of three bodies wero found this morning.
They were hot, the backbone of one "till

were greatly Impeded by the smoke and
heat which appeared to have increu'ed
since yesterday. Some men were earryin
weter to pour on tbe Are which wat burn

are now removing. Tbe smell of burning

Thf search for tbe missing bodies still
burled In the ruins of tbe Institution of
the lainiaculste Conception was prosecuted
inuuii more vigorously to-day tbin at sny
time ticce tbe terrible catastrophe, tb
freely-f xpieaned indignation of tbe rela
tivet and friends of the ruining ones at tbe
tlow progresa made yesterday bavins; tOK
ffftt of urging tbote in charge of tbe ex
ivatloo to greater eiertloua. Stipei Com
tnlMioner Samuel Strombere, accompsoted
liv a force of thirty men, arrived at tbe
mints f minutes after 7 o'cloaj , and
witb pinks and tbovels commenced turning
vcr the debris under tbe large do'iiiitorv.
The ruini were traoklng terribly all
morning, grnatlr adding to the
ditadvintagtii under whiub the men are
working, and neeetmarlly impeding tbiir
progres. About 10 o'clock the skull of a
grown person was found by one of U
workmen and immediately afterwards a
heap of charred bone, burned flesh and
partly contumed clothing were unearthed.
A rosary, from which depended an unusu
ally Urge croHS, a portion of a sleeve and
bait a pair of spectacles, were found under
tbe bones. Tbe ghastly remains were piled
in two small boxes and carried to the tem
porary morgue on Race street. Fathers
Ooff and Gler closely examined the con
tent of tbe boxes and pronounced tbem tbe
remains of the Mother Superior,
who, until then wu supposed
to have been found Sunday

the gold filling in ber teeth. Sister
Eleutbetia wu called in and after a care
fo.1 examination of tbe rotary pronounced
It that of the Mother Superior. Identifying
It by tbe steel beads and a peculiar link
which futened. the beads together. Tbe
eye-flats wu also identified by Sister
Eleutberia u belonging to tbi Mother
Superior, tbe having the only concave lent

A portion of the girdles found buro4 Into
tbe bones and tab, wu identified by
Father Oier, being of a peculiar make and

Identified all tbe articles a
belonging to tbe Mother Super
ior but wu douotful weather or not the
remains were bere, thinking it possible the
article! were dropped during the excite
ment attending tbe eonfligration. Sister
Mary Magdalen inolines to tbe opinion that
tbe remains recovered 8unday wu Mother
Superior. The identification, however, Is
considered complete, and the body recov
ered Sunday no doubt wu that of one of
tbe other mUsing sisters. Tbe backbone
and upper portion of the limbs of another
riot I m were recovered under tbe west
wing at 10:30, but nothing was found near
tbe remnant of the body by wbloa it oould
be identified. Th gang of men working
under the large dormitory found a pile of
bones and burned flesh at 11 o'clock which
it supposed to represent two bodies, one a
pry small child, the other t well-developed
person. Each corpse or portion of a
corpse is placed in a small box u soon u
found and taken to tbe temporary morgue
to await identification or remain till tbe
unclaimed bones will be burled by tbe
TBI FIFTH BODT
found to-day wu taken from tbe ruins at
noon, but wu nothing except a few bones,
pieces of charred flesh, s small quantity of
clothing and s rosary and is supposed to be
tbe remains of one of the siMer. Mr.
Stromberg states to-day that it would re
quire several days yet to recover all the
bodies, u tbe work is very tedious. Tbe
smoke from tbe smouldering
ruins is suffocating, and it will be
necessary to take out every shovelful of
debris in the ruins before it can be said
that tbe work Is finished. At noon to-day
twenty-six victims had been recovered and
one of tbe slaters stated that only two more
were missing, but, according to tbe
testimony of Sister Eleutheria,
who seems to be the best posted inmate
of the convent about tbe number of per
sons In the building when the Are broke
out, thirty-seven perished and eleven are
still among the misting.
PREPARATIONS FOR THE CNKRAL.
Tbe Catholics of St. Peter's Cbnrcb held

Ralss, Dr. Julius Kohl, Peter Sander,
Adam Russ, Adam mender, Klc Reeb,

until bis return. Tbe meeting adjourned
until tbls evening at 7. The Catholics of this
city and surrounding country are expected
to be present.
Tbe Council drcided to expend an amount
not exceeding $1,000 in the equipment of
a book-and-ladder corps. Tbe two turn
ing societies first offered to furnish 40 vol
uoteer from their members, provided tbl:
was done. Mr, Helnfelden, of tbe ZelU
ung and Stern, laid tbe proposition before
the Council, which, after ft few moment's
consideration, It accepted. Belleville will
soon have an excellently equipped Hook-end-Ladder
Tbe Coroner says he will hear the evi
dence of half a dosen more witnesses. Tbe
Jury do not Intimate what tbe verdl-t will
be, though tbey have probably decided al
ready. The remains or partial remains of twto-ty-ons
bodies have thus far been re
covered. A pastorlal has been Issued by Bishop
Boltce, uklng for masses from priests
throughout the diocese and prayers from

