dopor wa born In Dunfurinilns, HcpHund,
on November 35, 183S. His fatlior was a
weaver. In humble circumstances, wio,wtb
his family, omlgrated to this country in
1816. and located in Allegheny City,
Audrew began to roako his own way la the
world at thoogeof la yean, engaging first
in attending to a small stationary engine,
From this humble start his career has been
steadily upward, until to-day, bo stands as
tbe leading manufacturer of pig iron, steel
rails, and coke In the world, lie has, be
sides, owned and controlled 18 English
newspapers.
He has devoted large suras of money to
benevolent and educational purposes. He
has erected commodious swimming baths for
the use of the people of hi. native town, and
has also given to it f 10,000 for the establish
ment of a free library. Ho gave $60,000 to
Bellevue Hospital Medioal College. He
has tendered tbe city or Pittsburg f000,000

pose, beside establishing free libraries at
various places for tho benefit of his em
ployes. Notwithstanding the extensive
business enterprises in which he is engaged,
he baa found time to devote to literary labor.
He is a frequent contributor to periodicals,
and is the author of three books, "An Amer
ican Four-in-Hand in Britain," "Bound
the World" and "Triumphant Democracy;
or Fifty Years March of the Bepublic."
In consideration of the gift tbe Councils

The Allegheny Observatory was founded
in 1860 by the snbscriptlons of citizens, in
duced to promote the undertaking by the
exertions of Mr. L. Bradley, to whom the
inception of publio interest in the plan was
due. A building was erected, and a large
equatorial telescope was procured, when
peouniary difficulties arose to hinder im
mediate farther progress. In 1866 the dona
tion of a large sum by the late William
Thaw, of Pittsburg, with aid from others,
freed the Observatory from debt, and fur
nished means for a partial endowment,
whose inc'ome should supply its more urgent
future current needs. At th e same time tbe
original contributors were induced, at the
solicitation of Dh & Woods, to convey ibelf
title in tbe properly to the ttUsteeS ot tbe

tbe trustees, in 1807, invited S, V. Langley
to assume tbe olllco of director; but it was
not until 1801) that tbe equipment was in
sucli a state of lorwardness as to permit sys
tematic observation, such as bas since been
uninterruptedly maintained.
The Observatory is situated on tbe high
ground Just north of the most populous part
of tho city of Allegheny, about 4S0 feet
above the Ohio river and 1,100 feet above
sea level. The original building was 72
feet In length and consisted of a prlnolpal
story and basement, tbe facade looking
toward the south, and being divided into a
central dome with two wings. Additions
have been made from time to time, and the
newer part, which adjoins the eastern wing,
extends in a northerly direction 88 feet. The
material is brick, excepting the "dark
room," or physical laboratory, for investiga
tions in light and beat, which is of wood.
The revolving dome (having an internal di
ameter ot 20 teet; is of wood and iron.
FIBST-CLASS EQUIPMENTS.
Beneath the dome is the principal instru
ment, the equatorial, of 13 inches aperture
(with an excellent objective by Clarke, the
mounting being by Fitz, of New York),
with hour circle, reading to seconds of time,
declination circle reading to ten seconds ol
arc, and clock movement controlled by
Bond's system. The instrument has also a
position filar micrometer, polarizing solar
eye piece, star spectroscope with two prisms
oi Huggins' pattern, a large and a small
grating spectroscope, and accessories for at
taching a reflecting telescope (employing no
lenses whatever) for special beat researches
for attaching an optically plane mirror to
the polar axis (thus forming a Fahrenheit
heliostat), and for converting the inverted
telescope into a great equatorially mounted
spectroscope.
In the western wing is the transit-room,
containing an instrument of four-inch aper
ture by Sltnnis, a staudard barometer by
Green, the sidereal clock by Frodsham, and
the principal mean-time clock by Howard.
