THE ALLEGED BIGAMIST IN JAIL Pretty Jlaud McCrea went to the Central police station last night and told her sad story to Police Inspector McAleese. It ap pears that she was deceived by a plausible man, whose record, according to the In spector, could not be much worse. She is the dauchter of a molder, who lives at No. 217 East street, Allegheny. She is a very pretty young woman, with almost perfect form, regular features, large dark eyes and dark hair. An elder sister is married to a man named Fred Goebel, and lires at No. IS Franklin street. Fred is a salesman in Jackson's clothing house on Liberty aenue, and is highly respected. John Goelfel, a brother, went a few years ao to Philadelphia and there married a woman named Lizzie. With her he visited bis brother in this city, and there met his sister-in-law's pretty black-eyed sister, Maud. John was smitten, and not long after his return to Philadelphia, a tew months aco, be returned alone to this city. He tookevery opportunity to meet Maud, and used to go oTer to Alleghenv to see her. About the first of this month John Goebel told Maud that he must leave the city lor the "West to look for work. He told her that he loved her, and proposed that she go with him and be married. She asked abont Lizzie, in Philadelphia, and he told the girl that he had obtained a divorce from Lizzie. A BUNAWAY MAKBIAGE. On Tuesday, May 6, John Goebel and Maud McCrea secretly left Pittsburg for Cincinnati. The next day they were mar ried, at Covington, Ky., by the county judge. They then returned to Cincinnati, where they lived at a cheap lodging house, while John pretended to be seeking work. The disappearance of Maud and John at thtsame time opened the eyes of Maud's parents and sisters, for there is a third sister, unmarried and also very pretty, living at home in Allegheny. It was at once guessed that the two had run away. The sisters wrote to Philadelphia, to Mrs. Liz zie Goebel. whose address they knew, and were horrified when they received word that she and John had not been divorced at all, but that she was still his legal wife. Bat so word could be heard from the ruaaways, and where ther were in the East, South or "West was beyond all speculation. The poor cirl's parents were greatly worried, and the unmarried sister, whose hair verces closely on auburn, vowed vengeance if she should ever again set her eves on "that John Goebel." The nnravelinc of the intricue. as the critics ot Greek tragedy call it, must be re lated as Maud gave it, from bcr red lips, to Inspector McAleese last night. And as she told it her big black eyes seemed almost to emit flame. A honeymoon's sad ending. John found no work in Cincinnati. All doors were closed to him, but Maud thinks he did not skin bis knuckles with knocking on them. At last their money was all gone, and when John had in his pocket only one well-worn quarter, of the vintage of '75, he told her that they must shake from their feet the mud of Cincinnati's streets and woiJr their way, as best they could, toward thsold home in Piysburg. So they crowded a few articles of raiment into into a handle and started to walk. They tramped from Cincinnati to Colum bus, "ft rained nearly every day, and some times between rains. It was a terrible Jour ney, but the end of it was more terrible. They took shelter in barns, in horse sheds by country churches, in deserted houses, and twice found rest in the beds of hospitable farmers. It was a slow tramp, a dreary and wet one, and many days one of hunger. But they reached Columbus, and there, from people who took pity on them because of Goebel's doleful tale and the black-cved Maud s sweet but tired face, raised enough money to bring them to Pittsburg by rail. BACK TO THE OLD HOME. They reached this city on last Friday evening. Goebel went for the night to his brother's house on Franklin street, and Maud sought refuge under tie roof of her parents in Allegheny. Herappearauce was pitiiul enough, but the story she learned at home made all her weary