inch women 4s he had known several of
them to reform and lead better Jives. 'The
infidelity of onr people is to blame to a
certain extent," Mr. Donehoo concluded.
The Mayor then notified the ministers
that a gentleman who refused' the use ot his
came had handed him $100 to be used for
the benefit of the unfortunates. He said
he would turn the money over to any com
mitte the ministers might name to receive
it' He then urged the appointment of a
committee as the best possible way to cet
at the wort for which they had' been called
Bev. Mr. Sands and Dr. Littell' assured
the Mayor that the church people of the
city would sustain his course, and both
pledged him their confidence and help, but
the Mayor assured both that he was not
seeking public applause in the matter. He
said he was onlv endeavoring to do his duty
as he saw if regardless of whom he pleased
or displeased.
lie v. Dr. Miles, one of the managers of
the Bethesda Home, assured the meeting
that his institution was open to any of the
outcasts who wanted a home thc-xe. He eaid
the home could accommodate 50 of the wo
men, and that they would- be delighted to
have them if they'evidenced any desire to
reform. He questioned gravely whether any
of the women wanted to chance their lives,
and he said with some emphasis that any
who did could find help and comfort at the
Betbseda institution.
Taking a Common-Sense View.
Rev. Dr. Hodges said he did not thint
the ends sought lor will he attained. "The
condition now confronting us is indeed a
grave one," Mr. Hodges said. "To drive
the women from their resorts is like treat
ing a sore on the body and spreading the
disease all through the system. I think
that a blunder was made at the bottom of
the whole business, but since it is upon us
we should look the matter squarely in the
face and do what we can ior these women.
I don't think the closing of these houses
will reform these women, but I am willing
to lend a helping hand."
Bev. Dr. Miller, an old gentleman whose
hair and beard were white as chalk, had
little sympathy with the women. He said
he had no moiiey to give the outcasts, and
he would not give them money if he had it.
He had no confidence in their professions to
reform. He denounced them all as law
breakers, and lie Insisted that they should
be punished as other criminals. The work
house, lie said, was the proper place for all
ol them. "Let the county take care of the
outcasts," Mr. Miller concluded. He said
he was a pastor of a small congregation out
Penn avenue.
I'.ev. M. Stanton agreed with Rev. Mr.
Miller. He did not believe that the women
who came to the Mayor the dav previous
crjitur ior relorm, wanted any reform. He
said the women were doing all this for
tliow. He argued that there are tricks in
all trades and he argued that if the women
knew that the Mayor had $100 to disburse
for their uses that all of them would want
to reform until the money was (-one.
1'rau.e for Francis Murphy.
This rather nettled the Mayor. He
swung himself unpatientlj in his chair, his
pleasant face clouded and his features
twisted like one in anger. Then he said:
"Look here, gentleman. I grossly
question the methods you would apply.
1 rather believe in the means employed by
Fraucis Murphy. He goes down among the
drunkard, He extends to them a helping
hand and he lifts them up. f-Tou preach to
the same 100 or 200 people every Sunday
and von never go outside to hunt sinners. '
This was accepted by the brethren as a
rather pointed thrust at them. They looked
earnestly ut each other, and all seemed lost
ior a.i answer. Finally Rev. Mr. Donehoo
straightened himself in the easy chair he
occjpicd, and with some emnhasis said: "X
don't think so, Mr. Mavor."
""-Veil. I do think io," the Mayor an
swered quickly. "I admit," His Honor
went on, "that you occasionally get a
tinner into j our church to hear you preach,
hut I hare "no knowledge of your coing
down among the sinners to help them."
'Vh) don't you go down among them?"
lte. Mr. Miller asked sarcastically.
"It is not my place to go down among the
criminals ana law-breakers," the Mayor
answered emphatically.
