ur . Jf 'fcrWAt 5 - t" ".! " 3&V- c;v - -i -v THE PITTSBURG- D1SPATCH, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1889. 3 3 tfOLIDAT PRESENTS. JSHSilTer is More Popular than Gold, and Diamonds Come High. NOVELTIES FOR CHILDREN. .. Pfew It ifc Diygoods Men Bushed With Trade While i Furriers Are in the Soup. CHOOSING A GET IS SOT AN EAST TASK A glimpse in the various stores yesterday, or a promenade down the principal shop ping streets, proved conclusively that Christmas was not far off, without resorting to a calendar. The female sex were out in lull force, looking, reflecting, consulting, making and remaking up their minds. This Christmas shopping is one or their dear de lights, and the amount of time, anxiety and loss of sleep they put into the purchase of their gifts should make them doubly dear to those who receive them. The afternoon, spent with the throng, by a reporter, resulted in quite an extended knowledge of the stock of Christmas goods carried by the different stores, and the state or feeling existing among local trade, also a desire to be somebody's relative or friend. In the je'welry stores the only requisite necessary to make a good selection of pres ents isthe consciousness of a well-filled purse, for their windows and glittering trays afford an opportunity of indulging the most whimsical and elegant taste. The designs in jewelry are more artistic, daintier and belter calculated to adorn than ever, and the simpler and more expensive the article the more in demand it is. Silver rivals gold, and the exquisite gold hatpins, hair pins, lacenins, scarfpins and brooches are all duplicated in the silver. SILVER IS THE RAGE, Silver, in toilet articles, is paramount this year, and there are the most exquisite silver backed brushes, silver handled combs, silver framed hand glasses, and cut glass, silver topped toilet bottles, beside innumer ab'e boxes completely equipped for every branc1. of the feminine toilet, with the silver mounted articles. The proprietors of the jewelry 6tores are happy, the sales have been very cood thus far, and they expect a "whooping up" trade from this time to the bolidavs. The sales of diamonds have been abnor mally lame. The prospective increase in price of these beautilnl stones occasioned by the London syndicate purchasing exten sively in the diamond fields of South Africa has resulted in a "laying in" of the spark lers by those who had the ready cash. There is nothing particularly new in settings or in jewelry proper, except the corsage pin, and that is an extravagant economy, if two such words can be reconciled, for when one of these pins is worn no other jewelry is required or even admissible. There are hut three of them in the city; one repre sents an orchid, natural size and color, enamel work done in Jfew York, by a real French artist on solid gold and set with diamonds; its cost is $300. The second is a spray of apple blossoms, manufactured in the same way and with diamond settings; the other one fs a pink rosebud set with the same lovely stone. VEEY PBETTY STEMS. They all have exquisitely twisted gold stems, and are the very latest conceat in the jewel line. They may be put to various uses, confining drapery principally, either at the shoulder, belt or side. As before stated, when worn, no other jewelry is ad missible, for they are so very large and con spicuous. IX THE SAME STOEES are the most exquisite vases, fancy articles, pot ponrri and tete a tete tea sets in Crown Derby, Eoval "Worcester, Doulton and Sevres, besides beautilnl statues and bnsts .in jtalian marble. In one store all those vhohave used the toilet lotions and creams of Madam Becamier, the famons French beauty, may feast their eyes upon a fac simile of ber classically shaped bead ana delicately chiseled features. It is one of the prettiest pieces of marble on exhibit at the present time. ' A bronze statue that attracted a great deal of attention in a window yesterday was "The First Bath," by Gaston Serena, and Pittsburg claims the only piece of his work in this country thus far. It certainly is divinely natural; the little fellow, perched upon his father's shoulders, ready for the plunge, is, by his countenance, in a state of fright and rebellion. Clock sets are very popular among Christmas purchasers. They consist of a handsome little clock with two can delabras corresponding in color, material and design. The favorite design is the Louis XV., the irregular and fantastic, but some very modern ones are shown in which little Cupids hold the candles. THEY CAN'T BE SPOILED. The jewelry and toy trades, are the only ones that the warmer weather does not affect unpleasantly, consequently the dealers are not;crumbling at "Old Probabilities," as the fur dealers and furnishing men and clothiers are. The stock in the emporiums over which Santa Clans is supposed to reign is unusu ally large and complete, though no special novelties are shown. That branch of trade has