. , . ' - & The Borough License List Be tween the Heavy Mill stones of the Court. PUTTING IN A FULL WEEK. To-Daj's the First Saturday Session of the License Court. EDKAL APPLICANTS ARE ROASTED, The Judges Having All Kecords at Their ringers' Ends. TKOUELE ABOUT FILMS e IN THE BOSDS Sonic saloon keepers will agree with the hymnal in the statement that "it is not all of life to live nor all of death to die," as they find that their troubles are not always over when a license is granted. The Judges have been as strict as Portia was respecting the bond held ly Shylock in the case of Shylock vs Antonio. The candidate must not only Eire a good bond, but the most minute details are exacted. No matter if the bondsmau be an Astor, a Vanderbilt or a Gould, and though his signature be as familiarly known as that of John Hancock was in the days when most patriots had the Declaration of Indepen dence framed and hung in their drawing rooms, it would not pass muster without the attesting witness signature also. Some ap plicants' are doubtless somewhat exasper ated, but they are getting lessons in exact business. Thinks tho More tho Merrier. One man who wouldn't give his name for publication, was disposed to be profane, and sarcastically remarked that it might be well to have each signature attested by several hundred witnesses, as in the ease of death at present the signature must be proven, if there be a controversy, and the presence of a multitude of names on the bond would suggest the witnesses most likely to be useful. Those who have had trouble so far are "William H. Leahy, James P. Giffen, William F. and James P. "Walsh, George Lehrman, Joseph Grimm and Samuel Bennett. All but two came through, as object iocs to the rest were technical and could be remedied. The two must find other bondsmen than those offered. There is one thing certain and that is if the Licence Court expects to finish its work by the 1st of May, the Judges will have to make better time than they did yesterday, as the work was awfully slow. The License Court will go on as usual to-day, and the boroughs will be finished up. No township cases will be heard before Monday. During the afternoon George Deatz, a Twenty-eighth ward applicant who has been laid ud with the grip, was heard and passed a fair examination. Must Hear Forty Cases a Day. There were 218 retail applications to hear when Court opened yesterday morning. In order to finish next week 41 esses per day must be heard. Before the first case was called, as usual the Court and Mr. Christy held a consultation. In the case of George Jeffries, of the First ward, Homestead, a witness for whom, an attachment was issued was brought into court. The officer who had the attachment allowed one of the witnesses to come by him self, and the result was he failed to show up. The officer was severely rebuked by the Court. The witness who was in Court was sworn. lie is Theodore Sample and he testi fied he had bought beer in Jeffreys' whole sale house :iud drank it on the premises, Jeffreys furnishing the glass. The witness said he had been in Court when his name was called. Judge "White said: "Well, you will have topav the costs." The first on the regular list was Michael Malopey. Heisel street and the Pittsburg, Virginia and Charleston Railroad. He has a license, and has been running a hotel for some years. "You have a small room back of the bar?" "Well, I haven't anything to do with that. I leased a small piece of ground, and the agent of a brewery built a shed on it and kept his beer there." "It is reported that minors and men of in temperate habits get drink there?" "Well, I can deny that with a clear con science." "How much do you take in at the bar?" "The highest is flGOaday; the average about 550." , Must lie Careful About Drinking. Owen Murphy, on Dickson street, has had a license for two years. He has 15 rooms, 14 boarders and feeds from 25 to 40 per day. He had trouble in his place about a man named Maloney, who was refused a drink. His record was good. ""Were you not advised to quit drink ing?" 'Well, my doctor told me I must he care ful?" "Didn't he tell you if you didn't quit drinking it would kill you?" "No, sir." Charles McGlnley, 519 Dickson street, had Judge Magee's son to help him get a license. The applicant is a new man, and is unmarried. His father, who owns the property, was retus,ed in 1889, and the ap plicant in 1888. "What does your father do?" "Nothing, sir. He has done his share of work." Katherine Nau, the first woman to apply in Homestead, wants a license at Dickson and Sixth avenue. She has 20 rooms in her home, 6 boarders and 16 steady inealers. She has a license now and takes 'in at the bar 540 a .lay, on Saturdays 5100 and on pay days ?174. "How many persons do you trust?" "About eignt or ten." "The other saloon keepers in Homestead agree to quit treating and you refused to do it?" "Well, we have quit now." "You quit since you heard the racket be ing made in court about treating," said Judge White. "Your house has a bad reputation. You have refused to keep people over night." J"ot Neat Enough for Her House. "Never but one, and 1J was too dirty to let in my clean house. I have the most ac commodation in Homestead." "The worst thing about your place is your treating and your increased bar trade by leason of your treating," said the Court, Her attorney, John F. Cox, said: "I can bring 100 of the best citizens of Home stead to show she keeps the best house in Homestead." Patrick O'Neil is a new man, and wants a license on Bixth avenue, between Ann and McCIure avenues. He has been refused for two years, and had much trouble to convince he Court that he had any more reasons now than when refused. Ellen O'Brien was a very different woman from th other female applicant. She was a large woman, with a big, pleasant voice, and who-answered tho questions promptly, she withdrew her application for a wholesale license. "Why did you apply for both?" "Well, to be honest, I thought if I was refused one I would have a chance for the other." She has been refused three times, but was full of confidence. She claims she has the only restaurant on Eighth avenue. The Court read the names of several applicants on the street and asked her if they didn't keep restaurants. She answered emphat ically, "No, sir, not one." Patrick J. Quinn wants a license at Fifth avenue and City Farm lane. The house is owned by John F". Cox, his attorney. He was soon disposed or. The witness admitted being In a fight three weeks ago Sunday. "Well," he said, "a man and I had some words in front of my gate. He called me some names and I knocked him down, his friend came up and I knocked him down, then his second friend came up and I knocked him down. Then I walked away." Scattered Them All Around. "You laid them all out, scattered them around and then left them," said Judge' White. The applicant certainly looked as if he could take care of himself. John Itushe, Jr., has a license now at Eighth avenue and City Farm lane. "The great objection to your place is that you have a crowd of loafers there," said the Court. "Do you trust?" "I did the first part of the year, but we all quit it in Homestead." Bridget Eattigan said she was busy fixing her house, expecting to get a license. She was refused last year, because, she said, her bouse was too small, and this year sue made it bigger. "How comes it that yon are known as Speak-Easy Bridget?" asked the Court. "I don't know, sir. They lie if they say so. I never run a speak-easy." "Wasn't there a speak-easy in your house?" "Yes: but a man named Robinson kept It. I didn t live there and had no connection with it." Charles Strigel applied for a license at 223 Sixth avenue. He was very German and had difficulty in making tbe Court under stand. He has been refused three times. Philip Simon. 