New York, Oct. 9. — Special Co
lumbian celebration services were held
in most of the churches today. The
choirs of some churches were assisted by
orchestras, and elaborate musical pro
grammes we;e given. All the discourses
were prepared with special considera
tion for children, so the youngest at
tendant could appreciate the importance
of the service. This evening the Italian
colony, under the auspices of Minister
Baron Fava, began the Columbian cele
bration at Lenox lyceum. with a concert
and discourse by Dr. Luigl Raverai on
All day long there waa a den** crowd
on Filth avenue, Broadway airtt other
important streets, viewing the decora
tions, tlaga and bannera streaming from
every pole, and the march of four big
processions. Broadway is pow a kaleid
oscope of changing colors. The large
office buildings and hotels have been
striving to outdo each other in decorat
ing. The New York Life Insurance
company is striving for first prize.
Between 900 and 1000 incandescent
lights will cover the front of the build
ing in globes of red, white and blue. An
electric star 10 feet high will surmount
these decorations, and beneath it
"1492—1892" will appear in electric
light figures. Besides the illuminations,
tbe front and sides of the buildings will
be covered with 500 American flags of
various sizes?, and a big portrait of Co
lumbus, framed in the national colors,
and surmounted by the American eagle,
will hang on the front door.
In addition to the big stand at the
City hall and in Union square, Madison
square and Washington park, many
smaller ones have been put up. Seats
on all the stands will be free for the

CELEBRATIONS IN THE CHURCHES.
In all the churches there was some
token paid, even if it was but a few sen
tences before the sermon, regarding the
great historical event. In all cases the
loved colore of the national flag fur
nished the groundwork for the decora
tions ; the star-spangled banner was the
chief ornament everywhere. Whenever
tbe cross of a Roman Catholic church
arose, there wae a scene of festival and
rejoicing. It was the Roman croaa Co
lumbus planted on the island where he
first landed, and the great church ex
erted itself in paying a tribute
to him. Everywhere, from the
stately marble cathedral on Fifth
avenue to the humblest of
the mission chapels, wherever the cross
of Rome was laised, there was sung the
Fe Deum Laudamus, and there was
upreared the example of the great navi
gator who wrought co much and gave
all the glory to God. Tbe grandest
efforts of music and illumination and
chanting of prayer and the hymning of
praise were evoked in honor of the
Somewhat of a new sound swepttoday
through the vaulted arches of the great
white marble cathedral—the sound of
national airs, played by a master touch
on the great organ, and sung by 5000
voices with all the fervor of spirits high
wrought by the splendor of the solemn
high mass and an eloquent and fervid
sermon. The cathedral waa beautifully
decorated with the national colors and
the American shield. In the sanctuary
Archbishop Corrigan presided at solemn
SERVICES IN OLD TRINITY.
At old Trinity Rev. Dr. Steele preached
a sermon, in the course of which he
said: "Among the thousands of thoughts
suggested by this day, the first is one of
humiliation. As a people we are dis
posed to brag ai d boast and have inor
dinate confidence in our own powers.
But if we come to view things with an
unprejudiced eye and pass judgmentfree
from self interest, we must say that, as
a rule, our own things are not the best.
The productions of our skilled labor are
not always equal to those of
the older countries. The only things
we have any reason to boast of, are
thope things produced of which we have
nothing to do with, namely our natural
resources and the gifts of God. I feel I
am not going out of my way in sounding
a note of warning to the press. I
would warn the press of its decadence
in its hold upon ihe people, and the
weakening of its power to mold and
guide public opinion. Ido not say this
power has br-en lost, but most surely
there ia great danger of it. How can it
be otherwise, when the press panders to
vicious tastes, and is recognized aa
partisan in national matters?"
At St. Andrew's Episcopal church
this evening, Rev. Dr. Vandewater ar
gued that it is nonsense to dwell on the
fact that Columbus was a Roman Cath
olic. Columbus lived at a time, he
said, when he was obliged to be a mem
ber of the Roman Catholic church, and
that was all there was to it.
COLUMBUS WAS A BAD MAN.
At the Brick Presbyterian church,
Rev. Henry Van Dyke denounced Co
lurabua as immoral, dishonest, and, in
effect, an impostor. It was Ood, said
Mr. Van Dyke, who discovered Colum
bus, and used him as an agent in the
discovery of America. It was the
King of Kings who was back of
that avarice and cruelty which Colum
buß displayed, and caused tbe voyage
to be made. It was certain Columbus
obtained money under false pretenses
on at least one occasion. He was other
wise immoral and guilty of great cruel
ty, and responsible for the West Indian
slave trade that marks a dark spot in
the history of the old world.
At Fifty-ninth street and Eighth ave
nue, today, Italian workmen spent sev
eral hours raising the shaft of a Colum
bus monument. The shaft is 27 feet in
height and four feet from the ground,
and will be surmounted by a heroic
statue of Columbus.
The Dust of Old Chris Offered to Uncle
Bam for a Loan.
Chicago, Oct. B.—A News Washington
special says: A queer Btory is told by
one of the world's fair commisßioners,
who claims that he learned during a
recent visit to the state department that
the remains of Christopher Columbus
had been offered to the United States
as security for a $100,000 loan, at 6 per
cent interest. The offer was made
by President Heureux, of San Domingo.
The commissioner states that, although
the proposition was that the remains
should be taken in security for a loan, it
is generally believed about the state
department that this was merely a deli
cate way of preparing an absolute Bale.
The proposition was rejected, aa the
authorities in Washington have no
authority to make such purchases or

