The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad
Pensions One of the Oldest Con
ductors on Its Line.
Tliat Gathers and Bets on the One "WhoTYIll
First Move to Finish an Inter
esting Conversation.
Chats and Interviews Turned in by Exporters After
Their Gambles.
That soulless condition so frequently as
cribed to wealthy corporations does not al
ways cxit. It sometimes happens that
long, efficient and faithful allegiance is
justly rewarded. The Baltimore and Ohio
road lias just done a graceful act in the re
tirement of Thomas Drake with a liberal
pension for the balance of his days. Mr.
Drake was one of the oldest conductors on
the line, having run on the Pittsburg divi
sion for S3 cars. He is now 72 years of
age, and has a beautiful little home at Bis
scH. For a long time he had charge of the
Biell accommodation.
A recital of Mr. Drake's long service
would be practically a history of the Pitts
burg e.nd of the Baltimore and Ohio road.
He was conductor on the trains that ran
from Conncllsvillc to Port P.crry, where the
passengers were transferred to the Pennsyl
xaniarnad and brought into the city. In
ihose da s the two lines were connected by
a sort of a loop at that place.
Hot a rittslmrs Koad Tlien.
The road then did not run into Pittsburg,
but finally its projectors extended the tracks
alon the river into the city. This was the
old Pittsburg and Conncllsille line, and in
later years it became part of the extensive
S vtpm of the Baltimore and Ohio road.
General AV II Koontz, of Somerset, loves
to tell how permission ias secured from
the Stite Legislature to extend the Pitts
burg ?nd Councils ille rend over the mount
ains to Cumberland. E en at that early
period the Pennsylvania was in the hands
of far-sighted men who held their grip on
the body of law makers at Harrisburg. A
bill was passed for a wagon road over the
mountains w hich concealed a powerful ser
pent, and the extension of the Pittsburg
and Connellsville line was the outcome.
Tor once the Pennsylvania people and their
allies were outwitted, and Jlr. Koontz never
thinks of the event without considerable
Another One on the Retired Lift.
Another old conductor who was retired
last j ear was "Pop" Kennedy, as the boys
on the Pennsvtvania line lamiliari v call him.
He is now In ing at "Wilkinsburg, and is
among the oldest of the conductors, of that
great corporation. Mr. Kennedy Had a
genial, kindh way about him that endeared
im to the tnn eling public. There were few
who .rode on his train that were not on
familiar terms with the old man. He was
very fond of children, and in collecting
tares irom the mammas he neer tailed to
duck the cherubs under the chin. This
was not a ' trick of his to make
himself 'popular, but because he really
loved babies. Drake and Kennedy were
two conductors very much alike in dispo
sition. They were good natured, and for
this reason seldom had any trouble with
passengers, and two firmer men could not.

knew everv blade of grass along the Balti

men show that not all who engage in rail
road work are killed or maimed. Though
frightful wrecks do occur, their frequency is
growing less as new safety appliances are
introduced and the sjstem is pushed toward
How a Gossipy Trio Amused a Crowd of
Drummers at the Anderson.
The ability of women to talk, particularly
gossip, has been the foundation for many a
Tile joke by newspaper paragraphcrs.
Three ladies caused considerable amusement
yesterday for a party of drummers at the
Anderson. Two of them met in ifront of
the house, and, after the usual salutation of
a kiss and a handshade, commenced to chat
ter. They consumed 20 minutes by actual
count when the third came along and joined
in the conversation. They stood so long as
to attract attention, and after an hour had
flitted away one drummer laid a wager with
another that the biggest of the trio would
quit first.
As the guests came in for supper their
notice was directed to the ladies, and more
bets were made The commercial men be
came so interested that they gathered around
the women, but the latter were lost in the
discussion and tailed to notice the crowd.
One bv one drummers who got tired would
drop out, but others would go on watch.
"Well, the women w ere finally requested to
move along by the police, as there was dan
ger of the square Idling up, and the disap
pointed agents declared all bets off. The '
ladies kept up the coin ersation for over two
hours, and are supposed to be still at it.
Amnslng Blunder by a Belgian "Who

