THE FUNERAL ARRANGEMENTS. George Orttman Cats His Throat With a Eazor to Avoid Arrest for Disorderly Conduct rKOTESTIXG AGAISST BELGIAN BLOCK 3rtei7'Eketthe of the Harpenings in the Great Cities. Tw The tragic death of Henry X. Deihl, the yiolice officer who put a bullet through his head on First avenue Tuesday evening, was almost the sole topic of conversation in police circles yesterday, and many new de tails were brought to light "What the dead officer meant in his final letter when he said "I hope Annie will till you both," was the subject of consider able speculation until the full text of his last words were examined. Several para graphs of the letter were omitted in the newspaper reports, for the reason that another name was involved. "Annie," of course, was Sirs. Deihl; but who could be included with Maggie Ed gar in the word "both." In that portion of the letter which was omitted Deihl ex plained that he had frequently passed "Mary" money to take Maggie's place at the Koth retaurant while she was absent with him. "Mary," it develops, was the jrirl who accompanied the Edgar girl to the police station after the fatal shot was fired. Her name is Mary McVickers, and, while much older than Maggie Edgar, was her especial friend and companion. An in vestigation proved that she was paid by Deihl at the rate of 50 cents a night to take Maggie's place at the restaurant, while the pretty little waitress and the officer made visits to a place in Allegheny. HEIt DEATH WAS REQUESTED. The McVickers woman had made her home TUth Edgar, at Id iirst avenue, and-ho 1ms lcn very laniiliar with the affairs of Deihl and Miss Edgar. Why the officer should cypress tho wish. In his dying statement, that his wilt would kill the Uc "Vickcn. woman can only be a matter of con Jectme, though Inspector McAleaso does not ".peak of l.er in the most complimeiary terms 111 connection with tho tragedy.

The suspended officer went to tjuiei urowu upon uis return ironi Chicago and was told that his service -wiiuid no longer be acceptable. He begged Jor reinstation, but met with no encourage ment. Finally Mrs. Delhi came to the ollico of Chief Brown and interceded for her hus band. She told the Chief that Mr. Deihl had promised to care for his taniily better in the lature, and that they were then in absolute irant. ItEHCSTATED THEOCGH. MTV. The rent had not been paid and there was no money for their support. The chief final ly promised her that if Inspector McAleese would recommend that he be reinstated that another trial would be given him. On ac count of his eNcellcnt record as an officer and the condition of his family the Inspec tor advised that he be reinstated, which was done. Tne remains of the dead officer will be taken to Ins old home at Irwin, Pa., lor bur ial thisalternoon, leaving the Union station at 1 o'clock. Inspector McAleese has de tailed the following officers to act as pall 'bearers, accompanying the remains to Irwin- Albert Teeters, Mlcheal Connelly, Andy Scott, Brady Thompson, A Mannion and fieorge Boyd. The officers will report in full uniform at headquarters at 12 o'clock nnd proceed immediately to the house on "Washington street. At the inquest yesterday nothing new was developed in the case.

The Coroner ordered the release of Maggie Edgai. and yesterday afternoon she was Mt'n promenading Sinithlield street in com-1-any nh a girl ot about her own age. She was dresed in a bright new sailor suit and hat and exhibited no signs of mental anxiety. On the contrary she seemed quite chipper, and every here she went she was pointed out by people who lined the side walks. The following special was received from Irwin station last night: "Officer Henry X. Deihle, of Pittsburg, suicide, was a native of this city, where he was favorably know n.

If Chief Brown Is-running his own affairs, nnd asldo from a little newspaper talkthcro socms to be nothing to the contrary, the selection of a chief of the Are department is still an unsettled matter, notwithstanding contrary reports. "Yes," said he, "I have heard of the re port that Miles Humphries has declined the appointment, and that I have tendered the position to William Weihe, but this is sim ply tho work of a fertile Imagination. Any one can readilv understand this if they stop to consider. No doubt Mr. Weihe would make a competent head for the fire depart ment, but it is not likely that I would appoint a Demoorat to such an imports ant position. I am a Republican, and you may rest assured that the next Chief of the Fire Department will be a Republican. I will not. as 1 stated to The Dispatch yester day, name the new Are chief until after the return of Chief Evans from Springfield, and probably not until my return from the Har rlsburg convention, for which I leave on Mon day. When I do name tho new fire chief I will nlso appoint his subordinates, nnd de fine their duties and the duties or the officers or-the department. All of this may take a week." DEFIED THE POLICE.

