MARCH 3, 1000. SATURDAY MORXING, THE PITTSBURGH POST. PLAN NEW Ml IT COURT HOUSE. LesKe Talks to Ward Chairmen Behind Kocked Doors at Ring Headquarters. SENTINELS ON DUTY; LIST CP JOBS READ. Belief That Ax Will Rise and Fall Again Soon How Sceme is Is to Be Worked. BEHIND locked doors, with outside and inside sentinels to make privacy doubly secure, Max G. Leslie is alleged to have launched another movement last night to secure more jobs in the court house for hungry "supporters 01 the ring "organization." It was supposed to be a meeting of the ward chairmen "to get their views on the matter." There is deep significance in the statement that the ward chairmen were present "to gret their views." Max is said to have supplied them. He did nearly all the talking, that is, all the talking when it came down to matters of "real business." The scene of thi3 extremely Interesting meeting was the headquarters of the Republican executive committee in Grant street. Only those who had the pass word down fine could gain admission. It was necessary for them first to undergo scrutiny by the outside sentinel before they were even allowed to take the next step of knocking at the door. Then the inside sentinel looked them over. If they were of the elect that is, it the person happened to be a ward chairman or a citizen high in the councils of the ring, he was allowed to enter. Made Some of Them Angry. Some of the ring followers who have been in the habit of dropping into headquarters of an evening to find out how things were going, were highly incensed at this treatment of them as if they were suspicious characters and left the place In high dudgeon. Chairman Lesle. it i3 said, had a list of all the employes at the court house who have not the ring's brand on them. He read this list to the ward chairmen assembled and then parceled them out to the chairman of the wards In which said employes live. It Is up to the chairmen to fill their places with men who will render service to the ring. Such was the plan unfolded behind locked doors. Simple little things on the surface. Must Have More Jobs. But it Is a matter of great Interest to a small army of employes at the court house. Mr. Leslie needs more jobs m nis business. The ring management will tali far short of keeping all its promises to give out jobs to faithful worners, but it means to do the best it can, and the jobs at the court house comprise the only opportunity. Another meeting of the ward chairmen will be called soon for reports on what has been done with the lists supplied to them. If the decision is "Let U3 at the jobs," then ine ax will rise and fall once more at the court house. The meeting last night was well attended. It is said that the job question was the only one considered. Leslie as a Reformer. Earlier in the day Mr. Leslie declared himself to be desirous of having peace established in the Republican party of Allegheny county. He said he did not approve of his friends speaking harshly of those who are opposed to the methods of the organization and he added that he wished those on the other side would soon begin to view the organization in a different light. The chairman of the Republican executive committee also desires to become known eventually as a reformer. He eays that reform of the lasting kind will come only through the old party organizations.

WHILE STRIKE CLOUDS GATHER VY ... fftAT T $1 A rf W mmmaj Mm r mm mm CONTRACTORS Encounter Mine in Excavating for New Twelfth Ward School Building Five-Foot Vein Found Holding Over 5,000 Tons of Good Burning Fuel People Eagerly Buy. WITH two coal strikes threatening and coal prices soaring Into the luxury class, Allegheny comes to the rescue. Coal can be had on the North-side for 51 a ton. There is over 5,000 tons of the precious fuel, and as fast as it is mined It is being eagerly bought up by families in the Nunnery Hill, Conservatory Hill and East street or Butchers' run districts. The mine is at the bottom of an excavation for the Twelfth ward school building, Fairview avenue. Murphy Brothers, the general contractors on the job, in excavating for the cellar of the building, reached a five foot vein of coal at the depth they intended to complete operations. On the advice of Architect William E. Snaman, the contractors started to build the foundation over the mine. Superintendent Ellsworth Murphy, of the Allegheny bureau of building Inspection, ordered that the coal be taken out first-The contractors then began digging out TROLLEY LINES BUY MANY RAILS. New Business Marked by Unique Feature Steel Men Interested. . Two-thirds of the new business in the steel rail trade during the past week, which amounted to over 82.000 tons, according to Pittsburgh steel men, was for new traction lines building in all portions of the country. This significant state of affairs has not been passed unnoticed by the steel manufacturers, who are watching with close attention all changes of late in the railroad development. The proportion of rails called for by traction lines this year is said to reach a higher figure than ever before in the history of the country. Electrio lines are largely suburban or inter-borough system roads, and this has helped to swell the total demand for these rails. With the (steel rail orders for the year approximating 3,000,000 tons, the pig iron market, which, just now Is quieter than It has been for some time la new business, the situation seems to have become one of hurrying orders already booked for the first half of the year and not worrying over business for the second half. Most of the trading at present has been for small lots of iron, both of the Northern and Southern variety'. It is noticed that the most active spirit in the pig iron market is close to the rail mills, and this has shown the tremendous Etrength of that branch of the trade.