A young Belgian who came to Pittsburg
recently to locate prided himself on his
quick mastery of the English language.
"Usually foreigners complain that Euglish

ahead of the average European. Still, he
has a few things to learn, as the following
little incident will show
Shortly after his arrival the Belgian at
tended a drawmgroom reception in the East
End. A most charming joung lady en
gaged him in comcrsatiou, 6ut her talk was
as hard for him to gauge as were Jimmy
Galin's cuncs when the "old sport" was
in his prime. His manner was so peculiar
that finally the girl said sweetly, "Ah,
monsieur, f am afraid j ou do not remember
"Ah, yes," he answered quickly, "your

The Romantic Actor to Hare the Aid of
Clever Manager AX Sneddon.
A. J. Shedden, the theatrical manager
whose connection with Pittsburg theaters is
a pleasant memory, closed a contract in
Ifew York yesterday1" to manage Joseph
Haworth for five years, beginning next
season. "When .Mr. Shedden -was in Pitts
burg early last week he said to a'DlSPATCH
reporter: "I have nearly completed ar
rangements with Joseph Haworth, and my
plans arc so far settled that I can give you
an idea of them. Mr. Haworth-will return,
of course, to the field in which he has
scored such remarkable success; namely,
the romantic drama. He realizes, as
the critics hae told him, that his
forte is the heroic and romantic
as exemplified in 'Paul" Kainar.' which he
played in Pittsburg the" season before las"t.
Jioth he and J. intend to pay proper atten
tion to the staging of the plays, and we
mean to spend 510,000 at least be'fore we go
out on seenerv and costumes. The play on
which we shall bank at first, and if it is suc
cessful, all the season, is 'St. Marc,' a new
romantic drama which was played a few
times with tremendour success last season
by Mr. Downing. The play is in all re
spects strong, and the character in it for
Mr. Haworth is exactly what he wants, and
he is already enthusiastic about it. The
company supporting Mr.Haworth will be the
best we can get, and we do not mean to
spare money. Mr. Haworth has such a high
reputation that it will be an easy matterito
place him in the best theaters in the coiln
try, and I look forward to an artistic and
financial success."
It will be remembered that The Dis
patch lias always maintained that Mr.
Haworth's place was, in the romantic
drama, with ponsibly some day elevationHo
trapedy and Shakespearean roles. In his
peculiar field Mr. Haworth has very, very
lew rivals on the American stage; in fact,
the dearth of actors of his mold and artistic
ability is one of the most curious symptoms
of theatrical life. The news that Mr. Shed
den had assumed the management of Mr.
Haworth will be very welcome to the lovers
of the art, as well as their many friends in
this city.
A Sweet Tonng Tiling at the Union Depot
Who Wanted a Commutation Ticket. .
"TVe-meet many unthinking people dur
ing the day," said a ticket agent at the
Union depot last night. "Here is an in
stance: A young lady and gentleman came
to the window during the week, and the
lady asked for a Wilkinsburg commutation
ticket. The company has had a rule in ex
istence for years to the effect that buyers of
these tickets must sign ' them, to prevent
their being handed around indiscriminately,
and when I handed out the ticket I asked
her to sign it. She turned to her compan
ion and said: Tou sign it,' and he did. I
told him that he could not, and repeated it,
and that the lady should sign it herself.
" 1 don't have to.' was the renlv.
" 'Can't you write?' I Inquired, with the
view of having her affix her mark to it if
she could not. At this perfectly necessary
coorsetand she went away, saying she
would ,3-cach "Wilkinsburg ,By some other
rb'ujte than, .the , railroad.,- But this is only
an instance of the unreasonable peopleone
meets in the course of business." '
A Rustic Maiden Furnishes Great Sport for
a Crowd of Bootblacks.
"Shine 'cm up; post'you a nfckle," sang
a bootblack yesterday afternoon at the
Union station. Business was rather dull,
when a rustic couple passed by, and heard
the lively newsboy's bid for trade. They
were on the way to "be married, and in walk
ing to the station from the farm the buxom
bride-to-be got her cowhide shoes pretty
well covered with mud.
"Won't do, Bill," she said to her future
lord, "to carry so much 'dirt into the preach
er's parlor. 'Spose I hire the boy to clean
"All right," Bill replied, "it will only
cost five pennies."
With a gesture and a howl like the sound
of a horn which she used to call the hands
to dinner, she brought the bootblack to her
feet. The latter wore a grin that couldn't
be measured as she placed her foot on the
box, and all the newsies in sight rushed up
to see the strange performance. The boys

