So the City of Pittsburg Will Proceed to Compel Them. Pittsburg-. Pa„ Oct. 22.—The First Na tional bonk has refused to pay the city the interest alleged to have been illegally collected from that institution by W. H. Mouse, ex-assistant city attorney. The lAllegheny Natidhal and the Tradesman National banks have not yet given their answer on this matter. It is generally anticipated, however, that their replies twill be similar to that given by the First National bank. City Attorney Burleigh Is now prepar ing to enter suits against the above aiamed banks. The method of procedure (will be to declare that a conspiracy ex isted between the banks and City Attor ney Moreland, aided by House, to de Sfraud the city of Pittsburg out of the use and possession of its money-on deposit in the different banks in the name of W. ,C. Moreland, on which interest was paid in sums ranging from 2 to 3 per oenit per annum. The suit will endeavor to show that by reason of its being deprived of the use of this money the city was com pelled to pay interest on deferred pay ments to contractors for improvements at the rate of 6 per cent. For these and other reasons the city will seek to recov er at least twice the amount of interest paid to W. H. House by the banks in [Question. Further and still greater sensational (developments in connection with the in vestigation of the olty attorney’s office are anticipated at an early day. We will make a special dis play of diamonds and watches for today only. H. C. Abbott & Bros., 121 Twentieth street. * NORTHWESTERN HOMESEEKERS.

OF FLESH OR ALABASTER The Records Show That It Was Made by a Fire Worshipping-Tribe That Once In habited This Country. “1 have two curiosities to show you,” said Agent Agr>e of the Southern Express company yesterday afternoon to a State Herald reporter. "However,” continued Mr. Agee, "I don't carry them on my per son, and! if you want to see them you will have to accompany me to my office.” Two of Mr. Agee's friends joined that gentleman and the reporter on the way to his office. "Here,'' said Mr. Agee, to his visitors, as he took from a secure depository a carefully wrapped package. "Here is a curio that is claimed to „be second to none in America.” As he spoke the cov erings were removed disclosing an or namental antique vase. "Venetian marble with Corinthian carving," exclaimed the reporter. "As to the material there is a diversity of opinion," said Mr. Agee, with a smile, "though you are right beyond a doubt as to the carvings, which are unmistaka bly Corinthian.” "Where did this come from and what is its age?” the reporter asked. "Listen and I will tell you the stpry of the antique so far as I know it," replied Mr. Agee. "It is claimed that the vessel now be fore you was in existence before the I’tolomy's, and that Ten Thousand Years would not cover its age. It came into tny possession through my friend. Col. Wil liam Townes, of Mecklenburg county, Virginia, who has intrusted it with me for the purpose of placing it on exhibi tion at the Atlanta exposition. “It is claimed that this is an acanthus fire urn, or, as it is sometimes called, a flesh pot. This urn has been in the pos session of Colonel Townes for nearly forty years, having been given to him in 1856 by Col. Mark A. Burnett, who in turn received it from Col. Christopher C. Haskins. "In reference to the vase or urn’s age, classification and origin, I will read you the following account of the relic from Sunday’s issue of the Richmond Times, to which I am referred by Colonel Townes: The Discovery. in me latter pare qi me last century Colonel Haskins, who resided near HaH kina’ Ferry, In the county of Mecklen burg-, while walking one day on the banks of the Roanoke river, had his at tention attracted by a round, white ob ject projecting from the bank where a sudden bend in the river had washed away the earth. He Immediately Investi gated the matter, and upon digging into the bank found what appeared to be an Indian grave, for besides the white ob ject, which turned out to be the Hesh pot above alluded to, were tomahawks, ar row heads and bows. Colonel Haskins too the urn home with him, and washed from it the dirt which had accumulated in its inter stices during the long years that It had laid burled in the bosom of the earth, and found it to be a vessel about 4V4 Inches in height and 4Vi Inches In diame ter. In color it resembled clarified beeswax, darkened by age, or a sort of very dark cream color. Outside It was curiously wrought by hand, the delicate figures upon it reminding one of Corinthian carv ing, and the inside was evidently taken out by picking it with a sharp tool, for the marks It left are plain, and at the bottom Inside the round plug left after digging around it was broken out, leav ing it rough for about 1 Inch in diameter. Colonel Haskins kept this curious find for many years, thinking it was an ar ticle manufactured by the Indian tribes which infested that locality, and finally gave it to Colonel Burnett, who, as above stated, presented It to Colonel Townes in 1856. The colonel realized that it was something of a curiosity, but had no Idea that It was anything out of the usual run of relics left by the departed Indians, and he kept It upon the center table in his parlor, where It made a pretty re ceptacle for visiting cards and bric-a brac. There It remained for a consider able time, until one day tt was seen by Prof. M. K. Amn, a noted geologist of Roanoke. Va., who at once recognized it as a curiosity of great value. “VVhqt is Its value?” the reporter asked. ‘‘Colonel Townes values the vase at $75, nnn ” Upon examining: it the professor at once affirmed that tit was a flesh-pot, and that it was brought to this continent in the unwritten past by the fire-wor shipping