enough to be bunched with lioscoo Conk'

If the Legislature intended to bring itt

Mu. Mason's Wall street scheme slumburs,
and while it slumbers snores a sad
farewell to all its greatness. It may revive
"when the robins nest again," tootoo-tee-too.
If there are any more gentlemen who
would accept something of more or less
value from President Cleveland, now is
the time to put themselves conspiciously
on iJJe. Tho entries are about to close.
"Tavmw County" writes to say that if
tho Intelligencer doesn't "let upon the
McCormick business" he'll not buy another
copy of the paper. Probably not.
For sheer spite he'll join the ignoble army
of newspaper borrowers.
Sk.vatoii Mouhik gives tho Sunate a
chance to say whether it thinks tho Randolph
county vote "a matter of no consequence,"
or whether it is wilifng to have
tho truth developed. A joint committee
might be better, but the main thing is to
probe this little pleasantry to the bottom.
Oovek.nou-ki.kct Wilson is willing to
make an even divide of Cleveland's pat*ronage
with the Unite,<l .Suites .Senatorshalf
to the Governor and the other half to
K.imi'lmwthe halvesilon't
seem to bo equal. If the Senators get
badly scared they will be glad to enter
into this truffle arrangement.
In his message tho Governor lets the
Tax Commission fall with a "dull thud."
lie demotes very few lines to it and seeing,
as it were, to stub his gubernatorial toe
against the prostrate form of the same.
"If it was so soon to be done for what was
It begun for?" The Governor has hardened
his heart and stiffened his pen.
3111. Causk adojj's letter on tho Me Collcctorship
goes to tho point without circumlocution,
after tho writer's habit oi
expressing himself. Mr. Cnrskadou bears
willing testimony to the value of a good
daily paper. "No family is complete without
one." The Dally Intkm.igknckk i-sent
by mail for eight dollars a year, postage
paid. You get your Weekly Intri.mCENCKa
for one dollar, which won't buy so
much of anything else.

? I
PiTTSiiuitaii, Jiin, 10.?Tho suspension j
of payments of the extensive iron inanu- ,
( factoring firm of Oliver Brothers & Phil- I
, lips, as announced last evening, naturally 1
created the liveliest commotion in business <
circles, not only in tho city but through- i
i out tho country. The facts, so far as they '
had transpired, were then given, and since j
then nothing essential in the way of reli- j
able detail has been published, though ;
considerable gossip and conjectures as to 1
the causes of tho tribulations of the lirm '
have been sent out for public consamp- |
tion. Of course this is excusable, for the J
reason that in a business so immense it t
would bo impossible oven for the members
of the lirm themselves to give concise par- J
ticulars so soon following the suspension. 1
Within two years, in speaking of tho necessity
for the .1 unction railroad and the f
marginal attachments thereto, Mr. llarrv
\V. Oliver, Jr., stated that when all tho j;
mills of his lirm were in operation they
required one thousand tons a day of rail
road service. This will give some idea of Jj
tho extent and capacity of the several J
plants which comprise the establishment.
J relative to tho exact figures of the assets
:ind liabilities, it will be impossible to give *
. these until tho firm is ready to report. J
VII tigures heretofore given are estimates,
which may bo near or far from the mark, j'
However it is known from the records *'
that tho mills art! more or less encumbered
with mortgages. All such form of in- ?.
debtedness contracted previous to Novum- *
?c?'? umiu u.'h.ultilr.il liv the (_'ti/.ad
Agency and aggregated $500,000. of which f'
"iie-half was to W\ J. Lewi* for balance on l'
the purchase of his interest. Since that ?.
date another half million hua been added ,!
tn the mortgages. Of the whole amount. !;
some $1100,000 11us been satisfied. An in- u
bailment mortgage for $200,IKK) to the e
i 'Mlliir Savings Hank, which came through
\V. J. Lewis, and which is dischargeable
upon pay muntof $1.20,000, remains unsatis- *
ged. Another and recent mortgage for '
$IS,000.is held by Mr. he wis. The known 1:1
indebtedness of th.s character foots up
over $S0D,(MX). A hirpo mortgage, whicli
is unrecorded, and which was made to se- j{
cure discounts at city banks, is said to be
>'I,-100,000. Tills lattc:r is reported as be- 81
ing very "tight" in its provisions. It won Id tl
appear from this that the mills are pretty li
thoroughly covered, iftid that there is no j
other course tor the creditors than to consents
an extension.
MUUUANTJI.B AUF.NCV KSTIMATKS, ll
The mercantile agency of Ii. ti. Dun & 0
Co. ou March 2d. 1S83, reported the firm v
"amply good for their requirements," "a ^
very strong concern," composed of 11. W. ''
Oliver, Jr., P. It. and J. ii. Oliver, John j'
Phillips and .fames Smith. They own a a
large amount of real estate and other n
properties, control large resources and aru o
making money rapidly. Harry W.Oliver, Ij
>f this /inn. made something like $1100,000 n
, recently by the sale of his stock held in ti
the Pittsburgh it Like Krio railroad here, y
He is a close financier, full of energy and il
business tact, undcrstuuds his business
i thoroughly, and with the money recently |j
made by hint, as stated anove, ne ims ri.- u
dueed the indebtedness of the liriu," They b
do a very extended business and are ot i\
' course somewhat indebted, but have been b
very prosperous ever since the start some b
years ago. They are not very large bur- &
rowers and have ample backing if re- o
. quired. They arc estimated to be worth b
in the neighborhood of $1,000,000, though o
we understand they claim to be worth m ii
excess of that amount. When Mr. Jajwi's, t(
a former partner, retired, something over T
two years ii?o, the lirm settled on a basis u
of $f,000,000. paying Lewis part cash and n
the balance in installments, which are not
all paid yet. TJio firm have the reputii- tl
lion of meeting everything promptly at I
maturity. tl
On October 20, 1884, the agency rated
tho firm at from $750,000 to $1,000,000. s;
This firm "stands among the largest tirms d
in its line. The members are also inter- tl
fftted in other outside enterprises and
altogether have large resources. They e
Own valuable property, patterns, etc. The p
property, however, Ls somewhat enetim- v
I l>ered,but in the bulk only for the balance t!
for purchase money mojtguges. All are n
j enterprising'business men aud have good ji
backing. Their business, like alj others, jj
' has suffered considerably owing to dull n
. trade, and it is reported that they have y
been compelled to borrow moro or less d
, from banks in order to keep their business v
' moving along smoothly. Their assets, t
hovvover, are large and they are^elievetl t

