number o? Wheeling people In having
a large sum, suld to be $35,000,wiped out
through the failure of Broker Erastus
E. Ford, of New York, and the probability
that the money would be lost,
was read with the greatest Interest by
Wheeling people, and those who had
declined to become impressed by the
broker's- smooth talk last spring and
consequently did not invest in this twoper-efcnt-per-month
scheme were not
slow in congratulating themselves upon
a. lucky ..escape.
A gentleman who invested a considerable
sum with Ford two or three years
ago, when his spcculatlon-by-machinery
Idea was first sprung, in the course of a
talk with the Intelligencer last evening
No Intention to Defraud.
"I do not believe that Ford at any
time Intended to defraud us. I base
this impression upon the fact that after
the death of his brother and when
bis business became involved, he sent
back to a Wheeling man a check for
$1,000 that had been forwarded for investment
In stocks. Had he intended
to do us up he would have retained that
"The amount lost by Wheeling people
?If it is lost?is not, I believe, as large
as the Intelligencer stated by several
thousand dollars. There were not more
than eight or ten from Wheeling in the
syndicate, and although I do not know
ivhat each Invested, I believe the
imount will not reach $35,000.
Capt. Devoro Investigated.
"Captain D. B. Devord, of the regular
trmy, who was for several years prolessor
of mathematics at "West Foint
Vlllitary Academy, was.among the first
,o Investigate Ford's machine, and he
Irmly believed in it, and gave Ford a
etter of endorsement which the latter
iscd In London, where he took the rna:hine
and where it received a favorable
eception. The captain also invested
some money in stocks through Ford,
md the latter by reason of the captain's
indorsement paid him three per cent a
nonth on his investment for a long
;ime. Both Captain Devore and several
lere in Wheeling who invested at the
jtart have received in profits more than
vas originally invested. Here in Shoeing
we all received two per cent a

vhen Ford's brother died and it devel>ped
that he had-been speculating unsuccessfully
on the side with the firm's
The Machine Tested.
"The machine was on'exhibltion in tlie
Stevens' Institute of Technology in
New York for some time, and received
the endorsement of the school authorities.
It was given a three months' tent
it the school, running ten stocks, and
)f these it paid 250 per cent on nine
stocks, and lost but twelve per cent on
"Ford's father-in-law is a New York
millionaire named Bogard, I believe,
and wo vxjhct ultimately to ?frcure the
return of the principal we invested. He
and his father-in-law, however, have
not been on good terms for s*>n\* years.
Mr. Bogard, as I understand It, hrul no
faith in Ford's invention, and objected
to him using up so much time ou the
perfecting of the machine while In his
Funeral of Levi Backer.
The last sad rites over the remains of

llterateurs, and the music Is exquls'iely
in keeping. It 13 a song cycle for soprano;
contralto, tenor and bnss, which
I will be preceded by an Interesting miscellaneous
concert programme, which Is
appended In full. All the performers
' stand Jn the first rank of concert singers
of Pittsburgh and have given the
greatest pleasure by their artistic solo
and ensemble work wherever heard.
The company has been on the road all
season and the most flattering testimonials
have antedated their arrival In
this city. Tickets are on sale and season
tickets are exchanged, this morning
at Baumer's music, rooms, and a
large audience Is the outlook. The performers

Everything promises well for tha &
grand concert, by the Pittsburgh or- p
chestra, Victor Herbert, conductor, at c,
the Opera House, on Tuesday evening,
the 18th. The guarantors were fortunate
In being able to secure their s-^ats n
yesterday, and this morning the general ^
sale begins at !> o'clock at Baumer's g
music store. Of the artistic exccllence t(
of the programme there can bo no doubt
and It Is generally expected that
Wheeling music lovers will do thim- ei
selves proud on this occasion and give y
Victor Herbert and his great organ-za- tl
tlon a rousing welcome. tl
The wedding of Miss Laura Frew and ^
Mr. Charles Edward .Tones will be cele- ^
brated at the home of Mrs. Ann ElTza- ^

