Association in its warfare against the smoke!
nuisance i- already bearing Irmt, without,
even the inter cntion of legislative enact
ment. Most apparent is the result of the,
Cfpionacre kept over the toft coal.consumingj
m-ines of the Junction road. For two
davs not an engine on that railroad has
miffed out clouds tof tmoke. The relier
from soot now experienced by the
residents along that line js all
credited to the publication in The Dis-
rA-rcn of Mrs. George F. Denniston's list.
The ladies of course, have their doubts as
lo the permanence of the relorm, and at the
nuisance is again continued they -will lay
their complaints .before ChiefBigelow withd
: request for hini to prosecute the railroad!
company, as theordinanee directs.
The Siuoke Ordlnanco'Pops Up.
Yesterday the ordinance regulating the'
matter, and on which the ladies built their
fight, was discos ercd. Although on Friday
Chief Brown did not know whether such an
ordinance existed, and said if it did he
knew nothing about it, when Chief
Bigelow w..s asked the same ques
tion jesierday he was tnorougniy iamuiar
with the subject Picking up a Thomson's
City Digest, he quickly found the place.
The ordinance is to beJbund on page 580,
under the caption, "An ordinance granting
to the Pittsburg Junction Eailroad Com
pany right of way Irom the Monongahcia
river to the Allegheny rh cr,,with a branch
along the Allegheny river." It i as passed

page 273 of Ordinance Book No. 5. Section
6 of the ordinance isthc part which refers
to the pre eution of smoke, and reads as

The Junction Bailrord Company, by a.
dulv certified conv of a resolution passed by
the'P.oard of Directors, accepted and agreed.,
to this ordinance in all its provisions and

the City Controller, and can still be found

Tn fn.it unrtion of the citveode nerfairiin
to llie goieniment of railroads in general, r
the following stction ot an ordinance was
found j e-terday, upon which the ladies
base great hopes.
An K en More Sweeping Ordinance.
AVm-RtAs, The running or railroad trains
through the inhabited parts of tho city is
attended with great i Nk, and it is the duty
of the citj to protect the citizens and other
)cr-ons who are entitled to the u-e of Hie
public streets, Ijy rea-onablc regulations for
the running of said trains it Is hereby, pro
"V ided that hereafter no trains shall be run
upon or over am public street of the city of

ol, except in'accordancc w ith the follow mg
ob.tuminpn's coil or w oofl shall bo used
in the engine of any locomotive einplojed
in conducting trains upon auj railro.ul.
speaking lurther ot the matter, Chief
Bigelow said: "'I hae looked into this
smoke trouble myself on scleral occasions
during the past few years. I had no abso
lute proof myself, and every time I called
on the officials they declared that only coke
was being used for fuel. As for the excuse
that was ghen the ladies, that Baltimore
and Ohio engines may occasionally go over
the road burning sott coal, I inu-t say k isa
rather thin argument. The ordinance in
tends the prohibition of the use of bitum
inous coal on that road, no matter what
engines are used on it. If the ladies present
their eompUints to me 1 will carry out tho
duty imposed upon me by the ordinance.
Alfthev need to do is to furnisli the wit-
No Difficult in Getting 'Witnesses.
Controller Morrow, when spoken to on
the matter, said: "If witnesses only are
needed, they certainly will not hate any
trovble. Prom my house I can see engines
puffing smoke on "the Junction road every
daj almost. Immense black clouds are
thrown out, but it is too far away to bother
me cry much. "Why, for the past five or
six years the smoke from the Junction road
was'the only coal smoke we saw."
Although the ladies Health Protective
Association hac not et recehed an answer
to the letter to the flavor of Chicago, THE
Dispatch was able j cstcrday to secure the
last report of the Smoke Committee of the
Citizens Association of tliat city. It con
tains tabulated statements of the firing de
vices of all the firms visited, and it was
learned that where smoke consumers were
used, together with careful stoking, there
was f can-ely any smoke and a vast saving or
fuel. Concerning its work the committee
Some Observations or Investigators.
The observations made extended to 533
establishments w here stcjnils in constant
tic for . anous purposes including 633 boil
ers, ot which 231 places have in uso dpices
for the prc ention of smoke, and 99 ha e no
apparatus for the purpose. The particulars
are minutelj set forth in the tables prepared
bj the expert. From an analjsis of these
tables it will bo seen that, although tho
devices in use ha c a very marked effect on
the result as to w hether the smoke emitted
from the chimnej s is x cry black oroffensive,
so much so us to incline us lo tho opinion that
a proper apparatus is almost indispensable
for tho complete suppression of the snioko
nuisance, yet we believe that tho greatest
amount ot good can be accomplished by
careful attention to tho tiring; and the use of
a good quality of coil. l!v combining these
three conditions an cthcicnt smoke-pre-x

