PITTSBURG. THDRSDAY. OCT. 31, 18S9. THE DISIBICT ATTORNEYSHIP. About the only local contest to be decided next Tuesday, in -which the public take any interest, is that for the District Attorney ship. The gathering signs make so reason ably clear how this is likely to result that, in the minds of most observers, it is merely the question of the size of the majority rather than of the recipient Judging by the past course of Toters in this county where the direct administration of the courts is concerned, and by individual ex pressions freely made, there is scarcely any room to doubt the election of Johnston, the Democratic nominee, by a very decided majority. As was stated in these columns at the time of his nomination, Hr. Johnston is a capable, active and popular man, well thought of by the bar and by the public. His opponent, Mr. Bowand, on the other hand, is handicapped by such a record as a public officer in the Clerkship of the Courts, nod confronted by so many special antagon isms growing out of the litigation connected therewith, that the prospects are altogether of a rapid dissolving at the polls, of the rela tively small "off year" Bepublican major ity. The single claim, so far advanced on Bowand's behalf, is his undoubtedly excel lent record as a soldier. But that was recog nized and rewarded by his previous election to the Clerkship; and the results of his ad ministration of that office weresoutterly un desirable as to now furnish not only the strongest argument against his present can didacybut one that should be entirely sufficient With this disqualification on record, and -with the justly pronounced feeling on the subject, it is not worth while going into the question of the relative abilities of Johnston and Bowand as lawyers. In that lespect, not less than in the other, the ad vantages are wholly with the Democratic nominee, whose entire ability to discharge effectually the duties of the office is un doubted. The contest, nnder the circumstances, promises to be rather ore-sided. If the usual Democratic vote is cast for Johnston, it is fairly certain that more than enough Bepublicans will back it up to make his calling and election sure. The question of choice, under the circumstances of the con test, does sot call for serious argument A CHECK TO ENTHUSIASM. The stern hand of the police is to be laid upon the hotel hustlers at the Union depot who seize upon unwary travelers and bear them off to houses of entertainment by force and arms. If the hotel drummers collar the way farers, the police will collar the drum mers, and the fare which the latter receive at the hands of the city will not be much better than that which their victims obtain. This may seem a harsh interference with an enthusiastic, though unnecessary, industry; but upon examination it proves to be a strict realization ot the Mikado's great idea of making the punishment fit the crime. With this rule enforced the hotel runners can find a vent for the enthusiasm within the portals of their houses of entertainment, and the traveler can reach the business cen ter of Pittsburg without fear of bodily ab duction. AN TJHPBOVIDED PBECATJTIOK. The responsibility for the accident to the limited express on the Ft Wayne road yes terday, which cost one life and was a very narrow escape from wholesale slaughter, seems a matter of dispute. It is not the province of The Dispatch to settle the disputed point; but it is pertinent to poi-t out that the accident is of a sort that the block system in use on the main line of the Pennsylvania Bailroad -would have pre vented. The degree of safety secured by this device on the line to the east of Pitts burg has often been referred to in these col umns. It is no more than just to point out that the extension of the same precautions to the western lines operated by the Penn sylvania Company would have prevented yesterday's collision. Of course there are a large number of excuses lor the absence of the block system; but the fact, as stated, seems to locate an ultimate responsibility pretty high up. IBB CLAIMS OP THE CAPITAL. In another column is an earnest but well tempered criticism of Pittsburg's Chamber of Commerce lor favoring Washington for the World's Fair, and The Dispatch for j? WMUg wv Doujs vicn. .uh m a uuv-oucll, $ r" however, it amounts to no more than this. viz: that Chicago has raised a $5,000,000 '" subscription and has hotel accommodations, while Washington will have to rely upon the Government, and cannot now give roof- " shelter even to those who attend inaugura- -. lions. There is, it is true, a third objection raised by our correspondent to the effect that Washington is not a "typical" Ameri can city; but that depends so entirely upon the point from which it is viewed as to need no serious consideration. The United States is a big country, with many and strik ing differences in the characteristics of dif ferent communities, and it would be uncom monly hard to find one place typical ot all. Washington is politically the representative i city of the land; it is also the most beautiful city. Tbe reasons which induced the expressions fjflrbm Pittsburg in favor of Washington promise to be fully justified as events de- rjf ji -K--v.i- j rz . vtg ti,:"'lJ- "" . u viuicagu are engaged