Miss Kurd, a missionary who wai among
the women present, realizing that the dis
play oi temper might destroy the work for
which thev had gathered, uskedtobe heard.
Miis Kurd is a sweet faced little woman.
She is rather liaudsome. She was sincere
and earnest and her sweet voice rang out
in the room like a silver belL
The War to Reclaim Outcasts.
She said that she could not make a speech
but sl.e believed that the way to reclaim the
outcasts was to co among them. "I believe
we should go among them," she said. "I
go among ttieni every day. These women
want lore. They want divine love. There
are hopes for many of these women but to
reclaim them we must go to their homes
and throw our arms about them and pray
with them and for them."
"It may be all right for you to throw
jour arms about these women, Miss Burd,"
Rev. Littell said, "but it w ould not do for
me to do it. I would be glad to go to these
women. 1 love mv sisters, good and bad,
and I would go to these now if X knew
where to find them."
"I would be glad to lead you to their re
sorts," Miss Burd taid. "I have found
them ready to receive anyone who ii will
ing to talk and pray with them, and I am
confident many of them can be reclaimed if
the ministers wili extend a helping hand.
I "
"How long have you been at work and
how manv of these women have you re-c'alme-l?"
Rev. E. R. Donehoo interrupted.
"I have only started in the work I was
about to explain myself," the little woman
"Those who are about to lny off the armor
ere mere competent to talk than those who
are about to put it on," Rev. Mr. Donehoo
remarked with a smile.
Major Gourley said he thought there was
a great deal ot truth in Miss Burd's re
marks. Rev. Mr. Donehoo also took exceptions
to the Mayor's remarks. He said Miss
Burd had no right to arraign the ministers..
Mr. Donehoo liaises an Objection.
Mr. 1'farr, representing the Salvation
Army, said he, too, wanted to indorse the
sentiments expressed by Miss Burd. The
gentleman was about to make an extended
speech when Rev. Donehoo, now
thoroughly aroused and more or less indig
nant, jumped to his feet and with his voice
trembling with passion, said: "Mr. Mayor,
I was led to believe that this was to be a
meeting of ministers."
A few explanations followed. Miss
Burd said she had no disposition to arraign
the ministry. She was disposed rather to
applaud them. Mr. Pfarr explained that
he was not a minister, but that he was a
Christian" gentleman, and that be was pres
ent to help the cause. The explanations
rattier embarrassed the meeting, and by
way of relief Rev. Dr. Sands moved that a
committee be appointed to whom the Mayor
could refer any of the women who wanted
to reform, and for whom homes would be
found. Mr. Sands started to came this
committee, and placed among others the
names of members of the Salvatiou Army
on the list Several of those present ob
jected on the ground that the committee
should consist of ministers alone. It was
finally decided that the committee should
consist of RevsLittell, Donehoo, Gisler.
Applegarth, Hodges and Miss E. I Burd.
A motion wu also adopted that Mayor
Gourley continue to enforce the laws, and
the ministers guaranteed him their sup
port. Before leaving the ministers united in
assuring the Mayor that they would be in
dustrious in their efforts to take care of the
women when the places are closed. They
also assured His Honor that the House of
the Good Shepherd, on Troy Hill, the'
Bethesda Home, the Bethany Home and
the Christian Home of Allegheny were all
open to the outcasts.
A Home for an Outcast.
After the meeting had adjourned and be
fore the gathering; had dispersed, an old
lady was ushered into the Mayor's private
office. She looked about her like one
thoroughly frightened. She was plainly
on' npfltlv 3r0r TTa. tnnHl tttrl nt
her being a widow. Her round full face,
kindly as & mother's, without a mark other
than that ot Christian charity, flushed a
trifle when she faced the gathering. She
took the seat nearest the door, and she
looked anxiously about, evidently looking
for a familiar figure. When Mayor Gour
ley turned to her she arose, extended her
