Creerjr'e Yertloa of the Affair*
K -
Joseph Gainnlnl, the contractor, of
? Pittsburgh, to whom the construction of
the Pittsburgh. Monongshefa & Whaling
railroad was awarded some months
. ago. came out Saturday In a statement
In which he charged that the officer* of
the company, or the 'promoters." as he
? called them, did not have a cent In any
financial Institution that they could use
for building the road, and that ten ptr
5 cent of the capital stock had not been
\ paid up aa required by law. The latter
I waa one of the reasons, he said, that he
'J had not begun the construction of the
road. The burden of Mr. aianninl'ti
aomplalnt waa that he had not been
'fairly treated by the railroad company,
which has notified him that the contract
has been cancelled.
James H. McCreery. the general counsel
of the railroad company, decided to .
answer Mr. Glannlnl's statement, and
produced the construction contracts en- .
tered Into by Giannlnl and the com;
pany. which was printed In yesterday's
| Pittsburgh Post, an follows:
The company agrees to pay to the con- .
?tractor 12.000.000 In first mortgage 5 per
cent gold bonds, the entire Issue, and
_ $1,788,800 worth of full paid. non-asaesss'>
able capital stock.' The commencement
of the work is to be no later than March
,-Vr 15. After the work of construction hns
m been commenced the certificates of stock
iy shall be delivered to the contractor on or
, about the 8th day of each month, on estimates
of work done and msterlal furnished.
In proportion to the whole
amount of the consideration. Time In
V the completion of the contract Iff the essenoe
of the agreement, but the contrac.
tor Is promised the ususl extension to
make up for time lost through clrcum
stanoes beyond his control."
t With reference to the Giannlnl statef
raent. Mr. McCreery said:
, "My associates would scarcely justify
t any publications regarding this question.
but I feel that the truth should be
tfcld. Prior to Decernb?r 12. 1895. Mr.
Giannlnl was one of four contractors
??:' who submitted propositions for the cont
structlon of the Pittsburgh. Monongafv
hela & Wheeling railroad. Mr. Glan?:*
nlnl was not known to my associates in
t'. this matter, but my de*|r?? to have the
p work come to Pittsburgh led me to
g- throw whatever Influence I had In favor
E; of Giannlnl. As a result of negotiations
jjc with Mr. Giannlnl on December 12. 1895.
the company entered Into a contract ,
with him for the construction of th*
first division of the railroad. Before
| aiming (he contract Mr. Glanntnl
brought the contract to Pittsburgh. subr
mltted It to his associate. Mr. F. N.
HolTtot. and returned to New York with J
" Mr. Hofftot on December 19. at which
y time we gave Mr. Hofftot and Mr. Olan- !
i f nlnl possession of our minute hooks and
, charter. A full examination was made
K of them. They subsequently stated that
? everything was satisfactory, and the
:j contracts were signed. The railroad or- j
yi ganlxatlon was examined by the legal ,
; Arm of Bullitt * Dickson, of Philadelphia.
and pronounced perfect. Under
the terms of Mr. Glannlni'* contract
Si work was to be commenced not lat*r |
Eu* tnan March 15. 1S94. Mr. Giann:nl was
5: advised that a contract for the sale of a 1
large tract of coal land had b**n mad*,
to become operative wh*n the work was
k; commenced on the rallro.id. and we ?ti>
promised from time to time that work
would be begun on or before that date,
g March 11. 1*M. Mr. Glannlni having 1
SH mode no preparation* for the commeno*roent
of work, one of the director* of the
^ company. Mr. Bmadbent. of Phllndel ,
E? phla. cam* to Pittsburgh and inquired
jte. of Mr. Glannlni If work would lx? com- 1
U- rnenced. The reply was No."
& "The company. In view of his refusal. 1
L haa notified the contractor that his contract
was cancelled snd will proceed to
i- construct the road through oth-r con- 1
tractors. Tf Mr. Glannlni has any rem??,
edy. I am sure the"rourt* will g|vi? It to

? he haa none.

THE WOMAN QUESTION
Will Come Up llefmr llin Slrtlincllat Ctrl'*
rnl ('oufrrciue To-dny?A 111# t'oi?tr?t
Kvprrtrd.
CLEVELAND. O.. May 3.?There wu
but one session of the Methodlut general
conference to-day. That wan held In
the afternoon at tb? nr;nory. Bishop
Fowler, of Minneapolis, prenlded. read
the scripture and preached the sermon,
pray it being offered by Rev. Dr. P. 8.
L'pham, of Drew Theological Seminary.
Bishop Fowler's sermon wan a powerful
arraignment of the higher critics of the
Bible, the speaker allowing by biblical
and scientific arguments that the moos
of the criticisms pawed upon the scrip*
ture* were without foundation. The
address was listened to with marked attention
by a larir?? audience. A large
number of the ministerial delegate* to
the conforencc supplied pulpits In CloveIn
ml and surrounding towns thlj morning
and evening.
The delegates are expectantly awaiting
the contest over th<' woman question
which Is to come the first thing to-morrow
morning In the conference. It Is
understood that the majority and minority
reports of the committee on ellgi- I
blllty will be submitted at 10 o'clock.
The minority report, which will be sign- j
ed by twenty member* of the commit- ,
tee, will probably be submitted by Rev.
Dr. A. G. Kynett, of Philadelphia. It
will hold that the woman delegates are
eligible to seats In the conference.
The minority report. It Is understood,
will be submitted by Dr. J. M. Buckley,
editor of the New York Christian Advooate,
and will consist of arguments
based on biblical and constitutional
I grounds ugalnnt the granting of. the
pi I vllege of delegates to the women. The
j concensus of opinion among the deleft,
a is that the majority report will be
adopt-d. If It Is. the conference will
say, It Is asserted, that the constitution
ought to be changed and n precedent
will be established which will result In
giving s?*ats to women in all future conferences.
While It Is admitted that the
women will win n victory, wnslderabje
apprehension Is felt rejMrdluK the probfionnun
/Inlniralou til
tho event of Huch action, it in well
known that the German* are almost
solidly opposed to Riving women so.its
and a voice In the conference proceedings,
their opposition being based upon
the declaration of Saint Paul against
womcn'q participation In tho aifalrs of
the church, and some doubt Is expressed
aa to whether they will submit to the action
of the conference without nprotest.
It can bo atatcd on excellent authority
that the report of the committee on prohibition
will declare In favor of combining
to fight the liquor traffic In any
way upon which all friends of temperance
?an agree, regardless of creed or
politics. Tho report will also Indrose
tho work of the American anti-saloon
league. ^