Both clocks, as well as the observer at the
meridian instrument, or the equatorial, can
be placed in electric connection with the
rest of the building, and also with the Hues
of telegraph connecting the Observatory with
tho city, so that beats of the clock ca'n at a
few moments' notice be transmitted to any
part of the country those of tbe sidereal
clook for the determination of longitude,
and those of the mean-time clock for sup
plying time to near or distant olties and to
railroads.
In the small hall conneoting this room
with tho dome is a stand for tho galvano
meter when this is used In connection with
tbermo-eleotrlo apparatus, attached to the
equatorial in differential measurements of
the heat from different parts of tho sun.
From this hall access Is also had to the
self-registering nnd other thermometers. In
the east wlugli the room containing the
ohronograpb, various pieces of cleotrlo ap
paratus, a third oloek, and chronometers. It
Is occupied by tbe assistant iu obarge of th.
time servlot.
TUB BUX 0TUDIXD.
Tin nortli wlug contains the private study
of the dlrootor, the library (whioh has also
been used a. a workroom and study for one
of ths assistants), nud, in an exloiiilon (oon
itruoled In 1881, ut tbe oost nf Mr. William
TIibw, with tbs exception ol f 600 contributed
by Dr. O. U. Hussy), a sleeping room, a
small workshop, an uloovo fitted up with a
cabinet of shelves and drawers ol Instru
ments, and the "dark room," or pliyilosl
laboratory, The latter is provided with two
tons tables, on which are mounted galvan
ometers ol great Uellcaoy. and three slono
piers iu line with eaoh other, on whioh are
placed various Instruments far researches
in solar physloi, whloli do not form part of
the equipment pioper of the Observatory.
Tbe principal ol these, the tneqtrobalumeter
(constructed from designs of tho director lor
tbe study of invisible radiations) stands in
the center of tbe room, and receives sunlight
through an aperture in the north wall from
tbe mirror of a large Fouoault slderostat.
This last important instrument is placed
upon a pier of masonry outside the building,
but connected with it by a platform, and
protected from the weather by a "rolling
house." It carries n 12-Inch optically
plane slivered glass mirror, by Clarke, und
was made by Hilger, of, London. It is in
constant use.
Tbe equatorial is mainly used in the
stndy of the sun's surlace, of which dally
drawings on a scale of eight inches to the
solar diameter have been made for several
years. Beside these drawings, others on a
much larger scale have been made, on fa
vorable occasions, by tbe aid of the polar
izing eye-piece. Tho larger part have never
been published, but some of them have fur
nished valuable information in regard to
tbe minute structure ol the solar photo
sphere. Besesrches upon the relative
thermal, luminous and actinic intensities of
different parts ol the sun's disk, have been
carried on with thermopiles and special op
tical devices; and these are now being
greatly extended by the use of the new bolo
metrio und spectroscopic apparatus.
TIME SISTBIBUTIOIT,
A mention of tbe Observatory's work
would be incomplete wltbont some account
of its system of time-distribution introduced,
by Prof. Langley in 1869. Previous to that
date, time had been sent in occasional in
stances from American observatories for
publio use, but In a temporary or oasual
manner. The Allegheny system, inaugur
ated in that yea-. Is believed to be tho
parent of the present ones used in this coun
try, In that it was, so far as is known, the
5fl "eu,r and ytematio system of tlme
dutrlbution to railroads and oitles adopting
it as an official standard. Two especially
constructed lines of telegraph connect with
the munioipal offices in Pittsburg and Alle
gheny, with the telegraph lines of the Wes
tern Union Telegraph Comnany, and with
private lines of the railroads.
A turret clock in the City Hail of Pitts
burg has been provided with electrical
mechanism, which enables it to be regulated
from the Observatory, so that its movement
may be made synchronous with that of tho
princiDal mean time standard there, whioh
" corrected by nightly observations.
