PITTSBURG. WEDNESDAY, NOV. 6, 1SS9. PITTSBUBG'S GUESTS. This afternoon the Iron City of the Sew "World Trill extend its welcome to the repre sentatives of the various nations of the "Western Hemisphere. No guests whom Pittsburg has entertained for years have commanded a warmer greeting tkan these do; and if we do not make their 6tay inter esting it will he from shortcomings in the means rather than from any failure in the spirit. The interest of Pittsburg in her visitors is not alone the desire to show them how they can be benefited as customers for our pro ducts; but it is deeper than that in the idea which they represent. They come here as representatives ot the idea of furthering the commercial independence of the New "World from the Old, just as the political independ ence n as secured in the early part ot the century. Pittsburg is no less a center of this idea of commercial independence than she is the center of the iron, steel and glass industries of this hemisphere. For the entertainment of our visitors the usual receptions and dinners are provided, aud the Industrial Exposition has been put in striking guise. But when these have been fally viewed during the two days' stay ofthe delegates we question if anymore strik ing or unique exposition can be found on this continent than the inspection of Pittsburg herself. Our city, crowding the valleys and overflowing the hills; our miles of mills, foundries and glassworks; the wealth of natural gas and coal fuel which has created the great manufacturing community, and the system of railway and river transporta tion by which our products are sent abroad all these the delegates must see; and then they will comprehend what Pittsburg means. "With the hope that her sights will interest and please her visitors, Pittsburg stands ready to extend her greeting to the assem bled representatives of the three Americas. EXPOSURE AS AN OFFENSE. One of the peculiar features of the cam paign just closed was the indignation which was aroused among the "Maryland De mocracy by the act of J. K. Cowen, the leader ofthe Beform Democrats, inbringinc on the stage before a great audience two notorious scoundrels, who there confessed the criminal acts which they had committed in the interest and under the pay of the Democratic ring. The idea of producing such degraded characters, and exposing their corrupt acts in public, was a great chock to the tendersusceptibilities of the sup porters of Gorman and Higgins. Such things should be kept secret. The men who use criminal means to maintain their power are all right if they do it on the sly. But to boldly and baldly show up these things in the sunlight of publicity is calcu lated to bring the blush to the cheek of the youngpersons whom the Veneerings of Mary land Democracy have under guardianship, and must not be allowed. This toleration of corruption in secret, and horror at its ex posure, exhibits a remarkable quality of hypocrisy. INFLUENCE OF TEE SCHENLEY GLFI. The abundant generosity of "Mrs. Schenley in donating not merely 300 acres of land in the heart of Pittsburg for a park, but in co temporaneously therewith offering ten acres as a site for an institution for the blind evi dently touches all classes in this city very deeply. These gifts are the greatest ever bestowed by a single individual upon Pitts burg. They are a testimony of pride in the place and of interest in its welfare which contrast all the more splendidly with the unaccountable and almost incredible nar rowness of those persons who are mentioned in the reports of "Mr. Carnahan's mission as going to the gratuitous trouble of advising lira. Schenley against this most welcome and munificent display of thoughtful con sideration for our town. No more enduring memento of this gen erous transaction can be devised than will be found in Schenley Park itself and in the public appreciation of this much-needed ad dition to the attractions of Pittsburg. Not merely for its own immediate value is the gift to be esteemed, hut for the example which it sets to other people of treat wealth to contribute in some similar manner to the general welfare. Mr. Carnegie has already shown such a spirit The most precious possession left by the late "William Thaw is the public memory of his unfailing liber ality where any good cause was concerned. Such examples of philanthropic purpose and action have an influence for good that is untold and incalculable. If our city has not hitherto had so many of them as some other places have been favored with, there is at least the satisfaction of the more gen eral and intense appreciation when such striking and substantial evidences of good will are experienced hereabouts. U0BE IMPOSING THAN NECESSARY. The elaborate scheme which a gentleman kindly contributes to The Dispatch's local columns for the formation of a Pan American Company of $25,000,000 capital, with banking, transportation and commer cial departments, contains a slight sugges tion of the policy of the monarch who built a magnificent city with wharves, pavements, opera houses, government buildings, parks and lights, but forgot to provide a population. This plan puts all the machinery of trade on paper; but it pays no attention to the all important question what the trade shall be. The machinery of trade is necessary no doubt; but when it is found out what of 'our products the South Americans want, ;'and we can furnish cheaper than "Europe, 'the banking, transportation and commercial Agencies will promptly spring up. If Tie j VI can show our guests