer, Broth er James S. McKean and Brother Lee S. Smith. Tbe above named brethren met and organ ized by the following choice of officers: Broth er Joseph Eichbaum, President; Brother Charles W. Batchelor, Treasurer; Brother Lee S. Smith, Secretary. SUBSCRIPTIONS ASKED FOR. In compliance with tbe object for which this commission has been created, we now ask the secretaries of the different lodges interested, to place this circular in the hands of each member of their respective lodges, and request that they make their subscriptions. direct to their secretaries, and that he keep an accurate list of all contributors, as it is. desired to have a complete list by name and number of lodge, to be deposited as a part of this testimonial memorial. When the secretaries have the subscriptions of their lodges they will forward the amount to Brother Charles W. Batchelor, treasurer, Keystone Bank, 115 Fourth avenue, Pittsburg, and the list of contributors to the secretary of this commission. To tbe members of the craft Brotter Geter C. Shidle needs no introduction, his Masonic work needs no praise orcommcndatlon upon' our part; both are too well known. By the action of the general meeting you will see that the subscription was not left optional as to amounts. This was done because it was thought that all the brethren would wish to contribute, and thus make it a memorial from tbe entire fraternity rather than from a lodge or a few members. And to that end the amount was fixed at $1 for each, so that all might be placed upon the true Masonic prin ciple of equality. An early reply to the Secretary of your lodge will greatly assist in this highly commendable work. Fraternally yours, Joseph Eichbaum, President. Lee S. Smith. Secretary. In response to the above quite a sum of money has been received, and a meeting of the commission will shortly be held to decide upon the character of the memorial. A handsome sculptured wall-tablet is mentioned among other plans, the idea being the embellishment of Freemason's Hall, as well as tbe paying of a tribute to Mr. Shidle's memory. TEARING DOWN THE STACK. A Lightning; Rod Was Placed on It by the Aid of n. Kite. Jones & Laughin yesterday begun work on the demolition of the boiler stack, in the old department of their puddle mill in Brownstown. The stack was one of the first things built by the company, when they located their small mill where the present extensive works now stand. The stack is built of brick, 140 feet high and about 40 feet square at the bottom "When it was erected, there was no provi sion made to put a lightning rod on it. After the scaffolding had been torn down, this mistake was discovered and there ap peared no way to remedy it. An enterpris ing lightning rod agent came along, and undertook to do the work by the aid of a kite. He secured a large "flyer" and at tached a light rope to it. This he ciicled around the top ot the stack until he made it fast. He then attached a larger rope to the small one, and after considerable work also got it up. Finally a block and tackle were hoisted up and by this means, the agent hauled himself to the top. A light scaffolding was begnn and the rod was soon placed in position. The stack will not be rebuilt as the battery of boilers has been discontinued. AN UNNATURAL FAMILY. The Father Heaps Coals of Fire on Their Hcnds by Forgiveness. Theodore Kansingman, aged 85, applied for assistance to reach Cincinnati at the De partment of Charities yesterday. Some five years ago he lived in Spring Garden ave nue, Allegheny, with his family. One day his relatives, consisting of wife, sou, daughter and son-in-law deserted him with out cause or warning, and he could find no reason for the heartless conduct. He sought and obtained admittance to the most disin terestedly charitable of all institutions, that of the Little Sisters of the Poor, where he was kindly treated. He, however, disliked to be an object of charity, and going out into the rural dis trict he hired out to a farmer for SI per week and lodging. During nearly five years he succeeded in saving a little over as many dollars, when lately, hearing that his family was living in Cincinnati, he made the application above referred to in order to get means to see and bid his cruel and unnatural wife and children farewell be fore he seeks rest in death. He was given the assistance asked. To be Formallr Opened. The new fountain situated at the corner of Thirty-ninth and Butler streets will be for mally opened to-morrow evening. John H. Kerr will be the orator ot the evening. A brass band will be in attendance. . Dr. B. M. Hanna. Eye, ear, nose and throat diseases exclusively. Office, 718 Penn street, Pittsburg, Pa. s&Su A CHILD'S PECULIAR J)EATH. The Case nn Extraordinary One in tho Medical Profession Its Joints Ossified . nnd It Ate Very Little. Yesterday afternoon Louisa Rosina Gam per, the 8-months-old daughter of Michael Gamper, of No. 659 Fifth avenue, was buried in the Allegheny Cemetery. The child had been found dead in bed Thursday morning. The death was the result of a peculiar affliction. Up until she was about four months old, the dead child seemed to be unusually healthy. Then it took sick. Dr. Scott was called in and pronounced the illness sum mer complaint. The parents thought some thing else was tbe matter, and called in several other physicians, but the child got no better. Gradually it grew worse. Its skin became, covered with great blotches, which seemed to grow larger each day. The child lost almost all ot its flesh, and its joints grew stiff and appeared to become os sified. Most of the time it lay in a seem ingly comatose condition, with its eyes wide open and staring straight before it. Its pulse could scarcely be felt beating. Once it turned entirely black, then grew white again, and again became colored. Most of the time, the only daily nournishment it took, was about three tablespoonsful of wine. THE FINAL KITES. Arrangements for tho funeral of the Late Captain James Rees. The funeral of the late James Rees is be ing arranged to take place next Sunday afternoon at 250 o'clock.