AilOtSO yesterday asornlng a sad oortege
daww op tt the Third Baptist ehvrwh on
Eighteenth and Clark avenue, bearing tbe
mortal remains of Mary F. Campbell, one
of tbe vwiimi of tbe Belleville borror. Miss
Campbell bad for some time been a mem
ber of tbe church, and a large concourse of
people gathered to do honor to her
obsequies. The appalling manner in
wbicb the young lady bad met her drat ti.
bad It visible effect la tbe motion with
which tbe coffln wu watched even ibr
Tbe lut Impreasive rites of tbe i hun h
wi re solemnised by Rev. J. P. Oreen, pus-
tor, who In a long, elegant discourse touch
ed every chord of sympathy for tbe cold uul
peacefuldead, and for the bereaved an i
heitrt-broken family. Again and again, n
the mlnitter pointed out the moral of tin
young Itfe, so rudely and unexpectedly
ended, was tbe emotion of those who knew'
Mary Campbell too much tor tbem. It
brought tbe borror of that awful ntgbt in
tbe Belleville home to the families of others
and pointed out so strongly tbe weak nest
and uncertainty of our bold on life,
ibat everyone In the audience wu
di-eply moved. And when the minis
ter described tbe young lady a
be and her friends bad known her, ever
llgbt-hearted and happy, but earnest in
duty and earnest in doing good, the ten
sion became almost painful, even among
those who bad come merely for curioKti v.
1 be last sad offloes of friendship ltl
found expressions In wealth of flural of
ferings, wbicb covered the casket and tin
bier, und testified bow many people bad
loved tbe dead. Conspiouous amou - these
was a pillow with the word "Mary"
worked in immortelles, and a wreath and
anchor symbolical of the hope and tbe re
ward, which took the agony out of tbe aw
' n 1 death the lady died.
Tbe services ended, the pall-brarers--W.
M. Senter, Alexander Mackey, R. K.
Koacb, Harry Parks, Rochester Ford and
A. D. Cadwallader took up tbelr sad bur
den, and shortly the funeral cortege w
passing on to quiet Bellefontaioe, where.
amid tbe sighing evergreens and the deso-
ate landscape, all that wu mortal of Mary
Cxmpbell will be left to solitude.

WASFflHOTOST, Jso. a. Several pounds
of manuscript were sent to tbe Senate to
day from the Interior Department, con
taining Information relating to the land
grant of tbe New Orleans Pacific Railroad,
called for upon a resolution offered by
Senator Van Wyck. It tells bow tbe New
Orleans, Baton Bongo and Vlcktburg Rail
way Company, a paper organization, act
ing In company with the Texu Pacific ob
tained, in 1871 a land grant for
nearlr a million of acres of land. Bonds
were Issued upon the face value of the
unearned land grant and tbe public Is
swindled by tbelr sale. Tbe land grant
lapsed, and E. W. Wneelock of the New
Orleans Paotfie got hold of the alleged prox
ies of 42,77ft shares of the company, whose
stock now Is practically worthless. Hold
ing a meeting all by himself, he uslgns to
himself the expired land grant. He then
came to tbe Interior Department and
ikej to have the New Orleans Pacific
Road examined officially, u the usignee of
the paper company's desd grant. It is
shown by A. M. Gibson, one of tbe attor
neys for the Indignant creditors, tbat tbe
New Orleans Paolflo Railway bad been built
at a profit of 600 to TOO per centj by tbe
American Railway Improvement Company,
and tbat these enormous profits, squeezed
from the stockholders, had been divide!
between tbe officers of tbe Improvement
Company sod the New Orleans Pacific.
Ttieoe aame men bave already mort
gaged the lands, the claim, for 4,000,000.
They have succeeded in convincing
Secretary Teller of tha validity of their
cUlmt to tbls land. With tbe aid of Attorney-General
Brewster decision in favor
of tbe validity of the claim wu made,
which wu used as a buls for tbe opinion
of Bccretary Teller. Now all the preli mini
nary work of examining tbe road in belnu
done, and If Congress does not take som
immediate action a band of unscrupulous
speculators will have acquired a present oi
property worth $4,000,000 to add to then
already heaped profits.

reported yesterday that tbe ex-President
was better. He visited him in tbe morning
and learned tbat he had taken a walk, the
itfiernoon before. . . .
"Has anything been done In regard to

"It is of no use for you newspaper'
men," replied Mr. HolmA, "to elect a
president for tbs Northern Pacihc. The
directors themselves do not know yet who
to choose. Tbe special committee uj
mitde no decision, and it is at work en.

Another gentleman very closely Identified
with tbe Northern Paolflo said, "I do not

Mr. Horaoe White also said tbat Mr.
Vlllard waa better, and tbat no choice had
yet been nade for president. Among tbe
names mentioned In connection witb tbe

The question of Mr. Vlllard'a losses v
still discussed on tho street. The general
opinion seems to be tbat he It not wholly
wiped out, and tbat he will not bavs to re
turn to bis old profeuion reportlng-in
order to earn his bread and butter.
"But Villard Is not the only ons who bai
lost heavily," tald a broker, yeiterday.
' ' The depreciation In 1888 in all tbe stocks
was simply tremendous, and every bolder
of securities finds bimself poorer lately than
be was a year mo. Vanderbilt bas suffered
from tbe depredation in his stocks-the
New York Central and ita connections.
But tbe heaviest loser next to Vlllard is
Jay Gould. Lut year Western Union stock
depreciated $7,000,000. Mistoun Pacific'
over $4,000,000, Texu Paolflo about W,
000.000, Wabash over $13,000,000, Kan
sas and Texas $6,000,000, making a
total loss of, $38,000,000. Of tbls is,
is not too much to say that Gould's Indl
vidai loseet amount to one-balf, or above;
H.000,000. You remember that on March
18, 1K82, Gould exhibited to a committee,
cotiftiming of Russell 8ag, Cyrus W. Field,
Frank Work and others to prove that be
wu notfln financial ttralU, having secur
ities amounting to about &3,QUO,000 par
value. Since then if is not too much to sav
that tbe depreciation on these stocks on ly
a part of his holdings is over $2,000,000.
Frank Work eaid tbat be showed 133,000