Crowds of People Look on at the Evolutions of the Boys. THE EXECUTIVE EETURNS HOME AGAIN The Second Brigade of the State Guards in came at Arnold's station did itself proud yesterday. So said its Commander, Briga dier General "Wiley, its reviewing officer of the day, Governor 3?attison, and so uni versally agreed the cohort of admirers which congregated without the lines to wit ness the business of the day. It was the Governor's day, and the review of the brigade which His Excellency held was accomplished most successfully and satisfactorily, as lje took occasion to observe. The day was not too warm, and the rain precipitated over night had subsided, leaving the ground dry, and, toward the afternoon, in good marching condition. The review over, the Governor and his staff embarked at 7 o'clock on board a special train for Pittsburg, whence the journey to Harrisburg was continued on the fast line nt 8:10 o'clock. The Governor spent nearly four days in camp. Summed up in a phrase, his opinion of the Second Brigade is that it compares more than favorably with the other two he has visited. Quite a number of Pittburgers called on the Gov ernor during the day, and fully 1,000 people visited the soldier boys in their quarters. EEVIEWED Br THE GOVERNOR. The feature of the day was the review by the Governor. This came off at 4 o'clock. The forenoon waa occupied in the customary routine drills. Battery B camo down from its quarters in the wood into the parade ground aud spent three hours in evolution and gun drill. The Eighteenth Kegtment took the field at 6 o'clock before the sleep was out of the boys' eyes nnd had a crack at battaliou drill. So had the Fourteenth aud Sixteenth Keglments, who musteied for in spection, deferred owing to the storm over night, and nfterward went through a few maneuvers before returning to quarters. Befoio tho Eighteenth was dismissed Second Lieutenant James H. Bigger was the re cipient of a testimonial from tho members of his company. Company B. Lieutenant Colonel Kutlcdge, dismounting, advanced to where the officers had assembled in front, and iu a neat speech presented the lieuten ant with n handsomely finishod dress sword or regulation pattern. Lientcnani Biggor was too much taken bv surprise to acknowl edge the attention and Captain W. Davis, of Company C, responded for him In very ap propriate tonus. Promptly at 4 o'clock, the time set in orders, the six regiments of infantry, Battery B, and the troop of cavalry had massed in line In brigade formation. Tho regimental bands, headed by the brigade band, were stationed on the right flank. Tho picket lines were stationed nt about one third distance on the ground from the cant) lines, and on the rising ground opposite, r the railroad side, a goodly number of spec tators had assembled to witness tho proceed ings. At i o'clock sharp, with military punctuality, the Governor nnd his staff moved from the division headquarters and took up a position at the base of the rising ground alluded to. Some little time was here lost on account of an oversight on the part of the Commander. THE BOYS MADE A FINE SHOWING. When the Governor and his staff had taken their positions at tho reviewing point the regiments were already in tho field, in lisht marching order, and in brigade front formation. The customary manevuer of presenting the brigade to tho Governor was performed, and the command for close order given. Next came the command "Prepare to pass in review: companies, right wheel," and executed. This brought tho brigade into companies front, prepared to march in company front formation past the reviewing point. At this point it was discovered that General Wiley bad been guilty of a very serious oversight In not allowing the Gover nor and his staff to troop the line, a cere mony invariable in reviews. The regiments were then once more brought Into brigade front, and the evolutions gone thiough with again. The command, "Bear open older" was given, and shortly after the Governor and his stair cantered down to tne right ot the line. The brigade band struck up a quickstep and tho reviewing officer with his staff passed along the line, returning along the rear. Coming up on the" right flank again, the Governor mounted on "Sleepy Frank," Major McCandless' steed, led