but the girl paid no attention to their gibes
or the remarks from those who passed by.
Mr. Ford "Will Make the First Trip With
the Keystone Express.
The new Keystone express, from New
York to Chicago, will be put on the Ft.
Wayne road to-day. General Passenger
Agent E. A. Ford went to Chicagb"last
evening to make the first trip with th6 "flyer.
The train, including the common coaches,
will be vestibnled and onlyYassengers hav
ing first-class tickets will be carried. The
time will be a little oer an hour longer
than the limlted's schedule.
3Ir. Ford is making ereat claims for the
train. He is banking much on a separate
smoking car, which is fitted up for every
body who wants to smoke. Mr. Ford said'it
was impossible to keep the smoke out of
Pullman cars as arranged, and the smell is
always disagreeable to ladies. The time
was, he added, when the smoking apart
ment on a Pullman car was considered a
great thing, but its day had passed.

Mill Men and Their Famines Gather
at Beaver for a Picnic
Attendance Uot as Large as Formerly fcy
Many Thousands.
-A light, drizding rain which fell all day
yesterday put a damper on the annual pic
nic of the Amalgamated Association at the
Beaver Fair Grounds. It was fully exr
pected that from 15,000 to 18,000 persons
would be present, bu the highest esti
mates placed the crowd at from 8,000
to 10,000, and the . pleasure
of these was marred by their being
compelled, to seek shelter early in the day
and remain under roof-until time for re
turning home. Mill men who took theit
families, with a view of enjoying a dayV
recreation with a basket lunch in the woods,
were greatly disappointed. The wet weather,
ahjo interfered with,the business on the fair
grounds. Numerous stands had been erected
land filled with edibles; the usual array of
sports arranged, together with a number of
nmnsements. Several bands of music had
been engaged and dancing was kept up all,
day. This last amusement was probably
the most successful of alL
. The March to the Depot.
The delegates to the National Lodge
formed at Turner Hall, on Forbes street, at
9 o'clock, and, headed by the Select
Knights' Band, marched down to Chestnut
street, to Fiftfi avenue, to Grant street, to
Third avenue, to Market street, to Fifth
avenue, to Smithfield street, to Liberty
avenue and the Union depot. John D.
Carey, of Equity Lodge No. 47, acted as
marshal and was assisted by AY. H Will
iams, of Wheeling, M. Burns, of Indiana,
and John Gallagher, of Philadelphia. Pres
ident Weihe and the other national officers
;led the column over the route.
Two trains well filled with picknickers
had gone-out previous to the arrival of the
delegates. The official train made the third
from the Union depot, and it arrived at the
fair grounds about noon. In all six special
and four regular trains were sent from this
city. Division Passenger Agent" Samuel
Moody personally supervised the trans
portation of the pleasure-seekers. Three
trains went from Wheeling, two from
Youngstown, two from. New Castle, one
from Sharon and one 'from Mingo and
The order maintained throughout the day
was good. The Committee of Arrangements
very properly made a rule that no drinks
should be sold on the grounds. There were
very few violations of the rule, and Beaver
being a local option town, intoxicants could
not be secured except from those
who had carried bottles in their
pockets. The fakirs were on the grounds
early and 'when the crowd began to assemble
they were all ready for business. They
did a land office business notwithstanding
ine ram. une or tt o snen games were run
outside of the grounds, and although an ef
fort was made to have them stopped by the
Beaver authorities they .loitered around
roping in those who thought they could beat
the game.
Turned Oat In Large Numbers.
The Beaver people "turned out in large
numbers, as it Jiad been some years since
the picnic had been held in the fair
grounds. The people tried hard to enjov
themselves. Between showers they walked
out through the woods or across the race
track, butthe wet grass made this unpleas
ant. Then a shower would come up and a
scramble would be made for the sheds and
dancing platform. .
One or' two fights occurred, late in the
afternoon and one last evening. In the lat
ter a' man named Youngson, from Sharon,
had his face badly bruised. It wasreported
that the trouble occisrrcd through a dispute
about a'girL
Under the circumstances the entire crowd
was a good natured one. It was also a so
ciable one. The families of mill men from
the various towns represented mingled to
gether as neighbors and friends, and no one
seemed to complain about the rain.
Ex-Secretary William Martin, of the as
sociation, and ex-Trustee James H. Nutt, of
Youncstown. were anions the attendants.
Both gentleman have causes for the many
congratulations heaped upon them yester
day. The former met many of his old
friends, made during his long j ears of faith
ful service as secretary of the association,
who were enthusiastic in their good
wishes for his success in his new
field of labor. Mr. Nutt was
kept busv showing his friends a present
which had been given him the night before
by the employes of Brown,BonnelI&Co., in
the Youngstown City Council Chamber. It
is a handsome gold watch and chain pre
sented to him on his retirement from the
service ofthe company to assum the duties
of the new office to which he has been
elected in Youngstown. Mr. Nutt came to
Pittsburg last night, and will be at the
meeting of the Amalgamated Association
Contractors at the New Theater Seek to Pre
vent Alleged Interference.
A. M. McCandless and J. H. Kinser, of
MpCandless & Kinser, contractors for the
brickwork of the Ah in Theater, filed a bill
in equity in Common Pleas No. 3 yesterday
against John H. O'Brien, Edward Brod
erick, Charles Whiteside, Jesse Johnston
and James Stewart, described as members
of Bricklayers' Union No. 2, -praying the
Court to enjoin the defendants from inter
fering with the workmen employed on the
building in any way, and from following the
plaintjfls' employes on the streets, and from
gathering about them at the places where
they live and cat and applying opprobrious
epithets to them.
The Court fixed June 10 at 10 o'clock as
the time for an argument. The filing of this
bill in the new court was alleged to be
mainly for a political motive. It was held
that should the Judge grant an injunction
against the defendants that it would bring
down the hostility -Of the various unions,
and that such a result might provoke an
animus against the Judges which might be
used against their political aspirations in

