E&HE DIVISIOKS BADLY MIXED
-Joseph Bosinski, Chief Marshal of yes
terday morniuz's St. Acnes parade, had one
1 ot those difficult matters to adjust which
ccur in the lite of every great military
'chieltain, from Scipio Africanus to Secre
tary Thompson, formerly of the United
States Ifavy. The question ot precedence
arose. There were three bodies, and each
'claimed the right of the line, and proposed
to fight it out on that line if it took until
New Year's. The uuhoppy result was that
three parades in place of one followed what
ihylocl called the "wry necked fifes,"
although modern fifes do not seem to get it
in the neck that way.
The question opened between the Board of
.Erin and the American Board of the A. 0.
IH., and each urged its claims to precedence,
the jne on score of seniority, and the other
on a purely patriotic basis. Both organi
zations have companies of Hibernian Bifles
attached so that the military etiquette of
giving armed bodies the right of the line in
procession was set at naught, and Marshal
Hosinski, who, as a Pole, was certainly im
partial, at one time gave the advance to one
organization and then to the other.
This made an attraction on Grant street

The Board of Erin contingent, like the
ho v in the class in which there were only
two, still stayed at the head, and marched
out Filth avenue, coming in first on the
church ground, and capturing the position
of honor by a short cut. The following was
the order of procession:

The second division, under Marshal Mc
Gnire, having lost ii head, and in fact not
understanding the tale, became somewhat
demoralized, and concluded that the inde
pendent and soldierly course would be to
make its own parade, which it did, being
between the two fires. It was headed by
the Cathedral Band of 34 pieces, with the
St. Agnes E. B. A. Society ot 100 men, in
command o John Boyle.
CABLE CABS DELATED.
This skirmish drill, which was not con

whole procession pass, surprising other! who
did not expect to see any procession, and
delaying the proceedings at the church for
nearly an hour to the great discomfiture of

laity who i simply spectators.
Mr. Joseph Bo .inski.Chief Marshal of the
St Agnes' parade, was seen yesterday abont
the disturbance which occurred between the
two factions of the Hibernians. He
"I was elected to the office of Grand Mar
shal of the parade. I assigned the Ameri

McKnight waited on me and asked me to

Immediately Major Coyne, of the Ameri
can Board, called upon me and requested
me to change the order to its original
shape. I acceded to the Major's request,
and no further alteration was made in the
orders. This caused the rumpus.
"Tell the Pittsburg public that I am a
Pole, and that I think the way the societies
fi,eht among themselves is disgraceful.
They belong to one creed and one nation
and ought to agree."
Colonel Felix McKnitrht, who commanded
the Board ol Erin, A. O. H. rifles, was seen
- at his residence on Second avenue last night.
In giving his account of the affair to a DIS
PATCH reporter, he said:
"We were first given the right of line by
Chief Marshal Eosinski several weeks ago.
Upon pirking tip a paper this morning I
noticed that the American Board had been
given the position of honor, and were to
march in front of us. I said nothing to my
men, who were lurions, but marched them
into the city with the intention of asserting
mv rights. I rode up to the chief Marshal,
et the Court House, and asked him if he
had issued the countermanding order plac
ing us behind the seceders. Mr. Bosinski
told me that he had not issued the order, and
ordered me to take the position be had
originally assigned the Board of Erin. I
was then determined to have the place that
rightfully belonged to me, and commuui
cated tnis.to my command. I had about 300
men out, and they were prepared not to be
forced into a back scat

wheeled my men into "position at the corner

formed on Grant street, right resting on
Fifth avenue, and marched up the latter

met Major Coyne at the head of the
American Board. His command was pre
ceded by the Montooth Band, and they had
been ordered to march into line ahead of us.
WOULD DIE FIKST.
"When they attempted to cross our line I
rode up to Major Coyne, aud pulling my
sworn, said: 'Von can't go ahead here. This
is our position, and I'll die right here
before I'll let you ahead.' Edward Moran,
the Captain of Company A ol the Ameri
can Board, came rushing np and tried to
swing his men into our line. I shouted to
him, I dare you to cross. If you do, it will
be at your peril.' My men did not need to
be rallied, and were prepared to stand by
their Colonel. In brandishing my sword I
bent it on my hone while urging him for
ward. There nrai no time to lose, and I
't-diisbed Jntn the invaders. The band scat
tered, and I steadied my men. The other