the pace at such a rate that his staff made a very considerable tail, only pulling up at the reviewing point some moments alter the Governor had taken up his position. The march past followed. The brigadeband led, playing a quickstep, followed bv the regi mental fife and drum corps. The Tenth, with the gaiiant ana soiuicriy uoionei Haw kins at its head, led the column, and no regi ment on the ground beat the Tenth, either in point of equipment, appearance or in marching. The Fifteenth followed, and the general appearance of this regiment would have been better if its last company had donned tha regulation leggins. The Eight eenth camo next, fully equipped of good physique, and marching well, dividing with the Tenth the honors for all round merit. Following came the Fifth, with hut one staff officer, its Colonel, riding at the head, the rest being distributed along the line. Tho regiment was well equipped. The First Company of the Sixteenth Regi ment lclt its leggins indoors, and the Fourteenth following made a capital show ing, the boys marching well, in good align ment and steadily. This regiment was the only one that entirely dispensed with the leggins, and for that reason looked just a little ragged. HOW THE BATTERIES WORKED. Battery B, with its four guns, and;theJSher idan troop of 63 men, but two short of;its full muster, completed tho columns. Cap tain Jones, of the troop, is proud of the snowing made by his command, nnd ho has reason to be. The troop is raised in three counties, Blair, Huntingdon and Center, and has four armories. The most the men can accomplish is squad drill, and it is only on occasions of this kind that the command can be brought together for tactical evolutions. Captain Jones kept his m'en out for an hour after tho review and gave them a little work over the ground. The troops charged twice in good stylo to the admiration and applause of the spectators. Battery B also had a crack at drill, but the imantry were dismissed to quarters, the last to go in being the Tenth. Colonel Hankins got on his horso and seemed irresolute as to whether to give his lads a turn or not. "Let them off this time," suggested a by stander. Genial Lieutenant Colonel Streeter second ed the motion, and the Colonel, acquiescing, dismissed his command, to tho gratification of the boys. Colonel Hawkins said his lads had done well and he felt proud of them. Governor Pattison, when the review was over, shook hads with General Wiley and then returned with the staff to division headquarters, while the brigade commander filed on" in the opposite direction with his staff. From this until 6.30 o'clock the Governor was engaged in conversing with friends and' In taking luncheon preparatory to leaving for Harrisburg. During a few minutes con versation the Governor expressed himself as being well pleased with the surroundings of the Second Brigade. "The brigade compares," he said, "very favorably with the others and!has made a very tavorable showing, indeed. The efficiency of the guard Is improving year by year, and the' work done during my presence m camp is such as is calculated to improve res emciency still lurtuer. PLEASED WITH THE GROUND. The Governor thought the parade ground an excellent one, and could see no reason why anyone should find fault with it. Ho thought it one of the best he had yet visited. Pievious to the review the Governor, with his staff, mado an Inspection of each legl mental quarters. The only absentee from the staff, it was remarked, was Lieutenant Colonel James B. Hunsicker, whose con conduct toward Lieutenant and Adjutant Charles Reese, of the Eighteenth Regiment, will form tho subject of a courtmartial In quiry. This episode was generally discussed yesterday, the more especially as an effort was made to stay proceedings. The matter lies between an officer of tho guard, Colonel Hunsicker, who was commissioned in February of this year, as aide de camp, and another officer of the guard. Adjutant Bcese. who has seen 15 years ser vice. Colonel Hunsicker, on Monday, en tered tho Eighteenth Beglment quarters, and, accosting the Adjutant of tho regl ment in an informal and irregular manner, desired him to form his regi ment at once- Ho simply addressed tho Adjutant as "Reese," and thot