Tb« Demand for Mor« Eligible Quarters for the Or
ganization Growing Very Decidedly—Plan«
Dimmed Informally for a New
Last evening was the time for tbe regu
lär monthly meeting ot tbe Chamber of
Commerce, bot, aa usual, there was not a
quorum, and therefore no business was
transacted. A great deal of informal dis
cussion of a number of interesting topics
resulted, however, and there is good reas
on for tbe belief that the little gathering
will not be without some beneficial results.
Tbe leading topic touched upon, and the one
to which the most time was devoted, was
the want of better and more convenient
quarters for the Chamber. For months
there has been a growing feeling that if
the regular meetings ware to be continued
and anything like a fair proportion of the
members of the organization attracted to
the room, there must be a change of loca
tion. At the last special meeting of the
body this subject was touched upon, and
the result was the appointment of a spe
cial committee to seek suitable quarters
and make a general report to tbe Chamber.
The idea has been that tbe present room
is too far out of tbe beaten path of even
ing travel toattract any but those mem
bers who are either interested in some
project, or who take such a deep concern
in the welfare of the body as to be willing
to go out of their road to attend its meet
ing. Main street, below Twelfth is dark
and unattractive after night; there is no
travel there; the rooms front on an alley,
are up a long tligbtof dingy stairs, and once
the member is there, he finds nothing to
interest him. There is no literature, save
and except one trade paper, which is
printed in Spanish ; there is but the one
large apartment, where one not especially
interested in the transaction of the routine
business must nevertheless sit through it
or else go home, and to crown all, the
room is open but once a month, as a regu
lar thing, and that once comes after night
All this is unsatisfactory <u the extreme,
and the first drift of the talk last night was
in the direction of recounting these draw
backs. It was the universal belief of those
present that the location of the headquar
ter» of the body should be changed, and
that with the change tbe scope of theorgan
ization should be very materially broad
ened. It was felt that not only was there
a demand for regular meetings for the trans
action of business, but that the rooms
should be open at all reasonable hours for
»ho «nniAnirncf ot' members, that there
should be committee rooms or other apart
ments where members and their friends
could discuss matters of a private
natnre without coming in conflict
with the routine business of the body, and
that there should be at .hand for the infor
mation of the members all the leading trade
papers, and such other literature as might
be deemed neceseary or desirable by the
members- It was conceded that all this
would add to the attractiveness and valne
of the organization, but at the same time
it was felt that above everything else there
should be a change of location to Market
street, somewhere, if possible, betweeu
Twelfth and Fourteenth, and this led up
gracefully to some interesting information
from a member ol the special committee
appointed to seek more eligible quarters.
This gentleman stated that he had made
a thorough canvass of Market street, be
tween Sixteenth and Twelfth, and had
been unable to find more than a single
room at all suitable for the needs of the
body, and that room was not especially
desirable. A member who takes a deep ;
interest in the Chamber, and who has re
cently been abroad, referred to the com
mon practice of commercial bodies in other
lands making their headquarters at some
leading hotel, and this brought out the
suggestion that perhaps apartments mi^ht
be secured in that way in this city. The
room jnst at the left band of the Market
street entrauce to the McLure House, now
used as a reading room, was talked of, as
being a model of convenience, but there <
was doubt expressed as to the ability of ]
the Chamber to obtain it.
By and by some one asked: "Why
should not the Chamber have a building i
of its own?" Ths question has been '
asked before, and has even been dis
cussed at length, in the past few months, J
but never has there been the interest «
manifested when the thing was referred 1
to last night. A document submitted to I
the Chamber in March last was brought
forth from its grave in a table drawer and
read, and this served to create a still more
favorable impression. It was thought
by those present that a building say five (
stories high, of imposing architecture,
senger elevators, and all the modern con- f
veniences, could be put ap for somewhere ,
in the vicinity ot $."»'',000, and from statis- ,
tics submitted, it waa felt that there would
l>e no trouble in securing a ten per cent
income on such an investment. The first
lloor of the proponed building would be de
voted tO*store-rooms, and the upper tloors
would be divided up into offices, among
which would be included a large room for
the convenience of the Chamber, this to be
located on the second floor, and to be sur
rounded with committee and reading
rooms, etc. The gentlemen dwelt upon
the attractiveness such quarters would
possess for the members of the organ iza
tion, and the more the thing was dis
cussed the stronger became the feeling
that the plan was feasible. At the end
of half an hour, and before the gentlemen
separated, there was a well-defined purpose <
in the minds of half a dozen to make a '
start in the matter, and it is pretty safe to •
say that a certificate of incorporation will <
be applied for very soon, the purpose being ]
to secure subscriptions of stock to a Cham- !
ber of Commerce building. 1
The discussion of last evening went «
much farther in some directions than has I
been here indicated. Locations for the f
talked of building were referred to, for <
instance, but it would be manifestly im
proper to refer to these matters at this '
time. It is to be sincerely hoped '
that this thing will materialise; <
and there Is no very good rea
son why it should not Certainly there
would b>? no lack of a demand for fine
office quarters, in a building where the
rent would be moderate, the accommoda
tions strictly first class, the free services
of a janitor at the disposal ot tenants, and ]
a good and permanent location secured.
As for the store-room feature of the build
ing, there would even be less difficulty re
garding tenants. The Registre knows of
at least one merchant who has been anxious
for years to get sufficiently roomy quarters
ou Market street, and who has expressed
his willingness to take a ten years' lea*; on
the right store-room. Doubtless there are
others in the same fix.

