V K r t- I f t r REFORMERS ROUTED. The Hunter-Wyinan Faction Eeveals Its Power by Electing Elilers on the First Ballot. SIX VOTES CHANGED IN OXE HOUE. Common Councilmen Shake Their Fists and Call Each Other liars, Eogues and Bribers. -Jl'KIEDTFOLLOTVERS SWEAETEXGEASCE Jjscrican 3IectaEics Claim Thej- Were Turned Down by Their Leaders. Allegheny ran mad last night Charles Thiers -was elected Chief of the Department of Public Works on the first ballot. ever in the history of Allegheny, outside of the Congressional convention last fall, was so deep an interest taken a"s in the election he fore Councils last night. The mysterious Committee of Fifty hich started the re form movement during the transition period, and elected a majority of tbe new Councilmcn, wanted to try its strength and prove its control of that body. The death of Chief Edward Armstrong gave them the opportunity, and they, hacked John McKirdy, of the Second ward, wbo had been prominent in the reform movement, for the place. Charles Ehlers, superintendent of the Bureau of Purveys, and Chailcs AV. ltobinson appeared as champions of the Iluntcr-Wyinan-Pleas- Charles Elders, the Xew PuNtc Worls Chief. nut Valley faction. Samuel Watson entered the field for himself. This faction, .realizing its weakness, drew off Robinson yesterday altornoon, n nd added a number of votes to Mr. Ehlers' lUr. All Out Hustlinjj for Ehlers. Almost e very city official in Allegheny has hcen in the field for the past few days 3iutling for Ehlers Chief Grubbs, of the Department of Charities and Delinquent Tax Collector Greer have only appeared oc casionally at their offices during the past few dayj and, in lact, every string was pulled by the rirg. In spite of this, at 4 r. jr. yesterday Mc Kirdy had votes enough to make him a win ner at the joint session of Councils last nighj. Six men, how ever, deserted the ranks of the reformers, which threw the office to the banner hearer of the ring. Of course the j-cTormcrs arc ?ore and swear vengeance on the deserters. After the election the feeling ran 'o high that a number of the supporters of McKirdy were threatening to assault 3de-rs. Rowbottom, Mercer and Mc Gcary, members from the Sixth ward, who arc alleged to have changed their votes. In f.iet fights were threatened in a number of the saloons about City Hall, where both Fides had adjourned to drown sorrow or drink health. One of tho reformers who was much excited exclaimed: Why, the American Mechanics elected Rowbottom while he was in Europe last year, and yet he turns round and A otes for a 'man who has only been in the country since ISM. II. P. Staving is anothei. He is one of the biggest men in the order, and yet he also voted lor Ehlers." Common Council Greatly Excited. Previous to the election a stormy scene, equally as w ild. was enacted in the Common Council Chamber Members called each other liars, bribers and scoundrels; the crowds in the lobby hooted, hissed and cheered, and all that was needed to have made the pandemonium com plete was a band to play "Annie iaurie," but it was not pre-ent. When the Common branch assembled only 26mem-hers-ncre present, but just then Charles V. Lew is filled up the chair and the quorum. Mi. Rudolph presented an ordinance for the destruction of the light towers and some other routine work was disjiosed of, when Mi. Simon, of the Third ward, rose to his feet and started the w ildest ceno ever wit-nes-ed in the chamber. Raid he: 'Gentlemen, 1 rise to a question of personal privilege. My character has been assailed. I liavc been accused of " Mr. Rippey You've no business to talk. Sit down! Chairman Tarke Sit down yourself. A question of privilege must be heard. Mr. Gregg Xo charges. Sit down! Mr. Simon It's a tike and a fable 'Nonsense,'' -, ellcd Mr. IUder. "Order! Order!"' shouted the Chairman, trying to make himselt heard above tho liis-es and cheers of the lobby. D.ihlingcr Sit dow n ! "All out of order," again declared Chair man P.uke. "I will state now andforall time th.it I may occupy this chair hereafter, that anj- member who'has been publicly at tacked "has tho prfilego of explaining his action." An Affidavit Declared a Take. Then Mr. Simon read from a newspaper the charge against him, alleging that he had offered Mr. Bader $500 for his influence in the fight for McKirdy. Said he: "Mr. Badcr's affidavit was gotten up to in jure both Mr. McKirdy and myself. It is a laicc aim a i;usemm, :iim w as nut goiien up bv Mr. Bader alone. He was nut un to it bv that scoundrel politician who occupied the chair before Mr. Parke." Redoubled jells and hisses follow ed this while Messrs, Dahlinger and Gregg jumped to their feet and ordered Mr. Simon down. Chairman Parke I believe