The religious part of the ceremonies was
In no wise different froni that of thcblcssing

place which this university hold as a
literary ccuterand especially at the Capital
of Uio nation, it was performed by the most
proniineniaud faiuius prelate3of the church

his American delegate and a letter of the
Pope was read by the learned Bishop

The dedication of tins imposing build

and l'resldenl Oilman, of the far-famed

IN BEAUTIFUL ROUES.
The religious character of a part of tbc
ceremonies necessitated the appearance
of the chief dignitaries of the church In
their beautiful robes which thus afforded
an opportunity or witnessing one or tho
most imposing luDctionsln the pomp and
ceremonial 01 the church.
This was particularly observable in the
open-air procession aud the scene In the
sanctuary or the chapel or the school of
Vvitn the exception of Archbishops Ire

Gross.otbavannan, Uearduu, urthel'aciric
coast, Spalding of Peoria, and Marty, or
Bt. Cloud, all the notable prelates ui the
church honored the occasion by their pres
ence. Ihe distinctively religious features of
the event took place In the ebapcl of the
Divinity Hall, on the circular waif, irom
the Divinity school lront eutrance to that
or McMahon Hall, In the portico ol the lat
ter and In its central ball.
At .:!U p. m. his eminence the cardinal,
hus excellency the papal ablegate, the v islt
lns archbishops and bishops, Bishop Keanc,
clergy assembled In and near the sanctuary
ot the ctiapel, which was sortly Illuminated
by the lender glow or the ailar eamlles
by the purple crimson and gold ot their
Sinlirical robes and formed a brilliant and
lposlug group. Tbeie were in this bright
asscmbiuge leu archbishops and bishops,
the cardinal, and Mgr. batolll.
The ceremony here was simply the chant
ing ot the hymn, "Vcnl Creator Spiritus,"
wnicn was sung In mil round chorus by
the priests to the grand swell ot the organ
strains. In the meanwhile the procession
was forming outside, which, when com
pleted, embraced about 4U0persiios.
Its components were first Father Lynch,
ot Alabama, thecross-liearer. He was bare
beaded and was robed in jellowsllk, with
white lace surplice. On either side of him
was a seminarian in black cassock, with
white laci siirpjice, each bearing an uo
lighted caudle in a gold candlestick.
THEN CAME THE CARDINAL.
Immediately after these came tiie semi
narians ot the Holy Cross, the Marlsts, and
the Paullsts. These were arrayed In the
usual black cassock and scholastic cap.
After these the priests and then came a
group of bishops and archbishops. Imme
diately behind the bishops was Cardinal
Gibbons, robed in a magnificent gold em
broidered cape and wearing a gold em
broidered mitre. The cardinal carried the
pastoral staff, or bishop's cruller. He was
attended by Fathers Held and Fleming, of

Tne line was one of singularly pietur
esque asiect, not only from the distinctive
robiug of the individual parts, but from
the artistic blending of the colors. Tho
rare beauty ot the day, the brilliant sun
shine, and the exquisite ti-inixrature con
tributed largely to the general effect and
Impression of the procession.
At precisely fifteen minutes before 3
o'clock the procession moved toward the
south door ol the hall to be dedicated. The
jiorttco was embowered In palms and roses.
When the procession reached the portico
the crops-hearer balled anil perniittedthe

Entering, the cardinal proceeded to a
temporary altar in the center of the hall,
where he performed the ceremony ot
the blcsing and dedication after the form
of the Roman ritual. The Incidents which
addressed themselves to the eje were
the purification of the environment, typi
cally, by holy water aud Incense. Tne
prayers and forms were read In Latin.
Tnis hall was decorated with the United
States flag, which floated everywhere!
In the recess at the north ead of the ball was
the bcautirul marble statue of Leo XII,

papal colors In the recess were also largo
palms and potted plants.

DI0CE8E OF WASHINGTON

Minneapolis, Oct. 1. The preliminaries
or the triennial council of the Protestant
Episcopal Church, which assembles to
morrow for a three weeks' session, were
inaugurated this morning with a meeting
of the Joint committee of bishops, clerics and
laymen appointed by the council of 1692
to revise the constitution and canons of
Tbc report of this body was completed
and distributed to the delegates several
months ago, but some of Jts features, es
pecially those dealing with matters In
which the laity are directly concerned,
have arouted so much hostility and ad
verse criticism that It Is possible some rad
ical changes may bo made before the re
port is presented to thecouncll.