The "Two Orphans" is a dramatic story
nore thrilling in its narration and more

illustration than has ever before been of

lay that it owes its chief charm to the

the track where he was standing on to
another, when he was struck by an
engine, which was coming in an
opposite direction. He was knocke«!
down, but picket! himself up and got out
of the way. He was hurt so badly he had

The Hero of Speei« Payment Make* a Tour Through
the Industrial fetablishmeote and Speaks in
the Evening—How the Old Gen
tleman Acted.
Senator John Sherman, the hero of
specie payment« and the candidate in em
bryo for the Presidency of the United
States, saw more machinery yesterday than,
ever before in the same length of time. It
wasn't all political machinery either, and
if the hnm of bnsy wheels, and the rnsh of
hundreds of honest-faced laborers, with
begrimed countenances, can inspire the
haman heart to an appreciation of how one
half of the world toils to lurniah luxuries
and necessities for the other, and that this
yalley represents a fair share of the bone
and sinew of the oonntry, John Sherman'«
heart mnst be fall of it
Senators are not common occurrences
over in Belmont county, and the tall, erect
form of Senator Sherman aud his pleasant
face attracted attention everywhere he
went After his speech in St Clairsville
on Wednesday night he went to Bellaire,
and at seven o'clock yesterday morning—
the same hour at which the employees of
the different manufactories seek their work
shops and places of employment—he start
ed out upon his tour of inspection and
handshaking among the industrial estab
was spent among Bellaire's principal
scenes of industry, and at noon he landed
in Bridgeport, and was the guest of Wilbur
Tallman for dinner. His dinner honr was
spent in discussing a frugal meal, and
abont two o'clock he was taken in charge
by a committee of Bridgeport citizens,
consisting of Mayor C. A. J un kins, Char
les H. Cauffman, Wilbur Tallman, Wil
liam Howells, Thomas Mtillaney, Gibson
Caldwell, and Seymour Danlevy, who
drove at once to the .V.tna Iron and Steel
Works, where the Senator viewed the pro
cess of manufacturing sheet and
bar iron and rails. He met
and shook hands with nearly
every man in the establishment, which
covers ten acres, and represents more capi
tal tbau any other similar establishment
in the Valley. At the north end of the
mill, the Martin's Ferry corporation line
and that of Bridgeport, mark the ending
of both towns, and the Senator was again
formally turned over to another commit
tee, composed of
The Martin's Ferry committee consisted
C. Mitchell, James H. Drennen, William
Lipphardt, Lee Wood?, William Mann,
John Roberta, Benjamin Powell, Hon.
John S. Cochran, M. R. Smylie and E. J.
Hoyle. It is a very fair representation of
Martin'H Ferry'* manufacturing and busi
ness interests.aud was very properly »elected
for the purpose. The «Senator was taken in
hand *by these gentlemen and escorted
through the Standard mill, where every
effort was made to bring to his notice ail
the various minuta? of the manufacture
of sheet iron. He was shown how the iron
is puddled, rolled into muck bar, sheared,
heated in pairs, and rolled into sheets, how
the sheets strimmed, annealed, painted
on a mach.ae, and lasted corrugated and
bundled an ! prepared for the market.
He shook the brawny hands ol the men in
the establishment, and did not shndder or
draw back when a hand as black as grease
and tar conld make it was presented for his
grasp. From the Standard mill the party
drove directly to the Laughlin mill with
out making a stop. They were met at the
office by Secretary Fred Strong and hearti