519 Eighth avenue, is a new man. He applied for both wholesale and retail, hut withdrew his wholesale ap plication, and the chances are he will get neither. Not a Hungarian Kins;. "A great many Hungarians live in the yard back of your place?" "Yes, a great many." "Are-you a Hungarian King, too?" asked Judge Magee. . "No, sir, I'm a Russian." Nicholas Schwartz, of Eighth avenue, has a license. The applicant was very positive in his answers and made a good impression. Peter J. Scbmitt, 301 Sixth avenue, has a wholesale license. "You had a wholesale license and carried on a retail business?" "Well, not exactly." "You had drinking m a back room on ths premises?" "Yes, sir." "The men wonld get a bottle of beer, put the account down on a piece of paper, go into the back room and drink it?" "No, sir; I marked it down." "Well, anyone who wanted could drink in the back room?" "No, sir; not everybody." "You belong to a boat and drinking club?" "I belonc to a boat club." "Oh, well, that is the same; all these boat clubs are drinking clubs." Thirteen cases were heard at the morning session. Work or the Afternoon Session. Peter Trautman, 333 Eighth avenue, has had a wholesale license during the past year. The 'upper part of his house is used as a public hall, couneili holding their meetings there. VJ, Judge White Our experience is that it is a very bad thing to have a saloon and a hall where lodges meet combined. There is al ways sure to be trouble of some kind. The applicant admitted that he allowed some drinking on his premises. Thomas Watkins, corner of Heisel street and Pittsburg, Virginia and Charleston Railroad, has a license at present, and thought that he had obeyed the law. Knoxville borough was next, with two applicants, Henrv Brandt, corner of Aman da avenuo and Zara street; and Elizabeth Fallert, corner of Amanda and Arlington avennes. Brandt has a license, and claimed to have obeyed the law. Mrs. Fallert has had a transfer license. The applicant con fessed that her 20-year-old son sometimes tends bar, which did not please the Court very well. Joseph Kelly was called at this point, and he testified that he drank beer at George Jeffrey's wholesale house, in Home stead, but he never paid for any. The reason the applicant did not apper in court on Thursday was because he didn't have money to pay his fare. The Court thought the reason was because he paid too much for beer. Mansfield had four applicants, John Cun ningham, Main street; James Gallagher, Main street; Lewis Hurd, corner of Main and Chestnut streets, and Patrick Newell, corner of Jane and Mary streets. Cunning ham died on Monday last, and tbe Court re fused to hear the widow. Gallagher has not had a license, and bad a good record, having formerly been postmaster of the town. Hurd has had a license, and claimed to have obeyed the law. Newell is a cripple who has been refused three times. The ap plicant was accused of running a speak easy, and, of course, denied it. The Millvale JAnt Reached. John Bennett, 15 Grant street, was the first Millvale,applicant. Judge White My report is that your house is the worst in Millvale. It is dan gerous for women and children to pass. There are fights, and somebody sent me a copy of a newspaper containing an editorial which gave your house a very bad rtcord. Mr. Bennett I want your Honor to give me a chance. I am an honorable, law abiding citizen, trying to raise a decent family, and if my reputation was as bad as that I would be ashamed to come here and ask the honorable court for a license. Mr. Bennett then made a most emphatic statement as to the condition and character of his honse, and gave some ol the other places quite a racket, stating that parties gotdrunt in other places ana when he re lumed them they wanted to fight. Judce White My report is that your res taurant doesn't amount to very much. Mr. Bennett I will admitthat my res taurant is a very small part of my business, but I am having the place fixed up and will have more room for a restaurant Judge White They also say that you sell to intemperate men? Mr. Bennett I have a list of intemperate people, and I gave it to my barkeeper, and told him not to sell to them. Judge White Suppose aman would come in one day drunk, and the next day came in sober, would you sell to him? Mr. Bennett No, sir, I would not Josiah Cohen made a strong plea for his client, whom he had known for many years. George Dillig, No. 4 Lincoln avenue, is a blacksmith, and was refused last year, gome Fears of a Collusion. Judge White remarked that Barbara Bauerlein's name was on six applicants' bonds and William Banerlein ou two. This looked as though there was a combination wherein tije applicants were to purchase their beer from the Bauerleins. William W. Flocker, No. 4 Grant ave nue, owns and occupies the house he applies for, which is used as a hotel, where 50 meals are served daily. j Judge White Some of your rooms are occupied for playing games? Mr. Flocker No, sir; I do not Judge White E. G. Pearce has mada an affidavit that he gambled In your honse. Mr. Flocker He never gambled in my honse. Judge White You have a ladies' en trance. Mr. Flocker Yes, sir; it is used by ladies who want meals and don't want to go through the barroom. Judge White And some go there who don't want meals? Mr. Flocker No, sir; they do not John Krueger, Jr., 61 Hooker street, has a license, and claimed the only trouble was in refusing men drinks. Then a little "scrap" might ensue. Judge White Do you call hitting a man on the ear with a shovel and nearly killing him, a little scrap? Mr. Krueger That was two years ago. Judge White You belong to a singing society where they drink beer on Sunday and play cards? Mr. Krueger Yes, that's so. I ain't going to tell a lie about it Judge White That's rieht; tell the truth. Attorney Price took the applicant to task for selling to minors, which was denied. John Callahan was called and testified that last summer there was a great deal of trouble about the applicant's bouse. J. C Eeed, Burgess of Millvale, testified that drunken men went in and out of Krueger's place; also that "a man named Thomas Brown, who was an habitual drinker, frequents the 'place. Thomas Brown was called and stated that he visited the place occasionally, but does not make it his headquarters; also that Mr. Krueger had refused him when he was intoxicated. Joseph Nuller, Meade alley, has had a license and claimed he obeyed the law other than to trust a little. Mrs." M. C. Beder, 54 Sedgwick street, stated that she has six children besides her father and mother to support, her husband being in Dixmont She had a license in 1889, but was refused last year and has been keeping a cigar store and selling soft drinks since, but sold no beer.