I '-. .inijv desnerale nvalrr nhimon ? mnet J&A'sciive and clamorous, but New Yorkers jfcave set their minds on the fair jnstas (earnestly. We near a great deal of "sub scriptions" from both places, but the amount cney actually put up is very small at either place, compared with the promises. That there is a large probability of Congress being asked for an appropnatioo to help out will scarcely be disputed. If Congres sional recognition and assistance are sought or extended, why should the capital of the nation be overlooked? If the World's Pair is to be a national event, why not have it at the nation's capital, directly under Govern ment auspices? Even as to the money part, the people of "Washington nave made a really more substantial and business-like proposal than either of the bigger cities. They ask the Government to guarantee 510,000,000 of bonds for the District, the same to be met by taxes on the property of the District If there are no legal impediments, this would procure money very quickly, and if there was a deficiency in the proceeds of the Ex position the charge would fall-but lightly on the property and people benefited. As to accommodations for the public, who doubts that American enterprise would swiftly aud abundantly supply them? In respect to the site, also, Washington offers the most handsome and commodious grounds anywhere suggested. Of course both Chicago and New York are bigger cities. They can show ten times more of the activities of commerce in actual motion than Washington. But all foreign ers who come to the Exposition will see New York anyhow, and most of them will doubtless see Chicago. At Washington they will see besides the seat of government of the country, the magnificent public buildings, beautiful grounds, historical me mentoes and many other objects of interna tional interest which cannot be seen else where. In short, Washington has already the material for an exposition in itself which could not fail to be an attractive supplement to the Fair. And considering everything it is probable that as great, if not indeed a greater, number of citzens of the United States would visit Washington to see the exposition than would go to Chicago for that purpose. All the noise so far has been made for New York or Chicago. But it has been made by the localities directly interested. Though little has been done for Washington we incline to believe that the longer the matter is canvassed the more strongly will the drift set toward the national capital. TWO BETUBNING HEROES. The statement of Dr. Schweinfurth that letters have been received from Emin Pasha which justify the expectation that Emin and Henry M. Stanley will soon ar rive at the Zanzibar coast, practically sets at rest all donbts as to the final success of Stanley's last, and one of his greatest, achievements. The explorer's successful march from the upper Congo to the equa torial province, his return to his starting point, and the second march to the Eastern coast, are only surpassed in determina tion, difficulty and great results by his ex ploration in a reverse direction from the Eastern coast ending with the discovery and descent of the then unknown Congo. There is another feature of the return of Stanley from the heart of Africa, in the fact that he is accompanied by Emin, which gives the matter an especial interest The association and companionship of the dar ing and successful explorer, with the pa tient Governor of the Equatorial Province, who upheld the standard of civilization in the center of Africa for years after Gordon lost his life at Khartoum, furnishes a strik ing parallel to Stanley's first association with and aid to Dr. Livingstone. As Stanley's earliest achievement in Africa was the searching out and relief of the ex plorer who had spent his life in the Dark Continent, there is a peculiar and striking fitness in the termination of his wonderful African career by the relief and rescue of another man who is the last to abandon his post at the head of the Nile. There are hardly two living men who can command a more world-wide and disinter ested admiration than Stanley and Emin when they return. Their fame has been well-earned, and Europe and America will unite in doing them honor. THE DAK0TAS HEED. The latest intelligence, to the effect that the number of people left destitute and in danger of starving by the failure of crops in North and South Dakotas is in the vicinity of 100,000, shows the necessity of prompt measures to prevent the most terrible suffer ing. It seems strange that in a -year when the general condition is that of abundance, so many people in the grain-raising States can be suffering for the lack of food; but the reports leave little doubt, and the fact may be taken as an indication of the vast extent of the grain raising territory, so that one section may suffer from calamity in the midst of general abundance. Of course the philanthropic people of the nation should be prompt to respond to the call for aid. These famine-stricken people are the pioneers of industry, the leaders in the work of production which creates the national wealth. If aided to tide over their present necessity they will in the fnture fur nish large additions to the general prosper ity, and swell the total that is