Tiie application for a charter is the out*
growth of a conference of Wheeling manuficturers
and business men and some
gentlemen from a distance, held in
this city on December 11 last, a fall report
of which, together with an outline
of the scheme,was printed exclusively in
the Intelligencer of the following
morning. This was the first intimation
the public had that a project so long
and no much discussed waa at last assuming
practical shape. Tho scheme
has in no scubb been changed since it
waa given In the Intklligencek at that
time. Tho object was then and is now
to get to the coke fields and ultimately i
(o make thie road an essential connect- <
imr link between the East and tho West, i
the Terminal system now Hearing com- i
pletion being an important part of the i
work. I
In addition to the direct connection i
with the Connellsville coke fields, it is i
pro pot ed to extend the road by another
branch to connect in the valley of the I
Cheat or Monongahela liver with one of <
the systems now being extended from J
tho West Virginia coke and coal regions i
toward Pittsburgh. Such a connection <
will at least put Wheeling on an even i
looting with Pittsburgh as to access to
the mineral, timber and agricultural
wealth of tho great interior of West Virginia?an
achievement which the most
thoughtful manufacturers of Wheeling
have long regarded as of vital importance
if Wheeling is to hold her own in 1
the march af progress, (
getting to tub coke. ]
The means of access to the West Vir- j
ginin coke regions is not definitely fixed, j
It may be that an independent line may t
prove most advantageous and direct, t
Tho plan is, however, to get there. De- t
tails remain to bo arranged. f
The line to Connellsville has, however, e
bcou' practically located, in a general a
way. Jt will take a southeasterly direc- 1
tion from me cuy, traversing i/tuu mm i
Marshall countics, enter .Washington c
county, Pa., and paes through Greene t
county and thence into Fayotte, to on- i
nelteville. I
The importance of a direct, short and i
independent railroad line to Connellsvillecau
be seen by every citizen of t
Wheeling at a glance. In addition to
the valuable advantages it will give
Wheeling and neighboring manufacturers
in cheaper coke, the road will also j
treverse a rich and virgin country. Tho i
southern portions of Washington and
Uroenu countics, I?a., are entirely de- 1
void of rail way connections with the out- 1
side world. A road from Wheeling *
through that section would draw to this '
city the rich trade of a ooction which
now reaches Pittsburgh with difficulty. '
It docs not require that such a project 1
be dwelt on to mako it apparent to any- (
body interested in Wheeling that this Is '
the thing she has long sought. 1
AN IMPORTANT LINK.
The moat progressive manufacturers
here have long viewed with uneasiness <
tho enterprise with which Pittsburgh has ,
reached out to monopolize tho coal and |
ore and stone and timber of the Moan- {
tain State. That city has long recognized ,
tho importance of direct and convenient i
access to the rich interior of West Virginia.
Wheeling, Buffering as she does
by tho tuperior facilities enjoyed by
Pittsburgh for reaching the mesent
iiotirce of the coke supply, has Heretofore
Htood idly by and witnessed the extension
of the means of communication
with her own State straight toward Pittsburgh.
Hut now she has aroused from
her lethargic sleep, and proposes instead
of waiting for the interior to comoin and
pour her rictus into tho laps of the
Wheeling people, to indulge in the reaching
out process herself.
The importance of the link for a through
line; the benefits to the city and to the
Terminal system in which it is bo greatly
interested; the increase in importance
of Wheeling as a railway point; the impetus
to the commerce with the section
traversed?si! these are concomitant advantage
which buggrst themselves to
every thoughtful mind,

morning's session of the Western States
Coogress was o|ijne 1 with prayer iiy
Bishop Hendricks. James I'eabody, of
Chicago, read a paper on railroad pools,
saying that pools were necessary to
maintain rates and keep them stable.
It was not so much a great business as
a flteadv bnftinetm the railrnflrfa ilnmand.
ed. Gen. Charles W. Blair, of Kansas,
read a paper on transportation ns affecting
commerce and finance. A letter was
read from CbarlcB 8. Smith, President,
calling attention to the improvements of
the Mississippi river, and the import*
ance of protecting the lands from an
overflow.