reached sucha perfected state that to invent a new thing is almost impossible. Tor the baby who "has never seen a Christ mas yet" there are rattles, rattles in such profusion and variety that the most tvranni cal little elf could not fail to be "rattled" oy the display, and dolls, especially for his liabyship, dolls that an occasional bath in haby'a mouth will not hurt either the doll or the baby. Tooth coaxers in ivory and silver, with which to assist the little pearls in their egress into the world of ahs and ohs always occasioned by their appearance, are quite common. For the older toddlers are cunning little rocking chairs, sofas, pianos, fifes, horns, drums, whips, canes, goats, all sorts of me chanical toys, express wagons, with and without horses; soldier sets including cap, drum, sword and knapsack, in which the little hero will loot and feel very fierce horses of every kind, the old-fashioned rock ing horse and the patient rocking horse, the horse on wheels, and the horse without wheels, and every one warranted not to throw the tiny rider. CABS IS- DEMAND. A miniature street car company must be selling out, for lots of street car stock is for sale, drivers and all, even to the signs upon thecars, "This car for the Exposition" and "This- car for toe parks," etc, etc The wee little mothers have well-filled or phan asylums from which to select the little ones to oe lovea, pettea, caressed, rocked, scolded, spanked and banished. The doll family in three generations is in the -.city awaiting permanent homes. There is the baby doll in its -pretty little mull robes snd merino cloak the young lady doll, the mother doll and the grandmother with her cap, spectacles and knittings. Dolls that are mutes, and dolls that are not mutes, chatty little talka tive creatures that can net er cause enmity between themselves and their sweet little mistresses by their power of speech, because ther must be "wound up" before they can talk, and their dear little mammas are al waya "wound Tip," and so have the advan tage. For the benefit of the doll familv pw.. ithinc that is at all conducive to the petite mistresses' comfort or pleasure has been manufactured in miniature for them brass bedsteads, cradles, carriages, Bofas, entire bed room suites, complete dining room ser vices, table, chairs, aishes, and luxuriously upholstered furniture for parlor and library, also every modern convenience known to the kitchen ot the most elegantly furnished home.

The furriers and clothiers are inclined to think the jewelers and fancy goods merchants combined to get a cor ner on the weather, and have re galed the public with the qual ity best suited to increase their trade In the fur line, although heavily stocked with everything new and nice and soft and warm, the dealers are selling nothing, and cannot hope for any Christmas returns un less a polar wave strikes soon. In seal coats their trade has been unusually good and not affected by the weather in the least, ior as they say, a lady decides in July that she is going to purchase a new seal, and long before the time for cold weather she gives her order, and has the soft, silky garment laid away for the first cold snap. There is nothing particularly new in the holiday line of gents' furnishing goods. Some novelties are shown in hand-painted and embroidered neckwear, vvery handsome bath robes, bath slippers, smoking jackets, and the usual stock of umbrellas and canes. The trade at these places is so uniformly good during the entire year vthat the slight depression in the underwear trade does not affect their urbanity to any marked degree. The gentlemen buy everything with their usual extravagance TICKLED MEECHAKTS. The countenance of the average dry goods merchant fairly beams with satisfaction for their trade has been immense Their onlj trouble is where to get the goods to meet the demand. They have had three times the stock this year of any previous year, and in some lines are completly sold out, and it still lacks two weeks of Christmas. Their stores are very attractive, and most awfully crowded. The handkerchief counter is a favorit e one, also the linen counter, where all the lovely dinner and lunch cloth are displayed. In fancy goods their counters rival the Jewelry stores in the as sortment and the beauty of the articles dis played. The umbrella counters attract in numerable buyers, and the line carried this year is unusually extensive and handsome In tbe candy stores great preparations are in progress to make the annual attack of dyspepsia more appetizing in form than ever. Boxes for the toothsome sweets are obsolete, and exqnisite little baskets of every size and shape, in all the pretty straws, will be nscd for the Christmas candy in stead. Modjeska rails at the Americans for being a candy-loving and indulging race, but, with temptation put in such irresistible form, how can they abstain, and isn't it pre ferable anyway to smoking cigarettes, as she does?