MAI YET PAY 80 PER CEKT.
President Sort, of the F. fc M. Bank, Holds
Oat Hope lor Depositors Stockholders
Mut Whack Dp.
The assignees of the defunct Farmers and
Mechanics' Bank, on the Southside, will
begin to-day to pay the first installment of
the final assets to the depositors. The divi
dend to be paid amounts to 26 per cent ot
the, entire assets, or a little over $86,000.
The assignees will be located in Odd
Fellows' Hall at 9 o'clock this morning,
and they will meet there every day until all
of the depositors receive their money.
There are 9S9 checks to be paid out, and
it is expected that the work will consume
two or three days. The assignees have
made preparations for a big rush. The
checks have all been filled out, and the re
ceipts are ready to be signed. The work
has been arranged so that while one man is
having the receipts signed another will
hand out the checks. The ordinary depos
itors will not be required to present their
bank books, but holders of cashier's checks,
drafts and certificates of deposit will be ex
pected to present them.
President Sorg was seen at his residence
about the matter yesterday. He said: "We
compared our check book on Saturday with
the auditor's report id the Prothocotary's
office, to satisfy ourselves that everything
was all right. Our money is in the First
National Bank, of Birmingham, where the
people will get their checks cashed."
"What have you to say about the report
that some of the accounts have been pur
chased at a large discount," was asked.
"That is false so far as I know. There
are abont & dozen small accounts that have
been assigned to other persons, but they
were mostly assigned as collateral for

"I know nothing of any such an offer. I
have had two accounts assigned to me, but I
did not buy them. I had two accounts in
the bank as trustee; one for the Birming
ham Turners and the other for a widow.
They amounted to $500 and $300 respectively.

"What will be the next move alter, the
present distribution is made?"
"We will go ahead with the work. We

land, real estate and mortgages, on which we
expect to realize enough to make another

"Oh, no. Our capital stock was 5180,000.
After we pay the next installment we will
collect what we can irom our stockholders.
If we can collect from all of them, we ought
to pay dollar for dollar. I count on col
lecting at least 5100,000 from them. This
will enable us to pay about 80 per cent, and
this is what I predicted we would do when
the bank closed."
The depositors are very jubilant over the
prospects ot getting their money to-dav,
which will come well in hand as Christmas
cash in many a household.
M'DOWELL COMES BACK
In a Vigorous Delenie of Hl Plan to Hare
a Patrol Boat.
Coroner McDowell said yesterday:
"There has been another drowning case to
day down at Chartiers. Within the last
two weeks that puts ten men in the rivers,
and still, when I propose some means of re
storing the dead to their families by making
a provision for a patrol and fireboat, there
are found objectors." If a relative of Mr.
Carnegie or of some other citizen who could
afford to make an individual search, were
drowned, there would not' be boats or drag
nets enough in the river to prosecute it
Grapnels would be at a premium, and the
census taker in his next rounds would find
more divers on record than, placed end to
end with their helmets on, would stretch
from the Tenth street bridge to the Point
But the bodies in the river now are those of
working people, and although a boat might
also recoveF the missing millionaire, it is
not wanted apparently.
"That it would not be of much value in
case of fire is urged, with a good mjny false
premises, but in the case of fire, which is re
garded as the greater loss, life or property?
Yet boats overturn almost daily in the
rivers during the summer months, and men
are lost Irom tow9 during high water, in
each ot which cases a boat ot light draught
patroling the river would have an oppor
tunity to save life. I don't care about the
method pursued, but would object to having
the boat mounted on turtles' backs as a
means of transit when the Government dam
wickets are down, or a tortoise-like method
of adopting what other cities have long de
rived the advantages from.'.'
THE DETAILS TOO FIXE.
Major Dennistoa Pokes Sarcasm at a South
Major J. F. Denniston said yesterday that
if there was anything he did enjoy it was
to read stories of soldiers who could recol
lect every movement they made while in a
hand-to-hand fight It was comlorting to
see, by the telegraphic news yesterday
morning, that a Southern lieutenant not
alone did honor to the tenacity of a Union
color-bearer, but could also remember that
he had individually put 9 bullet holes
out of 13 in the colors defended by the gal
lant standard bearer of the Eighth New
Yorks. There was one little discrepancy in
the account, though, he said.
The Eighth New Yorks did not belong to
Sickles' brigade, in which the Major had
himself served. The brigade was comprised
or the Seventieth to the Seventy-fourth
New York Regiments inclusive, afterward
augmented by the assignment of the One
Hundred and Twentieth New Yorks. It
was just possible that the story might be a
good story and nothing more. "