bigamy, and it transpired on trial that the
offense was really trigamy, as she is said to
have had three husbands since 18S6, William
being the first. He, however, had ex
pressed a desire that she should to his ample
bosom again fly, and was on hand to express
that desire.
No Wife Until After July i.
Judge Slagle, however thought Mrs. Bell
deserved a slight " recognition of her exer
tions, and sentenced her 30 days to jail, and
William was .informed that he must grin
and bear his disappointment until after
July 4.'
Frances Sylvester was until recently the
proud possesspr of 24 chickens which have
gone the way of all flesh, and, she thinks,
into the dinner pots of 'some of her neigh
bors. She also has a garden, 'and deter
mined that as she had no chickens left to
devastate it, Dora Meninger's shouldn't do
it either. They had an altercation on the
subject in which Mrs. Sylvester said that
Mrs. Meninger had threatened to burn the
house of the prosecutrix. Mrs. Meninger,
however, explained that she didn't
threaten anything of the kind, but
that she had said that if Mrs.
Sylvester wanted to go to law she had a'
house and lot to sacrifice, and she (Mrs.
Meninger) hadn't this incumbrance, thereby
intimating what many hold to be the case,
that in contests of this kind the lawyers get
pay for their work, and the one who is re
sponsible must foot the bill. As Dora had
used the multidextrous term of "fix." Mrs.
Sylvester construed it to mean the tiring of
her house. Costs divided.
Fannie Jacobs had her husband, Philip,
arraigned on a charge of desertion. The
parties are of Semetic strain, and it ap
peared that Fannie was subject to a fickle
ness of purpose that made, Philip's efforts
nugatory to keep peace -with her. After a
prolonged hearing, the Court decided that
Mr. Jacobs should payi ?3 a week for
Fannie's support, and intimated that he
could get out of payment as soon as he se
cured a divorce.