hand and in a voice trembling slightly she
"Mavor,, I have come to ofler you my
blessing. Ton have done your duty. I will
ever pray for you. While X prar for you
I will also pray for the outcasts. I have
at mv home a spare room, with a comforta
ble bed for two, which I wish to extend to
any of these women who will come and live
with me and reform. My name is Mrs.
John Williams. I live at 2714 Carson
street, Southside."
Then the old lady bowed politely, and
without ceremony left the room.
"God bless you," the Mayor said, as the
figure in black passed out into the streets,
taking with her enough real affection to
warm the world.
The condemned houses were all opened
last night, and there was general rejoicing
among the women.
Some of Kttsbnr-r's Outcasts Go to McKees-
port for Locations.
A dispatch from McKeesport says: The
real estate dealers and agents of this city
have been besieged to-day by applications
for houses to rent to the women whom the
authorities intend driving out of Pittsburg.
Xt was not known until late in the day that
the powers-that-he at Pittsburg had fallen
out over the execution of the Mayor's
order and that the weak sisters had been
given more time, bnt there was no apparent
let up in the quest for houses even after
the fact was known. Xn most cases they
met with unconditional refusals, but it is
said that some of them succeeded in. rent
ing. Mayor Tilbrook says he can do noth
ing to prevent them coming here so long as
they deport themselves properly.
They Appoint Committees to Help Care for
the Outcasts.
The ladies of the Filth Avenue M. E.
Church held a meeting yesterday afternoon
to consider the advisability of assisting the
women affected by the police order closing
the disorderly houses of the city. A com
mittee was appointed to act for the church
Meetings of a similar nature were held by
the womeu of other churches in the city
and at each meeting committees were ap
pointed to act with the authorities of the
charitable institutions in caring for the out
casts. Many Gone to Wheeling.
A dispatch from Wheeling says: A num
ber of the women banished from Pittsburg
were reported to be in Wheeling laBt night.
A few girls secured rooms here. Chief of
Police McNichols gave the women who
were thought likely to harbor them orders
not to do so, on pain of arrest, and the
women promised to respect the order.
He Signs a Murphy Pledge A Touching
Scene Enacted The Meetings Becoming
More Interesting Large Crowds Listen
to the Great Temperance Reformer.
There was a little scene enacted at La
fayete Hall last night that those who hap
pened to be present will not forget. The
Francis Murphv temperance meeting had
just been organized and the hall was more
than comfortably crowded with men,
women and children eager to hear the
words ot temperance and encouragement
from the lips of the great apostle of
temperance. Mr. Murphy had just
finished the reading of the gospel
and Prof. Weeden was about to
announce the opening hymn when there
arose in the middle of the audience a man
whose appearance indicated that he had
been dissipating. This man, in a deep
penitent voice, begged Mr. Murphy and
those present to pray for him. The prayer
that followed was long and fervent and the
man sat with bowed head and tear-stained
clieek A few minutes later the man ap
proached the stage and in company with
Mr. Murphy knelt down on the stage and
prayed long and loud together. The choir
and audience in the meantime sang with
deep earnestness that stirring old hvmn,
"Jesus Will Carry You Through." "The
two men arose, and the one leaning on the
arm of the other walked over to the little
table, and with a "God help me" affixed his
name to a pledge. Xt was then, announced
that the man was an ex-minister of the
gospel, who had fallen by the. wayside.
The meeting of itself was a big success.
Mr. Murphy made one of his stirring
J. M. Kelly spoke of the good work be
ing done by the Kceley League. Addresses
were made by A. M. Brown, J. W. More
land and others. Another meetinir will be
held at Lafayette Hall to-night and Sunday
afternoon at 3 o'clock in Carnegie Hall,
Allegheny. '