ence of a large assembly of friends A
reception will follow later.
The conccrt given by fho "Woman's ^
Musical Club last evening, In the A. O. ^
U. "W. temple was attended by an en- u
thusiastic and large audience. The p
performers were from the best talent ^
of the organisation and acquitted them- a
selves with distinction. The piano work
throughout was splendidly done. Miss *Gertrude
McConnaughey and Mis3 c
Edith M. Maskery, won the immediate
recognition of the audience, as worthy
of the trust imposed in allotting them
the place as soloists. Their playing was 0
line both In touch and interpretation. a
The chief accompany %vorlc was done 0
by Miss Emily Ray Pollock, whose rep- 0
utation as a pianist in this city is established,
and her playing: Inst evening P
was noteworthy. The duet sung by P
Mrs. Frederic F. Faris and Miss Flora 1
PhfoJ, and delightfully supported by r
Mias Pollock and TMiss Emma Roy- n
mann, was one of the features of the E
evening, being beautifully rendered In ^
both parts. The voices were never heard 1
to better advantage. Other ensemoie P
work were three choral numbers, with n
Mrs. F. Harry Travis and Mrs. Herbert ti
M. Riheldaffer, taking solo parts, and a
a quartet by Misses Alice Egerter, Fan- t!
nie Petrie, Martha Ott and Elizabeth J'
McLain. All were difficult selections P
and creditably given. The vocal sMo- b
ists were Mrs. Herbert M. Rlheldaffer, o
who, in singing the Jowel Song from o
"Faust," showed the purity and beauty s
of her voice to perfection. Miss Marga- h
ret Harvey was heard In two beautiful
songs admirably adapted to show the
unusual depth and grandeur of her
voice. The concert was up to the stand- t
ard of the club, and thoroughly appreciated
throughout. The rext re?ital I
occurs in January. c
Do not fall to get tickets for Saturday
night's performance at the Opera j
House. "A Night of Mystery" in all a
the name Implies, will be given for the *
benefit of the City hospital and a rush j
for seats Is assured. J

Council meets this evening In regular i

>o transacted. *
Tho council committee, on fire departnent
met last night at the city bulldng,
Chairman Baird presiding, and
LUdited bills aggregating $1,132 12.
It is specifically provided that the L
lection of fire chief shall occur at the
neetlng of council on the fourth Tueslay
of the month of December?as the
ourth Tuesday of December this year
alls on the 25th, Fire Chief R. D. Cllne
(/111 rcelve a very substantial and aceptablo
Christmas present. Mr. Cllne,
vho has made a fine record in this poslion,
has no opposition for re-election.
The council committee on claims was
o have met last nlglit, but in the abence
of a quorum, the meeting was _
ostponed until to-night Just before *~
ouncil assembles.
C. D. Kyle, the Second ward feed store rs
lan, has donated several tine cuspa- g
ores to the boya at the Vigilant en- ?
Ine house, for which they desire to ex- S
?nd a "vote of thanks. ?
"Old Bill," the fire department's ret- t
ran horse, which has seen eighteen
ears continuous service, and is now at
le Eighth ward engine house, is on
le siclc list, and It is feared that he
'III not recover. "Old Bill" Is about
wenty-four years old and has "seen
etter days." Yesterday it was reportd
that he would not eat or drink, but j
'eterinary Reefer hopes to pull the
old faithful" through.
It was reported to the fire committee
tst night that the appropriation for
tie year will not be entirely exhausted
nless thcr should arise unforeseen ex- E
endltures before the end of the month. j[
'his is an indication of the economical
nd careful administration of the afiiirs
of the department by Chief Cllne,
Jhairraao Baird, Clerk Nolte and the
"A Night of Mystery." ~
On Saturday night Mr. H. W. Rogers, B
C this city, will give an entertainment
t the Opera House which will consist
f revelations concerning the supposed,
ccultlsm of performers who go about
ho country Imposing on credulous peo<lc,
by claiming the aid of spirits In
resenting features of a mystical naure.
It is these deceptions that Mr.
togers will expose imd render the most
lyamyuiK tricKs as plain as daylight.
Ie has nothing to do with offending the
elievcr in spiritualism, but shows up
he fakir who claime to have esoteric
ower to work his wonders, and who
lasquerades before the public under
lie cloak of this belief. The perform- i
nee given by Mr. Rogers will bo for Jr
he benefit of the City Hospital, an obict
that commends Itself highly to the
atronage of the public. Tickets have
een rlaced at fifty cents to all parts
f the house, and are now in the hands
f the board of managers, and a ticket
ale at the box olllce will be opened
In Clerk Robertson's Ofilco.