HO MONEY LYING AROUKD LOOSE,
There let Eemains 250,000 for Distribu
tion in the State,
FINAL MEETING OP THE COMMISSION
James B. Scott, of the State Belief Com
mission, which was formed for the purpose
of distributing the money contributed by
the general public immediately after the
Johnstown flood, is considerably exercised
over the statement made by Colonel Elliott
F. Shepard, of the New York Mail and Ex
prut, to the effect that there -re still 52.
000,000 of the relief fund remi..jing undis
tributed in the various banks ail dVer the
State.. Mr. Scott was seen by a Dispatch
reporter last night, and when asked what
he had to say in regard to Colonel Shep
ard's charge, he replied:
"I really do not know what to make ot
Colonel Shepard's very remarkable letter.
It is not a criticism of the work or methods
of the Commission, but a point blank charge
that we have, to say the least been negli
gent in our duties. I am inclined to look
at the matter in a different light When
the letter was first brought to my attention
I thought tjiat it was a forgery, perpetrated
for some reason unknown to me. If the
letter is genuine, tbe Colonel may have
made a mistake in his tenses, and said 'is to
be distributed' instead of 'was distributed.'
Or he may have been misinformed, though
just why a man in Colonel Shepard's posi
tion should write such a letter before
making thorough inquiries, passes my com
prehension. NEW TOEEEES' MISTAKES.
During the whole time of the excitement
at Johnstown, and even after, there were
several New Yorkers, bright, intelligent
men, by the way, who kept what they called
a pretty close watch for cases of destitu
tion which might be missed by the Com
mission. Tbey found several cases, but in
vestigation showed that each and every one
of these cases had received relief in. the
shape of cash, bat the money was spent for
"I have no wish to criticise Colonel Shep
ard's action in giving 55,000 to Eev. Dr.
Beale, because I do not know exactly the
nature of what is called the Mail and Ex
prut fund, or under what condition it was
put in Colonel Shepard's care. The money
may have been given him for the
purpose of aiding and rewarding
Protestant ministers, or it distribution
may have been left entirely to his own dis
cretion. In either case, 1 hare no desire to
object to his disposal of it, merely saying
that every minister who- was lelt alive by
the flood did good work. Several were
drowned, but tbe remainder worked like
beavers. Then again, Colonel Shepard is a
man of large wealth, and if he wishes to
make Dr. Beale a present of 55,000 it is the
business of no one but the Colonel and the
A FALSE STATEMENT.
"But this is getting away from the most
important part of the letter. If the Com
mission has 52,000,000 lying in the banks it
is to the public's interest to know the fact
However, you can say that there is not any
thing near that amount still undistributed.
There were over 6,000 applicants for relief
in tne conemauga aisincb uiuut:, uuu nut
more than 35 or 36 were refused. So you can
see that anv such statement as Colonel Shep
ard makes is preposterous. As to there being
any unrelieved cases of destitution still in
the Conemaugh Valley, I will say that I do
not know of one. There are people there
without money, probably, but it is their
own fanlt The Commission was organized
to give relief, not to support those too lazy
"The Commission distributed 5400.000 on
the first appropriation, and 51,000,000 on the
second, makine 52,000,000 distributed. There
are between 5200,000 and $250,000 still un
distributed, but this money cannot go to the
Conemaugh Valley exclusively. It must go
all over the State wherever the flood did
damace. You know that the loss of prop
erty in the eastern part of the State was far
greater than in the western. It was the ap
palling loss of lire at Johnstown and
vicinity that drew all eyes in that
Mr. Scott also said that the Commission
would hold a meeting shortly and make
final arrangements. After the remaining
money is distributed, and reports published,
the Commission will be disbanded.

