"MAY LOSE ALL MY FRIENDS, BUT
I'M GOING TO CLEAN PITTSBURG" PITTSBURG, Pa., Jan. 28.— When Francis J. Heney started to clean out San Francisco he had the backing of millions and the ser vices of loyal detectives and ex pert graft investigators. District Attortfey Wm. A. Blakeley of this city has started out to do the same kind of work that Heney did in San Francisco. Only be has been deserted, at the very hour when he needs the moral aid of Pittsburg's best citi zens, by all his friends. With a dozen political leaders and million aires already indicted, Blakeley says: "I am-going to lose all the friends 1 ever had, but Pittsburg will be clean when I get through. This city for the first time is in for a real eleaning-up. I have my hands lull now with the men I have under arrest; the others will come along in good time." Less than four months ago five of Ihe city's greatest doctors stood at the bedside of the fighting dis trict attorney. They shook their heads and issued a statement that be COttld not live through the night. The city mourned but the grafters secretly were pleased. Blakeley, fighting for life with the same strength that he is now BILLY SUNDAY HURLS LIE AT HUBBARD AND SCORES DANCE YOUXOSTOWN. 0., Jan. 28.— ] People v/ho attended Rev. Hilly j Sunday's evangelistic meeting in hts revival tabernacle yesterday I are wondering how badly the ears j of Fra Klbertus Hubbard burned at l-.'ast Aurora, N. V., while Sunday was talking. Sunday took occasion to come hack at the editor of the Philistine for his recent attacks on the evan gelist. Fra Klbertus recently roasted Sunday's methods, and re ferred to an incident a year ago, when a man attacked Sunday in the midst of a meeting with a horse whip. Sunday said: "There never was a man who de famed me as Klbertus Hubbard did in his little, villifying sheet. He said a maniac tried to horsewhip me because I had insulted his wife. It was a lie, and he knows it. 1 am here to deliver the goods, and I am ready for him any time. "I hate to see a man or woman who thinks he knows more than Ood." Theh he went on: "There are a lot of people like that, and I suppose there are some in this audience, People are stuck up because they have a little money and have married into Ihe families on the bill, when they have a head full of nothing but bulk oysters and sawdust." He scored (lancing and moonlight drives: "One of the most damnable, hell born institutions this side of hell Is tfie dance. If a young man were to ask my daughter to go buggy riding after dark. I would knock him down so ouick he wouldn't know what hit him." GERMANS STOCKING UP WITH AMERICAN SHOES The Retaliatory Tariff Increase on Them After February 7 Will Be 50 Cents a Pair. • ukuux. .Tan. 28. —American shoo manufacturerta are making ex traordinary shipments, on orders from their German agents in antici pation of the enforcement, of Ger many's general tariff against American importations on and after February 7. A representative of one of the larger companies lolling American shoes says the tariff in crease will average 66 cents a pair. The newspapers generally de plore a tariff war with America, and some of those Journals which heretofore have been the severest critics of the American tariff are now expressing hope that a com promise will be reached. The socialist and radical organs improve the opportunity to contend that German meat prices are too high and should be lowered through the opening of the frontiers to for eign stock, and in this they are joined by the butchers. Germany is also involved in sharp controversies with France, Canada und Portugal over the matter of reciprocal tariffs.