given, that tho smoke arising from some
chimneys where the poorest quality of coal
is used Is reported as xory light, when ac

A Prolific Source of Clack Smoke
Tho practice of "crow ding the furnaces"
with fuel is one of the most prolific sources
of offensive smoko that we have to contend
with; this is made necessary, or believed to
be necessary, from thn insufficient size of
boilers, or of chimneys, to perform their
I work. Tho fires have to bo urged, to their
utmost rapacity to Keep up me requisite
amount of steam, and this Is done at
a great waste of coal, the custom be
ing to put on as much fuel as the
furnace will hold, and then rake It out from
below M hen insufficiently, or liot thoroughly,
burned, to mnko room for a fresh supply
abovc; tho result being tliattlioouteralr jjete
nn amount of denso smoke that annoys tho
public, while the proprietor of tho establish
ment pays for a largo amount of fuel of
whlchlio gets no benefit. Tho samo result
occurs from heedlessness of engineers and
firemen who, from indolcnco or ignorance,
completely nil their furnaces with coal nt
certain periods, and pay nofurtherattentlon
to their flres until tho timo comes to glib
the furnace a fresh charge of fuel; all chim
neys w hero such practices obtain emit dense
Continuing, the committee sayst "Wc
are ollie opinion that the suppression of
smoke as a nuisance is within the power of
those who own the stationary boilers and of
the men who have charge of Jicm; and the
formcr'havc no right to subject their im
mediate neighbors or the public to the
damage to health and property caused by
their own inattention. They should act in
unison and exert their employes to do their
manifest duty."
Ealrtnty and Steamboat Offenders.
In speaking of the investigations regard
ins the suppression of smoke on railways

Kvory tng and nearly every locomotive
engine oberved 'is belching lorth great
x olumes of intensely black smoke: the cv