Alderman Cassidy was seen last night,
and asked ir he knew tbat the disorderly
houses of the First ward were in full opera
tion, as shown by the investigations of the
police and others. He replied that he had
some knowledge of the matter, and intended
to send a man around to investigate. He
did not know when tb is would be done, but
at the proper time. He said that great good
had been effected by his order closing those
places, as tbe complaints of respectable
people of the ward of insults from corner
loafers and disreputable people had ceased.
He also thought that the quieter class of
those places might be tolerated, but that the
others would have to go.
In reply to the question why he had, in
view of this plan of the purifying process,
issued the order in the first place, he said,
"It was my salvation." He emphatically
contradicted a reported rumor that he had
written letters permitting those places to

Mrs. Kolson yesterday, to obtain from her
some further particulars concerning her re

"In spite of some criticism which has ap

to be Emin Bey's aunt, the fact of our rela
tionship nevertheless remains substantially
as I gave it The day that Joseph (Emin)
was born I remember very well. I had only
one brother, and the first child that was
born to him was an event in our family.
Joe was born in Salmon Strasse, Cologne,
When he was a month old he was taken to
Cologne Cathedral and baptized. His mother
was Elizabeth Berg.of Meckenbeim, Prussia.
"The Dispatch printed, the real name
of Emin Bey correctly. It Is Joseph
Schnitzler, and not Edward Schnitzer.
That my nephew is the renowned Emin
Pasha, I have the most absolute nrof. I
left my ;native city, Cologne, when Joe was
3 years old. For some years after leaving
Germany I lost track of him, but I received
news of him in an indirect way. Whearay
friend, Mrs. Giflel, went over to Germany
six years ago Bhe visited my
brother, Joseph Schnitzler, who was
out or business, and had a long
interview with him. The conversation
turned upon the1 peculiarities of his son Joe

opened an office in Cologne, gave it up, and
then left the country for Constantinople,
where subsequently he joined the Turkish
army, won fame, received promotion, and
afterward left Constantinople for AiricB,
where his exploits have been the admiration
of the world.
"I left Germany over 36 years ago. At

the same impulses for travel and science, or
that a man named Schnitzer was born about
this time, and won fame through the same

relationship to Emin, and ail I ask Of the
critics is to disprove my claim by proving
beyond the possibility of a doubt that such
a person ever existed as Edward Schnitzer.

A Disturber of tbo Temperance meetings
Comes to Griet.
Last evening one of the most successful
meetings of the W. C. T. TJ. ever held in
Moorhead's Hall, took place. The rough
elements were present, as on the previous
Sunday night, but four rows oi brass but
tons and a pair of shields, propped up by
two stalwart members of Chief Brown's
"Finest" took all the poetry out of the dis
turbing element, and gave tbe choir, under
the direction of Mrs. Soeed, a chance, of
which it availed itself gallantly.
Mrs. Jones made a most impassioned ad
dress, to which a number of responses were
made in the shape of signed pledges, and a
number of rambling talks were given by
volunteers from the audience, of which the
earnestness excused the incoherency. To
ward the close of the meeting several of the
Bedford avenue and Washington street
gangs, who bad been noted by the police
among the audience, arose and walked out,
and Officer Joseph Vetter, smelling a large
sized rodent, quietly left the other officer in
charge of the door and slipped down the
He was not disappointed, for within five
minutes after he had taken a strategic posi
tion on the left flank of the enemy a beer
keg came crashing through the door. No
sooner were hostilities opened by this bomb
shell thrown into tbe temperance lines than
the officer was after thn Gambrinus artiller

enemy was captured in an alley near the
corner of Second and Grant and registered
at the Central station as John O'Hern, 23

Mrs. Jones, with the same coolness, ex
hibited on the previous Sunday evening,
when -she escorted a half-drunken coward
through the crowd of ronghs on the street,
proceeded to announce that on New Year's
night the Union would celebrate its fourth
anniversary, on the first meeting of which
there were 17 attendants who had to wade to
the hall up to their knees in snow, and con
gratulated all present on the good work ac
complished, while inviting them to be pres