officer was unaware be was being spoken to offi cially. The more so a3 that if Colonel Hun sicker had orders from headquarters to im part to the Eighteenth Regiment, he shonld have addressed himself to the Colonel, in his absence to the Lieutenant Colonel, and failing the chiefs to the Adjutant, Colonel Hunsicker afterwards accused the Adjutant of tho Eighteenth of using unofficial language, a charge which his comrades deny he used. The general impression is that the aide de camp was too hasty and unaware of the regulations. Colonel A D. Seeley was staff officer of the day, and so efficient and courteous was he in the discharge of his duty at division head quarters as to storm the hearts of a numer ous bevy of ladies who adorned tho Gover nor's quarters. In recognition of the Colonel's good qualities they tendered him a little surprise, and mado him blush again by hanging a chaplet ofnnedals, 11 or 16 in num ber, around his neck. The genial Colonel is officer of the day until next encampment. VISITORS AT THE CAMP. Among the visitors to the camp yesterday were Mrs. Dr. Wiley, Miss Carrie Wiley, and "The Daughter of the Regiment," as the Eighteenth's Surgeon Major's little girl Is called; ex-Sheriff J. P. Wiley, of York, as tiie surgeon's guest: Mrs. General Wiley and Mfss Florence Wiley, Mrs. Colonel Mc Kibbin, Mrs. Colonel Smith and Miss Fanny Smith, John Hazlctt, Timothy O'Leary, Jr;, Mr. Metcalf, General Guthrie, Colonel E. Z. Brecfc, of Breck's Battery; Mrs. Streeter, Mrs. Dork, Miss Creps, Miss Davis and Mrs. Davis. Mrs. Dr. Easton, Miss Lilian Easton and John Easton were guests at tho Fourteenth Regiment headquarters. John Oliver and his little son were in camp. Captain James Gorden, formerly of Company E, Eighteenth Regiment, was a guest of his old command. Signal Sorgeant Stewart, having predicted decent weather for the day, concluded he might abide by, and run down to the camp. He did so in company of Mr. Gleffer, of Post office Department. Jame M. Nellis, a former First Lieutenant of Company B, Eighteenth Beglment, spent the day with his old com pany. General Snowden lost his watch durlnjr the reviow. He valued it at $200, but prized it the more because it was a heirloom. The General is much put out about the affair,. nnu tnreatens to una a scan appointment ior the man who finds it. LIKE THE OLD LOVES BEST. Fittsbnrg Belles Not In Favor of Tights or the Divided Skirt Dressmakers Have No Call for Them Hints to the Bo formers. The excitement over woman's dress re reform, that is now in progress at Chautau qua, docs not seem to have reached Pitts burg in any other form than newspaper dis cussion. The people of this city do not take kindly to startling innovations. Especially is this true of women's dress. Mrs. Parker and her followers may talk about the divided skirt and silk tights, but our dainty Pittsburg women do not care for tbem. They prefer to array themselves in the soft, clinging garments, that have always been in vogue, and to leave the bold depart ures in costume to strong-minded females and those who are willing to follow blindly any leador, no matter whera the trail may end. A DisrATcn representative yesterday vis ited a number of tho principal modistes of the two cities, to find out whether the di vided skirt was being worn generally in Pittsburg. One dressmaker in Allegheny, who does a large business among the rich women of the city, said: x "I cannot answer for other dressmakers, bnt I know that I do not moke any dresses of that pattern. In all my experience 1 have had only 0110 order for a new-fangled, di vided skirt dress. Tho purchaser of that particular dress got it only as an experi ment, I suppose, for she never had another, and she Is one ot my regular customers, too, who spends a great deal of money on her clothes in the course of a year." "Why does not the divided skirt become popular, if it is as comfortable as dress re formers say?" asked the reporter. The dressmaker smiled knowingly as she answered: "What do women dress fort" As she evidently waited for a response, the reporter gave it In the shape of a mysti fied shake of the head. "Well. I'llrtell you," went on the dress maker. "She dresses to please her male friends and relatives her husband or lover more than anyone else. She