to-morrow that Pitts burg can sell them glass, machinery or any thing else, it will not be necessary to organize any $25,000,000 companies to get the goods delivered. vt-trti up EESULTS. The elections yesterday, while not Involv ing any vital positions in national politics, outside of Ohio and Virginia, were a good deal split up, and appear to have been, in general, closely contested. "While the re sults cannot at this writing be exactly pre dicted in any of the close contests, it looks very much as if the Democrats have carried off the honors ofthe battle field. On the Pennsylvania State ticket the re result was such a foregone conclusion that very little attention will be paid to the re turns. In Ohio where the battle was a hard fought one, the result is unquestionably close. The indications are rather against Foraker, with a possibility that some ot the "Republican ticket may be elected, while the "Legislature is in doubt. Virginia is prob ably Democratic, and New Jersey has elected Abbett New York seems to have stood by the Democracy and the ceiling scandal. In the local contest the cutting of tickets was somewhat phenomenal. As The Dis patch predicted on the one contest which attracted public attention, the victory of Johnston is only a question of majority. "Whether he gets 5.000 or 10,000 majority, the significance of the election is the same. It is not necessary to refer at length to the causes which produced this reversal of the Republican nominations; but the moral is worth setting down. It is that however the machinery of politics may be induced to ignore a bad record, the voters of Allegheny county are not ready to shut their eyes and let partisanship foist a bad official on them in preference to a good one, especially where the administration of justice is involved. The bearing of yesterday s election upon national politics may not be vital, but it is significant; and the inference from the re turns, so far as received, can hardly be very pleasant to the national administration. THE REVISION OF CREEPS. The very laree vote by which the New York Presbyterians voted in favor of a re vision of the Confession of Faith, will take the character of a surprise to the greater part of the country. That a good many Presbyterians of this day were not disposed to insist on such old and supposed to be cardinal doctrines as predestination and in fant damnation, was generally understood; but that four-fifths of the clergy in the chief city ofthe land were ready to vote for a revi sion, shows that a quiet revolution has been going on which has carried most ofthe sup posed advocates of the old Presbyterianism some distance from its leading tenets. The motion for revision is not likely to prevail in the National General Assembly without much opposition. In one view there seems to be reasonable ground for opposition. Leaving out of the question the acceptability of the doctrines of repro bation and predestination, or whatever those may be that the reformers would amend, there is no doubt that they repre sent the standards of historic Presbyterian ism. Are not those who still hold to these dogmas entitled to the name and organiza tion of the church which has represented them tor three centuries ? Is not the proper course for those who have become convinced that these doctrinal standards are erroneous, to leave the Presbyterian Church and organize a new and reformed chnrch of their own ? The tendency toward freedom of thought and loosening of creeds is not an unfavor able one; but it is hardly just to forget that those who wish to stick to the old blue doc trines will be harshly treated if they are left without a creed of their own to stand by. A SHAKE OF THE P0BE. A recent letter from Senator Ingalls on the trust combinations, written by Senator Ingalls, of Kansas, shows that the talented Senator has eminently correct principles on the subject of combinations to raise the price ofthe necessaries of life; but deems it highly inconvenient to put them into operation. Every combination of that sort he declares to be a crime against society which should be punished with heavy penalties, and the Senator enters into specifications very perti nently as follows: Among the most villainous of these schemes of corporate larceny is the Sugar Trust Sugar is one of the necessaries of life, like salt or air and water. The thieves and robbers who have got control of the market, and put up the price, ought to l)e sent to the penitentiary for life. Sugar should be free in order to make such combinations impossible. So far the Senator takes the most advanced ground in favor ofthe rights of the common people. But the example of the old citizen who was in favor of prohibition, but "agin its enforcement" is too strong for him. He recognizes the principle, and denounces the violation of it in the strongest terms, and then adds to the last sentence of the above extract: "But free sugar would destroy the sorghum industry of Kansas, by subjecting it to competition which it cannot endure." In other words, the Senator recognizes that the purpose of the Sugar Trust is robbery deserving of the severest punishment, and that the protection of the public from rob bery can be seenred by repealing the sugar duties. But he is ready to condone the crime, and let the robbery continue, because the measure which would stop it would pre vent Kansas from getting its share of the swag. That the Kansas industry could be encouraged by a bounty on raw sugar, with out a partnership in the crime, makes no difference