CITIZENS WILL MEET
To Arouse the State Board of Health
Agalsst the Schindory.
THE LAW AGAJNST NUISANCES.
Tha Southside Medical Society May Take
Up the Hatter.
WHAT DOCTOR BER8MAN HAS TO SAY
The next move en the Southside against
the Beck's rnu scbindery is a proposed
public meeting of citizens for the purpose of
laying the matter formally before the State
Board of Health. The people have con
cluded that the schlndery is a nuisance;
that it is a source of disease, and that it
ought to be removed. The committee repre
senting City Councils, to which the matter
was referred, will attend to its duties and
make an investigation this week, but it is
generally accepted that the city has no juris
diction In the case.
, As soon as the committee goes as far as
they can, and perform all they can do in the
matter, the citizens will then take np the
fight, and lay their complaint before Secre
tary Lee, of the State Board of Health.
There are many reasons why the. Southside
would be the healthiest portion of the city,
if they had a pure water supply, and the
publio spirit in the citizens is beginning to
assert itself to Buch an extent that no hin
drance to the publio health or publio good
will hereafter be allowed to survive.
LOOKING FOE AS ACT.
It is stated by some who seem to be keep
ing posted on the matter that there is an
act of Assembly prohibiting a schindery or
any similar establishment from locating
within seven miles of any influent pipe of a
water works by which the citizens of a city
or town are supplied with water. If such
an act is in existence it will be an easy
nfatter to have the Beck's run schindery
removed, as it is less than two miles away
from the Monongahela Water Company's
influent pipes, and Beck's run, which is
said to be constantly contaminated
by organic matter from the establish
ment empties into the river within
a mile of the pipes. An effort was made to
unearth the law referred to, but as yet no
such an act has been found. There Is plenty
of law against nuisances. If the city can
prove that the schindery is a nuisance the
proprietors, when found guilty, are liable to
a fine or imprisonment or both, according to
the discretion of the Court, under the cir
cumstances of the case, and where the nuis
ance is in existence at the time of the con
viction the Court may direct the defendant
or the Sberift to abate the same at the ex
pense of the defendant
DOCTOBS STIRRED VP.
The Southside physicians will probably
discuss the matter at the meeting of their
medical society. The doctors, at least the
majority ot them, are very loud in their
condemnation of the schindery and are
willing to lend their aid to have it
abolished. Dr. Hersman, Secretary of the
Bouthside Medical Society, said last even
ing: "It ought to be removed. The people
along Beck's run have often told me that
the odor arising from the place is at times
almost unbearable, and there Is more
typhoid fever along that hollow than in
any other section of the city. Besides the
Monongahela river would feed us with
enough filth, without the schindery. Every
thing coming from that place, if it does
not become completely oxidized before it
reaches the pipes, i3 injurious. Animal
matter is purified by oxidation if it floats
far enough, but the theory of self purifica
tion cannot always be relied upon, and the
material is more, or less dangerous until it is
"What proportion, or what kind of or
ganic matter undergoes a change by being
exposed to light and air?"
"It is not known exactly. It was atone
time a generally accepted theory that water,
polluted by sewage, purified itself in 13
miles, but recent observations have upset
this idea. Of course, some of the
poisons may be precipitated to the
body and some to the sides of the rivers. A
portion probably forms a chemical combi
nation with other suspended matter and
changed into compounds that might be
volatile and pass into air, or they might
form in soluble precipitants, and the farther
it rnnsthe more diluted it becomes, which
makes it less perceptible. It is hard to tell
how many diseases may be affected and
materially aided by the organic matter from
the Beck's rnn schindery, but I am satis
fied that typhoid fever is intensified by it
THREE RAIDS IK ONE DAT.
Tbe Police on Fenn Avenue Make It Lively
About 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon,
Lieutenant George W. Boyd, of the Penn
avenue district, assisted by other officers,
raided the speak-easy of John Dnscoll on
Penn avenue, near Twenty-seventh street
When the officers visited the place the house
was crowded, and many of the inmates tried
to make their escape by jumping through
windows, etc., but tbey were unsuccessful,
as the police were on the alert Seventeen
visitors and the proprietor were arrested and
placed in the Twelfth ward lockup. A
number of the prisoners were fortunate
enough to have $10 about them, and thus
got out on a forfeit
Shortly after the above raid Officer Miller
made a descent on the house of Mary Welsh
on Jones avenue. The proprietress and
three visitors were arrested and locked up
for a hearing.
The bouse of Hattie Clark, colored, was
raided about midnight Saturday, and the
proprietress and three other persons ar
rested. The raid was made on the complaint
ot Frank Henry, who alleged that Miss
Clark had inveigled bim into a dark alley,
weut through his pockets and robbed him
of $3 75.
At the hearing before Magistrate Gripp
yesterday morning the woman was re
manded, and informations will be entered
against her by the police officials. Two col-,
ored women and a white man arrested in
her house, who gave the names Mamie
Anderson. Mamie Wrirht and Ben Brown.
"were sentenced to 30 days to the workhouse.
Tbe Revolver and the Woman Were Both
Let Off Yesterday.
Mrs. M. F. Bedpath fired a couple of
shots yesterday morning about 2 o'clock to
attract the attention of an officer on Din
widdle street Officer Connors ran to the
place, and found Mrs. Bedpath lying on
the pavement She said her bnsband had
kicked her ont, and she fired the revolver to
attract the officers. The officer arrested
both, and at the bearing it developed that
'Bedpath was her second husband.
Her son, B. Weaver, testified tbat Bed