Judge VV. R. WiJney, of Los Angeles,
Cal., read a paper on tho National
money pystem. There should be a
limit to bink crcdits. State banks no
longer had power to issue money, but
they created money by tho issuance oi
of bank credits. Sinco they arrogated
to themselves the function of tho State
they should come' under State supervision.
Which should it be? he asked?a
basis of gold that is constantly narrowing
as years go by, and its production
diminishing, coupled with the ever expanding
system of bank credit currency,
subject to expansion and collapse as the
interests or cupidity of banks msy dictate,
or less credit and more actual primary
money in which confidence was
never wanting?
Upon re-assembling in the evening
iddresses were made upon ttie money
question by T. S. Coast, of Illinois, and
b*rof. Binckmar, of Kansas. The contention
then adjourned to the Commercial
Club, where a reception was tenlered
the delegates.

PREM1EB BI RDM

Deputies the Situation
OF THE ITALIAN GOVERNMENT

Are Applauded.
Ron*, April 16.?The Marquis di
Kadini in the Chamber of Deputies today
waa questioned in regard to Mr.
Blaise's answer to the last communication
the United States Secretary of State
bad received from the Italian Premier
on the subject of the New Orleans lynching.
The Marquis, during the course of
hlB reply to the interrogation, spid that
Italy could not admit tbe irresponsibility
of the United Stales in regard to tbe
acts ot the single States of tbo Union.
This was a question, be added, wbicb
interests every civilized Government aa
well as Italy.
In conclusion the Marquis said that be
did cot fear political diflioultiea between
Italy nod the united states, but it was
a matter of regret that so highly civil*
ized a country as the United 8t*tes
should not falfli the duties of justice and
morality.
In political circles some disappointment
is expressed with Mr. Blaine's re*
ply. It is characterized as vague and
iuconclusive, and as insisting merely on
the stultu quo.
The concluding remark of the Marquis
was greeted with an outbreak of general
applause.
In the course of his reply to the interpellations,
the Premier said that on
learning of the certainty that four of the
lynched men were Italians, the Italian
Government immediately directed the
attention of the United States Government
to the matter and received from
that Government satisfactory assurances,
which were afterwards personally
confirmed by Mr. Porter, the United
8tates Minister. The Premier then read
the telegram which President Harrison
sent to the Governor of Louisiana on
March 10, and added that the Italian
Government, like President Harrison,
demanded that the guilty parties be
brought to justice and that indemnity
bo granted to the families of the vie*
time.
As the action of the United States, con- (
tinned the Premier, had not correspond- ,
ed with its promises, tho Italian Gov- '
?rnment was constrained to demand a <
formal assurance that the guilty parties (
should ba denounced and that the title
to indemnity should bo admitted in
principle. The United States Government,
however, failed to give this aesur
ance, replying that the Constitution of ,
the United States did not permit the
Federal Government to interfere in .
State aflairs.
The Premier then proceeded to give a j
detailed account of the negotiations between
the Italian and American Govern- ,
mente, ending with the order to Baron j
Fava to tako his departure on leave of
absence, seeing that he had proved tho ,
inutility of diplomatic action. The .
Marquis Imperial! was instructed to j
state that the incident would not be j
closed until the Federal Government c
bad explicitly declared that legal pro- ,
caediugs asainat the lynchers would bo ,
promptly begun. Premier di Kudini
expreased himself as being confident of
tho ultimate settlement of the wholo i
matter in a manner favorable to tbe
rights of Italy and of thoBe of all civil- .