knows that a plain divided skirt and severe waist would not suit them. They like her to look pretty, although a woman's beauty does not depend upon her costume, the way in which sne Is dressed has a great deal to do with her pre possessing appearance. When the dress re formers have hit upon something that is really prettier than the present style of dress, we may expect to see It generally adopted. In the meantime, I and other dressmakers will find ourselves getting up the same sort of garment for our customers that we have hitherto." Another dressmaker, on the Pittsburg side, said that she had never been asked to make one of the new-fangled dresses. She had many customers among the belles of the East End, and perhaps one-fourth of them were cyclists or wanted to be such. They had sometimes laughingly asked her whether she could not make them a divided skirt that would be convenient for riding the wheel, but tho proposition had never be come serloas. "What do you think of the dress reform, proposed by tho ladies at Chautauquat" asked the reporter. "Fudge," was the sententious and signifi cant reply. BLOCK STOKE TOO NOISY. The Commissioners Want East Diamond Street Paved with Asphalt. County Commissioner Weir called at City Hall yesterday afternoon to have an inter view with Chief Bigelow relative to the pav ing of Diamond street between Grant and Boss streets, but Mr. Bigelow being out of the city the meeting will havo to be post poned until his return. Tho County Commissioners have paved Ross street with asphalt and desire Diamond street paved with the same material. Ross street was done at the county's expense, but Diamond street will be paved by the city and the" contract has already been awarded for a block-stone pavement, although the work has not yet commenced. "Wo hope to persuade Mr. Bigelow to change the contract to asphalt for Diamond street," said Mr. Weir j-estcrday, "because of tho noise made by the lulling of wagons over tho olock-stone pavement. We paved Ross street with asphalt so the noise would not annoy the Criminal Court rooms, and the same consideration demands that Diamond street bo paved so that the Orphans' Court and the Coroner's Court shall not be an noyed. Asphalt will be much cleaner also and will lessen tho annoyance from dust. We believe Mr. Bigelow will grant us the change." FEBBY BOATS TO 8HABPSBTJBG. Business Men Find Their Teams Greatly Delayed by the Traction Lines. Arthur Kirk, on behalf of several promin ent business men is organizing a company to run a line or lerry steamers from the foot of Sixth street or the Monongahela wharf to Sharpsburg. The idea is to carry the teams of wholesale dealers and others to Sharpsburg and thus save much time otherwise lost by teamsters being compelled. to continually pull out of the way of tho cable cars. It now takes nearly a day's time todiive to one ot the suburbs and re turn whereas it could formerly be done in half the time. This has greatly delayed business of all kind and started the Idea of utilizing the river. Mr. Kirk spent yesterday discussing tho subject with the river men and they seem to .think the idea practicable. Among the, business men interested in the proposed ferry line are J. C. Jenkins, S. S. Marvin, Dilworth Brothers, Heinz Brothers and others, who are willing to guarantee $2,000 as a starter for a company who will go Into the business. DB, B0BEBT60N AGAIN. The Southside Physician It Charged With. Another Very Serious Offense. Dr. J. W. Robertson, the Duquesne Heights physician who figured so conspicuously be fore tho publto recently with the wife of a Diamond Market commission man, is again to the front in a similar role. Yesterday Miss Teresa Souder, a domestic in the employ of S. Koustauzer, with whom Robertson boards, filed a complaint with Alderman Grlpp, charging the doctor with assault. A warrant was issued for tho physician and an officer sent oat to arrest He found the physician's office crowded with patients awaiting his arrival, but he seemed to be so busy In some other part of the city that he failed to put in an appear ance. The girl, who is 20 years of age, says that the doctor assaulted heron three former occasions. At a late hour last night he had not been arrested. . ' Harcourt Place Seminary.