ancestors of the Mound-Build ers, from whom it was taken by some powerful Indian chief and buried with him. It was composed, »aid Professor Arnn. of the fat of human flesh, solidi fied by some pn>cess known to the an cient fire-worshippers, and was used by them for the reception of dismembered portions of the bodies of the worshippers, who were accustomed, as the urn was passed around at their religious exer cises, to cut off pieces of themselves, such as toes, fingers, ears, or even por tions of the nose, and to drop them into the vessel, which, when breathed upon by the priest, was an atonement for sin, according to their belief. Professor Arnn stated that a full description of this pe culiar vessel could be found In Stephens’ “Persecution of the Saints,*’ a book which is now extremely rare. The pro fessor strongly advised Colonel Townes to have the vessel examined by experts, and its claim to being a fire-urir fully established. In conformity with this advice the urn was sent to Washington, and an eminent ethnologist there suggested that It came from Phoenicia, having been brought here by the ship of Hiram, King c<f Tyrei Its origin cannot be of recent date, as the vessel bears upon it the marks of having been made entirely by hand, and it could not have been the work of In dians, for it Is totally different from the class of work done by them, of which so many traces remain. The carving upon the outside of the urn is done by a mas ter's hand, every line being perfect, and tho proportions true to a hair’s breadth. Colonel Townes does not profess to be an ethnologist or archaeologist, but he is firmly convinced that the opinion ex pressed by Professor Arnn is correct, and that his treasure cannot be less than 10, 000 years old. He believes, however, that the professor is mistaken In supposing the urn to be composed of the fat of hu man flesh. He jtliinks It is composed of WED ing i»i> o«r recent lioit your visit to MORROW & pure alabaster, and Its appearance bears out the belief that It is made of this cost ly material. In proof that at one time the flre-woh shippers Inhabited this land, records show that a tribe once dwelt in the prai ries west of Lake Michigan, who were known as the Mascomtlns, or “Nation de Fen,'" Nation of Fire. The earliest French accounts speak of the “Fire Na tion” as the dominant tribe. The descendants of these i>eople are the Foxes, and they still call themselves "M'ashkooteakl,” or Flrela'nd. These rec ords, then, seein to locate the origin of the mound builders. Their wandering life made out of the necessities of lire and sunlight, first an object of reverence and then of worship. That they possessed certain objects dear and sacred to them1 may well be supposed, and it is also rea sonable and probable that they should have been lost and found again. If these records are true, and there seems to be no reason to doubt that they are, the explanation of the findings of the fire urn In an Indian grave Is lucid and satisfactory. It is shown that the vessel, made, no man knows how many years ago, was handed down by this tribe of fire worshippers to their descendants, the F'oxes, and was finally burled as an object of veneration with some great chief, where lit remained until the action of the river again brought it to light. It Is interesting to speculate upon the history of this old vessel, which has doubtless seen the changing seasons of 1000 decades; which has reeked with hu man blood and witnessed the ravings of misguided religious fervor. It is, doubt less, a rare and wonderful relic, and the world will hear more of it when Investi gated by the proper authorities. While In Richmond last week, before shipping his precious relic to Atlanta, Colonel Townes permitted several of his friends to view it, and all agreed that they had seen nothing even approaching it in construction or material, and that it was his duty to exhibit it to the public. Mr. Agee will deliver the rare relic to the exposition authorities In person. He has in his possession also a mad stone, the property of Colonel Townes, which is said to possess wonderful virtues.

He Delivered a Long Address at the Reiehs rath Opening. Vienna, Oct, 22.—The autumn session of the reiohsrath was opened today, on which occasion Count Badeni, the new premier, made his first address in that capacity, announcing the policy of his ministry to the chamber. His speech was very long and frequently elicited ap plause. The government, he said, would respect the legitimate aspirations of all nationalities, but ait the same time it would regard as paramount the prin ciple that German culture, which held the first place in Austria, should be in no degree impaired. That the govern ment had full confidence in the Czech nation, lie continued, had been proved by the abolishment of exceptional laws in Prague. In view of this return to the normal state of things, the government would retain full liberty that action to wards all parties which the govern ment would judge, not only l>y their programmes, but by their inodes of ac tion. It was firmly resolved to prevent any uprising and this determination would lie rigidly adhered to. Count Badeni announced to the cham ber thatUiogovernmeritwouIdshorHy ENTS. tic? Novelties and ination ol* our sto BRIC-A-BRAC introduce a bill providing: for electoral reform. It was the desire of the min istry not only to give the workingman a vote, but also to ameliorate his material end. In conclusion he said it was the de sire of the government that Austria should be powerful and united, and in pursuit of this end Its motto would be ‘'Justice.” The applause at the conclusion of the premier's address was enthusiastic and prolonged. 300 pairs Charles Heiser’s best hand-made shoes lor men at a bargain.