i/.ed Governments, all of whom were ,
one with Italy on the point at issue. If 1
it were proved to be impossible to obtain 1
a favorable solution of the problem, <
grave complications would not arise, i
hut he would deem it a matter of pto- <
found regret tbat tho people of the i
United States, so advanced in civilization
should show themselves far re- <
moved from tbe principles of right and c
justice universally proclaimed and scru- I
pulouely observed in Europe. f
These sentiments were loudly cheer- I
ed. At tbe conclusion of the address t
the intorpellatora expressed tbeir ap- <
proval of tha conduct of tho Italian t
government in tbe matter, and as being |
BituQed with the explanation made by i
Premier dl Rudini. Tbe Tribunu says
that .Secretary Blaine aims, above all,
to divert the attention of Italy from the
real question at issue. Bat this, it adds, 1
will not easily be done. The Opioru ap- |
piaudstho declaration of Premier di Kudini,
but siys the public onght to reserve
its judgment on tbe affair until
tbo text of Mr. Blaino's last note is |
known.
After the adjournment of the Cham- ,
ber an Associated Prets correspondent ,
culled upon the Marquis di Kudini and !
asked him if it was possible for him to ;
give an opinion for publication in regard
to the reply of the United States Secretary
of State, Mr. Blaine, to his (the
Marquis di Kudiui'n) last note on the
subject of the New Orleans lynching. In
reply the Ma:quis said in snbalance tbat
tbe cabled summaries of Mr. Blaine's
reply tbat bad been sent to Rome and
which be had seen in tho public press
of this city, were too brief and otherwise
Inadequate for hint to form a definite ,
opinion, much less, givj nn opinion for
publication If be felt justified in adopting
the latter course 01 action.
The Muiquis added that be preferred
not to say anything further while awaiting
the receipt of the full text of Mr.
Blaino'e reply, except that he was now
and bad always been, sincerely desirous
of a friendly solution of the difficulties at
present existing between tbe Italian
Government and the Government of tbe
United Siatts. Though tbe full correspondence
given out in Washington
yesterday was telegraphed to London by
Reutei's Telegram Company, and was
published in tbe English papers, only a
summary was telegraphed from London
to the Italian papera on account of tbeir
disinclination to pay the tolls from
London for tbe lull correspondence.
This explains tbe above remarks of the
Marquis ut Kuaiui.

Wasbinqtos, D. 0., April 1(1.?Secretary
Blaine's latter to tbe Marquis di
Kudini waa the principal Bubject of comment
to-day among tbe lew national
legialatora now in the city. Senator
Uanderion aald that the letter waa an
admirable document, vigorous and thoroughly
American. "1 am very glad,"
aaiil he, "that Ur. Blaine gave to the
pnblic Iuly'a demand. Never waa any
request more abturd."
Senator liawley said that the Secretary
bad taken a perfectly proper and honorable
poeition. "the wholo thing ia
not worth talking about," remarked
Senator Plumb. "Suppose the Italian
Minister ia recalled. Who carea? Hia
departure ia oi no more consequence to
tbe American people than II the

Ita juet one man leea to board, and
that's the onlunbject for thought there

Kvldcnce.
Tbe case of Sr. John R. Pipee and
Taylor Foreman, charged on the affidavit
of William Branatroup, with taking Irom
a grave in tbe Infirmary cemetery, on or
about tbe 18th day of January last, the
body of Henry Watobecker, came np lor
a preliminary hearing before Jnatice of
tbe Peace George Arkle laat night.
At 7:30 the office was filled with a
crowd of witneaaea aud spectators, and
it had to be cleared before the hearing
could begin. Capt. B. B. Dovener waa
on band to represent thedefeuae and
Prosecuting Attorney Howard conducted
the prosecution.
The first witness waa William Branatroup,
tbe engineer .at the Infirmary,
aud the man who made the affidavit
upon which the warrant wen issued. He
said: "I am employed aa engineer at
the Ohio county Infirmary; I woa there
in January last; I knew Watstecker; be
died on the seventeenth of January; lie
was buried in the cemetery of the Infirmary,
about a quarter of a mile from

Baw the body in tho coffin in the grave
at the time it was placed there alter
death; I am sure of the grave in which
the corpse waa placed; the grave was
opened on last Monday by Isaac Litten
and Joseph Campbell; I do not koow
when the body was removed from the
grave; Taylor Foreman waa superintendent
at the time the body waa ouried; I
know Dr. Pipes bv sfghtonly; he was
.here the day after Watabecker died; he
:ame oat on the four o'clock motor and
talked to the Infirmary; I saw him and
Foreman coming from the hospital to
iio house; Wakbecker waa buried after
['ipes went away; Pipes was there once
ifler that; I saw him talking to Forenan
; ho came out in a buggy with a
ady j it was about a month later; I was
tot at the graveyard the day the body
if Watabecker was buried: I saw it the
icxt evening; we wentoutand dug the
tody up and found it there; I have not
een the body since; the body was taken
o the graveyard in a wagon; a number
>f inmates of the institution were with
t.