Henry Wagner, 58 Lincoln avenue, is in the grocery business, but does not mix beer with his groceries. John Wingo'd, 62 Grant avenue, was a one armed applicant He drives a beer wagon for Michael Enz.

He admitted de livering beerjto houses where there were no license', but did not know that they were speak-easies. Joseph Fischer, corner of Stanton avenue and German street, also drives for Mr. Enz. The Court refused to hear this applicant, as there is no such a place as German street The name should have been Sherman street Adam Maner, 79 Grant avenue, is a day laborer, and bis boarders occasionally got some beer, hut he thought that be should not be held ac countable for that. Judge White said that the place was reported as a speak-easy, but this was denied. This applicant answered questions before they were lullyasked. This made Judge White angry, and he told the applicant not to go on blatherskiting. James W. Osterling, C9 Grant avenue, has a license now, and has four boarders and three mealers. Jndge White That can't amount to a restaurant, and yet you swear in your application that you run a hotel and restaurant It is also reported that your place is dirty and filthy?

A Chance for a Dickens in Common Pleas Court No, 2 The Ayres-Smlth Breach ot Promise Case Up Again Only 850 for a Lacerated Heart Even without a Sam Weller, the breach of promise suit of Mrs. Sarah Ann Avrcs vs. John Wesley Smith in Common Pleas No. 2 before Judge Ewing yesterday, was funnier than that of Bardell vs. Pickwick. Sarah Ann and John Wesley are both resi dents of Mansfield, and the latter is "English, quite English, you know," and a coal miner. Both are of mature years, three score or more, and both had been mar ried previously. A lady named Norton was a witness for theplaintiff,and though she did not recollect hearing Mr. Smith say anything about ducts or about the favorite dish' of Mrs. Cluppins' husband, she did profess to know that Mr. Smith had said he would marry Mrs. Ayres after her probation as a honsekeeper if she suited him. It appeared that she didn't suit and he married another woman. In answer to the defendant's lawyer, Mrs. Norton said she had known evidences of affection to have been furnished by Mr. Smith. When asked by his lawyer if she felt sure she knew symptoms of love when she saw them, Mrs. Norton drew herself up and said contemptuously: "I think I ought to. I've been married twice, once to an Irishman and once to a Dutchman, and I thins: that ought to be ample experience. I guess 1 ought to, know love symptoms." The defendant claimed that Mrs. Ayres had offered him 5200 to marry her, and she admitted that she had offered a bonus, but not that much. She agreed to sell her cow to raise the necessary funds for housekeep ing in comfort. John Wesley Smith inti mated that he might have formed a partner ship with the widow but for fear ot her son becoming a part of tbe family. He insisted that he bought the tickets for their trip to Johnstown to see the flood desolation, "but admitted that Mrs. Ayres had furnished the money. Mr. Smith was strongly disposed to tell his story his own way, and Jndge Ewing finally ordered him to answer the oppos ing lawyer's questions under penalty of be ing committed for contempt, to which Mr. Smith replied: "Fire away. I'll stay with you." This led the Judge to sort ot size him up, and he allowed the matter to drop. In his charge the Judge told the jurv that Mrs. Ayres sought to be allowed enough to pay for her trousseau, bat seemed to in timate that she was well off in escaping her affianced. The jury thought 550 would heal the laceration, and gave a verdict for that amount. Notes From the Courts. In tho two suits of E. Hallett against J. S.