Not long ago, .It was stated that there was some opposition to the Santa Fe Central gaining an entrance to Alber-querqus, and this was because an agreement had been reached between the road and the Gould interests for trackage rights over its Alberquerqus division and to that city which the Gould lines were anxious to reach. The opposition to this deal was said to come from the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe road which has until now held the monopoly of the freight and traffic from the lively New Mexican city, a business that 13 increasing rapidly and is alone worth millions of dollars annually. This difficulty over the Gould connection with the road gave rise to the rumor last night that the proposed purcnasers of the property are really the Gould interests who, fear that unless they do so, they will be shut out of the desired connection with Alberquerque. by the opposition gaining control of the property. That Gould may be behind the Tall-madge deal is shown by a special dispatch from New Tork fo "The Post," which aid that the Gould people declined to discuss Tallmadge matter last night, saying they may have something to say later. AN ODD EPIDEMIC. Pupils In Larimer Avenue School Are Stricken Is Puzzle to Doctors. Directors Begin Probe. A peculiar disease has broken out among the pupils of the Larimer school, Larimer avenue and Winslow street. Twenty-first ward, which is puzzling the physicians of that district. It first made its appearance among the foreign scholars, but being of a contagious nature, it soon spread to others. In all 25 pupils have become affected, and compelled to remain away rrom school. The directors of the school met last night to take action against a further spread of the disease. Some time ago the Civic club asked per-mislon of the directors to have a physician make an examination of the pupils of the school. The request was granted but as yet nothing has been done. Last night the board communicated with Mrs. James G. Geegan of 5632 Marga-retta street, who made the proposition on behalf of the Civic club, and she promised to have their physician, Dr. George W. Rail, of 2"0 Frankstown avenue, investigate at once. In the meantime, the board will have the rooms thoroughly fumigated as the situation has become so serious, further affection would result in closing the schools. The Larimer school Is In the midst of a large foreign colony in the East End, and the physicians declare the diseasa has been carried into the school by children from such homes. U. S.

The coal burns well In stoves and if the contractors succeed in disposing of the product at l per ton they will be well paid for the extra excavation they have to make. The size of the excavation is 150x150 feet, and as the vein is five feet thick the excavation will produce about 112,500 bushels of coal, or about 5,090 tons. Thirty-five or 40 years ago this vein of coal was worked extensively. A man named Speer carried on coal mining there on an extensive scale and used trained dogs instead of mules or other draughting power to bring the coal from the "mines." The old Catholic cemetery on Nunnery Hill is undermined with a veritable honeycomb of passages dug out years ago by Speer. Other sections In the neighborhood also are cut under In the same way. There are over 100 acres of coal still undeveloped that belong to this vein, but as it contains a large percentage of sulphur it will hardly pay to work it. CARNEGIE DONATES $20,000 TO COLLEGE. Hastings, Neb., School Gets That Amount Conditioned on Raising $100,000 for Library. Rev. E. VanDyke Wight, president of Hastings college, at Hasting, Neb., who is now In Pittsburgh, received a telegram yesterday stating that Andrew Carnegie had given $20,000 to the college. The gift is conditioned. Some time ago the col lege began a movement to collect $100,000 and Mr. Carnegie's conditions are that this sum be raised and that his contribution be used to erect a building for a library and science hall. Practically the first of these conditions has been met, as the subscriptions now aggregate almost 175,000. Hastings college is a Presbyterian Institution, and Presbyterians throughout the - country have been aiding it. P. L. Johnston, of Hastings, the college treasurer, came to Pittsburgh in December and has been very successful in raising money here. The First, Third, Shadyside and East Liberty Presbyterian churches in particular have been liberal in their donations. President Wight expects to be able to raise the. balance required in this field. The $75,000 that has been subscribed has come chiefly in small contributions, the heaviest individual subscriber being D. K. Pearson, of Chicago, who gave $10,000.

