CURES BT MIRCALE.
A Pennsylvania Priest Who Can Cure
All the Ills Flesh 'is Heir to by
' ' : ' faith. .
PiTTSBUBtt, Pa., June 12. The, truly
remarkable cures of all ailments the
flesh - is "heir to effected by- the Rev.
Father MQllinger, at the shrine of St.
Anthony on Troy hill,, Allegheny, is at
tracting attention throughout the country.-
Over 1000 invalids from various
parts of the country have arrived in this
city since 'Motiday, and they are coming
by eyerjr train. , Several of the number,
whosie ailments were apparently beyond
all human power to relieve, have' already
been restored to health or greatly . re
lieved.' Today ' Father, MblTinger was
obliged to remove: from the sacristy "of
the little church to the more commod
eoue'school building adjoining. 'At one
'time ver-200iri fvatients vwere 'waiting
tlieir turn to.recexye the venerable, fath
er's blessings and' whatever remedies he
should . apply.' Tv Nexti Saturday ' is St.
Anthony's day and .preparations . are in
progress " for ' the ' ' accommodation' of ' the
thousands"' who" will be presented that
day, on which the, priest's power to heal
is said to- be extraordinarily great, be
cause Anthony is the Saint; fr6rn" whom
he derives that power- .Today two blind
bovs, born blind, aged' 13 and 14 years,
led by the mother and -sister, sons of Mr.
Culbertson;' .wealthy farmer near Hali
fax, Ni S.j arrived from the Norton blind
asylum at Halifax. This evieninga large
number of people, residents of, Nashyille,
Tenn.J arrived accompanied by friends
and hastened to Troy hill: ' The ? scenes
in and about the church, are remarkable,
and. at least .some , of -the cures effected
are' little short "of miraculous.' ' It ,was
discovered today : that : Adolph 1 Hepb,
Father. Motlinger's atnenuanei8 ' ahd.: in
terpreter.; together.' with, his; i brothers,
Frank and John, and Jacob .Hook,: have
for several days been extorting fees from
the rtfflHcted,' representing that they had
great influence with the priest One 'of
the Hepp ; brothers said that by this plan
they secured several hundred dollars -a
week". '" Father " .Mollinger "makes , no
charge ""whatever for bis services.; His
attention Has- been- directed to the ' scan
dal caused, by the actions of these young
men, and it will be. stopped and the par
ticipants made tosuffer. It is stated
this evening that1 Father Mollinger has
has :been'-summoned ' td Rome by the
pope v He leaves on Monday next. The
purpose of the special. call ia not known,

. , r the New Taritr. .
London, June 1 1. The tinplate indus
try in England - is in a state of feverish
activity over the approach of July 1, the
date on which the duty oh the importa
tion of this commodity into the United
States under the ' provisions of the new
tariff law. will go' in to effect. Shipments
from Swansea, Bristol and Liverpool for
the United States have never before been
so : extensive as during the past ' fort
night, and they have been further accel
erated this week. - .Home cargoes aggre
gated over 3000 tons of the metal, and
one cargo was more than 4it00tons. The
stock of tinplate in England has Itecome
much reduced and is expected to be well
nigh r exhausted in another week. The
exports for the current -year to the Uni
ted States up .to Mav 1, are valued at
3,947,588;' against "2,326,667 for the
earne r period in 1890, and about - 2,600.
-000 in 1889. , The- resolutions passed by
the tin-plate, manufacturers -of Wales to
close work, after July 1 will certainly be
carried, notwithstanding that contracts
for; delivery ' during--: July and August
were taken Jast week ti the -very good
price. of 13. 6s per 1kx for .Bessemer