The President Not Afraid to Talk Protection in tbe South. ' FOE THE LAW'S SUPREMACY ALSO. Dixie Still Greets the 1'arty in Crowds and With Cheers. FROM BIRMINGHAM TO LITTLE EOCK MEMPHIS, April 17. The special train bearing the Presidental party ,arrived here this morning at 0 o'olock, after an all night run from Birmingham, Ala., across the northern part of Mississippi. No stops were made in that State, however, and the only incident of the run occurred at Jasper, Ala. That town was illuminated with many bon fires in honor of the President, and nearly 2,500 of the inhabitants gathered at the sta tion to pay their respects. It was 11 o'clock when the train reached there, and the Presi dent, Postmaster General Wanamaker and all the ladies had retired for the night. The people were disappointed at not being able to see the President, but were gratified at being allowed to pass through and inspect the observation car and tbe numerous floral offerings received in Birmingham. Brief speeches were made by Geosge W. Boyd and Russell Harrison, Met by a Memphis Committee. This morning, when the train reached Belleview, a station seven miles from this city, it was boarded by a committee of citi zens from Memphis. A number of ladies accompanied the party, and presented Mrs. Harrison and the other ladies of the Presi dent's party with bouquets of La France rose;. Mayor L. C. Clapp and other municipal officers received the President and party on their arrival in the city. A large crowd, in cluding the local militia, were gathered at the station, and cheered tbe President when he appeared on the platform. The party were immediately assigned to the carriages which awaited them, and driven up Main street to the Merchants' Exchange. The President was introduced to tbe assembled crowd by Mayor Clapp, who welcomed the President on behalf of the city. In responding to the welcoming speech the President said: Mr Fellow Citizens Tbe name of the city of Memphis was familiar to me In my early boyhood. Born and reared upon one of tbe tributaries of the great river upon which your city is locarea, tuese river marts oi commerce were the familiar trading posts of the farmers of the Ohio Valloy. Old-Tlme River Navigation. I well remember wben, on the shores of my father's farm, the old "broad horn" was loaded from the hay press and the corn crib to market with the plantations along tho lower Missis sippi. I remember to have heard from him and the ueizhbors, who constituted the crew of those pioneer crafts of river navigation, ot the perils of these great waters; of tbe snags and caving banks of the lower Mississippi. ,ln those times these States were largely sap plied with grain and forage from the North western States. Hero yon were glvlneyonr attention to one or two great staple products for which you fonnd a large foreign market. I congratulate you that tbe progress ot events has made you not less agricultural, but has di versified your agncniture so that you are not wholly dependent on these great staples for tbe income of your farms. It is a great thing that you are now raising more wheat, more corn, more hogs and cattle; that you are now raising potatoes, and watermelons, and cabbage. Cheers. The benefits of this diversification are very grear, and the change symbolizes more than we at first realize. This change means tbat we are now coming to understand that meanness cannot be predicated of any bonest Industry. I rejoice that yon are addlne to diversified ag riculture diversified manufacturing pursuits; that you aro turning your thoughts to com pressing and spinning cotton, as well as rais ing it. Manufacturers Should He Encouraged. I know no reason why these cotton States, that prodnco 75 per cent of the cotton of tbe world, shonld not spin the greater portion of it. I know no reason why tbey shonld export it as raw material, rather than as a manufactured product holding in their midst the profits of this transformation of raw material to tbe fin ished product. Applause. lhope it maybe so. I see evidence that the people are turning their attention to new industrics,and are bring ing into tbe midst of these farming communi ties a large popnlation of artisans and laborers to consume at your own doors tho products of your farms. I am glad that a liberal government Is mak ing this great waterway to tbe sea safe and ca pable ot an unlnterrnptcd uso. I am glad that it Is here making the shores of your own city convenient and safe, and that It is opening. North and South, an uninterrupted and cheap transportation for tbe products of these lands that lie along this great system et rivers. I am glad that it is bringing you in contaot with the ports ot tbe Gulf.that look out with an inviting aspect toward a great trade in South America that we shall soon possess. I am glad to be lieve tbat these great river towns will speedily exchange their burdens with American ships at tbe mouth of the Mississippi, to be trans ported to foreign ports under the flag: of our country. Qreat chesnng. Plea for tho law's Supremacy. This Government of ours is a compact tl the people to be governed by a majority expressing itself by lawful metbods, Uliers.; Every thing in this country is to be brought to the measure of tho law. I propose no other rule, either as an Individual or as a public officer. I cannot in any degree let down this rnle cries of "No, no," ana cheers' witbont violating my official duty. There roust be no other suprem acy than that of tbe lawful majorities. There fore, I think, while I realize and sympathize with vour difficulties, we must all come at last to this conclusion tbat the supremacy of the law is the one supremacy in this country of onrB. Cheers. Now, my fellow citizens, I thank you for this warm and magnificent demonstration ot your respect, accepting cordially tbe expression of the chief of your city government that you are a. sincere, earnest, patriotic, devoted people. I beg to leave with each nf you the snggestion tbat each in his place shall do what he can to maintain social order and public peace; that the lines here and everywhere shall bo between tho well disposed and the ill disposed. The effort of speech to this immenso throng is too great for mo. 1 beg to assure you tbat 1 carry from tho great r?ar of sentiment no ill will to any. Cheers. A Good Word for Confederates. lamgladtthat the Confederate soldier, con fessing that defeat has brpught him blessings tbat would have been Impossible otherwise, has been taken again into fall participation in the administration of the Government; that no penalties, limitations or other inflictions rest upon him. 1 have taken, and can always take, the hand of a brave Confederate soldier with confidence and respect. Great cheering. I would put all under one yote only, and that Is tbe yoke tbat tbe victors in that struggle bore