the founda tion of all our wealth. But beyond that, the need of sufiering humanity has never been neglected in this country. Whatever our faults, we will not let people starve to death in our land, so long as the rest of the country has a surplus. Now that the emer gency is known the country will contribute abundantly to the need of the Dakota suf ferers. BUSINESS TBIPS FOB MONAECHS. The anxiety of the Czar, over the visit of the Emperor of Germany to Constantinople, which has resulted in arranging for a visit of his own next spring, does not look very much as if the late visit of the imperial majesties at Berlin had left a serene confi dence in the Muscovite mind as to the utter inocuousness of the German intentions. Alexander cannot trust William to 'confine himself to seeing the elephant at the Golden Horn, or viewing the Mussulman harems from the outside, but must hasten to the seat of the ancient Greek Empire himself to make sure that no mischievous German influence has been established. It is much better for the crowned beads of Europe to visit each others' capitals on errands of this sort than to march there at the head of armies to burn aud slaughter; but it must be said that the king business is approaching a rather undignified similarity to the methods of the commercial travelers. An enterprising drummer, who hears that a rival is getting away the trade which he considers his own in a certain district, does not pack up his samples and start to the scene of action more energetically than Alexander and William. Whether the European monarchs can discipline their Ottoman customer as energetically as the somewhat imperious Standard Oil agents have done with merchants who have dealt with obnoxious rivals, remains to he Seen; but if so the Commander of the Faithful is not likely to enjoy the presence of his Im perial guests. Whether the Emperors can be satisfied with keeping a check on each other by journeys and visits, or will have in the end to fall to blows, is the question which keeps Europe in a state of nervous irritation. A EOYAL BEPOBTEB. There was a line or two in the news cabled from Europe yesterday which will be sure to cause a flutter in the editorial dovecots of New York, It is said that the Archduke John Salvator, of Austria, who has resigned from his high offices in that Empire for rea sons highly creditable to himself, will very soon join the staff of a New York paper. The name of the fortunate journal is not given. It may be that the pious Colonel Elliott F. Shepard has secured His Boyal Highness. The conductor of the only sport ing and religious paper in the world is quite equal to such a stroke of enterprise. Colonel Shepard is just the man to know how much a spicy account, of a church wedding written in Austrian would be appreciated by the erudite Fifth avenue readers of his paper. Probably the Austrian prince is a good judge of horseflesh, and Colonel Shepard could make him horse reporter and wedding editor with large hopes of unique results. Or the Archduke John might be given a seat iu the counting room window, with a placard setting forth his rank. A nice revenue might be made by renting him out to the "Four Hundred" at so much per night in the capacity of society reporter. If Colonel Shepard has not se cured the Archducal treasure he ought to spare no pains or expense to do so. But if Colonel Shepard has not and will not employ the Austrian, the New York Herald should make him an offer. An editorial in Austrian now and again would he a pleasant relief to the Herald's readers. The claim of ownership of an alleged $2,000,000 patent for the escape of gas from natural gas mains, as reported in our local columns, may result in the discovery that the valuation of this patent is slightly in flated, both in this case and in the price at which it was capitalized in the Philadelphia Company. Still the patent is worth enongh to make the claimant ery comfortable -with the large-sized proviso that he can make good his claim. Once more the public attention is called to the fact that nnder Pennsylvania rulings, if a man wishes to kill another and escape hanging, he must get drunk enongh before committing the murder, to render premedi tation impossible. The advent of yellow fever at Key West at this season of the year, shows that Yellow Jack is so much behind time that he will be promptly frost-bitten. The health authorities on the Southern coasts appear to have the quarantine regulations under such control that further epidemics need not be feared until the quarantine people be come negligent While the politicians struggle as if the destinies of the country depended on their success, the actual business of the country moves forward with a serene disregard as to which set of wire-pullers gets the offices. It is suggestive that the New York Herald's headlines of Sunday referring to the World's Fair subscription, enthusiasti cally declare, "if any Bich Hen to be Heard From." With another week half past it still remains what to New Yorkers may be considered an encouraging fact, or other wise, that many rich men are still to be heard from. New Jeesey's private divorce system is now getting a salutary amount of ventila tion. The light is likely to 'strike in on Pennsylvania's method of