Cross-questioned by Captain Dovener:
'Did you ever see any other physician
rom Wheeling out at the infirmary?"
'Yes, sir."
''Was it not common for physician*
nd others to come to the iufirmary and .
nake an inspection oi it?"
"Others came when they cared to. It
vna the fact that Watabecker died the 1
ame day that made it look strange for a <
[octor to come out there."
"Have there not beon some changes
n the political complexion o( the infirmry
management within the past few
Qonths?''
At this point Mr. Howard objected,
nd he and Captain Dovener argued as
o the sufficiency of the evidence the
Japtain wished to introduce. After a
ew minutes talk Mr. Howard withdrew
lis objection aud tho question was al
owed. Captain Dovener went on to
irovo that there bad been changed in
he politics of the infirmary managenent
several times within the past two
'ears and that tho managers and em>loyes
who are now making charges
igainst each other are of different poliice.
Upon a direct question from Captain
Dovencr as to who robbed the grave,
3ranstroup admitted that he did not
enow who had committed the robbery,
tnd that he bad no direct knowledge
hat the defendants had any connection,
vith it. Ho was positive, however, that
he body had been taken and that it was
lot in the coffin when the grave was
)pened last Monday.
Captain Dovener then read the warant
to Branstroap and asked him if he
iad sworn to the contents of it. Mr.
Sranstroup admitted that he had, but
laid that he did not know that the war*
-ant unqualifiedly asserted that Dr.
Pipes and Taylor Foreman had robbed
,he grave, lie aaid he supposed they
iad done it, and had sworn out the war'ant
on that ground. He said that
Dreigbton and Higgs had led him to
luppose that these men had done the
obbery. Thoro was then considerable
juestioning as to the relations of initnacy
between Branstroup and a Mrs.
Douglas, at one time a uurae in the Inirmary,
but it brought out nothing of
ntoreet to the case.
Branstroup said that ho first suspected
ihat the body was not in the grave the
aight it was buried because the grave
*as not filled up that night He and an
nmate of the Infirmary went down to
the graveyard the next night and opened
:be grave to see if the body was there,
lud they found it all right. This, he
laid, allayed his suspicions and he had
ao further reason to suspect that the
<rave had been robbed till it was opened
:his week and the body was found
missing.
Branstroup gave some further evijcnce
as to circumstances and things
about the Infirmary, bat nothing that
bad any direct bearing upon the case.
Thomas Higgs was next called. He
laid that he knew Or. Pipes and Taylor
foreman, but did not know Watabecker.
Mr. Howard aekeil u lie nan ever oau
any conversation with Mr. Foreman
boat opening a grave and taking a body
Iroin the cemetery. Mr. Hlggs replied
that be had not. Mr. Howard then
ihanged the* form of hia qucation and
uked: "Did yon ever have any conversation
with Taylor Foreman that would
indicate to yon that he wanted you to
jpen a grave?" Captain Dovcner objected,
and Mr. Howard then changed
tbe form ol the question again.
"Mr. Foreman and Dr. Pipes are
charged with having tak*n a body from
the grave yard at the Iofirmary. Do
von know anything about it?"
"I do not."