I that this company uses bituminous coal; but

One member of the committee took a trip

Hundreds of Kine-Hour Workmen
Coining to Pittsbjirg.
Lator Leaders in the Cote Region Are Now
Between Two Fires.
Sensational developments are expected in
the Building Trades' strike -to-morrow. It
was stated last night, on i'the authority of
the BuildcrsV Press Committee, that 100
plumbers had come to the city yesterday
to take the place of strikers
to-morroxv, and that hundreds of carpenters,
stonemasons, bricklayers and electricians are
expected early in the week. Within the
next xx eek enough men are expected to be
here from xarious points to keep things
moving until the mfci here withdraw their
demands for eight hours. Builders xvill not
say that they are directly responsible for tho
other men coming here to replace the
strikers. A number of them-seen last night
said they knew the men were coming, but
did not know at whose order.
. Work on a Theater to Uo Kesumed.
Work on the Alvin Joslyn theater xvill be
resumed to-morrow, but at nine hours. The
local contractor had been granted the priv
ilege of xv orking nine hours for a few days,
until the building could be put in a safe
condition. Yesterday the Builders Ex
change furnished him with a sufficient num
ber of men to go ahead xrith the job at nine
hours, and the xvorlc ivilJ, be pushed
to completion as rapidly as possible.
This is one point gained" by the master
builders yesterday. They claim to have
gained another one yesterday by stopping
the work ofi the nexv King building on Lib
erty street. These two jobs are the princi
Sal ones that have been xvatched xvith ,any
egrce of interest since the strike com
menced. Contractor McMasters had granted
the demands of his men, but as he is not a
member of the Exchange it xras extremely
difficult for him to get material. Yesterday
he gave up, not being able to procure brick
and if xvork continues on that job to-morrow
it xv ill be under the nine-hour rule.
Vice President Powell, of the Master
Builders' Association, waj seen yestcrdav
afternoon and asked xvhen'a conference xvill
be lield.
'Whenever the men ask for it," xvas. his
,rYhx-, the men claim that as they asked
for the last conference, and you -did not ac
complish anythiug, it is your turn to ask
for a meeting," xvas suggestedi
Not Anxious for a Conference. "
"It xvould be," replied Mr. Powell, "hut
we are not anxious for a conference. If the
men xvant to confer, we will confer. But
xvhat's the use in a conference; there xvill
never be any concessions on either side?"
"If there'is never any concessions, there
will never be a settlement," remarked the
"Well, we will not concede our positiont
We xvill not give in to the eight hours and
there is no use talking over other rules
until the question of hours is settled."
J)uring the conversation with Mr. Powell,
the question of conspiracy came up and the
gentleman remarked that someone is liable
to get into trouble it the conspiracy agita
tion is kept up much' longer. "If it is
conspiracy to refuse to sell material to con
tractors xvho are xvorking eiglit hours, it
certainly is conspiracy for. Mr. Swartz to
prexrcnt"apprentices from forking if they
choose," said he. "I told my boys that
they must either go to xv ork or get another
job. In my presence they asked'
the President of the union in xvhich they
are registered, If they could work and he
told them they could. Then they xvent to
Mr. Sxvartz and he told them thejr could not.
Sow, here is something (and he drexv from
his pocket a document) which we hax e dis
covered. It xvill be sent to all contractors.
They xv ill then order their apprentices to go
to xvork, and xve will be xery careful to
know xv ho prevents them."
The lavi as Regards Apprentices.
The document Mr. Powell hail was an act
of Assembly, dated April 28, 1876, and reads
as follows:
Section 1 Any person who shall, cither in
an indix ldual capacity, or as a mcinber of
any association, attempt by auy unlawful
means xv hatex-cr to prevent any mechanic,
emplovc or person liax-mg charge of any
manufacturing business, from taking
as an apprentice any minor whose
parents oi guardians arc desirous
of apprenticing said minor, or whero such
said minor is without parents or guardians
and desires to apprentice himself or herself,
shall be guilty ot a misdemeanor, nnd on
con Iction thereof in tho proper Court of
Quarter Sessions, shall be -cntciiccd to pay
a fine of not exceeding $100 or imprisonment
not exceeding three mouths, or both, or
either, at the discretion of the Court.
The regular meeting of the Building
Trades Council xvas held lastnight. A com
munication xvas received from the Car
penters' Council, asking that all trades
refuse to xvork on jobs xvhere nine-hour
caqientcrs are employed, and a resolution
xvas passed unanimously in accordance with
the request. The plumbers sent a request
that the marble cutters refuse all cards ex
cept the certificates issued since the com
mencement of the strike. Resolutions xvere
adopted indorsing the new Union Supply
Company. ,
A meeting was held in Sailer's Hall last
night foj the purpose of making further ar
rangements for establishing the proposed co-operatix-c
concern for supplying building
materials. The proceedings of the meeting
xvere not given out, but it xvas stated that
the nexv company xvill be ready in a few