Kenna's Friends Send Floral Tribute. Both branches of councils last night passed the ordinance for the purchase from the Robert Wightman estate, in the Nineteenth ward, of 12 acres of land to be added to Highland park. The price, $90,000, will be taken from the park bond fund. Select council,, which had met in special session, also passed finally the last of the fiscal ordinances, that levying taxes and assessing water rents, the water schedule having been reduced in several instances at a meeting last Wednesday. Another matter before the select council was an ordinance amending the ordinance creating the office of delinquent tax collector. The measure was referred to the financial committee. It provides for a division of the collection of 5 per cent on delinquent taxes, 3 per cent going to the city and 2 per cent to the collector, the reverse of the division as It is at present. This move Is in apposition to the proposal to abolish the office of delinquent tax collector. Flowers for Kenna. When select council convened Edward H. Kenna was sworn In aa the new member from the Twelfth ward. He was elected to fill the unexpired term of John Barry, who resigned. A large floral horseshoe of red roses, carnations and sweet lyssium, a gift from friends in his ward, adorned the desk of Mr. Kenna. A feature before and after the meetings of both branches of councils last evening was the activity of the various candidates for the city clerkship. H. W. Minnemyer, Jr., John E. Gable, present city clerk and assistant city clerk, respectively; J. L. Lowry, of the Twentieth ward, and "Bob" Clark, at present transcribing clerk in the city clerk's office, were the busy candidates. Each claimed to be making progress and seemed to find encouragement. Contest for Chairmanship. The contest between John J. McKelvoy and William B. Brand for the presidency of common council was also aunarent, but in a more subdued manner. Mr. Mc-Kelvey presided at the meeting last night, in the absence of Fresldent Ward. Friends of Mr. McKelvey say he is now In the lead for the contest. They predict that he will have a fine majority when the vote is taken. One of the leading features before the common council last night was an ordinance called up by Mr. Morin, increasing the allowance for the police pension fund from $30 to $."0 per man. Mr. Roenlgk wanted to know if this was necessary to provide proper protection. Superintendent Thomas McQuaide, of the bureau of detectives, who was present, was asked to explain. He said that for the last three years the fund had stood at $122,000, the payments made from it preventing it from growing. If this increase were granted it would be possible to reduce the period of service from 25 to 20 years. "There are men on the force," Superintendent McQuaide said, "who would not retire at 20 years, being physically lit for duty and preferring full pay, but you know a change of administration is coming and some of the old men fear that they will not le retained and they would retire at 20 years." In answer to questions. Superintendent McQuaide said the fund now pays to two men $1,500 a year each. One former lieutenant and eight former patrolmen draw smaller amounts. The reduction in years would have to be made by the pension association and could not be done except by consent of the present pensioners. This consent had been promised. Mr. Brand asked him If it were not a fact that "one high objector" had always stood in the way of this reduction and Mr. McQuaide said it was. This man had promised to acree to the reduction, but he admitted there wan nothing to bind him. Mr. McQuaide agreed with Mr. Brand that it would be well to have the reduction in time specified in the law and Mr. Brand offered an amendment pro viding that the increase should go Into effect when the period of service was reduced from 25 to 20 years by the pension association. Would ChecK Dictation. "I want to fix It," said Mr. Brand, "so that this gentleman pensioner, this high pensioner, can't dictate to all the men on the force." The amendment was adopted and the bill went over for printing. Mr. Porter, from the committee on public works, presented an ordinance authorizing the letting of a contract for incandescent mantle street lamps, for the purchase of 16,000 water meters at $140.0, for the purchase of bulbs, plants and trees for the parks and for repairing tho Diamond market house, all