to the Senator, because that would be a departure from the recognized methods. To this complexion has the science of political log-rolling brought our public men at last PHYSIC FOE BUTTONS. The latest British syndicate that has flopped into view has a most benevolent ob ject It has been organized to acquire the principal patent medicines made in this country. The immediate object of the Brit ishers is, of course, to make money, to get a safe investment for their idle millions, as they are justified in believing the proprie tary rights to these medicines to be. In fact, they are after boodle, and have no idea that they may confer a blessing upon the United States. The benevolence is there, though it may not be visible to the British eye. It is the intention of the syndicate after it has pur chased these medicines to manage the sale thereof themselves. That is to say the medicines will soon be known as Brit ish goods. Then before very long some political speaker hard up for ammunition will accuse some opponent of using British pills and potions. Of course an anti-British-medicine party will gather around the intelligent defender of native stomachs, and it will become as dangerous for a public man to buy a bottle or a box of the British syndicate's stuff as to write confidential letters to naturalized citizens. But where does the benefit to the Ameri can people come in ? Enough, surely, in the diminution ofthe use of patent cure-alls. VJ:.s K&;&f? The mortality ot the nation will be nothing like as great as it is now if the British syn dicate succeeds in making a number of patent medicines unpopular. It is important to the United. States to learn that expert opinion is discovering that it costs $1,200 to file the big 100-ton guns a single time, and that less than a hundred shots incapacitates the gun from further service. It is also coming out that the monster ironclads and monster guns of the period are so costly as to surpass the proverbial quality of the King ot Prussia's grenadiers in being too expensive to use in actual warfare. The declaration by the New York Mail and Express that "everybody will be glad that the burning of the Tabernacle did not interfere with Dr. Talmage's trip abroad," is an illustration of the good Colonel Shep ard's idea of a compliment It is rather pleasant to learn from the personal gossip ofthe Philadelphia Inquirer, that "the owner of a fleet of steamboats ply ing on the Monongahela, Allegheny and Pittsburg rivers," has been visiting that city. The discovery of a 'fleet of steamers plying on the Allegheny river, would interest this city; but a still more interest ing discovery is that ot "the Pittsburg river." Two uninterrupted days of sunshine seem to have been about as large a supply of pleasant weather as can be had at this season. It was a too brief Indian summer. A New Yoek: thief, in attempting to es cape last week, jumped from an elevated train and fell into a tangle of electric wires which did not shock him at all. If any thing can convict the electric wires of utter depravity it is the persistency with which they refuse to kill criminals and the deadli nes with which they attack honest men and useful animals. The number of electric light patents which are being proved by suits to be in capable of sustaining a monopoly, is no less gratifying than surprising. English statistics report that England will have to import 147,000,000 bushels of wheat The United States has that amount to sell and will sell it to Europe if our speculators do not succeed in getting the price so high as to send foreign buyers to other countries which will sell them food cheaper. Ibon still keeps its upward tendency in Glasgow, while in this country the principal anxiety ofthe iron interests is to avoid a boom. The regular semi-annual appearance of the apparently never-ending Hartupee case, before the Supreme Court, would justify that tribunal in inquiring whether Pittsburg cannot find new cases enough to occupy its attention without falling back on the same old ones at regnlar intervals. The speculators who have got bitten in trust certificates will now be able to weigh the force of the adage, "No trust, no bust." It is reported that congratniation8 to Miss Caldwell on the rupture of her engage ment to Prince Murat may turn out to be premature. There is still danger that the Prince may mark down prices on himself and put his title in the market as damaged goods at half price. Yesteebat was the day when scratching told in local politics. The manner in which the heir to the British throne is vibrating between the fes tivities of Athens and Alexandria, war rants a snspicion either that he has recovered from the ailment which has been rumored, or that he does not want to. PEOPLE OP PEOJILNENCE. Harriet Bkecher Stowe is tbe only lady member of tbe New York Authors' Club. The President has been bothered with hun dreds of letters inquiring if he is a Mason, all of which he has answered in the negative. He belongs to no secret society. Miss Nellie Hunt, who has become Mrs. L. P. Morton's private secretary. Is a daughter of the late William H. Hunt, who was Secre tary of the Navy, and late Minister to Russia. Ex-Phesidkntand Mbs. Cleveland have matured their plans to sail next June for Eu rope, where they will spend the best part of a year in traveling over the continent The Rev. Edward Abbott of Cambridge, Mass., who has just been made Protestant Episcopal Missionary Bishop of Japan, is a brother of Rev. Dr. Lyman Abbott, of Ply. mouth Chnrch, and was