Between the Revenge of tho Operators and
-the Curses of the Men They Aro Miser
able Unlontown Mechanics Express
Themselves on the Strike.
The coke strike was riractically declared.
6ff yesterday. Peter Wise gave in, and to
alibis friends xvho asked advice he told
them to return to work. Yesterday the
companies decided not to start any new
works until there was a good demand for
coke, nut the men flocked to the offices in
such numbers and begged so piteously that
the Frick Company will put fourmoren
plants in operation Monday. This will
leave them but,tw o plants idle.
The leaders of the strike are being refused
work. The black list will amount to several
hundred. The district officers seem to be at
their xvits ends' td know what course to pur
sue. The operators are prodding them with
a sharp .stick on every side, for xvhat they
have done, and the labor people who have
been so disappointed in losing the strike are
cursing them loudly for what they have not
done. A call will be issued early next
xveek for a delegate convention to arrange
for the future course of the organization.
A lively xvashing of dirty linen may be ex
pected. The American Mechanics of TJniontown
have taken a stand on the strike, now that
it is over. There is only one Council of the
order in the county seat of Fayette county,
but it is composed of a goodly number of
the most prominent citizens of the town
and at the last meeting of the Council the
following was adopted:
AVnEiiEAS, During the past month thecoko
operators of Fayotte nnd AVcstmoreland
counties hax'e been flooding their mines

Unlontown Council Xo. 157, Jr. O. U. A 51.,
that xvo most heartily deplore and condemn,
tho short-sighted sofflshness that has led to
this nction on the part of the operators. AVo
nrq.no labor organization, nor aro we banded
together to cieate discord betxveen employ
ers and employes, but xve are American
citizens, who lox-o our country and desire to
seo Its freo Institutions perpetuated and Us
prosperity, both moral and material, ad
xanced. Ave know that theso newcomers will
crowd out many American citizens. AVo
know that they aro of a lower grade, both of
morals und intelligence, than even thosefor
clgners wo already have among us. AVq
know that anything lowering1 the grade of
labor loxvcrs the estimation in which labor
itself is hold In the eyes of tho community.
Ignorant and vicious workmen bring io
proach upon honorable toil. Prosperity
cannot long abide where the dignity
of labor is Ignored. 'An intelligent and
patriotic citl zcnslup is tho only guaranty
of the continued existence of Republican
institutions, whllo a vioious and ignorant
populace easily surrender rights they do not
appreciate and know not how to obtain: yet
somo of theso recent acquisitions will, in
course of time, recruit the ranks of our
voters and lawmakers. AYhat can ariso
therefrom but exilt The Hun and Slav
havo already injured tho reputation of our
valley for peaco andi goojl order, have in
creased the business of our criminal courts
nnd are almost solely responsible for the
scenes of violence and bloodshed which
have recently disgraced our whole region.
AVo cannot now prevent this unwise, selfish
nnd unpatriotic course on the part of the
operators, but we would bo untrue to our
principles If we did not protest against It.
Kcsolved. That w e call upon sister councils
throughout tho State, and especially In Fay
ette and AVestmoreland counties, to unite
w 1th us in this protest.

xvant a reduction in the coke rates
from 51 So to $1 15. Tip to the
present time the ' railroads have
.refused to consider the request until the
coke strikd' xvas ended. The argument was
made'that not more than J cent per ton per
mile xvas made for ore, and a proportionate
tariff should be fixed for coke. The railroad
officials seem to think that the furnacemen
have been idle so long that they xvill start
anyhow. The claitn xvas made that the