when tbey went home and laid off their uniforms the yoke of the law and the obliga tion always to obey it. rCheers. Upon tbat platform, without distinction be tween tbe victors and vanquished, we enter to gether upon possibilities as a people that we cannot overestimate. I believe this nation is lifting itself to a new life: tbat this flag shall float on unfamiliar seas, and tbat tbe coming prosperitv will be equally shared by all our people. Prolonged cheering. When the cheering had sdbsided loud calls were made for Postmaster General Wanamaker. He responded, and in a few well-chosen remarks referred in a pleasing manner to the prosperity of the South as evidently increasing. He was followed by Secretary Rusk, after which the public re ception was begun, the President standing in the doorway welcoming the hand shakers. Bound for iattlo Bock. Tbe public receotion was concluded about 11 o'clock, and the party took their car riages and were escorted to the Louisville and NashviHr depot. Here another reception was held by the entire party, a large crowd passing through the train. A number of beautiful floral offerings from private citi zens were plaoed all -'around the train. Governor Eagle and the Commissioners, who arrived this morsinxcJnet the party at. the depot, and will act as escort of the party to Little Bock. At 11:55 the tram passed slowly down the incline to the immense ferry boat of the Little Bock and Memphis Railroad, and at noon, amid tremendous din of whistles, the boat moved slowly front tbe shore, and the Presidental party was well on its way to the Arkansas capital. CHICAGO'S COKE FAMINE. MANY ESTABLISHMENTS SHOBT ON THE COHNELLSVHXE ABTICXE. West Virginia Coke Belling at Bnlnous Figures Inferior Stuff Coming by Roundabout Boutes Manufacturers Anxious for a Settlement of the Strike. :f rECMI. TXLZ-O&AK TO TUB DISPATCHM Chicago, April 17. As the Connellsville coke strike progresses, the supply of coke In the hands of Chicago manufacturers keeps growing beautifully less. The Illinois Steel Company, the largest individual con sumer, still has a large stock on hand and will not be out for a very considerable time. But scores of smaller establishments whose yardroom is limited to 100 and 200 tons, cannot keep on hand a larger supply. Many of them have consumed almost all they have, and are at their wits' ends to know what to do. They must have Connellsville coke, and wire one broker after another only to find there is no such thing as getting it. They then resort to th'e West Virginia coke as a makeshift, and find that this has stiff ened In price up to the highest notch Con nellsville has reached in recent years. If this strike lasts two weeks longer manufac turers will have to face the dilemma of either buying at ruinous figures the inferior article or closing their works. In coke it is very difficult to quote a price from day to day, as is done in most other artioles of merchandise. The railroads have a car service rnle by which they collect stor age at the rate of jl per car per day for every day .a loaded car stands on the track after it has been two days at its destination. As each car contains about 78 tons of coke it can readily be figured out that each day's delay after the first two means an increase in price to the dealer of about 5 cents per ton. Consequently tbe owner is usually in a hurry to dispose of it, and if it has remained on his hands for two days he will usually sell below- its actual value. For tbat rea son sales reported show considerable varia tion in prices. But it can fairly be said tbat West Virginia coke is worth about $5 now, with a bright prospect of climbing to ?5 50 if tbe Frick works do not start within a fortnight. Some coke from tbe Pocahontas district in Virginia is finding its way to this market by way of Knoxville, Tenn., and Cincin nati, but the bigh freight rates prevent it from being a dangerous competitor to the other cokes now in the market WAKEJIAN has visited the boyhood home of Kobort Collyer and will describe it in THE DISPATCH to-morrow. New anecdotes of the famous preacher. DEATH OF ALFRED COREY. A Noted Man Passes Away at Ills Daughter's, in Dravosbnrg. Alfred Corey, father of J. B. Corey, a noted man in days of yore, died night be fore last at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. William Whitaker, at Dravosburg, aged 87 years and 11 days. Mr. Corey was born in New Jersey, but with bis parents moved, when quite young, to New York, near the headwaters of the Allegheny. He learned the business of millwright from his father and built many mills and bridges in tbat section. In 1831 he married Rachel Adams, whose father owned the most of the land on which the city of Franklin, Venango county, is now built. Mrs. Corey died ten years ago. Mr. Corey and his brother Moses built the locks and dams on 11 sections of the Beaver and Sandy Canal in 1839. They built lock and dam No. 2 at Port Perry on the Monongahela river, but the company failed and its suc cessor, the Monongahela Navigation Com pany paid Messrs. Corey 20 cents on the SI. The brothers then dissolved 'partnership, and Alfred, after having made several for tunes, was bankrupted by a man named Walker, father-in-law of the late General James Ekin. Some 30 years ago he was stricken with paralysis and was an invalid the remainder of his life. He once bought at Sheriff's sale tbe Oliver farm and Brad dock's Field, on which Braddock and Du quesne are built, but relinquished them as his brother Moses disapproved of the pur chase. Mr. Corey was a Whig and subsequently a Republican, but when John Sherman failed of nomination at Chicago he (Corey) voted for Cleveland, and liked him so well that he voted for him the second time.

Cincinnati, April 17. E. L. Mattice, a business partner of ex-Treasurer Huston, talked pointedly to-day of the causes that resulted in the resignation of that officer. He said that Mr. Huston had good cause to believe that he should have a place in Harri son's Cabinet, but that the President, after much vacillation, offered him the Treasurer-ship,-and he accepted it against his judg ment Then began a series of petty annoyances, largely in a social way, though Mr. Hus ton was frequently ignored in official mat ters and made to feel that he had no influ ence. When he determined to resign last July it was wholly on account ol snubs given to his wile. The President made promises regarding social matters which were practically ignored. Since February the President and Mr. Huston have not spoken, except wben com pelled to do so, and Huston will let Indiana go as it will next election. Mr. Mattice says Mr, Lemcke failed to become Huston's successor because he had loaned State mouey while Treasurer of Indiana not a criminal offense there, hut thought not to be a good precedent for the Treasurer of tbo United States.