How often has been remarked the wonder fnl prosperity of the Hamilton music house, step by step upward, each yeai increasing the business, till to-day it stands pre-eminently ahead of all others. The cause of this is apparent. From the beginning he has placed before his patrons pianos and organs of such merit and worth that they not only please those who possess them, hnt also their neighbors and friends; the instruments speak their own qualities. The names of Decker Bros., Knabe, Fischer and Estey pianos, and Estey, and Story & Clark organs are praised by artists and amateurs. In what other sales room do you find such an array of first-class instruments? They challenge comparison. For the holidav "trade Hamilton has on display a beautiful and endless variety of these matchless instruments which you can buy at very low prices and on terms the most accommodating. It will pay you to see them before you purchase The salesroom is open every nieht till 9 o'clock. Hamilton building, 91 and 93 Fifth ave Tbe Best Chance Yet.

A Kesolation Against the Beck's Run Schindery Introduced. ME. DUNCAN RAPS SOUTHSIDERS. The Larimer ATenae Passenger Eoad Ordi nance Was Passed. TBACTIOff LINE OPPOSITION NO GOOD Both branches of Pittsburg Councils met yesterday afternoon, but there was not much transpired in the way of vocal musie Out side of a few raps at the Southside members by Messrs. Magee and Duncan, the proceed ings were harmonious and peaceful. On the call of wards in the Select branch the following ordinances and petitions were presented and properly referred: Author izing the Federal Street and Pleasant Val ley Passenger Railway Company to use ani mal power, electricity or cables on their lines in this city, and allowing the said company to change from one to the other, as may be desired, also allowing the company to construct double tracks on Duquesne way, Seventh and Ninth streets; author izing the grading, paving and curbing of Margaretta street; authorizing a sewer on Carson street, from South Second street to the Monongahela bridge; authorizing the grading, paving and curbing of Washing ton street, from Beltzhoover avenue to a point east A number of resolutions were presented and adopted requesting the Finance Com mittee to make provision in the next appro priation for certain improvements. Mr. Treusch's resolution was for the repairing of Seventh street and Evans alley; Mr. .Nis bet's resolution was for 515,000 to construct and equip an engine house in the Thirty first ward, but Mr. Bobertson amended it to $30,000 for the purpose of including the Thirty-second and Thirty-fifth wards in the same improvement; another resolution was to have Tayior, Edmond. Penn and Liberty streets, Seventeenth ward, repaved, the rea sons urged being that these were of the first to be paved with wooden blocks 18 years ago, and the blocks having rotted the streets are in very bad condition. All these reso lutions were adopted. MONET FOB MATBONS. A communication from Chief Brown re questing tbe transfer oi $3,000 from the Bureau of Health appropriation to the Bureau of Police, stated that when the ap propriations were made, the Finance Com mittee made no provision for the police matrons, whose employment was enforced subsequently by an act of Legislature. The police matrons' salaries amounted to $4,500 per year, and the fund of the Police Bureau would fall f3,000 short for the year. The resolution was indorsed by Controller Mor row, and was adopted by Councils. The attention ot Mr. Nisbet having been called to the condition of the Beck's Bun schindery through the columns of the Southside edition of The Dispatch, be presented a resolution charging the schin dery with being a nuisance, polluting the water which the Southside people drink, and calling on the Bureau of Health and the Health Committee on Public Safety to investigate, and that the City Attorney be instructed to look into the legal status of the city in the case When the ordinance granting tne use oi certain East End streets to the Larimer Ave nue Passenger Bailway Company, was pre sented and called up for passage, Mr. Keating presented a protest from the Pitts burg Traction Company, who had requested him to state their claim. The route of the proposed line begins at the intersection of Penn and Collins avenues. The ordinance also includes