The electric mechanism of the distant
turret clock causes a stroke upon a heavy
bell above the summit of the lower to be
given with exact precision at the first second
of every third hoar, so that it is audible
throughout the city. The mechanism of
the same turret clock is arranged so that the
pendulums of clocks In any distant police,
fire alarm, or other municipal offices, can be
controlled by it and compelled to move
synchronously with its own; and at the
same time it can, if desired, automatically
report its own time upon the electric record
ing apparatus at the Observatory. The
automatic signals of the Observatory clock
are rendered audible in these offices, and in
the still more distant stations along the
lines of the railways, by simple pieces of
telegrapblo apparatus known as "sounders,"
which are placed beside their own regulating
clocks, and enable them to give these latter
an astronomical preoislom

manent electric connection with tin Observ
atory, but, their managers having adopted
its time as the ofllolal standard, their cm
cloves are instructed to malco regular com
parisons with It; and for this purpose, dur
ing a certain time every day, the ordinary
transmission of time ceases while the wires
are engaged in transmitting tbo beats of tbe
Observatory olook.
To enumerate all tho different railroads
thus adopting tho observatory time would
be too long; but to give an idea of tho early
extent and use whioh has been made of it,
It may be mentioned that in 1872 these were
grouped into three systems the Southern,
Including originally seven railroad com
panies, and extending 1,150 miles; tbe
Eastern, including 17 associated companies,
2.000 miles; and the Northern, Including 18
companies, 1,563 miles. This aggregate of
4,713 English miles did not even at that
time represent the whole use of the observa
tory by railroad companies, since only those
which have officially instructed their em
ployes to adopt its time as their standard
were included in this estimate.
Over the network of railroad lines uniting
tbe Atlantic, through the Middle States,
with the Western lakes, all trains are
moved, and all business carried on, by time
primarily derived from asingle clock, whose
beats, by the repeating instruments of the
telegraph lines, are virtually made audible
at least once a day over a considerable part
of the country. The advantages of so sim
ple and accessible .means of regulating the
traffio through a large portion of tbe conti
nent, are obvious; and as It is not only of
important advantage in other respects to tbe
companies employing it, butjby diminishing
the chances ot accident in traveling to con
tribute largely to the publio safety, the Ob
servatory has seen with pleasure the use
made of it in this interesting application of
the processes of an exact soience to the gen
eral welfare, the more as it is in no way in
compatible with the steady pursuit of other
and purely scientific duties.
OTHEBS ADOPT THE SYSTEM.
For the benefit of any future writer of tbe
history of the subject, ft may be stated, that
in 1870 the Observatory had already in ex
tended operation the system ot time distribu
tion above described; that about 1873 the
director at Cambridge, alter conference with
the writer (Prof. Langley, 1881), introduced
substantially tbe same provisions for con
necting Harvard College Observatory with
the New England roads: and that about the
same time tho Washington Observatory,
which bad previously sent signals In a
limited and desultory manner, commenced
to do so in emulation of tbe new system.
More recently, observatories all over the
country have introduced like conneotions,
In many instancos directly seeking informa
tion as to the system first introduced here.
While ordinary observations of precision
are not neglected, the present director, con
sidering tbe advantage of giving particular
attention to somoono portion of astronoinicnl
soience, has aimed to make tho Observatory
principally useful In physical astronomy,
and particularly Iu solar rtioarohei. To
this fruitful field of labor Its work Is likely
to be given chiefly, in the future ai In the
past) but It Is growing increasingly difficult
to carry on stioli investigations In a site now
more than half ringed about with manufac
tories, and the removal of the
Observatory to a purer air will soon
beoome a necessity, Already, in 1881,
the prosecution of the most Important re
leuroli booauio Impossible from this cause)
and a spoolal expedition was undertaken
from the Observatory to the summit of
Mount Whitney In the Blerrn Nevada, to
completo It. The prlnolpal means lor tbo
Instrumental outfit wern furnished by tbe
late Mr. William Thaw, of Pittsburg; but
very essential aid In transportation was ob.
tallied Irom the War Department through
General W. B. Jlazen, olilef signal officer of
the United States army, under whose offl.
clal direction it proceeded in the writer's
charge, A full account ol the means and
results of this expedition will appear this
year (1884), in a volume printed at the
Government press.
1'BOP. LANOfcET'S O BSEBVATIONB.
The above article was penned by Prof.