journey seem like a pilgrimage through purgatory. She was not a wife at all, but a deceived young woman. On Friday her sister Clide went with the story to Inspector McAleese. He had heard but a little of it when he sent Detec tives Bobinsou and Shore to the house on Franklin street. John Goebel was arrested, taken before Alderman Gripp and held for court. He is in the county jail. The wroneed girl said that she would push the case to the last. The Inspector has written to Philadelphia to secure tne story of Mrs. Goebel, but has not yet received reply. The Inspector says that he has learned that Goebel served in Philadelphia a term of one year for robbery, and that before his departure with Maud for Cincinnati, he robbed an Allegheny man of 43. A BOOM FOB ALLEGHENY. The Common Council Pass the California Avenne Ordlnnnce. Unfinished business came up before a special meeting of Allegheny Common Council last night. Following routine work, upon Mr. Staufler's motion, the action taken in referring the ordinance for the grading of California avenue, from Island avenue to the city line, was reconsidered. At a pre vious meeting the ordinance had been passed, but, after City Solicitor Elphin stone's speech, the action was reconsidered and the ordinance referred back to the Street Committee. A motion was finally made to pass the or dinance. Upon this Messrs. Mercer and Stauffer presented petitions signed by mer 'shants and many prominent citizens asking that the ordinance be passed. The petitions stated that Pittsburg bad eclipsed Allegheny in general progress on account of opening broad highways in its undeveloped portions, while Allegheny has never done anything to improve her main outlets, and tbe opening of California ave nue was a step in the right direction. President Hunter stated that owing to a defect in the laws the city would have to pay a portion of the cost, about 40.000, but the money-would come back in a few years in taxes. Mr. Stauffer spoke the same as President Hunter and then the ordinance was passed 34 ayes to 4 noes. Messrs. Drum, Stemm ler, Thomas and Vogler voted no. After other busiuess the meeting ad journed. EDDIE MYERS SUED FOB A BILL. One ot nil Hardware Creditors Hold st Note for $375. Wolf, Lane & Co. yesterday entered suit against James E. Myers to recover $375 on a note. Myers is theyoung map confined in the county jail charged with the murder of his aunt, Miss Margaret Douglass, of Mc Keesport, two weeks ago to-day. He was in the hardware business for-tour months, and in that time "dropped" considerable money. "When he quit the hardware trade and went into the real estate business, it is said, he left several unpaid bills in the hands of his late partner. FOR THE WEST PENN.

After the concert a reception will be tendered by Mrs. Logan tn Jior milit-irv and political friends. The entertainments are to be given to raise money to pay for the improvements, now almost completed, at the hospital. A mansard roof, 400 feet long. 35 feet wide and 15 feet high, has been added to thebuilding. The cost, including beds, furnishings, etc, will be about 510,000, aod there is no money in the treasury to pay for the work. Tne new addition was rendered absolutely neces sary by the cramped quarters of the build ing. OVEBCEOWDED 'WITH PATIENTS. For the past six months or more 30 to 50 patients have had to sleep on the floors of the institution, there being no beds for them. With the new improvement accom modations can now be furnished to about 300 patients. The railroads will run excursion trains on the days of entertainment, and the rate, including a coupon for admission, will be SI. The rate will be the same, irregardless ot distance, within a radins of 50 miles, and every cent of the proceeds will be turned over to the hospital. A new fire extinguishing appaiatus has just been placed in the buildiDg. Lints of hose have been stretched on every floor, and should a fire break out the whole building, if necessary, could be flooded at a minute's notice.