himself once a Congre gationalist minister. Ex-Lord Matoe WnrrEHEAD, of London, is a clever man. He is tbe only Englishman who was benefited by the Shah of Persia's re cent visit Whitehead, who was then Lord Mayor, refused to give the Shah a banquet un less he was promised a baronetcy. He gave the entertainment and is now Baron White head. General Francis E. Spinneb, ex-Treasurer of tbe United States, has reached Wash ington on his way to Florida, where he usually spends tbe winter. His signature on the hotel register is even more characteristically unde cipherable than before. He is quite feeble and is beginning to show in a marked degree the weight of his 87 years. A Pasis cablegram states that Miss Gwen doline Caldwell created a great scene at Banker Monroe's office on the day after the one on which her marriage with Prince Murat had been broken oft She went there for the pur pose of getting her letters, and, in consequence ot some remark or other, flew into a terrible passion, calling all the clerks of tbe bank fools and idiots. HARRISOK'S ETENIXG WALKS. A New Custom Inaugurated by the Occu pant of the White House. Philadelphia Record's Washington Letter. President Harrison does something which no other President of recent years has done in taking a stroll through the streets every fair evening after dinner. Sometimes Mrs. Harri son goes with him, sometimes a guest some times he is alone. Buttoned up in tbe best looking overcoat In Washington and the worst lcoking slouch hat, be saunters through the mrks and along the avenues In front of tbe White House, stopping very often at the home of tbe Postmaster General, who has just got borne from his long day's work and eaten his lonely supper. One year ago Harrison had never met Wana maker. Now no man is closer to him, not even Law Partner and Attorney General William Henry Harrison Miller. Harrison gives his confidence slowly and cautiously, but once given, as it bas been to Wanamaker, it has been given forever, and his friendship dates back accordingly to the beginning of things. CONVERTED WHILE IN JAIL An Imprisoned Murderer nt Indianapolis Experiences Religion. Indianapolis, November 6. Edward Asz man, who mnrdered his sweetheart Mrs. Ber tha Elff, and Is in jail awaiting trial for murder, has experienced religion. He takes part In the religious services every day. and leads the sing ing in a clear, strong voice, despite his wounded throat not yet entirely healed from the des perate outs wblch he Inflicted in his attempt to commit suicide. Mr. Aszman also holds prayer meeting every evening with the prisoners, and Ho appears to have undergone a great change. It is seldom tbat be can be induced to talk of his crime, and when he does, be expresses the deepest contrition. B's . iv J THE 'PITTSBUKG tISPATOH,'&v WEDNESDIA. 'NOVEMBER' THE TOPICAL TALKEK. Political Coals of Fire nnd the Cold Wave nt the Polls A New Use for tbe Phono graph LTow an Andlence Was Schooled. It isn't exactly a pleasant thing to be forced to ask a political opponent to identify you at the polls. At the prohibition election last June a gentle man went to the polls in the East End to cast his vote for the first time in that district His name was not on the register, and he was told he must bring a voter to identify him. He looked about him, but there was not a soul near whom he knew, except the pastor of his chnrch, who had but a moment before asked him to vote for prohibition, and to whom he had told his intention to vote against the amendment. It seemed rather awkward to ask the clergy man, but rather than lose his vote the uniden tified one did so. "Of course 1'lt identify you," said the broad gauge divine, and he helped his opponent to swell the vote against the reform he ardently desired. . Ir the enthusiasm of all the political workers of both parties equaled that of tbe Sewickley delegation yesterday a very fair reason for the cold wave has been found. A new use for the phonograph has been dis covered. A teacher of languages, whose admirable ac cent has brought him many pupils, resorts to the phonograph wherever he finds it as an as sistant tutor. For instance, he will talk slowly in Parisian French a page of some good author in that tongue into the phonograph and in struct his pupil to read the passage aloud while the phonograph prompts him with the proper pronunciation. After the tutor has retired the lesson remains intact upon the cylinder of the phonograph ready for farther use. It can bo seen how considerable the phonograph's aid is in this regard. V The calming effect of a good play well acted upon an audience was well evidenced on Mon day night at the Grand Opera House. It was the noisiest, most restless audience I've seen in that theater this season. A man with a horse laugh broke out at unseemly moments in the gallery; a baby cried off and on in the parquet, and everybody almost seemed inclined to chat ter to his neighbor. A large part of tbe audience at first refused to accept anything Mr. Russell did in a pathetic way they insisted that he was thero to be funny and laughed at all he did. Witness the eminently pathetic episode of tbe clay where tbe starving inventor tries to rise from his chair and his lees tremulously fail to hold him upright. A lot ot excellent folk laughed at this. But gradually as the wonderful power of that first act developed itself, and tbe truth of Mr. Russell's acting explained the pathos of his role, tbe house was hashed. Tbe man with a horse laugh forgot to operate, the crying baby was removed