a branch line out Broad street, and provides Tor the use of cables for mo tive power, the line to be commenced within nine mouths and completed within two years. " m TBETB CHAKTEB ANTEDATED. Mr. Keating said that the Pittsburg Traction had taken out a charter for tbe same route as the Larimer avenue com pany proposed on the 13th of last August, while the charterof the last named company was dated November 20, several months later. Councils paid but little attention to the protest, however, and the ordinance was passed by a vote of 26 to 1, Mr. Beilly'i vote being the only negative. The Finance Committee reported favorably on exonerating the Home for Destitute Women from water taxes for 1888 and 1889. The resolution was adopted. A resolution requesting the Chief of the Department of Public Works to make an estimate of cost of repairing Butler from Forty-eighth to Forty-ninth streets was adopted.' A resolu tion for the appointment of a special" com mittee to act in conjunction with the Cham ber of Commerce in securing the necessary legislation to present the encroachments on the rivers and harbors ot Pittsburg was adopted. A number of minor ordinances were passed. In Common Councils a number of papers were presented, chief among which were the ones granting the Brilliant Electric Light Company the right to erect poles and wires, and providing that the city shall not pay for street lamps more than 75 per cent of the rates charged private consumers; compell ing owners ot lots on streets which are sewered to make connection with the sewer, using a nine-inch terra cotta pipe, and au thorizing the Chief of the Department of Public Works to lay the connections at the expense or the property owners, if the latter neglect to do so. Mr. Duncan presented a resolution de claring that Soho street, from Center avenue to Filth avenne, is impassable to pedes trians on acconnt of mud, and directing the Chief of the Department of Pnblic Works to clean the sidewalks. Passed. A resolution was also introduced by Mr. Duncan, and passed, to bnild a bulkhead on Schaffer street, to keep the roadway in place Mr. Bigham, for the Committee on Pnblic Works, presented ordinances for opening Webster street, Monongahela street. McKee place, and for a sewer on Twenty-eighth street; all of which were passed. ME. CAENAHAN'S EEPOKT. Mr. Carnahan, from the Committe on Sur veys,Tresented a number of ordinances es tablishing the grade of streets. The princi pal were Bertha street, Water street, from Smithfield to Grant street; locating Forbes avenue, from Boyd to Diamond street, which were passed. The report o! the Department of Awards on a number of contracts was approved. Mr. H. C. Howard wrote a letter in which he stated his bid to grade and pave Grand view avenue was the lowest by $500, but was refused because his bond was irregular. The latter fact he denied. Under Select Council business the Lari mer avenue railway was taken up and passed. Tbe ordinance authorizing Bea & Co. to build a bridge over Greenough street, was passed finally. A resolution to transfer .$3,000 from the Health to the Police Bureau was passed. The resolution directing the portrait of William Pitt to be hnng back pf amended to provide for hanging it in tbe City Clerk's office The free bridge resolu tion as passed in Select Council was adopt ed. The resolutions relative to repaying Seventh street and Evans alley were amend ed so as to call for an estimate on the cost only. The resolution for including in the esti mates of 1890, $30,000 for engine honses in tbe Thirty-first, Thirty-second and Thirty fifth wards was. amended by Mr. Duncan, who added $10,000 for tbe Thirteenth ward. Mr. Bigham said the Thirteenth ward was trying to hang on to the coattails of the Southside Mr. Duncan replied that Mr. Bigham talked as if tbe Southside was a section of the city by itself, and the South- side members always acted that way; they never looked after tbe Interests of the city at large. He hoped that this sectional feel ing would never prevail in Councils. Chair- said. .air. J8;gfc looked oa the. Southside as a foreign country, and was warding off invasion. The amendment was defeated by a vote of 9 ayes to 14 noes, and the resolution passed as it came from Select Council. The Beck Bun schindery resolution was adopted, and Council adjourned.