Braddock's School Children Give an'
Entertainment of
Exhibitions . Which Beflect Credit
Scholars apd Teachers.
The concluding entertainmenti of the
Braddock schools, given last-night In the
rink at that place, exhibited the pupils in a
condition of physical and mental training
which could not be excelled by children of
the same age in any other public institution
out of this country.x Just as remarkable,
probably, was the appearance of the
youngsters, their Bright young faces aglow
with intelligence and their natty dress
betokening the care of devoted parents,
enabled to send their offspring before the
pnblic view through the prosperity which it
is open to every man and woman in this
country to attaiti. A crowded audience was
present to witness the exhibitions, and the
applause bestowed on the young people was
as thoroughly deserved as it was oft-repeated.
The entertainment was the concluding
one of a scries of three gix en in the halL
The proceeds go to a fund for supplying the
schools xvith organs, and a number of tickets
were placed on sale. Premiums were an
nounced for those who sold the highest
number, and the interest was thus increased.
.General Taylor Council, Sr. O. TJ. A M.,
disposed of the highest number, 420, and
Monongahela Council, Jr. O. TJ..A. M., was
second, disposing of a number not stated
last night. J. A. AVynne was awarded the
prize, consisting of a Jr. O. V. A M. badge,
an umbrella and hat for selling the highest
individual number, 350.
Other Prizes That Were Awarded.
Miss Mary Oskin was presented with a
Webster's nnabridged dictionary and a
guitar, for selling the highest number of
tickets of any Hfgh School girl pupil, and
George Dowler received a prize for the
highest number sold by a boy pupil. John
Stalil xvas the recipient of a silver
xvatch presented by J.. AV. .Johnston to
the schoolboy outside of the High
School selling most tickets, and
Gilbert Norman was given a League
ball and bat presented by P. J. Haffner, the
next highest. Miss Cora Fritzius sold 44
tickets, the highest by any girl outside of
the High School, an'd was accorded the
privilege of selecting any pair of shoes in
Himmelrich's store. Josie AA'ilcher came
next in the number sold and is the possessor
of a 52 50 gold piece, given by the Dally
Mayor Gourley was to have been present
to take an active part in the- presentation
but a slight attack of rheumatism made it
impossible for him to attend. He asked
Prof. Harry AV. Fisher, principal of "the
Seventeenth xvard school, to attend in his
stead, a duty which that gentleman per
formed very readily, and, as he said, with
very much ultimate pleasure.
The evening's entertainment opened with
a grand chorus and part son, "Eow, Boat
man, Eoxv," xvhich formed the initial of a
programme containing 14 numbers. A
tableau. "The Death Bed of Benedict
"Arnold," in which Edgar Tedd represented
tne cnaracter ot tne traitor, lolloxvcd, and
then came the "Pumpkin Pie JJrill." This
xvas participated in by a number of young
sters ranging from 8 to 10 or 11 years, gaily
arrayed in, costumes describing some of the
ingredients necessary to the concoction of
that favorite otthe farmer.
Some Visitors From Other lands.
"Moonlieht on the Lake" was npxt ran.
f dered by a group of yonng scholors -ery
tunetutiy ana aoiy tea Dy a little miss who
will some dav be heard from,
and then "Ayisitors From Other
Lands" xvero introduced. These xvere
Jtal Ruling Hood, Silver Hair,
Jack the Giant Killer, Liitle Bo-Peep, and Cm
derd'Oj represented by five little people ap
propriately attired, nnd each of whom had a
few lines to recite descriptive of the charac
ter. The next exhibition was a pantomime in
three scenes describing a "Country Church."
The' first scene displayed the" church, with
some of the congregation already arrived;'
then others entered, followed bv the parson,
who mounted the platform. Tne boys were
got up with chin xvhiskcrs, glasses, etc,
xvhile thd sweet, young aces of the girls
peeped out from under sun bonnets. The
parson himself wore a respectable and
solemn appearance and a profusion of black
hair -under his chin. The next scene
exhibited the parson discoursing with much
gesture and vigor to a congre
gation xvhich had either fallen
asleep or xv as yawing outrageously, while
the young ladies some of them, anyxvay
looked demurely across the aisle at the
young men, xvho" were not backward in re
'turning the glances xvith interest. This
scene xvas accepted as true to nature, but
then it xvas a "country church." The third
scene pictured a wedding, in which a coupje
xvcre united in about ten seconds.
Sixteen AVell Drilled Boys.
The "gun drill," by 16 boys, xvas a feature
of the entertainment, which exhibited the
great care and time devoted to the xvork by
the teachers. The boys marched, counter
marched and xvent through the manual of
arms xvith much precision, and their per
formance xvas loudly applauded.
Mrs. Sadie Todd recited "The AVarning,"
a conception founded on a supposed incident
on the Johnstown flood, and a tableau the
"Death of Minnehaha" folloxved. A little
chap of about 9 years Lee AVhitp, as Little
Fritz related ihe trials of a German school
boy in so disingenuous and natural
manner as fairly brought down the house.
The "Dumbbell Drill" followed, and then
came the Kazoo Band, and "Vogel's AValtz,"
sung in chorus. The pantomime of the
"Sleeping Beauty" followed. This was
charmingly costumed, and very xvell per
formed by'the jux-(!nile actors.
The presentation of the prizes xvas then
made by Prof. Fisher, Itev. T. M. Boyle,
pastor of the First Methodist Church,
Burgess Itusscll, County Superintendent of
Schools Samuel Hamilton, and other gentle
men, the announcements being made by
Prof. Elmer AV. Moore? xvho has charge of
the borough schools, with whom xvcre asso
ciated, in the conduct of arrangements,
Prof. Seward Haymaker, Principal of
the Third ward school, Miss Josie
Friherst, and the teachers, all of xvhom are
to be highly complimented on the display
