Huffman, Hrkrfupnri Pnlifpinaii, Hh Stent a Ballet Tnroagn Hfa Heart. At tlip rgn':ar meeting of tue T'iifriDrft Shirty of Western Penn-y .vanis last oignt, George H. J-rt,wn read an mtOTMrting paper on "n,p Sfw-n of Pittsburgh. Mr. Browne is lir.w u p-rvisr of tbe middle division of tb Fort Wayne railroad, bat for a long time was -onnect-I with the City Eogi- nf ?r' rfiice, and thrfore knows whereof The meeting wan very largely Pretrial j n t Mtstcalfe occu pied Some routine business was aft which Mr Browne de- iitandfd attention. The papr f'3t rfrm! to the agitation in Aiiiit, 177, caui ry the prevalence nf diphtheria on the Sonth Side. At that tirnet'iTtr Enziceer loirtr doy x am:n-d our Hvstm of ewra. He diseov- en-ii that the d-ftt conid beat be reme- at Ieaf, ctt by building new sew bra. The nartfr then eon tinned : Iet 11 n first lay down tbe conditions to whi4 h a well built ttewer system must con ftirm. Int. It mnst be of sacb size that it shall carry off ail rainfall, sewage, etc, from that district or basin for which it is do- pitfn d, and not larger than is necessary to in ret the maximum requirements. nd. The grade especially where liiiht fail can only be secured, should be VTt rtly straieht. :!rd. It phouid be built of such shape a to Hectire trie greatest pfioie velocity, es- pmuy at a minimum flow, and than car ry ot. aU matter afiiGii;nt.y quick to pre vent aepfmipotiinon. 4ih. Tne brick work or masonry ahou be rerfertly watertight. 5rh. Tbeinrertor should be finished to a Hiuooth and uniform surface. Tbe benefit to be derived from a smooth ly finished interior now briefly portrayed and the shape of tbe sewer was also hinted at, the writer drawing the conclusion that a newer of the shape A an egg is perhaps toe uenv TWEN'TV-FIBST STREET SBWIlt. Mr. Browne next paid his attention to the sewer on Twenty-first street, South t de, which insanely enough curves into Sarah ttreet, thence curves again into Nineteenth street, which strangely enough follows in a straight line to the river. trays tlie paper: j "No sane engineer would make such a j lotion. Ic muHt certainly have been iu.de by soroe promiscuous Councilmanic interference, instigated by constituents, who thought tby were subserving their own interests wbun in reality they were culpably blind to them. This sewer has 8 ritcie for a cross-section when, judging from wfcat we have already said on the siiHect, it sboald have been egg-shaped The entire territory drained by th sewtr is about 219 acres. If a sewer 4 19 teet in diameter had been built on a straight line following Twenty-first srret the same benefits would have beerj derived. The iw to the city, Mr. Brown figured, 'was from the nnngline manner In winch this sewer was built. The lor s to The city from the faulty conatrno tion of the Washington street sewer was 1H,(W. The fault of the sewers is that they are longer and larger than necessary, aim are, nut, 01 rorreci snape. WHACK AT THE BOARD OF HEALTH. ub ifin b ui huts xuara oi tieaitu on the South Side sewers was next discussed and the profo?ition of the Board ridiculed. This proposition was that Councils should consult the Board when building sewers- The paper then continues: "i ne worionpaneia river carries in pension a fine silt which has been deposited dunne immersion over inis entire area ft r in i e g a strata al most i m pervious water and certainly to sewage. Over this laver there is probably from fif teen to twenty feet of embankment. hence the sewers He above the stratasinoe none of them are over twelve fret deep. These sewers being badly bnilt the poisonous fluid has ieen escaping for years, ana beiog unable to percolate Through this silt has spread laterally ami vertically leavening tbe entire so perineum hen t mass of earth, so that there is not a house in this entire territory bat what encloses within its walls sewer deposits. On the Sonth Side are many wprings also which absorb water from the pnvies " "That the diphtheria recurring in 1877 and IrtTfl mat have had its origin in this way is shown by its appearance in the weaithier families in the Kast End. and points where if investigation were prosecuted the cause might be found to exint. in the lack of a sewer system, the nature of the soil preventing any purification by percolation and the posnn1ns of the springs by a surface flow of water." I'lTTSIirtUJH'S A DVAJTTAOES REMEDY FOR THE BVII. "There are few cities in the United States, if any, lietter topographically situated than Pittsburgh for a correct sewer system, and to that fact alone can be ascribed 1 comparative freedom from contagions diese. It certainly owes no debt of gratitude to its early engineers, who simply carried each sewer to tbe river, where they left jt to ponr ont its putrid contents where the current was most sluggish. As a result we find sewage matter held in suspension about the mouth at each sewer or deposited along the shore, rendering the entire river front a most, indescribable nuisance during the aum-mt-r months." "AH attempts at sanitary reform will prove as useless as expensive until two mam lines are constructed, one parallel with the Allegheny and one parallel with tue ftlocotigaht-ia river, intersecting all laterals and di:charging their united content- into the Ohio river where the current is swiftest. Had this plan beeu adopted at an earlier date it could have been accomplished at an ex pense very little greater than required to tmiui up tne present svstem, where each se wer i carried several bund red feet further than would then have been neces sary. A similar plan should be adopted on the South Side. The plan may be ex pensive, hnt tue necessity is urgent. Mr. Samuel Diescher next read a paper on "A Kire Proof Library Building," and presented piars lor ine same. Uity Eo gineer Ltempster desired to know what hid nggeteil the paper and President Metcalie said that he had suggfcstrd it though he would disclaim any intention of erecting such a structure. He felt that shouid the society in time collect a vain ante technical nt-rary such as tbo city needed it should be btored in a fire proof UUKUiUg. John Seidehl, a resident of McKeesport, was shot throi: gh the heart by Samuel H. Hoffman, a p -d iceman of that borough, about two o'clock yesterday morning. SeideLl had hen at Dravosburg attending a miners ba'l. He returned to Mc Keesport with Miss Maggie Miller and Mr. Charles Zimmerman, both relatives, accompanhd Jen to the !on z ima House, at Fourth and Market streets aud continued his way along Market street. At the corner of Fifth he was discovered by OfHeer Samuel H. Hoffman. According to Hoffman's statement, Seidehl, tiom ne dm not recognize, excitea nis suspicions and afterwards swore he would shoot him, and advanced toward him as though he meant to carry ont his threat wben Mottrnan nrea the fatal shot. Hoffman's brother utheers beard the shot, rushed to the spot and discovered that the victim was idehl. The bod v was removed to the Montezuma house, kept by Jacob Weis-kercher, a reUtive of tbe deceased. THE Q TEST. Coroner Hope was notified of tbe homi cide yesterday morning.