The other members of the committee are Blaser Gottfried, Alex Scburch, Adolph Luder, A. J. Simon, llobert Lenhart and Chris Katheu. The committee is composed entirely of the descendants of those who COO years ago signed the document that bound together the three Swiss cantons, thus forming an independent union of a beautiful and inter esting rock-ribbed and mountainous conn try. Allegheny county is full of these people. It is estimated that 10,000 Swiss? descendants are residents of this State. And it is fully expected that fron 2,000 to 3,000 of them will be identified with the coming demonstration. August 1 is the day upon which the an niversary of the signing of the Swiss Declaration of Independence occurred, but it is being observed generally throughout the world during the whole of the present month. The day fixed for the local demon stration is August 31. The "Verein der Soehne "NVinkelrieds," "Schweizer Maen nerchor Helvetia," "Schweitzer Bund," and the "Section des Kbrd-Amerikanischen Gruetlibunds," are the four leading so cieties that will participate in celebrating the day- that is so dear to all the descendants of William Tell. VISIONS PR03I THE ALPS. Tho numbers will be greatly augmented by representatives from almost every German singing society, all the turn vereins and benevolent associations In Allegheny county, together witn other societies from Johnstown, Wheeling, Braddock, McKees port and other points in Western Pennsyl vania, Eastern Ohio and West Virginia. The programme has only been partially arranged. This much has been decided on: There will be a parade in the morning over the principal streets of Pltttsburg and Allegheny, many of the par ticipants being decked with costumes such as the original Swiss wore, not too oriirinal. perhaps, but of a sufficiently modern time to allow such a garb to be donned with dignity and security. After the parade special trains will convey the people out the West Penn road to Ross' Grove. Here the festivi ties proper will bo held. They will consist principally of speeches and sports. It will be a large sized picnic, "a la Suisse," and the committee in chargo has undertaken to make the day one that will make glad the hearts of those who par ticipate. Speeches will be made in German by Dago bert Deucher, Rev. U. Hangartner, Mr. Max Schamberg and others. Mayors Gourloy and Wyman will be invited and probably one or the other will deliver an English address. Mr. Deucher, who is to deliver the principal address of the day, is a full cousin of a present member of the Swiss Bundesrath or Executive Cabinet. The sports will be the most interesting and novel features of the day. They will consist of Swiss wrestling, stone-lifting and stone-throwing and shooting. The latter pastime will be indulged in by the use of crossbows similar to the one with which William Tell is popularly supposed to have poked a hole in Gessler's hat and other feats of more or less difficulty in those days before people bothered themselves about natural gas bills or high and low tariffs, will be introduced. SPORTS OF TIIE DARK AGES. Anything else that can be foupd by the committeo bearing anything like tho im print of the land of Glaciers will be ferreted out and made a part of the day's progamme. A number of the committee In speaking of the demonstration last night said: "So peo ple appreciate liberty like the American. The Swis3 have a lasting reverence for the day upon which the three small forest can tons banded themselves into a league of per petual alliance. It was no desire for startling reform that lead those people into the covenant. The Confederation was formod simply for the purpose of checking tne inroads 01 tneir opponents. Switzer land is the oldest Republic, and many or her descendants are among the most prominent residents of Allegheny county. You will be surprised at seeing so many participate in the demonstration, "which will undoubtedly be one of the most novel celebrations that ever occurred In Allegheny county.

