over the delayed train as greeted the
first whistle of the locomotive about
seven years ago. This mo. ning the
regular passenger will arrive, bring

by more washouts, and trains from
the west, although late, will arrive as
usual. An effort will be made to
transfer the mail and passengers for
the east probably not later than to

Foreign Intervention In theCaro
llne and Marshall Islands.
San Francisco, September 17.—The
schooner Flour tie Lis, formerly fleet
yacht in this harlxDr, arrived in port
this morning, fifty-seven days from
Butaritari, Gilbert Island. Captain
Kustel has been trading in his little
craft for over two years among the
islands of the Gilbert group.
CAROLINA ISLANDS' AFFAIRS.
The last news from the Caroline
group was that a Spanish war-ship had
landed a garrison on Ponape, the
chief island and had taken formal and
permanent possession of tho groups,
which the Spanish have informally
claimed for a long time, A Spanish
colony is to be located at Ponape and
a permanent trading settlement cre
ated. Two years ago the Germans
made a claim for the group, but since
then no government has bad any defi
nite protectorate there.
THE MARSHALL ISLANDS.
At the Marshall islands Captain
lvustel learned that the Germans were
to locate troops for the protection of
the government's interests. A Gor
man gunboat was there recently. The
Gilbert island foreign residents, al
though most of thorn Americans, have
to look to the British war vessels for
protection, for none of the United
States naval vessels have been there
for many years.
Another Overland Hoed Expcctrd
—Real Estate Doings.
San Jose, September 17.—There is
reason to believe that the Southern
Pacific Company will cro long have
two overland lines inoperation through
this valley. Recently surveys have
been made from the branch terminus
at Huron, on the Tulare plain*, to the
Warthen Pass, in the coast range. The
distance from the present terminus of
Hollistcr branch at Tres Pinos to
Warthen's Pass is only forty-live
miles, and it is believed that it is the
intention of the company to make con
nection and have through trains for
the Fast via Santa Clara Valley as
soon as possible. It is reported that
as soon us the tracklayers in Napa
County are through they will be put

THE TRAIN HOHHEHY.
Not Much Taken—Official Zeal—
Holhrook, A. T., September 17.—
The loss sustained by the express
company in the robbery of the Atlan
tic and Pacific train at Navajo Springs
last night is not a serious ono, as the
heaviest money runs are carried
in through safes, and the combination
is known only to the agents at the ter
minal stations on the route. Heavy
rains have been falling in this section
for several days and the trail of the
robliers was plainly discovered this
morning in the mud. Every effort is
being made to bring the gang to jus
tice. Upon arrival at Nevada Springs
a statement of the affair was tele
graphed and B. E. W. Smith, Divis
ion Superintsndent at Winslow, soon
had an engine in readiness, and, with
(Nonstable McKinney, went at once to
the scene of the robbery to organize a
posse in pursuit.

I Associated Proas Dispatches to the llkbald.l
Philadelphia, Btptenibef 17.—The

clear, cool and bright and the streets
were early thronged with people of
all nations. The stand in Indepen