and the chatterers grew silent When they did make a noise it was to testify their delight and wonder at the power of play and players. All the rest of the play tbe audience was a model one in Its behavior, and it even waited till Mr. Russell had spoken the "tag" before it made its usual clamorous rush to the door. WAR IS INEVITABLE. The Clash of Arms Between European Nn lions Will be Heard In Two Years. Paris Cable to New York Herald. Captain E. L. Zalinski, America's high explo sive celebrity, is studying things military and otherwise in Paris. He is traveling under orders to obtain such information as may be obtainable regardibg certain military questions. He has already visited England, Holland, Belgium, Denmark and Germany, and may go to Italy. Coming to his pet theme Captain Zalinski said: "I am convinced that a European war is inevitable, but not in the immediate future. One consideration alone is sufficient to main tain peace for at least two years viz., the fact tbat continental nations will need that amount of time to eauip their armies with the ney style of rifle and possibly, with modifications, their artillery, to meet the requirements of smoke less powder in both cases. "In this connection I may add that war, in stead of being hastened by the frequent im provements in its appliances, is actually re tarded by them, because whenever anything of military importance Is discovered nations are apt to wait before risking a conflict until tbey have tested and applied them to their own use. As such discoveries are constantly being made, war may thus be postponed indefinitely. "But, postpone it as they may, tbe crisis mast, come, when war dots come it will be terrible. 1 have just witnessed the German maneuvers at Hanover, and I assure you tbat had those two army corps done in earnest what they made pretense of doing, of the 50.000 men who went into that ten days' action, there would not be 10.000 ready for service to-day. 1 he rest would have been placed bora do combat, dead or wounded. To such a degree have modern im provements in life destroying machinery added to the horrors of war." LADIES RAID A CLUB ROOM. They Clean Oat a Drinking Place, Driving tbe Proprl tar Away. Blub Speings, Mo., November & John Ha ley came here a week ago from Argentine, Kan., and opened a quiet club room. The local laws of Blue Springs are of the Btrictest possi ble kind, but as Haley kept a high-toned place, no one interfered with him On Saturday night, however, 25 women belonging to the temperance organization of the town, masked and armed with clubs, made an attack on the club room. Tbey broke in the doors and found seven or eight old soaks engaged in a game of cards. They ordered them out of the room, and then began knocking tbe bungs out of beer kegs and whisky barrels. Haley made a show of resistance, but he was bit on the bead with clubs, and finally ran down the street with four women after him. He escaDed in the roller mill. The women smashed all the bottles and glasses and poured tbe whisky in tbe street. One of the old topers who remained on the sidewalk appealed to the women not to destroy the whisky, but to take it home and keep it for medical purposes. "That's mighty poor whisky, ladies," he cried, "and tbe Lord didn't intend it should be dumped in the gutter while tbere are so many poor, sick people around. 1 am not feeling well, mvselt" This remark was a signal for an attack, and tbe man was compelled to take to bis heels. The club room and all its attractions were de stroyed. The women are the leading matrons of the town. HIGHLANDERS IN PARIS. The French Hoot at Them and Ridicule Their Musical Efforts. Prom the New York World. The Highlanders that were brought over to Paris toshow themselves to the public have no reason to congratulate themselves on the result of the campaign. A pile of 'moneywas spent on the enterprise, but the takings were so small tbat on tbe last day of tbe performance the acting manager was going round trying to raise 50 on his dirk. The papers not having been paid to puff, totally ignored tbe Scotchmen and their assault at arm." and tbe few Frenchmen who got out to the Tour de Nesles or to tbe Wild West Camp came to scoff rather than to applaud. The bagpipe contestparticularly irritated the Parisians, and tbe hissing and cries of "Enough. enouRb." were so loud that it bad to be stopped in spite of tbe protestations of the Endish and Americans who were present, Buffalo Bill's Indians were hugely delighted with the music as well as with the wrestling. CALLED LODIS FOE SHORT. A Royal Personage Well Favored in the Matter of Names. Krom the London Globe. 1 Louis Philippe Marie Ferdinand Pierre d' Al cantara Antoine Michael Raphael Gabriel Gon zague Xavier Francois d' Assize Jean Julis Au guste Volfando do Bragance Bourbon that is the full name, according to the Almanach de Golha, of him whom men were happily per mitted to call King Luis of Portugal. To be a royal personage generally implies an embarras de richesses in tbe matter of names, but his la:e majesty must, one would think have beaten the record In this respect. ' Sho Mny Deny the Charge. From the Philadelphia Press.i The wife of the American millionaire who la suing an English newspaper for libel, for de claring tbat she was formerly a washerwoman before she married her present husband, is certainly adopting radical means for vindicat ing her dignity, Tho substance of her accusa tion against the offending journal will probably be a solemn denial of the chargelthat she ever washed.

