J.
,e IS GEORGE J. GOULD SICK AND
? WEARY OF TRYING TO GET

WELL, HARDLY.
d
h
il Among the writers of fiction in the
ll Pittsburg papers of yesterday were
- several who guessed that the visit of
e the younger Rockefeller to this city
J was for the purpose of smoothing over
the railroad war that has been precipitated
by the entry of the Wabash
system to the Pittsburg territory. It
= was an interesting guess, but there
was nothing conclusive in the accompanying
narrative, and why it' was not
y printed, in the fiction department ins
stead of the news columns is a raysf
tery. The incident, however, affords
s a suggestion lor She railroad reporters
> who build so many lines on paper or
h of our daily papers?the gentlemen
e in the air.
d Let these romancers of the rail int
quire whether It is not true that
it George J. Gould Is sick and weary of
e the whole scheme of extension to
c Pittsburg. It would he interesting ai1.
so to know whether it is a fact that
a he has declared his purpose to pour
no more millions into the enterprise
it until he can see his way to get some
e of his cash back. Like the man from
- Missouri, his cry is: "Show me!"
e They do say that this Wabash road is
s the most alluring proposition in blue
i- print that was ever conceived, and
2. the most costly in construction that
t was ever undertaken. There are
strange stories of real estate that cost
r- as much as if it were rich in free
gold, of coal lands that were put in at
e radium rates, of construction contracts
d that have amazed Mr. Gould's asso>r
ciates because of their lavish proportions,
and of various and sundry, other
discoveries that Mr. Gould has made
since he began his invasion of this
section.
Then, too, our newspaper experts
2' on railway operation might inquire
just how Mr. Gould hopes to make efl*
fective the much-boasted and boosted
Q contract for tonnage he is said to have
made with Mr. Carnegie and the Car'~-y
negie Steel Company. It would be
Lt worui while knowing liow Mr. Gould
e is going to haul material from the
e, Carnegie plants without tracks to
those plants. Likewise it would be
e of interest to know how the Wabash
* is going to handle the product of the
Jones & Laughlin company, in the ab?
sence of the trackage to that concern's
works. If it be claimed that the Wa3
bash may use the terminals now
e owned and operated by the Carnegie's
and Jones & Laughlin it might be en^
tertaining to recite what reply has
t- -wo Kv- tli nco tu-n mammnth
corporations to the Wabash proposal
- that this be done, and how disconcertlt
ing that reply was to the Gould peo11
pie. But even if such a trifling obi_
stacle be overcome by the experts, it.
would be valuable information to the
new line's officials if someone would
tell them how they are goiing to employ
the incoming cars necessary to
handle the outgoing traffic from the
O Carnegie plants. For it is intimated
s that when Carnegie made his famous
contract with Gould he did not bind
? his company to take any incoming ton5,
nage. The Carnegie's have ships, raild
roads, cars and all that sort of thing
y of their own, it. seems, and while they
d were "willing to guarantee tonnage
? from their plants for the Gould lines?
r if the latter could handle it?they figj
ured on laying down their own raw
j materials over their own lines,
o These are only a few of the prob.s
Iems that have been confronting the
3. Wabash builders. There are said to
]1 ; be others just as serious, and some
a I even more perplexing, but it would be

RESULTS.
A VERY SIGNIFICANT RESOLUTION
WAS PASSED AMID
GREAT REJOICING.
BUFFALO. N. Y., May 21.?It has
been evident from the start that the
Buffalo Assembly will make history
for the Presbyterian church as matters
of great importance are being
considered. If it keeps up the pace J
set in the opening days, it will go down
into history as one of the most important
in the history of the denomination.
A part of yesterday's deliverances, V
especially that part which swept away |
many of the differences that have Ions: s
existed between the Church, North s
and South, will be greeted the world
around as a decided advance and to g
thousands it will be a living and practical
sign of the union of the various
elements of the church. The resolution
which was passed with a shout ^
and celebrated by the singing of p
"Blest Be the Tie that Binds" was of q
fered by the Rev. T. S. Hamlin, of
Washington City. It was regarded as g
the .most significant resolution of its jkind
passed by the assembly since the p
civil war. The stated clerk, telegraph- ?
ed the resolutions to the Southern assembly
in Mobile, Ala. Louis H. Severance,
of Cleveland, was appointed
Vice-Moderator, and presided during
the afternoon session.
The first dispute over the proposed V(
union arose when the stated clerk ask- gi
ed that its consider v.ion be made :ho p
special order of the day for Thurs- ^
day. The Rev. John Fox, of New York,
who is opposed to the union, objected
to" the report coming up late in the ^
session and moved that it be oonsid- ^
cred on Tuesday. ^
At this point the discussion became
ively and the cleric a:m^.irced thaL
as the overture for the union. had
come from the Cumberland church, the d
assembly ought to wait and taice as- a
tion alter the Cumberland church it- '1
self had taken action which will like- f<
!y be early next week. It was decided f
to take the question up on Thursday k
to debate it till the subject is disposed _
of. It is intimated that the Cumberland
church might not take favorable
action, and should that he the case,
it would be useless for the assembly
to consume considerable time debating
the question. The understanding
among those who favor the union is
that the Rev. Moffat, leader of the de- _
hate, and he is looked upon as the man !
who can propose the final plan, will I
bring all the forces together as he did
during the discussion on the revision \
of the confession of faith two years
ago.
The report of the special committee
appointed to confer with representatives
of other churches regarding
marriage and divorce lias been set
down for Monday.
Dr. Chas. A. Dickey-, of Philadelphia,
is chairman of this special committee.
The subject of marriage and divorce
is likely to give rise to an interesting ?
debate.
This afternoon the delegates and
their friends will,enjoy a trip to Niagara
Falls on a special train over the
Erie .Railroad.
The .people of Buffalo will have the
opportunity on Sunday to hear the
popular preachers of the Assembly, as
they have been assigned to the prom- g