Wilson, the husband of the lady who dropped dead of sunstroke at the mar ket house on Monday, arrived In the city last night af tey several vexatious delays en route from Vicksburg. He went direct to the Morgue, and was deeply moved when he gazed upon the dead form of his late part ner in life. Mr. Wilson Is a railroad engineer, and wa9 a resident of this city until a few years ago. He mado arrangements to hnve the remains shipped to Xowburg, O., a suburb of Cleve land, where Mrs. Wilson's parents aro buried, and where her body will be Interred. The body will be taken away on the 1 o'clock train this afternoon, and will ho ac companied by Mr. Wilson, his little son and several other relatives). A VERY NARROW ESCAPE. The Flint Scale Settled by a Mere Scratch It Required a Compromise to Beach an Agreement Tlie 2few Company Beady to Operate. The conference between the pressed ware manufacturers and the representatives of the American Flint Glass Workers Union narrowly escaped a termination similar to that of the conferences on tho window glass and green bottle scales of a week ago. Two or three previous confor ferences have been held and recesses wero taken without arriving at'an amicable agree ment. Tho workmen this vear had intro duced a clause reducing tho time in which a -move" snail De maue to lour ana one half instead of five hours. The manufacturers objected, on general principles, because, about every other yKar or so this same clause had providea for a reduction in time until n turH must now be made in formerly reaulred six. five hours, while it xne directors or tho new United States Glass Company held a meeting yesterday during the noon recess and unanimously de cided that the Executive Committee should not accept the proposition of the men to make another reduction of half an hour. D. C. Ripley was seen after this meet ing, when he made the following very significant statement: "Our company has everything in readiness to begin opera tions with the next fire, but I would not be surprised not to see a factory start. We will not operate if the men Insist upon the adop tion of tho rour and one-half hour clause." When tho conference committees met in tho afternoon It looked very much as If tho two sides would lock horns and fail to settle the matter. The meeting lasted until after 6 o'clock. "It's all settled," said Mr. Smith, smiling. "Wo compromised on four and three and a half hours, nnd you can say that the fac tories will run." President Smith left Inst nirfit for Phila delphia, where a conference is to be held to day. The otherincmbers of the Conference Committee left for their respective homes. The settlement of this dispute places tho flint workers in a hotter position than either the window or green bottle workers. The new glass company which is to control the tableware houses will soon establish headquarters on the Southside. A new and handsome four-story building is now in the course of erection 011 tho property ad joining President Ripley's office, and in it all tho general officers of the company will have their headquarters. SECUBED THE THJTJNCTIOir. Moorhcad Bro. & Co. Would Not Walt on, Judge Stogie's Return. Moorhead Bro. & Co. secured a preliminary injunction yesterday to restrain their em ployes Who are now on strike from interfer ing with those at work. A hearing will bo had Saturday before Judge Stowe. The former employes of the firm ridicule tho idea of an injunction, as they have not been near the milt since the striko occurred. Of the 66 puddlers on strike there are only six or eight of them idle, the remainder are working in the mill at Bennett station or elsewhere. One of the workmen mentioned In the bill has been w orklng at the pork house millin Woods' Run since the Sharpsburg mill has been closed down and says he can piove he has .not been in the neighborhood of the mill. Tho citizensor Sharpsburg have been com menting all along upon the quiet and gen tlemanly manner In which the strikers have conducted therasel es. Another heating furnace was started in the mill yesterday and it looks as if Mr. Moorhcad would carry Into effect his threat to operate his plant with non-union men. President Weihe, of the Amalgamated Asso ciation, was at Canonsburg yesterday set tling a local dispute. Tho officials have, therefore, had no time to act on the Sharps burg matter. "WILL TAKE THEM AWAY. The Bricklayers of Philadelphia Beturn Ing to the Quaker City. President Wm. Campbell, of the BricKlay ers' Association in Philadelphia, is in Pitts burg for the purpose of taking home soma of his members who are working in Pitts burg. He and Agent O'Brien visited oil jobs yosterday afternoon where men are at work, and he expressed himself last night as feel ing confident that ho would take all his members away again, thus leaving the mas ter bricklayers in the same position they were before the Eastern men came. A statement was made yesterday that the master bricklayers had endeavored to keep Mr. Campbell from coming to Pittsburg. None of them could be found last night to affirm or deny the story. . Declared It Illegal. Tho strike of beer drivers employed by Winter Brothers has been declared illegal by Branch Xo 22, of tho B. W. U. BIG EXCITESI0N BUSINESS. The Atlantic City Train on the B. & O. This Morning Will Be Crowded. This morning the Baltimore and Ohio will carry the biggest excursion party of the season to Atlantic City. Tho sweltering weather of the past few days seems to havo had a wonderful effect on the railroad busi ness, and as a consequence, ticket sellers have bad to hustle harder than is conducive to comfort, but they seemed pleased now that it is over. Passenger Agent Smith says that to-day's excursion will be the most successful the road ever gave to Atlantic City. Xine par lor cars were sold out, and it was found im possible to secure more from the Pullman Company in time to be of service. As a con sequence those who failed to secure parlor car privileges before yesterday noon t ill be compelled to accent common coaches. While a large number of Pittsburgers will go, there will also be several parties from surrounding cities. Temporary location. The Pittsburg Female College will be located temporarily in the north wing of the college building on Eighth street, and in the Jewish Temple on the opposite side of the street from the college.

