The organization known in and about
Pittsburg as the "United Hunting, Fishing
nnd CatnpiDg Clubs" is almost extinct.
This may be a surprise to many people, but
it is none the less true. Such clubs as the
Pittsburg Hod aud Gun Club, the Lotus
and the Keystone Clubs have quietly
dropped out of membership, and there is
now nothing left of the once lamous
"United" but a few small clubs. The almost
total destruction of the "Unitea" concerns
tuonsands of people in Pittsburg and counties
adjacent to Allechcnv couuty. The camping
and hunting season has just ended, and after
all the excitement of the excursions there is a
very strong resrjjt that the general organiza
tion is likely to go out ot existence. It has
done scrvice.and good service, during its opera
tions, anil because it could not do something
beyond t'ie law of the land the hig clubs have
lettit. A prominent member ot the Pittsburg
Bod and Gun Clun said IjM evening:
"I lear our general organization is gone. Be
cause it cuulu not get special railroad rates in
opposition to the inter-State commerce law,

really dead. It has done good, because we now
have a ffsh warden and orlier methods or pro

would hate never been had the United not
existed. I hope that the big clubs that have
dropped out of membership w ill return, because
we can do a great amount of good by being

Chicago Parties Making Extensive Prepara

Chicago, October 7. The Illinois Steel
Company will engage in the manufacture
of tin plate in Chicago. Probably English
and Eastern capitalists will have an im
portant interest in the new business. About
tbe enterprise a reporter yesterday talked
with O. W. Potter, a director in the Steel
Company. He said the company will be
able to roll steel as thin as tin plate. A
large portion of the work will be done by
machinery. The amount of tin plate con
sumed in the country is 360,000 tons an
nually. Ore is now being mined in the
Black Hills, and there will soon be enough
to supply the United States.
Tbe Etta Mining Syndicate and the
Harney Peak Tin Mining Company, with
all their vast claims iu the Black" Hills,
have united and formed the Consolidated
Tin Mining Company of the United States.
This company has now bought up $3,000,000
worth of claims. Of the entire Black Hills
district, which covers about 60 by 150 m
it holds perhaps 25 square miles. It has
army of men at work in the mines, with
payroll ot 30,000 per month.

does from tbe pivotal point in the national
tariff fight, is an authority of much import
ance relative to the McKinley-Warwick
contest. When asked about the prospects
in his district Mr. Trover said:
"A desperati effor is being made to elect
McKinley already. Money by the cartload is
being circulated Ithronghout the district, an
enormous amount having been furnished by
the Bepnblican committee. If money conld do
it McKinley would be elected, but in my
opinion nothing can save him. Stark county
may go Bepublican by abont 200. but I think it
will be about an even result there. Medina
will go Bepublican by about 1.200. Wayne will
show a Democratic majority of 600, while old
Holmes will come up smiling with abont 2,000
majority for Warwick, Why, Holmes gave
Hancock 2.2C0 majority. You will see by these
figures that Warwick will receive a majority of
at least 1,200, according to my calculations.

A WEB OF EVIDENCE
BEING WOVEN AROUND WEST,- THE AL
Letters and Discoveries That Corroborate

miliar With the Crouch Home and Knew
Where the Money Was Kept:
:SFECIAI. TELEGUAM TO TUE DISPATCH.1
Washington, Pa., October 7. The
West murder trial was resumed at 9 o'clock.
Dr. Prench testified that all three of
the Crouch family were killed by
blows on the neck that had sev
ered the vertebra?. Justice McCormick,
of Uentleysvlllo, testified that he had charge of
the inquest held after the murder; that the
search of the house revealed $316 60 hidden in
different places; that there were some evi
dences of the house having been searched.
The letter found in West's trunk, a tender
missive to Miss Anna Brnndage, was presented
In evidence. Alpheus Crawford testified that
the prisoner had been treated as a friend by
the murdered family. Tho testimony of other
witnesses tended to prove that West knew of
the sums of money kent in the honse.
Charles Hoover, ot Allegheny City, said that
he saw West at the Allegheny market the 12th
of May. West had presented ,an order from
his uncle, Basil Barker, for Si 50. He paid him
tbe money, and the order afterward proved to
be a forgery. Tbis was corroborated by Barker
'Squire McCormick, who had impaneled the
Jury. gave some interesting testimony con
cerning the discoveries at the house, and cor
roborated much testimony that had been given
previously. Witness testified that the search
made in tbe honse revealed abont $346 in money
and almost $2,000 in notes and papers.
Squire McCormick's testimony was followed
by some important testimony from the fore
man of the Coroner's jnry. A. T. Bayard. Ho
noticed a chnrn partly filled with bntter and
milk at the honse of the Crouches on the morn
ing after the murder. This churn was sitting
just outside the kitchen door. Mayor Hous
ton, of Monongahela City, testified to having
seen the contents of a trunk that
West bad taken with him to Beaver
Falls. Other witnesses testified tbat
West was acquainted with the Crouch famiiy
and' had frequently been at the house several
times in recent years. West accomoanied An
drew Crouch to the house and got money with
which to pay the fitted hands. He knew where
the familv kept their money, and had often
said he liked to work for tbem because they
had plenty of money.
Testimony was introduced Oy persons from
Sewickley to show that West had worked there
during a part of Am-il and May; that he had
drawn money from his employer and left In the
afternoon of May 8. His course was then fol
lowed to Monongahela City. He was accom
panied bv Annie Brundage and a little boy. The
two latter persons were left at the Milgus
House, and West was seen going to Bentleys
ville on foot.
Testimony was then introduced showing
that tracks had been mide about the Crouch
residence, which led from west's home to the
homestead, and from there by a roundabout
route to Monongahela City. There West met
Annie Brundage again. The shoes that were
found in Wen's trunk at Beaver Falls were
identified, and it was conclusively proven that
the tracks were made by the shoes or ones ex
actly like tbem.
Much testimony was introduced concerning
tbe motive for the perpetration of tbe crime.
In tbe afternoon it was proved that Westhad
been seen going to Monongahela City on the
night of the murder; that he shunned people,
and that he lied about his errand to Bentloys
ville. Thomas Coyle was the principal witness
up to the hour of adjournment, who had iden
tified West on his way to Monongahela City.