historical hall, had a (eating capacity
of 10,000 and had been tilled for hours
at the time of opening the exercises.
At the front of the stand was suspend
ed a photographic copy of the original
AS HISTORICAL CHAIR.
At the east side of tho stand stood
the great old high-backed chair occu
pied by George Washington as pre
siding officer of the Congress which
adopted the constitution. The Marine
Band discoursed music for half an
hour and 2000 children sang patriotic
airs, which evoked rounds of applause.
A POPULAR PRESIDENT.
When the President and Mrs. Cle
veland reached the stand a general
hand-shaking followed with those
whom they recognized or were recog
nized by; after which, in response to
tutnu tuons applause, they went side
by side to the railing and bowed ac
knowledgments of the compliment.
It seenied as though the cheering
would never die out.
Hon. John A. Kasson, as President
of the Constitutional Centennial Com
mission, after a hymn had been ren
dered by the choir, rose to make the
introductory address. There was great
applause as Mr. Kasson began with
the words: "The one object of this
celebration has been to demonstrate
and quicken the reverence and love
of the American people of all orders
for the national constitution."
HOPES FOR THE FUITKK.
He concluded with the words : "May
the dawn of the second centennial year
be celebrated with increased fervor and
our I'nion gain strength as centuries
roll on. Forever live the Constitution
and the Union I"
THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS.
President Cleveland made a ten
minutes' address, which was received
with great applause. In concluding
he said: "As we look down the past
century to the origin of our constitu
tion ;as we contemplate its trial and
triumph ; as we realize how completely
the principles upon which it is
based" and how ■it has met
every national peril and every
national need, how devoutly
should we confess with Franklin that
God governs in the affairs of men ;
and how solemn should be the reflec
tion that to our hands is committed
the ark of the people's covenant, and
that ours is the duty to shield it from
impious hands. Wo receive it
sealed with the tests of a cen
tury. It was found sufficient in
the past and in all future years will be
found sufficient if the American
people are true to its sacred trusts.
Another centennial day will tome and
millions yet unborn will Inquire con
cerning "our stewardship and the
safety of tlieir inheritance. Ood
grant that they find it unimpaired
and as we rejoice in the patriotism
and devotion of those who lived a
hundred years ago, so may the others
who follow us rejoice in our fidelity
and our jealous love for constitutional
THE MEMORIAL ORATION
Was delivered by Justice Samuel F,
Miller, of the United States Supreme
Court. At the conclusion of the mu
sical exercises which followed the
oration, President Kasson took the
arm of Cardinal Gibbons, and, after
walking to the front of the stand and
paying respects to the thousands of
people, the Cardinal turned around
and faced the President, and, within
the hearing of all who occupied seats
around the circle, offered prayer.
Upon the conclusion of the prayer
the strains of the "Star Spangled
Banner" broke upon the crowd in vol
umes from the voice of a grand cho
rus, accompanied by the Marine
baud. An impressive benediction
was then pronounced by Hey. .fere
Wethcrspcon, of Nashville, Term.
At the memorial exercises to-day, as
the benediction was concluded, the
Marine band began rendering a march
snd the President and Mrs. Cleveland,
urm-in-arm, walked to the front of the
stage and bowed again and again in
acknowledgement to the thundering
applause from those who stood in the
square. A wild rush was made over
the chairs und railings in the stand to
the place where they stood, and the
President gave a short but involuntary
reception to those who succeeded in
reaching him. As they passed out
they walked directly underneath the
old'liberty bell, and a solid mass of
people on either side of tho footway
cheered and waved their handker
chiefs and umbrellas until they passed
out of sight. On the street another
ovation was given them, and they
were driven to the hotel.
a monument mooted.
A meeting of the Governors to con

THE PRESIDENT'S REPLY.
Tho President rising replied as fol
lows: "On such a day as this, and in
the atmosphere that now surrounds
him, I feel that the President of the
United States should bey thoughtfully

he occupies stands to-day in the pres

fitting for this servant of the people
and creature of the constitution amid
the impressive scenes of this centen
nial occasion, by rigid selfish exam
ination to lie assured concerning his
loyalty and obedience."
A PRESIDENT'S REQUIREMENTS.
He will find that the rules pre
scribed for his guidance require for
the performance of his duty not in
tellect or attainments which would
raise him far above the feelings and
sentimeiCs of the plain people of the
land, but rather such knowledge of
their condition' and sympathy with
their wants and needs as will bring
him nearer to them, and thousjh he may

San Francisco, September, 17.—
Colonel Charles Chaille Long, the
newly appointed Consul General and

THE COLONEL'S CAREER.
Colonel I.ong was a soldier in the
Union army and in 1869 was appointed
Lieut. Colonel in the Egyptian army.
Finally he was made chief of staff to
General Gordon and was with him
and helped to frame the government
in the Soudan.
For his feats of arms and the suc
cess of his mission on the Nile he was
promoted to the full rank of Bey and
decorated with, the cross of Com
mander of Mejilidieh.
He resigned his position in the
Egyptian army in 1877, on account of
A BRAVE MAN.
Afterward, in 1882, while practising
law before the international courts in
Egypt, Arabi made his onslaught on
Alexandria, and the consular officials
fleeing the city, Colonel Long ac
cepted the post of danger at the re
quest of the American colonies of
Cairo and Alexandria, and ef the
United States Government.
HIS SERVICES RECOGNIZED.
For his services at this time the
Khedive conferred upon him the
Cross of the Commander of Osmanieh.
The State Department also expressed
its appreciation and approval of his
"valuable and humane services" at