SUSPENSION BEIDGE TO BE REBUILT The directors of the Pittsburg, Allegheny and Manchester road met yesterday morn ing, and decided to reduce 'the fares ou all the company's lines from 6 to 5 cents. The new rate goes into effect to-day. In the afternoon the stockholders of tbe road met, and a large majority decided to reorganize the company, increase the capital stock and change the name. The only per sons who have not yet signed are A. M. Byers and Fred Gwinner. These gentlemen were not at themeeting, but the others think they will be satisfied when everything is properly understood. About 20 stockhold ers were present, though C. L. Magee and George B. Hill were absent, but were repre sented. Fred Magele, after the meeting, stated that the company could not be organized unless Messrs. Byers and Gwinner signed, but the other stockholders feel sure they can go ahead without their consent. Out of 7,000 shares these two gentlemen control 461. Commodore Kountz, after some details had been explained to him which he did not understand, signed the paper, and his 1,500 shares went to swell the vote of the majority. BEOEOAKIzfNO THE ROAD. A committee on organization, consisting of Fred Magee, Commodore Kountz and John H. Dalzell, was appointed. This committee will meet at C. L. Magee's office to-day to decide on a plan for the election of a Board of Directors. As soon as this is done tbe new company will be organized, or rather the old Pittsburg, Alleghenyand Manchester Company will be merged into the Pittsburg and Allegheny Traction Eoad Company. The capital stock of the company was in creased to $3,000,000. Mr. Uttiles Baird, one ot the stockholders, stated that in a lew days all the details of reorganization would be completed, and the contracts for au elec tric road would be let. This means that by next winter there will be another rapid transit line to Allegheny. Mr. Baird thought that Messrs. Brers and Gwinner would be found in line when the proper time came. He thought Mr. Byers was too good a business man to hinder the progress of tbe city, or not to go into a company that will increase his dividends. THEY WILL GO AHEAD. In any case he couldn't see how these gen tlemen could hamper the company. The ma jority had decided to go ahead, and he doesn't think it possible that a small minor ity can block the work. He also stated that there was no opposition to Messrs. Byers and Gwinner. Some of the other stockhold ers were mad because these men were not present, and one claimed that they were try ing to squeeze the company to buy them out at a good figure. Every stockholder who holds a share in the old company will have eight in the new one. In this connection it may be, said that the stockholders of the Sixth street bridge will meet to-morrow to vote on an increase of the capital stock of tbe company for the purpose of erecting a new bridge for the accommoda tion of the Pittsburg and Allegheny traction road. Superintendent Chapman stated that the present bridge was inadequate, and it was lound that it would cost almost as much to widen it as to rebuild it, and even then it would be an unsatisfactory structure. BEBUILDING THE SUSPENSION BRIDGE. Ho said tbe stockholders bud no intention of impeding the progress of the city, and all tbe interested people that he had talked to were in favor of building a new bridge. About a year or so ago the company, at great expense, had the bridge examined by a competent engineer. He pronounced it in go'od condition after a thorough inspection. The big cables ranning back into the walls were uncovered, and though a little rusted, were still in an excellent state of preserva tion and as effective as ever. The stockholders at this meeting will de cide on the style of bridge to be erected, and how much the capital stock will have to be increased to build it. WTTH A DIES. KNIFE. How a Tonne Ynrdmnster, it Is Said, En forced Orders. A man employed in tbe Baltimore and Ohio freight yard, at the foot of Boss street, at about noon yesterday went to the office of Dr. W. C.

The man did not give his name, but said he was a switchman, and had been cut by the son of Samuel McElroy, yardmaster of the Balti more and Ohio. The father was away, and the young man was giving orders. The switchman did not like bim, and refused to obey an order to throw a switch. He said that young Mc Elroy then attacked him with a dirk knife. He said that he would cause McEIroy'a ar rest to-dav. THE DAT "WE DECORATE. Allegheny G. A. R.

Inspector McAleese got out a search war rant and placed it in the hands of Detectives Shore and Bendel, who searched Milligan's room,at No. 3 Clay alley, and found a regu lar mine of what is evidently stolen goods. In a great big trunk in the room were found a splendid array of clothing, six new dress suits, of fine material, seven new pairs of trousers, a lot of ladies' and gentlemen's fine silk underwear and hosiery, about a dozen umbrella and cane handles of gold and sil ver that had evidently been wrenched off, gold watch cases, rings and other jewelry and a large quantity of small nick-naks of value that may have been picked up in the rooms of tbe hotel guests. The clothing and some of the other articles still bear the marks of commercial travelers. The stuff is in the possession of Inspector Mc Aleese, and he is anxious to have it identi fied.