SHE CAUGHT IIS,
A Determined Girl Who Woolda't be Jilted
Chattel; Her Kecrcaat Lover to Brad
ford. Inspector McAleese, of the First police
district, received a letter last night from a
woman whom he says is deserving of great
credit for asserting the rights of her sex to a
fulfillment of the pledges made by suitors.
He said that she came to Pittsburg as Miss
Ida Henry, of Fmdlay, some six weeks ago
In search of James Fennessy, whose people
are highly respected residents of a borough
within 16 miles of Pittsburg, and who is
himself a glassblower. The names are fic
titious, as a. wedding has since obliterated
all the enmity in the case, and the Inspector
is particulary averse to creating family dis
turbances. She was a handsome, well-built girl of
abont 20 years of age, and when she called
upon the Inspector first for information
regarding her recreant lovera pair of deep,
blue eyes snapped with fire, and her voice
as clear as a bell, showed a determination
to catch np with the iugitive. "I'll find
him," said she, "if it takes up my whole
life to do so."
"You will indeed," responded the Inspec
tor, as he mentally congratulated himself
upon not being the object of so determined
a chase. She related her tale, saying she
bad first met Fennessy in a large boarding
house in Findlay, where she was engaged
in washing dishes. Her account showed
tbat several of the young men boarding in
the establishment, were suitors for her
handbnt she listened with favor to none
nntilTennessy volunteered to assist, her in
washing dishes. The warmth of the water
in which their hands met in the exercise of
the mutnal work, made both their hearts as
soft as the dishrags with which the dishes
were wiped, and the old, old story was told
The Inspector was at a loss what to do,
but entertained the young woman with
some good advice, during which she gritted
her teeth, and said if Mr. Fennessy did not
employ tbe services of a minister on snort
notice after she found him, there would be
work lor someone, but whether the police or
the Coroner she left to be inferred. She
stayed for a few nights in a woman's tempo
rary home, in which she said there were
neither bedclothes sufficient 'to keep her
warm, nor lights with which to dress herself
in the morning at the hour she was- com
pelled to rise. She had been recommended
to this place by Superintendent M. J. Dean,
of the Anti-Cruelty Society. Tiring of this
sort of hospitality she abandoned her search
on the Southside where she heard the young
man worked at Chambers & McKee's glass
house, and under Inspector McAleese's ad
vice searched Braddock, McKeesport and
several other surroundings towns with no
In the meantime the Inspector had. re
ceived an intimation that the much-wanted
young man was at Bradford, and when
the girl returned, told her that the oil
regions would be a good place to prospect
Without a cent in her pocket, but with a
telegraphic introduction to the Bradford
Chief of Police, she started, and her letter
to the Inspector announces her wedding last
week, saying she could not find a priest to
perform the ceremony, but did find a minis
ter, was now a lawful wife-, and emphasized
the statement by signing her same "Mrs.
"I'll bet," said the Inspector, in conclud
ing his story, "that she will make him a
good wife aud makea man of him. . She has
grit and good common sense, and 'if more
girls in her position would act as she did
we would have fewer cases of a certain class
than we have to deal with now."