Society Turns Out at the Fnhnestock Boyde Wedding-The Cute Little Shep herdesses With Their Crooks. A pretty home wedding was consummated at Mrs. B. L. Fahnestook's residence in Homewood last evening, when her grand daughter became Mrs. David Boyde. The stately home, always Inviting, was made more so than usual in honor of tbe event The large, old-fashioned, central hall was a huge conservatory of greenhouse plants and hangings of smllax. The parlor. In which the ceremon was performed, to fragrant with the perfume of many roses in all colors. The bow-window was filled with lovely hothouse plants, the rich green forming an effective background for tbe tableau made by the bridal party. Lohengrin's "Bridal Chorus" by Toerge Eros'. Orchestra, acnouueed the entrance of the bride and groom. They were attended by cousins of the Dride, Messrs. Howaril Fahnestock and Walter Vandervort,.as ushers, and little Retta Fahnestock and Katie Vandervort as flower girls. The ceremony was performed Dy Rev. Dr. Benbam. of the Point Breeze Presbyterian Churcb, with a heavy gold band. The costume worn by tbe bride was a cream white faille, the simplicity of which enhanced the girlish beauty of the wearer. The front was a nlain round slrlrt ivhtati hnnir in soft folds, and a pointed body slightly low in the neck and with long sleeves. The back was en princess, extending into a full court train. Tbe neck and sleeves were finished with point lace, and the handsome veil was held in place by a coronet of orange blossoms. A cluster of roses were earned in the hand.. Around the neck was worn a handsome neck lace of pearls, tbe gilt of the groom, and con fining the lace at the neck. She also wore an antique brooch containing tbe same beautiful stones, which was the bride's father's wedding present to her mother. Tbe little girls were in dresses of white India silk, short waists, low-necked and sleeveless, and carried directolro crooks, the rings of which were filled with white roses. After tbe ceremony and coneratulations were over, the guests were sumptuously banqueted by Kuhn, and the remainder of the evening spent in a most enjoyable manner. The young people were driven to their home on Simon avenue, boulevard, which was in readiness for them, even to the servants who greeted them in the old English style. The wedding presents were every thine lovely, The opening of delightfully suggestive packages has afforded the little bride a great deal of pleasuro and kept her busy for some days past.

A golden wedding where tbe interested parties, instead of being in the sere and yellow leaf age, are in the heyday of youth, is a nov elty, but such was really the case la tbe wed ding of Miss Margaret Shaw and Mr. George Reed Lawrence last evening. The North Pres byterian Church, where the vows were taken, was most tastefully decorated with palms and ferns, and chrysanthemums of tbe golden hue abounded everywhere. The maid of honor. Miss Katharine Shaw, was attired in a corn colored crepe du chene gown and car ried a very large bunch of the same golnen hued flower. The bride was dressed in a lovely toilet of white satin. The front of the skirt was formed by wide plaits extending on the left side to the full princess train in the back, while tbe rigbt side was formed bv a graceful cascade of the satin. The corsage was half high and had elbow sleeves, both neck and sleeves trimmed with a fall of duchess lace. She wore a veil and carried white roses. The corn colored costume of the maid of honor was In the Grecian style. The drapery from the right shoulder fell over tbe folded lapped empire bodice with the broad sash ex tending high up under the arms, the loops of which formed the drapery in the back. The neck was rounded a trifle and the sleeves termi nated at the elbow. The skirt was full and of party length. Mr. C. V. Mellnr presided at the organ, and as Mendelssobn's Wedding March pealed forth, six ushers, Mr. Charles Shaw and Mr. George Shaw, brotbers of tbe bride, and Mr. Will Lawrence, a cousin of the groom, with Dr. E. G. Matson, Mr. William Shiras and Archie George, of Monongahela City, fol lowed by tbe maid of honor, preceded the bnde and groom to tbe altar. Rev.