Mr. Simon has a i ight to finish. Mr. Gregg That's too personal. Chairman Paikc The gentleman can pro ceed. The others can answ er. Mr. Gregg Yes. He's on your side and you'll rule that w ay as long as you are in the chair. Mr. Simon tried to continue but the howls from the lobby diowned his voice and he .withdrew with the statement: "Mv past "record wall bear mo out and I am w llimg to lot it stand against that of Mr. Bader. He, with the gang of rogues w ho control three lourths ot the city, are now after tho other ouc-lourtli." Mr. Badcr wa on his feet in an instant and won recognition. "Wants proof, does he? I can produce witnesses. When he came to me I told him him tho door was open and told him to talk low, that people could hear. Ho didn't mind me. The witnesses heard. Ho is no pood. He is only a cheap briber and don't know his business. Too Many Groans and Hisses. G roans and hisses greeted this statement, and Mi . &erw ig stated the lobby was a dis grace to Councils. By threatening to clear it, Chairman Parker at last secured order. Koutino work was then taken up and finished, but Mr. Gregg and a number of other gentlemen left the room. They returned, however, when Select Council joined the Common branch. Mr. Emdsay took tho Chairmanship of tho joint session. On the roll call bl out of the Mi members responded, making the number necessary to elect 31. In quick succession 3Ir. Gregg presented the name of Charles JUhlcrs lor tho po-itionof Chief of the De partment of Public Works, Mr. Einstein nominated Samuel Watson, Mr. Henricks offered that of John McKirdy and Mr. Eshel man announced the candidacy of George Cochrane A viva voce vote w as takcn,and on the poll of Select Council 8 votes fell to Ehlers. 3 to McKirdy nnd 1 to Watson. In tho Common branch Elders and JIcKirdy each got 23 votes, Watson 1 and Cochrane 2. Mr. Ehlers having a total of SI was declared elected amid tho cheers and hisses of the crowd, and the sounds deepened w hen Mr. Mercer announced tho change of his vote from Cochrane to Ehlers. The -vote was unusually interesting from the fact that it drewthelineexactly between tho reform and ring elements, and shows the exact strength or each side In tho present makeup of Councils. The vote was as fol lows: How Each Member "Went on Record. For Ehlers Select Council: Mcfsrj, Born, Emrich, Hanuan, Kennedy (A.). Lowe, Gbcr, Worttrelmer and President Lindsay 8.

For Mr. Watson-Mr. Einstein, of Select, and Mr. Gem lz. of Common Council. For Mr. Cochrane Mr. Eshelman, of Common Council. In the excitement following tho election Councils adjourned. Mr. Ehlers, with ex Chairman Hunter, Chief Grubbs and Secre tary Graham, of the Pleasant Valley Com pany, received congratulations in the hall, but when the crowd became too great, they retired to the Mayor's oflice, while the re- lunoers Btoou oursiue ana swore, xn me midst of it nll.-Ttlr. Hunter took occasion to remark: "They made their fight and got left Any one who bucks against the gang finds tough sledding." In the session of Common Council previous to the election, Mr. Rowbottom presented a resolution for the extension of time for the completion of the Pittsburg, Allegheny and Manchester road until October L and also a resolution granting the Union line right to uso the Pittsburg, Allegheny and Manchester tracks. In the granting or the contract of tho Chanties Department the contracts for flour was refused to Marshall, Kennedy & Co. because Mr. Kennedy, of Select Council, was a member of that firm.

In the report of tho Department of Public Safety Chief Murphy asked for a new fire en gine, and also for hose companies" in Pleas ant Valley and at tho end of East street Mr. Gem itr also nut in a resolution for the erection of SO additional mast-arm lights.

A GEASS FAMINE NEXT Likely to Kcsnlt if the Dry Weather Con tinues Much Longer. There is already almost a grass famine in tho country on acconnt of the absence of rain. All the showers that have fallen hi this section during the past three weeks have not wet the ground to the depth of an inch, and another week of drouth will in sure a higher price for hay than prevailed last year. Butter dealers say the price could not have fallen much below the present figures had there been a more vigor ous gro-n tli of grass. Farmers have about 1 ceased all attempts at plowing, and, some of them are speculating as to the probable utility of light charges of dynamite in the breaking of the crust. Dynamite would be a good pulverizer and would also destroy cut-worms. An observant nnd philosophic German predicted on Wednesday ruin between that time and Tuesday next, and a considerable number of grangers think it a safe predic tion. DEATH OF J. P. WIN0WEB.