ST. AG5ES DEDICATED. '-
Xfetker Ceckraa's Kw Chares Btssse'd by
tbe Bhbo-stev. Father Sfceedy B
feade ike Faith.
St Agnes' Catholio Church was dedicated
yesterday in Soho. A large crowd filled the
sacred edifice, and many were turned away,
A procession of priests and altar boys was
formed at the home of Father CochraD, and
they marched to the church. They circled
tbe walls on the outside, as well as in the
edifice, and Bishop Phelan blessed them.
Father Cochran celebrated high mass af
ter the dedicatory services were performed.
He was assisted by Fathers Murphy, Tobin,
Gallagher and others. Tne sermon was
preached by Eev. Father BheeJy. He took
for his text the words ''Wisdom has built
for herself a house." He congratulated the
people oa their fine church property, and
said he was glad to be present to share in
their joy and success.
After dwelling on the foundation Of the
Church he referred to the attacks being
made on Catholicism by ministers of this
city. He said:
"And now tbat we have seen how the
Divine Builder established His church, let
us hurriedly glance at some of its more
striking features which impress themselves
even upon the minds of those who look with
suspicion upon her. Among the first im
pressions made upon such minds is this:
that she has had a most singular history;
that while the world and all that it contains
grows old, she is ever young; she is ever
patting forth the most marvelous signs of
youthful vigor. Man and his works every
where perish, but she alone is undying.
Thrones are overturned, dynasties change,
States live and die, and then are only a
matter tor history. 'She alone lives on
without the slightest symptoms of feeble
ness or decay. Her growth today in the
closing years of this nineteenth century is
more marvelous than at any other period in
her history. Amidst the never ceasing change
and transformation going on around, she
alone abides. Her enemies are frightened
at tbe sight of her and have no better mode
ot warfare against her than blackening her
with slanders. Instead of injsriog her or
retarding her progress it only adds to her
strength, and hastens hs: advance. There
she stands like the city on the mountain top
that cannot be hid.
"Wonder not that we rejoice in oar Cath
olic faith, and are glad when we daily see
evidences ot the growth of the church In
this land. We rejoice not 'as those who re
joice in the harvest, or as the conquerors re
joice when they divide the spoilfbut we
rejoice rather as the priests of old did when
they carried into battle 'the ark of tbe
Lord.' We reioice as those who love men's
soals so well that thev would go through
much to save them. We rejoice because we
know what blessings, spiritual and temporal,
our Catholic faith can bring to this land
and the people so dear to us.
St Agnes' Churob was started in 1870,
bnt was never completed until recently. It
is a frame structure, beautifully finished
with hard wood inside. The furnishings of
the church are on a magnificent scale, the
organ alone costing $6,000. The church's
membership is abont 2,760, and the parochial
school attendance is 800 pupils daily. Eev.

WAS GOWEN MURDERED?
His Consln. Major Miller, of Allegheny)
Believes He Was.
MaJorCH. Miller, of 79 Page street,
Allegheny, is a fall cousin of Franklin B.
Gowen. Mr. Miller said last night tbat he
bad heard nothing further from Washington
about the death of his cousin except what
had been furnished in the telegraphic dis
patches. From the position of the body
when found, with the head under the table,
he was convinced that Mr. Gowen was mur
dered. "I am sure I can't account for his death,"
continued Mr. Miller. "In the army when
a man was shot through the heart he always
fell forward. A man shooting himself in
the head before a mirror should fall back
ward, bnt Mr. t3owen was found lying
under a table. If he did commit suicide it
was the result ot overwork and the Ingrati
tude of friends. So far as I know he had no
domestic trouble, and he lived happily with
his family. I saw him a few weeks ago and
he seemed to be all right"
Mr. Miller denied most emphatically that
a streak of insanity ran in the family. Mr.
Gown s mother was Mary Miller, daughter
of Joseph Miller, of Germantown, a direct
descendant of Sebastian Miller, who came to
this country with Pastorins, the original
settler of Germantown. Major Miller feels
very proud of his ancestors.
Mr. Gowen married Miss Esther Brisbm,
of Snnbury, who, with her daughter, Miss
Essie, survives him.