Robinson's Peculiar Politics.

Chester county, was a visitor in the city
yesterday. He declares himself a candidate

predicts a victory for his opponent in the

His Canvass for" Senator
Quay's Shoes Still Going
on Vigorously.
Interesting Political Talk bj
Warwick's Successor.
Earnestly Promised by the Citizens'
dnstrial Alliance,
' Frank Case, chief lieutenant for Con
gressman Dalzell, was at the Union depot
last evening to have a final interview with
the little lawmaker before he started for
Washington to be present at the opening of
Congress. Mr. Dalzell was scheduled to
leave from the station, but instead the fast
line stopped at Hawkins for him, so Mr.
Case didn't have the chat he expected. ,
"Isv Dalzell still a candidate for the
United States Senate?" was asked.
"What," replied Mr. Case, with some
show of astonishment and repeating the
question, "is he still a candidate? Why he
was never out of the race, and will be in it
to the end. And by the way, Senator Quay
will not have the easy walkover that
he anticipates. Several months ago X
visited many of the legislative
candidates from the northwestern counties,
and I was favorably received and premised
their support for Dalzell. I haven't seen
them since the election, but it is needless
to say that most of them were elected. I
have made all my arrangements to start out
on an active canvass for Dalzell in a few
days. In a short time the Allegheny county
delegation will indorse the Congressman,
and this will be the basis of my work. I
don't like to give away secrets, but have a
little patience and you will see where Mr.
Dalzell stands."
Tho Dalzell Bureau Still Active.
The Dalzell bureau that was organized
last spring to boom the Congressman and
later was abandoned is not dead, and its
members individually are at work trying to
secure pledges from rural members. The
Philadelphia delegation is lost, ot course,
but the plan is to unite the country and the
smaller towns against the Eastern metropolis
It is understood that the Dalzell people'are
trying to prevent the re-election of Senator
Quay if they find that their candidate can't
win out Congressman Jack Robinson,
with his little boom, hasn't been heard
from for some time, hut it is safe to say
when the vote is taken at Harris
burg he will be on hand urging
his friends in the Legislature to
stand by Quay. Farmer Taggart, of
Montgomery county, may be a candidate.
If he is, it is argued that he will hurt Dal
zell more than the Beaver Statesman. John
Cessna is putting in some good licks ior the
local Congressman in Central Pennsylvania.
It has been, war to the knife with him for
some years so far as Senator' Quay is con
cerned, and if '(ho old man could lick
Matthew Stanlny for the Senate he would be
content to die in peace. But the chances
are strongly against him.
Congressmen Flocking to Washington.
The reopening of Congress on Monday is
taking the members to Washington just
now at a lively rate. Some of Ihetn have
been at the capital for a month arranging
their homes and work for the winter, but
the bulk of them will tumble into the town
like a lot of sheep between this time and
Sunday evening. Colonel W. A. Stone
sent his family last evening, and will follow
to-night. Tjie Western delegations are
scheduled to pass through Pittsburg to
day. Last evening Congressman Shiuely, of
Indiana, a son-in-law of George A. Jenk.s;
Hurd, of St. Louis, and L. T. Obliger, of
Wooster, the successor to Warwick, were
among the Washington passengers. The
trio are Democrats. Young Shively is one
of the ablest ot his party in the House, bnt
after serving four terms he declined a re
nomination, and turned his seat over to an
other South Bend citizen. His example is
rare and worthy of emulation in the field oi
national politics.
"I have been through the mill," he sa'd,
anu nave naa enougn. une experience in
trying to distribute Federal patronage sat
isfied me, and I am content to give the
glory to another. I was a Crisp man, and
I think the country and' the members are
well pleased with him. I expect to see him
re-elected Speaker without opposition from
his party. I haven't heard much Cabinet
gossip, and I take but little stock in what
I hear. These people who think they know
Mr. Cleveland's mind don't know it all.
The Indiana Democrats feel that they ought
to be represented, and I believe that ex
Governor Gray will be tendered a port
folia Shively Favors an Extra Session.
"As for the extra session, I will advocate
the calling of a short term for the appoint
ment of the more important committees,
particularly the Ways and Means and
financial committees. X think the Wavs
Means Committee should sit durincr
summer, and after learning what the
people want frame a iensible and fair tariff
bill to be presented early next December.
In this way no time would be lost, and
there would be no hasty action. 'This is
the danger to be avoided."
Congressman Hurd, of Missouri, is one of
the rabid Southern Democrats. He was re
elected for the fifth time, and is beginning
to think that he owns his district He is
red-hot for an extra session to wipe off" the
statute books "the robber tariff law," as he
calls it. He is rather a talkative citizen,
and claims tbe result of tho election
calls for radical measures. Northern
Democrats are very much afraid that
the fiery Southern 'members will throw
away the fruits of the big victory by insist
ing on Texan free trade, and they are look
ing to Cleveland to hold them in line. Mr.
Hnrd won't sleep easy until the country is
given free raw materials at least
Mr. Ahlinger, being a Buckeye Demo-
21,9 "J