Washington, Oct. 9.—Owing to the
condition of Mrs. Harrison's health, the
president has concluded that it will be
out of his power to participate in the
social events to which he has been as

New York the present week. He has
therefore requested Vice-Preßident Mor

The (Spirit of Unrest Bainpant Among
Omaha, Neb., Oct. 9.—Dr. V. T. Mc-
Gillicuddy, of Rapid City, S. D., well
known as one of the best posted men in
the country on Indian matters, ia in
Omaha, having jußt come from Pine
Ridge agency. Talking today to a Bee
reporter, he said : "I don't wish to pose
aB an alarmist, but the situation at Pine
Ridge is not at all satisfactory just at
present, and has no immediate pros
pects of improving. The Indiana are
sullen, and in many ways show a resent
ful feeling, and unless something is done
to counteract this, there ie danger of
trouble here next spring. The Messiah
spirit iB not dead, and tbe whites must
not depend upon the statement that tbe
Indians are no longer considering the
promise made by Sitting Bull and other
medicine men who led the trouble
two years ago. While there is no
open dancing, there is quiet discussion
of the Bubject, and the fact that the
promise was that the Messiah would
come after two springs, which would
bring the time in the spring of 1893, is
being carefully kept in mind by the In
dians. The government recently paid
the Indians at Pine Ridge $85,000, and
this was used as an argument that the
great father fears hia red eons, else why
should he seek to buy them off? Then
the return from Fort Sheridan of Short
Bull and Kicking Bear has added an
other disturbing element to the already
deeply stirred state of affairs at Pine
Ridge. A most significant thing ia the
fact that there have been communica
tions between the various tribes of a
secret and apparently important na
ture during the summer. There is a
line of communication well established
and constantly used between Indian
territory and British America, and the
Indians all along the line understand

By tho Associated Press.
Seattle, Wash., Oct. 9.—The steamer
Premier, which was sunk in a collision
yesterday, left Port Townsend about
1:30 p. m. for Seattle, in a heavy fog,
blowing her whistle continuously.
When off Point No Point another whistle
was sounded close by, and almost im
mediately afterward a terrific crash was
heard. The fore cabin of the Premier
was smashed to splinters, and the prow
of the Willamette was found jammed
right into the bow of the Premier. The
Willamette was laden with coal and was
on her way from Seattle
to San Francisco. There were
a number of men in the Premier cabin,
one of whom was killed, together with a
boy. The steward, who was in the sa
loon eating his dinner, was instantly
killed. Several other passengers were
jammed in the debris. Some of them
were seriously wounded, and all more
or less bruised.
The stem of the Willamette was so
deeply imbedded in the Premier that
the passengers scrambled over the
broken woodwork onto the collier. The
ladies were handed up first, followed by
the wounded as fast as they could be
removed. Men with broken limbs, and
both men and women with bleeding
faces and bodies, were helped up.
It was soon seen to be impossible to
draw off the Williamette without sink
ing the Premier. So Captain Anderson
determined to forge ahead, driving be- 1
fore him the steamer .spiked to his bow. '
He forced her back on the beach, but
was so tightly wedged in that he could '
not back off without dragging the Pre- 1
mier with him. The tug Goliah, towing 1
out a schooner, was hailed, and she took 1
off the passengerß, bearing them to
Seattle, where they arrived about mid
The receding tide left both ves
sels stranded, and still interlocked
and no further news can be obtained
tonight. Tt ie feared that the bow of
the Willamette was partly stove in.
Although the whole affair occurred in
a few moments, and the passengers
quickly recovered from the momentary
shock and fright, there were some piti
able scenes. One man, whose name is
unknown, was crazed with fear, and im
mediately sprang overboard and was
The Body of One More Victim Found.
The Vessels Pulled Asunder.
Port Townsend, Wash., Oct. 9.—The
body of one more victim of yesterday's
collision between the steamer Premier '
and the collier Willamette, was discov- 1
ered today, It is that of William Rich- J
ardson, a contractor living in Tacoma, ,
but engaged in building the new custom i
house at this place. His body was
found on the main deck, jamrnedunder
the gang plank against the starboard :
side of the vessel. ,
After the Premier was beached and .
had put lines out on shore, it was .
thought that at high tide, with the aid
of the Goliah, the Willamette could pull
away, but the platen of the two vessels
had become so locked that the combined
efforts of the Goliah and tug Tacoma
could not pull them apart. Her stern
was free, but she was aground amid- !
ships, and fears were felt that her back
would break when the tide went out.
Later in the day a more successful ef
fort was made. The tugs Goliah and
Tacoma pulled the ships apart, and the
Premier sank to the bottom, the water
coming up to the main deck rail at half
tide. The Willamette was taken to Seat
tle by the tug Tacoma,
CAPTAIN QILBAY'S STORY.
The masters of the two vessels give
different versions aB to the cause 6f the
collision, and Captain Bernard Gilbay
"I was on deck with the pilot at the
time, and we were trying to locate the
other vessel. There was a dense fog
and I was blowing my whistle
three times a minute. I
heard another vessel's whistle
blowing every once in a while, but not
so often as mine. I kept, the Premier
well to the right and had turned her
one and a half points in that direction,
thinking, of course, the other vessel
would do the same. Only five minutes
before the collision we had passed the
Kingston in that way. All at once the
Willamette blew two whistles and an
other short one, and almost itn medi
ated the crash came. We had slowed
down to about eight or nine knots, and
when the Willamette's three whistles
sounded, I reversed at once. None of
my crew lost their presence of mind,
and as they came to report for duty, I
directed some to get the boats ready and
some to rescue the wounded and dead.
We got the latter out of the wreckage
within 20 minutes. Those able to take
care of themselves stepped on board the
captain Hansen's version.
Captain Hansen, of the Willamette,
gives hia version of the affair as follows:
"We left Seattle between 10 and 11
o'clock in a thick fog, which continued
until shortly before reaching Point No
Point, when it lifted a little. A short
distance further on we ran into it again,
and I sounded my whistle about once a
minute as a warning. I had a double
lookout, and also another officer on the
bridge with me, and aa we heard another
whistle sounding, we were on the alert
all the time. I heard another whistle
on the starboard side, and signaled
two whistles, which meant that both
vessela should go to the port side (left),
PKICE FIVE CENTS.
wMotio r ? m ' Br o n, y«n«wered with one
whistle, which she was sounding all the
all, but only a warning. All at once I
saw a vessel loom up across the Willam
ette's bow. My ship waß i mm! diatX
reversed or as soon as a vessel of 3000
tons could be reveraerj when going at
full speed; but it was too late I had
slowed down 15 minutes before we
struck, so we were not going fast. If wo
had, we should have gone clear throueh