trying the cases in secret before the inquiry is ended. Pbesident Cabnot, who has not half the work to do that attaches to the Presi dency of the United States, gets a salary of $120,000, while the President of this great nation gets $50,000. Yet there are plenty of people in this country who are willing to take the office and worry along on the smaller sum. If the Ohio election should go Bepublican' next week, some of those high and mighty Senators will begin to see where they made their mistake in not letting Murat Hal stead go to Bussia. Wnrxc Belgian plate glass works and German gun foundries are moving toward Pittsburg from one direction, Pittsburg is sending electric lights to illuminate the capital of China in the other direction. The light of Pittsburg is destined to shine throughout the oldest empires of the world. If ex-Secretary Bayard is not married next week, he will be suspected of an attack on the liberty of the press to marry him whenever the correspondents see fit to start the rumor. The Electric Light Trust is one of the combinations expected to arise out of the multitudinous patent suits. At present, the only trust in connection with the busi ness, is the trust in Providence which peo ple have to exercise when they go in the vicinity of loose electric light wires. The preparation of plans for the great North Eiver bridge by a Pittsburg inventor is one of the local achievements on which Pittsburg may have an opportunity to plume herself. Mb. Moody in a recent sermon declared that those who played progressive euchre cannot hope to go to heaven. Mr. Moody evidently does not believe in the doctrine of atonement on this earth, or the sufferings of the progressive euchre players might lead to another conclusion. The railroad wreck epidemic is now rag ing in full force. Four were reported yes terday with the back districts and sub sidiary lines still to be heard from. The announcement of prize fights ar ranged to take place in this vicinity should put the officers of the law on the alert, to arrest and send to the workhouse, not only the principals, bnt the high-toned specta tors whose money is the incentive for those brutal exhibitions. The resurrection of A. Oakey Hall in the character of a novel writer should also re suscitate Tom Nast and give his productions some life once more. Now that President Harrison has ap pointed a brother of Judge Gresham to a postofflce out in Minnesota, it may be hoped that the principle of proceeding on family lines may lead to the appointment of the more popular member of the family to the Supreme Bench. Honor for ttoswcll. From the New York Commercial Advertiser. Governor Hill will settle a much-mooted question by appointingBoswell P. onr national Flower. For the Information of the public we may say that B. P.'s friends regard him as a daisy. I IDE TOPICAL IAIKBB. Horses of Queer Character Flock to the Livery Stables Two Canning Ponies Trlali of Managers With Juvenile fiinrs. Just as every man who falls at all the other professions is pretty sure to conclude that his calling is journalism, so every horso who, by eccentrio character or blemished phystqueJias shut the stable doors of society against him winds up in the stalls of a liveryman. That's as it seems to me. Through no fault of my own, as far as taste and desire go, most ot my riding and driving has been done with the as sistance sometimes nominal of hired eq nines. Avery celebrated horseman once boasted in my hearing that be considered the study of horses more edifying than the study of man. It struck me at the time that the speaker bad not come In contact with many livery stable horses. Acquaintance with the noble beast under the latter conditions may tie interesting ana too often exciting, but not edifying. But I do not want to catalogne all the vicious, criminal, curious and hypocritical quadrupeds of the equine race that I have met Merely an instance of a local character. . It was not my f ortuno to be taking the air on that bright day last month In a neat donble wagon behind a conple of glossy bay ponies, when two yonng ladies of this city drove cheer fully away for a morning's drive through some of our lovely suburban country. Theponles had come from a livery stable with a character for mora gentleness and sweetness of disposi tion than even hired animals can usually com mand. They bore out their character during the first half hour. The ladies in the wagon were just beginning .to enjoy the drive im mensely. It was about three miles from home. Suddenly, without the least warning, at a place where the road was conveniently broad, the two ponies executed a wheeling movement which ended in a turn to the left about, in spite of all the efforts of the fair driver to stop them. There was some struggle for the supremacy, but the ponies lasted longest, and, to cut the story short, they trotted home at a rattling pace. They turned neither to tho Tight hand nor to the left, but went direct to the livery stable. The liveryman stood at the door and listened to the charge against the ponies. Then he said apologetically: "Yes them ponies is that fond of home that they will try and come back whenever they git a show." . Tub manager of the "Little Lord Fauntle roy" Company, which was in this city last