Prospects for Crops in the West More Flat tering Than Ever. . TREASURY PAYMENTS ABE EXCESSIVE tSrKCIAI. TELEOBAil TO THS DlSPATCH-l Ne-w Yohk, April 17. Telegrams to Bradstreets' indicate tbat seasonable weather and improving country roadways had a favorable effect on general trade at Dulutb, Minneapolis, St Paul, St. Louis, Omaha and San Francisco and a few other points, but the gains are conspicuous rather by oontrast with relative dullness in pre ceding weeks than otherwise. Dry goods, hardware and spring clothing have felt the stimulating influence most, and, in some instances drugs, hats and cans, boots and shoes have remained slow of sale. Enbber is steady at less than Para prices. Lumber, with some exceptions (St. Lonis and Minneapolis), has been less active thad bad been anticipated. Cattle are in fair re ceipt at Western markets and higher. Hogs are 10 cents lower. Hog products and other meats remain firm and in active request. Crop Prospects Are Excellent. Crop reports from the Northwest are very favorable, as are those affecting winter wheat, and merchants in the spring wheat region are discounting their bills to a no ticeable extent. Speculators in wheat at San Francisco say that the San Joaquin crop will be short, but this lacks confirma tion. Exports of wheat from San Francisco have been very heavy this week, at high prices, spot commanding 99 cents per bushel, with Europe a ready taker. Wool sales have been slow, with prices tending downward. New-clip wool has reached St. Louis, together with supplies of last year's clip. No improvement in the general business situation is reported from Cleveland, Pittsburg, Cincinnati, Memphis, New Orleans, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York or Boston. Business failures in the United States number 166, against 178 last week, and 166 this week last year. The total from Janu ary 1 to date is 3,831, against 3,892 last year. ' Tbe situation among manufacturers of cotton and of woolen goods is unsatisfactory, print cloth stocks being amon the heaviest on record and prices quite low. There is little actual improvement in the general industrial situation. A few strikes of im portance have been settled and others started. The Coke Strike Weakening. The great coke strike looks as if it were a failure, as more ovens are starting up from day to day. Iron is in a less satisfactory condition than heretofore, with the outlook favoring lower before higher prices. An thracite coal, too, is in smaller request at shaded prices. Copper is steady, but lead and spelter are weaker. Leading money markets report a rather better request for funds during the week. Continued exports of gold excited some base less apprehensions, and rates advanced Irom 34 per cent ou call last week to 38 per cent, but reached to last week's level again. Bank clearings at 57 cities for the week ended April 16 amonnt to $1,133,667,214. a decrease from this week last year of 1 per cent. At 56 cities (New York's total ex cluded) the gain is 1 per cent. Tbe net railway earnings for February show a diminution in volume and ratio of gains. The Pacific companies and Coalers alone account lor a gain equal to tbe net shown by all companies over a year ago. Small grain crops cut earnings of tbe South westerns and Grangers, notably Atchison and Burlington. Trunk line net earnings are also smaller. Tbe total net earnings of 102 companies for February were $12,248,339, a gain over last year of 8.5 percent. The gross gained only 4.6 per cent. Stocks Dull hut Firm and Higher. Share speculation is dull, but firm and advancing ou the crop prospects at home and an unfavorable outlook abroad. Gold shipments, and the possibility of friction between the Gould lines and other Western systems, have ouly produced momentary re action in prices. Exports of wheat (and flour as wheat) from the United States continue heavy. At this rate to June 30 the prospect is for carry ing over reserves, visible and invisible, of 10,000,000 or 12,000,000, a fortnight's sup ply. Stocks of wheat in and out of farmers' hands in the United States and Canada (ex cluding "in farmer's hands" in Canada) are placed at 110,000,000 bushels (with spring wheat planted). Food and (present) export demands are about 32,000,000 bushels per month. Exports of wheat (and flour as wheat) this week equal 2,456,080 bushels, against 2,934,652 bushels last week and 2,146,646 bushels in the second week of April, 1890. The' total exported from July 1 to date is 77,373,221 bushels, against 86,390,703 bushels in a like portion of 1889-90, and 70,688,947 bushels in 1888-89. Wheat prices for cash are strong and nominally 6 cents up on increasing ex ports and heavier decreases of the available supply, backed by a belief in small re serves. Indian corn is oyi cents nicner and exports smaller. Trade in the Dominion. Telegrams from tbe Canadian Dominion report tbe Ontario wheat crop doing well, with an encouraging Influence on general trade. In Quebec tbe outlook for spring trade is fairly good. Navigation at Mon treal will soon be open. Tbe Dominion re ports 39 business failures this week, against 87 last week and 29 this week last year. The total number from January 2 to date is 672, against 63 last year, R. G. Dun & Co.'s weekly review says: With better weather there is a visible im provement in trade and collections, and while it is but slight as yet, the outlook for the future is generally recorded as encour aging. Crop prospects continue excellent. There, is less monetary pressure at points where'soine stringency bas existed, and in the chief industries some improvement in the demand appears. Meanwhile, the volume of trade continues nearly as large in aggregate value as it was a year ago, some decrease in quantities of important products being balanced by an advance in the level of prices, which is nearly 15 per cent higher than a year ago April 1, and is still more than 13 per cent higher. Iron Trade iess Favorable Than Others. The iron trade shows greater shrinkage than any otber. There is'seen a somewhat better demand for finished products, and especially for structural iron and rails. Tbe spinner takings of cotton continue slightly greater than a year ago, with exports very much larger. At Boston the demand for merchandise generally has improved and retail trade has been quite heavy. In nearly all trades col lections are slow. Some kinds of finished iron at Pittsburg are weaker, but glass is un changed. At Cleveland trade is generally inactive, but good in groceries and