The groom is a young attorney in the city and the son of Hon. G. V.Law rence, of Monongahela. The church was filled with a large and fash ionable andience, as both young people are fa vorites in society. A wedding trip will con sume tbe entire month of November. There was no reception, but Thursdays of December, will be devoted to charming "at homes" in tbcA new residence on Craig street. Tbe tributes of love and friendship included every thing that is lovely, delicate and costly. A TENOR'S BRIDE. Miss Laura McCllntock Weds C. U. Sledle, of the Haydn Quarter. A wedding, which has been the theme of con versation for some time past, was performed last evening in tho First Presbyterian Church. Mr. C. H. Biedle and Miss Laura McCllntock were made man and wife by Rev. Dr. Purvis. They were ushered to the altar by Mr. Clif Mc Causland, Mr. Frank W. Bear), Mr. George F. Wagner and Mr. R.

Washington Dispatch to Sew York Times. Mr. Matthew Btanley Quay is expected in Washington before the end of the week, and Mr. Christopher L. Magee will not be far be hind him. Tbe arrival of these two men will be a matter of interest to tbe small army of Pennsylvania place hunters who have not yet been assigned to stalls at the public crib, for each proposes to secure the President's aid in the contest between them for the control of the Republican party in Pennsylvania. It is hard ly an equal contest, for Quay bas the advan tage of fighting from the inside. The first struegle will be over the postmaster at Pittsburg, and here, too, Magee will find Quay in the lead. Henry P. Ford, who Is Magee's candidate, has the help of Representa tive Dalzell of tbe Pittsburg district, wbo bas already recalled to General Harrison the tat ter's expressed conviction tbat Congressmen should have something to say about tue offices intbeir districts. But Quay wants James S. McKean to be Pittsburg's postmaster, and the Senator has given notice to tbe President that he is the possessor of a "mailed hand." Gen eral Harrison has not announced his choice, but McKean's friends appear to have Informa tion which makes them very confident that Quay's wishes will be heeded. Tbey are equal ly confident that, in tbe Quay-Magee struggle for control of the Gubernatorial convention, the administration will be behind the Senator. CHINAMEN STILL COMING. The Celestials Flocking Into California in Great Numbers. Chicago, November 5. H. K. Armsby, of Victoria, B. C. says: "Your Government ought to expend some ot its surplus in building reve nue cutters to patrol the northern waters .of Puget Sound and the waters of tbe Strait The Chinese wbo land in our country are just swarming to California. All the railways of our city are doing an Immense business in ship ping their goods to California. Tbe collector at Port Townsend took alarm at tbe quantity of Chinese personal effects which appeared with out owners. He discovered that be Chinese had smuggled across,and were sending back for household goods. Then he put a stop to it. "Not long ago I called upon tbe collector at Port Townsend. He said: 'I know very well that a constant stream of Chinese is passing, but I can't guard 2,000 miles ot coast line with only seven inspectors. 1 have caught a few of tbe Celestials, bnt a great number pass un seen.' " Mr. Armsby thinks Mongolian immigration to the United States will be limited only by tbe capacity of British Columbia to receive them at (50 a head, and discharge them upon us. "Some time ago," he said, "a revenue agent came to our place, and subsequently reported at San Francisco tbat no Chinese were crossing the line. He needs but one eye now to see a systematic line of human smuggling, in which many Caucasians are interested." PHRENOLOGY HIT THE 1TARK. Following a Professor's Suggestion a Young Man Rises Rapidly. From tbe New York Star. That phrenology sometimes hits the mark is shown by tbe following anecdote: Not many years ago Egbert Wegman, who is the engineer in charge of that section of tbe new aqueduct which lies between tbe Harlem river and tbe Central park reservoir, and to whose efforts many valuable improvements in engineering methods owe their existence, was a clerk in a grocery store. Growing tired of this dull life. In which he saw no future, and having no fancy for any particular profession, he determined to visit a phrenologist, have his head examined and follow whatever calling was suggested. He was told tbat bis mathematical and engi neering faculties were prominent, and be at once entered upon a course of study in this branch. He applied himself most assiduously to bis work, and to-day he stands among the foremost men of his profession. They Should, Hunt Him Up.