of which were passed. Mr. Brand, from a special committee, presented the ordinance for vacating Twelfth street, from Etna street to th Allegheny river. Director E. M. Bigelow said that the only persons who use the streets are employes of Mackintosh, Hemphill & Co. and the Star Tin Plate Company, who own all the abutting property. They wanted it closed to facilitate; the operations of their plants, and he Inherited Disease Eyes Affected Weak, Could Hardly Walk Life of Suffering. Still Another Great Gure by Hood's Sarsaparilla The following letter is from Sir. Geo. A. Zirkle, School Teacher in Mt. Horeb, Term., well-known all through that county, where he was born and has always lived. " Mt. Horeb, Tenn., Jan. 10, 906. "C. I. Hood Co., Lowell, Mass. "I have suffered all my life, until lately, from inherited scrofula. When a mere babe I had a scrofulous sore back of my ear. At 21 I had 13 scrofulous lumps on my neck. At 37 the disease assumed a new and tantalizing form. My eyes were affected so that I could not read after eunset, and when I closed them it was difficult to reopen them. There was always intolerable itching all over my body. Then a tumor on my neck changed to the front of my neck, suppurated and was followed by others, until 6ix had formed and broken. I became so weak I could scarcely walk, and could hardly attend to my teaching. All the medicine I tried failed to help until I began the use of Hood's Sarsaparilla. In less than three months the sores healed, a troublesome catarrhal ttrint disappeared thought they were important enough to the city to be accommodated. The bill was adopted.

In the public safety ordinance. $3,000 had been added for throe additional tenement house inspectors: $35,000 for an engine house and police station in the Thirty-second ward, ana $5,oX) for the fire apparatus in the Thirty-ninth ward. The bill was. passed. There was some debate on the ordinance for levying taxes and fixing water rents over the charges made in the water schedule. The amended ordinance, however, was passed finally. RAILROAD BRIDGE IS UNDER GUARD. Carnegie Steel Company Takes Precautions Against Interference by Union Workmen. The building of a small steel bridge for the extension of the Union Railroad of the Carnegie Steel Company, to connect with the Wabash, and which will carry the tracks over the Calhoun Park division of the Pittsburgh Railways company at Buttermilk hollow, between the park and Dravosburg, is the cause of some trouble between the Union Railroad company and the members of the Bridge and Structural Iron Workers' union, which has necessitated extra precautions to be taken by the railroad to prevent any interference between the workmen belonging to that union and the men employed in putting up the bridge. The steel In the bridge was made by the Carnegie Steel company and fabricated by the American Bridge company. The strike of the bridge workers' union against the American Bridge company and its boycott against all steel turned out by that company caused the union to take steps to prevent any work being done on the bridge, though they had not been employed on the job and no for extra workmen had been made. When the Union Railroad company began the erection of the bridge, It took a force of its own men to the scene. The bridge workers sent men there to try and prevent the work being done and sought to draw off soma of the non-union the railroad company they sent guards workmen. So soon as tills was learned by to the place and these have instructions to prevent any tresspassing on the railroad company's property. It had been given out that the American Bridge company was Involved in the trouble, but the officers of that company yesterday explained that they had nothing to do with the matter. SUN OF FAVOR SHINES ON "SUN." CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE. In the way of an afternoon newspaper in Pittsburgh. Advertisers are showing their appreciation of "The Sun" with an enthusiasm equal to that of the reading public. It is a. medium through which the people of all classes may b; reached.

Walters, a member of select council, also declared "The Sun" was a great newspaper. "I like its style." he said, "and will certainly continue to read It every day." Another enthusiastic friend of "The Sun" is S. S. Lesslie. "I think it Is the brightest, breeziest and best afternoon paper I have ever read," said Mr. Lesslie.