hardware, and some improvement is seen at Cincinnati, especially in groceries, and also in general trade at Detroit, The sales ot drygoods at Chicago fall a trifle below those of last year, aud clothing Is quiet, but shoes active, and collections in all those'trades good. Receipts of lard and butter show a slight decrease, and of dressed beef and cheese some increase, with considerable cain in wool. At Oniulin, St. Paul, Minneapolis and Den ver there ure fairly good prices for lum ber, and flour is improving. Business is dull at Kansas City nnd Memphis, but im proved at New Orleans and Atlanta. An Advance In Speculative Markets. In speculative markets there bas been a general advance in breadstuffa, hogs and lard, a decline in oil, and no change in cot ton and coffee. A larger export demand and reports of scarcity "abroad have lifted wheat 2J cents to $1 19, with sales of 46,000,000 bushels here; and oats have risen 2 cents to 6Uf, and corn H cents to 62 on small sales. The actnal scarcity of corn and oats makes an advance easy, but of wheat the re ceipts at Western points continue larger than a year ago, and the exports, until very lately, have been much smaller. It is note worthy that in all winter wheat sections the prospect is considered exceptionally good, and the acreage is reported as largely in creased.. Baw sugar bas yielded a shade this week, but all refined above granulated is a sbade higher. With breadstuff's and vegetables unusually high and wool about the same as a year ago, cotton is much lower, drugs and chemicals lower, iron and its products and tbe range of manufactured products gener ally rather lower, notwithstanding the ex pansion of more than $90,000,000 in the cir culation during the year. Excessive Treasury Disbursements. The Treasury has again paid out this week more money than it has taken in. The exports of merchandise are increasing, and for two weeks at New York exceed last year's by 18 per cent. In March the ex ports of cotton, breadstuff's, provisions, cattle and petroleum from all the chief ports were in value $52,499,637, against $52, 766,262 last year, indicating no increase in the aggregate of tbe exports, while the heavy imports oi sugar raised the aggregate about $6,400,000 at New York alone above that of the same month last year. Probably im ports began to exceed exports in tbat month, and an outward movement of specie may be expected until new crops come. BETRAYED BY LETTERS. A D1V0ECE CASE THAT WIIL IHTEHEST SOME PITTSBUBGEES. An Actress, Formerly of This City, Finds Marriage a Failure Hints of Sensa tional Developments Her Story of a Husband's Cruelty. New Yohk, April 17. An action for ab solute divorce has been brought in the Su preme Court of this city by Marietta Mel ton Seggie, an actress, against her husband, John V. Seggie, who is known ou the stage as John Y. Melton, who has been leading man in several companies. The plaintiff charges her husband with infidelity and cruelty. The parties are well known in tbe theatrical profession. For several years 'Melton has neglected his wife, and becoming suspicious of his actions on one of bis tonrs, she examined her husband's bagcage, and found letters from women in different parts of the coun try, and also articles of separation which Melton had prepared as far back a3 1888, but wlficb, for some reason, he did not make use of. The letters are in the most endear ing terms. Mrs. Melton was formerly Miss Marietta Davidson, of Pittsbnrg. and is a sister of Garie Davidson, of tbe Booth company. The parties were married in this city 11 years ago. They first met in New York. Mrs. Melton belne at that time a soubratte, playing at Niblo's Theater, where Melton was leading man. In speaking of her troubles Mrs. Melton said yesterday; "It was a love match, but I soon found out his true character. He was arrogant and endeavored at first to make me jealous of him. I awoke one night shortly after our marriage and fonnd his hands clasped about my throat. He was trying to choke me. I screamed, and when people came in he claimed tbat I was dreaming. In order to shield him from unpleasant notoriety in the hotel where we were stopping I pre tended that this was true, but tbe marks of his hands were visible on my throat. "He would come home at night and. throw into my lap letters he had received from women, In which tbey deolared their love for him. He also admitted to me his love for a well-known actress many years before our marriage, and told me that there was one woman who would give me $1,000 if I would release him from his marital vows. I bore my misery for years, thinking that he might reform, but wben my existence be came utterly wretched I resolved to rid my self of him. I instructed Mr. Hockstadter to begin this suit." Nellie Melton, of Washington, D. C, Frankie Scanlon, of Toledo, and Florrie Mellinger, are among the letter writers. It is also stated that two well-known married women of Pittsburg will figure prominently in the case when it goes to trial. C0.1I3IISSIONEE FOETEB has taken Frank O.

Captain Fenny Fears Another Outbreak at Fine RIdco Agency. WASniNGTOir, April 17. Captain G. S. Penny, United States Army, the acting In dian agent at Pine Bidge, has written a long letter to tbe Commissioner of Indian Affairs relative to the situation at Pine Btdge and tbe prospects for the future. He says tbat the Indians look upon the recent legislation by Congress as another promise or the Government, bnt their confiJeuce has been somewhat strengthened by the per formance of the agreement as to rations. He urces tbat the recent legislation be car ried into effect with all proper speedi The general effect of the recent outbreak among tnc Sioux has been bad. and has "left their hearts sore and bitter." The memory of the loss of their kinsfolk still rankles when ever the needed spark is applied. He says there is danger to be apprehended of future trouble, and he bases his conclu sion upon the fact that the people are in a state of unrest. Their houses and property have been plundered and there is a feeling of discouragement and a conviction that it is hardly worth while to try again, as there may be another war and all their work go lor. naugnt. Captain Penny thinks that peace and quiet on the reservation would be secured by allowing tbe delegation that was selected by General Miles and visited Washington ltst winter to come here again and have General Hilea will them, FARMERS IN COUNCIL 1 The Ohio Alliance Indorses tho St, Lonis Platform. 0FFICEES ELECTED FOE THE YEAR.