Master riuinBers Suddenly Abolish Their Apprentice Boles. MORE MONEY FOE THE COKE STEIKEES 1 A new feature cropped out in the building trades' striko yesterday. The rumor was circulated among the men a few days ago that the eyes of the striko leaders were cen tered upon the material men, with'a view to catching them upon a charge of conspiracy, if it could bo proven that they refused to furnish material to legitimate contractors. There has bpen considerable talk on both sides ever since the strike commenced to the effect that tho Builders' Exchange and the Building Trades Council, by reason of reso lutions passed in both organizations, had committed unlawful acts, and the penalties they had fixed for the violation of the same could not be collected. President Fnlmer, of the Master Builders' Association, when seen by a Dispatch re porter, excused his organization for its ac tion, by claiming that tho workmen were equally guilty, if conspiracy it was, for keeping the apprentices from working when they they wero willing to proceed. M. F. Frank also thought it was unjust and stated that he "intended to notify his apprentices to-day to come to work, and if they did not do so they might consider themselves re lieved. For the purpose of throwing legal light on the subject an interview was sought yesterday with E. B. Ivory, of the -well-known law firm of Hunter, Ivory & Beatty. Mr. Ivory said: A Iegal Opinion as to Conspiracy. s "If I understand your questions, they are: First, Is it conspiracy for the members of tho Builders' Exchange to enter into a com pact not to deal with or sell goods to any one who grants the demands of tho carpenters for eight hours, whether he be a member of Jhe exchange or not? Second, Is it conspir acy for the members- of the different me chanics' trades unions to enter into u com pact to refuse to work with non union me chanics or with union mechanics who work nine hours? "You should remember that these ques tions can hardly be answered intelligently without a very thorough examination of the authorities. Without such an examination my impression would be that these compacts are clearly in restraint of trade, and there fore illegal. They could not be enforced: nor could n penalty for a breach bo collected 'even If the members had agreed that a penalty should be paid by any one who tailed to live un to such a contract. "Conspiracy is the ngreement of two or more persons to do an unlawful act, or to do a lawtnl net by unlawful means, whether tho act is committed or not. It has been decided In Pennsylvania that all contracts in re straint of trade are unlawful and void. "It would seem at flrst blush that this would settle the question. But there are otherphases of the matter that would have a great deal to do in deciding the point. If these compacts were made voluntarily and without any provocation, if they were en- terea into lor any aisnonest purpose or wicn dishonest motives, I would think they would amount to a conspiracy. "If, on the other hand, such a compact was made for self protection and not for tho pur pose of self gainand entirely without mal ice, the matter would present quite a differ ent aspect. I am free to say, however, that were I the counsel for any such association I would not advise them to enter into such a compact without flrst making a thorough ex amination of the matter, for fear that the members might be liable under an indict ment for conspiracy." , Carpenters and Contractors to Confer. A conference will take place at 2 o'clock this afternoon between the journeymen car penters and contractors. As the latter have been given no power to act, the only condi tion under which a settlement can be reached will be for the men to concede their demands for eight hours, a thing they are not likely to do. and of course the conference will not amount to anything. Thojourneymenplumbers met last night and received the following communication from the bosses: Pittsbubo, May 11. To Local Union No. 27: ' GE2CTLEMTCf-ft.t a meeting of the Master Plumb ers'' Association of Pittsburg and vicinity, held Wednesday evening. May 13. the rules heretofore existing between the Master Plumbers' Association and the Journeymen's Association, known as the apprentice rules, were declared void. Very truly yours, Geoboe Sakds, Secretary. The Journeymen feel they have been dealt with unjustly and refused to recognize the communication. The press committee gave out the following statement after the meet ing adjourned: "On March 17 last, our ap prentice rules were adopted, in accordance with a recommendation by the Master Plumbers' National Convention at Denver. They were printed and posted in all shops. Now, one of tho parties to the agreement at tempts to break off the negotiations, a thing which we consider is very unjust to us." The apprentice rules referred to required the boys to work five years before lieing classed as journeymen, and the men claim their rules were adopted for the benefit of the bosses. Tho striko at the Government building was ended yesterday by the dischargo of tho ob jectionable carpenter. Agent Beck stated last night he had made arrangements to furnish slate roofers' materials for any eight-hour contractors, nnd any quantity can ue secured by apply ing to his headquarters, 537 Smithfleld street. Samuel Gompers returned to New York last night. He said circulars would be is sued at once to the various trades to ascer tain which of them shall be next In line for eight hours, instead of the miners. He is confident that the