DRUGGED AND BOBIIKD
A Tacomn Real Estate Broker's Tragic
Death In I'hiladc:i»hla.
Philadelphia, Oct. 9.—Chester Gries
sener, a real estate broker of Tacoma,
Wash., died in the Philadelphia
hospital from supposed effects cf opium,
believed to have been administered to
him in a low lodging house at 425 Spruce
Btreet yesterday morning. Grieesener
had been stopping at one of the hotels
here for the past eight or nine months.
He told them at the hotel that he was
a real estate broker in Tacoma, and that
his visit here was upon business mat
ters. Gnessener seemed alwave to have
plenty of money, and made" freouent
trips to adjacent cities.
According to the atory told by himself
at the hojpital before he died, ho came
back here on Friday morning from one
of his trip, and landed at the Arch street
wharf. He says he was met by
two men and induced to entir a cab.
and waa taken to the house at 425
Spruce street, where he was found dyinir
last night by the police.
That he had not been taken directly
there, however, is shown by the docket
of a police magistrate, before whom he
was fined on Friday for refusing to pay
cab fare. At the time of his arrest for
refusing to pay a cabman, he had as 8
companion a well-known thief named
Hugh McDevitt. As Griessener had no
money at the time of his arrest, he had
to pawn his watch to pay his fine. He
left the station house accompanied by
McDevitt, and was then probably taken
to the lodging house. Griessener had no
recollection of what took place there un
til Saturday morning. He took breakfast
that morning with McDevitt, his mis
tress, a woman named Kate Eberting,
and another woman. After breakfast he
says they gave him something to drink,
and he lost consciousness almost im
mediately afterwards, and remembered
nothing more until a few minutes be
fore 11 o'clock last night, shortly before
the police came to the place.
He was taken to the hospital, where
he exhibited Btrong symptoms of opium
poisoning, complicated by indications of
delirium tremens. After telling his
story, Griessener became delirious, in
which condition he remained until he
died this afternoon.
When taken to the hospital, Gries
sener's overcoat was mitsing. Ho had
no money, although he said he had con
siderable when he arrived here. Two
hand bags he had with him had disap
peared, also, and the only thing left him
wias a revolver. McDevitt and the
Eberting woman have been held to
await the coroner's inquest.
The New Survey Moves the Boundary-
San Antonio, Tex,, Oct. 9.— F. P. Car
rillo, a merchant of Frontera, Mexico,
which town is supposed to be located on
the line between Mexico and the ,Un:' j
States, arrived today. He states that
the international boundary surve« is
complete some distance past that place,
and the old boundary line is grei.' ly
changed. The custom house at Fronts i
was found to be nearly four miles so.tb
of the line. Several rich mining pi<->p
erties, which for the past several y«
were worked under the United Ste es
mining laws, are in Mexico, under Ihe
new survey, and the owners are c:
cised, as it means a heavy loss to th»
on account of duties on ore whicl is
smelted in the United States.