The extensive veins of asphalt on tbe other hand, bid fair to become of great commercial importance. Tbe deposits thus far discovered are chiefly in the sandstone ledges along the line of the Denver and Rio Grande Railway. These ledges extend across the Wasatch moun tains and eastward Into Northwestern Colo rado. Prof. Newberry thinks these depostts ot asphalt, with which tbe ledges are in places saturated, have their origin in spontaneous distillation of the bituminous shales of the Colorado group, which, in Eastern Utah, are from L500 to 2,500 feet thick. It Is reported tbat hi some places the sub stance comes to the surface fn a seml-llquld form, as in tbe case of tho Trinidad asphalt lake; but that which has thus far been placed on tbe market has been taken from tbe ledges of sandstone, and is called "sand asphalt." Mr. HoIIster, Secretary of tbe Chamber of Com merce of this place, informs me that in this sandstone asphalt nature has mixed the sand stone with tbe asphalt, something that in gen eral has to be done artificially the latter being naturally less perfect than the former.

From the New York Snn.1 Great interest has been excited In shipping circles both in this country and In England, by tbe call recently made at Mllford Haven by the steamship City of Rome on her last passage out from New York, when she discharged her passengers there Instead of at Liverpool. Mll ford Haven Is a port hi Wales, on the extreme western point of England. London is 235 miles from Mllford Haven on a direct line east, and Liverpool, to the northwest of London, is much further from the big city. For a whole genera tion tho advantages' of Mllford Haven as a stopping place for the transatlantic steamships have been pointed out, but this Is the first time tbat the port has really been utilized for pas senger traffic by a big steamblp line. It is believed that the Mllford route can be made in from 18 to 24 hours less than byway of Liverpool from New York. Many of tbe steamship men say tbat nothing can prevent Mllford Haven from becoming the great point of landing and departure in tbe traffic between Europe and the United States. A TALE OF TWO SNAKES. One Lost III Senses and a Locomotive Cat It la Two. New Yoke; November EL As some work men were crossing the Erie Tailroad track a short distance above "Woodside yesterday they saw two big black snakes sunning themselves on the ties. Both reptiles were asleep, and the ngly bead of one of them almost touched the rail. The other was coiled a foot away and close to a hole between the ties. As the men" saw them a train from Jersey City came aweep- Ing-along. Neither snake moved until the lo comotive was within five feet of them. Then tbe one that was nearest to the hole glided out of sight but its mate, dazed, apparently by tbe roar of the- train, darted tbe wrong way. It tried to cross the rail, and was cut into two nearly equal jarts. Tbe train had hardly passed on when the snake tbat bad escaped came back to look for its companion. It examined both sections of tbe body, and seemed to be In doubt as to which was the portion it wanted. Before it could make np its mind one of the men killed it with bis shovel. POSITIVELI AND EMPHATICALLY, SO. Nobody Wants- Cancelled Stamps at Any Price for Anything. The Dispatch baa already said that no one wants cancelled postage stamps. To prevent other people from asking the old and oft repeated question; this from the New York Tribune is apropos : To the Editor of the Tribune: SIB Has anyone ever offered aoo for 1,030,000 cancelled postage stamps? Is tbe offer open at the present timer To whom and where may such accumulated stamps be delivered to ret the money 7 W.P.N. .ttEWYOEE, November:, 1889. .No! Noll Noli! As the Tribune has repeatedly said, tbere never was any sucb offer made, and tbere is no foundation whatever for this most extraordinary mania regarding it. Just make a little calculation, and yon will see tbe practical impossibility of collection a mill ion stamps, anyway. Tbe whole business Is on a par with the theory that the moon Is made of green cheese. Ed. SPOOKS IN THE HOUSE. Unearthly Visitors That Are Mystifying the Family of nlloosler.

Several persons claim to have conversed with the nneasy spirit, and raps and strange noises are frequently heard. Only one person has seen tbe apparition In bodily form, and then it appeared in the shape of a dog, which soon melted away Into tbe thin air. A bio bear walked leisurely through the fields of Letterkenny township, Franklin county, on Sunday. A party of hunters took after him with dogs, and chased him until nightfall, but the bear escaped.