Thft Jury returned the following verdict: "That John 8eulehl( aged twenty-two yeatf, was shot and instantly killed on the morning of April 19rb, 1881, at the corner of Market and fifth streets, First ward, McKeesport, Pa , by D. H. Hoffman, police officer. The jury further found that the killing of Johu Seidehl was justifiable, as the testimony clearly established the fact that Hoffman considered his own life in danger." Oth(.er Hoffman alter the shootinc was allowed, to spend the night at home. After th inquest he was arrested, oy Chief ot Police figieyanu nrought to tins city. His counsel here made application for his release, which was granted. He furnished fo.OOO bail. John fcieidehl, the victim, was employed at the pop bottling house of Henry Eald- strohm in McKeesport, He leaves a wife and one child. He had no weapon on his person when shot. He had been drinking, but was not intoxicated. Officer Hoffman ia about 50 years of age, and h s been on the McKeesport police force ooly four or rive months. He was formerly an auctioneer, and kept a store in the town. He is a very quiet, respectable man. He has been severely criticised for permitting bu rgiars to escape last week, and it was the numerous burglaries committed there so recently that made him appreneusive. WHAT THE i'KOPLB THfVK SE1DEHX. S FAMILY: The McKeesport Times of last evening says White the greater portion of the pub lic condemn the nasty action of Officer Hoffman in shooting down his victim last night, some surprise is felt and expressed alM at what some m ople term the remark able verdict ot the Coroner's jury, that of "Justifiable Homicide." The verdict was rendered upon hearsay evidence, the officer bimseif not having beeji Bworn. Tne reasons given by the Coroner were that tbe officer should not be called upon to criminate himself and on the same grounds perhaps he should not be allowed the opportunity ot vindicating hitnseir. No one questions that the deceased. Seidehl, did something to excite the sus picions of the, officer, whom he knew to be his friend and being of a joking disposi tion wauted to perpetrate a joke upon his friend, thinking, perhaps, the officer knew him. l h family and relatives and inends ot Mr. aeidehf, as tar as we can ascertain are willing to believe Mr. Hoffman's story, and are willing to, and do exonerate him from all blame in the unfortunate occur rence, and the public should dismiss the subjt-ct regardless of the verdict of the Coroner's jury."

Our Hat Department now occupies the first floor of tlie Fourth avenue section of our immense establishment, and contains a display of Trimmed and Dntrimmed Hats and Bonnets, which for extent and elegance is unrivalled west of New York. We have Hats in every size, shape and material, from the cheapest to the most expensive and a lady must be hard to please, indeed, if we fail to suit her. We invite all our patrons to visit this branch of our establishment, and see for themselves how well selected is our assortment and how reasonable are our prices. WALLPAPER DANZIGKERS, IS BOUND TO DO THE BISINESS. T IS A QUESTION OF MONEY AND NOTHING ELSE WITH ninety-nine in a hnnlrel men what they shall wear. They are not sure judges of clothing. Nobody is. The lest judges don't pretend to he. Nolwdy can lie really, who is not in the netiveClothingtradp. So how isita question of money I lVe mean that you intend it shall te. On the whole, you make it so somehow for ninety-nine in a hundred don't go wrong on a question of money. We venture to admit lliat our clothing got the vogne it has through bt'ing less cosily and more reliable than any other, steadily, year in and year out. Put this in other language ami it is just what others would say. They do say we sot our immense trade by breaking; down prices. THEY ARE BIGHT, and we intend to keep it in the same way. But we choose to call attention to the fact that low-price is nothing unless joined to reliability in quality. It is by this achievement, the joining of low prices, with absolute reliability as to quality that our name has got this meaning and its following in trade. We are not vain enouch nor foolish ei onsh either, to believe that yon will buy ourdothing when we cease to do the best we can and to charge you the least we ean. Oar title to yon r trade :s exact ly tliis : We clothe you bptter; we charge you less. Then why should we not have your trade if.as we mentioned in ourleginniug,whatyou are after is to get the best clothes you can and have as much money left over as you can ? Then come where th prices of such clothing as you really require are tlie lowest. Then you will by all means come to onr house. S. COHEN & GO. I 52, 54, 56, 58 and GO Market St., . ..