They will be equipped with electric motors and the round trip of the road will be made in ten minutes. The people living in Oakland, particu larly in tbe vicinity of old Linden Grove, now" called Oakland square, are indignant at the statement that the company will charge an extra fare on the feeder. The new electric cars will rnn down Atwood street to Bates and around the bluff back of Linden Grove. "When the line was pro jected, it was a common supposition that the company would issue exchange or trans fer tickets to the people usinc the cable cars to come to town. The officials of tbe com pany now say an extra fare will be charged and many of the people living along tbe line say they will continue to walk rather than pay 5 cents additional. They say they will not pay 5 cents for the privilege of transversiug part ot the route to and irom their homes. N Hn Ijonled Too Long.

Railroad Coal Men Displeased at the Stand Taken by Miners. PLAIN EES0LUTI0NS ADOPTED, Indiana Tinners Arrive Here to Take the Place of Strikers. BOILER MAKERS WANT SHORTER HOURS The coal operators are very much put out with the miners who refuse to work for the Imperial Coal Company, the Snowden mine of the Pittsburg and Chicago Gas Coal Companv, Hartley & Marshall and Gregg & "Wildman. A largely attended meeting of operators was held in the office of the Pittsburg Coal Agency yesterday, at which the situation was discussed. Some of them argued that there was no use in having an organization for the purpose of dealing with the miners' organization if the latter did not intend to live up to the agree ments made between them. It was stated positively that the miners had broken faith with them, and the indi cations are, if the matter is not settled soon, serious trouble will ensue. Before the meet ing adjourned the following resolutions were unanimously adopted: Whereas. The miners. In refusing to work at the mines of the Imperial Coal Company, the Snowden mine of the Pittsburg and Chicago Gas Coal Company, Hartley & Mar shall and Gregg & Wildman, before they sub mitted tbe difference between them and the operators to tho properly authorized tribunal for adjudication, have violated tho agreement made and entered into by and between tho miners and operators in joint convention rela tive thereto, Resolved, That the attention of the proper authorities be called at once, by the chairman of this meeiln. to this serious breach of faith on the part of said miners, and request that such action be promptly discontinued; as per sistence in such course will work to tbe de struction of the whole fabric of arbitration and conciliation, that has entailed benefits on both miners and operators during the put four years of Its operation, a result which we. as operatorc, most earnestly desire to avoid. Our object is to act In harmony and nnlty on the Hues of promoting confidence and the mutual interest of the miners as well as of ourselves. The matter of a scale for dead work, which the recent conference committee failed to settle, was referred to Messrs. Boger Hart ley, Alexander Patterson, James W. Shields and "Wm. Bradliug, with full power to act. It is not probable, however, that anything will be done in reference to the matter until after the meeting of the miners which has been called for next week. MUST WAKE CONCESSIONS. Tho Tinners' Sirlko Will Likely be Settled Within a Week. The tinners' strike remains a stubborn fight Neither side has expressed a willing ness to give in. The journeymen will meet to-morrow night, when it is possible that a committee will be appointed to meet tbe master tinners for the purpose of arbitrating the difficulty. Until alter there has been a conference there is no prospect for a settlement, bnt it is the universal belief on both sides that the fight cannot be continued much longer. One side or both will be compelled to make con cessions inside of a weeic. George Muhler, who withdrew from the union last Saturday, called at The DIS PATCH office last night and denied that he had received three limes as much strike benefits as other members of Local Union No. 12. He says he only received 55 in lour weeks, except 53 he was compelled to borrow. Part of the men are here from Indiana, -and it is said some of them will go to work to-day. - BOILER MAKERS' MEETING. They Will Boon Decide to Ask for a Shorter Day's Work. The boiler makers held an open meeting last night to consider the matter of making demands for either shorter hours or an in crease of wages. The men work ten hours a dar now and receive ?2 60 per day. There were a large number of non-union men present and qnite a large number ot newmembers were admitted to membership. Not more than half the boiler makers of the city are in Local Union No. 12, and it is the desire to get all organized before making demands. Another open meeting will be held next "Wednesday evening when the subjejt will be considered further. In the meantime, a committee appointed at last night's meeting will lormulate demands to be presented at that meeting for approval before being presented to the manufacturers. It is probable the men will ask for eight hours. STBTCE FOB SH0BTEB HOURS. Photographic Snpply Employes Took a Short Rest Testerday.