Lansloyin 1884. In concludlng.lt he says:
It will appear from all that lias preceded,
that, In tbe IS years since the first equip
ment, tho Observatory has not been inac
tive; and it may perhaps be felt that tbe re
sults it has reached, and tbe work it has ac
complished, have beeryeuph as the citizens
of tbe great industrial centers in which it is
placed have cause to regard as not discredit
able to them.
I must recall in this connection the re
grettable fact, that, in these wealthy cities,
there are not only no museums of art, no
libraries of reference, no collections of
scientific material, but in general, none of
those aids to the investigator whioh are to )
uo luunu in so many younger ana smaiier
places; so that an observatory (which lives
among such things as its natural medium,
and depends upou their association) has
here to furnish out of its own means almost
everything outside of its actual apparatus
that tbe ordinary resources of American
civilization would provide for it in any
laJe American city but Pittsburg.
This Observatory is an exotio in this com
munity; and that it has been maintained at
all during the time I have mentioned,mIght
?if P,VnaP npposed to be due to the fact
that it represents th nt Wat .fcnnn.l tnr
contribution to eoience, In return fortoibj
H7P WBWSK
practical results of soience on which the
prosperity of an industrial community is
founded.
SHOULD BE ENCOTJBAOED.
But during these IS yean it should be
better known than it is, not only that its ex
istence has been a constant struggle with
poverty (its income bas at no time till with
in tbe past year reached one-fifth that of
other American observatories whose reputa
tion abroad is similar) but that this long
struggle, during which it bas been
forced to earn the means to carry on its re
searches has never brought it (always with
exceptions already gratefully noted) tbe
contribution of a single dollar from an in
dividual in the community in whioh it
exists. It may perhaps be said that this
fact is not publicly known; and that it need
only be known to be a fact no longer.
I could wish, then, to see better evidence
of the community's liberality in the future
toward this Observatory, for the community
will continue, I nope, to have cause to
think it a snbjeot of just local pride; and I
can. hardly be wrong in speaking with this
frankness to respected citizens of Pittsburg
and Allegheny, who are interested, hot
only In Its past, but in Its future.
Since the above was written Prof. Langley
has been awarded tbe highest astronomical
gift at the disposal of the United States
Government. Prof. Very, who ably assisted
bim during his labors In Allegheny, now
ably directs this celebrated Observatory.
The library of the Observatory now con
tains about 1,600 volumes; but this is still
very insufficient, as this number must take
the place, to this Observatory, of all the
great publio libraries, belonging to cities
elsewhere, to which other observatories have
access.

along the west side of Darragh street to the
Allegheny river, at the former outlet of tbe
Pennsylvania Canal, by Sylvanus Lothrop,
James Anderson and Henry Blake in the
years 1820 and 1827. Mr. Blake sold his
interest to Captain William Stewart and
removed to Greenup county, Ky., having
there purohaied two furnaces and a forge
from the Messrs, Shreves. Messrs. Lothrop,
Anderson and Stewart sold out their Interest
in 1834 to John Blssell, William Morrison
and Edward W." Stephens.
The mill, having been constructed for tbe
exoluslve use of Juniata blooms, was ex
tended by tbe latter firm to the manu
facture of iron by the puddling and
boiling process, and was the first ooiling
furnace erected in Allegheny county.
Here, too, was also erected the first coffee
mill squeezer, under the personal superin
tendence of the patentee, Mr. Burden, of
New York.
The manufacture of iron, nails and steel
of the lowest grade, was successfully car
ried on by the latter firm and their suc
cessors, until the year 1859, when the site
becoming too limited for tbe growing de
mands ot the trade, and the war of tbe
Rebellion threatening in the near foture, it
was deemed advisable to dismantle tbe
works and wind up the business. The
machinery was sold to Messrs. Eeis, Brown,
Berger and James Ward and was removed
to Niles, O.

COTTON FACTORY RIOTS.