eight-hour striko here will be successful. C0EEBS' HOPES ABE BEVTVED. More Money Going to the Coke Beglons for the Strikers There. The strike leaders in the coke regions have revived hopes. They claim there has been a reduction in forces at many of the works being rnn in defiance to the organization. Nearly 100 of the men have been sent away. Money is coming in more rapidly. Tho labor people Induced 14 of the men to leavo yester day and hnvo the promise of 37 more to leavo this morning. The Frick Company had an other special trian load of new mon taken to the region yesterday. The Union- plant of the McClure Companyand Eagle of the Frick Company were reported as making good starts yesterday. A lot of men' were ex pected to-day. Harry Trimmer, a striker from Mt. Pleas ant, was run down and killed on the Scott dale branch 'while on his way homo yester day afternoon. He had been drinking ex cessively and was sleeping on the track when tho traui'Struck him. He will be taken to Mt. Pleasant for burial. The Dunbar Furnace Company blew in one of their furnaces Inst nizht at 12 o'clock. The employes were returned to work at a 10 per eent reduction. The Manonlng plant of the Cnmbria Iron Company, near Dunbar, has been making a hard struggle" to resumo since tho flrst-of the month, but has made little headway. i FALSE ETJM0BS AFLOAT. Untrue Reports Sent Ont Regarding the Amalgamated Scale. The following telegram has been sent broadcast over tho country and is being printed in all the trade papers very much to the detriment of the association referred to owing to its untruthfulness: "It has been learned that all tho Pittsburg lodges of the Amalgamated Association of Iron and Steel Workers have voted in favor of asking nn advance ef 50 cents a ton in the price of puddling for tho next scalo year, dating from July L The present rate for the Western mills is $5 50 a ton." Almost Ready tor the Rails. Contractor Moran states that nearly four miles of the Moon Bun Railway have been graded. He is pushing the work with vigor, and In a short time tho whole road will be ready for the rails. There is a largo force at work nnd the weather has been very favora ble for grading lately, if not for agriculture and navigation. 'Victory After Twelve Weeks.

EUMOE OF A BATTLE M THE STEPS There was no end of comment, yesterday, on Mayor Gourloy's letter to Governor Patti- son denouncing the supplement to tho city charter. But the talk was carried on in little quiet nooks and corners and fewpeople about City Hall had any desire to be heard discus sing the question openly. Tho general opin ion seems to be that this last shot of the Mayor's breaks down any barriers of official courtesy heretofore existing, leaving nothing but open and bitter warfare between himself and other city officers whom he has accused. The municipal capttol was deserted and gloomy yesterday afternoon. Tho presence of the war cloud wns felt everywhere, and all who could got out of it without delay. Controller Morrow is away on a visit. Chief Bigelow only stayed in his oflice about 10 minutes after dinner, vhen ho took a Jaunt to Schenley Park. Chief Brown was not to be seen, while the City Attorney's office was without its ruler. The Mayor himself seemed to feel the oppressing atmosphere of the place, and went to a picnic at Boss Grove. Before go ing he said: "Senator Flinn charges me with ingrati tude. He does not seem to remember that I am under oath to work for the best Interests of tho citizens of Pittsburg. It is true he worked hard for my election and possibly spent $20,000 in the campaign, as he claims, but If he had spent $1,000,000 I could not do as he wishes. I would wiUlngly do personal favors for Senator Fllnn or any heads of departments, but when it comes to a public matter I pro nose to act according to my convictions." It was reported on the streets yesterday afternoon that Chief Elliot, of the Depart ment of Charities, and Mayor Gourley had met on the poatofllco steps and had a lively set-to. Several people had heard of it, but nobody could be found who had'witnessed the encounter. Concerning the Mayor and his action. Chief Elliot yesterday said: "It's late in life for him to become so virtuous. The party paid $17,500 to make and publish p. character for him. Ho virtually cried hhi way into the Office. I told him what I thought of him the day after he was elected, and my ideas havo proven correct. There was a deficit after the campaign expenses were paid, and he refused to pay a cent of it.' THE iEOLIAN. Herr Anton Seldl's Endorsement of This Marvelous Instrument. Meteopomtak Opera Hotse. My Dear Sirs Your iEolian interested me greatly so much so, that I take no hesi tation in saying that I regard it as a very useful and meritorious invention. I can readily conceive that it will enable even those who cannot play, to produce on the iEolian nearly everything to which they wish to listen, for the manual skill that is necessary should be easily and quickly enough acquired by everybody. I think I can safely predict a widespread popularity for this instrument. .Believe me, tnat this is the very sincere wish of Very truly yours, Anton Setdl, New York, April 21, 1890. The iEolian is neither piano nor organ; is an orchestral instrument peculiar to itself, upon which any person with no knowledge of music whatever can render perfectly the works of the great musical masters. All are cordially invited to call at our warerooms and hear the music of the "May Festival" rendered bythe iEolians. You are not asked to buy.