A Meeting of Citizens Held A Schema to Open Bingham Street. A meeting is now on foot on the South side among the property holders to have Carson street paved from Seventeenth street, where the 80-foot street commences, cp as far as the consent of the property holders can be had. ' A meeting of citizens was called for last night at the corner of Twenty-first and Carson stree'ts of those who are interested in the movement, but on ac count of it not being well advertised but few were present. Another meeting will be called soon. As the time approaches-when the Elec tric road will be in operation, the citizens are again raising the question of what shall be done with the wagon traffic below Seven teenth street on Carson. It is said that the heavily loaded iron wagons will not be able to pull back onto the track when thev have once pulled off close to the curb, and the increased number of cars with last time will not give them nn apportunity to cross from one track to another. Of" necessity this traffic will revert to Bingham and "Sarah streets. One proposition is to open Bing ham street to First street or to Smithfield, if possible. VESTRYMAN HALPIN TALES. Sr. Peter's Church Committee Bas Heard Nothing From Trinity. "William Halpin, of the firm of Halpin, Kennedy & Co., and a member of the vestry of St. Peter's Episcopal Chnrch, was seen yesterday in regard to the progress of the movement to consolidate the church with Trinity. He said: "We would like to see the consolidation. but are not anxious for it, as many people have been led to suppose. When the scheme was first proposed it was before the Maxwell trouble turned up, and the Shoen berger endowment fund was unheard of. The intention was to sell St. Peter's prop erty and endow Trinity. "We appointed a committee to meet a similar committee irom Trinity, and the proposition was laid before them. Since then nothing bas been done apparently, as we heard nothing from the other church. It is without a pastor now, and it may be that something will be done 'THE SUPPLY niELASTIC. Robber Goods to be Farther Advanced oa Acconnt of a Shortage. Eubber goods are a springy commodity these days, a further advance in prices of 15 to 25 per cent on belting, packing hose and mechanical rubber goods having been agreed upon in New York by representatives of the principal manufacturers in the United States. Inquiry of a prominent dealer in this city elicits the information that the advance is caused by the world's production being in adequate" to the demand. He states that prices will be kept down as long as possible, but that it must come and will range from 10 to 100 per cent, and on pure rubber goods 35 to 50 per cent. EXTRA GDDD VALUED.

Work Continues Unremittingly In the Con gresslonal nnd Senatorial Canvasw Though the sun heated up tbe air several degrees yesterday in recognition of the coming summer, the added caloric had no effect in abating the energies of the North side politicians. Both in the Congressional and Senatorial canvass there was any quan tity of work done. There was also a largo and varied assortment of claims and reports to select from; and, as usual, it was accord ing to the sympathies of the party inter viewed that opinions went. The drilt of opinion since Colonel Bayne's ' return has been toward the presumption that he has got his forces in shape, and'will pull out a winner." The strongest sortofasser tions to this effect were made freely'on Tues day nnd yesterday, both by the Colonel and by his supporters. But on the other hand Shiras and his supporters were lully as con fident in their expressions. Their claims yesterday were as strong as at any time be Jore; and they appeared to be working at hard, if not harder, than ever. Both the Bayne and Shiras backers were active through the day. Colonel Bayne was re ported as having laid in an interview that he ould be "an easy winner," while Mr. Shiras was not less frank in declaring his belief in his own success. A choice variety of literature has been scattered over the dis trict much of it of a personal sort The Senatorial contest between Neeb and Bntan is developing no less activity than the Congressional. John Neeb is putting in his most powerful efforts. Beiiorts come) from his backers that one bet of $500, mads by a Bntan chief, had been taken by Neeb'a supporters, and that the latter had $3,000 besides which they were willing to stake, but did not find takers. Notwithstanding these signs, the Butan people still keep up their preparations with unabated vigor. From the earnestness shown by all the can didates so far in standing by their guns, it is not supposed that any concessions will ba made until the actual vote at the primariea determines the winners.