At the State meet ing of the National Farmers' Alliance and Industrial Union, the constitution occupied the greater part of the day. It is in con formance with the provisions of the national constitution. In the clause with reference to theadmisslon of delegates, the word "white" was stricken out In the South the white and colored people have separate Alliances and their constitutions specify the color of the delegates to, be admitted. The Ohio Alliance has decided on admitting both colors. It is understood that the provisions of the constitution contained the word white, bnt that it was changed this morning. The re port of the Committee on Platform and Ees olntions was as follows: Resolved, That we heartily Indorse the plat form of tbe N. F. A. & L. U. as adopted at BC Louis in 1889 and reaffirmed at Ocala. Second Each county to have tbe right to fix Its own officials' salaries. Third Tbat we demand tbe election of the Dairy and Food Commissioner and bis assist ants by a vote of tbe people, instead of being appointed to pay political debts.

Ninth We demand tbat all honorably dis charged soldiers, their widows and their orphans be pensioned, and that all pledges made to them by tbe Government be as fully complied with as in tbe case of the bondholders. The resolutions were adopted separately, each being discussed thoroughly. The plat form adopted at St. Louis and reaffirmed at Ocala was indorsed by this meeting. Tbe following officers for the State organ ization were elected: President. Alva Agffe, Gallia county; Vice President, H. W. Loomis, Scioto county; Secretary, Harry Parker, Brown county; Treasurer, Albert Sperry, Fairfield county; Chaplain, W. E. Parsons, Franklin county; Lecturer, A. D. Foster, Adams county. There was no official action with reference to the com ing conference at Cinoinnati on May 19, which is known as the third party move ment, but everyone is talking abont it. Views of President Folk. President L. L. Polk, of the Na tional Alliance, has some good views on the matter. He says that there shonld not be a permanent organization formed at ths Cincinnati meeting, but a platform of prin ciples adopted; that if a third party is to be formed let it be at the meeting in February. Mr. J. H. Todd, of Kansas, a lecturer for the Alliance, who is present at the meeting, says that in his opinion a simple, strong and well written address or appeal will be issued by the conference at Cincinnati asking them to unify their efforts to secure the desired end. "If tbey unify" said he, "all the devils this side of purgatory cannot keep us from it." Mr. Todd will be a delegate to tbe conference. He says that the delegates will be a better class and a more conserva tive body of men than there usually is at such meetings; that tbey will not act radi cally and unwisely. In his opinion the agitation of 65,000,000 of people from Maine to California and from Canada to the Gulf, means something. It is not the men tbat must be reformed, hut the conditions; that conditions reform the men. B1IX NTE makes his first ann ual fare well tonr of Texas In THE DISPATCH to morrow. Twenty pages. ISest newspaper In the State. CANADA'S BOTJNDABY LCf E. The Surveyor General Does Not Believe a Mistake Was Made. Ottawa, Ostaeio, April 17. A dis patch from San Francisco states that Ensign Moole, of the United States Coast and Geo detic Survey, has announced that he has discovered a mistake in the international boundary survey of 1859 near Bayne, Wash. T., by which the United States came into possession of a strip of land as big as Bhods Island that should have gone to Canada, being on the north 'side of the forty-ninth parallel, tbe boundary line decided on by treaty. Captain Deville, Canadian Surveyor Gen eral, was seen with reference to the matter, and said that as far as the information of the department went no such mistake had been made. On the contrary, surveys made by the Canadian Government at Port Moody went to indicate the possibility that Canada had got a goodly slice (about a quarter of a mile for several miles) of Uncle Sam's domains. In 1859 an interna tional commission was appointed to declare a boundary line between Canada and the United States from the Bocky Mountains westward to the Pacific Ocean". This com mission was composed of expert British and United States surveyors. The forty-ninth parallel was named as the boundary line, and to find this and to mark off the ground with substantial marks was the work of tbe commission. They traced a certain line in which both sides were agreed, and to denote the "imaginary line" big cast-iron monu ments were erected at various points along it Tbe commission reported their agreement on the line, the two Governments ratified the treaty, and the thing was done. If a mistake was made there is no remedy for it, for both sides bad agreed before the marks were placed. Therefore, if the line was drawn somewhat north of the forty-ninth parallel, as claimed in tbe dispatcb. Uncle Sam bas got that much the better of Canada. But Captain Deville was inclined to think that a resurvey would show differently. This, of course, would not be done. If a mistake was made it would not be the first time. In 1773, when the line was drawn betweea Quebec Province and New York State, the forty-fifih parallel was decided on as the boundary. Becent surveys have shown that the commission then went about a mile above the line into Canadian territory for a distance of abont 250 miles, and for many more miles at a smaller error, but making a total average error in favor of New York State of half a mile for 275 miles. The mis take was not all one-sided, for Canada got elsewheru about a quarter of a mile (average-) for 35 miles. The error never was and never will be rectified. Nowadas such mistakes are not made, as tbe instruments are more perfect. Free to the public to-day!