An Early Labor Difficulty In Alecfaeny Tha
Girls Strnek on Jaly 31, 1848, and
Assaulted Their Overseers Exciting
Scenes. y
After the passage of the 10-hoor law, the
cotton faotories closed, the owners asserting
there was no money in tho business and that
tbey could not successfully compete with
Eastern factories running 13 hours. Thegirls
for some time were idle, and tbe wolf at tbe
door decided many of them to go back to
work on the old time, thinking there
would be no opposition in their doing so.
But tbey were soon undeceived, many of
those who had agreed with them changing
their minds, and when the Penn mills
started, a crowd, mostly girls,
surrounded the entrance to the mill,
demanding the discharge of those
at work. When their demand was refused,
they attacked the building, forcing their
way inside and driving the employes out,
beside breaking some of tbe machinery.
The girls captured Mr. Kennedy, one of the
owners, and tbe crowd cried, "Drown him I
drown biml" They were hurrying him down
the river bank when he was rescued.
, Tbe Infuriated girls then formed in pro
cession, marching from factory to factory.
Ths police were powerless. The sheriff
(Forsy the) could do nothing. Mr. Arbuckls
In attempting to escape was caught at the
factory gate, and before he could get inside
the building was covered with mud. Mud
was the weapon ol the girls, and there was
plentylbflt.

bsnvtllar 10. 1843.
Frank Johnston and tils eelebratcd brass
band, luring performed successfully for
several evonlngs before a Pittsburg audience,
wero Invited by some ol tbe leading "Wash
ingtonlans" of Allegheny to ,glve a series
of concerts in the "Ark." With their
acoustomed generosity, they readily com
piled. These concerts were to Inure to the
benefit of the temperance cause. On Tues
day evening tbey gavo their first concert;
and on this occasion a large crowd of men
and boys gathered about the doors and
windows, and by their riotous conduct did
all in their power to mar the entertainment
of tbe evening, and convert tbe "harmony
of sweet sounds" into terrible discords.
Notwithstanding these outside demonstra
tions, tbe music went on, failing, however,
by its soothing influence to calm the savages
without.
Although tbe authorities did everything
In their power to suppress the tumult, yet
the ringleaders of the atrocious outrage upon
these peaceful and unoffending colored cit
izens were permitted to escape the penalty
of a broken law.
After the close of the entertainment, and
while tbe members of the band were on their
way to their lodging, they were set upon by
the mob and ruthlessly assaulted with such
missiles as the assailants could lay their
hands upon, together with rotten eggs pre
viously provided for the occasion. Frank
Johnston, the leader, was slightly wounded,
and three or four of his band seriously hurt
about tbe head, so much so that they were
confined to their rooms for several days on
account of the injuries received.
It was a happy thing for all, especially
for the ringleaders of the mob, that there
were no lives taken; for they hurled their
missiles with murderous recklessness, if not
with murderous intent And when the fact
is taken into consideration, that this gentle
manly band gave no provocation for the as
sault, but on the contrary were devoting
their time and talents for the promotion of a
good cause, the outrage appears all tbe more
aggravating, and it was regarded by all law
abiding citizens with indignation.
Franlc Jonnston was wen considered one
of tbe best cornet players In tbe United
SUtes; he and his company having made
the tour of Europe, performed before
crowned heads, and having given concerts
in all the principal cities of the South and
Southwest, were highly appreciated, where
ever thty performed, for their gentlemanly
manners, and artistio delineation of charac
ter of the Southern negro; and ths first in
sult received was on the occasion of their
visit to Allegheny.
Aotive measures were immediately adopted
to bring the authors of the outrage to jus
tice. There were two arrests made, who
proved, during the trial of the case, that
they were culpable only In being present
among tbe rioters, apparently taking no ao
tive part In the assault. In consideration
ol this faat, a verdict of not guilty was ren
dered, and that tha delendants pay the costs
of prosecution. In view of the latter, a mo
tion was mada for a new trial, whioh never
oamo up for argument.
By invitation of the citizens, Mr. John
ston and his company gave another conoort
at tbe Ark on tbs following Saturday even

passed off without disturbance or interrup