"W. J. Holland, of the Bcllefield Church. The interment will be strictly private. It was stated that six hired pallbearers and six honorary ones were to be selected, but this was partly a mistake, as those chosen are chiefly workmen in the shops ot the deceased. The pallbearers will be: N.B. Aegley, Henry Hays. Geo. A. Berry, Colonel Wm. Herron, It. C. Loomis, K. S. Smith, B. F. Wilson. Colonel Jas. Collord, Jas. McBnde, Daniel Han j by, Samuel Lewis and Geo. McBrisbin. A FEDERAL UNION. A Body for tbo Settlement of Disputes In Trades' Unions. A federal union of the Federation of Labor has been organized in this city.

QUEENS IN EXILE. JST &?& vHU interest all readers of The Dispatch to morrow with an article under this head. A QUICK OPERATION, How the West Penn Hospital Doctors Act in Cases of Emergency. THERAP1D RUN OP THE AMBULANCE Great Care Exercised to Keep Small Insects Oat of the Wounds. ONE CASE AT EAND0M WITH DETAILS Yesterday the Pennsylvania Railroad Company telephoned the "West Penn Hos pital for an ambulance, stating a boy's leg had been badly crushed by a locomotive. Immediate orders were given to take the wagon to the Twenty-eighth street vard. "When the message was received Superin tendent Cowan asked a Dispatch reporter if he would accompany the ambulance and witness the operation. The reporter ac cepted the offer. One and a half minutes after the driver received his instructions the doctor and re porter were almost flying through the air, at the back of two high-bred Kentucky mules. The accident occurred at the far side of the yard, as approached from Twenty-eighth street. When the scene of the accident was reached just 4 minutes and 60 seconds had elapsed. "While "Walter Stoughtrey, of 3532 Butler street, a messenger boy in the service of the Pennsylvania road, was crossing the track, a locomotive caught his leg and crushed it in a frightful manner. The boy was lifted into the ambulance, and in 3 minutes he was in the surgical ward. From the time the message was received until the boy was in the hospital only 7 minutes and 60 seconds had elapsed. TELEPHONED FOB A SUEdEON. During the time the ambulance was away, the Superintendent had telephoned into the city for a surgeon. Dr. Hamilton immediately responded to the call. The house doctors while waiting for the surgeon put the instruments in readi ness, prepared the various washes and adjusted a small hose to an elevated glass tank full of bi-chloride of mercury from 1,000 to 2,000 per cent in strength1. As soon as Dr.' Hamilton arrived he quietly turned back the blanket, disclosing the boy's leg, and calmly surveyed it. Just below the upper joint of the right leg, a gum band had been tightly adjusted to pre vent a flow of blood. Midway between -the upper and middle joints the flesh had been completely severed and presented a horri ble appearance. The operating surgeon gave orders to administer an anaesthetic, which done, the boy rested as calmly as if in a gentle slumber during the cutting and sawing off of his leg. A QUICK OPEBATIcftr. Tbe doctor performed the work with great dispatch. After the leg was severed from the body the stump was scraped very care fully; the chloride of mercury was kept flowing constantly over the wound to kill any insects that might be drawn by the wound. The doctors hold that the air is full of poisonous germs, which are attracted to a wound where Dlood flows. All the linens and gauze which are used in operations are soaked for 24 hours in bi chloride from 100 to 500 per cent in strength. This is done to prevent the slightest irrita tion after the operation has been performed. The operation of yesterday was performed expeditiously. It took about 30 minutes to cut the leg off, wash the boy and put him to bed. XING TENNIS STILL REIQNS. The Center Avenue Tonrnnmcnt Shows Some Good Sports. The Pittsburg club's1 lawn tennis tourna ment went on merrily yesterday, and the day proved to be even more favorable, in point of weather and attendance, than its predecessor. In the final round of the doubles, which were left unfinished yester day, Christy and "Woods, of Sewickley, beat Reed and Moorhead, of Pittsburg, 1-6, 6-3, 7-5, 10-8.