' lA. Kemp'prefijrred aj"bafire of" surety of
the peace against Monroe Blake and assert
ing that the latter had assaulted him and
threw a stone at him in addition to making
dire threats. According to their respective
stories one would be inclined to think that
they each represented all the moral and.
Christian virtues bound in black morocco..
Mr. Kemp said that while engaged in his
lawful occupation he heard a '"spute.
and went around somewhere to see what it
was about when Blake threw a stone at
him which, in God's providence, flew wide
of the mark and saved the thrower from the
guilt of murder. The defendant was as
sessed witu tne costs and required to give
$300 security to keep the jDeace. The dis
putants are rival nightsoilers.
Kate Hanlan was on hand, but William
Hanlon wasn't, and his recognizance was
Lizzie Kortz had her husband, John, ar
rested on charge of non-support. They are
McKeesporters, and she said they had been
married three years and had one pledge of
affection, which seems to have taken wings
lately tnat is, tne anection, not tne pledge,
which was quite demonstrative in court.
Her Husband Not the Better Slan.
Mrs. Kortz said that her husband had
tried to whip her, but admitted, on cross
examination, that, she had gotten away with
him in this issue, though it was left to in
ference that if John hadn't been too drunk
or too gallant the issue might have been
otherwise. John must pay $2, a week to
Lizzie and give 5200 security for the per
formance or take the other horn of the
dilemma. '
Carrie Powers, also of McKcesport, said
she left her husband, Jatdes Powers, be
cause he had a habit of beating her. He
admitted that he struck her once, but in
self-defense, when she and her mother and
another irate female attacked him simul
taneously and he was forced to defend him
self. Mr. Powers said he was willing to
support Carrie whenever she came home
and deported herself properly, but he said
that the communion and fellowship of a
father-in-law, mother-in-law, sister-in-law
and son-in-law, in connection with Carrie,
had becn too much for his equanimity.
Judge Slagle, in order to give the fibers of
ruptuted aflcction time to reknit, said he
would continue the case, intimating that
the wife had spoiled her own case by her
At this point the family kaleidoscope, as
Attorney William M. McElroy calls.it, was
put away for a week.
Thomas O'Brien Gets Bis Dose.
Thomas O'Brien, who was arrested on a
bench warrant, was sentenced by Judge
Ewing. O'Brien was convicted over four
years ago before" Judge Ewing of keeping a
disorderly house. He managed to elude
arrest after his conviction, but has been in
the city for four years. He claimed that
his arrest was brought about by C. W.
Stevens, the saloon-keeper, and "Lonny.'
Long. Judge Ewing sentenced him to pay
a fine of $100 and to undergo an imprison
ment of 15 months in the work
house. Judge Ewing said to O'Brien,
as he was about to be taken to jail, that the
Court alone was responsible for his arrest
He had not forgotten him, but did not
know that he was in the city until that fact
cropped out in testimony during a recent
trial. No one but the officer who served
the process, Judge Slagle and himself knew
anything about it. Those whom the pris
oner had charged with having caused his
arrest were entirely innocent
t The following sentences were imposed by
Judge Slagle: Jud Skyles, larceny, four
months to jail; John' O'Mara, larceny, two

on Sunday. The Court took the papers.

What Chief Blgelow Says Concerning
'-Charges' Made by air.Beai , I,
Business circles as well as Councilmantc
were talking yesterday about the charges of
Messrs. Henry Kca and John W. Haney
concerning alleged attempts made by Coun
cilman to force them into offering bribesfor
railroad switch privileges. The gentlemen
emphatically declare that heavy demands
were made by persons working in the inter
est of the City Fathers. The gossip hinged,
on the prospects for an investigation, and
all concurred in the opinion that the charges
were too grave to be passed by without offi
cial recojlition.
When Mr. Bigelow was asked about the
matter yesterday he said: "I don't know any
thing about the matter, but anyone who
would attempt to take any wealth from Mr.
Bea would have his labor in vain. He
makes a practice of holding fast to pretty
much all that he gets."