try east and west also hold the paper,
eastern financial institutions having large
blocks. Pittsburgh banks have decreased
their holdings lurgely within the year, .
much of the paner being paid voluntarily
by the lirm. In nno, }7nnlr t)?? firm_jeiuced
its paper $100,000 within the year. <
Considering the extent of the firm but a
comparatively small amount of the weight
falls upon Pittsburgh shoulders. The firm
lias very little accommodation paper out in
this city. It luis not need that Kind of paper
hero, and indeed, Bince 1S73 the bauks .
have not taken many of that kind
if notes. The mortgages which have 1
!>een made by the firm have been for J
itrictly businesn purposes. That held by \
the Dollar Savings Bank for $200,000, and ,
>/ which $SO,OOI) has been naid, was given
ivhen Mr. Lewis retired from the firm. 1
Hie statement that he retired with mil- !
ions is absurd. Ho was paid $325,000 for >
'lis interest,$100,000 of which was given
lim in cash and tluyest in mortgages. t
The various enterprises iu which Mr. H.
W. Oliver was engaged, outside of the ?
msiness of the firm, were managed with *
are ability,and were extremely successful. "
In this connection the Pittsburgh it lake ,
!Srie sale naturally suggests itself. In this ;
he profits to Mr." Oliver personally were
tbout $500,000. The books of Oliver
fros. it Phillip.? show the firm is indebted
o Air. II. W. Oliver to the extent of over
1,000,000, which he advanced from the l'
>rotits of his personal enterprises. J
It is stated oflicially that several of the ,,
orporations owned more or less by the (
lrm, but doing a separate class of busi
tess, will not ask for an extension, as

no doubt, includes H. IJ. Scutt <k g

One of the contributory causes of the
uspension was <loul?tless the heavy Joss <r
lade by the linn on a contract for pipe
hich they ior<1u with a ininin# company
i California. This pipe was made, ship*
ed to California, and all condemned.
The unsecured debts of the lirm com- '
o.se, it is saiil, about one-half its liabili- .
os. This is largely owing to furnace and
re companies. Although the lirm wis ,
le largest owner of stock in tho Isabella ,.
urnace Company and received its share A
f the output of pijj, it uses much more 1
tail it could obtain from that souree.
urnaccs in the Coniiellsville region will
gure us creditors of the lirm to a considrablo
extent.. As the secured creditors
re largely interested in local hanks, and ei
ic hanks" generally are willing to agree to fa
n extension, there is no doubt of the ohtilting
of the assent of the unsecured |
red i tors. '

.Mr. Frank Howard, of Bradford, has
probably been the most active in securing

a familiar tlguro about Washington for
more than half a year. lie came liere as

to take great interest jp tllP operations,
and idled about it looking carelessly on.
But Mr. Howard was really an expert
from the oil regions, and tho number of
leases recorded to him show how successfully
his ruse worked.
The vetPran fisherman and the campaign
liar alike aro out done by the authors of