He then laid: "I bad a conversation
with Taylor Foreman about tbe time
Walabecker is aaid to have died. I met
blm near the Elm Grove station and he
uked me if I wanted to earn $2, I asked
what I was to do. At that point we were
interrupted and no more was said. He
went one way and I went tbe other. I
do not remembor what it was that interrupted
us, but I think some one called
to me and I tamed, and be went one
way aod I the other. When he asked me
if I wanted to earn $2, I think I replied
that it depended upon what was to be
done. Before this charge was made
against Foreman I said nothing about
that conversation to any one. I did not
think anything of It at that time. W.T.
Chambers, of Elm Grove, a witness for
the defense, was called out of tarn and
detailed a conversation be bad had the
morning before with Branstronp, in
which Branstronp aald he had not ased
the language attributed to him in tbe
affidavit, and that he was coming to town
to eee Justice Arkle aboqt it.
James Crelghton was next sworn, and
wu taken in hand by Mr. Howard. "I
am employed at the Infirmary; I know
Dr. Pipes; I saw him at the Infirmary
once; I remember the time of Watsbecker'a
death; Pipea waa there that day; I
aawhim and Foreman talking io the hall
ol the hospital, bat I did not eee him
come or go. Watabecker waa baried between
4 and 5 p. m.; I helped to pnt bim
in hia grave; John Hamilton and Mr.
Foreman helped; I threw In aoine dirt;
I never aaw the grave again until tut ,
Monday, when it waa opened and no '
body was lonnd in it."
When aaked it he bad ever had any (
conversation with Mr. Foreman, he aald:
"I believe there waa aome conversation
between us that night. It waa about
opening a grave. We were in the atable
and Foreman aaked me if I wanted to
earn $3. I aaked what I was to do. He
said he waa to get 15 for the body, and
that he would give me $2 if I would help .
to get it out. He did not ear who waa '
to pay the $5. Thia talk took place the (
night we buried Watabecker. but he did o
not say whloh body he referred to. I f(
understood him to mean Watsbeckei'a .
body. I told him I wonld have nothing "
to do with the Job. He did not aay n
when the work waa to be done, but I t
supposed it waa to be done that night" ti
Captain Dovener worked with the h
witness for quite awhile trying to break
down his testimony on important points, ti
and made him contradict hlmaelf several a
times as to the time and place the con- o
venation between bim and the foreman o
took place. At one time he said the tl
talk had occurred about S o'clock and *
at another that it was alter the funeral T
and that the funeral waa Interrupted by si
the ringing of the 7 o'clock bell. The
witness denied that he had contradicted a
himself bnt Captain Dovener sprung the ta
stenographer on bim to prove it F
I William Kemp was called and sworn, ti
The only evidence of importance that al
he gave was in elfrct that ho had seen w
Dr. Pipes at the Infirmary, and that the fa
day alter Watabecker died Foreman had Hi
said to bim that he (Kemp) need notbo tt
in a hurry preparing the body forbnrial, bi
as Dr. Pipes waa to come out after it the J<
nextday. He waa off on his dates, how- e\
ever, and located the burial on Sunday, lo
positively, tie also had the body held to
in the horpital a day longer than any of pi
the others testified to. b<
John Ualpin and Isaac Litton were tfa
sworn, bat did not givo any testimony th
of importance. It was then 11 o'clock,
and the attorneys decided to continue ar
the hearing at 7:30 this evening. m

Of tlie Pit Arrested.
Several days ago it waa announced in
be Ixtxlugxxciii that the Circlevllle,
)hio, aporta who lost so much money
n the last fight at Fulton were snxious
jr another turn with the Wheeling
ilrdaantl were negotiating for another
lain. A few days ago it ?u learned
hat the fight waa to take place in Marin'a
Ferry, although Ohio baa very strict
iws against that sport.
Yesterday the sports began to arrive
i this city and were soon collected
bout the various resorts. At several
1 the leading spotting saloons the out
[ town arrivals were so numerous that
ley hsd to take quarters on the slde alk,
the bar-rooms being overcrowded,
he town seomed to be slive with
rangers with short balr and ping hats.