made by their charges. The teacher of
music was accorded much praise for the ex
hibition of singing, a feature which has only
been introduced into the schools this year.
Messrs. AV. AV. Todd and C. C. Faucett,
members of the School Board, occupied seats
ou the stage, which was inclosed by an im
provised uouie curtain.
Coraopolls Detectives Find It, After a
Bather Iong Search.
Bloody shirt orators will rejoice to learn
that the garment has been found in McKec's
Rocks. A man named McNary objected to
a" colored man drinking in the same saloon
xvith himself, and indulged in some stric
tures unpleasant to the African race. The
negro took his drink, and going out to the
sidewalk, awaited the exit of McNary, and
used a razor with severe effectf upon his
Detectives spent considerable time limit
ing for the ensanguined garment. It was
found yesterday, and was also found to be
well saturated 'Squire Bryan has cogniz
ance of the case.
First Picnic at Hulton.
The cork workers of the Armstrong
factory held their annual picnic at Hulton
yesterday. The weather was cold and.wet,
but the big crowd managed to have a good
time, " they said.'' s
It Was Celebrated Yesterday and the Do-
nations AVere Large Scores of Ladles
Watch the Boxes Sunday Schools and
Churches W1U Help To-Day.
Notwithstanding the down-pouring rain,
the sickening atmosphere or any other of
the discomforts of out-of-door life yesterday,
scores of Christian women showed their kind
liness and benevolence by standing guard at
baskets at various corners in the txvo cities
where the people dropped in their mite to
help support the city hospitals. Though it
may be "more blessed to give than to re
ceive," you have double the blessing when
you receive only to turn about and give to
some charitable institution that it may be
supported in its efforts to lighten the sor
rows of man or heal his injuries. The
ladies stood with smiling faces watching the
coins and 'the bills as they were dropped
into their baskets and their presence doubt
less added largely to the amounts secured.
Dimes, quarters, half dollars and dollars
jingled merrily in their fall, but though
they did not so loudly announce their ar
rival, the greenbacks, ones, twos and fives,
added somewhat, in a decorative way, to the
silver lining of the baskets.
There were IS stands at which the ladies
received the' "Hospital Satarday" offerings.
They were located at the Baltimore' and
Ohio station, Fifth avenue and Market
street, Sixth avenue- and Smithfield street,
Pittsburg and Lake Erie station, Fifth ave
nue and AVood street, Fourth avenue and
Market street; Carnegie Hall, Allegheny;
Sixth street bridge, Allegheny; Allegheny
Market House, Ft. AVayne station, Alle
gheny; the Union depot and .at South
Twelfth and Carson streets.
The Collections Thought to Be Large.
Although no figures are to be had, the
collections at all the places are thought to
have been larger than a year ago. Last
year it amounted- to about 54,500, but it is
expected that this year it will be a great
deal more.
The table at the Ft. AVayne depot, Alle
gheny, was in charge of Mrs. B. A Harris
and Mrs. M. J. Sinclair. The ladies thought
they were handicapped by the two stands
above them and the others on Fifth avenue.
"The people are either in a hurry to catch a
train or to leave the depot, so that we don't
catch them," said Mrs. Harris, "but I like
this method much better than going around
and asking for money. Anything we get is
given voluntarily. AVe don't meet with
any rebuff and the only drawback so far has
been the rain."
At South Twelfth and Carson streets Mrs.
Hammett and Mrs. Dr. Brexvster were in
charge. Their collections had reached 515.
Mrs. Brexvster said she thought they had
made a mistake in npt printing the signs in
German and Polish, as a great many of that
class passed xvho could not read English and
did not understand thc'bbjcct of the dona
tions. "I have been asked several times
xvhat we have for sale," "said the ladv, "and
one man insisted on purchasing aboquet.
The people in general do not understand the
matter, but we hope that next year Hospital
Day xvill be treated with more liberality."
The School Children Help.
In nearly all the schools collections were
taken up for the hospitals Friday, but some
of them did not learn of it in time and will
make their offering the' first of this week.
The amount secured from the school chil
dren is kept separate from the balance of
the fund, and when it is all in will be count
ed up and the little folks will be credited
with the sum. . .
The mills, factories, lodges and secret so
cieties of the city also make donations for
this hospital fund. The churches and Sun
day schools xvill make their donations to
day, and the first of the week it xvill all
come into the hands of the ladies and will
be apportioned out- to the various institu
tions according to the number of free beds
they have.
Over Two Hundred Dollars Added to the
Fourth of July Fond.
The grand old Fourth of July celebration
at Schenley Park was boomed again yester
day to the extent of $210. Mayor Gourley
is enthusiastic over the way the money is
coming in nnd does not believe there will
be any trouble in securing the 55,000
necessary to complete the display. The
paid in subscriptions so far amount to 5765.
The contributions received yesterday were
as follows; A. M. and J. B. Murdock, 55;
H. C. Frick Coke Company, 550; George J.
Schraitt, $25; the Hostetter Company, $50;
Ripley & Co., $5; McClure & Co., 523;
James B. Haines & Son, 525; Charles S.
Clark, 525. The total contributions so far
amount to $705 SO.
Not Insulted by Being Called a Dog.
Kate Ciba, charged with disorderly con
duct by Kate Kowalski, xvas given a hearing
before Alderman Succop last evening, the
allegation in the case being that the de
fendant called the prosecutrix a "dog."
The testimony developed the fact that the
prosecutrix had been at fault, and Alderman
Succop dischirged the defendant and put
the costs of the case upon the prosecutrix.