ly welcomed. Manager Harry Wetherald
and William Ford took the party in
charge and conducted them first into the
new factory recently built of structural
iron. When
stepi>ed from the wareroom into the fac
tor? proper, where the roar from the hun
dred and My machines struck his ears, he
knitted his brows and his face assumed an
expression of curiosity, as if he feared
that he was aliout to be ushered into the
presence of his royal nibs—the evil one.
Bnt he soon became accustomed to it, and
the screeching tones in which the
employes address each other so they
may be heard above the din
liecame music to his ears. Every greasy
haud that was presented was heartily
squeezed, and those uot presented were
sought for. A complete tour of the
plant was made, and for the first time the
Senator wax given a glimpse of the place
repudiated by Ingersoll, when he was al
lowed to look into a heating tornace heated
to 1,000 degrees. When the old gentle
man left the Laughlin mill his haud was
as blac k and greasy as that of any em
ployee, and be only needed bis overalls,
blouse and hand leathers to pass off for an
employee in any department, ^from
"cinder monkey" to nailer. He spoke
to those about him concerning
the vastness of the establishment and
the increasing availability of natural gas.
He seemed very much impresued with the
cordial reception accorded him by Repub
licans and Democrats alike in the estab
lishment, and was profnae in his th&nks to
the management for the kindness and oon
Hideration riisnlnved iu their eiTnrta in
make his visit conducive to agreeable
The party waa next driven to the Elson
Glass Works, where Manager Elson met
them and conducted them through the
plant. The first place visited was the
office, then the packing room, etching and
cutting whops, and factory proper, where
Mr. Sherman se-emed to he deeply inter
ested in what he «aw. The dextrous
motion« of the workmen, swinging and
blowing the melted material, and pressing
it into unique shape* seemed to teach the
city's guest that brains
as well as bracn, wu needed among the
men who, by politicians, are osnally sup
posed to only strike and vote. From the
factory he was taken through the mould
shops and to the sample rooms, where be
was very much pleased witb tbe elegant
samples of tableware, lamps and art goods
displayed. One set of opalescent polka
dot ware seemed to take his eye, and he
inquired n{ Manager Elson the price of it
Mr. Elson appeared inclined to give the
Senator a set of the ware as a testimonial,
but tbe prospective candidate for national
honors declined to receive it unies« he was
allowed to pay for it. At length it was
arranged for the company to send to Mr.
Sherman, at bis home at Mansfield, a box
of ware, including a set of tbe opalescent
and several odd pieces, and it was also
agieed that he should be all»wed to pay
tbe freight and that a bill for tbe full
price should accompany tbe purchase.
From here the committee and their guest
wer» drives to tbe Ben wood blast furnace,
where handshaking was tbe order. From
gifts-1 works was a short drive, and as it
was growing late and the Senator was tired,
an examination of tbe sample rooms was
tbe only indulgence. To. Mann's foun
dry was then inspected, and tbe party
drove to Hon. John H. Cochran's residence,
on Fourth street, where Mr. Sherman took
After supper be addressed a large audi
ence in Lafayette Hall. When his din
course was completed, a large part of tbe
audience left the boose, bot Mr. McKelvey
and Col. Poorman made abort talks to those
remaining. Mr. Sberman was driven to
Wheeling, where be put op at tbe Mc
Lore, and held an impromptu reception.