In the evening they began to thin oat
little, and several squads were seen
.king North Wheeling cars for Martin's
erry. Many more went over in hacks,
id the McLure House hack stand waa
most depleted. Martin's Ferry was
orse crowded than Wheeling hsd been,
ir thoro were fewer ulaces tor the cock
;bers to go snd there wore more of
iuin Tim ntt vob Inoulml in a aalnnn
lildiug on Second street, owneil by
>bn Kyne, and was the finest tbat ban
r?r been built in tbla bection. It w.ui
cated in the second story in a Urgo
ora, lighted with electric lights. The
t was surrounded on three aides with
'nches, and waa arranged no tbat tha
iroe hundred apectatora could see all
iat went on in the whole room.
The Oircleville birds were a little latu
riving and moat ol them got in at 9 p.
. on the G. & P. road. There woro
ventoen fights arranged (or and that
any cocks were in the building Iroui
ircleville and the earns number from
'heeling and the immediate vicinity.
Here was considerable coaching from
ie time the sporta began to arrive till
ie first fight was called at 11:40. That
lere was lots of money to be won and
st was evident from the number of fat
lis that were displayed about the
loous. The Ohio bloods had conio
ith the determination of winning back
e money thuy had lost on the last
niton tight and they had the staff to
ik in the eilori.
The first fight called at 11:40, was be
;een a fine rod brown cock from OirJ
evilie and a beauty of the same com
exion from Wheeling. Wheoling's
rd waa the favorite before they were
tted, and the betting was lively, odds
$15 to $5 being offered on the Wheelg
cock. Beta ranged in amount from
ire to one hundred dollars, and were
ken on both sides us fast as offered,
he fight lasted just three minutes. The
ircleville chicken brought first blood,
ahbingtbo Wheeling bird in the neck
i the third pitting. This changed the
itting, and from tbat to the end of the
jht the betting waatheother way. On
ie fifth pitting the Oircleville bird struck
ia antagonist a sounder in the body,
laching the heart, and in an instant the
loster fell dead and the money waa
irned over to the Ohio aporte.
The second fight waa called at exactly
1:03 a. m. Wheeling waa represented
1 a fine bird, and there was no doubt
i the minds of the local sports that the
jnor tbat had been loat in the flret
lit would be retrieved in the
cond. Oircleville was also well
latnpioned by a largo, finely formed
rd Willi almost whits plumage
ccept for a little grey that showed on
ia thighs, nock and tail. The betting
as forced bv the Wheeling aporlB again
id odds of $100 to $10 wcro made. The
rda fought for blood from the fltart
m both hold out for eighteen minutes
aring which time they were pitted
ivonteen timea. On the aeventoentU
ittlng the Wheeling bird ?n knocked
i its back and failed to respond on
me and the fight was given to Circlelie.
The Wheeling chicken gave up
te ghoat in a few minutes after the
ittle was declsred against it
This fight was one of the finest from
te cock fanciers' point of view that was
rei fought in a local pit. Both birds
ere gamo and lasted long enough to
low that both bad been well walked
ad were well handled.
The third fight was nailed at 12:451.
i. Both birds were fine looking fellows,
ut the eports bad lost nearly all their
atriotiam and wore betting to win.
Wheeling's contingent had lost so much
u the firat two fights that tliey had to
edge to save themselves. Bets were
lade at $10 to 60 cents, but not many
1 them. Must of the money was put
p at about $25 to $5. Oircieville won
also, aud Wheeling aeomed about to
isaolve.
The fourth fight was abort and decisive,
ad waa over in threo minutes. Wheelig
took it with a grey bird. The fifth,
xth and seventh fights went the same
ay and Wheeling spirits came up with
ruab.
Juat after Ihia fight Marshal Samuel
ITestwocd massed tho police force for a
ull of the pit. The ofllcers wcro doled
admittance, however, and the
fayor and Justice of the I'eace being
ut of town tbev could get no warrants,
hoy arreatod John Kyne, the proprieir
of the house, and made him put up
100 for his appearance to-day.
Kyne was released and went back and
icked the doors aud the lighting proueded
and was uoimr fasL Mntl fnrimiB