crat, is naturally conservative, and thinks
an extra session of Congress is unnecessary.
The Citizens' Industrial Alliance Getting a
Firm Foothold Workmen Taking Hold
' of the Movement With Earnestness
They Want Reform In City Government.
A branch ot the Citizens' Industrial
Alliance was formed last night in Alle
gheny. The meeting ior the purpose was
held in Schondelmyer's Hall, No. 68 Ohio
street It'was called by .the officers of tho
Industrial Alliance and was conducted by
Charles V. Arbogast, President About CO
were present
President Arbogast made a lengthy ad
dress, in which' he explained the objects
and proposed workings of the Alliance.
He said that it is the intention to organize
branches in every district in the county in
order to secure good, honest and efficient
government The Alllanee had been formed
to oust the county officers, but it had be
come so strong that they felt they must do
something in the municipal election. As a
resuit they have started to organize politi
cal clubs over the cities.
John Frey compared the local condition
of political aflairs with conditions out West
which resulted in the landslide for the ruling
llev. William Kobertscn spoke on the
rights of working men. He urged them to
organize for the purpose of righting all the
wrongs of society as far as possible.
A. M. Swartz, of the Building Trades
Council, urged them to organize, find out
the people coming before them for office and
select good men.
M. Pv Carrick explained that this reform
movement did not resemBle others and
could not be sold out by the leaders.
At the conclusion of the addresses a
number signed the roll of tbe branch or
ganization. It will meet, effect a perma
nent organization and elect a delegate to
the general organization.
Slayor and Controller Nominees Not Tet
Decided Upon.
About the only development in .connec
tion with the Mayoralty contest yesterday
was that the politicians as a rule are not in
favor of Captain Batchelor's candidaoy.
Major Montooth is vastly more popular
among those who are dissatisfied with Dr.
McCandless and there was more talk about
him downtown last night than for several
days. Dr. McCandless has spent the past
two davs at the bedside of his mother who
is very ill. For the time being he is not
doing anything in a political way, devoting
his time to his aged parent whose wishes,
he cays, subordinate everything else in the
world as far as he is concerned. His friends,
however, say they are looking after the
doctor's boom and claim it will he in first
class shape on January L
Mngistrate McKenna is as vigorous as
ever after the Democratic nomination and
claims he will win it easily. Captain Kerr'
delegates have all been set np, it is said,
and while the Captain is not talking him
self his friends talk confidently of his nomi
nation. Owing to Controller Morrow's absence
from the city there'is little being said about
his renomination. Tbe Democrats are dis
cussing Stephen C. McCandless as their
nominee for Controller, but it is claimed
by one faction that McCandless would not
accept the place, and that the boom for him
is intended only to keep Mayor Gourley
out of the race. The talk of the Mayor's
candidacy on a citizens' ticket is still talked
of notwithstanding his declaration not to
be a candidate if Controller Morrow is re
nominated. Under the Baker ballot law
he will have plenty oi time after the Be
publican nominations arc made to decide
what course he will pursue.
Eov. Dr. Hodges Tells Why Women Shonld

President, Dr. McMillen, the Bev. Dr.
Sproul acted as Chairman. Letters of en
couragement to the league were read from
Judge Agnew, ex-State Senator Harlan,
John F. Dravo and the Bev. George
Hodges, pastor of the Calvary Church, of
the East End. Bev. Hodges' letter was
short and written in his usual trenchant
style. Xn it he placed himself on record in
the most emphatic language as believ
ing in the justice and wisdom of
giving women the right to vote, say
ing among other things that it is an ex
ceedingly inconsistent thing to allow
every male out of jail, rascal or ignoramus,
to vote, while female teachers, graduates oi
colleges, and other well educated and re
cnpntnhln women have not the anmn
privilege. He also said that he believed
women to be the best crlterians among us