week, deserves a good deal more sympathy and downright pity than he is likely to get. The two juvenile stars. Tommy Russell and Bay UaskeU, are harder to manage than they could be if they were grown up. It is not ex actly the children either, but their mothers, who travel with them. These 'good matrons have an eye upon the manager constantly from their hostile camps. Each one suspects the manager of showing the other woman's child unfair favor. He has to apportion his atten tions in equal shares between them, or trouble is In store for him. This is the harder to do because each mother is everlastingly trying to securesome emphatic manifestation in the news papers, on the bills, at the theater, the hotels and even on 1he ears, of the superior claims of her child. The manager has to head oft all these attempts without bringing on a general engagement Of course he cannot succeed al ways. A good many people asked, when these chil dren were showing such remarkable ability as actors here last week, what their future was likely to be. The general rule seems to be that a child who shows precocious genius upon the stage very seldom amounts to anything as an actor when arrived at maturity. There are dozens of great actors who went on the stage before they could walk almost But you will find that they did not make any phenomenal success In the infan tile roles. PEOPLE OF PROMINENCE. Edwabs A Freeman, the English historian, is short but stout and robust Like most En glishmen, be has a well-fed, roast beef eating appearance. He wearB a long, white patriarchal beard. He has a son married and settled in Virginia, and he is very proud of bis American grandchildren. Fbank B. Stockton has had a great deal of cheap fun poked at him for being," rising young man of letters at the age of 53." But it should be remembered that he had served a long and laborious apprenticeship to literature before he surprised the world with his fresh and original story, "The Lady or the Tiger." Montgoxebt Seabs, who is one of the richest men of Boston, and lives in an American palace, is the son of a grocer, who lived on naif a dollar a day and slept in the store. He made money and saved it following the wise advice of Franklin, that "penny saved is a penny gained." That is the sure road to wealth, but it is a bard road to travel. Geoboe William Curtis is described as "a bland gentleman with a clerical appearance, - and looking as though he ought to part his hair in the middle." He stands 5 feet 10, wears En, glish whiskers, and darkish light locks shade a" handsome face. For 28 years he has been the literary adviser of Messrs. Harper & Brothers, receiving the splendid salary of $25,000 a year. Colonel Jebome Napoleon Bonapabte, the grandnophew of the creafNapoleon and the granason of the famous beanty. Madam Bonaparte, of Baltimore, wonld make an ad mirable leader for the Bonapartes in France. Napoleon said he found tho crown of France on the ground, and he picked it up with his sword. Colonel Bonaparte may do the same. Stranger things have happened in France. JOHN S. Shbtveb, who wrote "Almost a Novel" last year, is under literary training fora complete novel, as' scissorsman on the Balti more American. He is a blond youth of 23 summers, who has made a hurried visit to Europe with bis pa, who is rich, and It was said that the old gentleman paid his salary on tho American In order to cultivate the latent genius of his promising son. Chables F. Gcnthee, of Chicago, the mil lionaire confectioner, has the largest collection of autographs in the United States. Among the choicest are a poem of Keats, a letter of- Edgar A Poe, verses by Louise M. Alcott, Paul H. Hayne, William Gilraore Simms, etc. Among his curios are the early edition of Shakespeare, with the reputed autograph of the immortal bard, the musket carried by Chief Justice Taney at the battle of North Point, In 1611, and a letter on satin, written by Henry Clay in 1812. Matjiuce Thompson, who has recently been made the lltertary editor qf the lndepcnaent, has fought his way to literary success by sheer perseverance. Tho close of the Civil War fonnd him stranded high and dry in the little town of Calhoun, Ga. Finding there was noth ing for him to do in that remote place he made his way to the North and settled at Crawfords ville, Ind,, where he studied law, bnt he did not give up his first love, literature. He wrote stories, essays, poems, criticism, everything, and baying proved that he was a capable writer, he has been rewarded Dy a good position. STAGE NOTES. Those ever popular comedians, Evans and Hoey, will ignite their evergreen success, "A Parlor Match," at the Bijou, on Monday even ing, for one week. Charles E. Evans and Will iam Hoey are the stars of the farce comedy, and one of the secrets of their success lies in the fact that instead of coming round season after season with the same old specialties, they manage to Invent something new. Theater goers have not been long in discovering that tact and when "A Parlor Match" is announced they expect to see something new, and never suffer disappointment Such Is the case this season. Everything that is new and novel has been introduced into the Match since last seen here, and the company thO'Strongest they have ever presented here.

