Mr. Long was willing to part with the

comnrlitre hnd prtuspd adversely upon the
subject nnd reported, the report of the
committee was unanimously accepted it tut
the hend.imrtersi will not be removed from

Mr. Knhl.int's offer wn presented to

The committee reporte.1 their apprecia
tion of the generosity of Sir. Kohlsnat's
offer, which they weie plensed to note In
dicated that the work of the society was
theteby reconnlzed ns belnir ot n niitlonat
nml lntprtmtlonal character. The work,
however. Is wholly one of Inlluence. It Is
not necessary that the society should have
lame hullilltiRS or Incomes. The work Is
successfully en tried on nt a national ex
pense and th" principles of the organi
zation forbid the headquarters IiMur more
than a bureau of Information, levying no
taxes and seeking no authority. There,
fote the' concluded It to b Inexpedient
lo accept the kind offer. A letter em
bodying the derision of the trustees was
to-night mulled to .Mr. Kohlsnnt. lleside
Ihe routine business and the consideration
of the question of removal to Chicago, the
only matter of general Interest was the
presentation of the claims of l.os Angeles,
C'nl., for the convention of IW. The dele
gales from Iower California, who pre
sented the rtnlms of l.oi Angeles, Included
Leonard .Merrill, state secretary of the
society; Itev. A. V. Ily.ler, and Herbert
Wylle, all of lo Angeles. .Mr. Slerrlll
made the argument and urged as chief
among his reasons the facts that the
city was the only one on the Pneltle slope,
or co.ist that had three railroads running
Into It: that Its cllmnte at this time of the
year was sup.il and unfailing; that the
Kndiavnrrrs there had already raised con
siderable momy In anticipation ot getting
the convention, mid that the business men
of tin place had guaranteed to subscribe
enough to cover the expenses of a con
vention. . .
To-morrow the claims of Portland, Ore.,
San l-'rnnelseo and Seattle will tie pre
sented and the matter taken under advise
ment The trusters then accepted an In
vitation from .Mayor Curtiss.' of Iloston,
to go with other guests nn a trip down the
harbor on the city's boat and to visit the
public Institutions of iloston.
The trustees will meet to-morrow to de
cide the matter of the lSfi7 convention, and
also to take action looking towards the
expansion of the society Into a world's or
ganization. , ,
The reception, accommodation and In
formation committees of the local Christian

Atlantic flly, N J., July 10. The
social session tendered by Atlantic lodge
to the visiting 1311m at the Italtlo ave
nue Casino this evening ended in a ter
rible disaster, In which fully loo per
sons were more or less seriously Injured.
The session had Just opened nnd only
one of the speakers had been heard
when, without the slightest warning,
the building, which litis not been used
for several years, collapsed and fully a
thousand persons were thrown to the
floor beneath. .Many women, the wives
of the vlslllng Klks, went down In Hie
mhis. Fully 200 persons wild were on
the llrsl Hour of the building and Im
mediately beneath the liamiuet halt,
were crushed beneath the timbers and
lay helpless. The fact that till the elec
tric lights In the building; went out nt
the time the building gave way added
to the confusion. An alarm was Im
mediately turned In atid the olty'n force
of 200 llrenien and every police olllcer
In the city were called to the scene as
a hospital corps. The police ambulance
nnd carriages of every description were
utilized to convey the Injured to the
hospital ami to their holds. When the
police and firemen had arrived on the
scene the excitement was so Intense that
they scarcely knew where to begin first.
An immense crowd of people had been
attracted to the place by the noise of Un
failing building nnd the groans of the
unfortunates who were pinned beneath
bricks and timbers. The streets for
several blocks were choked. Tho nit
Wits full of anxious Inquiries for friends
and relatives who were thought to have
been In the building. Within a few
minutes the police succeeded In clear
ing the space In the immediate neigh
borhood of the building and placed ropes
nrotind to , keep the crowd hack.. In the
meantime the llremen had set to work
to extricate the wounded from beneath
the mass of timbers, and they were
aided in their work by the hotelkeepers
and residents near the scene.
livery house was thrown open for the
reception of the Injured, and every availa
ble conveyance wa.s picsfod Into service
to cany them to their hotels. Meanwhile
physicians were on the scene, and were
doing everything in their power to aid the
unfortunates who had been caught In tho
crash. As quickly as the unconscious forms
of the wounded were taken out, willing
hands bore them to the nearest place, ami
everything that surgical skill could do to
alleviate their sufferings was done. The
excitement amidst the assembled crowds
was even greater than that In the Imme
diate neighborhood of the building. All
sorts of rumors were rife. It was m-st
repoited that the building hnd caught lire,
and that, In the consequent panic, many
lives had been crushed out. Then a rumor
enme that the entire edifice had collapsed.
As It had been generally known, however,
that the social session of the order had
been In progress in the building and that
it would In all likelihood be the largest
meetlnir of the session, almost mwi- m.ie
arrival upon the scene was almost frantic
Willi grief nnd anxiety for some relative
or friend. Their fears were, to an extent,
quieted, however, when it was learned
from a good source that no lives had been
lost. In the excitement of the disaster
It was almost Impossible to piociire accu
late details. The list of the Injured can
not be fully compiled to. night, but the fol
lowing are me more seriously tupireil:

It Is -thought, however, the cable from
Spain Is conservative in ehuracier, with a

It Is unfortunate for Sir. Kustls that this
particular story should be published at
the present time, even though he succeeds
In stamping It as baseless, for It is well
calculated to utfeet his future. It may be
stated that he has not found his post to be
particularly nttroetlv to him, nnd some

like to relinquish it. Now, however, jt Is
probable be may have to icimiln In Paris

Topeka, Kas., July 10. (Special.) Gov
ernor .Morrill Is conducting a temperance
crusade aftn- his own fusion over the state
of Kansas. Whenever a complaint Is re
ceived from any citizen of the nou-enforce-mciit
of the prohibitory law, th.. governor
writes at once to the county attorney of
the county where the offense has been com
mitted and demands that the law be en
forced, at the same time referring the at
torney lo the gentleman who makes the
A complaint came from Goffs, Nemaha
county, the other day, and the governor tit
once couiiuuidcatetl with County Attornev
Frank Wells, who responded to-day that
he would prosecute violators to the last
notch If some one would only numo them
to I hem.
The governor also received n letter Of
complaint from K. F. Sloore at Argentine,
"In fact, saloons have been running ever
since people lived here. It Is true they
have been pulled, but have started up
again and have been permitted to continue
their business. The authorities here tell
me that II Is the business of the eoitntv
attorney to close the saloons. Hut at all
events they continue to run here. I know
this, for I have drunk In these saloons, and
a man can get a drink here as easily as he
can get groceries nt a store."
To-dav the governor received a letter
from County Attorney Samuel c. SlllU-r,
of Wyandotte county, In which he says:
"I am glad you have referred the gentle
man to me. I have written him to come over
and make complaints, and I will cause the
warrants to issue as fast as the clerks can
write them. 1 have taken sncclul mide In
getting afler saloons In this county and
have never refused to Issue a cnmpluint in
a solltarv case, nor shall 1; but It Is a hard
matter to get people In Ibis county to
awear to a complaint. Sly experience has
been that those who talk most act least.
If people, Instead of worrying yon, would
come to me with llielr complaint:) and
swear to them, they would be doing what
they ought to do."