The official count of the Bandall Club

The Secretary of the Sax-Fox Tribe
- Visits' on His Own Account
Cherokees Will Besist the evening of tbe
fctrlp to Settlers..
O. Walter Battice, Secretary of the Sax
Fox tribe of Indians in the Territory, was
a passenger for Washington last evening.
He was intrusted with a Government mis
sion of which he declined to speak. He was
a bright young man, having been educated
at Hampton and Bridgeport His father-in-law
is Mahkosahtoe, the principal
chief of tbe tribe. Battice is a great be
liever in education for the reds, and says
the Government system of schools Is good.
His tribe will open a new schoolhouse next
week that cost ?13,00Q. Tha Secretary de
nied that tbe young bucks when educated,
in the East become blanketed Indians as
soon as their elothes wear out They may
do this in isolated cases, but it is not the
general rule.
"The opening ot the Cherokee strip in
the spring," he continued, "will cause a
great deal ot trouble and some bloodshed.
The Indians realize that it is only a ques
tion of time until all their reservations will
be thrown open to settlers, but they feel
that they are not ready for it The opening
of the Oklahoma country resulted in con
siderable dissatisfaction, and the Indians
feel sore. The Cherokees are the most
intelligent of the tribes in the
Territory. They are practically civilized,
and through frequent intermarriages have
become two-thirds white. They won't see
their lands taken away from them without
a struggle, and their threats of trouble are
not mere idle boasts. Another thing that
made the Indians tired were the new herd
laws. They were 'intended' to take advan
tage of our people. The regulations lim
ited our pasture lands, and, the laws went
into effect so soon that it was impossible ior
tbe reds to collect their cattle and ponies
that were beyond the lines. These were
gobbled up by the ranchers, aud in many
cases ponies were ransomed for more than
they were worth. The fines were onerous,
and lots of Indians couldn't pay them and
lost their stoct. ;
"As soon as I heard that trouble was
brewing among tbe Cbeyennes and Arrapa
hoes on account of the Government schools,
I paid them a Visit to see what ,1 could do
to persuade them not to fight When I
went into tbe schools and saw the food in
tended for tbe children, my stomach re
volted, and X did not blame the people for
refusing to send their sons and
daughters to the schools. The buildings
were filthy, and the grains, dried fruits,
eta, lull of crawling vermin. The stuff
bad decayed years ago and was not fit for
even savages to eat The trouble is that
the food is bought by the agents in Wash
ington, and X don't believe they know how
bad it is. In the Eastern schools the super
intendents buy their supplies ana the
boarding is all that could be desired. Un
less it is remedied the Cheyennes and
Arrapahoes can be expected to go ou the.

Mr. Struchen added that the Germans are
opposed, to tbe Emperor's army bill, and

solve the Eeichstag,. but as often as he does
it an adverse house will be elected. The

why if you have time to read it.
Get-this pamphlet in our Men's De
partment. It will tell you at length
what we must tell in brief.

is cotton. The unspun wool fibres
are drawn through cotton meshes,
forming a soft non-irritable inner
surface totally different from any
other underwear.
because of the softness of the wool,
which is perfectly porous and car
ries the moisture quickly to tho
cotton outer surface, where it has
no influence upon the body what
ever. The body cannot be chilled
in passing from a warm to a cold
atmosphere if clothed in this un
derwear. This is the name of
this wonderful underwear, and,
remember, if anyone ejse in this
city tells you they can sell you
this underwear they simply don't
tell the truth.
For Men, Women and Children,
In Combination Suits and in Shirts
and Drawers, in Winter and in Sum

And besides all this if it wasn't good
we wouldn't indorse it ourselves.
After careful examination we are con
vinced that the Jaros Underwear
is the best Underwear made that
claims peculiar hjfgienic qualities.
And it combines Comfort and Sight
liness and Fineness of Finish to a
degree not found in any other so
called Sanitary Underwear.
And in spite of its unquestionable
superiority the Jaros Underwear ia
not extravagant in price.
It is of course comparatively new
to many persons in this city, but we
will make it known to everybody who
wears Underwear, and we are confi
dent of its being favorably received
wherever given a trial. We want
everybody to come and examine the
goods for themselves. Meantime
you can have pamphlets and cata
loeues for the askinsr, which will tell