were present In force. Published re
ports to the effect that among the new
recommendations would be one changing
the name of the denomination were charac
terized as "unqualifiedly false."
DIOCESE OF WASHINGTON,,
Another Important question which will
come before the convention Is the division
of the diocese or Maryland in order to create
a new diocese with Washington as the
It Is believed that the expressed desire
or the Maryland diocese that this be done
will be ratified. Naturally much gossip
is afloat as to the (election of a bishop
for this post.
Inasmuch as the establishment of an
Episcopal see nt Washington will partake
largely of a nature otan official representa
tion at the seat of government, the office
will be an important one. BishoD Paret
teems to be the conceded choice.
Many or the bishops will be missed from
the present council. Bishop Wlliams, ot
Connecticut, who, by virtue of seniority,
would have presided over the house of
bishops, Is too feeble to make the trip, al
though he was tendered the use of J. Pier
pont Morgan's private car all the way from
Hartford to this city.
MANY BISHOPS ILL.
The next in authority. Bishop Clark, of
Rhode Island, Is similarly circumstanced
and so the bishops will have as presiding
officer their brother Whipple, of this
Bishop Wilmer, of Alabama, telegraphs
that the weightof j earsprevents him making
the journey and Bishop Thompson, of Mis
sissippi, will be also absent.
The trains this morning were crowded
with delegates, some of the roads being
compelled to run two and three sections.
Rev. Dr. Morgan DIx and Dr.Hof fman, both
of New York, I ho latter: being deau ot the
of California; Bishop Grafton, of Wisconsin;
Rev. Dr. Samuel Hart, ot Hartford, and Dr.
John Pulton, of Philadelphia, editor ot the
Church Standard, which has violently op
posed tho newcanons and constitutions, were
prominent among tbc arrivals.

His offense is that on Thursday last

knew Truman througli religious work
and sat down beside bini.
After exchanging a few words about
Durraut, McCoy said to Truman: "It
vou don't hang him, we wlllhang you."
Truman did not take McCoy's remarks
serltuisly, but in viewer the court's ad moni
tion that Jurymen should not permit any
one to speak to them about the case, lie
reported the threat to Judge Murphy. The
Judge brought the matter up this morning
and alter hearing Truman's statement
under oath, ordered the citation ror Mc
Coy, returnable Thursday at noon.
He said that McCoy was an Intelligent
man and he was not Inclined to show him
any leniency. MqCoy's words are by many
taken seriously as there is a strung let ling
against Durrantnnd a movement to lynch
him In case of even a disagreement by the

men were engaged on various tasks through
out the shop.
HEARD HIS CRY.
Suddenly the men in the room heard an
agonized cry, and on looking up were
horror stricken to see tbc apparently lifeless
body of Emmon3 being carried to and fro,
limp nnd helpless, on yie gun carriage.
Huge splotches of blood on the standpost
and on one end of the carriage showed
wherethc drcarul Impact bad been roado.
Tbecarriage was covered with blood,
and the crimson fluid was spurting from
both sides ol the head.
As quickly as possible the machinery
In the shop was brought to a standstill,
ind the mangled body or Emmons was
taken from its perbons position. He was
still breathing and his rellow-workmcu hur
ried bim ofr to-the Navy Yard dispensary.
It was found, however, tliat no physician
was in atlenJr-ace there, and It was nec
essary to send to the Arsenal for medical
CARRIED TO HIS HOME.
In the meantime the patrol wagon from
the Fifth precinct had been summoned nnd
after a preliminary dressing Emmons was
conveyed to bis home, No. 1019 G street
southeast. Drs. Kerr and Parker were sum
moned and performed a slight operation,
lifting the bones ot the skull from the brain
and applied dressings to the bead. Ttey
announced last night that If he lived until
this morning t they would undertake the
operation or trephining.
Emmons is twenty seven years old, nnd
has a wife and two children. He learned
his trade at the navy yard and has been
employed there the greater part othis time
since. Although of a very strong con
stitution it is not thought possible that he
can survive his injuries.