A Delicate Operation to Bemove It Did NotN
Prove Successful It Will 'Be Tried
Again To-Day The -Boy Is Besting
Easy. '
The physicians of the AVcst Penn Hospital
yesterday made an attempt to remove the
broken pipestcm from the throat of Davy
Arilliams, 4 years old, who was taken to the
hospital Friday. Dr. James McCann per
formed, the operation. .All the hospital
physicians aud the students of the AVest
Penn Medical College were present. The
knife was first used on the throat and a tube
inserted to allow; breathing. Then the deli
cate work on the throat began. It was
found that the pipestem. had passed down
into the left bronchial tube, where it was.
firmly lodged. Several attempts were made
to get a hold on it secure enough to iyi$h
droxv it, but without avail. Probes of differ
ent kinds were used, and the grating on the
pipestcm could easily be detected.
After working about an hour, Dr.McCann
decided to stop' and wait until to-day, when
the operation will be again tried." ,He js
very confident of his ultimate success in his
delicate operation, but did not care to pro
ceed yesterday, as he feared the workxvould
cauRe too much of an inflammation. At noon
toay he will try it again, and has every
thing prepared to go aheadjuntil he succeeds
ifi extracting the bothersome pipestem.
The little boy stood the examination well,
considering that he has been suffering for
nearTyaweek. 'He was resting easy last
night, and was not any worse off than when
he was brought to thenospital on Friday.