The Coroner's Verdict in the Elba Iron Works Accident. CEDIINALCARELESSNE'SSCHARGED The Eemoval of the Gny Ropes Caused the Tall Smoke Stacks to Fall. A MODEL OP THE BUILDING EXHIBITED The inquest in the cases of Kartik Bal cnt, Stephen Dobak and Andrew Zidik, the three men killed by the falling of smoke stacks and the collapse of a new iron build ing at the Elba Iron Works July 29, was concluded yesterday and the verdict created a great surprise, involving, as it did, the responsibility for the accident Jlost of the testimony in this important cose was taken on the day after the acci dent, while a number of the wounded men were yet unable to appear and testify. On this account and the sickness of Coroner McDowell the cose was continued nntil yes terday. The testimony, a condensed report of which is herewith published, is very contradictory, showing that the employes of both the Elba works and Biter & Conley were not in touch when it came to points placing the responsibility. The im portance of the verdict, which charges the Elba Company with gross carelessness and neglect, is fully appreciated from the fact that it opens the way for innumerable dam age suits. A MODEL SllOVrS IN EVIDENCE. Messrs. Biter & Conley, in order to make matters clear, produced a tin model of the structure they had been erecting. It showed how the building was erected and secured, and the plates and fastenings, and that it was substantial enough for all ordinarypur poses. Among tho witnesses present yesterday was Joseph P. Farrcll. Ho was a laborer at the iron works. On the day of the accident he said he knew something and wanted to tell It. He said he had been told to get out of town, but rerused to do so. lie also went to the office of a newspaper and hud himself interviewed. He wns subpoenaed at the in quest at his own request, bus wheu the time came he did not appear. Tho Coroner issued a process for him and he was arrested and brought in yester day. When placed on the stand he immedi ately proceeded to retract all he had said. He said he knew nothing, and did not know why he had talked as he had. He was closely questioned, and it was made apparent that he knew nothing. Coroner McDowell then gave him a severe reprimand for talking too much and sent him home. John Saegcr, an engineer at the Elba Iron Works, was placed on the stand. He did not see the building fall. He noticed that the fourth truss of the building was out of plumb and leaned toward Second avenue. The stacks were inside the trusses. He was at nis engine when the crash came. He said he saw some men at a line attached to the truss pulling at it. Philip Sntton, also an engineer at the Iron works, testified to having seen a line put on the truss. He heard the crash and ran out of the building. The fourth truss had fallen and caused the fourth stack to fall. It brought the other stacks, and tho building, he thought, fell before the stacks. William Bros, a machinist at the iron works, testified to having seen men pulling on a girder, then the building and stacks fell. He was afraid to go in the building the day before as he had not thought It safe. George Lemon said the farthest stuck fell first and the others followed. COULDN'T HAVE BEEN PUIAED. Thomas Alen corroborated this testimony. He also worked for Rlter & Conley. The trusses could not have been pulled down, he said. William M. Simmons, abridge builder, also testified that the stack fell first and caused the building to fall. William Meyers and Christ Rodcers. both bridge builaers, also testified to the security 1 01 tne Dunning, ana inat tne accident was caused by the stack. - After some further testimony the inquest closed, and the jury rendered Its verdict. The j nry,af ter finding that themen came to their deaths by the accidents, further found "that tho said building falling was due to said stacks not being supported by guy lines properly and a jar causing them to fall upon said building as they were top heavy, and further find that there was gross negligence on the part of said Elba Iron Works car em ployees in not properly securing said stacks; nnd we recommend more care and caution on the part of all builders at such buildings as are described in this accident, for the safety of lives of tho public and employes."