ON ACCOUNT OF INDIAN3
Hi Claims There) nave Been Gross
Irrognlaritles.lii tho Admlnlstra
Hon uf Indian Affairs by Govern
meiit Officials Ho Wants tb.9
Clmrcli to Enter Politico. "
An important programme and policy are)
to be discussed to-lay in secret conclave
by the Catholic archbishoiw of the Unitec!
States. The plan involves the arraignment
of Hon. Hoke Smith, Secretary of the In
terior, for unjust discrimination in tha
administration or Indian affairs; and there,
is great possibility that the motives and
forces of a new political agency nro
about to be ct working.
The story is long aud the grievances
are ancient. Mgr. Stephau is the prime
mover and advocate ot tlie new policy.
As lie was only recently (April 2, 1895,)
created a monslgnor, or chamberlain of
the Poiic's household, it is within bounds
to assume that his projects have tha
sanction of Rome ancUof the authorities
of the Propaganda Fide. M;;r. Stcphan
denies that he is acting under papal au
thority, but It Is very probable that,
during his recent visit to Rome, he sought
advice upon the momentous projntuon
laid before tho American hierarchy. Ha
"I am now in politics. I am in it to
win, and want everybody to know it."
Mgr. Stcphan is the head of the bureau of
Catholic Indian missions. His urgent ap
peals and strong efforts before Congress
and departments in behalf of his charges
are generally known, but never before has
be been so in earnest.
BECAUSE THEY'RE CATHOLICS.
The matters upon which he now seeks
adviccand assistance are many, batthepar
ticular Item of Injury that ba alleges is
that over 200 Indians ot the Ncz Pcrcetrlbe
have been deprived ot their allotments
"olely because they were Catholics and
members of one of the bureau missions.
On May 8, 1895, he addressed a letter
to President Cleveland, In which he de
tailed various alleged outragi-s on thes
200 Indians and asserted boldly that
they had been deprived of their tribal
allotments under the recent act3 of Con
gress concerning Indian reservations, and
insisted that the only reason why these
IndlanswsM turned adrift homeless and
uiiprnjBPror was" that they were Catho
llcsjBKsald that Miss Alice Fletcher,
tbc speiial agent in charge of this work,
had deliberately set aside thetlalais of
the Indians under the care of bis bureau,
and that, as a consequence, they were des
titute and a cbarc on his already over
taxed resources. He pointed out the in
justice of this, as the only funds of this
institution available Jor their education
and subsistence were the gifts of private
charitable persons interested in this work.
Mgr. Sti-phan supported his claims, not
only by theresults of nis own investigations,
but with a mass of documentary evidence.
aud he called particular atieation to page
1139, Ex. Doc. 1, part S, Fifty-secoLd
Congress, the report of the Commissioner
ot Indian Affairs, in which the following
language taken from the report ot the Pres
byterian foreign mission board, occurs
"The past year has teen signalized by
valuableservlee3 rendered to thcNez rerces
and to the mission by Miss Algice Fletcher,
agent of the government for the distribu
tion ot land in severalty to the Nez Perce
Indians. She has been Instrumental in
securing valuable allotments of land for
twoor threeof t'lemost lmportantcburcbes,
and Is still using her intluence for the per
manent establishment ot t -e Lapwaichurch
"Miss Fletcher havius spent several ot
having become thoroughly acquainted with
its work, its methods, and its results has
rendered a kindly service to our faithful
missionaries in commendUig them to the
fuller confidence and sympathy of tbe
Christian women interested in the Woman's
North Pacific Presbyterian board ot mis
sions." AGAINST FAVORITISM.
Mgr. Stephan urged on tbe President
that the duty of this official was to allot
lands to all the Indians and not to look
out fhr the interests of "two or three ot
the principal churches or to use influence
In their behalf." He further stated that
she had gone further and discriminated
against the devotees ot other religions.
The matter was old, a rcjle of Commis
sioner Morgan's administration, but be
had been uuable to obtain redros for the
Indians be represented, who. without the
aid of the Bureau, would lie destitute.
President Cleveland replied the next
day in a lengthy and courteous note,
and expressed his surprise at the condi
tions alleged, and promising immediate
Investigation and such action as the facta
ascertained would warrant.
Nothing more was beard of the matter
until July 1-, last, when Mgr. Stephan
who seemed Inclined to take the appeal
to the President in the light of a personal
affront. He characterized It as a piece
with many other groundless charges filed
against him. staled that be bad hitherto
twice caused the statements concerning a
religious discrimination against tbls band
or Nez Perces" to be carerully Investigated
and found nothing in them to warrant
official interference with Miss Fletcher's
course and decisionsin the matter.
The letter-was couched In terms Indi
eating personal Indignation and assumed
the responsibility for all acts of his sub
ordinates in the matter, which he iuti
mated had received approval.
Previous to the reception of Secretary
I Smith's letter, Mgr. Stephan bad been
personally very IrlcnJly disposed to this
administration, l-t therealtcr bis attitude
changed and be has been preparing hiea
selr ror war.
EVIDENCE OF DISCRIMINATION.
He has collated an immense amount or
data, and says he is prepared to show
that while Catholic charities have ex
pirdcd a larger amount or money than
all the other denominations, there has been
a systematic erfort to mlidmizo the amount
of government aid afforded their institu
tions or the Indians under their charge.
One of the principal items is the ullega.
Hon that had It tot-been for Uio munifi
cence of Miss Drexcl the Catliolic Indian
schools ol the bureau would long since
have been closed, because the same malign
influence that defrauds these two hun
dred Nez Pcrces Indians or their land
lias persistently closed the govcri ment
purse to the Catliolic contract schools.
Each year the nllov.-anccs liave been re
deced and the necessities for funds have
Mgr. Stephan asserts that the time has
come for organized effort. The votes of
the minions of Catholics must be put as
a bar against this steady and insidious
encroachment. He says organized attack
must be met by serried defense, and tho
sympathies of all broad-miuded Ameri
cans enllned against the active and
ceaseless efforts ot a coterie or bigots.