General Miles recommends: That enlistment be made for three years instead of five; that the enlisted men asfar as possible be permitted to select the divisions in which they shall serve; that men found qualified after years' service be commissioned second lieutenants, and it there be no vacancies for them that they receive honorable discharges; tbat the three-battalion organization adopted in Europe for the infantry be adopted by the United States, giving promotion to over SO officers, and that tor 15 years' continuous service in the same tank an officer shall be promoted one grade. on tncsuDjectoi facme coast defenses ho says it would require 673 modern guns and mortars to pnt the coast in proper condition, the cost of which would be over $30,000,000. Plants for manufacturing the gun should be established on the Pacific coast. To this end the General recommends one appropriation of 3250000to secure the titles to strategic points necessary to be occupied for defense; another of SL000, 000 to establish a -plant for construction of modern guns and ammunition, and a thlra ot 25,000,000, or as mnch as can be expended in four j ears for providing guns and material required on the coast This may seem like a large sum but the General calls attention to the fact that in the mint at San Francisco there He $21,000, 000 silver dollars alone, piled up as a tempta tion to any third rate naval power to plunder the coast.

To the Editor or The Dispatch: There are some things- hard to understand, and one of them is the hostility of Pittsburg's Chamber of Commerce and of The Dispatch to Chicago as the site of the World's Pair. It is natural that New York should be the first choice of Pittsburg; but now that New York, by her apathy, is about out of the race, I was surprised the other day to note that The Dis patch now favors the city of Washington. Between the two cities, Chicago and Washing ton, as proper sites for the fair, X can see no possible comparison. Chicago has all the ad vantage; Washington all the disadvantage. True, Washington is the capital of the country; but irr America capitals go for nothing except as places for political business. One may "g to London to see tho Queen," but he need not go to Washington to see the President He can see one ot them up in Fremont O., and another in a lawyer's office In New York. The ciaim or Washington for the lair, simply be cause it is tho national capital, is. to my mind, a piece of monarchical mimicry.. The fact that Washington Is the canltal of thn tottnn and hence the seat of foreign legations, is an argu ment against the city as a fair site, f or it is J ost so far an un-American city. I do not think that Americans, as a rule, are at all proud of the pomposity of Washington society; and to have foreign visitors impressed with the idea that it is a type of American life would be a gross injustice. Even New York is" scarcely an American city, as I know from six years residence there, mnch less Washington. But from an intimate personal acquaintance with Chicago, I believe it to be as near a per fect type of an American city as our large cities furnish. Place Pittsburg alongside of New York, Washington and Chicago, and I can tell you that Pittsburg and Chicago would assimilate like two drops of water. I cannot keep still when I see the claims of Chicago quietly set aside by Pittsburg in the face of her $5,000,000 subscription and her unparalleled accommodations, in favor of a city which made thousands of people sleep in the rain at a merely ordinary event of a national celebra tion, and which would throw the whole cost of the fair upon the Government Boom Pittsburg as a site for the fair, and I am with you. .Next to Pittsburg, Chicago; but Washington! erbsatsap. J. D.Hebeos. New Castle, October U He Enters a Demurrer. To the Editor of The Dispatch: I noticed in an evening paper on Monday that the Health Committee is going to ask councils to pass an ordinance to regulate the disposal of garbage; that is, to compel me to place my garbage out on the front sidewalk, so that a company composed of the said Health Committee (which, of course, will get the con tract for removing it) can get it 1 do not know how much it will cost to rather tin this ntnfr. but would suppose It could not be done for less than $50,000 or $75,000. And who is to pay for itt I and every other citizen, of course; the poor laboring man as well as the millionaire: for of course this must be paid for out of the city treasury. i am not a pessimist but am in favor of any satisfactory measure that shall be adopted for the health of the city; bnt I am opposed to being taxed to keep up a lot of schemers and jobbers around City HalL. We can burn onr garbage, and I don't see why others cannot do the same thing; I hope our Councilmen will see through the scheme in time-to prevent such Jobbing. A CITIZEN. PlTTSBUBO, October 30, 1889. Not the First Priest There. To the Editor of The Dispatch. 1 In your edition of to-day you publish, under the caption "APriestatTarentum," an article of news, which seems to convey the idea tbat xuere never has been a priest at Tarentnm be fore the advent of the recently appointed pastor, Rev. L Otten, C. a Sf. St Peter's Church, Tarentnm, was dedicated on the 9th of October, 1887, with Bev. Father Alphonso H.FarinI as pastor, by appointment ofBt Rev. Bishop Phelan, at which dedication a re porter published a very complimentary notice. Under the able management ot Father Fannl, the parish has become uno of the foremost of the diocese, the reverend father being not only an able administrator, but also a linguist ac quainted with seven different languages. The high testimonial paid to Rav. Fatner Otten is eminently just, and Father Farini congratu lates not only himself, but also the priest of Tarentnm, that so able a successor has been found in the person of Bev. Father Otten, whose piety, learning and zeal are household words wherever he Is Known- AdhehdUX. Tarentum, October 30, 1SS9. A Street In Bad Condition. To the Editor of The Dispatch: In your issue of October 28 you call attention to tn filthy condition of Bioomfleld. Please do not overlook Butler street as it is filthy from one end to the other. It has not been washed for nearly two years. It has not been cleaned but once, I think, inside 18 months; then only cone over by a few decrepit old men with scrapers. The Citizens' Traction Com pany, every once in awhile, clean out their con doit and deposit the filth on the street, and sometimes do not remove it but leave it to be carried here and there by the wagon travel, etc. I don't think there is any reason to doubt that the prevalence of typhoid and scarlet fevers, diphtheria and other diseases is traceable to the filthy condition of our streets. Will you kindly call attention to this street and oblige Manx Readers. Pittsbubo, October 30. Two Yonng Folks In a Dilemma.

D. If the father won't yield you will probably have to wait But if your future mother-in-law has the influence with the family adminis tration tbat women usually have, there is still hope for you. Ton cannot get married in Ohio without a license, and presumably the consent ot the parents is necessary to procure one In that State as well as in Pennsylvania. Chinamen as Citizens.

The Castle Garden people have bees pretty high and mighty of late, and have admitted oz sent back immigrants suspected of being con tract laborers with little regard for the opin ions of their official superiors. Some days ago a German laborer, Dietz, supposed td be under contract arrived on the steamship Wisconsin. The Cast! Garden officials said bo must go back. Collector Erbadt said he must stay. Poor Dietz led a battledore and shuttlecock existence for several days, and the Castle Gar den authorities tried to put him aboard the Wisconsin, but he stuck fast in Mr.Erbardt's customhouse. There was a big kick at Castle Garden, and Dietz was dragged into court Tho Judge told him be could stay here, but by this time the German was so fuddled tbat he al lowed the Castle Garden people to capture him before be got two blocks away from the court, and to carry him off to Castle Garden again. This morning they tried to smuggle him on board a trans-Atlantic steamship, bnt he got collared in the custom house once more. Col. lector Erhardt has taken Dietz under his care and threatens to maka it hot for the Castle Garden officials- Broken In Mind and Body.

He at once fell in lova with Annie, and married her with her mother's consent He loved her so much that he thought he could be happy wit h her on H a week and bis prospects.
